How To Earn Income with Digital Products and Services

blog Aug 01, 2023


I'm thrilled to have you back for today's episode because we're diving into an exciting topic that can truly transform your financial situation – creating digital products and services. Whether you're looking for supplemental income, starting a side business, or anything in between, digital products can be a game-changer.

In this episode, I'll introduce you to three types of digital products and services: online courses and workshops, online coaching and memberships, and books and downloads. Let's explore each of these at a high level.

  1. Online Courses and Workshops: Online courses are an excellent way to share your expertise with a broader audience. You can package your knowledge into video lessons or downloadable content and host them on platforms like Teachable or Udemy. You have the creative freedom to choose your niche, set prices, and offer lifetime access to your content. Workshops, on the other hand, are shorter, more interactive experiences, perfect for delivering specialized training or guidance. Online courses and workshops offer flexibility and can generate passive income.

  2. Online Coaching and Memberships: If you have a particular skill or talent, such as life coaching, fitness training, or language tutoring, online coaching can be a rewarding option. You can connect with clients globally using video conferencing tools. Membership sites, a variation of online coaching, offer recurring revenue by providing fresh content, tools, or coaching each month. They create ongoing value for members and steady income for you.

  3. Books and Downloads: Self-publishing on platforms like Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing opens the door to becoming a published author. You can write fiction, non-fiction, how-to guides, and more, reaching a vast audience. Additionally, you can create downloadable resources like checklists and templates to sell on marketplaces like Etsy or Amazon. These simple yet valuable products can generate income without much effort.

My personal journey into the world of digital products began with creating and selling online courses. Leaving my corporate job in 2016, my husband and I embarked on an RV journey, which led me to start Remote Work School. It has since become my full-time business and a fulfilling endeavor.

Online coaching and memberships offer a fantastic opportunity to connect with people and have a direct impact on their journeys. Membership sites, in particular, provide recurring revenue, making them an attractive option for many entrepreneurs.

If you've ever dreamt of becoming a published author, self-publishing is more accessible than ever. Whether it's fiction or non-fiction, you can share your knowledge and creativity through e-books. Additionally, downloadable resources are popular among customers seeking quick and valuable tools.

To get started with your digital products and services, identify your area of expertise and your target audience. Consider what problems you can solve for them and if there are any additional skills you need to acquire. And remember, don't wait for perfection – start creating and iterate based on feedback from your customers.

Throughout this month, I'll be exploring each of these digital product types in more detail and featuring experts who have achieved success with them. So stay tuned for inspiring stories and practical tips.

If you're unsure where to start, I offer coaching at Remote Work School to help you flesh out your ideas and turn them into reality. You can find a link to my free training in the show notes or visit Remote Work School to join.

Thank you for joining me today, and I look forward to sharing more with you in the upcoming episodes. Remember, creating digital products and services not only generates income but also provides a sense of fulfillment by making a positive impact on others. See you next time!
