The definite dictionary to create and sell infoproducts [Includes examples]

Probably you are thinking why I want to share a dictionary with you. You can even think it is something very basic. The reality is that I wasn’t born being an expert. Every day I include new words to my vocabulary because as marketers we have the obsession of inventing concepts to explain how we make big things.

This dictionary is very special to me. It is a dictionary based on my experience as an infoproducer and I do it because I don’t want you to be in a situation where you have to spend hours studying and understanding some concepts.
