Are you ready to leave behind the grind of earning revenue only when you are delivering services? Whether you're an independent expert attracted by the idea of earning money while you're sailing in a tropical bay or you work for a company eager to profit from deeper offerings to your niche, this step-by-step coaching program propels you toward that goal.
There's no need to wait until you research all the strategies and how-to's, and no need to blunder around making avoidable - and expensive - mistakes. With the Launch Your Information Empire Program, you figure out your best starting options for creating information products, understanding the quickest and most profitable plans of action as well as the pitfalls to avoid. Months from now, you will have started creating new streams of income.
The Dream and the Reality
In the 1990s, my husband and I would sit in our living room opening bins full of envelopes, then stacking checks and money orders in one pile and dollar bills in another heap so high they'd begin to topple over. These days it's not as much work to count the money, but it's just as much fun to tell each other how many orders came in while we were sleeping, enjoying the outdoors or traveling for weeks and months at a time.
I'm marketing expert Marcia Yudkin, and over the years, I've kept my eye on lots of people and companies building a system to bring in millions of this kind of income and watched others struggling to make it work. Still others obliviously toil day after day to earn money from their talents without any inkling of a more satisfying, more flexible way.
If you dream of creating passive income for yourself or your company, the Launch Your Information Empire Program dramatically cuts your mistakes, multiplies your payoff and most importantly, gets you up and running wisely in the direction of big profits.
Who is Marcia Yudkin?
I created my first product at age 9, when I wrote and published a little newspaper for my relatives that my mother mimeo'd at the school where she worked (remember the delicious smell of that purple ink?). Since then, my entrepreneurial successes have included producing video and audio programs, including a tape selected by Writer's Digest Book Club and Sounds True catalog; creating and selling reports, teleclasses, weekend seminars, books, online training courses, Kindle ebooks and more; and advising clients worldwide on information products.
Learn Winning Strategies and the Most Efficient Tactics
Are you making the most of your intellectual property, information assets and knowledge? Probably not. Are you turning ideas into products as quickly, efficiently and profitably as you could be? Probably not. Are you enabling people who are ravenous to learn to do so as deeply as they want to? Probably not.
Enroll in this multifaceted program and you will not have to learn how to create your information empire by failing! Here's just a small portion of the hard-won wisdom that helps you get on track and stay on track:
- Seven proven business models for selling products, along with real-world examples and the advantages and disadvantages of each, so you can choose the model that's right for you... or mix and match for a feasible combination
- Best starting points for generating an empire from scratch or building on what you've already accomplished
- The best quick-start product formats (teleclasses? printed anthologies? tips? live seminars? - you'll find out which I most recommend!) Also, why an abandoned or outdated project may be ripe for resurrection
"I started this program knowing that I ought to be selling things but without any plan for how to do it. Learning how to create a system that moves people from visiting my web site to purchasing high-end products was definitely worth what I paid. I loved listening to the recordings with my feet up and pencil in my lap. The handouts were complete, professional and generous -- with resources, research, a helpful marketing calendar and case studies. Everything I need to develop and sell information products was included. In fact, I've already completed my first tips booklet that I'm going to use as a lead-in to higher-end products. Thanks, Marcia!" - Lynn Gaertner-Johnston, Syntax Training, Seattle, WA

"When I started Marcia's class, I was totally burnt out, working as many hours in real estate marketing as I humanly could. Now I understand how to exponentially explode my income by working less. I know how to get started, how to attract traffic, how to earn money right from the start and how to develop my line of products to make even more money. There was so much fabulous content packed into each session, and best of all, Marcia saved me a lot of wasted time and money by showing me which ideas would have never brought in much money and which are worth developing." - Kathy Goughenour, The Goughenour Group, Black, MO

