digital products to sell

Are you thinking about creating and selling digital products on platforms like Amazon, Etsy, Creative Fabrica or your own website but not sure where to start?

In this post, I'm going to break down a variety of digital products that you can create and sell or use as a lead magnet.

The majority of which can be easily created using Canva.

Social Media Graphics

Social media graphics are a popular digital product that can be created using tools like Canva.

These include custom graphics for social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter, such as Facebook cover photos, Instagram posts and carousels, Pinterest pins and Twitter headers.

These graphics can be designed to match your brand or your customer's brand, and can be sold as a one-time purchase or as part of a package.

A popular way to sell social media graphics is to create them in Canva and sell them as 'Canva templates' so your customer can easily customize them within their own Canva account.

Another idea is to offer to personalize them for your customer and create them in their brand colors along with their logo or website url to save them time doing it themselves.

Infographics

Infographics are a great way to present information in a visual and easy-to-understand format.

You can use Canva or other design tools to create infographics on any topic, from data visualization to how-to guides.

These can be sold to businesses or individuals looking for a way to present information in a more engaging format.

Printables

Printables are digital products that can be printed out by the customer and are hugely popular.

These can include things like planner pages, calendars, and checklists created using tools like Canva or Microsoft Office.

These can be sold as a one-time purchase or as part of a subscription package.

Just enter 'printables' into Google and be amazed at the number of results!

Reports and E-books and E-book Covers

Reports and e-books are popular digital products, and you can use Canva or Microsoft Office to create custom covers for them.

Reports and e-books themselves can be written and formatted using tools like Google Docs or Microsoft Word.

These can be sold as a single purchase or as part of a series.

You can also sell editable rights to the reports or e-books so that your customer can edit them and sell them as their own (this is known as private label rights (plr)).

Logos, SVGs and Other Graphics

Logos are another popular digital product that can be created using Canva or other design tools.

These can be sold to businesses or individuals looking for a new logo for their brand.

And why stop at just logos, creating SVGs and other graphics are becoming more and more popular.

With time being valuable, it's often cheaper to buy than create your own so jump on that opportunity!

Workbooks

Workbooks are similar to e-books, but they are usually more interactive and include things like exercises and quizzes.

You can create workbooks using Canva or Google Docs and Sheets.

These can be sold as a single purchase or as part of a course.

Again, you can also sell these with plr rights so that other business owners can use them for their business and use them under their own brand.

Templates

Templates are pre-designed documents or spreadsheets that can be used by the customer.

These can include things like budget templates, invoice templates, and business plan templates created using tools like Google Docs and Sheets, or Microsoft Office.

These can be sold as a one-time purchase or as part of a subscription package.

Checklists

Checklists can be created using tools like Canva, Google Docs and Sheets, and can be used for things like project management or personal organization.

These can be sold as a one-time purchase or as part of a subscription package.

Presentations

Presentations can be created using PowerPoint or Google Slides and can be used for things like business meetings or online courses.

These can be sold as a single purchase or as part of a course.

Spreadsheets

Spreadsheets can be created using Excel or Google Sheets and can be used to create things like budget sheets, financial projections, and data analysis.

These can be sold as a one-time purchase or as part of a subscription package.

Digital Planners

Digital planners are a great way to organize your schedule, to-do list, and notes in one place.

These can be created using tools like Canva or Microsoft Office, and can be sold as a one-time purchase or as part of a subscription package.

Digital planners can include things like daily, weekly or monthly calendars, task lists, and notes pages.

They also offer the advantage of being able to customize the layout and design.

You can create them for GoodNotes (Apple only but Windows version is coming soon) OneNote, NoteShelf, Notability or Xodo.

Wall Art

Wall art is another popular digital product that can be created using tools like Canva, Adobe Illustrator or Procreate.

These can include things like digital prints, digital paintings, and digital drawings that can be downloaded and printed by the customer.

These can be sold as one-time purchase, and can be a great way to add a personal touch to a room.

Additionally, digital wall art can be created in different sizes and styles to cater to different preferences and interior designs.

Please be aware that the resolution should be high (300dpi) and that Canva's resolution is usually less than this.

These are just a few examples of the types of digital products that you can create and sell.

The possibilities are endless as you can create each type for hundreds of different markets, so don't be afraid to get creative and try out different ideas.

Recommended Resources

Canva

Canva

Canva is a fantastic tool for creating digital products, due to its simplicity and extensive design library. Its user-friendly interface allows even beginners to produce professional-quality designs. With a multitude of templates and a drag-and-drop feature, creating digital products is streamlined and efficient. From seasoned designers to beginners, Canva makes the design process easy and efficient.

Font Banner - Free Fonts

Creative Fabrica

They have thousands of different fonts and graphics as well as templates to use to create your digital products. There is also a section for print on demand graphics. I LOVE this site!

Remember that the key to successful sales on Etsy and other platforms is to create products that are high-quality, unique, and in demand.

Good luck!

digital product Faqs

Can I use any images, fonts, or other assets in my digital products, or do I need to be aware of copyright issues?

Yes! With Canva you can't sell the templates or graphics as is. You need to create a unique design using different elements then sell the 'flattened design so that customers can't get access to the individual elements, unless selling as  a Canva template. ALWAYS CHECK THE T&C's on each platform to make sure of your rights.

What is the significance of resolution (like 300dpi) in digital products, and how can I ensure my products meet this standard?

When selling things like Wall Art the quality needs to be 300 dpi and often Canva produces graphics at a lower dpi. You can increase the dpi of any graphic using https://convert.town/image-dpi

Can I sell these digital products on my own website? If so, how can I set that up?

Yes, you can sell your digital products on your website. For WordPress websites there is WooCommerce which is a free plugin and you can allow WooCommerce to deliver the files after purchase.

How can I protect my digital products from being used without my permission or without proper payment?

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do and often it's wasted energy to focus on this aspect rather than finding paying customers. If you are using WooCommerce then customers will only get the files after they pay.

How much time does it typically take to create and manage digital products for sale?

I'm going to be honest. It takes A LOT more time than you think it will because everything is new for you. It takes time to create systems that streamline your processes and that's okay. Be at peace with this and the more energy you put into it, with an open mind to learn and adapt as you go, the more you'll get out of it. As you build your mailing list of customers, you can release new products to your list and get almost instant sales, while when starting off you need to build up that list so sales may be slow to start with.
