The beauty of digital downloads is that once you've created them you can easily upload them into your online shop, add a description, pricing and photos and they'll be set-up to create you residual passive income for years and years to come.
Of course I always recommend that from time to time you go back to your listing and update it to incorporate new keywords, more up-to-date cover photos and better product titles, but the awesomeness of creating a digital download product that your customer purchases and then prints out or uses online is that once you've done the initial work to design and display it in your store or indeed on your blog, you're FREE from the traditional ailments that usually keep an active seller up working late into the night (e.g. creating new inventory, packaging individual orders and arraging for shipment to your customers chosen address)
In the past i've been that girl up till all hours packaging and processing my physical products to ship out to customers as soon as I can, believe me when your shop starts to go bat sh*t crazy with orders and you're working yourself into a frenzy with duct tape and shipping labels to get each purchase fulfilled, you can bet you'll be wishing you'd gone down the digital download route and let an automated system cater to your customers order instead of you!
Of course if you would still prefer to, you can create awesome physical products and sell them in your Etsy shop aswell however in order to keep your involvement and time low I would always recommend using a service such as a drop-shipping company that will manufacture and ship your design to your customers for you if your wishing to keep your business as passive as possible.
In future videos I will be discussing more and more about drop-shipping and all the essential facts you'll need to know in order to keep selling physical products online relatively low-maintenance.
But for now I just want to introduce you to selling digital downloads online and how fun, easy and profitable it can be as a hustle on the side.
