4 Compelling Reasons For Creating A Product To Sell Online

by Faith

There are many ways of working from home and making money online.

Do you have a preferred way?

Or are you looking for a way to build your side income or even a full-time income?

My blog generates income for me through several methods — advertising, affiliate marketing, and selling my own printables and online courses.

For advertising, your blog needs a substantial amount of traffic before you can enjoy the income from advertising.

For affiliate marketing, it is much less dependent on blog traffic.

Perhaps you have heard many testimonials of how people have earned through affiliate marketing even with a small blog.

Well, affiliate marketing can be a wonderful way of making money since you are helping to sell a product that probably already has a proven sales record.

However, I am still a firm believer in creating and selling my own products online.

And I’d like to encourage you to do the same if you want to build a lasting online business!

4 Compelling Reasons For Creating A Product To Sell Online

1. No one can take away your creation

Being a creator means you have the skills and imagination to put ideas into reality.

Creating your own products to sell online can come in the form of writing your own ebooks, creating your own printables, and building your own online courses.

Even though there is a risk that digital work may be subject to plagiarism, there is only so much a copycat can take from you.

In essence, nobody can truly take away your creations because you possess the qualities to not only create one product but AS MANY AS YOU WANT, WHENEVER YOU WANT.

2. You have complete autonomy

You have complete autonomy in deciding how your product should be designed, produced, and marketed.

You can truly be YOUR OWN BOSS when you have ownership of original products that come from your own hands and brain.

If you own a blog or an online shop, you are the one who knows your readers and buyers best and, therefore, can create a product that is best customized to your audience’s profile and naturally build a huge demand for your creation.


3. You get to be the boss

Yes, earning affiliate marketing commissions can be very attractive.

Some companies pay their marketers an attractive 40% commission for every sale or even hundreds of dollars per transaction.

But the truth is, being an affiliate marketer means you will always be subjected to the rules of the company you partner with.

That means things can change in an instant without you being able to exert any control.

Commission rates can be cut, product features can be changed, and payment modes can be modified.

Basically, you have absolutely no control over changes that may negatively affect your affiliate marketing business.

On the other hand, you will not have such a problem when you create and sell your own products.

Furthermore, instead of being the one earning a commission, you can even start an affiliate program to get other people to market your products.

You get to control how much your affiliates earn while benefitting from having more people helping you market YOUR products.

4. You get to enjoy passive income and financial freedom

Yes, you can also enjoy passive income through affiliate marketing.

However, because of the uncontrollable changes mentioned in the previous point, you can never truly be ‘free’.

If one day, a company closes down, that could mean the end of one of your most lucrative affiliate marketing streams of income.

On the contrary, when you create and sell your own products, you can effectively build a big enough empire that is self-sustaining.

That can happen when you have built huge and consistent traffic and raving fans who will make regular repurchases and even refer their friends to purchase your products.

You can literally not work and still have money going into your bank account every day!

That is the beauty of passive income!

Of course, if you want your online empire to last for years and years, you would still need to put in the effort to maintain and update your products.

But remember, since YOU are the boss, you can hire help and still have more than enough in your pocket.
