So You Want to Be An Infopreneur? Do You know what an
infopreneur is? An infopreneur is someone who is in
business to gather or disseminate electronic information.
To put it in simple words, he is someone who sells
information online (mainly through the Internet).
Infopreneurs explore the uncharted "blue oceans" of
internet business to define their niche markets.

In the wider sense, an infopreneur is an entrepreneur who
main media is the World Wide Web and main source of profits
are information products or services. Presently, more than
1 billion people around the globe are using the Internet.
Online retailing has become a booming business. On 2005,
the total online sales have reached US$89 billion. The
rapid growth of Internet and the vast business
opportunities that comes with it, has made many successful
infopreneurs. These infopreneurs are able to tap on the
Internet to reach out to the mass markets.

So How Can You Become An Infopreneur?

There are basically 3 ways to start you online business to
be an Infopreneur.
1.Sell Your Own Products
2.Sell Other People Products
3.Provide An Online Service

1.Sell Your Own Products

Everyone is an expert or good at something. That expertise
can generate tremendous income opportunities from
information products.

To be a successful infopreneur, you need to think of things
that you know alot that others do not know and are dying
for them. This will be your niche market that is rabid
market for you information products. The information
products can be on your interest/hobbies, money, investing,
debts, or even internet marketing to name a few. You can
also search the web for buzz or things that recently
generate a huge following. To create your own information
products required a lot of work. If you do not have the
time or little knowledge of product creation you can
outsource your creation process to others and concentrate
on the selling or marketing your information products.

2.Sell Other People's Products

Selling other people's products means that you have to be
an affiliate to the merchants/vendors or be a direct
marketer of the information products. To be an affiliate
means that you have to join the merchants' program and
direct your prospects to their product to make the sales.
To be a direct marketer, you need to purchase information
products with resale or master resale rights and sell them
on your own website. Sometimes it is easier to sell a
proven product then to create your own. These products
would usually receive some publicity, proven that they
really work and results in some sales.

3.Provide An Online Service

In this Information Age, the Internet is about saving time
as well as saving money. Online Services provide people the
ease of accessing certain information and flexibility to do
things faster or might not be possible in real life. Such
services include online chat/messenger services, search
engines, online banking services, online stock trading
services, membership site, etc. You no need to crack your
head to think of some online services. A better way is to
do a search in the search engines to sell what people are
looking for and try to provide a service to compliment it.

Internet is an innovation that has enabled us to do a lot
of things which are not possible previously. Our lifestyle
and habits have undergo tremendous changes since its
invention. On average, 3 out of 4 American adults surf the
web regularly. With number of Internet users reaching more
than 1 billion users and increasing rapidly every year,
there are a lot of untapped "blue oceans" in Internet for

the Information Age to be an Infoprenuer.
