Make Money Online by Selling Low-cost Content-rich Reports

Aug 17, 2007
There is nothing that has motivated me more lately than selling some hot internet products directly from my website. Ever since adding Clickbank products to my site related to my internet marketing business, I have seen a fairly regular stream of sales coming in. The beautiful thing about it is that these products have not been over-priced courses or e-books, but are lower-ticket items in the $5-$25 price range!

You may be wondering how you can make good money online by selling such cheap products. The key is that they are not "cheap" in the sense that they have no value. In fact, they are products in high demand because they do provide exceptional value at a lower cost than other internet marketers may charge. This is why writing short, content-rich reports becomes an important and easy way to generate cash flow for your online business.

I have been considering putting an e-book together of my own since I have written many articles for my business. It wouldn't be that difficult really since all I would have to do is compile the articles I've written into a book with chapters on different topics. I could then offer the e-book for free on my site and to my subscribers, or I could sell it. This is a good idea to boost your business, but what if you haven't written many articles, hate writing, and the thought of creating your own e-book seems like an overwhelming task?

I have just the answer for you! Write a short, content-rich report on some hot topic being talked about all over the web or in your niche-specific forums, and sell it for a small price. Why would people buy your report rather than some guru's over-priced masterpiece you ask? Well think about your own internet surfing habits. When you first hear about a hot item, chances are you won't jump on it and purchase the item right away. No matter how good it looks, you may need some time to think about it, you may need to see the offer more than once, or twice, or three times. You may want to read reviews and testimonials from other people who have bought the item first.

In the time it takes you to think about a new, hot product, you will have started to see many other people talking about making money online with it. At this point, it now becomes a hot opportunity for you. This is when you should start writing a short, content-rich report on the topic - a report that you can promote and sell for half the price or even less than half the price, that offers a brief glimpse of the same information that is in demand by others looking for this product and wanting a better deal.

You can see that it's important to keep up with what's current online. So if you're in need of a hot topic to write a short report about, then there are a few places you can go to find information in demand. My personal recommendation if you're an internet marketer like me would be to head over to the Warrior Forum and read up on what new products are being discussed there, or what type of information people are asking about and looking for on a regular basis. There are thousands of discussions taking place on the internet on any topic that interests you. Join some discussion groups and get involved in the action!

If you don't want to visit a forum, then visit article directory sites and find out what people are writing articles about these days. You can easily get ideas for your own articles and short reports just from reading one or two articles on the topic that interests you and that you want to make money online from. In fact, you don't even have to read the article, just scan the titles of newly posted articles!

As you can see, it's easy to find hot topics to write short, content-rich reports on that you can turn around and offer for sale at a low price that people will jump for. Even just one, or a few sales will keep you motivated to sell more and more and make money online with short reports. Good luck!
