Physical Product Envy…

You’re at a conference and you see someone you recognize. Smiles flash and you rush together to exchange hugs and greetings. It’s been a while and you’re excited to see each other. During the course of catching up, your friend asks if you have a copy of their new book. “No,” you respond, “I didn’t even know you wrote a book! I’d love a copy!” They take a book out of their briefcase, open the front cover, and write a special note. You flip through it and express congratulations.

“So have you created any new products, lately?” they ask. You go on to share about your latest webinar series and e-book you created. It’s selling well and they are excited for you. And that’s when the awkwardness begins. You’d love to share it with them, but since it’s digital, you have to e-mail them the login information later, if you remember to.  Even though it’s a great product, sharing a link with your friend feels impersonal. That night, you flip through their book and you think, “I need to create a physical book.”

I LOVE creating digital products…love them. They’re easy for me and can be sold any time of the day or night without my personal involvement at all. It’s the ideal product scenario…almost. Here’s the thing…even though I’m pretty prolific (I’ve created over 60 products), the products I love to show off the most are the physical ones! Why? Because you can actually SHOW them to people and GIVE them away. Of course, you can sell them too! The truth is that, as tactile humans, we “need” to feel the touch of things. It makes them more “real” somehow. And because of the “realness” factor, we assign physical products a greater perceived value.

Let me ask you a question…as a professional photographer, if I were to offer you a high-resolution digital copy of one of my photographs or a framed print, which would you take? You would obviously take the framed print because you can SHARE it easier with others. Visitors to your home would be able to see it hanging in your office or den and comment how amazing it looks. You could then thank them and share how it was a gift from your friend. Physical products establish a connection with your peers and audience that digital products will NEVER create.

I recently attended NAMS6 in Atlanta. David Perdew, the event creator, invited me to join the faculty and this was my first event. Knowing that I would have requests for business cards while there, I decided to do something different. I purchased greeting card blanks and envelopes at the local craft store and had 4” X 6” prints of some of my favorite photographs printed at Target. Using two-sided tape, I attached the photos to the blank cards and signed my name on them. On the back of the card, I pasted a shipping label that included my contact information.

At the conference, when someone requested a business card, I pulled out my 5” X 6.5” greeting cards and let them pick their favorite photo. People loved them! A few people asked for more than one. Now let me ask you…when is the last time someone asked you for multiple copies of your business card? Do you think my card will stand out compared to ALL the other business cards collected given it’s MUCH larger than the others? Sure it will! One last thing…David asked we all put our business cards in a bucket for prize drawings. Do you think mine card was easy for the person drawing the cards to find? You bet! I won a portable drive!

The point I want to make here is that, if you want to truly have an impact on your audience, you HAVE to create physical products! You should have a book at the very least. Now before you start thinking that making physical products is hard, I’m going to stop you right there because it’s just not true! Take my cards, for instance. If you can apply two-sided tape to a photo and position it on a blank card, you can make your own. That’s just one example of many…you get the idea! It’s only hard if you make it hard.

Just like with digital products, creating the “right” physical products requires good market research, the right tools and content! The selling process is also a bit different as well. Fortunately for you, I have demystified the process of creating physical products in my course, “Physical Product Success Secrets.” Over the course of four videos, I share a clear plan of how to create your own physical products. Video #1 covers the Mechanics of creating products. Video #2 dives into Research. Video #3 explores the different type of products you can create (and how), while Video #4 lays out how to market and sell those products. Did you know that with physical products, you can tap into a stream of 175 million “buying” prospects that you don’t have access to with digital products? Yep! I show you how in “Physical Product Success Secrets!”

And…by the way…THIS weekend (Labor Day), you can get started with creating your OWN physical products for less…I’ve discounted the course for the next 4 days! Finally, you won’t have to feel left out when you’re at your next family gathering, conference or event. Think about how good it’s going to feel to jot a note and share your product with a smile, knowing that you’ve just touched another person’s life. How cool is that?!

