I advise most people who inquire to consider an ACTIVE site and one year of product development and blogging.
At the end of the year, you have a well stocked blog, an active site, gotten some members on your lists and, hopefully, have sold several reports.
Remember, I had this forum for 17 years, a couple of blogs and heavy participation in other forums too. So, although today I am all about set it and forget it APV sites, it took me some time to get to this point.
Also, I came on the brand new WWW at the beginning and had an early in with several marketers via my writing for Ben Suarez and the NPGS UPDATE HOTLINE.
YOU? I don't know what you want. But I do know if you want to build your own information Empire, an active site, like a blog, would suit you better for the long run. Sure, one report could catch fire like it did for The Boz and you pick up several thousand bux in a couple of weeks, but for the average joe or beginner, that is pretty rare, unless they have a well thought out plan.
It has been almost 25 years since I wrote about the PARADE OF LIFE in the original Chattel Report, The Sprint to Freedom.
In the 2017 revised APV report, there are dozens of ideas on what to write about.
Here are 7 of the top EVERGREEN, Parade of Life, topics which are always in demand and you can build a family of products around one or all, if you are overly ambitious.
In random order:
ONE: Making money. Good golly Molly. It is as Evergreen as green gets. There is an endless parade, which moves pretty rapidly, and they are always looking for money making ideas. We've built this place and a great deal of our information products are in this evergreen market.
TWO: Health. Dien and I have had our share of health problems in the last 17 years, if I have any regrets with my Information, it has to do with not cashing in on the health markets. Today, I encourage people to look within their own families to see health problems, and to share the experience and create a family of products along those lines.
THREE: Food. Just back from two bookstores (yea, they still exist)...and the largest section by far, COOKING. Another of my areas of expertise I neglected over the years. But, you? If you like to eat, consider a family of products in the gigantic food industry.
FOUR: SEX. Or call it relationships, or attraction, or even getting laid. Millions have been made from these niches within the SEX market.
FIVE: HAPPINESS. I don't know how to define it, but I do know millions of people seek it, and spend money searching for it. Great cults have been formed by gurus in this niche, like, Wayne Dyer, Gary Zukav, Eckhart Tolle, Matthieu Ricard, Marrianne Williamson, etc., etc.
Had I been a bit more public, I probably would have started my own cult along these lines.
SIX: PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT. You just ain't good enough. So work on YOU. I guess that is a built in thing. One of my last conversations with Melvin Powers, I asked if he still held the opinion that SELF HELP is a good starting point for a would be publisher, he said, "ABSOLUTELY!!"
SEVEN: SPIRITUAL and/or Entertainment. Some of you might place spirituality in with the Happiness and Personal Development. Whatever you want works for me. I think of main stream religion, which may actually have something to do with spiritual things, but I'm more inclined to stick it it with escapism/entertainment. Movies, TV, books, Podcasts, Radio...and religions all are forms of escapism.
So there you have 7 great Evergreen Topics, and each one could easily produce a family of products for you to plug into your APV sites.
You probably should start an ACTIVE/dynamic web site, with blog or forum, or even a Facebook page and build up for a year, adding at least one, and preferably two Reports a month.
OR, if you have a HOT topic, you don't need to spend more than 30 days getting your APV to the market.
