Public Domain Profits

Public Domain Profits.

 

How can public domain help you to create extraordinary profits?

 

First we should ask what is public domain?

 

According to Wikipedia it is “works whose exclusive intellectual property rights have expired”.

For books in the U.S. this will be anything that was written without copyright or written before 1923 where the copyright was not renewed.

 

There are tens of thousands of books that are come under this category.

 

“How To” books are particularly popular and books regarding hobbies such as carpentry and needle work as the basics of these never change.

 

These books were popular ninety years ago and they are still just as popular today.

 

Other popular subjects that you can find in the public domain are:

 

Gardening

Business

Sales

Dog Care

Cooking

Dieting

Health

Fishing

Sports such as Golf,Football,Tennis,Karate

Yoga

To name just a few.

 

So once you have a book you want to profit from, once you are sure it is in the public domain you can either sell it on auction sites for anything from $5 up to $15 per time or create your own website to sell it from.

 

How To Profit From Selling Public Domain Books

 

You can either copy on to c.d.s or sell it in a digital format.

 

If you make changes to it you then have the option to sell it as your own work.

 

An alternative is to sell it on Amazon as a Kindle.

 

Using Public Domain Works As Content For Your Website

 

As you can probably see from the list of popular subjects above, most of these are not just popular in book format – they are also very popular on the internet.

 

If you want to create your own website on any popular subject you will have the task of creating pages of content that you can upload for readers.

 

This can be daunting. If you write all of these pages yourself it could take you months.

 

You could also hire writers, but this could cost you a small fortune.

 

However with material in the public domain you could cut your work load considerably.

 

All you need to do is check that the article you want to upload to your website has not been used before using a service such as Copyscape and then copy and paste any pages from your selected works on to your website.

 

 

Within a few hours you could create a whole website, that you could offer affiliate products from companies such as Amazon (if you don’t have your own products to sell).

 

You could also use the content to create articles to send out to subscribers to your email list if you have one.

 

You would also have created a valuable resource – a website – that people could pay your hundreds of dollars for – and sell it on sites such as Flippa.

 

These are just a couple of ways you can make money from public domain.

10 Proven Advertising Tactics To Triple Your Income

10 Proven Advertising Tactics To Triple Your Income

 

1: Always Include A Guarantee In Your Advertisement.

 

Guarantees take away any perceived risk to the purchaser and studies have shown that they can increase sales by up to 300%.

The longer the guarantee the more chance of a sale.

 

2: Add Bonus(es) To Your Offer

 

E.g. “Buy this software/ebook and receive two other titles as a bonus.

 

3: Include Attention Grabbing Words In Your Headline.

 

E.g. “Free”

 

Advertisers know that if they use words such as “Free” in a headline it will grab attention and people are likely to read the rest of the advert.

 

Notice how many times advertisers use this in their headlines:

 

“Buy One Get One Free

 

Buy Now And Get A Free Coupon”.

 

4: Use A Time Sensitive Offer

 

For example “This Ebook Is Limited To $15 For The First 50 Customers Then The Price Will Increase To $20”.

 

Bonuses can be added so that early birds have a discount and bonuses as a reward for committing themselves early to an offer.

 

5: Use The Puppy Dog Technique

 

I have seen this used with water filter/purifier sales. A prospect is offered a water purifier for seven days free of charge and if they like it they only purchase it after the seven days are up if they want to keep it.

 

A very high proportion of people will keep the water purifier as their water tastes so much better.

 

(how many people want to give a puppy dog back after seven days? J)

 

This also takes the risk away from the prospect, as he or she may have reservations before they decide to purchase the water purifier outright before they have even tried it.

 

Something similar could be set up with Paypal where a customer would not be charged for the first instalment of an ebook or some software, but only the second instalment if they were happy with the product.

 

6: Give Free Samples In Return For A Review

 

If you have a new ebook of product/service to sell and you have no list you could offer it free to a set number of people in return for a review.

 

You can then use their reviews on your website to help advertise your product.

 

If the reviewers liked your product, they can form part of your list to review products in the future and they may even purchase from you.

 

7: Continually Experiment With Different Headlines

 

Experiment with different headlines. This is the most important part of your advert – especially on the internet, where you need to grab attention for people to want to read further.

 

If you are writing a headline, have a thesaurus handy (or use one on Google). Look at different words for your headline. You will often find that changing one or two words can make a dramatic effect.

 

8: Advertise Something You Have Purchased Yourself And Are Happy With

 

If you do this you will be able to identify with your prospect’s feelings and any concerns they may have and put them at ease.

 

You will also be able to communicate enthusiastically about the product.

 

This is especially important as an affiliate, so that you can give an honest review of things.

 

If you have found something great you will want to share this with your prospects.

If you have found something you were not enthusiastic about, you definitely will not want to share it with your prospects, as you know that they would lose confidence in your opinions.

 

9: Advertise The Benefits Not The Details

 

By building up all the benefits of a product you will give your prospect an overwhelming urge to purchase.

 

Showing how someone will benefit from your product and improve their life is much more powerful than just listing the details.

 

10: Sell The Sizzle Not The Sausage

 

If you have ever smelt sausages cooking at a stall you will probably feel hungry and want to purchase some.

 

If you knew what they were made of this might put you off.

 

I worked for a company that sold mortgage reduction policies.

 

Their advert would be along the lines of:

 

“Reduce Your Mortgage By Five Years” – Very appealing to anyone with a mortgage.

 

In their advert they did not go into the complicated process this involved as it would deter a lot of people.

Bonus Advertising Tactic

11: Advertise Your Product To Different Sectors Of The Market.

For instance Listerine advertised its product to people that wanted to keep their teeth clean and reduce plaque.

 

When they decided to advertise to people that suffered from halitosis their sales sky rocketed.
