A Little Secret About Public Domain Treasures
I bet this little secret is going to get YOU excited... just like it did me. I just discovered public domain treasures and it's a perfect business opportunity for many new internet entrepreneurs.
Did you know there's a little known loophole in US law that allows anyone to distribute, resell or give away expired copyrighted content? Officially, its called public domain, and savvy marketers "borrow" it to publish instant products.
Public domain refers to anything that is NOT protected under US copyright law. This includes all works published before 1923 and under certain conditions, works published up to 1978. A "work" can be anything, a book, movies, plays, songs, photographs, instruction manuals, posters, courses, reports, etc. You could take these works, repackage them and sell them for a profit. By tapping into public domain content, all the nitty gritty work has been done for you.
There are almost an endless number of ways that you can make money with public domain content. Let me suggest 10 different models you can use to activate and tap the public domain treasures.
Model 1: Resell It.
You can re-publish public domain content exactly as it is. Whether it's a book, a movie or even music, you can take this content and quickly turn it into a product. Just copy it as it is and start selling it.
Model 2: Website Content
You can take the text of the public domain work which relates to a product you are selling or an affiliate program that you are promoting. You then create web pages and include links back to your product page.
Model 3: Repackage
You can repackage a public domain work into a new product. You can use the ideas and some of the content of public domain works to create new and better products.
Eg. Walt Disney characters Snow White, the Little Mermaid were all stories from the public domain.
Model 4: Multimedia
You can change the books in print into a CD or even a video set. Add to the perceived value of the product by offering ways to consume the information. What was once simply a "book" can now be a complete home study course or training program.
Eg. The famous "Think & Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill has been made into an audio CD which is a more convenient format.
Model 5: Reprint Rights
You could sell your version of the information product along with marketing materials. People love reprint rights and it's a quick and easy way to make tons of money immediately. You can sell reprint rights only to a derivative product you have created from the original public domain material.
Model 6: Upsell
You can use public domain works and use then as an "upsell" to a regular version of your best selling product. You simply present your buyer with an additional opportunity to "upgrade" their order or add something to their order.
Model 7: Bonuses
Simply use the work as a bonus to your main offering. People love bonuses and will buy a product just for the bonus, if its unique and not something they've seen all over the net already.
Model 8: Viral E-books
You simply take parts of the book and turn it into a viral e-book by allowing others to pass along or even sell this e-book as their own. Once you trigger the "virus" its nearly impossible to make it stop because people keep passing it on and than these people keep passing it on etc, etc.
Eg. Rebecca fine from Seattle, WA used this exact technique to accidentally launch her six figure business with an interesting book, written in 1910 "The Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace D.Wattles.You can "super-size" this strategy by creating a viral e-book with the material and then including affiliate links that pay you commissions anytime someone buys from your recommended resources.
Model 9: Google AdSense
You can use the material to create an information-rich website and then place a tiny piece of code from Google to run their AdSense program on your site. You'll essentially partner-up with Google and get paid a percentage for everyone that simply clicks on the ads Google places on your site.
Model 10: Articles/ Mini Courses
You could use little contents from public domain works and create a mini-course that people would subscribe from your site. You just load a series of 4 to 10 articles into your auto-responders and it delivers it on a total auto-pilot.
You can also use the material into 500-800 word articles to distribute for free publicity and traffic to your sites. Editors of e-zines and owners of web sites are always looking for hot fresh content and in exchange they'll send you over targeted traffic.
Eg. Matt Furey discovered a little unknown book on "Catch Wrestling" and turned it into a complete manual and video e-course of 12 lessons for his market of fitness and wrestling buffs. He had earned over $1million dollars in sales from this one book.
Among the topics available in the public domain treasures are:
Health & Fitness
Fun & Games
Sports & Recreation
Hobbies & Crafts
Education & Self Improvement
Food & Cooking
Animal & Pets
Home Garden & much much more.
Public domain works provides a huge opportunity to newbies in the internet world to tap these vast treasures. Simply put, you can use these works to instantly create e-books, manuals, articles, reports or any other type of information products in a snap. GOOD LUCK!
