Fleshing Out Your Product Creation Outline


It takes two important things to succeed at creating your product. One is: take that first step – actually start. The other is: don't stop til you're done.

You took your first step when you created your outline. You did create your outline, didn't you? Up to that point, you actually were only toying with the realization that you really can make a product of your own.

Now it's time to give some meaning to your outline topics.

Before you ask me how to do that here's my answer. You go to topic #1, and you write about that topic. Then you go to topic #2 and write about it. And continue through all the topics. If your product is a how to do something then you write first about how to do topic #1.

In the case of my tent pitching example I would first write something like:

Choosing & Preparing The Tent Site

What To Look For In Ground Contour

Before you begin pulling the tent out of its bag you need to select the spot where you'll put it up, and you need to select that site carefully.

It should be as level an area as possible with no deep depressions or high mounds in or on the ground. The smoother, or more level, the ground the more comfortable you'll sleep at night.

It should also be level or higher than the surrounding area. If you choose a site that's lower than the ground around it, you'll end up flooded if it rains.

How To Make The Site Ready For The Tent

Once you've decided where to pitch your tent start clearing all debris from the spot. You don't want any pine cones, sticks, or similar objects under the tent that might be uncomfortable to lay on, or might poke holes in the tent bottom.

Get the idea?

You write all the necessary information you have that helps your reader understand everything there is to know about your subject. Everything that (in the case of a how to for instance) helps him successfully perform the task.

How you do that depends on your experience and how much you personally know about the subject. Your level of excitement about your subject has an impact on the quality of your end product also.

Equally important is your ability to present your material in a way that your reader not only understands but how quickly the reader can put that information to effective use.

As I said about the outline, if you know the stuff you're writing about, and have a lot of experience or passion for that stuff, you'll most likely crank your product out quickly.

If you don't have the knowledge or experience all you need do is research the material, and get a good grasp of the content. And you can easily do that research on video sites, subject-related blogs, and forum sites.

The information is out there. Most people would rather pay to have it all in one place rather than have to forage for it. If you don't want to do the research yourself you can outsource your project to fiverr or another virtual assistant provider. Or you can shop around for a related private label rights (PLR) product, and re-write that in your own voice to get a unique product.

Remember as you continue through this process of product creation it's wise to also begin creating your personal learning library. If you didn't check out Info Products Made Easy yet you can grab it for your library here:


Once you get hold of it, you can store it in your library forever, and reference it anytime you need to.

In my next article, we'll take a look at what your finished product needs to look like, and how you put that together.

Don't miss that. You're on the home stretch now to having your own product to offer to the marketplace.
