It's not clear from the title, but this book is about creating information products such as e-books and selling them online. The concept is intriguing: Write about something you know well, package it as a PDF or e-book, sell it online with automatic product fulfillment. Write it once and make money from it over and over again without additional effort. Repeat the process,add more info products to your catalog, and end up with multiple moderate streams of income that combine into a river.

Decent information but showing its age. This product could use an update at this point. I'll still try to execute some of the information from the book with modifications for being 10 years old ...more

5 stars

I want you to have a deeper awareness of the astonishing opportunity for profit all around you.

The Six-Figure Second Income is the first book of its kind I have read and I am pleased that I decided to do so – the book delivers what is promises and goes deeply into detail on how one can generate a successful income by creating an information product (report, e-book...) and selling it online.

David Lindahl and Jonathan Rozek start the book by dismissing some of the usual misconceptions (or f

A very complete step by step approach to create an information product and selling it online. I like the fact that it's very detailed and it explains everything (finally! I know how google ads works!) and provides up-to-date resources on their website. If anyone is willing to start now, they only need to follow page after page. It really seems very simple to do!

I can see how someone could make profits out of these information products, but they seem to be so specific that I have to wonder at the

Great book. I seriously learned so much. It's not necessarily a step-by-step guide, but it's composed in an orderly way so that you can either takes steps toward creating your own business as you read through, or you can pick parts out of the book that you want to use right away. This book alone motivated me to start my own business. I recently invested in a product that will help me get started. As soon as I get it and make a few of my own starter products, I'll be reading through this book aga ...more

Very informative and useful for those people who are trying to sell using a website. Internet marketing is a fairly complex thing and the ideas and tips in this book really help you understand it better and provide excellent ground work to get moving with your site. If you do not have an idea of what to sell then it can be less than helpful.

A book which striked me at the moment I needed most. Author is giving thoughts about how to start online-business of books/articles/teachings/courses or other content, and at this point I was thinking about releasing and e-book about programming. This book gave me a great deal of advice and helped me to improve my upcoming e-book, as well as its marketing.

David Lindahl had shared ideas on earning online income with good income in a booming economy.
This book shares ideas on earning money on adding more products on catalog and earning piles of money with good motivation.I consider this an excellent Oppurtunity to start a new business with good venture.

This book provided me with lots of marketing info. I've been racking my brain trying to come up with some info I can market, but haven't settled on anything yet. Implementing the principles in this book, do seem to be more complicated than they make it seem, but it's not rocket science, right?? :) ...more

The information on marketing your info product was worth the read, alone, but I had already colored myself impressed by this book long before I even reached that section! This will be a go-to reference down the road, for sure!

Good to know how to move in the info-product world but I think it is too simply, not what I really think that kind of book should talk about. It is not enough even if it is well written

Great book. Lots of examples about the creation and marketing of info products. The section of 40+ examples on delivering the content (chapter 3) alone was worth the price of the book.
