How To Sell Digital Products Online?

There are two distinct methods with which you could sell digital goods online.

1. Selling Individually

Selling digital products individually by creating an online shop with a payment option is a respectable technique but efforts to be taken to get the profitable sales. For this, you have to figure out the sales process by consolidating requisites in one place.

Begin the selling process

To start the sale process,

* Create a sales page by adding relevant headline and some text to inspire the visitors. Include attractive graphics and references to it.

* After finish creating the sales page, choose any of the following services to deliver your digital product and to collect payment.

1. Payloadz

2. Sellfy

3. E-junkie

4. Pulleyapp

* Add “Buy now” button on your sales page by getting a code from the selected service to redirect the buyers to know your payment options and to deliver the product. Once you’ve done creating the landing page, promote your digital products to reach a wider audience.

Best Ways To Promote Your Digital Products

To reach maximum visitors, it is good to promote your digital product through various ways. If no one knows about your online product, then who’ll buy it?

So, the interested audience requires to be targeted in digital product selling, and your marketing efforts will need to attract them as they unaware of your products. Some worthy places to promote your product are

Social Networks

Build profile on various social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+, interact with others and make them follow you by giving exact reasons. Form a community and don’t use the social platforms purely for marketing.

Facebook and PPC Advertising

With Facebook advertising, you could reach the interested people in your offering. Having an optimized launch campaign and doing keyword research would let you get quality visitors through PPC advertising.

Industry-relevant websites

As the bloggers and marketers are approaching the marketplace to buy advertisements, you can use Buysellads to advertise your ads to fascinate more visitors. It improves your branding and credibility in selling the digital products.

Reach Relevant Blogs

If your digital product exactly matches with the audience of some particular blogs, you may reach them to get featured through their blog post. In another way, send a free copy of your digital product to the blog owners to try and ask them to review about the same to capture the attention of like-minded people.

Get Affiliates

Your digital product with enough details could be enlisted in the affiliate network websites like Clickbank and let the affiliates do marketing for your product.

Build Brand Name

If you deeply look into the successful digital products, they have a brand name behind them. So it is important to create trust and authority within the industry to make lucrative sales of your digital goods. The more you gain reliability for your worthy product, the more buyers you’ll get.

2. Using Marketplaces

An alternative method of selling digital downloads is to enlist them in Envato’s sites. As these marketplaces have the broad base of daily visiting consumers, you don’t have to take much effort to market your product.

It is the primary benefit of using the marketplace to sell digital products, and you could reach a wider audience here. But the major downside of using these markets is that you need to give up a significant part of your income to them.

Both methods have its own pros and cons and it is virtuous to choose the best suitable method to sell your digital products conveniently.


Creating own digital products and selling them on the internet is an ideal online money making opportunity. But effective internet marketing techniques need to be followed to get endless sales. So, before launching your digital product, it would be good to set up some healthy marketing methods to turn it as a profitable product.

Even if you’re not a talented developer of digital goods, there are so many resources on the internet which would help you to shape your skills. As I decided to get into the Affiliate marketing deeply, I am focusing my learning about digital products and this pushed me to write this blog post.

    Contrary to your point #3 (3. Less competition with good profit.), this is a highly competitive field and the profit is really big.

    I have been tasting some success as an infopreneur and I immensely like this internet business. I develop my own info products and sell individually and I also buy and sell info products. I join as an affiliate of lucrative affiliate network sites and sell info products for up to 100% commission.

    Nirmala has covered most of the points to become an infopreneur. Some of the resources she mentioned are not known to majority of the newbie online entrepreneurs. You should thank for that.

    The money in this field is very good but one must try it out for a few years to earn the experience without which, it is not possible to see the first American dollar.
