Opening up your site to e-commerce is a great way to bring in extra cash. You can start with a few products and work your way up to a full store.
Don’t have a physical product? No problem–try selling an e-product. An e-product is anything you might deliver as a download. This could include PDFs, video, music, audio files, forms, photos, images, software–you name it. Many business do very well selling e-products. Take a look at Apple, for example, whose sales on iTunes of music and apps have made them one of the most valued companies in America.
The best thing about e-products is that there is no shipping and you don’t need to keep track of the stock. However, they are often a lot more work to develop or license.
