This got me thinking, Instead of the latest toy gadget etc Why not create a service where you create websites for people to give children as a Birthday gift.
The parent lets you know what the Childs passion is and you build the site on that. Now lets us say child's passion is horses. You build the site on horses do some keyword research for a decent traffic keyword domain name and build the website or Blog.
Simple enough would it sell for $150? I think not ..... But
What if along with the website you made a step by step guide on how to update the website change it and introduce the child to basic SEO keyword research etc using their site. This tutorial can be very picture based with fun cartoons.
When you put the first content on the site purposefully make
To make this very easy insure that the layout for all the websites is the same, I would suggest Wordpress and make the tutorial fun and informative.
Now when you are selling the concept to the parents you tell them that it is a fun site that will teach the child how to design their own website. At the same time they are concentrating on language and grammar skills etc.
Then you create a challenge for the child where you tell them the keyword you chose and why you chose it. And now if they can use the SEO skills in the tutorial see if they can get to number one for their keyword (make it a game).
You tell them if they write a nice journal or story every day using the keyword, and do a few other things they can use Rank checker to see how they are progressing and can soon be number one or at least in the top 10.
When they reach the first page you can have another 'Sealed' eBook or folder that says 'Do not open until you have reached at least position 10'.
I believe many parents would buy this( I Know I would) as it teaches their kids a valuable skill in a fun way that can make them real money. As an offline product I think it could be very easy to sell, and maybe as an online membership instead of a once off payment.
What are your thoughts?
