Course Description

Your product creation problems solved! Learn how to create an information product from Idea-To-Launch!

Tired of watching everyone else publish, launch, SELL their product, while you are still editing your first draft?

Sick of saying 'I can do better than that' when you download and read the umpteenth information product?

Introducing Product Complete! A step-by-step complete blueprint from idea to launch.

My name is Dee Ankary, and I made my living for over 20+ years creating products to deadlines, and coaching prima-donna designers and developers into a culture of getting it done and shipped.

In  this “Product Complete! How to Create an Information Product“ course, you will get a step-by-step blueprint to create, package, and put your product up for sale.  Delivered in a series of videos, templates and more, it includes:

- Putting together an effective structure for your information product

- Done-for-you templates to use as a baseline

- Composing a killer title that attracts attention

- Creating a slick-looking cover, even if you have no graphics skills

- Crafting a compelling sales letter

- How to format, package and launch your product in two of today's hottest marketplaces, Kindle and DigiResults

…. And all of this using 100% FREE tools.

It's time for you to pull out all those manuscripts, blog posts and drafts that are languishing on your hard disk, dust them off, and put them to work for you.

Put them to EARN for you. 

Put your pearls of wisdom in front of customers who are hungry for YOUR expertise and your solutions. 

Unless you put it in front of them, how are they to know you have the expertise?

Customers can't search YOUR hard drive, especially the one in your head!

But they can, and DO, search the web EVERY DAY looking for solutions to their problem.  A problem you ALREADY know how to solve.

And guess what?

They are willing to pay good money for a solution. 

They are more than willing to shell out for a product that compiles the research and the answers they don't have time to sift through - information you have already put together and know like the back of your hand.

So get that solution out of your head and into your product.  And get that product out there. 

In as little as 42 hours.

Are you ready to rock, begin building your digital assets empire and get your product out there?

Or will you sit by and watch the self-publishing and information product revolution pass you by?

Will you be tomorrow's success story or just another could-have-been?

Take this Product Complete! Course and learn How to Create an Information Product.

Instructor Biography

Dee Ankary, Business and Productivity Coach

My name is Dee Ankary, and I'm an author, online business and productivity coach, and slightly geeky blogger. As the founder of Moonpreneur, a product creation and marketing resources blog, I'm constantly seeking to morph life and business experiences into profitable digital assets in quick, and relatively, painless ways.  

After a lifetime in corporate technology solutions, I discovered that software for the brain is way more fascinating, and now use my tech, NLP and coaching experience to help myself and crazy busy individuals create a more interesting sequel to the 9-5, salary-junkie time of our lives.

I write in English, dream in Italian and have an unwavering belief that enthusiasm will conquer all.
