“Here Are Some Of The Secrets You’ll Learn Inside My Udemy Course”

Here’s a sample of some of the great things you’ll learn:

  • This is my favorite 'never fail' way to find product ideas EVEN IN SUPER-COMPETITIVE NICHES - Lecture 24
  • I've tried every 'trick' in the book for creating products and I discovered something I didn't expect. In Section 2, I'll show you the one method that actually works every time
  • The simple thing you can do in your niche to give yourself a whole series of valuable products you can sell individually (or you can wrap them all together into a $497 masterclass) - Lecture 4
  • The CRITICAL step you MUST take when you sell your products to make sure buyers become YOUR customers! Don't Miss This! - Lecture 16
  • Most newbies quit before they finish their first product because they didn't follow this simple rule. I'll show you what to do instead in Lecture 2
  • The right way to approach product creation…(Handle this situation the wrong way and you may end up wasting weeks of time on a product that no one wants) - Lecture 9
  • A fantastic method you can use to 'unfreeze' your brain and start a flow of ideas about any topic - Lecture 4
  • Students told me they learn best by seeing how others do things…so I included real-life examples where you can see exactly how I put a real-life product together…including how I did this course! - Section 2
  • A step-by-step process anyone can use to reveal sellable product ideas within broad (and competitive) niches - Lecture 2
  • Most people completely overlook this idea for delivering your product…In Section 3, I'll tell you how to use this free method to connect with your buyers while creating something valuable you can sell! - Lecture 10
  • In Section 5, I'll show you the 3 platforms where you're products can and should be for sale…most people make the mistake of focusing on just one of these (and their leaving A LOT of money on the table!)
  • I'll reveal the REAL REASON people hesitate to buy from you when you're first starting out…and what to do about it - Lecture 15
  • Would you like to take your 'big idea' and finally get it completed and for sale? In Section 3, I will show you exactly what to do today - including how to start earning money now even if you're ultimate goal is to write a 500 page guide - Lecture 9
  • Unlike most 'other' courses on Udemy, this course is delivered in their preferred teaching method covering the two most common learning styles so you get the proven best learning experience available
  • Most people have no idea how to promote themselves…in Lecture 15, I'll tell you the most effective (and profitable!) ways to spread the word about you and your products
  • How to parlay one product into many different profit streams…no other course shares this insider information (but I'll reveal everything to you) - Section 6
  • Here’s how I turn a spreadsheet into a simple project plan for an information product empire so you never have to wonder what to work on next - Lecture 5
  • The '3-Phase Approach' to writing books that GUARANTEES you'll have a product people want to hand you their hard-earned cash for - Lecture 9

  • Here’s a strategic method for turning one product into three to GUARANTEE you can get the highest profit from your product - Lecture 12

And much, much more…

You’ll Also Get These Additional Bonuses

When you enroll in this course right now, you’ll also get these companion bonuses that I’ve put together. This is my NEWEST information…

In this Bonus report, I address one of the biggest problem new product creators have: They don't know what to do next!  I've had so many students over time write to me and say "…I got my product created but then I got stuck on what all to do NEXT! My checklist eliminates that problem once and for all giving you a step-by-step checklist of what to do so you start making money and growing your email list with buyers. - Section 4

NEXT - Let me show you exactly how I find unlimited ideas for information products and how I secretly get people who are looking for this information over to my website where I can add them to my email list! - Section 8

Here’s How It Works…

When you scroll up and click the green button that says ‘Take This Course’, you’ll go to a secure order page for your credit card information and set up your account with Udemy - if you don’t already have one. After you complete the purchase, you’ll get instant access to my course so you can start right away.

The transaction is completely secure.

The whole process takes a minute or two to complete and you’ll be watching the first lecture within 5 minutes.

Once you get enrolled, I recommend looking through the courses. Watch the lecture for any topic that you need information on right away. Then go back and start the course from the beginning and follow it all the way through.

Keep in mind, the course is yours to keep including all future course updates, new material and changes. PLUS, you can interact with me anytime using the student / instructor chat feature.

Remember: You’ll be able to reference this course over and over again as you’re building your online business.

Here’s a Quick Review Of What You Get

1. Instant access to all 24+ Lectures of my course on how to create information products to sell online.

2. Bonus checklist that shows you exactly what to do after you create your product to get it online and up for sale so you start making money

3. Bonus video where you get to watch over my shoulder while I show you how I find hot topics that I can use to create blog posts or new information products…

4. Students in the course get to interact with me directly via the Udemy chat feature so you can get answers to any questions you have about the course or your particular situation.

Let me ask you, what would happen if this course helped you get to the next level in your online business? What if you got just ONE more sale thanks to the information I share? What would that be worth to you?

Now ask yourself: What if there’s a chance this course will teach you how to create product after product you can sell online and finally have financial freedom? What if you really can take what I teach and finally have more time - time to spend with your family…to travel…to do what YOU want?

