7 Incredibly Simple Ways To Profit Wildly From Public Domain Material
If you're in the business of marketing online, a major portion of your income will come from your ability to deliver quality content and products to your market.
Now, besides creating these yourself, one of the quickest and cheapest way to acquire all the content and products you need is in the public domain.
A word of warning though...
While a large portion of this material is "fair use", not all the works entered into the public domain database are clear of copyright restrictions.
A true public domain work is information open to the public for use, including copying, distributing and modification at no cost. Currently works published 75 years ago are considered to be public domain, while those published from 1924-1963 may be public domain - IF the copyright was not renewed.
I would highly recommend reading the public domain FAQ pages at these websites first before you use any material:
Assuming you now have all the public domain content you want, the million dollar question is:
"How do I truly monetize them to create long-term profit streams?"
The answer is in these 7 simple methods:
Method #1: Kick Start An Information Empire
How many mini sites in a week can you set up to sell info-products that has already been created for you? It's a no-brainer.
If one mini site generates a conservative $300 per month, ten of these would mean a nice income of $3,000 every month! What if you just concentrate on getting the formula down to a science and duplicate these mini sales machines every day? Think about it.
Apply this concept to auction listings and you can also create a fortune with public domain and eBay.
Method #2: Churn Out Complete Niche Websites
Split up public domain material and use them as pages of targeted niche content for your website. It's a simple idea buthardly anyone exploit it.
All you do is select relevant public domain books and break them down into instant content. With a little SEO skills, planning and targeted keyword-based public domain content, you can spit out new websites that ranks highly in the search engines overnight.
This is a better solution and enhancement to automated site creation tools, which being essentially carbon copies of each other, have high risks of being banned.
While it takes work, this is one quick way to develop new niche sites on demand. You can then profit from them using Google Adsense, affiliate programs and advertising revenues. This method can also be applied to blogs.
Method #3: Get Traffic With Viral Lead Generators
Basically public domain material can be fully or partially used as content for your mini ebooks, which you simply create and give away to bring back traffic to your site. Adding a viral marketing effect to your mini ebooks will explode your trafficfor life - without any cost to you.

Then simply submit these 'instant' articles and sit back. Your personal branding and name recognition will skyrocket beyond belief! You'll also receive credibility and expert status with your articles, provided they're good.
Method #6: Create Multiple Products At Lightning Speed
Have you thought about repackaging and creating different products out of public domain material? Just changing the format can vastly increase the perceive value and worth of the product.
