Default Re: Selling Magic Or Reprint Rights

Now the big question... I could put up a website and sell my stuff here and there or I could just sell the rights to all my stuff.

What seems to be a better deal?

I personally think that selling the rights to my stuff would be easier.

I joined a few "magic" groups on Facebook and sold some of my stuff, but not a lot. (I did not push it)

In any case, anyone have experience selling "rights" ?
Hi Millard,

I've never sold reprint rights... Though I've bought many...

Most of the reprint rights I've bought I've used as free bonuses that are given away with other paid products. I can only think of one case where we sold it as the main product...

(I'm not talking about exclusive rights to a product - I've bought those too.)

In the case of the reprint rights product we sold as the main product, we modified it (which was allowed within the rights) to customize it and make it a little unique...

I think, if you're not planning to actively sell the products any more, then what do you have to lose?

(Except your good name, if people misuse it... But you can take your name off of any info-products, if that's a worry!)

But if you're still actively selling the products, then you're creating competition for yourself... There's enough competition already!

At least, that's the way I think about it!

I don't know if you write or wrote newsletters, but that kind of content can also be repackaged as a book or report... I gotta do more of that, too!

Best wishes!

Dien
