    Everyone knows that the money is in the list, however, how can you continuously email people about a subject that you may not know much about or even be interested in it?

    What exactly should i write about to my list if i'm not really an expert in anything?

    Why don't you try to actually become an expert about the subject before you claim to be one?

    Just as gorrior said.

    Focus on the things you like doing and become an expert.
    The concept of faking-until-you-make it is fine, but don't waste your time.

    Consider hiring an expert, or partnering with one.

    To be an expert you need to motivated and driven by the product or business you are looking to promote, having strong knowledge in that field whilst being able to communicate the benefits of xyz.
    You have clearly mentioned you are none of those items and have no intention of being an expert in that field, thus the beauty of hiring a copyrighter will allow you to deliver a well researched, confident piece of persuasive information allowing you to pose as an expert in that field.
    Simply put pay someone else to be the expert and then publish under your own name. Wallah!

    Failing that watch some youtube videos, practice and become a jack of all trades.

    There are 3 sensible options:

    1. Pick a niche you already know something about or have an active interest in - if you go with something that interests you, you will find it easier to absorb.
    2. If you are already committed to a particular niche, then take the time to learn as much as you can about it.
    3. If you are in a niche that you cannot learn about (which is doubtful, we can learn anything if we have the determination), outsource the content writing. It isn't expensive.

    Exactly. If you don't want to spend time researching the subject find someone who is already an expert and have them write for you.

    I'm biased, but that's what good content writing services are for. There are several on BHW.

    Sale phrases like:

    "A lot people don't know what they're talking about but I...."

    You just need to stay one lesson ahead until you have it figured out.

    You can't pretend to be one when you aren't one.

    Anyone who has been into this field with a half brain would be able to catch you if you don't really know what you're talking about as there are thousands of questions which anyone could ask and there's no certain template.

    Hence, I would rather suggest you to keep reading about the thing which interests you, learn a bit more, get to know everything about it and that's it! You're already an expert?

    Why fake it when you can make it?

    That's what PLR, torrent files, download shares and YouTube tutorial videos are for. What ever you need to be an expert in, there's material on the web that can train you, available for free. The free stuff may not be completely current or the best, but it will get you by enough to do a write-up across several articles, or a knock-off e-book to attract possible subscribers into joining a list.

    Either thoroughly research the subject and understand what you are sending to your list, or hire someone that is an expert to write for you.

    Good advise. You'll get better results that way even if it costs more up front.
