One of the most popular questions among bloggers is: How can I make money blogging? And one of the many ways to make money with your blog is to sell digital products of your own. In this post I go over how to sell digital products online using SendOwl.

Once you have your product out there you will have laid the foundation you need to earn from that product over and over. You can literally make money while you sleep since everything can be automated after you have put in the time to create your digital product.

What Is SendOwl and How Does It Help You Sell Digital Products?
SendOwl is very popular among bloggers who sell digital products online.
You have probably even bought something through them and haven’t even realized it.
I use SendOwl to sell my digital products, like BloggingYourBlog.com’s Pinterest Templates.
SendOwl allows you to sell your digital products online by connecting you to different payment providers and using their system to accept payment and deliver your digital products to your customers.
By doing this service, SendOwl makes it so you don’t have to worry about having a secure cart system on your blog. And you don’t have to worry about delivering anything once a purchase is made. Everything is done automatically for you and your customers don’t have to wait for what they purchased.
Another great benefit of using SendOwl to sell your digital products is that you can have access to using their affiliate program within the platform. This means you can have affiliates helping you sell your products!
Getting others to help sell your products is a great way to help increase the amount of sales you get. And SendOwl makes this easy to do.
What Is The Cost?
SendOwl does have several different pricing plans you can use, starting at $9 per month.
The basic plan that is $9 per month gives you up to 10 products and 1GB of storage for your products.
The $15 per month plan is usually where you want to start if you want to be able to use affiliates and have more products.
After the $15 per month plan, there is a $24 and $39.
Which plan you choose is up to you and depends on how many products you want to have and what features you need to be able to use for your digital products that you are selling.

Tools to Help You Make and Sell Your Digital Products
If you’re looking for a place to make your eBooks, PDFs, Social Media Templates and much more Canva is a great place to make those. I use Canva to make all my social media templates and PDFs that are used on this blog.
Another tool that is used for many graphical products and social media templates is PhotoShop.
You will also want to make sure that you have an email service so you have a way to keep your audience up to date on your products. MailerLite is the service that I use and recommend. Best part is that it is free for up to 1,000 subscribers.
