My Tips for Choosing What Digital Product to Sell on Esty:

Brainstorm Things You Would Enjoy Creating and Selling

Get a blank sheet of paper and your favorite drink. Then start wiring any idea that comes to mind. Then pick one to start and stick with it.

Stick to What You Know

If you already have an established niche online create some downloadable tools that compliment that. If you have a blog that targets moms think about tools or creative prints that your audience would love. If you love essential oils create some essential oil cheat sheets or recipe cards. 

Do Some Research

Once you have a few ideas in mind do some searching on Etsy and Pinterest. If you find something like your idea that’s a good thing! Let me repeat… it is good to find listings for the things you want to create because that means there is likely a demand for it.
