When it comes to doing business online, publishing through product creation can be an extremely lucrative venture. There is much more involved in the process though than simply writing an ebook and waiting for it to really take off. Before you decide that product creation is the online publishing method for you, it is a good idea to learn what it takes to create a successful product. Keep in mind that is only a small part of the process. An even larger part relies on the right timing, the right market conditions, being the right person, and no small degree of luck on your side. That being said. Keep these things in mind to get off to a better start for your product creation efforts.

1) Find a hungry audience. It doesn't matter how great your product is if there is no one that is really going to say I have to have, want, or need this product. It's the law of supply and demand. Unless there is going to be a hungry, and by this we mean no food for a week hungry, market for the product you want to create, there is really no point in going to the effort of creating it.

2) Write it down. Whenever you have an idea write it down on paper. Don't put it on the computer. Write it on actual paper that you can pick up, carry around with you, scribble on, and study. Make notes, changes, and adjustments as you mull it over. Ask if you can make it better and decide if you want to offer it as is for now and an upgrade later. Plan it out and see how it looks on paper.

3) Create the product. The product creation phase is often the most difficult but it is nearly impossible to move on to the creation of advertising without knowing what the finished product is going to include. Write the ebook. Let it rest for a few days and then read the ebook. Make sure that it has all the points you want to include and offers plenty of information and education in the process. In other words, make sure it's worth the money you want to charge for the ebook.

4) Build up hype. This is where other online publishing efforts like article marketing, blog posts, and Squidoo lenses will come in handy. Put out the word to your mailing lists and other Internet marketers you work with as well as through social networking that something big is coming.

5) Create a killer sales page. This is the icing on the cake for many. If you do not feel your copy writing skills are up to the task outsource this critical task. If your book is in the right niche, you may want to barter an advanced copy of your ebook for copy writing services. It is that important.

6) Release.

There are many steps involved in online publishing for ebooks and product creation. Make sure you are ready to go the distance before you begin.
