Despite everything you may have heard, I will give you 7 compelling reasons why you must create your own digital products if you want to be successful online…
What are digital products?
Digital products are any products or services that can be provided to a customer in an electronic format. These include e-books, videos, audio files and software.
Being a product creator gives you credibility within your niche.
People will view you as an expert or authority figure. Even if you don’t feel like an expert now, you’ll gain a huge amount of knowledge during the product creation process.
Creating an information product, about a really useful topic, will help to focus your mind. You’ll learn lots of great information as you’re carrying out research.
There’s no limit to how many copies you can sell.
You make the product once and you can sell it as many times as you like. There are no further costs involved. You can sell it once, a hundred times or a million times.
You will make money on autopilot.
Your digital product has the potential to earn you money even as you sleep, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There’s no further effort required.
The whole sales process becomes automated.
You can make your digital product almost anywhere.
There’s no need for a factory, workshop or office. All you need is a laptop with the right software and you’re good to go.
You can work where you like and when you like.
Imagine, you could make your product at a beach bar in your favorite holiday resort or a lakeside retreat in the mountains.
When you sell your product you get to keep 100% of the cash.
There are no postage and packaging costs. No warehouse or storage fees. It’s pure profit all the way.
The only exceptions are if you use paid traffic sources or if you use affiliates to promote your product.
Talking of affiliates…
You can recruit affiliates to promote your product.
Using affiliates means you don’t need to spend your time and effort promoting the product yourself. Sure, you may have to pay the affiliates a hefty commission but that shouldn’t be a problem. After all, there’s no extra cost or effort on your part. Once you’ve finished making the product you can relax.
Picture an army of affiliates working for you while you’re busy enjoying yourself!
You can make thousands of sales before you’ve even got your own email list.
Talking of email lists…
Creating your own product can help you build multiple email lists.
You can capture leads via an exit pop on your sales page.
Even if someone doesn’t buy your product you have the potential to get email subscribers from the traffic sent by affiliates and this doesn’t even cost you anything.
The Money’s In The ListSaid every marketer who ever lived!
You will also build a list of buying customers. This is a list of customers who you can sell to again and again. Now I hope it’s clear why paying affiliates a big commission makes a lot of sense.
You can also build a list of affiliates. When you create your next product you will have a list of affiliates ready to continue working on your behalf.
Did these 7 reasons convince you?
I sincerely hope so because I genuinely believe it’s the greatest way to become successful as a blogger or digital marketer.
If I have managed to convince you but you don’t really know how to get started don’t worry. I’ve got your back!
