Converting Your Designs Into Digital Products

An important part of creating digital products is to convert your designs and creative content into a digital template or product. Claudia shares about her step by step strategy involves coming up with inspirations organically as well as doing some market research online. Although her art focuses on packaging watercolor art for other graphic artists and creative designers online, her process of coming up with ideas and packaging them up as digital products can also be used for many digital entrepreneurs such as photographers, calligraphers, graphic designers, and other creative online business owners. 

She shares about the three important steps you need to create a digital product from your creations includes:

1. Have a creative template or digital product to sell

2. Sell your digital product on online marketplaces 

3. Create a simple automation so you do not need to do more work once you deliver your digital products.

Pricing Your Digital Art and Creations

Online artists and creatives thankfully have many places to submit their artwork to, but each marketplace has their own benefits and challenges. Claudia shares that pricing your digital art and creations on these marketplaces is part of an important selling strategy when trying to stay competitive. When it comes to pricing products, you’ll need to consider your average product pricing based on market research you’ve done on each of the platforms and consider ongoing trends through researching competitors and through social media channels. 

Additional Training and Resources

Claudia is currently a student of the Wondrous Webinar program that helps course creators build confidence sharing about their online programs through online webinars. Claudia is hosting a free training called “How to Make More Money as a Creative Online Without Working Harder or Being Famous” a free training which will walk you through how to sell your digital creations without selling to friends or family or having to be famous, the best digital product idea for you, how to get started with passive income without creating a course or becoming a guru, and how to launch a digital collection in under 3 weeks even if you’re new to business. I highly recommend this training for graphic designers, artists, and other creative business owners who creates art online and want to scale their business with digital templates to sell on digital marketplaces!
