More on eBay Articles
doing a little research on the info products on the
eBay Millionaire Treasure Chest, It's time to get to
work on producing an article.
I had trouble cutting and pasting from the PDF reports
on the CD-ROM? Remember also I told you that there
is a way around most problems? Well, I discovered only
a few PDF documents are completely secured. Under
the 'File' menu option of Adobe Acrobat, many authors
allow you to 'Save as text.'
once again I want to stress the importance of making
articles a part of your marketing strategy, here's why:
year or two ago I had several (12) articles placed on
Ezine Articles. This is one of the top article directory
sites to place your articles because this site generates
huge amounts of traffic.
I started receiving reports by e-mail from Ezine Articles.
The reports gave me information on how many times an
article was read in the last month and the key words
that people typed in that brought up my articles along
with others on that subject. This would help me to know
what key words to use in the titles of future articles.
of my most read articles were: "Stay Focused for
Success" and "Do You Need a Mentor?"
Next we'll take a look at the first article I put together
from the eBay Millionaire Treasure Chest.
I sell products related to marketing information I found
a report on the eBay Millionaire Treasure Chest CD-ROM
on the subject of selling info products on eBay.
is a part of the report that I will use for the main
content of the article and all I had to do was to cut
and paste to get most of the work done.
TO PROFIT SELLING INFO PRODUCTS ON eBAY

Sell Information Products On Ebay?
is the Mecca of online shopping. If you can't find
the product or category you are after on Ebay, it's
probably because it doesn't exist.
literally has millions of people with cash in hand
coming into it's online store everyday looking to
buy what ever takes their fancy, and this in my opinion
makes Ebay the bee's knee's when it comes to advertising
few people actually think of Ebay as a viable way
to make money with their information products. The
few who do understand its power are making their
me give you a few examples. Connect to the Internet
if you have not already and have a look at the
following Ebay sellers and make sure to look at their
feedback and see what they have sold!
are only a few examples of people doing quite
well selling information products on Ebay! Of course,
these people are selling Ebooks, but that's not
to say you have to, and I can tell you now, there
are more profitable products you can create that
are a lot easier!
Type Of Products Should You Create
are literally hundreds of ways to make money with
information products on Ebay!, but here are in my
opinion the most profitable and easy to do.
Audio Tapes Mp3's
Digital Videos DVD's
And VHS Membership Sites
all honesty, people who buy information products on
Ebay seem to want to pay less than what you would
if you were selling them elsewhere, on certain
products. Let me explain with examples.
sell well on Ebay, they just don't command a very
high price. This also depends on the subject. If
the information is specialized and there is no other
people selling the product or the same sort of
product in a specific Ebay category, you could charge
anywhere from $9.95 to $29.95 for your Ebook.
I find $19.95 works well.
have to realize that while this doesn't sound like
much, you have to remember that your advertising
costs are basically nothing, just your Ebay listing
fee. You literally have cornered the market with
a few cents for an Ebay bid. Even if your product
doesn't sell, you are out no more than a few dollars
at most with your advertising.
maybe I could ad a few comments and then ad my resource
box including a link to my web site:
people who read this article and click on the link would
be considerd as targeted prospects to purchase the eBay
Millionaire Treasure Chest CD-ROM.
Article Example #2
is the second article that I took from the same report
about selling info. products on eBay.
Kind of Info. Products Sell Best on eBay?

estate is a big category on Ebay and the people
looking to buy real estate are going to be spending
a large amount of money on their perfect property.
So I doubt these people would squabble over $60
or $70 if it's going to save them thousands or
stop them from making a big mistake.

what ideas could you put into a CD? Here are two ideas
I would do myself.
Create a CD full of scanned printouts from free real
sounds a little odd, but let me explain.
who live in Canada and want to buy real estate
in Florida find it very had to get information
on real estate that they want. Why? Because real
estate agents in Canada only stock real estate
information on Canadian properties.
if you were to create a CD full of scanned real estate
listings from where ever live, and sold them in
a CD, you would find you had a very target niche market.
works particularly well if you happen to live in places
like Florida, New York, Australia, France, and
Create a real estate retirement CD. Baby Boomers
looking for that great piece of real estate to
retire are searching the Internet frantically to find
real estate in a great area that's not only going
to be a great place to retire but also rise in
price and be a great investment for their children
and grand children.
CD full of information and pictures and listings of
retirement properties would do very well. All you
have to do is find out what people in that age bracket
are looking for and create the CD.
do this, go to http://www.aarp.org/boards/ and ask
whatever questions you have there. Costa Rica is
good this time of year! Believe me.
are my favorite types of products to sell online.
Why? Because they take no more than a day to create
and if you do it on a very profitable topic, you
can sell 1000's of these reports in a few months.
downside? You can usually get away with selling these
reports for $9.95 and sometimes $19.95, and reports
also lend themselves to copy cats.
a report is simple.
report basically is a small 10 to 20 page document
on a certain subject. An example would be, "How
to make your fortune with residual income affiliate
programs". The best way to write a report is
to put it into a PDF document, and I talk about this
in the next section. If you want to know what
a report looks like, look no further, your reading
CD's are a great way to sell products online.
All you need is a CD burner equipment and your
set. These types of products can sell for over $50.
The best way to sell audio CD's is also to send
them the CD's transcribed into text so they can
read it as well, and this adds more value to the
you really want to churn out audio CD's in record
time and don't want to do the content yourself,
why not hire an expert to talk on the CD's for
a professional in the field to answer your questions
would have to be the simplest ways to create a
product. If you were doing a book on direct mail,
why not hire a guru for a couple of hours, grill
him over the phone or in person, have the conversation
taped, and there you go, instant product.
times people will do interviews with you if you
give them the rights to sell the audio CD to their
mailing lists. If they won't do this, then all
you have to do is hire them for an hour or two, pay
their usually consulting fee (a few hundred dollars
should do it) and you then have no competition
should remember that when I do my resource box that
I should make it clear that the above article was taken
from a report on the CD-ROM and then give the name of
the author and the name of the report. I think I can
get at least one more article out of this report.
Links Directory for Ezine Advertising
I suggested you creat a link directory from the info
products on the eBay Millionaire Treasure Chest. Here
are several links that I got from one report about
selling info products on eBay, you should check them
out for your self.

course. (You should buy solo ads only if possible)
