Info Product Dashboard (By Marlon Sanders). A Review

Dec 8, 2007
I got my copy of Marlon Sanders' Info Product Dashboard just a few days ago, and this was my reaction after giving it the first close look-over:

Wow! All the fancy techniques that I've seen other people use and that made me think, "Sheesh! I sure would like to be able to do that!" They're all there! Just to give you an example: instructions on how to put little musical intros at the beginning of my audio products. It's all part of the dashboard's easy-to-follow step-by-step format.

The info product dashboard divides the product creation process into 6 weeks with 6 (daily) steps each. Most of the resources needed to complete them are either free or actually included as bonuses with the dashboard purchase.

Each week also has a brief audio overview by Marlon himself, where he explains the six upcoming steps. I listened to all 6 of the weekly previews immediately, so I have a pretty good idea what I'll be able to do once I've completed the process.

The descriptions are nicely detailed and clear, so I'm finding it all very doable. Besides, Marlon's tech support is friendly and helpful, just in case I (or anyone else) should ever get stumped! Not only that, but there is even a discussion forum where all the new dashboard owners can ask questions that are then answered. Pretty cool!

The only drawback, if it can even be called that -- the first go-around is going to take me quite a bit longer than 30 minutes per step, at least for some of the steps. I'm still working on step one (and two), and some steps will definitely take WAY longer than 30 minutes.

Does Marlon really think we can pinpoint a suitable market and come up with a targeted product for it in 30 minutes? Does he really think we can find, and contact several potential JV partners in 30 minutes, oh, and negotiate a deal with them, all in the same time-frame? He's gotta be kidding! Actually, he does admit that a few steps will take longer...

But once accomplished, those same steps will provide contacts and material for many different future products, so I guess I'll just have to divide the time investment by all the products that I'll eventually develop from those efforts.

Some of the other steps are going to be faster, and occasionally even skippable (such as when they're not applicable, i.e., no video required for an audio product OR if I've already taken care of something, i.e., choose host and/or domain name etc.), so it will even out, especially over time.

Plus, with the second and third and fourth etc. product, the process will get faster and faster!

So just in case it isn't obvious by now, I'm very happy with my new dashboard! And, by the way, if you think it's just for newbies, you may want to reconsider. Yes, the dashboard is easy to follow, and yes, the steps are well explained, so yes, it is an excellent tool for newbies.

But it also offers some very sophisticated techniques, and unless you're a very experienced marketer, you're likely to find at least something useful here, certainly enough to make the investment worth your while.

How would I know that? I already own several product-creation programs, and Marlon's offers tools that I haven't found in any of the others.

Maybe some marketers are keeping the really good stuff to themselves. No matter. Marlon's Info Product Dashboard is by far the most comprehensive system I've come across yet (which is what Marlon said he had in mind when he created it. From everything I've seen, he succeeded)!

Even better, his Info Product Dashboard is priced extremely competitively when compared to most and maybe even all the other even remotely as comprehensive options out there.

I will provide regular progress reports as I work with my new dashboard, so if you're curious and want to know how I'll do once I'll hit the more technically challenging spots, just check my favorite self-help blog for updates... and stay tuned for my soon-to-appear newly created info products.
