I just launched a new product that will make ZERO splash in the internet marketing world.
But that doesn’t bother me because it’s not aimed at those of us in IM. :)
Most of the time I say my first product was Sonic Memo, but that’s not technically true. My first product was a set of programming macros called PW Macros. That was a give-away product, but it led to a product that I actually got money for, ProTools — another set of programmer utilities that was published by Ariel Publishing.
With this new product I’m back to the development market with a product that was started just 12 days ago. Started from scratch. It came together really quickly, mainly because I was able to use some chunks of code from Article Architect and other products I’ve created in the past.
Plus, I’m just an awesome product creator. ;)
Okay, stop throwing tomatoes, here’s the point that applies whether your market is IM, gardening, forex, or anything else — the more products you create the better and faster you get at them. And the more resources you have to pull from to make your new product come together quickly.
But you can never get to that “it came together like magic!” point if you never put a product together to start with. You have to do something – more than once – to get really good at it.
Putting together a product is a skill that can be learned and a skill that can pay you back over and over again in the future.
If you haven’t created your first product yet, isn’t it about time you got started?
Get started, and then get better. And faster. And more profitable.