A Video Challenge

Here’s a fun challenge for you

I’ve been speaking at Simple 3: Video Velocity this weekend in Anaheim, CA this weekend and the hands-on workshops have been awesome. Challenging the attendees to actually DO what we’re teaching so that, in the end, they actually have finished videos uploaded and available on YouTube and on their website. Some of them are doing it kicking and screaming…lol…but they’re getting their videos done. It’s very cool.

And that brings me to the challenge…

I’ve been talking about the importance and need to create your own videos. It’s not a suggestion…it’s a necessity if you’re serious about building an online business. Have you created any videos that are actually online yet? If yes…awesome! Produce more! If no, what are you waiting for?

I want to challenge you to create your first (or a new) video TODAY and post the link on my blog so I can see it. I want to know you’re getting this and DOING it! Plus…it could be fun. Now…about the video you’re going to create…it can be ANY kind of video, such as:

  • A Live Action Video: Talk into your video camera, flip cam, smart phone, etc. Share a one-minute tip you can share with the world that can help the viewer.
  • A Screencast Video: Create a quick Powerpoint video on your product or service, or again, to share a valuable tip or insight.
  • A Mixed Media Video: Use Animoto or other video program to create a video with photos, text, music, etc. that shares something helpful, fun or uplifting.
  • A Live Broadcast Video: Setup, broadcast and record a brief video on UStream where you share something of value to your audience (or potential audience).

Once your video is created, upload it to YouTube and share the link in the comments section below of this article. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! And, by the way, if you haven’t figured this out yet, I am offering you exposure to your message on my blog at no cost. Also, for everyone who takes up my challenge and completes it, I will give you a special bonus…full access to my Master DVD Templates and my Master Powerpoint Templates (which currently isn’t available).

Up Against a Wall

The past few posts on using art for physical products…and specifically for prints…has created quite a stir. Paul even went so far as to say:

“Incredible article Tony. This one post is the basis of a potentially full-time job, all by itself. They should start calling you “Mr. Value.”

I like the sound of that…grin.

The truth is that Paul is right…what I’ve shared, and continue to share, can create a great income for you. That’s why I’m sharing it. There is big money in art (in case you haven’t figured that out yet). And so, to continue the discussion on how to profit from art even further, in today’s post, I am going to share a new resource that I just started using. I’m really excited about this company because their business model is awesome, their products and price points are great, and the truly understand third-party fulfillment!

Wall Hogs offers a unique spin on how to “hang” your art on your walls. While they DO offer poster prints, those are NOT why you need to use this company. They offer a technology much more “sexy” than poster prints. They actually give you the ability to produce your artwork or photos as removable vinyl cutouts that adhere directly to your wall. It’s likely you have seen this before. What is amazing about this company, however, is that their prices are reasonable and they make it simple to be a reseller for their services. I like that!

Recently, I uploaded a piece of art that was based on a Public Domain image and initially created as a t-shirt design. the upload process was straight-forward and easy. A minute or two and a Paypal payment later, my artwork was in-process for a 12″ wide vinyl cutout. And the cost? Just $12.99 plus a buck and change for shipping. Resellers get 25% off of those prices.

As you would imagine, my brain is spinning. The opportunities are huge. Wall Hogs is going to get a LOT of business from me. They should get a bunch from you Public Domain Image fanatics out there as well! To learn MORE about the services Wall Hogs offers and to get your own vinyl cutout made (you HAVE to try this…seriously!), check out their website HERE! I highly recommend them!

BTW…what I’ve been sharing in these posts is just the tip of the iceberg compared to what I’m planning to reveal in my upcoming webinar series, “Physical Product Success Secrets.” This new series may be one of the most important series I present this year on how you can build a profitable business using proven content from the Public Domain. Get all the details and sign up here:

Physical Product Success Secrets

Oh, and everyone who signs up by January 26th gets an insane bonus I’ve NEVER offered before…trust me, you would be crazy to pass this up!

