Digital Skill, The Most Valuable Asset Needed To Earn Money Online.

There are several ways for anyone to monetize his / her skills and start making money online. One such sure way is by selling digital products online. It is a fulfilling and lucrative business, with zero overhead cost and easily scalable.

We live in an era where you can be on your couch and do your business. All you have to do is trade your passion or skills for money. In digital marketing, it is called monetization..

Earning money online is the desire of anyone who has monetized his or her interest. I emphasized, earning money online is never an easy task. It is one of the most difficult tasks, contrary to the views of most people. You earn good cash online only when people see you as an authority or an expert in a particular subject or topic. This is when you begin to pull in lots of leads into a webpage.

So don’t sell anything, sell things you have authority to sell, and do this with passion.

Entrepreneurship in the internet world is a major work. Anyone who wants to be successful online must recognize that online work is synonymous to the other works out there. Without commitment, dedication and consistency, there is no way to show any success.

The first key to success online is to find a good niche. We recommend you leverage on your interests and passion. After all, there is no need to write on a topic you have little interest in. So, look for what you are good at, or what interests you. Identify and focus on the specific topics, and create your plan in an e-book or video format, as appropriate for the chosen area.

What Is Digital A product?

CREATIVE FABRICA

Before we answer the question of what a digital product is, let me explain to readers what a product is. A product, is anything that has or generates value. You provide value, by solving a problem that’s worth solving. You can also provide benefits that people would not want to miss once they’ve experienced it. With the increase in e-commerce activities, there are now more products sold online than ever before. A digital product is any product you sell online that doesn’t have physical form or substance. It involves electronic devices. These products are usually sold online. It is a conscious effort to monetize your time, talents, knowledge, ideas, effort and passion. Instead of sharing free stuff online, why not make money along these activities? The turning of these abilities into something that provides value is a digital product. Or the monetization of your online abilities. They are intangible products that you can create in the form of writing, audio, or video, and sold in a downloadable form. Digital products could only be accessible via electronic devices, like your smartphones, tablets, PC’s, laptops. They are intangible and don’t have any physical forms, but exist in digital format only. Most digital products also have a physical form. For instance, many people buy e-books in PDF format, then print them on their computers. The product becomes physical, but it started out in digital format.

Reasons for creating a digital product

The following are some reasons for selling digital products;

  • To solve and provide a solution for your audience and to create a bigger impact in the world by reaching more people. To get up every day and enjoy the process of what you are creating.
  • There is no limit to the quantity of products, nor are the products perishability and stock run-outs. There is no need to worry about holding inventory, packaging nor the shipment. These are issues with physical products, not digital products.
  • There is no limit on the quantity of products that one can sell. You can sell whatever quantity anyone orders.
  • Digital products are easy to distribute, significantly more sustainable, can be replicated infinitely. They are also not too difficult to create.
  • There is almost zero barrier cost to entry, except the value you are providing

The following are examples of creative digital products to monetize logos, templates, brand boards, mock-ups, stock photos, graphics, fonts, website themes, and e-books.

In general, the purpose of building a digital product is to solve a problem for your users, while achieving some goal for yourself. Regardless of whatever you might be selling, the key is to always provide value.

Some common digital products

Graphic designers and artist are the most sought after skills in this digital era. These graphic artist are constantly in demand. One of the most digitized industry presently is the graphic artist and design industry.

Courses And Ebooks

Another lucrative digital product to sell are courses or educational materials. This is where someone writes about whatever he/she knows in a book and sells.

If you are fortunate to be writing a blog, or you have blogs already written in the past, then it is to your advantage. Combine 3 – 4 of these articles or blogs relating to the same topic into chapters in a word format. After you are done, you can finally convert them into a PDF file. You can do all this with Google Docs or PDF convertors.

Others also Sync all their blog articles into book and sell. In this fast-paced world where education is never a barrier nor a requirement for knowledge. There are people who have learned more from the minds of other people through courses than they did in their years in the classrooms.

🌈 KDP Premade Interiors The Strategy Of Amazon Best Sellers

PREMADE KDP INTERIORS

INTRODUCTION

Amazon KDP is a big platform which has provided self publishers the opportunity to publish and sell their books for free. You can make money by selling No and Low content books on Amazon, the world’s number one e-commerce store.

You can be smart by leveraging on Amazon market-size to build wealth online, regardless of where you live on the face of the planet. The record must be set straight. It is not every book on KDP that sells. I know of people with several hundreds of books who barely make a sale. The opposite is also true. There are others with a few books, say under 50, who are making huge sales every day.

