    Who? - There are a few on here. Your job is to choose the person you feel will be the best for you. Ask them questions, read reviews and get a feel for the right mentor for you.


    You can find many WSO that will show you what your asking, but some are much better than others as sharing there advice on related matters that you need to be a success.

    It's worth searching Google for your chosen topic, finding some free e-books on the subject and subscribing to the owners blog just to have a look at their ebooks. Often they include traffic generation techniques too. I have one on my website you're welcome to download it and take a look.

    It depends.

    Are you looking to pay someone to learn?

    There are plenty of people who offer quality free advice that eventually leads to a paid course.

    Before you start paying people make sure you look around throughout the forum and learn from many of the valuable posts on the subject.

    Also look back at what people like Mike Koenigs put out back in the old days about product creation. I'm sure there would still be youtube content from him on the subject.

    One of the big gurus is someone like Jeff Walker with his product launch formula PLF.

    It is an expensive course but one of those big courses that should probably be on the list.

    There are plenty of cheaper courses on product creation and there is plenty of good free advice around also if you take your time and search it out.

    Most internet marketers would have a course about product creation or know of several because it is one of those cornerstone products that underpins the industry.

    If you have a knowledge of something that you enjoy doing or teaching then you can create an info product around that passion.

    It doesn't really matter whether it is successful or not because your first efforts are always going to be learning curves.

    The trick is to learn and build and get in the groove until you refine your personal style,.

    It may take a while to get it all together but that is what everyone else who is successful and even those that are not yet successful have done and are doing.

    Courses can be a shortcut but they don't remove the real work that goes into creating anything of value.

    You are best off creating some things and learning along the way because then you will find your own path rather than dreaming there is a perfect method out there.

    There are structures and different formulas to follow but if you keep asking questions and joining in the better discussions that take place on here you will grow and become successful if that is your desire.

    Best regards,

    Ozi

    What you are asking is really ... "How do I do online marketing?"

    Before you create any product, you need to understand the problems, needs and desires of the audience you're addressing. The Internet is saturated with courses and ebooks that don't sell because the creator didn't really address the important issues of his target market.

    The best to you,

    Steve

      Good advice back in 2000.

      Unfortunately still taught today.

      Like the advice they give people going on job interviews:

      Worked at one time, but today you there's 100+ people all told the same thing, and you're just going to blend in with the crowd.

      So if your goal is to build a website that looks just like the big guys in your industry, and blend In with them, with the only difference you have no reputation and aren't successful, by all means I support you 100%.

    I recommend first taking a writing course to learn how to write, then studying the art of persuasion, then studying the art of entertainment so that people want to pay attention to your content.

    Then study everything about your topic that you possibly can to make sure your content is the best it can possibly be, otherwise people I can to pay attention to anything you write in your e-book, or anything you write in attempts to drive traffic to your website.

    For driving traffic I recommend giving a more specific answer, at the very least something about your industry, so people can give some sort of directed advice.

    Your thinking is too narrow and vague. Needs to be more detailed and specific. You're never going to succeed with the mindset you have.

    You're looking for an easy answer. I'll save you the trouble:

    There isn't one.

    I would suggest you choose a Mentor and that will be a better step instead of buying low cost products. A mentor will help you to speed up the process and cut all the fluff. If you are self-taught you can proceed with trial and error. Thanks :-)

      Mods this looks like this warrior is just posting nonsense all over the main board just to get the post count up

    I would recommend you try and find an affiliate program that offers something very similar to what you want to create and learn to promote and generate traffic for it. If you're successful, then think about creating your own product.
