Everything You Wanted to Know About Public Domain Info, but Were Too Afraid to Ask!


What to Look Out For:

Copyright - you absolutely must check on this - violating someone's copyright is not clever and can be a really expensive mistake not to mention seriously damaging your reputation. Is it really public domain? All those lawyers fees can really mount up when checking into all this but believe me, you really don't want to end up in court over it.

Public Domain Content - If you have the money to have a lawyer look at copyright for you then fine, go ahead and get started. Where can you find this type of content? It can be difficult to find content that is free to use but here are a few links to get you started:

http://www.gutenberg.org/
http://www.wikimedia.org/
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/index.html

Master Resale Rights - If you can't afford expensive lawyers what else can you do? One rather less pricey way is to buy Master Resale Rights to a product - this gives you the opportunity to name yourself as the author, use the content in another product, rewrite the whole thing - the possibilities are endless. Just be aware with this that you will need to look at the terms and conditions of what you are allowed to do with the product before you buy.

On a budget? - not to worry, there are still many ways you can find great content without spending a fortune or worrying about whether you can legally use it. Sites such as http://www.infogoround.com, and http://www.thelostfiles.com provide guaranteed public domain or private label content for a monthly fee. You could also sign up to some of the well known internet marketer's newsletters. Why? Well if you're serious about internet marketing you should be checking out all the latest happenings anyway, but a lot of newsletter owners will have free ebooks, giveaways and articles to download - some of which you will be able to use as your own.

So you've got your content ready to go and you've checked your rights and permissions but there is one more thing to think about - sites such as http://www.copyscape.com can check for duplicate content on the internet and of course so can the search engines. This could mean anything from the search engines deciding they won't rate your site as highly because the exact same content is available elsewhere to some smarty pants asking you if you really did write that incredibly good article because they've seen someone else claiming that they wrote it too, so you do need to be aware of this when looking to use content you haven't personally created, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't go ahead and make the most of all that wonderful information.

What Can You Do?

You could just read the information to learn from it yourself; you could read it to get ideas for businesses, more articles, content, the list is limited only by your imagination.

How about:

Ebooks
Print Books
Presentations
Membership Sites
Face to face courses
Mini courses
Teleclass content
Webcast content
Podcast content
Blog content
Content for your Autoresponder
Ezine content
Articles for your site to build AdSense income pages
Viral Reports
Tips Lists

When it comes to using all the content you have gathered, you need to look through it all and decide what you want to produce. If you plan to use content from more than one source, such as 2 or 3 articles by different authors to be combined into a report, you will need to go through and change the content into a similar style, check that it is all written in the same tense, make sure the formatting is the same throughout, check for spelling and grammar (for example - spelling for some words is different in the US than the UK) and look through all the articles to see if any of the points made are duplicated.

Once you've done this, make a list of points you want to make in your report, read the articles through again and start combining them together to fit what you want to say - cut and paste to copy sections into the right place.

Next, look at the way your draft reads now and see if it fits your style of writing, your personality and your business. Reword it to fit with this - there's no point in producing a very formally written, stiff sounding report for a hobby site.

At this point you could just tweak it, proof read it, and then go ahead and publish it but to take it a step further and make it really unique, why not look at how you might rewrite it so that all of the content is yours - now you've got the basic idea down and laid out, it shouldn't take you long to reword things, add in some of your own ideas and keywords that fit your site, and maybe a few quotes and suddenly you're looking at something that no-one else has got, that the search engines will love and that no-one can claim you copied.

Time to start creating!

Find Your Success Sweet Spot!
Most people don't show anyone their scars and bruises or share their "up to their eyeballs in the dirty stuff", real and RAW stories of what the journey to success is sometimes like. They usually reveal the rainbows and glitz of it instead. The pretty and SHINY version. When only the SHINY and glammed-up version, smelling like roses is revealed it seems off and PHONEY, like they're disingenuous or hiding something.

Why Are New Entrepreneurs Only Able to Copy Other Businesses - Little or No Original Thinking?
As a former franchisor of an original concept, I always assumed that all entrepreneurs were like me, deep thinkers finding new niches in the market place to exploit with their original solutions. Today, what seems to pass for "entrepreneurship" is much different. It's like everyone who starts a business is considered an entrepreneur? Mostly, what I see is everyone copying everyone else. What's worse many of these new business owners think themselves so damn clever as they do. Seriously, the situation is out-of-control, so pervasive it's now the norm, almost as if it is considered acceptable - Why?

A Handshake Is Still the Best Agreement - But, a Signed One Stands a Better Chance in Court
Once upon a time, the handshake was a celebrated moment in an agreement where two or more people joined together to pursue a goal for individual and mutual benefit. Not only did this gesture memorialize a unified front between the parties, but also the event signified the volunteered promise of honor and integrity that the value of a word and the physical exclamation point at the end of the sentence suggested. This simple act galvanized an agreement that was greater than anything in this world. It meant that the full faith and trust of the parties were bound by the singularly most important possession one held: the honor of personal namesake and the engaged the word, honor, and trust that was expressed, implied, and promised. Such a simple activity sealed a party's word to his forthcoming actions and those actions would be trustworthy. It did not need to be proven or backed by paper that showed that the person - in fact - agreed and promised. The person's name was the guarantee and once upon a time, that meant something to people.

How To Tell If Someone Is An Entrepreneur
Most people talk, few people do. If you want to spot an "entrepreneur", look at how they *do* things. If they're a stickler for the rules, and basically just want to please people - they're not an entrepreneur. If they are religiously self determined, they're an entrepreneur. Obviously, other facets apply - but that's pretty much the core of it.
