Review: Create Inspired Info Products by Tom Volkar
Have you been thinking of creating an info product, but get stuck or overwhelmed at the process? You might be interested in the new product, Create Inspired Info Products, by Tom Volkar of Delightful Work.
Imagine that, a product to help you create a product!
I recently used the product myself. At first I didn’t think I needed someone tell me how to create a product. I’ve created products successfully in the past. But with so many ideas floating around in my mind, I found Tom’s process provided both the time structure and accountability I needed to complete one product at a time.
What is it?
Create Inspired Info Products provides a structure that takes your from conception to completion in as little as 5 days. The kit includes a .pdf download with questions, exercises and series of audios to help you through the product completion process. Your commitment requires at least 2 to 2.5 hours per day, longer if you have the time. Tom has a hard rule: you must stop working by midnight. Tom also includes the start of a marketing plan. By no means is it a comprehensive plan, nor is it supposed to be. Tom’s goal is to help you complete the product itself. Marketing it is up to you.
What I Liked
- The brainstorming questions and the decision-making process during days 1 and 2.
- The structure. I personally enjoy a little bit of structure.
- Planned breaks. Each day Tom incorporates some sort of break during your 2 hour time frame. Do not skip them! Breaks are critical to your creativity.
- Tom’s warning: “don’t pick a big idea you can’t complete in 5 days”.
- The start of a marketing plan. Just because your product is complete doesn’t mean you are finished. You want someone to buy it, right?
I would have liked a little more guidance to help me sift through the “big ideas” in order to create a smaller one.
I personally didn’t find the audio files all that useful, but then I’m more of a visual person. For those who need additional guidance and inspiration, though, the audios are an added motivator.
The five-day process provided a sense of completion in a short amount of time. Although I created a service that I’m not sure I’m going to launch, that has nothing to do with the effectiveness of this product. If I choose to launch the service, it’s ready to go because of this process. And I have the beginning of a marketing plan to help my success.
I plan to use the product again for a few additional ideas floating around in my brain. I really appreciated the structure on a day-to-day basis.
If you have a lot of ideas, feel overwhelmed by them and work more effectively with structure, I recommend Tom’s product. It will help you discover which one product to start with and take action towards completion. That is something you can feel good about!
