Default You can't go wrong following Glenn's advice. Here are a couple of sites to look at.

I am in Portugal and I sell successfuly physical products via direct response and I want to start selling information products.

I don't think here in Portugal people feel safe on buying e-books, so the solution is to sell physical printed booklets by mail on C.O.D payment. I sell majority of my physical products on C.O.D payment. Probably 90%.

I trying to sell 3 different booklets but with no success:

Teach Tricks to Your Cat
How To Create a Garden With Economical Ideas
How to Keep and Save on Your Car

My question:

What info niches/products you will test to sell ? I see there is an virgin area here to sell booklets via direct response. If there is anyone doing it probably is doing it poorly.

Thank you all.


Here is an eBay site I keep an eye on:

Showing over 11 thousand transactions, at roughly 15 bux each. This might be a good model for you. It is a print on demand business for his info products.

Another thing in addition to the mainstream ideas, the big markets, look for fringe groups too, the "nut jobs" those into UFO, Alien, Conspiracy and secret financial...these people prefer hard copy over digital...

And the survivalists, bomb shelter builders. I suggest a Print On Demand model so you don't need any inventory, but can offer a catalog of information.

Also, I would ask how you plan to advertise? I would advise you to add a sheet catalog, a one piece of paper to all your orders you send out, and give your customers a chance to weigh in on what they want. And a web site, or even an eBay store like the one I linked to, could be useful.

Take note of the many cookbooks he offers as well as all the mystical, magical, other stuff...and he also does the jewelry thing too. Feel free to ask more questions, we're here to help if we can.