Making sales on Amazon KDP is dependent on the following factors. The quality of the cover, the interior, number of books and keywords you target. These factors when adhered to with the right keywords are the secret code to success in this lucrative business.

Today, my focus is to help direct anyone who is into KDP low content publishing to platforms where they can download or buy “ready to upload” or premade interiors to enhance their work. This is the strategy the bestsellers adopt. Most bestsellers do not have the luxury of time and do not want to spend several hours designing interiors when they could get them between $1 or $10 dollars. What these people do is, they buy premade interiors and customize them to suit their particular need. They trade their money for high quality interiors or engage freelancers to design interiors for their projects. Engaging the services of freelancers, may be a little expensive. For these people, uploading quality books is the key to success in this competitive business.

With this strategy, they are able, to upload more books than the average guy who has to go through the process of designing from scratch, up to the point of uploading onto the platform.

PLATFORMS THAT HOST AND SELL PREMADE KDP INTERIORS

The following platforms host thousands, if not millions, of already designed interiors. There are interiors for any niche you can think of.

CREATIVE FABRICA

This platform is the biggest of the four, hosting several millions of designs at very low cost. Interiors on creative fabrica are designed by top graphic designers around the world. All interiors go through, a stringent vetting process to ensure designs meet the company standards and also KDP quality standards. Before they are accepted to be displayed in a particular shop. You can buy these interiors as, a single item or sign-up to a subscription package. The subscription package gives access to every design on their platform. This is the package that most bestsellers opt for.

ETSY

Etsy is another great platform to buy already designed interiors. With several interiors covering most niches. The only difference here is that Etsy is a little more expensive than the first one

GUMROAD

Another wonderful place to get premade interior is on Gumroad. An excellent platform for individual creators. The difference between the first two and Gumroad is that on Gumroad, individuals host and sell their designs and there is nothing like vetting the product of an individual creator. Product prices may be less expensive compared to the others, quality of products may also match up to the others.

REASONS WHY BESTSELLERS USE PREMADE INTERIORS

The biggest reason is that you save time and this may help you to upload more books.

SAVE TIME ON LEARNING NEW APPLICATIONS FOR DESIGNING INTERIORS

This is a serious business, it’s not the time to be learning about bleed and no bleed and about margin and the other basic stuff. By the time you get on top of the game, the bestsellers would have uploaded thousands of quality books and occupying the first pages of their niches, living you behind. The moment you understand that this is a real business and start approaching it as such, your sales will begin to see improvement, and you will start making substantial money from Amazon.

SAVE TIME ON CREATING YOUR BOOK INTERIOR

Designing your interiors is more than just learning the technical details of creating a line or inserting an image. You also need to learn how to :

  • Create the book content such as writing prompts, tracking tables, and sketch boxes
  • Decide which font and font pairs to use.
  • Figure out how you’ll present the content
  • Layout the pages, so they look good and are displayed in a logical order
  • Make sure everything is formatted correctly to meet KDP’s manuscript specifications.

Using a premade interior saves you time from doing the above tasks

Most of these premade interiors are editable, and most of these platforms provide buyers with the source files to enable clients to edit and customize them. Depending on the designer, you may either get a PowerPoint file, an InDesign file, or both.

In theory, this should make it easy for you to customize or edit the interior by changing the fonts, text, adding new sections, and deleting existing ones.

I find it’s easier to edit my interiors in PowerPoint. But regardless of whether you directly edit the source file or recreate all or parts of the interior on your own, or even decides to upload them in the state they are, your sales may still go up because of the quality of those interiors. My favourite method is to edit the fonts or the writing prompts. I like to add extra value and extra keywords to the original premade interior.

CONCLUSION

There is absolutely nothing wrong in using already made interiors in your KDP business. Fortunately, this is the trend into competing and making sales on the platform.

Include keywords in your bio, like #digitalmarketing, #contentmarketing, etc. So, one smartest way to go about creating your Twitter bio is to add relevant keywords and hashtags.

   iii. Create Great Content

Content marketing is a deliberate effort at giving away valuable information contents in order to retain a client for possible future sales. Study the interests of your followers and provide them with the content they value.

The most important Twitter marketing lesson is that every interaction with your customer matters.

As a result, you should be ready to provide the best customer experience all the time. Any content you put across on Twitter must be informative, interesting, interactive, personal, and promotional. Creative storytelling should always be a part of your advertising strategies. People like validation and reassurance, so take the time to give them that. Let them know you are there.  Let them know that you care that they are following you, and you appreciate them.  It will only entice more followers.

   e. Share engaging Visuals

Videos do better when it comes to resolving and providing directions on the internet, than written text.
