All products start as ideas. And the right idea, turned into a product that you own, can put you in the lap of luxury – as the saying goes…
It's one key to internet marketing success.

You'll find training there that gives you enough methods for idea generation to last you longer than you'll have time to create products from them.
But I want to help you get a start on putting together a product of your own, so in this article I'm going to introduce you to a couple of techniques I know you'll be able to use right away. These will take you a little bit of time. Not much though, and once you get the hang of these methods for finding ideas you'll get faster at it.
This first one involves researching books.
You can put your legs to work, and head for your nearest bookstore or library. You can also do your research at bookstores online.
I recommend Amazon – they make it pretty easy for you.
Before you go, decide what niche your product will be in, and when you get to the bookstore you'll head for the section that houses books about that niche related subject. Your best bet is to find books from recognized authorities in the niche. You also want to select books that have high praises from other figures of authority in the niche.
If you don't know what niche you want you can check the best seller lists for something that tickles your interest.
Once you identify a few books that fit your objective have a look through the contents table. As you read through the contents focus on finding a topic you can “specialize” in.
You're drilling down deeper into the broader niche to find an area – a sub-niche – that you can write an informational product about. You'll create a book for that sub-niche of not less than 20 pages. Ideally, you want to make your book 50 pages or more long.
But you can find books of 15 – 20 pages for sell online all day long. The less fluff in a book the better. It makes more sense to write a short book that's full of high value content than it does to write one that's loaded with filler just to make it bigger.
And that one with no filler is worth more to the buyer because they don't waste their time reading all the crap that does them no good.
Want a sample of what I'm talking about?
Say you decide to create a product about camping. You go to the bookstore, browse through the camping section, and select a half dozen books about camping.
In the table of contents you see a breakdown of topics like camping gear, identifying plants and animals, and hiking.
You choose camping gear, turn to that section, and find it's broken down into camp shelters, camp cooking, building campfires, camp furniture.
Start reading the shelters section and you find some information about tents. So you decide to create a training course about how to pitch tents. One section can be on small tents (pup tents), one for light tents (for hiking), one for 3 to 4 people, and one for large tents (family size).
You can write this in a classroom serious style, in an easy going manner, or in a humorous how-not-to-do-it way. And actually you can create three different products – one in each of those styles. Just a matter of completing one, and re-writing that into the other two.
Anyway, there's an idea of how you can come up with ideas…
Another technique for discovering ideas that I want to tell you about is similar in that you'll use a table of contents to stroke your creative juices. It just comes from a different source, and you won't normally be digging deeper into it than the table.
Udemy is a popular training website where you can find a variety of courses in different subjects. Go there, look for a course in the niche you've chosen, and study its table of contents.
You'll find the individual training topics listed for each class session. You can create your own product around any one of those topics – or group any number of similar topics together for a larger product. And if you don't have enough knowledge about your subject it's easy enough to research online.
Now that your brain is overflowing with ideas it's time to start work on your product. I've found the easiest way for me to do that is to write out an ordered outline of the items I want to include in my product, and use that outline as a step-by-step guide so I don't mess up, and have to start all over again.
And in my next article I'll talk about how to make your outline.