Covert Art Research

It appears I struck a chord with the last two posts on creating physical products. I appreciate all the comments and feedback. In this post, I decided to up-the-ante by sharing a clever research strategy and combine it with another sneaky method for finding high-rez Public Domain images. This approach isn’t being taught anywhere so you’re learning it here first!

Imagine how powerful it would be to have 3.5 million art-buying consumers tell you exactly which Public Domain images they like to purchase. Information like that could revolutionize your “art” business, couldn’t it? Think about it…one of the keys to succeeding in business is to know what your prospects want (or the problem they need solved) and providing them with the answer. So, if we had a way where buying customers, and LOTS of them, would tell us what they like through their consistent purchasing decisions, the results would be a good indicator of what WE should consider selling as well, right?

Good news! That is EXACTLY what I am going to show you in this post! There are two websites online that sell a massive amount of art posters: AllPosters.com and Art.com. Between the two websites, they receive 3.5 million unique visitors per month. That’s HUGE! Plus, with each site offering around 500,000 art choices, it becomes pretty easy to consider that we may be able to identify buying trends. What’s cool is that both sites make our covert research pretty easy! Let’s get into the process. It works the same for both sites.

The first step in the process is to identify what the best-selling images are on each site. Below are screenshots that show you where to click to discover that information for each site. On AllPosters.com, you want to click on the circled link, “View more in ‘category’ (Bestsellers)”. On Art.com, click the “Bestseller” link in the top navigation bar.

Once you get to the Bestseller section of each website, you will notice that you have several style options. I typically look at the “Fine Art” and “Vintage” bestsellers, since many of those bestsellers are actually from the Public Domain. The screenshot below shows the top-sellers in the Fine Art category on AllPosters.com. I also want to point out that AllPosters.com is SO kind to actually tell us the copyright date for the art that was purchased! How kind of them…grin.

Now we could stop there and, with just a little time, you would gain valuable insight into which images consumers are purchasing the most…valuable info!  But I’m not planning to stop there. It’s great to know WHAT people are buying, but what about finding the actual files for the images so that you can sell the same images (or related ones) yourself? Check this out…let’s pick an image, like the “Great Wave” image in the #3 position and right-mouse click on it. Choose “Copy Image Location.”

Next we are going to open a new tab and visit the site, TinEye.com. Once there, we want to “Paste” the URL we just copied at AllPosters.com into the “Enter image address” section and click “Search.”

TinEye will search through 1.8 billion images and return results that are identical or similar to the image URL you entered. Once the results are returned, you want to sort the results by “Biggest Image.” You will notice in the result below that our largest result is 4,335 X 2,990 pixels…large enough for us to print a decent 16″ X 20″ print! How cool is that? And, we know that the image is in the Public Domain because AllPosters.com listed the copyright date as 1829!

I hope you see the power in this strategy! Now, to be completely transparent, you will NOT find high-resolutions of EVERY image using the method I just showed you. However, it’s likely that you WILL uncover MORE images than you are currently aware of. Now, for the sake of completeness…let me show you another site that you can ALSO use to find similar image results. That site is GazoPa.com. The process for this site is very similar to that of TinEye, but the results work a little different. Below is a screenshot of my result using the same image URL.

You can see that GazoPa found the same size image as our results turned up using TinEye. I have found in some cases, however, the one site might return results that the other doesn’t, which is why I usually check both!

Okay…that’s it. In just a short period of time, we have not only identified some of the top-selling art images online, but have also discovered a way to connect us with some of those digital files as well so that we can create our OWN versions of those best-selling posters! Go have fun with it!

