Sell Products or Services… Can I Do Both?

Business Support, Digital Products, Packaging Information

by: Kel Amstutz

I have attracted a lot of people who are interested in creating digital products.

WHY?


Well, simply put- - because they are FRICKIN' AWESOME!!!

I mean, let's think about it...
  • There is no inventory.
  • You can sell digital products all day and ALL night.
  • You can sell digital products in the summer or in the winter months.

Digital products and services can definitely go hand-in-hand. And you can sell BOTH on your website. 



A great example is that you can be a graphic designer, you make your website with your designs and logos, OK. But, you can ALSO sell e-books and/or digital images, designs, etc. AS Digital Products!

What does this mean... 
WELL, I call it MULTIPLE STREAMS of INCOME
Yes, please!


You have money coming in from your person-to-person services, then you have money coming in from your digital info-products...Your expertise can be sold in many different forms.

If you bundle your info-products into a PDF or perhaps a video (or any file, really) well guess what...YOU CAN SELL IT!   



You just need to find the right target audience and you need to be smart about the way you choose to market your products. It is totally possible!  

You just have to understand that selling services and selling products are pretty different in nature. There are very different beasts and will require different sales processes.

As  I develop my business, online, it is really funny how I have begun to notice a lot of people who start out with a service or services and then offer Digital Products

I have done the opposite. I began selling my e-book first- pretty much because I did already have the expertise and knowledge to sell it. But, after a while I was looking for that personal interaction that I was not getting from the impersonal e-Book selling methods.  

So, I have decided that it is time for me to start offering my services and expertise in the form of coaching month to month. Now, I know that this is an awesome idea because I absolutely love working with clients and I am very excited to start having multiple income streams through e-books, online courses, workshops and one-on-one with clients. It really sounds like a fun blend and the next step of my journey.

So, what do you think?  

Do you get excited about selling products?  

Service?  

Or a blend of both of them?

When is The Last time You Level-Up'd?

Business Support, Lifestyle
by: Kel Amstutz


So, once upon a time... I started this blog, you know the one...Life at Gray Gables back in 2011. 

Sure, I was full of content but I wasn't really clear on 
  • what I wanted to do
  • who my audience was
  • what my brand could be
  • or even what mission I was on

It was, in my own words, my Hobby blog

It was not a business. 

It was something that I dedicated my heart and soul to, put my passion into, but I was putting my words on the computer screen, not really thinking about building anything...BIGGER than that.

I was not navigating my ship.

I was not being the captain. 


I was just a passenger, looking into the ocean for a landing spot...to see where I would end up...what kind of opportunities might...or might not happen.

I was extremely passive and taking an extremely passive approach.  In the end, I just floated around. I had high hopes of what I wanted my blog(s) to be...but trying to build them in order to build an income seems like it was a mirage.   

So, I started educating myself. I developed my professionalism, my business and my lifestyle goals.  

The biggest key for me was clarity.  

No, clarity is not always tied to implementation. Having a coach or mentor is extremely important

I decided to seek a coach, someone who would push me, hold me accountable, steer my course and let me be the captain to the ship I knew I needed to sail.  

What a difference, right!  



 Not only do I have huge ideas, but I am actually implementing new offerings that are extremely beneficial to all parties involved.  It has been a win-win situation for both myself and my clients.  





 
For those of you who ask...

'Is it really possible to make money doing what I love?'  

Well, YES!  

 


The fastest way to get there is to level up  YOURSELF.  
 
  • You need to surround yourself with people who are doing what you want to be doing. 
  • You need to arrange your role models in your circle and watch, look and listen. 


"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." 
~Jim Rohn  


Have you heard the saying "Two heads are better than one" ?  Hiring a captain to help navigate your ship could be the key for you to earn a couple dollars here and there or ACTUALLY earning a full-time income from home with a business that you had once only dreamed about. 

 



The difference that having a support system or coach can do for you is amazing. You will see and feel the changes taking place.
