This is my favorite digital product to create and sell. It’s one of the best selling digital products online. While some believe that an eBook should be over a hundred pages, others don’t.
I use to think that’s an eBook should be nothing less than a hundred pages. Now I know that the length of an EBook doesn’t matter so long it covers all necessary information. In fact, many self publishing eBooks selling online are only about 20-60 pages.
If you have a business (online or offline) that has attained success for a couple of years – This could be an option for you. In your eBook, you can write about how your business have attained that much success , what your audience should focus on if they are going to try out same business, and other necessary stuffs to make it easy for them.
Creating an eBook is super easy; there are couple of apps that can help you out creating one like Designrr, Canva and many more.

- ONLINE COURSES
This is very common and popular for bloggers.
Similar to eBook – difference is that an eBook is intended to enlighten the reader while an e-course is a learning process. The author has probably been in your position before and in one way or the other, they are no more there.
These kinds of people write the best courses and everything therein is informative and what you can practically do. Guess that’s why many bloggers prefer to publish an e-course instead of an eBook.
Teachable can save you some stress putting your course together. Online courses are great idea for many because they are within reach and convenient for schedule.
If you need help with your Pinterest strategy to boost your monthly views and click through rate, sign up for this course. It’s excellently informative. Trust me.
You can make and sell any course as long as it provides value to your audience. Video course especially provide means for most people to digest the information you are conveying.
A workflow is a path that describes how tasks/activities are done. An outline of process you have undergone to solve challenges for a niche audience. Not everyone likes to stress themselves to start certain tasks themselves.
These people can pay some amount to go through shortcut. This amount certainly depends on the kind of tasks.

Although there are many options and places to get free stock photos like Canva, Pixabay, etc.

Depending on the niche, you may need to do some adventures especially if you choose travel niche.
How to sell your photos
It’s a great idea to focus on a/some particular niche. A travel blogger should be specific in taking pictures related to the niche. Selling your photos can be in bundle or individually or can even be subscription based.
These photos can be sold on a couple of websites like your website, Etsy, Creative market and many more.

- SWIPE FILES
Many business owners and entrepreneurs are always busy and don’t have time to get contents to their clients, so they need swipe files.
Swipe files are templates usually in PDF format that contain an effective formula like sales page copy or email copy. These formulas are habitually tested, viable and proven. This is very popular for email marketers and copywriters.
If you are someone who likes to do planning and take things step by step, this is your match.
A workbook usually contains a step by step fill-in blank that helps achieve a desired self outcome. A workbook doesn’t necessarily need you to fill so many pages while creating one.
For example, this self-care tool kit is a workbook that comprises how to create effective self care practice. It takes you through 8 dimensions of wellness (Physical, mental, emotional, spiritual etc.)
Also, this Ultimate Bloggers bundle is a great workbook choice for bloggers and content creators. In this workbook, you can jot your ideas, what you are working on, your goal space, things to remember and more.
