7 Digital Product Ideas to Make an Extra $1000/month

Digital products have been a GAME CHANGER in my business and are one of the ways I make money in my sleep. Here are 7 digital product ideas to help YOU make …

Digital products are such a great way to make passive income, but not enough people are talking about it! Everyone is focused on courses or affiliate marketing – which are also amazing, but we cannot sleep on digital products.

Today, I want to tell you about 7 digital products you can create for ANY type of business that can help you make that extra $1,000 every month.

One of my first videos that took off before I was even paying attention to YouTube was about creating digital products. That one is super old, so I wanted to circle back and do an updated one on the topic!

What is a digital product?

A digital product is a digital good. Someone can purchase it from you, but there is no physical item – the product is delivered to them digitally. Courses technically fit into the digital product definition, but I see the two very differently because the strategy behind each one is very different!

I’ve been selling digital products since my business was a thing, ranging from Lightroom presets to workbooks to digital planners. It has been a game changer for the income that I make, the passive income that I make, and the way I live my life. That’s why I’m so passionate about teaching these things – passive income literally changed my life.

Before we get into the ideas, I created a 100% COMPLETELY FREE blueprint for you about digital products. It’s a full workbook that addresses the 5 things you need to do to create and sell a digital product that actually makes you money. You can grab it below!

7 Digital Product Ideas to Make an Extra $1,000/Month

1. Workbooks!

You can absolutely create and sell workbooks on autopilot. If you have a proven strategy, system, or process that you can put into workbook form, you can create it using Canva, Photoshop, InDesign, or even Google Docs. Put it up for sale on Etsy, your website, or another selling platform, and viola!

2. E-Books

E-book are different than workbooks because E-books are meant to be more passively consumed, while workbooks are meant to be action-based. E-books are also a great way to get information out in the world and get paid for it!

E-Books are my least favorite of everything I'm going to mention. It’s really hard to get someone to actually read an E-book. One of the biggest goals of digital products is to get someone to come back and do other things with you. If you get them to read an E-book and then you also want them to purchase a workbook, it may be difficult to do that. Be cautious and make sure you can get your buyer to read the entire book!

3. Journals, Planners, and Notebooks

We’ll batch all of those together! I sell a digital planner that you use on Goodnotes or another note taking software. It works exactly the same as a paper planner, but on a tablet! In the last year, my digital planner has made me over $40,000. That’s without me really having to do much! I have a few YouTube videos promoting it and a few Pinterest ads to it, but 

I realized I wanted to develop a planner that is perfect for the business owner – not just for “everybody.” Selling a journal, planner, or notebook that is perfect for your ideal customer is where it’s at when it comes to digital products!

4. Templates for Systems or Programs

I have sold Trello templates, ClickUp templates, and all kinds of others. You can sell WordPress themes, SquareSpace themes, Canva templates… the list is endless. Selling templates or elements for specific systems is a great digital product idea!

5. Printables

Printables can encompass almost anything! A to-do list, a checklist, worksheets for homeschooling, baby shower invitations. Any kind of printable can be sold as a digital product!

6. Downloadable Art or Supplies

This can be an actual, downloadable piece of art that people can print and hang. It could also be something totally digital, like a phone or computer background. You can sell anything you can download! Fonts and stock photos also fall into this category.

7. Swipe Files

You typically find swipe files in the B2B (business-to-business) world. If I have a secret or a template and I want you to be able to use that exact template, I could create a swipe file that people can copy and use for their own purposes.

Swipe files can include emails that are written for you, copywriting a template for a sales page, and contracts. My friend Christina is an attorney, and she’s created contract templates people can purchase and use for their creative businesses. You can find those on her website, the Contract Shop.
