6 Digital Products Music Producers Can Sell Online

Why Digital Products Are Great

Digital products are great because once you create a digital product, it’s done. That product can be packaged and sold multiple times at almost no cost to you.

At that, since the product is digital, it can be delivered instantly to be downloaded by your customers around the world 24 hours a day while you do almost nothing.

Think about it… physical products have an upfront cost to buy, they need to be ordered, shipped, they take up space, and they may not sell, so you may lose money.

By selling digital products you have the opportunity of creating multiple streams of income.  Instead of relying mainly on your job for income, you can start to bring in passive income by selling your exclusive digital products and other tools that are byproducts of you making music.

Here are 6 Digital Products Music Producers Can Sell Online.

1. Sell Beats & Instrumentals

You already knew this one. Music artist all around the world are in need of beats. Selling beats exclusively can lead to big bucks, but there is also a business model in leasing beats to be sold to multiple music artists.

2. Sell Drum Kits

If you have been making music for a while, you may have made some custom drum samples. There are music producers just like you out there willing to pay for quality drum samples.
