Make Money Selling "information"

By: Bradd Richards

Selling information is a great way to make money. You can write this information yourself and sell it on eBay or on a website. EBay is also a great way to test the waters and see how well your item will sell before you decide to create an entire website for the item.

Anyone can make money online selling information. You can list items on eBay for less than a dollar. At one time I was making over $2200.00 per month just selling information "How to guides" on eBay. The beauty is you write the "How to guide" one time and sell it over and over again. I have sold information packets that I have shipped out and I have sold ebooks (electronic books). A simple document converted to a PDF file. PDF stands for Portable Document Format. Ebooks are commonly in the PDF format, because it can be viewed by anyone with a PDF reader and easily printed out. Most computers have this installed in them already.

Adobe.com offers a free adobe reader. When selling my guides in PDF format, I always include a link to adobe's free PDF reader. Adobe.com also offers a 30-day free trial for their PDF writer/converter. Or try download.com for a PDF converter. This is a simple program that can covert your Microsoft Works or Word files to PDF format.

You can write an information "How to guide" about anything you specialize in. EBay is a great place to do this. I have sold the following information packets on eBay:

* "How to Make a Living at Online Poker" * "How to Start a Home Daycare" * "How to Prospect as a Real Estate Agent' * "How to Get a Job Overseas" * "How to Make Money Reselling Wheelchairs"

For each of these "How to guides" I was either experienced in the area or a family member of mine was. My wife ran a home daycare, my sister worked overseas, etc. Depending on the information you are selling it can be better to sell the hard copy instead of the ebook. If you are selling a business start up kit people see more value in a tangible item being shipped to them, as opposed to a downloaded ebook.

Even though it is the same information. I sold more poker guides in the ebook format because people wanted it instantly. And this is the case with most buyers; they want their information now.

As a side note to this- There is an ebook breaking records at clickbank called ExpressProfitsOnline This ebook share ideas and information for making money on eBay- I haven't read it- Please provide some feedback if you have. It is currently number one on clickbank for the term "eBay"
