Digital products are a great way to have a new passive income stream without the worry of holding inventory or shipping products. You only need to create them once and sell them as many times as you want!

What are digital products?

Digital items are assets or media that can be stored electronically and sold online. They are usually purchased as downloadable content. Digital products can be PDFs, video files, music, images, templates, fonts, eBooks and many more!

5 Digital Products to Sell

1) Canva Templates

Canva is a popular online design app, used by many businesses to create and sell beautiful designs.

There are many templates you can create with Canva. Here are only a few examples.

  • Social Media Graphics: Instagram posts, stories, reels.
  • Blog Graphics
  • eBooks
  • Infographics
  • Resumes
  • Posters and Flyers
  • Greeting cards

And the best part is that Canva already comes with many graphics. However, do NOT just sell an existing template, you need to create your own.

2) eBooks

Ok, I know it seems scary and you may be wondering, how can I create my own eBook? What will I write about?

Well, It does not need to be something complicated. Think about your career. Is there a specific topic you are expert in? Or maybe a hobby you can help others learn and master? You can even write down your family recipes!

You can create an eBook of almost anything. Here are some examples:

  • Fitness Courses
  • Do it yourself (DIY) book
  • Recipe Books
  • Cook Books
  • Blogger Guides
  • Social Media Guides
  • Manuals
  • Self-Help

Does this sound interesting? You can first try brainstorming topics you are good at. Then you can do a research on the market to check the demand and the competition for those topics, and the price they are selling their eBooks at.

3) Stock Photography or Videos

Another great passive income could be from selling images or videos. There are many businesses who need stock video or images for their designs or advertisement campaigns. The best part? You can start selling this digital product even if you don't own a professional camera!. A smartphone with a high quality camera will do the trick too. Just start taking beautiful pictures! You can take pictures of everything, a park, a bus, a street, the sea, mountains, etc. Pictures with people realizing simple actions such as drinking coffee, walking, can be useful too. Β However, remember to check the legal requirements for this type of pictures, since you cannot sell a picture with someone on it without their permission, specially if their face is recognizable.

You can do a market research on the types of images or videos that are in demand.

4) Document Template

Do you know how to create the perfect CV that will make you stand out? Then why not share it with the rest of the world? You can create and sell templates such as:

  • CV
