It’s day number five of the 90-Day Residual Money Product Creation Challenge being hosted by Tiffany Dow and cohosted by yours truly.
I didn’t create a video today because I felt you needed a break. 🙂
Instead of giving you more research (which you will eventually do more of later on), I felt it was a good idea to remind you to get your product outline in order.
Creating Your Outline
Have you assembled any of your gathered research into something that resembles a Table of Contents? You should have enough information to get your chapters underway. Start by taking the various segments of your research and pairing them together in a logical fashion.
Naturally, if you’re writing a book about baking cakes, your last chapter would talk about “Icing for Your Cake.” For example, (1) Gathering Ingredients, (2) Blending the Components, (3) Baking Your Tasty Treat, and (4) Topping with Flavor.
A step by step approach is best so your product makes the most sense to readers. If necessary, go through the motions of baking a cake in your kitchen to prevent any information from being left out of the sequence.
If I were to stick to the theme of print newsletters, my rough outline might resemble the following:

If I were to go with this idea, I have no doubts that the TOC would change as I write. That’s one wonderful aspect of being the creator – the product can change as you progress!
Take the weekend to get your outline in order. If you feel inclined to write a little something under each chapter section, feel free to do so. If you want to go back to Ubersuggest.org and/or the Google search tools – do it!
You have the weekend to catch up or move forward. I’ll see you again on Monday with another Product Creation Challenge video!

What I Accomplished Today
I contacted the aMember Pro website and inquired about upgrading my software for the new BonnieGeanSolutions.com website. Now I know how much money I need to get the upgraded software.
I designed a new background for the site using my brand colors. 🙂 I think it’s important that my brand colors remain consistent. I want people to think of BONNIE GEAN when they see “teal” and black together.
I added more to the product sales letter, performed more research, and created a template. I’m tickled pink!
Your turn! How do you feel about your progress so far? Leave a comment and let me know.
