So, my friend, you’re ready to say goodbye to feeling burned out in your career, start doing what you really looove, and get a fair paycheck for doing it!! I got you covered!! That’s why I’m passionate about passive income. You can work on what you love, share it with the world and have the freedom all creatives and artists need to be able to create new work.

When I’m talking with a creative entrepreneur, something in me takes over. She wants to take steps to improve her business’s customer experience, and I’m flooded with ideas for her! I become super pumped to share the digital resources and tools she can use with her clients, and then another wave of ideas come. Digital media, automatization, creative freedom, and selling digital products are my passions, and I want to share them with the world. I’m most excited when I think of a passionate person doing what they love while making their customers happy. Win-win!

Ok, I don’t want to keep all those ideas to myself, so that’s why I’m posting specific ideas on digital products you can create to build your passive income empire!

Whether you’re  a photographer, calligrapher, artist, copywriter, blogger, creative, coach…I could stay here all day naming more careers, but my point is that anyone can create digital products for their clients.

I’m about to blow your mind with a bazillion possible ideas. The secret here is: don’t get overwhelmed. Just pick the ones that resonate with you and will let you stay true to your brand. Even if you choose only one of them, it’s fine! You don’t need to do them all. Choosing with just one is the perfect way to start, and then you can branch out to more options.

    These are all wonderful ideas and as a photographer, I’ve been toying with ways to make a passive income with my images from travels or anything that inspires me really. With my planning, I was considering digital downloads of my work that customers can print at home.. Was wondering how could one combat potential resell of images even though we have a disclaimer. What are your thoughts on invisible watermarks or adding a watermark for digital images for download.

    Thanks for your comment Tracy!
    Selling digital products always has a risk since you are delivering the core of your creation. I think that is good to use watermarks on the images you have on your website, but you shouldn’t include them in the paid products. You have to include a Terms of Use document with your purchase.
    ALso, I’d recommend you to be prepared to send a Cease and Desist Letter if you find someone who is violating your copyrights. I’ve faced that several times and sending a Cease and Desist Letter has worked all the times.
    I talked about the same topic on this blog post
    Let me know if you have questions about this.
