Sell Digital Products And Services With Your Online Course
Why would you want to sell digital products and services with your online courses? I am glad you asked. There are many reasons that you may want to include different digital products in your online course packages.
What is a digital product or service?
A digital product or service can be anything from a checklist to an eBook.
A digital product is not physically tangible but instead delivered electronically via email, web hosting, file sharing services like Dropbox.
Most learning management systems will have this feature built in, but not all of them do.
Some popular digital products would be swipe files, tools like a calculator built-in Google Sheets, an audio version of your online course and even templates your students can edit and use on their own.
Why you should sell digital products and services?
There are many reasons to include digital products and services with your online course.
The main reason would be an upsell.
If someone buys your online course, they may want to purchase the workbook to go with it.
It can also be used as a down sell.
If someone shows interest in your online course but does not buy it due to price or another issue, they may be interested in an eBook instead.
Services like 1-on-1 sessions are also a great way to make your online course more valuable to your students.
Digital technology has made it so easy for us to create, publish, and sell our own online course.
Offering other digital products and services alongside your course can help your students learn even more from you.

One of the major benefits is that it doesn’t require a lot of overhead costs, which means you can have a business without having to invest in inventory or other expensive items.
It allows you greater control over how much product goes into production at any given time.
If you want to sell your course in several pieces, you can do that.
If you have limited time to do 1-on-1 calls, you can have a limit on how many of those sessions you offer.
If you want to offer your online course at a lower price point, you sell the other digital products as upsells that people can buy as they can afford it.