Art Print Creation Strategies

In my last post, I shared about the importance of creating and selling physical products. It’s a must-do part of your business for more reasons than just making money (like building credibility, new markets, etc)! In this post, I thought I’d continue the discussion by focusing on one of my favorite types of physical products: Art Prints. I’ve been conducting a lot of research on price and quality and have identified the best options for getting high-quality, low-cost prints made.For definition-sake, an art print can refer to any type of printed image, from maps and photographs to labels and posters.

It used to be that if you wanted to produce art prints, say 18″ X 24″ or 24″ X 36″, you had to go to a printer and have them produced in mass quantities to make them cost effective. When I managed the commercial printing companies in the late ’80s and early ’90s, my pricing model started with a base price whether you were printing one copy or thousands. The cost of creating a negative and plate for a job as well as the press startup were always the same. And if you wanted a 4-color job, it was expensive…especially in low quantities. Of course, with digital printing and large-format inkjet printers, all that has changed…and the pricing, if you know where to look, is pretty amazing.

Previously I mentioned Zazzle and CafePress as important considerations for creating and selling physical products. I still believe that, especially when it comes to testing new markets or product designs. But for long-term product creation…art prints for our example today…they are NOT good solutions. When I compare pricing models in just a moment, you’ll see why.

Two of the most popular art print/poster sizes are 18″ X 24″ or 24″ X 36″ and there are several options for having them produced. Some companies (like Zazzle or CafePress) will allow you to purchase just one copy. Other companies require a minimum quantity purchase (typically 100). Of course, in many cases, buying in quantity means a cheaper cost per unit, as we will see. In some cases, however, you may only want to purchase one print initially to test the market, and then increase printing numbers from there. Let’s take a look at our current pricing options for Art Prints.

(Prices are Cost per Print and do not include S/H fees)

Zazzle.com: 18″ X 24″: $19.95 24″ X 36″: $34.95

CafePress.com: 16″ X 20″:  $16.00 23″ X 35″: $19

ShortRunPosters.com: 18″ X 24″: $2.97 24″ X 36″: $9.97

As you can see, the best option by far is ShortRunPosters.com. Their quality is excellent and are, in my opinion, the best solution for short-run art prints/posters. If you find that you need 100 or more art prints of the same image (such as for a promotion or of an image that is selling well), there are better options that will drive your costs down even further. I recently found a company I had not heard of, JiperorPrint.com, who produces all types of printing including posters. While they require minimum runs, their prices are amazing compared to former solutions I’ve used like PrintPelican.com and PSPrint.com. Let me give you an example based on the above sizes.

(Prices are Cost per 100 and do not include S/H fees)

JiperiorPrint.com: 18″ X 24″: $109 ($1.09 per print)  24″ X 36″: $179 ($1.79 per print)

The prices are amazing! And if you bump the quantities to 500, check out the cost per unit:

18″ X 24″: $175 ($.35 per print)  24″ X 36″: $336 ($.67 per print)

Think about this…why purchase 100 18″ X 24″ prints for $109 when you can get 5 times that many for $66 more?! Amazing! Now perhaps you’re thinking, “That’s great, Tony, but what if I want to print smaller sizes? It looks like my options are limited.” Well, I’m glad you asked! The thing is, just because you’re printing an 18″ X 24″ print doesn’t mean the image HAS to be that size! You can fit two 11″ X 17″ prints side-by-side on a sheet or even four 8″ X 10″ prints on a single sheet. So let’s say you want to produce 8″ X 10″ prints of four related images…you could put one of each on a sheet and drop your cost for each of the four down to just $.75 (when printing at ShortRunPosters.com). Below are examples of a recent print order I had produced at ShortRunPosters.com that demonstrates what I mean:

Full Size

Two-Up

Four-Up

As you can see, there are a LOT of possibilities for ganging your prints!

In closing, I want to mention one quick note about using ShortRunPosters.com…they have a $10 flat shipping fee so ordering just one print is still expensive. What I do (and recommend) is order multiple prints of several layouts. The shipping cost remains the same but is spread out over your order of prints. Also, make sure you use as high a print resolution for your files as possible. I recommend NOT going below 180 DPI with 300DPI being the ideal!

