I've been getting some feedback over the last week or so about Government Public Domain content.
After my "rant" the other day... I thought I would tell you about some cool places to find current and evergreen content.
Did you know that you can find content online - to use right this minute - about almost any niche topic... and this content could have been published by the writer today???
You asked for it - now you've got access to millions of pages, video, audio and graphics - all free for the taking.
- Resources that would let you help people that are having difficulty making your mortgage payment?
- Find safety tips relating to asbestos, mold, radon, and more.
- Help for Homeowners Facing the Loss of Their Home
- You can help solve Education Issues for Parents
- Share tips for a Healthy Pregnancy or even Popular Baby Names
- Give tips for dealing with postpartum depression, drug and alcohol abuse
- Give away (or sell) reports (already done for you) about starting a business or self-employed women start-ups.
- Home Schooling resources
- Recalls on an enormous amount of products
- It's endless!!
I thought I'd make this easy on you (and me)... before I get too many questions to answer.
The Public Domain Treasure Hunters Kit did have a 'section" about finding and using Government Public Domain Content. It's a bit "outdated" and not nearly as extensive as it should have been. (some of the links and sites have been moved or go to the dreaded 404 not found)
Yesterday - I spent over 10 hours updating this section. In fact it got so long - I finally pulled out the content and turned it into a separate book. What was about 30 pages is now 90 pages. -
I eventually made the call to pull the government information out entirely and make it a separate product. I'm in the process of updating and reworking the entire kit... but it's a big kit. It will take a while. 🙁
The good news is this - whenever I update the kit - every buyer gets the upgraded version. Cool huh?
- I didn't add a lot of fluffy - "this is what you can do with the content" stuff.
- I didn't add in a bunch of "government guides".
- I didn't make any video showing you what's on all the government sites.
You don't need me to add all the "fluffy" stuff so that I can charge you more. We are all in this together!
- You can download all those guides right off the government websites yourself.
- Once you get on these websites - you don't really need me to teach you how to "surf around".
I did add screen captures of (most) the sites. I wanted you to be able to "easily and quickly" see what each site might have to offer before you spent a bunch of time on sites you don't need.
I also highlighted exactly the content I thought you should check out first. The government is spending lot's of money adding new things every day... on over 100 websites.
I found several new government sites that I think are important for you to know about.
This is not a guide... It's research done for you!
Material produced by the U.S. Federal Government is in the public domain. This includes all material produced by a U.S. Government employee or officer during the course of performing their duties.
Every day... thousands of Federal Government workers toil away creating and compiling information.
You might even be one of those that work for Uncle Sam creating some of the best content available on the internet. The government produces mountains of printed material every year and they pay full time writers to create this stuff for the public.
Some of the greatest educational material in the world is produced by the U.S. government and most of it is free for the taking with a few exceptions to be aware of…
Yes - even the Government will have some control of the content you can use. Not much - I'd say about 98% of all the content is free for you to use anyway you want.
I show you exactly what to watch out for... it's easy.
What could you do with all that great "stuff" that is right at your finger tips???
Of course - I would love to give this stuff away for free... but this girl has got to pay her bills. 🙂
With the 10 hours I put in yesterday and the 17+ hours we originally put into this government public domain research... I think you can see the value!
So... what's it going to cost you? That's always the hard part for me.
How to choose what is fair for both of us...
I'm going to charge a bit over $1 per hour for my time.
That rounds out to $29.95 for you.