How much would that be worth to you? A thousand dollars?  Ten thousand? More? For most people I know, it would be priceless.

Just the possibility of having this kind of success would be worth the investment.  I have personally invested thousands of dollars and four years of my life learning what I share in this course about creating products to sell online.

I only wish that someone had taken all of this valuable information and shared it with me when I was starting out. I wish I would have been able to buy this knowledge and experience for such a low price. And I know that you’ll be glad you made the investment in yourself once you have your first success after taking this course.

Here’s my question: What do you have for sale online right now? If you keep doing what you’ve been doing - will next month or next year be any different?

How would it feel to stop spinning your wheels and start making money?

If that would feel good, let’s get started. Make the decision right now to scroll up and click ‘Take This Course’ and I’ll see you inside…

Sincerely,

Jim Shirley

P.S.  Every tip, every strategy, every technique I share in this course is PROVEN to work. I use them personally in my own business and I know they will work for you too.

P.P.S. This course has a 30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - no questions asked. If, for any reason, you decide this course is not for you, simply ask for a refund.

What have you got to lose?

2 pages

Now that you've completed this section, download this document, print it out, and start making your own blueprint! I've included an example page to get your started...

Section 3: What Type of Product to Create
01:05

Before we begin the lessons in this section, I want to talk with you about choosing the right type of product to create.

06:41

Writing an eBook is the clear choice for delivering your information product...or is it? Writing a book can be overwhelming. So in this course, I show you my method for taking the overwhelm out of writing ebooks (or any book for that matter). This single lesson is worth the price of the whole course!

03:54

In this video, I want to introduce you to the fastest, most efficient way to create info products!

1 page

This download gives you my personal checklist for launching products. Follow these steps and you'll be launching products like a pro!

12:24

In this video, I show you some examples of how I use leverage in my business. The one exception I didn't cover is rolling up smaller products into a masterclass or bigger course. A great example of that, though, is to look at the Sections here in this course. Sections 2 and 3, Info Product Blueprint and Types of Products to Create, these are both smaller trainings I've sold separately in other places. They are pieces to the puzzle of creating info products. Then I bring them together with other topics from my blueprint and turn it into a full course on creating information products.

Instructor Biography

Jim Shirley, Online Marketing & Product Development

Hey there! My name is Jim Shirley and I'd like to help YOU build your online business.

Okay, I'm writing out my biography here because it's required. Frankly, I don't like talking a lot about myself - I prefer talking about you and how I can help you.

But, with that being said, this is what I've got in something of a chronological order:

////////////

FORMAL EDUCATION

Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Public Policy from the University of Denver

Graduate work (on scholarship) in Econ at the University of Denver

I bailed early on graduate school when I got a job in the mutual fund industry.

CORPORATE

In my corporate career, I've been:

- an editor

- a research analyst

- product manager

- product development manager

I've done work with people from around the world including: Africa, Brazil, India, Thailand, China, Europe, England, Canada, Russia, Japan, Australia, Philippines, and New Zealand. And these were not just quick chats - I worked with people in these regions for months and years.

I've started and failed with four online businesses.

And I have 3 online businesses that are going strong today (and have been since 2009, 2012, and 2015)

WORDPRESS WEBSITES

In 2004, I decided to finally learn how to build websites (it was something I wanted to learn since the late 90's). By 2005, I had moved from coding everything myself to using WordPress. Since then, I've helped dozens of small businesses get their business online. I have lost count, but I have built at least 50 websites for my own personal use using WordPress. Today I have 17 blogs / websites online.

WRITING

In 2007, my infant daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease and from that point on, I learned everything I could find out about eating gluten-free.

In 2010, I published my first book - a gluten-free shopping guide (hey, back then it was not at all clear what foods were gluten-free and I aimed to fix that for my family and others like us).

I went on to publish another four books.

I have written hundreds of articles and blog posts for my own websites on topics from eating gluten-free to self-publishing to internet marketing.

Through my various websites, I've created and sold (or given away) information products.

COPYWRITING

Sometime after publishing my first book, I got introduced to the subject of copywriting. It was not by accident - I needed to figure out how to sell online. The late Gary Halbert once said something along the lines of "...if you need a good copywriter, you'll probably have to do it yourself."

Anyway, I spend my spare time learning from the masters of copywriting and then applying that knowledge.

VIDEO

Sometime in my corporate life while working as the product development manager on $20 million a year software product, our technical writer left and we couldn't replace her (some kind of hiring freeze).

Anyway, we were about to launch a new version of our software and we had no updated help documents. So I got Camtasia and started recording 'How To' videos to use instead. They were a hit and I had a blast making them...and I've been making videos of all kinds since then.

If you've gotten to this point in the biography (and you are still awake), go ahead and take my course...I believe you will be glad you did.

Jim
