In this article, we’ll guide you through the entire process of creating a WordPress eCommerce store for selling digital downloads, step-by-step.
If you’ve been running your eCommerce store long enough, you’ve probably heard this statistic: 69% of carts are abandoned by shoppers. In fact, you may be a bit tired of hearing that number, especially if you’re not sure if it even applies to your store, or what you can actually do about it.
Pricing digital products can be a challenge. If you’re not sure where to start, getting a ballpark idea from your competitors can be a helpful reference – but there’s more to it than that! Creating your own pricing framework can help you to qualify your products and place them into tiers based on predetermined categories and criteria. There are also some different concepts and pricing models you can utilize to take some of the decision-making weight out of the process and make it a little easier to settle on a number. Let’s take a look at some tips for structuring your digital product pricing for success!

For a variety of possible reasons, if you’re a WordPress plugin or theme owner, you may find yourself in a situation where your product is slowly dying out (or can pretty much be declared dead already). With the number of abandoned plugins and themes, we all know that dying products are a rather common sight in the WordPress ecosystem. If this has happened to your product, or if you fear that someday it might, then read this article, in which I’ll provide you with several salvation options that can help either revive or repurpose your dying product and help it continue to bring value to you and to other people.
Mike Stott, one of the developers behind Zero BS CRM, answered my questions about the origins of the plugin, the decision behind the name and what it’s like building what is traditionally a SaaS application as a self-hosted solution. Mike was gracious enough to spend a lot of time on these answers and I wanted to thank him publicly for going the extra mile.
Ways to Make Money
How to start an online business: It’s a giant question, one that’s loaded with lots of ins and outs. And it’s one that I (with a little help from someone on my team) will attempt to answer for you in this post! I’m first going to share what I consider the crucial first three steps you must go through (plus a couple more key tips) before building an amazing online business. Then we’ll introduce some of the things we’ll be talking about on the blog in the near future about the less sexy but still super important parts of creating a business that will stand out and stand the test of time.
Graphics and digital artwork are some of the most popular types of digital products to sell online, with a variety of lucrative avenues for generating income. But if you’re a graphic designer or digital artist, you might not feel 100% confident about how to monetize your artistic talents to earn a living. eCommerce has opened a whole new world for artists, removing the overhead costs and extra hassle of setting up a traditional store, printing physical copies, and shipping goods to customers. It’s now more convenient and affordable than ever to buy and sell digital designs, which creates a pretty significant win-win for artists and customers alike! Here’s how.
Having a strategy that diversifies your revenue streams is now a prerequisite in many niches for success. As such, hunting for every opportunity to monetize your content should be a task you fully commit to as soon as you can. One area that’s relatively low-hanging fruit in this regard is your videos. In this post, we’ll discuss video monetization a little further, including what it is and why you should do it. Then, we’ll talk about the WP Video Monetize plugin, which lets you make money from your videos by harnessing WordPress’ native technologies. Let’s get started!
