The Future of Online Information Marketing
I think this is the right part of the forum to post this.
I don't know if you have seen this yet, but I just watched this video and it's a darn good idea that Brad Fallon has come up with. They created a site that allows publishers to upload free and paid content that users can browse using a search function. It's basically a warehouse for information products - audio, video, ebooks. The categories as of right now are: ecommerce, marketing, entrepreneur, income, online advertising, online sales, small business, success, webmaster, how to, blogging, adsense, ebay, and web 2.0
When I watched the Intro Video intro video I was pretty struck by the simplicity and magnitude of the idea. It's kinda long but worth the watch. Especially if you're into making money online.
I went to the site and took a look around and there's quite a bit of valuable content there that's free.
You can just skip to the main site here: Main Site
Once there I would suggest you browse the stuff that's posted for free. There are videos, audios, and ebooks that you can grab. No opt in page or sign up necessary; just start looking.
If you're interested in checking out the affiliate program you can find it here:Affiliate Information
"There are a few things that Free IQ is not.
Free IQ is not a social interaction or “party” site; it is not intended for minors.
Free IQ is not a site on which to upload unauthorized content.
Most importantly, Free IQ is not a site for “free” content that serves as a “sales pitch” or platform. We accept only content that educates, informs, and/or provides tools, techniques, skills and/or other benefits."
I think it's along the lines of what Steve has done here on his site - provide high quality free content that will have people coming back for more and more. Just like his site here, there is no requirement to buy anything and no requirement to sign up and give your information. But all of his free content has been of such high value that when he finally creates a product for sale, many people will want to buy it because he has a proven track record of giving people information that is valuable to their lives.
And even if people don't want to purchase any products, they can read his posts and get tremendous value from that - for free!
It seems like this idea has the potential to take off and would benefit people on many different levels; from going there to grab free information; to uploading and selling products you've created; to driving traffic there through affiliate links if you're into marketing/making money online.
It will be interesting to see the evolution of it. I think the basic premise of giving away more higher value content for free is what's going to make it take off.

Yes but it needs lots of polishing... you have a mesh of it(video, ebook, audio) all together and it's a mess... i stated it before: too bad i don't have paypal account yet..
if this lifts off this will be great tool for all of us who have something to do with on-line business and not only...

Yeah Mayo I agree with you. I found the idea behind the site to be really interesting. I've just been looking closer at some of the content and a few of the ebooks I've already peaked out seem to be a violation of their terms - attempting an upsell or a capture page to grab name and email address.
I think if they don't police it tightly it will become another repository for unscrupulous sales attempts.
