Are you thinking about kicking off your career as an infopreneur? This when you’re in the business of selling “information products” like books, e-books, premium website access, online courses, and webinars.
While it isn’t a term I use frequently, I’m certainly an example of an infopreneur, largely though professional blogging and e-book publishing (although online courses and premium sites are in the plans as well). In the process of growing my business, I read a lot. Blame it on being a writer. Fortunately that means I’ve come across more than my fair share of good reads, and today I’m going to share some with you.
If you think being an infopreneur sounds appealing, consider reading the following books for inspiration and instruction:
- How to Write and Sell Simple Information Products for Fun and Profit – by Robert Bly
- The Official Get Rich Guide to Information Marketing – Dan Kennedy
- Click Millionaires: Work Less, Live More with an Internet Business You Love – Scott Fox
- The Six-Figure Second Income – by David Lindahl and Jonathan Rozek
- How I Made My First Million on the Internet and How You Can Too! – by Ewen Chia
I know some of these books have hyped up titles that might make some readers skeptical (including me). But every one of these books is on my own bookshelf, and I’m recommending them because they have something valuable to offer. In addition to emphasizing the real work that goes into this kind of business, they all help you figure out the entire process — from product development to marketing.
Not all of these focuses entirely on information products though, so I encourage you to browse their table of contents and reviews first to make sure they apply to the kind of infopreneur you hope to become.
