21 Reasons Why You Should Be Creating Your Own Products in 2012 and Beyond

by Mavis Nong on December 28, 2011

In my previous post, I shared the #1 skill that will make ALL the difference in your business:

Now, why should you be creating and selling your own products if you can easily promote affiliate products and make up to 50% commissions (if you’re lucky)?

Let me show you what creating your own products in 2012 and beyond can do for your business:

21 Reasons Why You Should Be Creating Your Own Products in 2012 and Beyond

It was amazing to see reason #16 in action a couple of days ago. I offered my list my best selling product as a gift if they were interested in joining my attraction marketing team by 31 December 2011. My inbox went crazy! 21 Reasons Why You Should Be Creating Your Own Products in 2012 and Beyond

Imagine creating authority online, growing your business, making 100% commissions, earning passive income and more, selling your very own products!

I’m currently enjoying these benefits and would love for you to do the same. Do NOT miss out!

And, you don’t have to do this on your own…

Product Creation Academy

If your business is lacking products right now or you’re not generating the profit that you deserve from your business, then there’s one man out there who can help you produce profitable products FAST…  Phill Turner.

He has helped me to increase my profit by creating just a few products, spending only a few hours on each. I couldn’t have done it without Phill’s training.

Now, Phill will be conducting his 2012 Product Creation Academy (yes it’s an affiliate link – I love promoting Phill’s products because I know from personal experience how hard he works to encourage people like you and me to just do it!)…

…and I know you’ll want to be first in the queue…..(well, second as I’ve just bought my ticket!)…

Phill’s a dynamo and a proven expert on the product creation front and now he’s sharing his knowledge in this one day hand’s-on seminar where YOU get full access to his 5 step Product Creation Formula (plus some awesome bonuses).

So if you’ve ever said “Oh I’ve got a great idea for a product but I’m not sure how to go about making it”, or feel you’ve got a book, CD or DVD inside you just waiting to burst out, this is where you need to be on 15 January 2012…

Phill will be focusing heavily on Clickbank as a lot of people are interested in learning about how to promote their products on this largest digital products outlet. There are thousands upon thousands of affiliates there, waiting to sell your products.

Make sure you go and check out all the details and secure your place. Let Phill show you exactly how you can become one of the thousands of businesses and individuals who are creating their own products in record time.

Imagine having your inbox popping with orders while you sleep!

Good thought?

This is extremely comprehensive!

Here’s what I thought of:
1.) Have the flexibility to increase the product price, or to allow time-sensitive promotions
2.) Have the flexibility to bundle multiple products for special offers
3.) Leverage on affiliate to build YOUR brand and your list
4.) Allows you to sell resale rights of your product, (which is a product by itself).

Manuel Marino December 28, 2011 at 11:00 AM

I’ve done something similar with my audio guide, I gave it as Christmas gift to my friends.

I think anyway, that affiliate marketing is still important, so probably a 50%/50% time dedicated on your products/ affiliate products is a reasonable solution.

I see that you use CommentLuv plugin, if you have time to surf, there are new CommentLuv enabled sites.


Mavis Nong December 28, 2011 at 11:14 AM

That’s great to hear, Manuel. Welcome to my blog! :)

I have a great resource for CommentLuv enabled sites, thank you.



JosephDShillerExclusiveAnimationArt December 29, 2011 at 6:15 PM

Great Article Mavis. I just want to make a point and an observation. I believe, in many instances there are individuals who learn how to become entrepreneurs by observing those who already are. In other words, you might have to work for someone else’s brand first, in order to learn how to do it(the basics, that is) before you can graduate to the next step and do the same with your own brand. So, like Manuel mentions above, 50-50 might work well until you are able to stay afloat on your own. I noticed you also have The Gold Rush Product and Phil Turner products on this page. Now that I think of it, the ideal look would be to have your own brand hi-lighted with the support of a couple of good affiliates.

Agreed, Joseph. We all start from somewhere. I still promote the affiliate products that I use and love – passive income! :)

Thanks for the visit and input.

Thank you, Mavis! I consider your blog an important resource.

I’ve got myself as well a CommentLuv list that I try to update weekly.

Talking about marketing, it’s not easy for an artist like me to understand the marketing fundamentals. You know, a creative mind doesn’t work well with business.

