Before we move on to the basic contents of this report, let me quickly introduce myself in case you do not know me. 10 years ago, I was an overly broke and frustrated fellow. I was living on just N2000 a month. Many days, I survived on only garri and groundnuts. I wanted to be in control of my income and live freely but I didn't have anyone to mentor me and show me the way. So, I started spending my little pocket money on books and searching the internet for information. I went through many days filled with hunger, frustration and anger until things started coming into reality and I started making a good income of N200,000 a month From there, I started investing more money to buy books and programs I could learn from. I started working on the things I was learning and my income grew From N200,000 a month to N250,000 a month to N400,000 a month ... Etc Unlike many Nigerians who have a scarcity mindset and hold on tightly to whatever they know, I believe in sharing what you know especially with serious people. So, I wrote a book (now out of print) that is titled: "How to turn yourself into a live breathing cash machine" The book gives an insight to some of the things that helped me to turn myself to a cash machine. But most importantly, it was a great inspiration to many people.

HIGH ROI BUSINESS 1:
Sell Information Based Products
I don't know if you have heard about selling information based products before or what you think about it. But here is the truth. Selling information is a HUGE money maker that is not going to slow down anytime soon. Why? The world is going to continue to get complex and people are going to need help with figuring out a lot of things. And the good part is that schools can't keep up. So, the demand for good and helpful information keeps rising which creates a huge opportunity for you and I.
Here is what I am trying to say:
What university course can teach you how to sell on Instagram?
> What about how to sell online with webinars?
> What about how to handle a cheating spouse?
> What about how to prepare ofada sauce (a great bestseller by the way)
> What about how to successfully migrate and work in New Zealand or other countries?
> Or what about how to improve your fertility as a man or woman?
These are just 6 out of thousands of information topics that sell like crazy on the internet. Selling information online is what I call - The lazy man's way to riches and that is because if done well, you can have only N17,500 in your bank account right now, no business, no employee, no house of your own But with just a simple information product and a good way to market it, that N17,500 could easily become N175,000 at least within 10 days. I can't even say how much money I have made online selling information. Since 2009 till now, I have made a lot of money selling information on various topics. E.g. There was a time I sold a report on "How to buy low cost laptops and blackberry phones online" That was back in the day when Blackberry phones were in vogue Over a 4 month period, I sold approximately 500 of those at N4000 per copy If you calculate it, that is about N500,000 per month And I was doing this without a business name, office or employee If I had the type of mindset I have today, I could have sold at least 5000 copies
The Information You Sell Doesn't Even Have to Be From Your Personal Experience
Around 2011, a friend of mine got access to a piece of info about wooing a lady. He didn't write the report. The report was just about 10 pages. He ran a N6500 advert in a newspaper and sold about 50 copies at N1500 per copy the day the advert ran giving him an instant extra income of N65,000 Another time in 2009, I bought a report with resale rights to it for N7500. I ran an advert for the report for just N6500 out of my N53,000 or so bank balance that I had. The day the advert ran, I was in a bus on my way to Lagos with a friend when the alerts started coming in so fast. As a result, we had to change the N5000 per night hotel we planned to book before to a better hotel. And instead of staying for 2 nights, we stayed for 5 nights. Another good thing about selling information (apart from the money) is the good feeling that you get from adding value to people's lives When I was selling various reports that helped men with their "other room" issues, I felt good each time someone sent in a testimony of how those reports helped his life and marriage. This is probably why I can't stop selling information. It is probably why I am typing this at 1:31am when others are sleeping.
IMPORTANT: Despite the fact that selling information is a huge money maker, the truth is that not all types of information will make you money. You need to understand that money plays to demand and supply. You can't just think up anything, create an information product on it and expect it to sell. No. It doesn't work that way. Like several times, someone will come to me and say something along these lines: "Hey Toyin, I have a brilliant idea about an information product. I want to create an ebook about that is titled "The complexities of the human brain" LOL! Who cares? If you create boring information products like that, only you and anyone feeling sorry for you will buy a copy.
