Darren Rowse of ProBlogger has been doing a lot of good writing recently on the importance of having a product to sell and his own results in launching an eBook. Naturally, this has got me to thinking: is there a product that I should be selling?
The book is a product. But, beyond that, I primarily operate on an ad supported basis. This can be a challenging model to win with – as can any model, of course – and the more that you can smartly diversify, the better off you’ll be.
I see pay to access communities like Darren’s ProBlogger.Community, Scott Fox’s Click Millionaires, Lynn Terry’s Self Starters Weekly Tips Elite Members and more and that makes me think, too. Update: J.B. Glossinger’s Morning Coach is another.
I don’t know that I have anything particularly earth shattering to share right now, but I just thought I’d talk about something that has been rolling around my mind. Here are a couple of questions, if you care to comment:
1. Have you been thinking about this, too? Or might you soon? Do you already sell a product? If so, what is it?
2. Is there anything I could do that you’d pay for? :)
