Don't overthink this. If you’ve ever written blog posts, you can easily create your first information product fast. In fact, you could be done in an hour after reading this.
If you want to create an information product, start simply. If you've written even one blog series, that can be your first information product. Follow these steps to creating your first information product from existing content.
Go over your current blog content. Do you have a series? Do you have blog posts that can be combined to create a good information product? You’ll want to find at least ten blog posts that you can organize and turn into an eBook.
When you find the blog posts that you think can make a good information product grab them by copying and pasting them into a Word Document. Put them into a logical order so that when your buyer reads it, it’ll make more sense.
Once the blog posts are organized in your document, go through and add an introduction, transitions, and a conclusion with action steps for the reader. The idea is to make the content flow. Your introduction should tell them what you’re going to tell them within the information product. Transitions should happen between each new blog post so that they flow seamlessly. You may need to change some aspects of each post so that it flows and doesn’t repeat too much of the same information throughout the product.
Now that you’ve essentially got the content in the document complete, you’ll want to edit it and format it to make it look great.
It really is this easy. You can be done in about an hour from right now if you get started.
Next time we’ll talk about the different types of information products you can create from your existing content. Don’t worry, it’s easy.
