Don’t Stifle Your
Most marketers don’t realize that they’re selling themselves short when it comes to profitable idea generation. Most of us go by the rules – seeking out and the following a proven formula for success.
It’s easy because we read what someone else has said works, implement a cookie-cutter approach, and start to see some results. Even if they’re small results, we’re elated because at least it’s something.
Tiffany Dow teaches, in her new eBook, that you have to veer off the beaten path from time to time and give yourself the opportunity to shine in the spotlight. Unless you create a breakout product or develop an innovative idea, you’ll always be trailing the top money-producers on the ‘net.
If you really want to see the amount of money that you’re making explode, then you’re going to have to think outside the box. Only then will you be able to set yourself apart from your competition in the eyes of your target audience and position yourself as an authority figure in your niche.
You may be able to find that there’s a void that needs filling that your competitors haven’t yet discovered. Whatever it is that your customers are searching for, but are unable to find online, this is where you want to make gains off of the other guys’ shortcomings.
Not following the leader will help you advance in the money game. Be willing to be the first to do something, whether it’s a new traffic strategy you’re teaching, or new customer service technique, or a creative product idea that has everyone buzzing about it.
There are so many different ways to figure out what needs still aren’t being met. You can post a survey or questionnaire on your website asking people what they would like to see developed. You could also ask questions of people on forums or spend some time watching TV or looking through magazines to see what the average consumer is interested in.
Once you find your answer, you need to develop the product that will fill this need. You can even create your own niche for a product that already exists. For instance, people created clothes and display cases for Ty Beanie Babies and made a lot of money off of that.
You could even recreate an older product by looking at books that are now in public domain. These books could be spruced up for you to sell. Your other option is to improve upon an existing product that’s already successful. You would be fixing the weaknesses in a product by making yours, which is better than what already exists.
Be willing to work out your own place as a leader in the marketplace, and don’t fall in line and conform with what’s considered the “norm.” Being different, in the case of online sales, can make you rich. Pick up a copy of Building an eBook Empire today!
