How to Sell Your E-book - or other information product - Through Quickie Seminars
Ive been selling my own self-published information products mainly e-books online for the past 3 years. Is it profitable Definitely.
But as any seasoned information marketer will vouch, it takes time to build up your name recognition online. Youll have to spend considerable effort to develop word-of-mouth web site traffic. Its rare that you start off making $1,000 a day.
But offline its an entirely different story.
In the real world, when people meet face-to-face, a 10-minute conversation with a prospect can lead to a $1,000 sale.
I know this from first-hand experience. You see Ive been in that position several times. How Im an author who uses Quickie Seminars to sell my information products.
What is a Quickie Seminar you ask
Its a 3-hour talk that you give based around the topic of your information product. If you sell DVDs that teach people how to paint murals, your Quickie Seminar would in turn offer similar informational content.
Quickie Seminars are delightful tools for infopreneurs because they can provide you with a same day pay day.
You give a Quickie Seminar on Tuesday, you can take home $200- $5,000 on Tuesday.
Best of all, your competition is slight, if any.
How One Stay-at-Home Mom Uses Quickie Seminars to Make a Years Worth of Salary in 20 Days
I once attended a 3-hour seminar given by a writer named Stacy Banner. Stacy only managed to herd her audience into $1,100 in information product sales that night. However this was just one night from her 10-day Quickie Seminar tour.
She confided in me that by the end of her tour she expects to bring home $15,000-$20,000. In fact, she does these seminars twice a year. They allow her to be a stay-at-home mom, while only working a measly 20 days out of the year.

2 Pitch your talk to seminar centers around the US that are always looking for new experts. These companies provide the room, the audience, and they will actively promote your seminar. Plus youll get paid for giving the seminar.
The most popular seminar center is The Learning Annex.

Whoa! Take Off Those Rose Colored Sunglasses...
As easy as all of this sounds, there are some major snafus that unseasoned quickie seminar initiates commit.
Some infopreneurs do a hard sell. They talk about their book during the entire seminar, constantly referencing pages, and telling the audience, "Well I wont talk about that right now... but it is in my book." This makes audience members feel like they MUST buy your book. Thats no good!
Audience members come for helpful, solid information. Give them what they cam for, and theyll bless you with sales. No hard sell is required.
Other infopreneurs dont accept credit cards. Big mistake. One thing youll quickly discover is that most people want to pay by credit card. This is especially true if youre selling more than one item.
And still others situate their sales table on a less frequently traveled path.
Place your products on a table within the path of the bathroom, water cooler, or the exit. The more people are required to pass your stuff, the more likely they are to stop, look and buy.
So what are you waiting for
This is one marketing and business segment that isnt oversaturated with a ton of competitors. Get started today and YOU can completely dominate your niche on the Quickie Seminar circuit.
But the only way to win this game is by getting out there and playing it.

You Have To Love The Location, Say These Owners Of Orlando Florida Villas
It has been said that in real estate there are three things that count the most: location, location and location.I recently discovered how powerful this concept can be.
I was all set to write an article predicting the future of search engines, when Yahoo dropped Google and replaced it with its own engine. Now thats big news. In less than twenty-four hours, Google went from about 79% of the market share to about 51%, almost overnight. And what a welcome relief it is too! Being #1 in Google was great, but when you had the misfortune of dropping even a couple of positions you really felt it. Now there will be more stability; if you drop in Google today, your hits from Yahoo will remain consistent.
How Much Risk is Necessary to Grow Your Business
A business owner is thoroughly responsible for their own financial survival and possibly the financial survival of their employees. Business owners, for the most part, seem to be "risk takers", who really dont easily "go with the flow". They are inventive and somewhat confident, as just having their own business does mandate that they possess these qualities.
Writing a Press Release
When dealing with "this-just-in" type information, it is important to understand how to write a head-turning press release. A press release must contain substantial information that you consider to be newsworthy and substantial. Relate the news to the audience. Spell out for them WHY it is newsworthy and why they should read on. First describe your news, and THEN tell who said it, etc. Remember that the first ten words in your press release are the attention-getters, thus should be effective. Use what journalists refer to as plain-style language, not fancy words or lots of adjectives. Stick to the facts; avoid fluff. Provide plenty of contact information the name, phone numbers, fax etc. for the person with the most information about the story to make it as easy as possible for the media to do their job!
Perhaps you’d like to take advantage of today’s great real estate market in housing but feel a little intimidated by everything that’s involved.
