Differentiating in the information product business
is not only crucial to our success but sometimes
it becomes mandatory. Especially whey eBay changed
their policies to not allow downloadable products
to be sold through action or buy now type listings.

Turning a digital product into a physical one
used to be something savvy marketers did to
explode their sales. Now, when it comes to ebay
we are *forced* to move that direction.
Since the ebay changed happened, I started
receiving one question over and over again:

“How do I create a CD version of my ebook”

There are many ways to do this but one of my
favorite ones is “web style” approach.

If you are familiar with creating a simple website
this will be very easy for you to follow.

The basic idea here is to create a simple website
that delivers the ebook and all associated bonuses
and put the website on a CD. Then make it so
that when the CD is inserted in the computer,
the website starts automatically.

Here are the steps:

  1. Create a folder on your computer that will
    contain all the files that will go on the CD.
    Call it: “CD folder”
  2. Inside that folder, create another folder that
    will contain the files that the user will see.
    call it “My Files”
  3. In the “My Files” Folder, copy your ebook file
    and all the bonuses.
  4. Then inside the “My Files” folder, create a
    SIMPLE webpage (thanks.html) that thanks the
    customer for the order and has links to
    download the main product and additional
    download links for the bonusesTIP: since your thanks.html is in the “My Files”
    folder and your product files also in the same
    folder, the URL to the download is simply the
    file name (trust me).
  5. Then lastly, you need to make the CD start
    automatically. I use a free tool called:
    “CD interface Studio” which is free to download
    from here:
    I use the CD studio to make the thanks.html
    start automatically when the CD is inserted.
  6. Burn the CD
  7. TEST the CD if it works – You are done

This process works great to convert your PLR products
into CDs/DVDs and make a lot more money this way.

I am thinking to create a step by step video tutorial
showing you exactly how this works. Let me know your
thoughts by leaving your comments below.

If you are really interested to take your digital products
and turn them into high quality physical products, I recommend

After my 3 day event on June 27-29 I decided to get away
and relax a bit. Afterall teaching for 3 days straight is not
as easy as it may sound.

Anyway we went to vegas for 5 days, then on the 5th day
we decided to extend one more day since we are having fun
then 6 days turned into seven before I realized I was
“vegased out” and decided to get back to cali.

So I posted some pictures as I promised you in my previous email.

Here is a picture of the “Welcome to Nevada” Sign we saw on the
way in

The view from the room was breathtaking to say the least. With
a full front view of the “Strip” I felt was in heaven.
Reason I took that room was the promise of a “panoramic” view
through floor to ceiling windows on both walls (corner room)

Here are a few pictures I took from the room (I took these
as I was writing my last email to you)




Speaking of piggybacking on other people’s advertising. You can
take it as BIZZARE or maybe as a great business idea…

When you thought you saw it all…

Ebay Slot Machines…. (Did you think ebay was into autions? hmm)


Here is a shot of me inside the Wynn. (yeah, that’s indoors)

I couldnt go to vegas and not visit the famous buffets. Here I am
on my 3rd plate

(which was a toped up plate of Alaskan King Crab Legs) mmmmm…

That’s the buffet at the Wynn if you are interested (about $35/person)

A closer look…



and AFTER…


Oh, lets not forget the dessert.

Creme Brule, Chocolate tart topped with gold leaves, tiramisu,
cheesecake, chocholate cake, and what else… Watermelon (my favorite)

Vegas was pretty Cool.

When you stayed inside that is…

Outside was HOT HOT HOT… 112 degrees per my car’s thermometer

(I saw it go up to 117 but did not think of taking a picture then)


And the California Agricultural checkpoint on our way back home



they lived happily ever after…
