Get Started Selling Electronic Products on Your Blog

Today I explained a bit about the strategy I use to sell electronic products through my blog at Digital Photography School.

I sell ebooks, but as technology evolves, bloggers face a growing array of product creation possibilities.

Just as many hop on board the product bandwagon, so many keep well away from it. But developing a blog product can have many benefits for your blog, so it’s definitely not a business model you should simply ignore.

Importantly, you need to know before you begin where products fit within your overall blog strategy. That will help you to avoid premature product launching, and ensure your product meets a real audience need.

Devising, creating, and launching a product is hard work, so you want to do it carefully, and in a way that rewards you for all the hard work you’ve put in—and the hurdles you’ve overcome.

There’s as much advice about product development and sales as there are blog products available on the internet. But here are a few of our favorite ProBlogger posts:

    I would call it online electronics contract manufacturer, who has tie with community with own independent status, you produce for yourself, sell for yourself but involve and share with community to make a perfect Electronic Products Trading world.

    I started affiliate marketing just 3 months back and most of the sales I made were from the WP themes affiliate. People usually don’t buy much expensive stuff online especially in Asian countries.

    Great topic, Darren. As the online space has evolved as well as the proliferation of the e-readers/ipad environment, I believe their are substantial opportunities for all bloggers to profit from selling digital products. Ultimately, many of us would like to sell our own products.

    However, if you do not currently have your own product to market, there are an endless supply of pre-existing digital products available to sell via affiliate marketing. Whether you sell ebooks from places like Clickbank or E-Junkie, or promote Amazon products, you will quickly see that these sales can generate an additional review stream to more than supplement your existing monetization strategies.
