Can You Make Money Selling Digital Goods?

Most digital content selling are all about e-books, but actually, digital products could include software, audio, video or anything downloadable. Usually there are two ways to make money by selling digital goods, i.e. either you create and sell your own digital goods, or you earn commission by promoting others’ digital goods. Assuming you just plan to promote and profit, how much can you earn? Let’s check out some of the popular products at Shoutly’s marketplace:

Shoutly, formerly known as Clickbroker, is a Swedish based online marketplace for both vendors and affiliates for selling and promoting online digital products. Not sure if this is a limited time offer or not, right now when you sign up as an affiliate, you can receive a $30 signup bonus. When your account reaches the threshold of either SEK 700 or USD 100 or EUR 80 or 70 GBP, payments are sent on a weekly basis to your bank account or Paypal account. If you are interested to be a vendor, you only pay when a sale is made. For every sale generated by one of your affiliate marketers, you pay whatever affiliate commission you decide. Shoutly charges a 10% service fee in this commission plus a 5% transaction fee. Well, I’m going to give it a shot and see if it works. 🙂