I hope that this article has inspired you to consider getting your own prints made. The art print market is HUGE (especially on eBay), and with the cost of prints I’ve shared above, and the millions of images available to you in the Public Domain, you now have ZERO reason to venture into this profitable market! So go get ’em!

Breakthrough Success: The Next Level

Interactive Content Creation: An Experiment

This morning, I had a 5-hour drive to pick up my daughter. When I first began my drive, I thought about the different types of business-related activities I’ve accomplished while being on a long drive. Stuff like coaching calls, teleseminars, masterminds and other phone-related activities (I strongly recommend using a headset or bluetooth device so you can keep both hands free) came to mind. I have also created videos while driving…the camera was on the dashboard. Of course, long drives are also a great time to catch up on audio training and audio books (something I do quite regularly).

Then I got an idea. I wondered if I could create a different type of content while I was driving by using the interactive power of Facebook. So I pulled off the road, made a post to my Facebook wall using my iPad and asked for responses. The results were pretty cool, and showed just how powerful (and fun) interactive, user-generated content can be.

Below is the actual dialog from my Facebook wall from earlier today. The conversation will likely continue to grow. Occasionally you will see where I interjected additional thoughts. Those were the times I stopped for breaks. Enjoy the dialog and feel free to join in below in the comments!

Tony Laidig: While I’ve been driving, I’ve been thinking about the things that cause us to think or act irrationally (not including alcohol and controlled substances…grin). A couple ideas…seeing a friend or family member in danger. As a guy…women…lol. How about you? What makes you do things that defy logic or reason?

Heddy Rhea: Anxiety…and stress.

Heddy Rhea: And should you be doing this while you are driving?? :)

Tony Laidig: At a service plaza…grin.

Monty Craig: Seeing a Semi coming toward me as I am thinking too deeply while driving! Ha ha…

Kristen Eckstein: Dealing with a psychotic client who expects a best-seller quality book cover in less than 10 seconds & bugs me every 5 seconds for it until it’s ready. (I bet you can relate, Tony!)

Apothecary Jeri: Government agencies come to mind ……MVA, USPS …not that it ever happens to me of course :p

Therese Sparby: Things that defy logic or reason?!?!? I do this all the time… Every time I make a commitment that requires faith, and I follow my instinct. (for example- becoming an entrepreneur and building a business to many people… often including myself… defys both reason and logic) :-)

Laureen Falco: I would say one of the things I’ve done to defy logic or reason was to skydive. I’m one of the few – that didn’t really enjoy my tandem jump – and that one minute free fall felt like a lifetime – especially when you’re thinking that this is the stupidest thing I’ve ever done! Had I had a great time – it would have been exhilarating. But the whole time, it was being filmed, and I kept trying so hard to keep my lunch down.

Elaine Ireland: Seeing my kids/grand kids do something that I KNOW is going to hurt them and not being able to do/say anything to prevent it. Sooo, I go do something stupid to compensate for it. Silly, huh?

Tony Laidig: Great comments everyone! Here are a few more I thought of (no I’m not typing this while driving). Unresolved emotions or trauma (like road rage), fight or flight scenarios, fear, faith, peer pressure and my personal favorite…chocolate.

Elaine Ireland: Since when is chocolate…anything, but GOOD for body, mind and soul?

Tony Laidig: True Elaine…but it still makes me act irrationally at times…especially when I NEED it. lol

Heidi Walter: Interesting, chocolate has never made me act irrationally. Must be my genetics. LOL.

Cathy Colonna Rogers: KIDS – Especially your own. They have a way of getting you so frustrated in an argument you can’t even put together a coherent sentence!

