Different Ways to Sell your Products

Once you create digital products that meet the needs of your audience, it’s time to get them out there and into those hands. Before you market what you have created, think about how and where you will sell them. There is more than one option.

I’ll sell on my website won’t I?

That might be the first choice of someone who already has a web presence like a blog or a full site. But this is not the only option. Websites are easier than ever to set up with hosting companies that offer space, templates, management systems and the like so that all the hard work is done behind the scenes. This is all well and good if you are creating a place for readers to view your information and see what your business is all about.

Selling products is another story altogether. A website is not automatically fitted for selling. That will take some research and some extra steps. Plug-ins for shopping carts, delivery systems and email systems need to be added in order for your website to function as a full on e-commerce site. Several choices exist for each of these systems as well.

Other Choices for Selling your Products

EBay – This is the quintessential online marketplace for selling and buying. You can visit eBay and set up your own store separate from showcasing your products to sell at auction. A combination of auction and storefront might make the most profit. Since millions of people use this site, there is great profit potential. Best of all, the marketplace provides all the tools you need for promotion, collecting payment and issue resolution. There is also a forum as well as helpful content to get you moving in the right direction.

PayPal – PayPal is popular with a lot of people who shop online because you don’t have to enter more than the email address associated with the account to pay. Credit card information doesn’t have to be revealed. Sites that offer this as an option have an advantage. And, opening a PayPal account to do business online is free and easy.

Amazon – Amazon.com is definitely making its mark on the Internet shopping world. Amazon is in the same league as eBay as far as visibility and traffic. Creating a page and getting set up here offers many advantages for you because much of the hard work of connecting payment and delivery is done.

Clickbank – You can sign up as a vendor to sell your products in their marketplace. Others who are looking to promote your product as an affiliate can sign up. This greatly increases your sales as well as their commission. The site handles pay-outs, offers payment options and shows you what to do to be successful with them.

These are just a few of the options for selling your products online.

6 Ways to Use Information Products

Does your business need a boost? Consider employing information products to raise not only the level of visibility but also the level of expertise of your niche business. Here are six ways that these offerings can be useful.

What are Information Products?

Another name for them is digital products. They are items that are created by you but delivered in a virtual format. Think of eBooks. The postman won’t deliver a box to your door. Instead, a payment and delivery system is used to accept your money and then provide the link to download the product directly to your chosen device.

Books are not the only thing that can be downloaded. There are a host of digital products to choose from. You, the business owner, are only limited by your imagination and the needs of your target market. People use the Internet to acquire information. These creative digital items can offer your customers what they want in an organized format. Content is still king. Become a member of royalty yourself by using it to your advantage and turning a profit.

6 Uses for Information Products

List building – Everyone wants to make a profit but you often have to give some to get some especially if you are new in the business. Create a special report or a short eBook and offer it free in exchange for subscribing to your list.

Sell for profit – One advantage of information products is that they can work on autopilot for your business. Delivery doesn’t require postage stamps or boxes. Profits can be increased exponentially with the right marketing.

Upselling – While you are using that free eBook to build a list for your business, link it to a variety of products that can be sold. For example, when your new subscriber submits their information on the opt-in page, they are then redirected to a page where they can also have access to an e-course related to the eBook for a great price.

Lead generation – Offer contests on your social media sites with free digital products as prizes. Be sure to remark that on your site what price these products would normally sell for so readers know they are getting a deal. Provide ways for readers to share the contest with others as well.

Newsletters – People like to get things for free as long as it’s good. Send out a monthly newsletter to your list complete with a link to a free video or audio on a subject that interests them. They receive interesting information and another link to more of the same for a price.

Increase visibility – You may market to customers but that doesn’t exclude businesses. Network with other business owners at meetings and on business sites like LinkedIn. Participate but also provide free access to some of your products like select white papers or videos in the spirit of sharing and good faith.

Leverage your products to create a bigger business presence.
