  • These are products that are based on information such as books, USB media, and digital media
  • If their fulfillment is outsourced, they are infinitely scalable for sales purposes
  • Physical goods can be converted into information products or digital goods
  • For example, take the 3D printer or microtractor. Instead of shipping a product, one can:
  • Provide a high quality educational build manual
  • Provide one-click drop shipping of parts
  • The buyer then assembles the product themselves.
  • This function as in information product 'kit' - resulting in a physical product
  • Because this product is digitized - its sales can scale without effort of the provider. This requires the fulfillment system build manual to be produced.
  • A support community can be created online, and consulting can be offered by expert builders
