But I can't help but think that there are better, more efficient ways to make money online.
Information marketing can be great for those people with good writing skills, and a good level of expertise on a subject, that gives them a great deal of original information to share with others.
For the rest of us, for those of us with no natural writing talent, and no real expertise in anything that helps us to generate original content, we are told to LEARN how to write, and to take the time to BECOME an expert on something, so we can sell our newfound knowledge through info marketing.
I personally have never been good at language or writing. If I appear good at communicating to you now, it's because of 4 years of practicing this shit full time. I don't enjoy writing at all.
Few people will deny that selling information is MUCH harder than selling a physical product. It's much easier to sell a dumbbell, than it is to sell information on how to get big biceps. There is more FREE information on the internet on how to build big biceps, than you could read in a lifetime, so you how do you make them PAY for YOUR information? - Through telling them half-truths and lies in your salesletter of course.
I've had enough of writing salesletters full of boasts and half-truths. I want to do simple, straight-forward, honest selling. I want to provide a service where there are direct benefits that people would be happy to pay for without needing too much persuasion.
So, my question to you is this:
Have you switched from information marketing to selling physical goods or providing a service? How did you get on with this, and what is your take on information marketing?
