Moms, we are BUSY! Between taking care of our families, working outside the home, and trying to squeeze in a little “me time” whenever possible, who has time to think about selling products online? Believe it or not, there are many digital products you can sell on social media without even leaving your house! Here are 17 ideas for digital products that you can create and sell right from your computer.
eBooks are a great digital product that you can sell on social media. They are easy to produce and can be sold for a variety of prices. You can also offer discounts or bundle deals on your eBooks to encourage sales. I offer my eBook for sale on my website year-round, which creates income for selling over and over again without having to produce a new product.
If you have expertise in a particular subject, you can create an online course and sell it on social media. Online courses can be sold as individual products or bundled with other products, such as eBooks or video courses. I can attest to the success of online courses solely based on how many courses I’ve purchased myself.
PDF Guides offer buyers a convenient and affordable way to get the information they need. Whether you’re an expert on a particular topic or just have a knack for writing, creating PDF guides is a great way to monetize your skills. Plus, with platforms like Gumroad, Fiverr, and Etsy, it’s easy to reach a global audience and start making sales.
Digital printables are files that can be printed out by the buyer. They can be anything from coloring pages to worksheets to printable planners. To sell digital printables, you’ll need a platform like Etsy, Creative Market, or Gumroad. You can also create your own website or blog to sell them. Be sure to include clear instructions for printing and downloading the files.
For example, take a look at a few printables I have on Etsy! I created these printables over the course of one weekend and now they sell on autopilot!
Templates are another type of digital product that can be very helpful for businesses or individuals who want to save time creating their own social media content. You can create templates for a variety of platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. You can even create templates for productivity including Monday and Asana templates, Excel or Google Sheets, and so much more. Templates can be sold individually or in bundles, creating endless opportunities for passive income!
Stock photos are another great digital product that you can sell on social media. If you are a photographer or someone who takes a lot of photos, chances are you have some stock photos that others would find useful. Whether it’s photos of nature scenes, city scenes, or even just people in everyday situations, there is a market for your stock photos!
Lightroom presets are files that allow photographers to quickly and easily edit their photos. They are collections of settings that can be applied to photos in order to change the look and feel. Presets can be sold individually or in bundles, and there is a growing market for them. If you are a photographer and have some lightroom presets that you would like to sell, there are a few platforms you can use, such as Creative Market and Etsy. Or you can market them directly to your social following or website!
Photoshop actions are similar to lightroom presets in that they are files that allow photographers to quickly and easily edit their photos. However, actions are designed to be used in Photoshop, while presets can be used in both Photoshop and Lightroom. This means that the market for Photoshop actions is potentially larger than the market for Lightroom presets.
To sell Photoshop actions, you’ll need a platform like Creative Market or Etsy. You can also create your own website or blog to sell them. Be sure to include clear instructions for using the actions and how to install them.
A WordPress theme is a design for your website. You can use it to make your website look pretty and different from other websites. You can sell a WordPress theme on social media or on websites like Creative Market or Etsy.
Plugins are pieces of software that extend the functionality of existing programs, such as WordPress or Shopify. If you create plugins that are helpful for businesses or individuals who use social media, you can sell them on your social media channels. Plugins can be sold individually or in bundles with other products
There are apps available that make creating your own custom fonts easier than ever. Once you create your unique font, you can market and sell them on websites like Etsy, Creative Market, and your own website. Creating my own font is on my list of digital products to create!
Graphics are a great way to add visual interest to your social media posts and make them more engaging for your followers. There is a huge market for graphics as more and more business owners and marketers are looking for done-for-you graphic solutions. Canva templates are a hot commodity in today’s marketing realm!
Icons are another great digital product that you can sell on social media. If you are a graphic designer or someone who is familiar with Photoshop, chances are you have created icons that others would find useful. Whether it’s website icons, social media icons, or even just simple icons for use in documents or presentations, there is a market for your icons!
Videos are another great digital product that you can sell on social media. You can create videos on a variety of topics, such as how-to guides, product reviews, or even just entertainment videos. If you have a large following on social media, you can charge for access to your videos or offer them for free and include ads.
Audio files are another type of digital product that you can sell on social media. They can be in the form of podcasts, music files, or even just audio recordings of lectures or speeches. You can sell audio files individually or bundle them with other products, such as eBooks or video courses.
Podcasts are becoming more and more popular as busy individuals find value in learning from others while they’re on the go! You can monetize your podcast episodes in the form of sponsorships or paid membership access to your content. Instagram even offers the option now to subscribe to your content to help you monetize your following!
Webinars are a great way to share your knowledge with other people. You can talk to them and answer their questions. You can do this by using a computer or phone. It’s a great way to serve multiple people at once as an alternative to one-on-one coaching opportunities.
With a little creativity and effort, you can start selling digital products on social media without even leaving your house…in your PJs if you want! There are many great ideas for products that you can create and sell right from your computer. So what are you waiting for? Get creative and start producing some great content that people will buy!
