How To Find Golden Ideas To Create Infoproducts On Discussion Forums

Copyright 2003 - Jeff Smith

Let me start off with a wild guess!

You either think discussion boards are a bleeping waste of time - because so many of them are full of junk, or think of discussion boards simply as a method of getting your questions answered.

What you probably HAVE NOT done is mine them for golden nuggets that you can quickly and easily use to create infoproducts that will sell like crazy.

Software, eBooks, special reports, services, it doesn't matter - you can create infoproducts of any kind. The #1 difference between creating hot selling infoproducts is finding high-demand infoproduct topics.

Here's how.

First, let's start with how you find super profitable product ideas, then I'll give you some forums I bet you've never heard of before.

So how do you single out discussion board content that you can use to create infoproducts?

1. Learn to scan your favorites daily

Pick at least 6 of the best quality, highest traffic discussion boards in your area of interest. We'll give you some options below. Make it part of your daily MO (Mode of Operation) to capture potentially hot ideas for creating infoproducts using the techniques below.

2. Look for "Idea Triggers"

These include questions "How Do I", "Where can I find...", "Does anyone know where...", "Wanted..."

Idea Triggers may also be statements of frustration or disapproval like "I wish there was a way to...", "It would be so much easier if...", "I can't believe I had to..."

It's quite rare for any single question or statement to have only been made once on popular forums - chances are you will often stumble on similar questions or desires.

3. Pattern Watch

Think of yourself as a detective Joe Friday. You want to learn the sometimes hidden desires and motivations of your buyers.

Consistent patterns of questions, expressions, ideas, frustrations or rants will serve as great input into your goal of creating infoproducts.

A common detective technique is to look for patterns of behavior. Find a few questions and search forum archives over a 3-6 month period to see how many others have asked similar questions. It's incredible when you see how similar we all are with our wants.

4. Look for Hot Spots on Discussion Forums

Another technique is to search for the posts with the most responses - many forums have this as an archived search, if not, you can easily scan to see the threads with the most responses and views.

Again, this will help you quickly focus in on pockets of high emotional demand - exactly what you want to create your infoproduct.

5. Go fishing - post inquiry questions

You may have posted specific questions on boards before to answer a very urgent or focused question you may have.

But - how about posting questions about a certain topic to see if you can generate idea triggers.

You'll see the big names in any industry doing this once in a while. They typically keep a low profile, then come out of the woodwork to ask the group a question about a certain topic.

Guess what - they are collecting information to create their own infoproducts.

They are fishing, looking for a school of fish within their market - then when they find something, they'll set the hook with the perfect bait to capture that group's attention, not to mention their wallets.

6. Start your own discussion forum

While won't happen overnight, there have been many examples of forums ramping up on high demand subjects in as little as 30-days.

Running your own forum lets you test markets, build your online brand, provide an endless source of product ideas and a test bed for your new concepts and products.

It's inevitable, as forum owners strive to keep their forums valuable and attractive to the big, successful names in their industry - they move to a paid membership model. Here's 2 that I've found incredibly valuable:

The internet is LOADED with high quality discussion forums on a variety of topics. You should be using this to discover and test your product ideas.

If you want to create infoproducts that sell like wildfire, then make it part of your daily routine, before you know it, it will become a habit and you will be all the richer for it.
