How to sell Digital Items

Updated on March 25, 2009

Digital Goods Marketplace

Surely you have a guide written somewhere on your computer that you think would benefit the world. Maybe it's how to cut the hair of your dog, or how to create a foolproof system to keep your desk clean. Whatever it is, and no matter how wacky it is, there's a good chance someone out there may want it.

Of course, you can go to any old "how-to" site, upload your guide, and forget about it, but why not make a little money in the exchange?

Read on to find out more.

Make Some Money!

Throughout my research, I've come upon Payloadz. I can say from personal experience that this site is perfect for experts and newbies alike, both in it's easy-to-understand uploading interface as well as its user-friendly marketplace. If you want to make a little extra cash selling the things you've made, I can highly suggest this site.  Here's a couple of bonuses that should convince you...

What's The Bonus of Digital Items?

Digital items may not be all the buzz right now, but they're still incredibly important. People may wonder what's so great about them, though? To explain, I'll give an example:

An author wants to publish his book. He thinks it's a great book, but the publisher doesn't, and his book doesn't get published. Instead of just walking away and forgetting about the hard work and effort he put into the project, he can make it an eBook. This means he puts his book together, exports it as a .pdf file, and uploads it to a major site like Amazon or Payloadz.

See the bonus? This doesn't only work for book authors, but also for small garage bands selling their mp3's, computer junkies selling guides to fix your computer, and a wealth of other knowledge, now readily available at your fingertips. For sellers, this means that you can always get your information out there. For buyers, this means that, most of the time, you can find exactly what you're looking for.

Another Bonus...

Another thing I haven't mentioned yet is that re-sell rights for digital items can be purchased for just a couple of dollars.  What does this mean?  It means you can buy the rights and then turn right around and start selling the guide/book/mp3 that you just bought and making 100% pure profit for yourself! 

Although this isn't true for every item, it's true for the majority of items out there.  Just contact the seller and ask them if they want to sell the re-sell rights.  If they agree, you're good to go!  If not, just look for a similar item and you're sure to find what you are looking for.

Yet Another Bonus!!

I might have you bored by now, but I still have one more fabulous thing to share with you about digital items.

In order to sell items at a store, you need to be there, right?  You have to be in the store, help the customer, and check them out.  Not true for digital goods.  For digital items, you can upload it to your store and leave it.  People will search for your item, buy it, and download it and this can all happen while you may be sleeping! 

You make profit without hardly any work, so you're happy.  The site that's selling your items gets traffic for their advertisements, so they're happy.  And (of course) the seller found the item that he/she wants, so they're happy!  It's a win-win-win situation!!

If That Didn't Convince You...

... I don't know what will. It has me hooked and I've been uploading guides I've written already! The only thing that's left for you to do is to sign-up, which you can do at the Payloadz site. Stop waiting and start raking!
