Advice so good you'd pay for it?

I'm just curious but with all the free advice available on the net (granted some of it lacks credibility) what would make you actually pay over money for advice e.g. an affiliate ebook? i think personally it would have to be something that i just couldnt get anywhere else (but maybe thats just because i dont know where to look?) ... what are your thoughts? what would actually make you pay for information?

Hi Jason, good point, I assume folks would be willing to pay for quality information if it will satisfy a quick need and provide a solution to a problem and save the need for running around sourcing that info from many avenues.
Information overload may be a factor that will inspire a purchase also, and also the quality of a squeeze page and some nice graphics sometimes may swing a borderline purchaser to press the pay button , this is where pricing of a product is important.
Over the years I must have downloaded 30,000 or more ebooks both free, paid and from membership sites and have found that quality and price do not always go together.
Some of the free stuff have been real goldmines , some of the $67 (or more) products have been duds with more needed and expected info missing than was present.
One can never really tell the quality of that info product by a price or the graphics/sales page granted until actually after down loading , except if one is willing to research review sites /recommendations , this however takes valuable time.
So I would say that a combination of quick access (aka conconvenience ) quality information ( needed to be hammered home in the sales page with maybe a free chapter or so to inspire !) and a reasonable price tag may be a couple of the ingredients needed to inspire someone to purchase.

well, i think this can be tuned into a good business. offer advice and gain the money. but free is something that not suits with me.

thanks heaps robert, you make some valid points. i guess back in the day we would all just rely on that trusty set of encyclopedia brittanicas we all had in the bookcase - now the playing field has changed and everyone needs a healthy dose of skepticism to find quality content on the net.

thanks for your comments

I think good quality info is a must.
But it must also 1. Solve my problem and/or 2. Be convenient and save me time by having info in one spot.

My 2 cents.

The internet is an overload of information. I think the answer to just about every question is out there on the web but finding it can be hard. People like things to be organized and packaged up into information such as an ebook that gives them the answers they are looking for without googling for hours.

But having said that, to get best results you need to know the target market and also put a unique spin on the information and/or how it's presented.

Just my thoughts...
