Make Money Online with Digital Products

Ever feel like the universe is trying to tell you something?

I had that feeling this week.  On two separate occasions, I read about the vast benefits of sharing with other people.

Now, of course I share.  We’re all taught to do so.  But sometimes it becomes tempting to not share the really good stuff, the really informative stuff, for fear you’ll lose your spot in this digital world.

Well, my friends, I love you, and I’m glad you’re here with me.  I’m going to share two phenomenal resources that talk about how to make money online, both of which I found this week.

I’ve launched a digital product, and I’m so glad I did it, but there are so many things I’d do differently if I had to do it over again.

I also think that you can never learn too much about a subject.  Despite my “experience” I’ve gained so much from reading these two resources.

Important:  I chose not to use an affiliate link for one of the resources {the other does not have an open affiliate program} because I really wanted this to be a completely selfless act.  This is just me sharing what I’ve read and enjoyed.

5K SALES IN 365 DAYS

I found Mayi Carles just a few weeks ago via the iHN Social Media Pinterest board.

I was hooked. Great content {creative business, bloggy, organization type stuff}, an infectious smile, and all-around bouncy-bubbly-pizzazzy feel that made me even more excited to be in this space that I’m in.

I devoured her content.  I signed up for the newsletter.  I’m so glad I did.

I got the email where she introduced her 5K SALES IN 365 DAYS: A QUIRKY + PRACTICAL GUIDE TO CREATING BEST-SELLING DIGITAL PRODUCTS IN YOUR PAJAMAS eBook.

It only took me about five minutes to decide to take the plunge and purchase it.  I got the early-bird pricing, and let me tell you, this thing is worth it at any price.

Mayi calls it an anti-manual, and that’s one of the things that hooked me.  I don’t like following {all} the rules.  I think many, at least in this digital space, were meant to be broken.

I don’t like doing things the way everyone else does them, just because some really popular person said to do it that way.  I want what works for me, and my folks, whether bright pink is an “acceptable” color choice or not.

Because really, if you’re not happy, why do it?

This guide is full of practical, actionable information you can use to build your digital products, sales page, tribe, and bank account.  It’s not full of a bunch of fluff.  It’s written by a creative, so it really comes from an angle that other creatives can understand.

And, it gives the best advice on pricing I’ve ever read.

Go get it.  Now.

THE BOOTSTRAP VA

I was introduced to Lisa Morosky via this post on Blogging with Amy.  That’s right, it was just Tuesday.

“Get on the “Insider’s List” and get an eBook overview, plus special pricing”, Amy said.  Special pricing off of what price?  How much?

I decided to take the leap of faith and join.  I’m so glad I did.

Last night I purchased {and completely read} The Bootstrap VA: The Go-Getter’s Guide to Becoming a Virtual Assistant, Getting and Keeping Clients, and More!.

The eBook is unbelievably inexpensive for the information you get.  At over 150 pages and just $12.99, it’s a steal.

Right away, I learned something: VAing is not what you think it is.  It encompasses a vast array of services and fields.  It’s not just office work.

Why does this matter?  Because you might have something to offer!

Lisa gives very detailed information on a} whether starting a VA business is for you and b} how to start it, if it is.

One of my favorite parts? She gives you actual examples of each item.  She recommends you do “X,” and she shows you how she does “X” so you’re not left wondering exactly how it should be done.

Absolutely can’t recommend it enough.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCES

We live in an information society.  There’s tons of it out there.

It can be hard to wade through it all.

So tell me, what are your favorite resources for making money with digital products?
