I strongly recommend that you make sure you have your marketing of affiliate programs sorted first, before you start making your own product.
There is twice the learning curve when marketing and selling your own product. And I am concerned that if you get into that, that you'll be spreading yourself too thinly before you've got yourself going properly as an affiliate.
A lot of my products are high quality because I have injected a LOT of time, money (eg $50k to $150k) and resources (such as www.rocketspanish.com
I think other gurus telling people to start online by making their own product end up having the internet cluttered with junk products which is not something that I would teach. I've found it so much easier to teach people to get a full time living from affiliate programs first, then when you can quit your job and go full time, you might want to consider having your own product.
Even then, the top 2 affiliates that I've trained are making over $10,000 a week just from affiliate programs. (one of them is now started developing his own product, but took him that long to worry about it).
The other thing is that affilorama is that is all about how to be an affiliate.
People find it confusing enough where to start as it is, without confusing them even further by trying to get them to learn how to make, sell and support their own product.
There are a lot of products out there that teach you how to make and sell an ebook and that is something that would take me at least another 80 video lessons to explain properly (because I teach how to create quality businesses, not junk that won't work long term).
I want to keep affilorama focused on how to make money from affiliate programs, there are plenty more lessons that people are requesting and I'd prefer to keep affilorama focussed on that, than try to be a jack of all trades here.
If you really want to learn product creation and marketing, then the best value for money tutorial out there is probably http://myks.sitesell.com/download9.html
Hope that answers your question. Keep up the good work and enjoy your trip overseas!
