Laptop lifestyle: Create a freedom based business with Digital and Affiliate Marketing

If you've ever dreamt of creating passive income or a "side hustle" in your life, digital products and affiliate marketing continues to grow at a rapid rate and provides more endless choices than ever before. It's a massive digital world out there and it can sometimes be overwhelming. So where do you start?

Starting with a business development course to create an automated system that runs with email marketing automation and a powerful funnel is a very good place to start! No matter your niche you love or type of business you want to build, learning high value skills to work for your long term is utterly important.


Forbes recently announced that digital marketing is the fastest growing and highest paid industry out there and could reach 1.5 Trillion by 2030!

First let's look at the advantages of digital products and affiliate marketing:

  • Very little start up cash required. Unlike traditional bricks and mortar stores or even online shops, digital products like eBooks, courses or templates can cost very little but can be sold for a high profit.
  • No inventory required. No actual stock or items taking up space in your life. Digital files are simply on your laptop or phone.
  • Private label rights (PLR) are affordable and come with most digital products and allow you to often rebrand the cover, content and design and sell the item at whatever price you like.
  • Master Resale Rights allow you to buy a product as is and resell it with the rights.
  • No shipping or dealing with customs. This is a big advantage. The item is bought and received right away by the customer.
  • A digital product can be bought infinite amount of times and no restocking takes place.
  • Affiliate marketing is when you promote a product or service you like and get a special link for it to promote it and get a commission on every sale. This too can be very lucrative if you find the right product and niche you like and believe in.
  • Sales continue while you sleep. There is no packing them up, they simply keep selling while you live your life.

So what digital products are popular and what should you choose?

  • The most popular digital product niches are health, wealth and relationships, but that does not mean you should automatically be selling those.
  • Pick something you love and enjoy and if you're not sure then pick something that's proven to be profitable. eBooks, courses and guides on cooking, pets, gardening, interior design, get the idea. You'll find it way easier to promote and sell something you believe in and actually like.
  • Business Development Courses like The Roadmap can be found in my digital store and helps with all the business fundamentals from the ground up! With over 300 in-depth videos that are clear, precise and use plain language for building a foundation, understanding your niche, automation, sales, promoting, email marketing, funnel creation, content strategies, building and personalizing your brand, master resell rights, SEO, building your own products, driving traffic, providing customer service, having the right mindset and so much more!
  • If you're creative, you can also create your own digital products like journals, notebooks, activity sheets, templates, planners, presentations, workbooks, education resources, cards, invitations etc...the ideas are endless. Find a program like Canva, creative fabrica, garageband, envato etc and design away!
  • Instead of creating you can instead be a virtual assistant or get paid to read and review eBooks. There are numerous platforms that will pay you for both of these tasks. Platforms like task rabbit, Chatter Boss, Upwork, fancy hands, Time etc, Uassist.ME, WoodBows are super helpful.

My digital store is now an automated system that makes me passive income without inventory, shipping, mail rates, mail problems or anything getting lost in the mail or damaged. Digital marketing is a wonderful way to supplement your income or become your full-time income over time!

I hope you've enjoyed this look at digital marketing and the exciting opportunities it is offering in a rapidly growing online space. Maybe it's something that excites you gives you the opportunity to make extra income or become something you could do to leave the traditional 9 - 5 behind for good!

Until next time!
