A Product Creation Tip You Simply Cannot Ignore

Hola Warriors,

I've seen a lot of mentioning of people quitting, and IM product developers demonstrating concern that their customers don't do anything with the information they buy.

Here's a solution - and it WILL increase sales along with boosting your reputation (even if "silently").

One of the top reasons people quit is due to poor estimation of time investment, ESPECIALLY with Newbies.

Why?

Because when learning a new skill, or trying a new "method", newbies have NO IDEA how long its going to take.

So either they don't do it at all, or they over-invest themselves and burn out.

Just as any good blogger mentions "Reading Time" on his posts, you too simply MUST honestly mention how long a project or method you are teaching is going to take - within your product.

Do this and you'll see testimonials and success stories increase, while being less of a "threat" to your customers.

And you can bet that successful customers will evangelize your product.

It only takes one super happy person to light up the social web....

Hope that helps!

      I think the so called LEARNING CURVE differs from person to person.
      Nothing can help anyone without, they being determined to take action.
      Everything depends upon how well and soon they can implement the plan.

        It is true no doubt as, learning curve differs accordingly as, if there is anything that is beneficial in learning then one should go for it and should not ignore.


        In implementing any plan there is a learning and it is like you learn before making out plans and after it too.

        I strongly believe that if you build learning habbit then you can implement anything that will help you to make out things well.

        Thanks!

        Yes, each person's learning curve will be different for various reasons. Some people have more time to invest. Others have more experience and are able to successfully implement ideas immediately. And still others, particularly newbies, will likely take longer. But once they experience success, the sky is the limit!

  • Lol it's those stories about the "few" who made it in under 24 hours due to timing and a large portion of luck..

    They all use the same methods but some do it better, others time it right and some get lucky with ranking or keyword selection and so much more... for the majority who do eventually succeed it took them hardwork and commitment

      I agree with you ... timing however may not be definitive but if you are caring and understand your audience you will let your buyers/subscribers know the relative time to learn or implement products/services/tools. There seems to be two types of marketers prevalent these days ... those that care and try their best to provide quality products with the right tools and information to use the product/service ... and those that are out to slap something together to get a sale now.

      I don't understand how the latter can be so short sighted. Yes the internet is a big place, but it is a small community and word does get around ... even newbies hear about scammers.

      Thanks for the tip.

    This can be very tricky as well. It could take one person 15 minutes to learn how to use FTP to transfer files over to their host, and another person might take 2 hours to learn to do the same thing (don't laugh, I actually had to sit on the phone with someone for those 2 hours to figure out how to do FTP properly!)

    Even "newbies" have widely differing skill sets, and therefore it'd really hard to predict how long an "average" newbie will take to do something. If you predict things too conservatively and mention that it takes several hours, then it might turn off your buyers and make them not want to purchase your product at all! So as you can see, I think this is a very fine balancing act, and we just need to learn from experience what sort of figures would do best in our sales copy.

    After working with lots of different people I think some are just no good at Internet Marketing just as some people are no good at accounting, plumbing, fixing cars etc.

    You can teach people the mechanics and even teach them how to outsource but if they don't have an entrepreneurial mindset or at least a bit of a business one then it is a very hard struggle.

    There are certain skills that you need to succeed online and unfortunately not everyone posses these skills.

    From my observations most people who do well followed a pattern and then broke away from the pack and developed their own systems.

      The reading time can vary between people.

      For me I am the slowest reader of all time. So my reading time will be different.

      I would agree that if you put a general time on when someone will start to see results is the best for any product.

    It is absolutely right with one small addition:
    very often the beginners are pulled into the wrong strategy or scam system and after several failures they do not have a trust to what they bought. They keep buying without trust. They start implementing without trust and as a result, they give up very fast.The biggest problem for them is to keep in mind somebody's provocative words "you can make money online fast".How many beginners lost their money searching for this "fast"!

    Learning a new skill is very time consuming. It amazes me how many hours of video that are now provided with products. It is as if the person has the time to watch all of the videos. Giving people quick steps to follow through on is much better in my opinion. It allows them to do something and see results quickly.

      Yes. I find that giving my students and mentoring clients 5 minute, bite size, step by step videos works best and far more people actually DO the stuff, I suppose because in bite size chunks like that it seems less work.

  • personally the longer something with more detail the better, I'm not in a hurry and I will take time out. The more detail the better I can improve and expand on that...

    You can account for variations by giving a general estimate.

    It's a matter of INTUITION.
