13 May Super Simple Software Solutions for Product Creation
If you didn’t know it already, you’ll know it soon enough that I love product creation! It’s the one single area of internet business that gets me up in the morning and gets me going. I love it.
However, most people don’t!
Why? I guess there are a number of reasons but it comes down to one… it – is – too – hard. Yep. That’s it.
However, my fellow warrior Andy Brocklehurst from the UK has come out with a terrific piece of software to make it a whole lot easier than it’s ever been to publish your own products. He calls it iCurator Pro, and it simply takes your ‘product’ (your PDF, videos etc) and packages them into one very simple application for download.
My description however doesn’t do it justice – there are so many applications for this that it’s something you’ve just got to try to see its worth.
iCurator Pro can help you deliver your own ‘developed product’. It will also help you package other people’s product for a fee (this is what I call easy money). It’s fantastic for delivery of free info-courses and can also be used to build your opt-in list.
(Ever heard of the Swiss Army Knife?)
Take a look at this video which shows a snippet of just how cool this can look (this video come from my fellow Aussie Oda at internetmarketingtoolshed.com).
When asked about how long it took for him to package the product he shows on the video, Oda explained…
I used Gimp to resize the images from the minisite to fit the icurator box. (3 minutes) 640 x 480
Then I uploaded the videos to you tube and made them “view only if you have the link” and loaded them into the software. (upload took 30 Minutes, Button organising took about 10 minutes once i had the video ID Numbers.)
Then I uploaded the pdf to my server and edited that button. (2 minutes)
Last I made a resources file from a template I have so I was using all 12 Buttons. I uploaded that to my server and linked it in to the last button. (10 Minutes or so)
Spent 20 minutes fine tuning and testing
Hit the build Button and done.
The important thing to remember is you will NOT break the software, Think outside the square and try a few things. If it looks crap then start again.
I was being a smart arse putting that video up. I was just so happy with the finished result I had to show someone!
Jump on board is my advice and have a go with the software, once you make your first one you’ll see how easy it is to use and how many ideas you get on how you can benefit from this.
I have been saying that having forms on your squeeze pages is NOT the best way to build your list for ages!
This program just proves the point again, why have a form on your squeeze page when you can move it inside the software and make it as natural to fill out as renewing your anti-virus subscription.
And you know something… even if you don’t know how to do all these things, you can easily outsource!
As you can see from Oda’s response, he was totally wrapped with how easy iCurator Pro is to use… and I agree.
Therefore, if you have any desire to produce your own products, then I strongly suggest that you get yourself a copy of iCurator Pro.
It’s a definite winner in my book!