Tony Laidig: BTW…I am not suggesting that these triggers will always lead to irrational behavior or will do so in all people. I also realize that “irrational” is subjective. I just find it fascinating that there are influences that can control us with…out explanation. That said, here are some more possible triggers I thought of: Self-preservation, belief in a cause, a need to belong or fit in, the supernatural, organized groups or religions, chemical imbalances or food allergies, group devotion (like sports fans…grin). Any other thoughts?See More

Taylore Vance: This is Scary and we need to realize that this is behind unrest…and social problems including substance abuse — why try if you are hopeless? (Good question) http://ymlp.com/zBy5lG

Heidi Walter: Oh, Tony, you’ll have to get Maxine Jones’ book on agreements when it comes out later this fall. I am editing it now. It’s all about the conscious and unconscious agreements we make, like aging (which doesn’t have to happen) and needing food to survive (That was a human consciousness agreement that built up over the centuries). Fascinating and empowering stuff. We don’t know the title yet, but I’ll be writing about it once it’s ready.

Audrey Spiegel: All great comments and insight….I’d like to add insecurity. Oh, and being hungry and tired.

Susan L. Strahosky: My predominate psychic sense is feeling. I’ve realized it can make me feel crazy when I feel things. I’m aware of things, but there is not physical or outward validation. Like there’s an elephant in the room and everyone else is in denial.

Debby Hall: Love…any and all kinds, romantic, parental, friendships. Logic and reason can go out the window when it comes to love and that’s not necessarily a bad thing:)

Business Success Reboot, Part Two

Lately, I’ve been exploring the question of…

“If I had to do it all over…to start over from scratch…WHAT would I do different?”

What I want to share with you today is the ONE skill I learned that made a HUGE difference in my income. And I want to share this because, when I first started out, I was told (just like I’m telling you) that I needed to understand this and I thought I had it all figured out…that I knew what I was doing.

Boy was I wrong!

My first product took me 11 months to create…and I wouldn’t recommend ANYONE take that long to create products. As a matter of fact, now I create several new products every single week…but that’s another story. Anyway, once I had my product created and the website designed I was ready to make some money. After all, I deserved some compensation for all the hard work I had put into creating it (the product was the Public Domain Code Book).

When I designed the site, I felt comfortable with the graphics because that’s what I did for a living at the time. But there was ONE element that I held some real concern about…writing the copy for the sales letter. I looked at what a couple other websites had used and thought I’d try to model them. I was
TOLD that I needed to understand the basics of good copywriting but I ignored those who told me that.

So I wrote what I thought was some pretty clever copy in the vane of Indiana Jones meets the Public Domain and I was SO proud. I absolutely LOVED how the copy and the sales letter turned out. Now for the REAL test…sending traffic to the site to make some serious cash! I bought some traffic through Adwords (another nightmare I’ll save for a future installment) and suddenly, I realized I was facing worst-case scenario…I spent a LOT of money on Adwords and made ZERO sales. I couldn’t tell my wife, she would have killed me if she knew how much money I spent with Google with nothing to show.

When I began to consider what could have been wrong, the message about the importance of copy came back to haunt me. I had to face the fact that my sales copy sucked. I went on a frenzied quest to learn the basics of copywriting to see if I could even salvage all the time and effort I had put into this first project. It paid off. I re-wrote the sales page based on what I had learned and sales began to happen…a few here and there, and then more and more. Since then, that first product has sold over $50,000 and is still selling today!

What made the difference?

It wasn’t the product and it wasn’t the traffic…it was the SALES COPY! That’s what made the difference. It was an expensive lesson to learn and one that I want to help you avoid. That’s why I created, “Copywriting Basics That Work!” You’ll discover how to avoid ALL the mistakes that kept my first product from selling, as well as the secrets to creating sales letters, video sales letters and e-mail promotions convert like crazy.

Do yourself a favor (and for the benefit of your current and future sales), take a few moments to watch the video I created and discover the KEY to finding true success online.

Committed to your ongoing success!
