But the nut I haven't been able to crack has been creating my own ebook product and being able to sell that.
Creating the product, making the sales letter, getting the infrastructure in place is the easy part. It's after that.
I have two products that I made and have online for years (put them up, mainly left while I pursued other things). I get sales from time to time. Honestly the problem is just getting traffic. I realize that list building is a big thing here, but my products are really a one time thing. It's not that I can just resell over and over again to them. Either the product solves the problem or it doesn't. Some might say that I picked bad niches and that may be so. But these are niches that I've made money with as the affiliate. They're not big money making niches, but something that can yield something decent each month.
In fact one of these products I made was due to the affiliate program going exclusive (cutting me out), so I had to make a product to compete.
I guess what I'm getting at is the process literally just being an affiliate for my own product to drive traffic? Does anyone have some insight or advice on someone with no list, for a one time only product? How should one approach it? How to garner affiliates which create a win-win for both parties? etc.
