Using Public Domain information is an easy way to create products and then sell them in the form of ebooks, reports, or create content for your website. If you haven’t noticed, there are tons of ebooks for sale on eBay.
Some of these ebooks are just thrown out there at a penny. I believe a lot of these sellers are just looking to increase their feedback rating. But eBay states that you must make some money from your ebook, so you’ll often see shipping at .99 cents or something like that.
And then you’ll see other people who are selling ebooks that are actually getting good dollar value for their product. You can see that they spend more time creating a nice listing.
So how do you get in on this action? And you’re probably thinking, should I create my own information product, is it worth it? I’m here to say, yes go for it! It’s a great way to work hard, create the product and then profit.
So how do you get all this content? The Public Domain. Anything published prior to 1923 can be used. We’re talking about audio, music sheets, books, manuals, and so much more. There is tons and tons of information in there just waiting to be used.
You get to publish what you want (anything prior to 1923) and use it how you like, then you become the owner of this product. So you have the copyright, which gives you the right to sell it on eBay.
You can also use the content to create a website, or add to your current website. Build your website content quickly with articles and books from the public domain.
