What Is a Digital Product?
First, a digital product is not physical. It’s digital media that you consume electronically.
So when next you purchase and play video games online or via PlayStation or Xbox consoles, you’re consuming a digital product.
Likewise, when you purchase e-books online or via Amazon’s Kindle, you buying a digital product.
Whenever you buy a design theme for your website, Shopify or WooCommerce store, and communications’ designs – guess what, you’re buying a digital product.
Hold on. I’m just getting started.
How about all those Apps you purchase on Google Play or Apple stores – they are all digital products.
And all the content you consume online via Netflix, YouTube, Twitch, Vimeo, etc. – you guessed right – they are all digital products.
Now, you’re paying attention.
Digital products permeate our daily human activities more than we would like to admit.
We’ve become so accustomed to them that we don’t even realize how infused these products are to our essential daily functions.
If you’re among the few that have come to this realization, then how do you become a seller (instead of a consumer) of digital products?
The future is digital. And selling digital products is the future.
Types of Digital Products
Now, let’s look at the types (i.e., formats) of digital products you can create for your audience.
While there are many types of digital products out there, and you can decide to create a digital product based on your niche or area of specialty.
Nevertheless, all the digital products on the market fall under these main categories:
A digital audio product is one that you can listen to on your device, such as a mobile phone, laptop, tablet, etc.
For example, an audio podcast, audiobooks, music beats, sound clips/effects, etc., are all examples of digital audio products.
I’m sure you’ve seen creators selling graphic designs such as social media bundles, artistic works, PSD files, T-Shirt designs, etc., online.
These are examples of design-based digital products that you consider creating and selling if you have the requisite design skills.
According to Statistica, available data projects that the online gaming industry will surpass $2.2 trillion in 2021.
Furthermore, statistics show that game consumers downloaded over 15 billion games via app stores in the first quarter of 2020.
For one thing, these numbers are enormous and provide immense opportunities for game creators to deliver content and make a tone of money from an ever-ready consumer base.
When we think of software, we often limit our thoughts to giant mega-corporations such as Microsoft, Apple, Oracle, etc.
However, there are immense opportunities in developing and selling software as a digital product.
If you’re running your ecommerce site on Shopify, when was the last time you purchased an app in the Shopify Store?
Likewise, if you’re running a WooCommerce online store, when was the last time you purchased and downloaded a plugin?
How about that software you purchased to scan your PC and make it run faster?
These are all digital products that you can key into and bring to market for a profitable business operation.
Video content is growing, and consumers prefer it more to text-based content.
In fact, the numbers are so impressive that Social Media Week reports that over 75% of consumers watch online videos every week, and about 55% of consumers watch videos online daily.
So digital products such as tutorials, online courses, how-to guides, etc., are good examples of videos you can create and sell as a digital product.
If you can write and write very well, you can start selling digital products in an instant.
Document templates, blogging, e-books, guides, whitepapers, case studies, reports, etc., are excellent examples of written digital products that one can create and monetize online.
Benefits of Selling Digital Products
Undoubtedly, the popularity and successes of selling digital products have attracted many people to join the trend in search of El Dorado.
To put it another way, selling digital products is akin to the modern-day California Gold Rush.
And to fully understand why millions of people are joining the rush to sell e-books, PDF guides, podcasts, videos, apps, games, and more, you have to consider the many benefits of selling digital products.
It’s no doubt that the benefits of selling digital products outweigh selling physical products.
So let’s take a look at some of the reasons why:
1. They are easy to sell
Did I mention that digital products are much easier to sell than physical products?
Just think about it for a second.
The ease of selling digital products is fascinating, as you don’t need to have a physical product or contact with the buyer.
Instead, once you’ve created your digital product, all you need to do is upload it to the selling platform, execute your marketing action plan, and bring in buyers into your sales funnel for purchase.
2. You have lower overhead costs
Unlike buying inventory and dealing with logistics and fulfillment, digital products are much cheaper to create.
Likewise, digital products require far less overhead costs when compared to their physical counterpart.
When you sell digital products online, you don’t need any physical storage, handling, fulfillment costs, shipping fees, packaging and manufacturing costs, etc.
If you’re running a brick-and-mortar store, you know the impact of cost implications such as store rent, utilities, furniture, amenities, etc., this is not the case with selling digital products.
The digital product ecosystem is all digital and automated with a low barrier to entry and unlimited potential.
3. Impressive profit margins
Digital products are very profitable.
Of course, you have to do your homework, find the right niche, and put in the effort to create a compelling product.
However, it’s still a very profitable business.
With such high-profit margins (over 200%, 300%, 500%, etc., as the case may be), it’s no wonder everyone is rushing in to grab their share of the market.
