Information marketing comes in many shapes and sizes. From home study courses to online membership sites. It's a mature industry but it's still growing like crazy because technology is making it easier and easier to self publish, build sites, and find niche markets to buy your information products.
Today's episode features a great new technology that's easy to use, looks stunning and very affordable. The software is called Fedora check it out here.
Fedora allows you to create your own **stunning online school** with no tech skills necessary and none of the hassles of dealing with merchant accounts and payments.
Here's what it has to do with Amazon and Clickbank having a love child
One of the numerous benefits of Amazon is that it's a marketplace that's easy to navigate, with a proven conversion process that gives users a wonderful experience. No matter what you are buying, the checkout process is the same. Consumers love that.
Clickbank.com is platform where experts can create and sell information products and even recruit and army of affiliates without worrying about setting up their own ecommerce platform or shopping cart. You do however have to set up your own sales process, funnels, membership sites, etc… and no two sites are the same.
(By the way, Clickbank should be paying close attention to this episode.)
Years ago a new site popped up called Lynda.com as an online school to learn basically anything. They have thousands of online courses for $25 a month and you can create your own content and sell it on Lynda. They do approximately $100 million in revenue and there's no signs of slowing.
Then a few years back Udemy.com sprang up using the same general business model and have seen tremendous success as well.
They each created a place to go for online education that put the USER EXPERIENCE first in mind.
But, as an information marketer, you lose a lot of control, flexibility and revenue generating potential if you only sell through these sites.
Enter Ankur Nagpal and Fedora
Fedora is a very affordable software as a service that allows you to create stunning online schools with no tech headaches at all. They handle payments, affiliates, and everything else, but they give you control over your own school, instructors and brand.
