Did you know that a lot of bloggers earn mostly by selling digital products on their blogs?
Yes, it is true, selling digital products online on your blog is a sharp and efficient way to monetize your blog. Nevertheless, it is easy said than done; if you have never sold any products on your blog you may find it hard initially.
Creating a product on your blog – even a very simple one – can bring a good amount of money in contrast to sales and advertising. All the same, your readers trust you. Hence if they enjoy your writing, they will definitely want more from you.
In this post, I am sharing some simple and efficient digital products that you can sell on your blog. Just remember one thing, that some of these may need more time and some amount of initial investment to get you the expected results.
1. Start Selling an E–books:
Airing an e-book on your blog is very much easy (than a regular book) and it doesn’t require any investment or expense; you know what this means?
It means that you can offer a very reasonable product that can be downloaded in seconds! Most of the times, people prefer to download an e-book rather than searching for individual content. Hence the conversion rates are quite great.
There are a lot of e-books available as your competitor but don’t let that disappoint you. You can also try creating an e-book of your blogs and publish it.
2. Make Money by Designing Printables:
If you are a graphic designer, you are really lucky because printables are gaining popularity more and more. These don’t contain much text because they are designed to be printed and used/displayed. Printables could be anything like planner pages, party invitations, a piece of art, kid’s activities, gift tags etc.
Your readers can buy these from your blog for a very small price. Think of something that you will yourself, to make your life creative and surely your audience will also love it. But if you are not a designer, then maybe you can hire a professional designer to create high-quality designs for you, depending on what you and your readers love.
3. Create and Sell Online Training Courses:
An online course can take quite a bit of time to put right and not to mention, not all bloggers are technology geeks. People are ready to learn right from fitness till money making, you can try this.
To start the simplest online course, it can be done like e-books. The content can be spilled into “sessions” and “modules” compared to “chapters” of e-books. Most of the good online courses also offer:
1). Video Content:
courses based on video also have a replica for students who are not so interested in video learning. They can use the replica or transcript for learning purpose.
you can choose to take feedback from the students and also create closed Facebook group where people can discuss and engage.
this is appropriate for courses which are tricky and not simple. Providing certification to the students at the end of the course can be helpful for them.
4. Start Online Consultation:
Since people are reading your blog and liking what you write, you can try out an online consultation. It is normal that after we read something, we want to learn more and have questions around that. If you realize that you are getting questions a lot and your knowledge and opinion are valued, then you are right to start a paid online consultation.
From accounting till fashion stylist, every profession has the potential for the paid online consultation. Recognize the skill that you are best at and go ahead.
5. Sell Your Own Lightroom Preset:
Lightroom presets help you to edit your photo to your liking and then save the exact combination of slider position for future use. Some people on Instagram are offering their own presets for you to download. You can upload your photo to Lightroom and make your photo editing much easier.
If you are getting compliments for your editing, you can think about creating such beautiful presets and selling on your blog. People have a crazy love for uploading their awesome pictures on social media. Hence, they keep looking for easy ways to beautify the pictures.
