Small Business Information Products Tip #1 – No Inventory Cost

No InventoryWhat is it that you or your business can offer that will immediately gain the trust of your prospects, requires no storage space and costs you absolutely nothing in inventory costs?

Your expertise.

One of the reasons you should have a blog for your small business is that it helps establish you as a thought leader in your industry. It should also help differentiate your company from your competitors.

So how can you speed up this process?

Create an information product to give away or sell on your blog.

Information products come in all shapes and sizes, but they typically have several things in common. One of these traits is that they require no storage space which means that you can offer them to your prospects at absolutely no cost to your business. You won’t need a warehouse to store your information product. In fact, you won’t even need a shelf. All you will need to do is create the product of your choice, upload it to your blog, provide a link or create an opt-in mechanism and promote it in places your prospects hang out.

You can even automate the whole process, a tip we will be discussing later on in the month.

Being able to offer valuable information and services to your prospects for free or low cost is a powerful way to build your trust, reputation and brand. And with no inventory cost, you really need to ask if you can afford NOT to offer an information product. Our goal this month is to help you figure what kind of information product to offer, how to offer it, what topics to cover and how to create one from scratch so that you can be giving your prospects one of these valuable products as soon as possible.

Stick around, and together we’ll succeed.