Whatever information you want to sell has to be about 2 things:
(1) It must help people overcome a problem or frustration: E.g. If you have access to information about how single women can find a husband and get married asap, a lot of women over 30 who are single and under pressure to get a husband will buy it especially if the sales presentation for the book is very good. Hmmm...maybe I should even do something on this...
(2) Or the information must help them move closer or achieve a hot desire that they have: Atimes, people don't buy because they want to solve a serious problem. They buy because they want to get closer to some strong desire or dream. E.g. Because of watching too much Telemundo, a lot of women now have certain cravings. An example is artificial hair that makes them look very beautiful like those models and actresses. This is not basically a problem. But because it is a strong desire, many women spend a large chunk of their money on it.
THE BIG INFO MARKETS
Based on what I just told you, the big areas where most information are sold are...
Topics relating to:
- Finances, Business, Making Money, Investing
- Health, Weight Loss, Beauty, Fertility, Sexual issues
- Dating, Marriage, Relationships, Sex
Under each of these categories, there are thousands of topics that you can work on and make a lot of money from E.g. Let's take business for instance. Under business, you can have marketing and other sub categories like management, hiring etc
Even under marketing, you can still have several subcategories again like social media marketing, video marketing, SMS marketing etc
And under social media marketing, there are other subcategories again like:
- Facebook marketing
- Instagram Marketing
- Youtube marketing
- Linkedin Marketing
Under Facebook marketing, you can even have sub categories again like: - FB video marketing
- FB chatbot marketing
- FB group marketing
These lists keep getting bigger everyday. It is endless. It is CRAZY!
THAT BRINGS US TO A BIG QUESTION:
=> Can one make big money from selling information? I don't know what your definition of big money is but let me just say this. In January 2018, my partner and I created a new campaign to sell a special information package. We tested it and it brought in N2.2m within a week. 100% profit. Many people don't even make N2.2m in 2 years. And yet, we made it from a small test that we ran to promote an information product. As at 2014, my health based information business was making N17m a year which is not bad. There are people I also know (young mostly) who make an average of $10,000 a month only from their information business. One of my friends who is a silent internet marketer in Abuja was making N1.5m a month back in 2009. I am not even sure what his income looks like now. A guy named Peter has an ebook (about 54 pages) on "getting one night stands" with women that sells for $100 per copy. And he was selling an average of 40 copies a day before he sold the business. Think about that. 40 x $100 = $4000 a day $4000 a day is N1.4m PER DAY Some small minded people will read this and say - LIAR! Just like one guy said when I talked about making N700k in 5 days. Well, I am not writing this for such people. I am writing this for the few who will believe and take action. I am not saying your results will look the ones I just talked about as a beginner. I am only throwing these numbers around so that you can realize that this is no Child's play. There are other big guys like Eben Pagan who makes $20m - $30m a year with his own Information business My mentor Rich built an information based business that made $7m online within the first 3 months. Mind you, $7m is the same thing as N2.45Billion And he made that within 3 months selling information The new business eventually went on to generate $20m within the first 1 year. Let me not even talk about another information based business that now makes $1 Billion a year. That is not a typo. That is Capital B for Billion.
LET ME CONCLUDE:
Making money from selling information is mostly about 3 steps:
(1) Start by deciding on a topic that people will buy
(2) Package or Create the information into a product
(3) Create a System to market the information product
Today, you can sell information in various formats:
- You can sell it as a simple ebook in PDF format
- You can sell it as a video
- You can sell it as a full blown course
- You can sell it as an audio
- You can sell it as a webinar, seminar or Teleseminar
- You can sell it as coaching
- You can sell it as a membership content
As a newbie, one of the fastest and easiest ways to get started with this business is by creating and selling your information products as simple reports. And that is because you can get it started without the need for a lot of capital or resources.
That is actually how I started.
