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.
