Selling Digital Products Online Easily

If you want to start your own online business, there are many great opportunities that you can go into. If you’ve already started your own online business but the results that you are getting aren’t too good, and you’re looking for a new way to make money without doing any kind of manual labor… then maybe you should sell digital products.

What is a “digital product”? Well, it’s exactly how it sounds. It’s simply a downloadable product that can be delivered via email or immediately downloaded after someone orders from you. Some of the best forms of digital products are: ebooks, MP3’s, videos, and membership sites. It can really be a good business decision, especially if you’re looking for an easier way to make money online.

Now one form of digital products that I associate myself with are ebooks. An ebook is simply an electronic book – it can be read, opened, closed, etc all on your computer. Perhaps lately the most familiar forms of ebooks that you see on TV are the ebooks for the Amazon Kindle.

There are many online business owners who are earning thousands of dollars every month simply with Kindle – and we’re not even talking about their website sales here. To create a really effective and good ebook, you have to deliver value. Now typically the ebooks that are of good quality are those that are at least 100 pages or more.

Now you should know that quantity doesn’t necessarily mean quality. I’ve seen 10 page ebooks that were better than 100 page ebooks. But typically (most often)… the ebooks that sell well and get the least amount of refunds are those that are over 100 pages. So keep this in mind.

To create your first ebook, you can simply go into Microsoft Word and type up your ebook there. To convert it into PDF format, you can simply go to a site called “pdfonline”, and have it immediately converted into an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. It’s fast, free, and easy to do this.

Once you’ve created your book, it’s time to set a price for it. Generally the typical cost of an ebook sells for $19. There are some people online though who like to sell $7 products. I personally think you can’t earn a nice living off of $7 products. In fact, let’s do some quick math here.

To make $100 with a $19 ebook, you would need to roughly make 4 sales to achieve this goal. If you wanted to make the same $100 with a $7 product… you would need to make 15 sales. You should know that it’s VERY easy to sell a $19 product online – so selling something for $7 is putting yourself on a cliff hanger.

Digital products are cool and are a great business model. You can wake up and see sales in your inbox without doing a thing. The product would be instantly delivered. I’m sure the sound of this is appealing, and you should know that you can make it into a reality.

Good luck with selling digital products today.

My Digital Products Were Being Ripped Off!

Rarely, do I look through my website statistics.  But, one day, I just happened to stop and check them out on my web host. It was then that I noticed something strange.  There were keywords listed in the stats that should not have been there. So I plugged the keywords into Google (TM).  That was when it hit me like a Mac truck … someone had been ripping off my digital products.

The funny thing is … most of the clients I advise, who ask me about building websites, almost always begin by asking me about people stealing their digital products.  As if stealing digitally is that much easier than stealing real products?  Or maybe they just figure all digital products are easily stolen.

I always advise them NOT to worry about it.  In fact, I have always heard … and I totally agree with this belief: It’s better to have a product that people WANT to steal. In other words … you want to have people who want your products badly enough that they want to try and steal them.  That means that you have a kick butt product.  You have a product that is worth something to your market. And that … my friend … says A LOT about your product.

Plus, the fact is, most digital products are NOT easily steal-able.   Most online business owners I have met agree that digital theft is not really an issue to be that concerned about.  It is a problem to understand, but it should NOT keep you from developing, or offering, your materials.

So … even though I quickly changed the download page that was being pinched with the help of Google, I am still proud to say … that my digital products were being ripped off. I will hold my head high … at least for now.  Until I find out that no-one wants my stuff anymore.  And then I will rewrite it, so that someone … somewhere is trying to steal my digital products again.

And one other point I would like to mention …

If you have digital products that people love SO MUCH, that they are willing to steal them, you WILL be able to develop more profit streams from those items on the ‘back end’. So, whether it’s an initial purchase, or it’s back-end product sales … like video DVD’s, audio CD’s, hard-copy books, other paraphernalia, autobiographies, etc … you have got to see the bigger picture, and not just the immediate problem of digital theft.

I understand that you cannot simply ignore online theft all the time … but if your product is good enough, and you have back end offers inside your product as well, then you are going to end up with more sales anyhow.  Even if it is from viewers who steal from you in the first place.

Strategic Product Creation-How to Make Digital Products Easily

How to make digital downloadable products easily

There are two types of products that are available – physical and digital. Both these products are a source of abundant information. However, with the advancement in technology and wider accessibility of the Internet, more people today prefer digital products over physical products. Physical books involve shipping cost, storage and material production.

There are various digital downloadable products that are available

· eBook or digital products can easily be saved on the computer, can be delivered or downloaded via Internet, are trouble-free to ship. The profit margins are also higher in. For a good and relevant eBook, its content holds the prime importance.

· Digital photo albums can also created. This was a tiresome task earlier. There are photo album web hosting services that make this task easier. Moreover, they are available for free. One can upload his or her photographs on photo albums. The URL of the same photographs can be sent to friends without any hassles.

· Digital scrapbooks are another product that can be created and downloaded over the Internet. When the designer of the scrapbook has mentioned the sample of the kit in his or her folder, that folder can be named “folder.jpg” and when this is to be viewed in the Windows thumbnail.

Photo-album, Video downloads and magazines are some other products that can be created and downloaded easily with the technological advancement these days. All this together gives digital products an edge over the physical products and answers the reason for their popularity.
