There is always a lot of talk about what can be done if you lose your job. Expand that scenario to include getting rid of that job so you can make more money and get rid of that boss. Whenever this discussion comes up, even if it is only in your own mind, the questions about how to earn money from home is uppermost in everybody's mind. You can think all you want about finding something to do, but the answer is probably staring you right in the face, right now.
Using the computer to make money is something you have heard about, right? How do people do that? If you figured that out, you could make some money and you would not need that job you lost or got rid of. You can find a lot of things that can make some money, such as taking surveys for a few nickles or clicking on ads for a cent or two at a time. That can pass the time for you while something else comes to mind.

There is something out there that checks all of the boxes for something to do that makes money for you if you work at it. As a matter of fact, this industry has made more millionaires across the globe, in the last two decades, than any other industry. It is the Affiliate Marketing industry. If you are unaware of what this is, an example could be given that will bring it all into focus.
Do you remember The Fuller Brush man who used to go from door to door always having a small brush in his hand when you open the door? This gentleman was an affiliate of The Fuller Brush company. He sold things to which he did not take the title. He simply sold then and kept a commission.
The computer and the Internet have changed that scenario a little bit. There are thousands and thousands of products (just like the many brushes Fuller had). Many of these are digital and downloadable. You may have purchased one of these e-books, yourself. You can find so many of these that talk about the things you are passionate about. Many of these, of course, are durable goods, such as hardcover books, knives, BBQ grills or plants. If you take a look at Amazon, you will find do many things that can all be promoted by you and, when you make a sale, you get a commission! How is that for answering that question about how to earn money from home?
And, again, since you are promoting on the Internet, you do NOT have to walk, carrying all of that door to door.

Digital information products are items that your customers, subscribers, readers or website visitors can download directly to their computer.

People use the internet to find information and a lot of information is provided for free. But all the information on the internet is not 100% correct and can take a lot of time to find. Your digital information products, such as e-books, reports, videos etc, provide your customers with what they want in an organized format from a reliable source that they can trust.

If your business needs a boost, digital information products can raise your level of visibility and your level of expertise of your specific niche market. Here are 6 ways to use them.


1. List Building

List building is an important part of every online business, but to get somebody on your list you often have to give something away, particularly if you're new in the business. Produce a special report or a small e-book and offer it free in exchange for subscribing to your list.

2. Upsells

Whilst you are making use of that free e-book to build a list for your business, you can link it to a range of products that can be sold. For instance, when your new subscriber enters their information on the opt-in page, you can redirect them to a page where they can purchase an e-course which is related to the e-book.

3. Sell For Profit

One of the benefits when you sell digital products online is that they can work on autopilot for your business. You don't require postage stamps or boxes for delivery and your profits can be increased significantly because you only have to produce it once and you can sell it again and again.

4. Lead Generation

Offer free digital products as prizes in contests on your social media sites. Make sure to indicate the price these products would usually sell for so people know that they are getting a deal. Also, make it easy for people to share the contest with others.

5. Newsletters

People like to get things for free provided that it provides value. Send out a monthly newsletter to your list with a link to a free video or audio on a topic that will interest them. They can then receive information and another link to other products that you're selling.

6. Improve Visibility

Don't exclude other businesses in your marketing communications. Get to know other business owners at conferences or seminars. Get involved in online interactions and provide free access to some of your digital information products in the spirit of sharing and good faith.

Regardless of your age, education, technical skills or qualifications there are no specific requirements for creating digital information products and being a successful online entrepreneur. However you will be more successful with a solid business model to work from, clear direction, training and support.
