The world needs more people looking for flexible ways of making money to improve their quality of life. It´s not a handful of millionaires, or even fewer billionaires, who are going to make a massive change in the world, it´s people like you. Regular people with more than enough income to live a better life and influence the world they live in.
A product can be a service like teaching or a physical product you sell. It is important to change your mindset to become a creator, especially if you starting charging for something you used to do free before. This is now a product which you are going to sell. It is no longer a hope, you are going to package your skills into a product which will generate an alternative income for you.
What are you offering?
When you create a product you need to satisfy a need or solve a problem. Pain and pleasure are powerful driving forces that make people buy. A good place to start is to offer a product that does at least one of the following:
- Saves time
- Saves money
- Solves a problem
Who are you offering it to?
You also need to know who your target market is. When you identify your ideal customer, it is much easier to find them and promote your product to them than trying to get the attention one of the millions of internet users for example.
- Male or female?
- Age group?
- Product category e.g. gardening
- Product sub-categories e.g. lawn care
How are you going to deliver it?
Once you have decided which topic you want to focus on, you need to decide which format you are going to use to deliver your product:
- Online or offline
- Virtual shop or physical shop
- Selling goods or selling services
You could end up doing a combination of all of the above eventually, but it helps to limit your focus initially so you don´t get distracted by too many options or responsibilities.
