Other than services, you can choose to sell products. The benefits of selling products compared to selling your services is that you’re able to scale it up once you’re making a consistent income. Also, the process of selling products can be automated, providing you with a stream of passive income.
You can either sell physical or digital products. I typically recommend selling digital products because digital products have great margins and are cheap to produce, the first step to selling digital products is to choose a niche.
Niche selection is crucial because you don’t want to end up in niches that are too competitive, Conversely, you don’t want to be involved in niches that are so obscure that there’s no demand. After that you’ll have to create your own digital products or promote them as an affiliate.
To promote digital products as an affiliate, you can visit digital marketplaces such as ClickBank to find offers that you may be interested in promoting. You can create digital products in the form of ebooks, video and audio. You can conduct research online to obtain material for your product, or you could obtain Private Label Rights (PLR) to products and sell them as your own.