You Get Roadmaps to Follow, Encouragement, Feedback, Answers, Camaraderie - and Redirection Where Needed
If you've ever tried to learn to speak a language, play a musical instrument or repair cars on your own, you know there's no substitute for pointers from a knowledgeable, supportive teacher. Creating and selling information products is much the same. An experienced guide saves you from harmful blunders and dead ends, cuts your learning time and confirms it when you're proceeding correctly.
While you have the option to work through the course completely on your own, I strongly recommend the "with coaching" arrangement, so you avoid pitfalls, make the most of your unique knowledge and circumstances and benefit from my strategic advice for your objectives.
"Most Internet marketing courses that I'd previously taken left me thinking I couldn't actually achieve their promised level of success. This program was different. Because of all the business models Marcia described, I felt confident I could create a system that would work for me. The program is perfect for someone who's not looking for a cookie cutter system (which probably isn't going to work anyway), but who wants to create solid Internet business success their way. I was able to determine the core product for my back-end strategy, I now know exactly which steps will make the business work financially, and I've already begun laying the groundwork." - Andrea Conway, SuccessfulSelfEmployment.com
You begin with eight well-organized lessons so you tackle first things first and details later. Then one-on-one coaching takes you to the finish line of implementing at least the initial phase of your marketing funnel. You get instant access to the course materials as soon as you finish signing up.
Here's how the program launches you as an Information Emperor:
- Listen lesson by lesson to the audios. Each recorded lesson lasts 40-80 minutes, ending with a specific homework assignment in which you apply the ideas and watch your information empire take shape. A handout for each lesson contains a detailed outline of the content along with reference links and other resources. What works best is listening while looking at the handout and taking notes on it.
Make the concepts yours
in practical homework
assignments. Each lesson ends with
an action step that get you focused and
moving forward on creating your information
products and marketing them to a target
audience. In the "with coaching"
version of the program, you receive prompt
and thorough feedback from me on each
homework item, step by step.
- Refer to the supplementary materials for resources and further ideas. The bonus tools and manuals you receive offer additional guidance in developing creative product ideas, brainstorming, writing and promoting:
- Information Marketing: Your First PDF Report (PDF) - Follow the step-by-step process in this manual to get your first PDF report intelligently completed and ready for purchase on your site
- Information Marketing: Your First Audio Product (PDF) - If you'd rather sell your information in audio format, learn how to do that without advanced equipment or technical know-how
- Information Marketing: Your First Kindle Ebook (PDF) - Although not necessarily a big moneymaker, discover how to post ebooks on Amazon and similar worldwide marketplaces to attract new customers
- Advanced Guide to Information Marketing (PDF) - Discover more than 120 ways to serve your niche with clever, ever-multiplying products and services
- Bullets With Bite (PDF) - Understand how to write juicy bullet points that help persuade strangers to press the "buy" button
- EXCLUSIVE, AVAILABLE NOWHERE ELSE: One-Year Marketing Plan (PDF) - A month-by-month framework of to-do's to make the launch of your information empire a roaring success
"Your information marketing course has been tremendously helpful, saving me months of research and years of experience. It is worth more than the price I paid for it." - Lei Wang, Parramatta, NSW, Australia
- Eight Client Consultations (Audios) - Listen to me talk eight different information product creators through their challenges, questions and confusions about product conceptualization, opt-in pieces, pricing, product descriptions and marketing strategy
- Three one-on-one coaching sessions to ensure you make your empire a reality (for "with coaching" enrollees only). Wherever in the process you need more intensive direction or suggestions, you can set up three private telephone coaching sessions with me for brainstorming, answers, to-do's and a reality check.
- A comprehensive written critique of your product, marketing plan or sales copy (for "with coaching" enrollees only). After you've completed the eight homework assignments, you get assistance in kicking all the kinks out of your execution via comprehensive feedback and detailed suggestions on the wording, emphasis, design, strategy and more of your product, plan or sales page, depending on what you feel you need help with most.
- Answers to remaining questions (for "with coaching" enrollees only). Once you've used up your telephone coaching and received your critique, you can continue emailing me questions about your information empire, up to one full year from when you signed up. This helps you to stay on track and deal with the unexpected. I want you to be a raging success!
"This course enlarged my thinking about product development beyond ebooks and free reports to a whole universe of avenues down which I could easily imagine taking my business. A big 'aha' was that my file cabinets are full, and all I need to do is massage my content into packages and bundles. It's easier than I thought! And in the two months since finishing the course, just one idea - that I'm going to get sick of my message long before my customers will - has already put a lot of extra money into my pocket, almost double what I paid for the program." - Claire O'Connor, Enchanted Home, Milford, NJ
All together, the structured step-by-step lessons, diamond-sharp coaching (if you're in the "with coaching" program) and "keeper" resources ensure that you move as quickly as possible out of the realm of dreams into real-world revenue, loads of it!

"Launch Your Information Empire was well-organized, the topics well sequenced, and the balanced emphasis on both the creative side and the practical business aspect of generating products exactly what I signed up for. It opened my eyes to some product development ideas, showed me how to use an integrated marketing approach and revived my interest in distributing products that use the written word. I've got the audios in my car now and am looking forward to listening to the course again. I hesitated to pay that much, but I got value for every dollar spent!" - Nancy Edmonds Hanson, Hanson Photo. Video. Communications, Fargo, ND
