No amount of secrets, resources, or network can make up for action.
In 2019, it’s easier than ever to be a digital nomad. Facebook, YouTube, and Google are flooded with ads by “experts” claiming to be living the lifestyle whilst marketing to you a step by step guide for as little as US$999 a month.
The people who buy those courses, ebooks, and other “secrets” are only separated from success or failure by one thing. That one thing is that same thing that makes them different from the person selling to them. Namely, that one thing is the drive to act.
No amount of secrets, resources, or network can make up for action. Action generates experience via failure and success. Action creates opportunity. Action also gives perspective on the reality of what goes into operating a digital business.
Regardless of your background, you have expertise or resources in a field that someone somewhere is interested in. If you don’t, then you must have a skill set or experience that you can share or use as a foundation for building your own product or service.
What Goes Into Building A Digital Product?
A digital product is anything that is paid for by a client online. You can sell anything from ebooks like the gurus to audio recordings of yourself reading books in weird voices.
Ask yourself a few questions:
- What are you interested in?
- Can you write, program, or run a business well?
- What are you interested in that can make money and are there any trends that can affect it?
- What resources do you have to use?
These questions will form the basis of what kind of product you create. If you like basketball, there are physical training video opportunities, ebooks, or affiliate opportunities
Working with a digital firm versus one that you connect with in person can be a bit daunting. It’s asking yourself to act on faith that the team you will be relying on is up to the task.
For example, Digis Software Development Company works with its partners to build software solutions for a variety of purposes and markets, not limited to Digital Marketing, Blockchain, Analytics, and more.
While they aren’t located in the US, like many of the best firms, the advantage is in being able to get a cheaper initial beta for any product you develop.
It’s less about cutting corners and more about maximizing the use of your resources as much as possible.
Every dollar that you can save, should be redirected to other areas that require more attention
