Now, besides creating these yourself, one of the quickest and cheapest way to acquire all the content and products you need is from the public domain.
Whatever your requirements, you can find almost anything in the public domain. Examples include texts, audio, images, stock video, music and software…which you can flexibly use in whichever ways you want!
While a considerable portion of this material is “fair use”, not all the works entered in to the public domain database are clear of copyright limitations.
A true public domain work is information open to the public for use, including copying, distributing and modification at no cost. Currently works published 75 years ago are considered to be public domain, while those published from 1924-1963 may be public domain – IF the copyright was not renewed.
Assuming you now have all the public domain content you want, the million dollar question is:
“How do I truly monetize them to create long-term profit streams?”
The answer is in these 7 simple methods:Method #1: Launch An Info Empire
How many mini sites within a week are you able to set up to advertise info-products that’s previously been created for you? It’s a no-brainer.
Public domain provides the perfect opportunity for creating an empire of super profitable mini sites that can each make money on autopilot for you. It’s really a numbers game…
If one mini site generates a conservative $300 per month, ten of these would mean a nice income of $3,000 every month! What if you just concentrate on getting the formula down to a science and duplicate these mini sales machines every day? Think about it.Method #2: Turn Out Comprehensive Niche Sites
Split up public domain material and use them as pages of targeted niche content material for your website. It’s a simple idea but hardly anyone exploit it.
All you do is select relevant public domain books and break them down into instant content. With a little SEO skills, planning and targeted keyword-based public domain content, you can spit out new websites that rank highly in the search engines overnight.
This is a better solution and enhancement to automated site creation tools, which being essentially carbon copies of each other, have high risks of being banned.
While it takes work, this is one quick way to develop new niche sites on demand. You can then profit from them using Google Adsense, affiliate programs and advertising revenues. This method can also be applied to blogs.
Method #3: Obtain Traffic With Viral Lead Generators
A proven technique to generate cost-free and highly-targeted traffic is to set-up lead generating mini ebooks and make them viral.
Basically public domain material can be fully or partially used as content for your mini ebooks, which you simply create and give away to bring back traffic to your site. Adding a viral marketing effect to your mini ebooks will explode your traffic for life – without any cost to you.
Not many people are using public domain in this way and it’ll be highly profitable for you to do so.
Method #4: Follow-up For Optimal Profits
It’s a proven fact that following up with your leads using an auto responder sequence or ecourse is bound to boost your profits. This is where you can use content from the public domain to great effect.
If you can cut and paste, you can create a quality ecourse with public domain works. It’s as easy as it gets.
Method #5: Obtain Instant Attention And Credibility
This one is great – split the public domain book’s content material in to countless content articles with YOUR name and resource box built in.
Then simply submit these ‘instant’ articles and sit back. Your personal branding and name recognition will skyrocket beyond belief! You’ll also receive credibility and expert status with your articles, provided they’re good.
Method #6: Create Various Products At Lightning Speed
Have you thought about repackaging and creating different products from public domain material? Just changing the format can vastly increase the perceived value and worth of the product.
You can take a public domain book and split it up into modules, create audio recordings or market it as a paid subscription newsletter for tons more profits than just selling it as a single ebook.
Another idea is to combine a few books with a common topic as a themed package. You can then sell resale rights to it and generate instant backend cash. Or create a high-ticket item by combining manuals, audio and dvds together.
The possibilities are huge!
Method #7: Make Use Of Them As Exclusive Bonuses
Public domain materials make excellent bonuses for your principal product or service if you are interested in a higher market price. Other uses of bonuses include:
As extra incentives for your affiliate promotions; as incentives for publishing articles; or even for a simple purpose like clicking to a site. You get the idea 🙂
