Here is an Amazing Public Domain Business that can rack up hundreds, if not thousands of Dollars or Pounds in revenue a month
Selling Public domain products is very BIG business today – the problem is not everyone “GETS IT”, as we are all a bit pre-occupied with the modern methods of doing things – creating digital products & videos of our own, using modern day technology – we have perhaps overlooked the power of “public domain” products…
So, what is the public domain?
Well, a basic overview would be – The public domain is content created prior to 1923 (this varies in different countries, please check eligibility before downloading content to use commercially). It basically is content where because of its age – the copyright, if it existed, has now expired.
Here is WIKIPEDIA’S definition of the Public Domain Now, I can hear people thinking “Who cares about Victorian Locomotives?” or “Who is going to be interested in Making the Perfect Chicken Coup?”.
Believe me, you would be surprised.
Strange as it may seem, even in this Internet fuelled world of Social Networking & Internet Marketing, – Public Domain Information is still very much ALIVE and in DEMAND… and above all, it’s FREE!
All you have to do is take a good look on eBay, to see the many Public Domain products being sold on there, many of which are selling extremely well, because although we are all living in this WONDERFUL Digital age,, people LOVE HISTORY and still have one foot in the past….. Memorabilia ROCKS!!!
What are Public Domain Products? – They are products, derived from prints, drawings, photographs & books from a past era, and then turned into eBooks, CD’s & DVD’s to sell. Most of this valuable content has already been transferred to a PDF format so that they can be easily downloaded and transferred to CD’s, DVD’s etc and turned into themed products to SELL..
One of the most popular public domain sites to get as many free books as you want, most of them in PDF format is at Gutenberg or Project Gutenberg as it is often referred as.
So, whether its “A History of Horseracing” – “Castles of a Bygone Era” – Victorian Motorbuses” or “Building An Outhouse for Beginners” – there is a massive catalogue of VALUABLE information available just waiting for YOU.
It is virtually unlimited – Our fathers & forefathers (and our mums) have left us this wonderful legacy to Love, Enjoy and RACK UP PROFITS FROM! (LOL) – now you can create hundreds, if not thousands of products for FREE, transfer them to CD’s & DVD and sell them on auction sites like eBay or even on your own website or blog…
I hope you have enjoyed today’s Tip.
See you tomorrow
Today’s powerful tip is a little known trick that can really add sales to your affiliate products.
Now, we all know about eBay, it’s the World’s largest online auction – although Amazon has overtaken eBay on occasion for direct traffic, but eBay still remains the King of the online Auction..
Now, what has this got to do with affiliate products ? as eBay don’t allow Affiliate products anyway, Right ? Well Yes & No!
It’s a fact that your ABOUT ME page can contain a link to your website, however what’s to stop your link leading to an AFFILIATE product ?
BUT…. this is not the purpose of today’s tip….. I said Australia, so what’s so unique about eBay Australia ?…..
Well, apart from the fact, it’s DOWN UNDER!… it harbours a very DEADLY SECRET…
It is one of the few (perhaps the only one) that will still allow ads to appear at random, on the HOME PAGE……
So how does this help us ? eBay doesn’t like AFFILIATE products right ? YES… but it likes CLASSIFIED ADS! KERCHINGG! $$$ £££
You see, their is nothing stopping you from creating a classified ad, for a local Australian business etc, etc and actually having the AD, the heading, the body – all about your affiliate product, you could be a local business promoting affiliate products, couldn’t you ? now it’s not cheap, approx $67 for 28 days – but you could be receiving a nice lot of traffic from this method.
TIP – Choose AFFILIATE products with a good percentage of commission, 50% + for a product with a price tag of $50 or less, remember people on eBay still have that bargain basement train of thinking – not everyone, but a lot of your potential audience have., so it may not pay to choose high price ticket products.
I hope you have enjoyed, today’s tip – why not send me a tip of your own ? I can publish it and link it back to your offer, video or website, free traffic for you just for sending a tip to me
