1: Selling Digital Products
Selling digital products has become a multi-billion-dollar industry, and as a result, one of the most efficient and effective ways for first-time entrepreneurs to generate steady passive income. These products allow people to take their skills, knowledge, and expertise and package it into a downloadable product for consumers.
There are so many options for digital product ideas, so you’re bound to find something you sell.
Some examples of digital products include:
- Templates (resumes, recipes, website, calendars, and more)
- Educational courses
- Presentation templates
There are so many advantages to creating and marketing digital products, which is why it’s number one on my list. If you have any skills that you could turn into digital goods, you’re sitting on a potential gold mine.

My favorite thing about working in the tax industry? The money—plain and simple. And believe me when I tell you that you can make a lot of it by operating a tax prep business. Like $100,000 in 120 days a lot. And I can show you how.
