If you want to make money, you gotta sell something. And that means creating a product of your own. We call this creating a value based business and it's a simple proposition. However, the suggestion to create your own product probably causes a feeling of resistance inside you.
"Isn't creating your own product too difficult?"
"What if I'm not good enough to teach something in an info product or offer a service?"

If various gurus and the ever-passing parade of online marketing trends is to be believed, there are far easier ways to make money. So, why should you go the path of (seemingly) greater resistance and get your hands dirty creating your own product?

According to one of our readers, there’s a far worse possible outcome: you could get stuck in Pivot Limbo… forever (que dramatic music). Read on to discover what Pivot Limbo is and how to escape…

From the technical aspects of uploading and displaying optimized and compatible videos online, creating professional-level screencast videos or live videos to effective video marketing and traffic-generating techniques, Dave’s the man to talk to.
I need to ask you a question. A very important question. But first, I need to get a rant off of my chest.

Membership sites or continuity programs (same thing) are very popular among Internet marketers. In certain circles it’s almost mandatory to have some type of continuity program to add as an upsell to whatever the latest product is, that you’re launching. And of course, there are also tons of product about how you can get incredibly rich by creating membership sites.
But among all the noise, what is actual fact, when it comes to the membership site model? To find out, I decided to create a survey.
Here are the results:
