The Internet has opened up business in all sorts of ways.
It costs nothing to start a website.
Anyone can write a blog.
Putting ads on your pages takes minutes and requires no selling, no effort and almost no work at all.
And the revenues can be fantastic.
Millions of people have joined the Internet business revolution and have either swapped their day job for days of writing articles, or are enjoying some useful extra money with a hobby they love.
But earning on the Internet isn't limited to ad clicks and free content.
Some of the most popular goods bought and sold online are digital information goods.
These are items that you can't find in stores and which can only downloaded from the Internet. They might include software but usually they're ebooks and newsletters.
The advantage for the buyer is that he doesn't even have to leave his house and drive down to the bookstore to buy them. Nor does he have to wait for an online store to process his order, stick the package in the mail and for the mail carrier to deliver before he can receive his purchase.
With a digital information product, a customer can buy what he wants from his living room and receive it immediately.
That's a huge benefit.
And for the creators of the products, building them is simple, marketing them is easy and once your system is up and running, you can sit back and leave the money to come in all by itself.
That's really the biggest benefit of information products like these. They can create a passive revenue stream that continues to generate income even while you're sleeping, watching television, soaking up rays on the beach... or working on your next great idea.
You won't have to find a retailer, fill your garage with wholesale goods or lay out on expensive production costs in the hope that the sales will recoup your investment.
With digital information products, you just have to create the goods, upload them and take the money when people want to download them.
And the really good news is that you don't even have to create an information product of your own to benefit from this opportunity.
It's also possible to take a share of the sales price of other people's information products by promoting them on your websites. That's very simple to do and it can still generate large amounts of passive income without any of the work involved in producing a product yourself.
Whether you choose to sell your own information products though, or promote others' for a cut of the sales price, there's one service that's just invaluable.
ClickBank.com is the place to find digital information products to buy, sell... and to promote.
The site lists thousands of items in a range of different categories, and lets any publisher submit their own products.
For publishers, it means that you already have one good sales outlet for your products. But it also means that you have access to thousands of affiliate sellers who can't wait to promote your product for you.
