Hello, hello. This is Debbie Drum, and welcome to the five types of checklists to monetize. This is such an exciting topic because, as you know, we talk about passive income with content here on the Facebook group. We also talk about low content, not a lot of writing, not a lot of time, not a lot of commitment, not a lot of outsourcing that you have to do to go ahead and start selling something. Checklists are actually a low content product because they’re pretty easy to make. However, that doesn’t mean that they’re not valuable. If you are watching on YouTube, please go ahead subscribe, like, and comment. We talk about passive income for your business to grow, and these are little things that you can implement right away to start growing your business, adding value, and making money.
People love checklists. It just keeps you organized. It doesn’t allow things to get in the way and that you forget to do something because you got a checklist. You as a marketer can sell them. You can give them away. You can bundle them up. You can add value with them. So let’s say you have a book. You can add a companion checklist, or one checklist, or many checklists, or a whole book of checklist that you can pile on and just add, increase the value of whatever it is your selling.
Let’s get into the five different types of checklists that you can create. Number one is the procedural checklist. A procedural checklist is the most popular and most used type of checklists. This is a step-by-step tutorial arranged in chronological order, so it’s just a step by step, do this, do this, do this, do this. Simple. So if you know any step-by-step process, like step-by-step process to install WordPress, a step-by-step process on how to build a backyard chicken coop, a step-by-step process on how to eat a plant-based diet. That’s a fad right now or … So just an example of how you can lay out something for people, have them follow it, and then keep it forever because these are things that they’re either going to probably be doing over and over again. I don’t know about you, but I have procedures that I do over and over again, but I still go through a checklist because I don’t want to forget to do anything. And some of the procedures that I have are literally like 20, 25, 30, maybe even 50 more steps. You can’t manage all that in your head all the time.
Second one is a connective checklists. It’s a list of connected ways, options, shortcuts, or similar items. Here’s some examples. Places to find antiques to purchase, what to look for when purchasing an antique, places to sell antiques, so kind of like a list. These items don’t necessarily have steps involved, although they could. You can help people find jobs. You can be creative with the connective checklists, all right? So, this is more maybe a list, maybe just like a quick guide type of thing. That’s what I’m envisioning when I see the connective checklist.
The next one is called discovery. This type of checklist works users through a series of questions, task, and prompts so that the user can arrive at a useful conclusion. If you’re helping anyone out of some kind of trouble that they’re in, you’re working with someone on getting them better with something, whatever it is that’s happening in their life, you can take someone through a process and actually help that person along and come to their own conclusions, which is really amazing. And it’s one of the reasons why I love really smart workbooks and these types of low content books because you could really help people get from A to B. I’ve been through this, and I wouldn’t necessarily say a lot of times this is not a checklist. This could be like a whole questionnaire. It’s more of a worksheet.
Okay, next is the interrogatory checklist. This style of checklist assumes that the person has already taken specific actions and then ask questions about these actions. Did you do this? Did you wake up and do your breathing meditation this morning? Did you wake up and do the exercise book as you promise to do in a previous module? Whatever it is. Especially if you’re an expert at something, it really defines you as an expert because you know where people can make a mistake maybe, forget to do one thing in the process or maybe it’s a hard thing in the process. You could get in there and really see if the person is going in and following through these steps that they can’t leave out.
So, I like this down here. The difference between the interrogatory and procedural is the procedural checklist would check that the user had chosen a title for their blog. The interrogatory checklist also asks users to be sure if they’ve chosen a good title. So maybe taking them through and saying, “Did you do this, this, this, this, and this to get yourself to have a good title?”
And the last one is diagnostic. The idea behind this checklist is to diagnose and fix problems, errors. and mistakes when things aren’t working properly. So, it lists things out. The 37 steps to take to improve your sales letter. Fix. Helps you fix things, right? The diagnostic. I’m like, “Ooh. I already did all this, and I followed everything in the checklist, but here are the different problems that you could be having. and now I still am helping you find the solution.” Pretty cool, right? This is really, really cool stuff.
This is just a sample taken out of Checklists Profits, which is an awesome product by Amy Harrop as I was reading through this document and as I was looking at the templates. You’re going to learn how to quickly create high value sellable checklist about a topic you love talking about, get dozens of examples of every critical part. You can understand how to start from scratch with ready-to-sell checklists that accomplishes your two primary goals, serves as a source of income for you, and making a difference in the lives of people. Win-win. I love that, I really, really love that, and I really think it’s true. That’s at debdrum.com/checklistprofits.
One of the things … You’ll see on this page here all the information you’re going to get with the checklist. It pretty much goes from A to Z, everything you need to know. But really, what excites me are the bonuses, so 101 ideas for a checklist. Then, we have the done-for-you fill-in-the-blank checklist sales letter template. There’s so many templates in here. You don’t have to create this from scratch. You don’t want to be starting on a blank document and then having to create the template and then having to put in your information. You can already plug and play and pretty much how either a book or printables done by today if you really want it to do this. That’s what’s really cool.
Do you personally sell checklists? I don’t sell checklists directly on different sites. I do checklists inside of products, which is kind of the next level when it comes to doing these types of checklists. There’s more income to be made with coupling another product with the checklist because it adds value. And that’s one of the benefits that I talked about earlier. I actually buy checklists from other people to resell them myself. So, there’s so many different stages of the content business and then niching, niching down to the checklists the business, okay? You’re going to actually learn that inside of this, the PDF, which I really like. You can learn about how you can monetize checklists and all the different ways that you can monetize it.
If you just look up checklists and you go to different marketplaces like Amazon, Etsy, Google will be your guide pretty much. You can find places where they are selling these types of checklists and printables, okay? So you can do a little bit of research on your own, and you can also scout out the checklists that are selling better than others to get some ideas on what you can do.
The first one is procedural. Number two is connective. Number three is discovery. Number four is interrogatory. And number five is diagnostics. So, those are like … These will give you ideas of what kind of checklists you can create, but some of them kind of turn into more like workbooks and questionnaires and even products, which is the whole idea of what you want to constantly create, especially if you’re someone in a niche and you want to keep putting out content. That’s the name of the game. That’s what I’m doing. I’m putting out content right now. It’s what you do to make money. Passive income with content all the way.
