There are a lot of beautiful things about digital products, that physical products simply can’t compete with.

Instant distribution, for one. There’s no need to deal with picking and packing, shipping and returns. You can put it up for sale, and it’s available for consumption instantly.

Ease of creation is huge as well – there’s no need to deal with foreign factories, import laws, and ordering thousands of units at a time to meet factory minimums.

This is why digital products are so popular for bloggers, vloggers, and other content creators online. The risks are low, and upsides are very high.

However, perhaps one of the greatest benefits that digital products have is the fact that they can continuously updated over time. They never have to be truly complete, and always have room to be improved. Because of this, it’s possible to start out with something very small, and have it blossom into something truly amazing as time goes on.

In this article, we’ll go over more about why you need to be updating your products, and how to do so in a way that continues stacking on value for your customers.

One of the biggest mistakes I see so many bloggers making is the fact that they aren’t selling any products of their own.

Sure, you may be promoting somebody else’s product as an affiliate, and that’s certainly a good way to monetize your blog, but the benefits of selling a product of your very own are enormous.

It tends to come down to one of two reasons – either they feel they don’t have a good idea for a product, or they are concerned about the amount of time it takes to create something and are worried that the investment of their time will not be worth it.

These concerns are understandable – after all, who wants to spend months creating something they feel is amazing only for it to ultimately flop?

Fortunately, the risk of this can be dramatically reduced by creating something called a minimum viable product, or MVP for short. Using the advice laid out for you in this article, you’ll be able to eliminate these concerns by creating and bringing a product to market far quicker than normal, and you’ll be able to verify it’s a product that your audience is interested in purchasing before putting too much time into it.
