You could have a new product up for sale, making you money, faster than you think.
If you're thinking about making e-books, workshops, digital downloads or other information products, can I talk to you for a minute?
If you want to get your first product out there…
If you want to have an easy way to create new products, any time you want to…
If you want to fill your store with products that people can buy from you every day of the week…
…then you could probably use a system that makes product creation as easy as humanly possible.
For the most part, making a product isn't hard to do at all. What's hard is the stuckness that happens when you're not sure what you're supposed to put in it (or worse, where you'll find the time to actually make the thing!).
Would you like to get unstuck?
Would you like to have a clear and simple plan for your product, one so perfect that creating it only takes a few days?
You can have that. (Even if you've been "stuck" forever.)
You could have a product outlined, created, and ready to sell in just a few days.
I've put a little kit together to help you do exactly that.
It's called Product In A Weekend.
Wanna see how it works?
I'll show you. :)
There's a really simple way to make products people love to buy (that I wish I knew when I started...)
My next product, once I came out of my "blank" months, was a little smaller, a little more focused. It was scary to break from the way I’d always done it, but feedback was good.
My product after that was even more focused, even more direct. Still scary. Feedback was better.
I made one more product, intending it to be the most fluff-free thing I could possibly create. I narrowed and narrowed and narrowed some more, to see exactly how streamlined I could make both the creation and consumption processes.
I became afraid I’d gone too far. Was it too streamlined? Was there no "there" there? Would people feel they hadn’t got their money’s worth?
I held my breath and launched.
I had nine glowing testimonials by the end of the business day.
Remember that part in the second Twilight book, when Edward breaks up with Bella and the next several pages are blank? She just did nothing for four months, so September is blank and October is blank and November is blank, and so on?
That’s about what I did.
OK, then. Lesson learned.
There is a place for big products. There is a place for intensives. There is a place for significant, impressive pieces of intellectual property that take months or years to create.
And there is a place for easy-to-use, easy-to-create products that your customers will buy now, use now, and love now.
This little workshop is about making the latter.
I call them "gateway products." And they can change your business forever.
Customers said things like...
I followed up. Why did my new product make him cry?
His none-too-tactful response?
"Same reason they always do. Daunt. Dread. Fear. Exhaustion. The usual suspects."
This left me speechless.
My first thought was, “You think my products are exhausting to YOU? Imagine what it was like for ME!”
My next? “Oh my God, my customers think these things are exhausting as I do!”
I was dumbfounded. I was killing myself to make these epic tomes, and the words one of my BEST customers used to describe them were daunt, dread, fear, and exhaustion? I thought I was killing myself to do them a favor. It turned out I was killing them, too, while I was at it.
I'll start with a confession.
I didn’t always take the easy way. (Far from it, actually.)
For the first several years of my career, I made huge products that took forever to create. They took weeks, months… one time, even an entire calendar year.
Those weeks and months were terrible. They were made up of stress, and long days, and exhaustion. I had a little kid at home who wanted to play and I was leaving the computer exhausted. Exciting opportunities crossed my desk and I didn’t have the energy to follow up. I laid in bed at night thinking about what I had to work on tomorrow.
One day, a few years ago, I got an email from a good friend and customer. He wanted to give me congratulations on a recent product launch. Here’s the email:

13 Reasons Why This May Be The
Perfect Time To Pick Up
Product In A Weekend...
If you want to start making your first sales...
Gateway products are the easiest products to design and create (and by far the easiest to sell), so you'd be hard pressed to find a more streamlined way to start making money. You'll love how simple the Product In A Weekend workbook makes the process.
Because gateway products are easy for the buyer to consume, the chances of them wanting more of them from you go way up. And since they're designed to be affordable, repeat sales are much more accessible than they'd be with higher-priced offerings.
If you want to cultivate repeat buyers...
Products made with Product In A Weekend are perfectly suited for passive sales, because they're easy to feature on blog posts, in emails and even in paid ads. The straightforward nature of gateway products means you'll never have to feel awkward about promoting again.
If you want to boost passive sales...
Already have some traffic? Or people on your list? Buyers-to-be are sitting right under your nose - people who have been waiting to buy from you, when the right offer comes along at the right price. Product In A Weekend can help you create the products they've been waiting for.
If you want to get more buyers from existing traffic...
Expert credibility can get established pretty quickly when people see that you have one or more products available for the topics you cover. There's no faster way to create a whole batch of authority-establishing products for sale than with the Product In A Weekend process.
If you want to establish yourself as an expert...
Products are a powerful way to let your audience (and also your peers) know that you're on track for growth. When people see you come out with a new product... and another... and another... it gets more attention on you as people watch to see what you do next.
If you want to let people know you're going places...

If you want marketing to be easier...
Gateway products are easily and quickly consumable, so your buyers get to that happy "that was worth it!" place fast. Happy customers who have easy experiences are more likely to tell other people about a product - and Product In A Weekend will show you how to make that happen for you.
