Born in London, I currently live and work in Accra, Ghana. I am a writer and creative entrepreneur.
I'm a single mom and I Make more than $3000 working from my dining table
I have been a single mom for the past 10 years. I worked as a registered nurse for 15 years. Last year, I decided to take a chance and build a business working from home. In the past few months, I have made more than $3000 each month working from home selling digital products. Here is my strategy:
Create Low Content Digital Books
I create low content digital books. What is a low content digital book? A low content digital book is a book that features little or no content. For example, a notebook, short workbook or journal.
How Do I Create Them?
I outsource the process of creating the low content books to freelancers on Fiverr and Upwork. I pay $50 for each low content digital book.
How do I promote the books?
I promote the books using a very simple strategy. I create one month of Pinterest posts in advance and schedule their publication. I mix the content and focus on short videos, articles and images. Therefore, I will share content that I have written about self development and productivity to add value for the followers. Then, I will post content about the products. Every 3rd post focuses on the product and I link the store Url into the post.
Where I do I sell the books?
I sell the books on Amazon and on my own website. Amazon is the easiest option for beginners because they process payments and people trust Amazon therefore, it's a lot easier to gain traction when you sell your digital books on Amazon.
Other marketing methods:
-Search engine optimization
My advice to you
Create your product, publish it, promote it by creating useful content for your target audience. If you are new to content creation, focus on one platform. I suggest Pinterest if your target audience are women. Tik for a younger audience and YouTube Shorts if you want to reacher a wider general audience.
I will go into more detail about each method in another article.
