In this article I am going to talk about the different types of digital products you can create that are suitable for an online business.
If you have an online business and you want to create products that people can download instantly from your web page then ideally the products need to be in a digital format.
There are basically three main types of digital products that you can easily download over the Internet.
An e-book stands for an electronic book and basically it has been created in such a way that it can be easily downloaded over the Internet. An e-book is usually in a PDF format. This means that you can download it onto your computer’s hard drive and then read it using a free software called Adobe Acrobat. The PDF itself cannot be altered in any way and if the person who has created the PDF has secured it then you are unable to copy the actual text that you read.
You can create an ebook using open office which is a free to use software.
An audio can be saved in many different formats such as MP3 or.wav for example. These formats are easily downloaded over the Internet and can be played on your computer with software that is free to use.
Your audio can be recorded using Audacity which is again a free software that you can download to your computer.
Video can be downloaded over the Internet as it is in a digital format such as MP4. The downside about video products is that they take up a lot of memory on your website and also when you download them onto your hard drive they take up quite a lot of space on your computer’s hard drive.
However, video products are very popular as they enable people to see as well as hear the information that they want.
If you are recording screen shots from your computer then you can use Camstudio or BB Flashback. Both of these are free to use and download to your computer. For other video you can use your own video camera.
Digital products are becoming more and more popular as people demand instant access. Our lives are getting so busy that we just don’t want to wait to get what we want or need. We need to have it now! So digital products are ideal as they enable people to begin learning from them within minutes.
