You should always create a merchandise
that solves a problem. The problem has to be serious enough for people to want to pay for a solution to their problem.

by automating a time-consuming task are willing to pay for the saved instant.

3. Find many people
experiencing the problem

Make sure that your keywords are very specifically targeted at those who knowledge the problem you want to solve. Or maybe you may find your target audience in certain communities, such as online forums or self help groups.

Once you have found your target audience, they will only be willing to buy your solution once you prove to them that your solution actually works. The proof could be
social proof (such as testimonials), or it can consist of examples of the results. If you are selling software that removes red eyes from photos, the proof can consist of before and after pictures.
That is really all there is to it. Follow the simple steps as outlined above and your merchandise
