Take Me Out to the (Public Domain) Ball Game

You’ve probably noticed that I talk a lot about information content for online and offline businesses. There’s a good reason for that…you can’t have an information-based business without information! Now that’s obvious! There are other marketers that focus on list-building (need that), traffic (need that), or other strategy or “trick of the month” but without CONTENT, nothing else matters.

I personally believe that the Public Domain is definitely the place to start for YOUR infomation and content needs, especially considering just how much information is available in the Public Domain. I like to call it the One-Two (Three) punch. “One” referring to Books, “Two” referring to Magazines and “Three” referring to Images. With books, magazines and images JUST from the Public Domain, you have access to enough “stuff” to create literally millions of products. Of course, you probably only NEED to create a few.

I often receive e-mails from different ones who aren’t sure where to begin, or what niche to start with, so I’ve listed some general niches that have a lot of potential for products and have tons of content in the Public Domain. I also listed three examples for each one, knowing full well that many of the general niches have dozens or even hundreds of sub-niches. So think of this list as a starting place as you read down through it.

  • Hobbies (collections, crafts, visual arts, etc.)
  • Research (genealogy, historical, science, etc.)
  • Sports (vintage, tips and tricks, personalities, etc.)
  • Animals (pets, training, care, etc.)
  • Historic (major events, famous personalities, technology, etc.)
  • Trades (architecture, building, DIY, etc.)
  • Health and Beauty (skin care, exercise, natural products, etc.)
  • Communication (writing, linguistics, public speaking, etc.)
  • Medical (remedies, homeopathy, herbal, etc.)
  • Food (recipes, farming, nutrition, etc.)
  • Transportation (trains, planes, automobiles, etc.)
  • Bizarre (paranormal, UFOs, unexplained, etc.)
  • Literary (poems, short stories, authors, etc.)
  • Arts (dance, acting, painting, etc.)
  • Science (alternative energy, how things work, everyday science, etc.)
  • Religion (ancient texts, translations, discussions, etc.)
  • Family (pregnancy, child-raising, relationships, etc.)

Just for the sake of it (and for example), I decided to pick just one broad niche (Sports) and drill down into it as far as I could into sub-niche possibilities (please note that this is not exhaustive but will still help paint the picture I want you to see). Below is the method to my madness:


Sports => Baseball

LEVELS: Professional => Minor League => College => High School => Little League => T-Ball

Then you have:

  • Equipment [glove styles, bats, pendants, uniforms, etc.]
  • Officiating [rules, umpires (great and notorious), etc.]
  • Baseball in Other Countries
  • Historic Teams
  • Famous Players
  • Managers / Owners
  • Parks / Fields
  • Great Plays
  • World Series
  • Scandals
  • Improving Your Game
  • Collector Stuff [stamps, baseball cards, patches, hats, programs, etc.]
  • Baseball-related Novels and Books
  • Photographing Baseball
  • Songs Related to Baseball

Within each of the items above, you can often go even deeper. Think about all the teams and players to have played the game. And consider the fact that, to create your Baseball-related products, you would have books, magazines, newspapers, ephemera, photographs, paintings, audios, films and more at your disposal. And that’s JUST Baseball.

So I hope you can see, once again, the huge benefit the Public Domain offers you for your information and content. No other source of information compares!

In “Limitless Blog Content,” I break down exactly how to find a massive amount of content for your niche or sub-niche. The content is there…waiting for you to grab it as use it. Best of all, you won’t have to worry about duplicate content. You can learn more about this fresh approach to content creation HERE:

  • Hi Tony,
    Your post was very insightful. What I wanted to ask you was how you cull that information into making a product?

    I know you do not mean to just republish the outdated content?
