Are you ready to level up your online business game and start making some serious money? Of course you are—that’s why you’re here! So what is a digital product, and why should all creators sell at least one?

At Beacons, we have been working with creators for years to understand how they monetize their content creation and build businesses. In this time we've seen that selling digital products is quickly growing trend for content creators that is actually a smart and sustainable business strategy.

We’re going to cover the top digital products for each creator niche, with best practice examples for each, so that by the end of this guide you feel confident in the digital products that are a perfect fit for your brand (and you can set them up in your creator store today).

What is a digital product and why should every creator sell one?

Digital products are a great option for creators to build a new income stream quickly because these are products that you can upload to a creator store in minutes and fans can download immediately.

Simply put, selling digital products online is one of the easiest and quickest ways to monetize your content by selling directly to your fans.

In fact, there are huge benefits of selling digital products instead of physical products:

  • Digital products are easier and cheaper to produce and distribute—they’re nearly infinitely scalable. There are no packaging, fulfillment, or shipping costs to worry about!
  • Digital products are immediately accessible. Nothing is faster than an immediate digital download, so you can provide instant gratification to your buyers.
  • Digital products often align with creators’ skillsets in the digital realm. For example, creators by definition are skilled at creating digital content, which often translates to eBooks, images, videos, music, templates, or guides that they can sell.

There are lots of options for digital products to sell. But don’t worry about feeling stuck or overwhelmed.

Grab a cup of coffee and get comfortable—let’s dive into the world of digital product creation and figure out which products are right for you!