But sometimes, creative ideas can open totally new markets, and it’s not clear how right brain and left brain professionals can interact and create wonders.

But, anyway, it’s interaction the key to success.

I agree with Abhi, that before trying to implement in life all your ideas about product creation, it will be better to develop a plan, and not even general, but a detailed one! It can be very important

True, Amanda.


Caleb December 29, 2011 at 12:59 AM

I was on a webinar hosted by Willie Crawford not too long where he mentioned that you got to start thinking about developing your own products so that other more experienced marketers will take you more seriously. In this way they will be more inclined to do joint ventures with you which is something you’ll end up seeking eventually.

And even though affiliate marketing is a great way to get started as well as get a name for yourself provided you get good at it of course, it is just too awesome to have your own affiliate program for your own products as this would multiply earnings exponentially!

So looks like towards the middle of 2012 you’ll start seeing some fresh products from the MarketSecretsBlogger …

Sure I’ll probably start of alot sooner using quality plrs and such but the ultimate is creating a totally unique product from scratch :)

That’s very true, Caleb. When you create and market your own products, people start taking you more seriously.

I look forward to more of your products… Keep going! :)



Ryan Biddulph December 29, 2011 at 6:25 AM

Hi Mavis,

The chart tells the story.

So many benefits to creating your own product. Put you name on something and you can gain instant authority. More money in your pocket, more clout.

Simply be willing to put in a little more effort and you can reap greater rewards with your own creation.

Thanks for sharing your insight Mavis.



Mavis Nong December 30, 2011 at 1:26 PM

I couldn’t agree with you more, Ryan.

You’re welcome :)



Rick Castro from Apartment for Rent December 29, 2011 at 6:53 AM

A friend of mine is doubting about start a business on 2012. Maybe I’ll show this to him and he could change his mind. I also got to say that since I started my business, (though at first was tough) I learned a lot how to correctly manage it and of course I’ve also earned good profit. Thanks Mavis for sharing.


Mavis Nong December 30, 2011 at 1:23 PM

You’re welcome, Rick.

Hello Mavis!
This is a great post! I also believe that promoting your own products it is much more creative, beneficial and profitable. Nevertheless, I still feel that it is quite difficult to find the idea and build something innovative. That’s what makes you an expert; a shining example and an inspiration to us all. Keep on the good work Mavis.
I wish you a happy New Year, with joy and good health.

First of all, loved the chart, Mavis!

Secondly, I am inspired.

I’ve been putting off creating my own product for a while, but no more. Will get working on it as soon as the holiday dust settles in.

I’m actually expecting your product since you mentioned in the TGC shutting down post. I’m sure it will be a product that people will love to buy.

And you answered the question in my mind for a very long time: “Why is Ana not creating a product, yet?” :)

Mavis, I see that you’re rocking the sphere with success after success and product after product :) I’m so happy for you gal!

Hello Mavis…

Definitely an excellent list that not only defines why we want to create our own products but also provides the inspiration to do so.

I have created a few products for list building purposes, now it’s time to “kick it up a notch” and take it to the next level.

Thanks for the inspiration on top of the advice!

Rev. Demetric Canada December 29, 2011 at 5:50 PM

Mavis, I LOVE your report! I have three products that are self-created: One is a lottery system that I created and drafted into book format; the second is a unique new system for energy conservation (residential and commercial); and lastly, a modernly unique automobile hydrolic system that will turn that industry on its ear! I need help bringing these products to market. Please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Thanks, Demetric. You can learn more about marketing your products online here.


Denis December 30, 2011 at 2:28 AM

Very nice post. This is always something that I’ve been meaning to get around to but just keep making excuses. One of the most difficult things I find about it is creating the sales, or splash page. They, or at least appear to me, somewhat challenging to write…..


Mavis Nong January 3, 2012 at 12:29 PM

You can hire a professional to help you with that, Denis.

Ming Jong Tey from hostgator coupon December 30, 2011 at 10:24 AM

Hi Mavis,

Having your own product is definitely fantastic as it gives you a lot of leverage. Instead of looking for good converting offers, now you need to make your product a converting offer to attract affiliates. Though there are a lot more work involved, the results will speak for itself :)
