Extraordinary Energy + Growth Mindset = Success, Freedom, Balance, and Joy

Are you wondering how to grow your business WITHOUT trading your time for money?

In the fast-paced world of entrepreneurship, the quest for sustainable growth often leads us to uncharted territories. If you’ve ever found yourself pondering the possibilities of generating passive income, you’re in the right place.

I talk about passive income a lot and always get asked the same questions. So, let’s lay it all out so you can decide if generating passive income is a good idea for your business and future.

1. What Do You Mean by Generating “Passive Income?”

A passive income stream is money you earn with minimal active involvement. It’s a digital product you sell online. Or maybe it’s an investment you make. If you’d like to learn more about passive income, check out my blog here.

2. Why Should I Consider Generating Passive Income for My Business?

Well, I can’t tell you what you should or shouldn’t do.

However, let’s do some simple math and you can decide…

If you want to spend 20 hours per week working and charge $100 per hour (just using an easy number for simple math here, you should be charging MUCH more than that). That is $2,000.

Let’s say you create a compelling digital product that solves someone’s problem and price it at $100 (again, just an example). If you sell 20+ of them in a week, that is equal to what you’d make working 20 hours. Except that, here’s the thing…you haven’t spent any time in that week to make that amount.

What could those 20 hours be filled with now?

  • More time with friends and family
  • Other business endeavers
  • Relaxing and an occasional nap
  • Filling your cup with other hobbies that bring you joy

Of course there is work that goes into creating your digital product and developing a sales system, but once it’s up and running, it takes care of itself.

So I ask you, “Why should you consider generating passive income for your business?”

Hint: it’s probably the same answer that you came up with when I asked how you’re now spending that 20 hours of freedom each week!

3. What Types of Digital Products Can I Create?

The beauty of digital products lies in their diversity. You can create an e-book, digital course, template, software, or premium content. Tailor your choice to your expertise and audience needs, ensuring a product that adds genuine value.

4. What Do I Need To Create A Digital Product That Will Generate Passive Income?

You really just need yourself. Everything you need to create a digital product comes from your knowledge / expertise / passions. Once you have identified your niche (more on that below) you’ll need a:

  • Digital product
  • Sales page
  • Sales funnel
  • Mindset shift from only active income to passive income

5. How Do I Identify a Profitable Niche for My Digital Product?

It all starts with you. First you need to figure out what you are an expert on, then you need to research and test. Conduct thorough market research to identify gaps or unmet needs within your niche. Look for areas where your expertise aligns with market demands, creating a product that serves both you and your customers.

6. Do I Need Technical Skills to Create Digital Products?

Nope. The digital landscape offers user-friendly tools and platforms that make product creation accessible to everyone. Canva is my preferred tool for everything I create and it’s very user-friendly. You don’t even need a computer, you can do all of your create on a mobile device if you needed to. Your focus should be on the content and make it as valuable as you can, let these tools handle the technical aspects.

7. How Do I Sell A Digital Product…I’m Not An Influencer?

Even if you don’t have a following today on social media, you can still sell your digital product. If you already have an audience, start with them. If not, leverage your research for developing the product to sell it online with Facebook and Instagram ads. You can also offer sneak peeks, limited-time discounts, or exclusive content to entice potential customers.

8. Is It Possible to Generate Passive Income Quickly?

Okay, I’m going to be painfully honest here. When someone asks me this, I answer, “No.” Passive income is NOT a “get rich quick” strategy. More passive income myths debunked here! This doesn’t mean that when you launch your product it won’t sell immediately. What it does mean is that it does take some work and effort to get it created and launched, but then…and this is the beauty of a passive income stream, it runs on its’ own.

9. What Should I Charge For My Digital Product?

Pricing will not make or break your digital product. If you create a valuable digital product that meets a need / solves a problem, people will pay for it. That being said, consider factors like production costs, perceived value, and market trends. My favorite tip: Offering tiered pricing or a limited-time introductory rate can create a sense of urgency and drive sales.

10. How Can I Ensure the Long-Term Success of My Digital Product?

Adaptability is crucial for sustained success. Regularly update your digital product to meet evolving market needs. Engage with your audience through surveys and feedback, fostering a community around your product. This not only enhances its value but also ensures long-term customer loyalty.

11. Are There Risks Associated with Generating Passive Income through Digital Products?

As with any business venture, there are risks involved. The digital landscape is dynamic, and trends can shift quickly. Mitigate risks by staying informed, diversifying your product offerings, and building a robust marketing strategy that can weather industry changes. Do not worry about market saturation. There are more people in the world than digital products. If your product adds value, it will sell.

12. Can I Generate Passive Income While Maintaining Work-Life Balance?

Absolutely. That is kinda the whole point!