If you’re a writer, you only need to write your book publish it on Amazon Kindle, or sell it as e-book downloads – that’s it, no dealing with publishers or printers.
4. You have unlimited inventory
The concept of unlimited inventory is quite inconceivable.
But it’s undoubtedly one of the irresistible benefits of selling digital products – you can sell as much as you want without ever running out of stock.
Sounds incredible, right?
You bet it is!
Some digital products are evergreen in that they sell for years on end, providing the creator with a constant revenue stream.
Once you’ve created your digital products, you don’t need to re-create them again.
Depending on the type of digital product and its target audience, you may need to do occasional updates to the product to keep up with trends, but that’s about it.
Your digital products will always be available for purchase.
And all you need to do on your part is to release iterations, revisions, and updates to your customers – if you choose to do so.
5. You can run your business from anywhere
Selling digital products gives you a level of freedom that no other business model can compare.
It’s simply astounding.
You can run your digital products business from any part of the world – there are no physical location restrictions whatsoever.
Having this high level of freedom can fundamentally change your life and how you interact with the world.
You can run your business from anywhere in the world.
How to Create Digital Products
Now, let’s look at how you can start creating digital products and participating in the brave new information merchandising economy.
But first, I want you to know that anyone can create and sell digital products.
Don’t be overwhelmed by the perceived excellence of those you see creating and selling digital products online.
At one point, they were in your shoes, right where you are now searching for information on how to participate in this new marketplace.
The critical thing is to focus, be consistent, and put in the required effort – I can assure you that you will reap the fruits of your effort.
Okay, I’ve gotten the motivational stuff out of the way – let’s dive into the how.
1. Decide on the kind of digital product you want to create
When creating digital products, you don’t just wake up and make something out of the blue.
You must first decide what type of information product you want to create and who your target audience is.
Deciding on the kind of product you want to create is also known as defining and finding your niche.
Yes, find an ecommerce niche is not just relevant when selling physical products.
It’s also highly recommended when creating digital products.
If you’re in the wrong niche, then it will be hard to sell your digital product to that audience.
As a result, you need to find a niche that aligns with your passions, has demand, and is profitable.
For example, the most popular and profitable niches in the digital products industry are technology, health, relationships, and wealth.
Furthermore, you must spend some time conducting the necessary market research and asking your target audience questions to understand what type of information will resonate with them.
Ultimately, you want your final digital product to participate in a niche with high-demand, high-profits, large consumer audience, digital-delivery friendly, and easy to create.
2. Research a winning product
Just as with finding the right niche for your digital product, you also need to bring a winning digital product to market, which requires some research.
The best-selling products in the world, whether physical or digital, are those products that solve problems and address real-life situations.
So it would be best if you carried out extensive research to determine your target audience’s pain points that need to be solved.
Here, you want to find out your potential audience’s biggest challenges, the kind of changes people would love to see in their lives, and the circumstances that make people seek answers in your chosen niche.
As I stated earlier, people want products (whether physical or digital) that provide solutions to their problems and challenges.
Therefore, your digital product will only win your target audience’s hearts and minds if it has the core mission of solving their issues.
It would help if you employed standard product research tactics here to model successful products.
Don’t hesitate to take advantage of online communities and forums, ask questions, and seek out the information necessary to find the winning digital product idea for your target audience.
3. Creating your final digital product
As we mentioned earlier, there are about six different types (i.e., formats) of digital products.
And they are audio, design, games, software, video, and written digital products.
The majority of all digital products fall under these six different categories.
So after you’ve decided on the kind of digital product and who your target niche is, your next step is to determine the type of digital product (i.e., format) you’ll create for that product idea and target niche.
Is it going a written (i.e., report, guide, checklist, etc.) document? Or will you dive deep and create video content (tutorial, course, etc.)?
How about a piece of software (i.e., plugin, apps) that enable your target audience to become a better version of themselves?
No matter what type of digital product (i.e., format) you’ll be creating, the following methods are available for you to make them:
A. Do-It-Yourself (DIY)
If your digital product will be in a written format and you have a pro’s writing skills, you can take the DIY approach and create the product yourself.
Among all the different types of digital products mentioned earlier – written products are the easiest to create.
If you have good writing skills (which you can acquire relatively quickly if you currently don’t), you can decide to write reports, e-books, and courses that address your target audience’s pain points.
Likewise, you can decide to create audio products, as they are also easy to make.
With the right tools and voice, you can create guided meditations, podcasts, audio courses, and music.
How about video digital products? Yes, you can.
