If you want to make money online, then you need to create your own product. While you can sell other people’s products through affiliate marketing or other means, having your own products to offer to your customers can be more rewarding. However, product creation can be challenging. There are a lot of factors to consider. 

In this article, you will discover five essential secrets to creating a product that sells fast. After all, what good is producing it if nobody buys it?

Choose a niche, better yet, a segment of it.

It is easy to think that having a product for everyone is rewarding because you will have more prospects. Unfortunately, it is not the case. If you are starting your business, it is not your best approach. The reality is choosing a specific niche to offer your products is the practical approach. The first step in creating a fast-selling product is determining your target niche. 

Once you have a niche, you can focus on its specific segment as your target market. If you want to offer products to pet owners, you can narrow your target market down by choosing the type of pet, then the breed of the pet, the type of owners, etc. The secret is to narrow it down so that you can determine your ideal customers and personify them.

Focusing on a smaller niche can generate more sales. You have less competition. At the same time, it can also increase your net profits by decreasing your promotion or advertising costs. 

Make sure your price is right.

People tend to associate price with quality: product quality and demand drive price. If the price is too low, people may think your product has poor quality. However, pricing your product too high can also make it out of reach of your target audience. You need to find the goldilocks zone.

Picking the right price requires good research. Check the prices of your competitors as well as the average price in the market. Compare your product to your competitors’ to see if it is worth more or less. Ensure that you provide enough value or more for the price so your customers won’t feel ripped off.

Give your product professional branding.

Despite what you might think, people do judge a book by its cover. It’s convenient because it’s the first thing people notice, and they only have a few seconds to spare. Your product cover and marketing materials should never be cheap-looking. They should evoke high quality. A professional cover and marketing materials should help set customers’ expectations of your products.

You can hire professional designers if you are not skilled at graphics design. Outsourcing is available in places like Fiverr and Upwork. Don’t hesitate to hire them. Consider it as an investment and not just cost.

Prove that your product works.

These days people are skeptical. If your selling your product online, then the skepticism is higher. People don’t know you, and they have not met you. They won’t just take your word. Share some studies about your product. Provide testimonials and other forms of proof.

Even if you prove that your product works, people can still be skeptical. To deal with that, offer them a money-back guarantee, and the longer it is, the better. Give your customer enough time to use the product to prove its worth. If it’s too short, they will panic and ask for a refund. 30 to 90 days are standard, depending on the type of product.

Offer free samples to your target market.

As already stated, people are skeptical. Another way to deal with that is to give them free samples of the product you are offering. If it is a membership site, you can provide a free month trial or a one-dollar trial. Your customer can use the product for free or at a low cost for some time, and they will be billed automatically after. Ensure that you are clear and specific as to when they will be billed to avoid customer complaints. If you offer info products, you can give them a preview or a chapter of the product, and then they can pay if they want to access the rest. It works for Amazon. There is no reason it won’t work for you.

There you have it—the five essential secrets for creating products that sell. Use them the next time you produce your new product. Let us know your comments. Please share this article with someone who might benefit from it.
