Selling Digital Products On The Internet Today

Want to know what my favorite business model in the world is? It’s easy to guess, I practice it everyday on my computer. It’s selling digital products! These are the type of products that are “digital”, and can be instantly downloaded onto your computer. And once you receive it, you can start using it immediately.

There’s no waiting 7-12 days for shipping, and of course… no shipping fees. And actually when you think about it, I think it’s a better economical choice too. Nowadays, technology is taking off! You can now view movies on demand on your phone, laptop, tablet, pay per view channel, and etc. It’s incredible!

There are a lot of video rental stores going out of business all across the country. It’s so easy to rent a cheap DVD nowadays that all you have to do is go down to your local Walmart and insert a dollar or two to have your DVD dispensed from the DVD rental vending machine. I can’t even remember the last time I rented a DVD from a traditional video rental store.

In my opinion, selling digital items is the only logical way to sell nowadays. People want their products fast, clean, and in good condition… what better way to give them that than an instant digital product that they can download and use 2 minutes after purchasing? It’s a beautiful thing. And you should learn more about it. It can be powerful.

Now some people like to dramatically price their digital products. One form of digital product called an “eBook” is something that many people feel that should be priced around $20 – $30. I don’t agree with this – at least on the frontend sale.

If you have an exclusive product that you want to sell to your backend customers that is full of tremendous value – and it’s something that most have expressed interest in… then a price range around $30 would be logical.

But in my opinion, once you’ve sold out of your good eBooks to your customers, you should create a “physical” product, and sell it for around $500. This would be a tangible product that you would create manuals, CD’s, DVD’s, membership sites, and even an offline newsletter for. $500 a sale isn’t anything to sneeze at, and the beauty of it all is that you can have all of this automated for you also.

Selling digital products is a hot thing right now. Like I said, a lot traditional means of delivering entertainment is transitioning onto the internet, through mobile communications, and via communications that doesn’t require wires. You should definitely take a look into it for your business if you want to automate your life, and even create a new stream of revenue for yourself.

There are many kinds of digital items that you can sell. Simply visit Amazon’s website for ideas. You already see items being sold in the iTunes and Android market. Use your creativity to develop something that can be extremely profitable for you.

Good luck with creating and selling your own digital products.

Digital Download Protection – Can You Protect Digital Products

Today, you find yourself in the world of Internet Marketing
with the perfect niche and digital product to sell. You
have everything ready to go to make your first sale when
you do a Google search and find that your “Thank You” page
has been indexed for the world to access.

Well digital download protection can start by taking a few
simple steps! Steps that can help protect your digital
products from getting hacked or found by a web search. Now
following these steps does not guarantee that some hacker
somewhere will not find your digital product, but it may
stop the “Average Joe” from stumbling upon them.

So how do you protect your digital downloads?

Digital download protection starts with taking a few basic
security steps that take minutes to do without the use of
any special software or programming knowledge.

1) Start by zipping your downloadable products and giving
the file a long file name. Example:0001at74sd276.zip

2) Add an index.html page to the folder in which you keep
your products. This way you can keep most people from
looking in the file and seeing everything that is kept
there.

3) The next step in digital download protection is to take
the above example one step further by adding a redirect
script to your index page. The easiest way to do this is by
adding a Meta refresh tag.

META HTTP_EQUIV=”refresh”content=”0;URL=http://www.yourdomain.com’

Or this php script:

?php
header(“Location: [http://yourdomain.com]”);
?

Just place around each tag above then replace (yourdomain.com)
with your own domain name and place between the header tags on your index.html page.

4) A more time consuming way of digital download protection
is to change your download links more often. This step
limits the chance that your link will be listed on some
forum, message board or shared with friends.

5) Now preventing search engine spiders from reading and
indexing your download pages is another story. Use the
following Meta tag to prevent the link on your “Thank You”
page from being indexed:

META name=”robots” content=”noindex, nofollow”.

Place it on your thank you page between the header tags.

6) The last means of digital download protection is by
using a robots.txt file. Although it may stop your files or
folders from being indexed by search engines, it will not
protect them from thieves and hackers.

Your robots.txt is easily readable, just by typing
yourdomain.com/robots.txt (that is, if you are using one)
into the browser address bar and file names that you are
trying to protect are now viewable. So use great caution
when using a robots.txt or take it one step further by
using dedicated software to secure your “Thank You” page.

How To Really Sell Digital Products On The Internet

There are a number of things that come to mind when trying to make money on the internet. You can sell products that other people have created and they pay you a commission on your sales. These products may be tangible or digital. Tangible products are very easy to envision, just think cameras, car parts, etc. but what about digital products? In fact, what is a digital product anyway?

A digital product, in a nutshell, is anything that you can have instant access to without leaving your computer keyboard. So really, what does that mean? Well think of your big names in the software world for instance; Antivirus products from McAfee, Turbo Tax or Quicken from Intuit, Microsoft Office, Adobe etc. The list goes on and on. Those are just the big players in the software market. For each major player there are thousands of smaller players. Just think of an iPhone or Droid app! Most of those apps are created by individual developers. The see a need, write an app, and hopefully make some money from it. Thousands of developers create the apps that these devices use, not just one big company. They are predominantly individual developers who are just trying to make a little extra money and hoping they hit the jackpot by creating a very popular app.

Software is not the only product that is delivered digitally. Information products are a multi-billion dollar industry in itself. Ebooks, training videos, online lessons for anything you can think of are available instantly. If you are reading this article you’ve already seen thousands of these products. The clever marketers, however, portray their products as something more than digital. The graphic designs they use to portray their products is nothing short of brilliant! If you can see a graphical depiction of the product you are interesting in buying you are 90% more influenced to purchase that product. That’s why marketers mail catalogs to you at great expense to themselves. In fact, catalogs have been around for hundreds of years just for this reason alone. If you can picture the product, there is a much better chance you will buy it!

The fascinating thing with digital products is you cannot really see the product because it is just 1s and 0s on a computer. We see it only on a computer screen as the user interface the author wants us to see. The text you are currently reading is just a visual representation of those 1s and 0s stored on a computer. The same goes for a video presentation. So how then does the marketer create this “catalog” for us to see the product he is selling?

Well that’s what we’ll call “creative license”. Pictures, colors, text and graphics are pooled together with artistic flair to create what the author feels is a pictorial representation of what his or her product is or does. This niche in internet marketing generates millions upon millions in income for those with the skills to perform this type of artistry. Some of these people are truly artists! Most of these people, however, just follow a template or know a few basic skills that allow them to create what appears to be very intricate and time consuming graphics. They layer pictures on top of pictures, add a few effects and cool looking graphics.