Although slightly more complicated than written or audio products, you can create slideshows, presentations, video courses, webinars, and much more with the right tools.
Furthermore, you can take advantage of outsourcing to find affordable video editing talents to bring life to your video digital product.
If you do not have the time and resources to create your digital product, you can outsource it to a third-party.
That third-party can be a company or an individual (i.e., a freelancer) – it all depends on your budget.
So, yes, you can pay someone to create digital content for you.
Doing so will cost you money, but it will save you time and effort – plus the added advantage of using the expert knowledge of the resource you’re hiring.
If you don’t have coding skills and want to deliver an app for your target audience, then outsourcing will be an excellent way to creating such a digital product.
After all, you can utilize online marketplaces such as Upwork, Fiverr, Guru, etc., to find and hire the required talent you need for your digital product – no matter the type.
C. Partnerships & Joint Venture
Forming partnerships and a joint venture is another method of creating your digital products.
Why reinvent the wheel?
Are experts in your niche or at creating the type of digital product you can sell?
If so, you can reduce your risk by forming partnerships or a joint venture with them.
Partnerships and joint ventures are more suitable for larger digital product creation projects.
Such large products includes (but not limited to) large complex Apps (i.e., for mobile phones)
Likewise, certain Plugins products (i.e., for online platforms – WooCommerce, Shopify, Salesforce, etc.) can be quite large.
Not only will working in a partnership or joint venture save you money, but it also gives you the advantage of working with a third-party that has the necessary industry expertise that you don’t.
How to Sell Digital Products Online
Regardless of the type of digital product you want to sell, having the right selling platform is essential to success.
As such, you need to find a platform with a vast audience to sell it.
One that is very easy to use and can push your products to your target audience much faster.
Most importantly, the right platform that offers you the right tools to nurture and grow your digital products ecommerce business.
Such tools include (but are not limited to) subscription management, digital marketing, digital rights management (DRM), payment processing, etc.
Here are some of the platforms where you can sell your digital products.
Amazon is the 800-pound gorilla in all things – including digital products.
Comparatively, the Amazon platform is great for content creators to sell their products.
I’m sure you’ve heard of Kindle – their e-reader device for reading content?
Amazon Kindle is the most popular and owned e-reader (over 80% market share) among the over 90 million e-reader users in the U.S.
As a digital product entrepreneur, you have an audience of over 70 million people by publishing your written digital product on Amazon Kindle alone!
SendOwl is another platform that enables you to sell anything digital – e-books, software code, templates, website/graphic themes, videos, etc.
The platform encourages its users to focus on doing what they do best – i.e., create content while SendOwl handles the rest.
Furthermore, SendOwl’s drip functionality allows you to release your digital product over some time.
And other bundled features such as discount codes, upsells (during checkout and after payment completion), promotional code, and affiliate system provides the necessary ecommerce support to be successful.
Clickbank is another popular online marketplace for selling digital products.
Most content creators and affiliate marketers use the Clickbank platform to buy and sell digital products globally.
Yes, it’s an affiliate and an ecommerce marketplace.
So this means that you put up your digital product on the platform for sale, offer the right incentive and expose your digital product to millions of affiliates around the world who will promote it for a commission.
Click has been in business since 1998, thus making it the oldest marketplace for digital products in the world.
Gumroad is more than an online marketplace – it extends the functionality of a typical marketplace by allowing you to build your custom landing pages for your digital products.
Similarly, you’re able to build and grow your target audience using Gumroad’s tools engagement tools and features.

Also, Gumroad gives you the flexibility to accept payments in different currencies such as U.S. Dollars, British Pounds, Japanese Yen, and much more.
WooCommerce is one of the top ecommerce platforms in the world.
As a matter of fact, over 30% of ecommerce websites run on WooCommerce.
However, it may interest you to know that WooCommerce is an open-source ecommerce plugin for WordPress.
Given its popularity and wide-acceptance, you’ll come to think it’s standalone software.
But it’s a plugin – a complex and advanced one, for that matter.
With WooCommerce, you can sell digital products globally with no restriction since it’s an open-source platform – you can configure it as you see fit.
Also, if you have physical products that compliment your digital products, then the more reason to consider WooCommerce since it allows you to sell both digital and physical products.
How much does it cost? Nothing.
WooCommerce as a plugin is free, and WordPress as a CMS (content management system) is also free.
The WordPress ecosystem is one of plugin, theme, and extensions.
So when working with WooCommerce, you’ll need to get the necessary plugins (e.g., payment processing, security, etc.) to get things to work just as you want them.
Luckily, most of the plugins are free, and ones with advanced/premium features are available at a reasonable subscription or one-time fee.
