New Feature: Create Digital Goods on ScrollStack

Starting an online business has never been easier. Services like marketing, blogging, design, writing, and development work stand to be most popular amongst freelancers. Learning to sell Digital Products today is a great way if you're looking to secure some extra cash inflow.

However, although digital selling does bring in a much more relaxed environment in terms of not worrying about factors like inventory management, input costs, etc, things like presentation and support management do count. The huge gap between what platforms make (top 7 had a revenue of about $145 Billion in 2020) and how little if anything is shared with creators is one of the big drivers of the emerging decentralized Web 3.0.

As a creator, if you are looking to sell online, the most important thing you will want to make sure of is having a reliable hosting account that's both secure and well-managed. You would also want to make sure that the website looks beautiful and easy to manage.

ScrollStack promises you that environment!

Our focus is to make ScrollStack available to an audience beyond the technology-savvy early adopters. We are rolling out useful elements based on the feedback of our community (e.g., NFT embeds) while keeping the platform super simple to use.

Over the last few weeks, we have made some big updates - improving how users can showcase their creative content ranging from multi-media posts to books to even audio stories. This release is the next big step - you can now quickly add ‘digital goods’ - ebooks, photographs, audio, or video, in multiple file formats. All of them work with our one-click distribution to WhatsApp, email, and social media.

Now that we've covered some of the definitions and challenges, let's dive right into the opportunities. We have identified 17 options, many of which you can create and sell directly from the ScrollStack platform. Without further wait, let's look at the list of digital products and explore how they might help you grow your business:

  1. Courses

An online course is simply a digital version of an in-classroom course except that you teach online via video, text, and audio assets. Your customers can take your course in their own time without having to fuss about meeting deadlines or other chores. Adding on to the comfort, ScrollStack allows you to create courses of different sizes at different price points. Keep it free or charge for it, your Choice!

  1. E-books

E-books have been increasingly growing in population year over year. Experts predict that this new digital medium of reading will eventually take over physical books in terms of sales. The best part about selling an e-book is once you complete the product, you don't have to do any further work, other than marketing, of course.

As the writer, you get to decide on the e-book's length and content. You can self-publish it on your ScrollStack website by chapter or as the entire book, your Choice!

Here's an example of Kunal Basu's e-book on ScrollStack,

  1. Photography

    In today's times, when millions of creators are publishing content on a daily basis, there's a constant demand for unique photography. This is why many fine art photographers are taking this route so that they do not have to share their profits with established marketplaces.

    A great way to get people excited about your photography is to post your images on ScrollStack. Our platform allows you to retain all rights to your photos which helps protect your intellectual property but also exposes you to potential customers.

    For instance, you can sell photographs on ScrollStack in the form of,

    a. Small prints

b. Large canvases

  1. Music

    These days, major labels no longer control what kind of music makes it into the playlist of your average consumer. Hence, it's a perfect time for musicians to make an excellent living by selling their creations themselves.

    For example, singer Amanda Palmer recently launched one of the most successful crowdsourcing campaigns to fund her next album. She has been relying solely on grassroots marketing to sell her band's music ever since.

  1. Research and Data

    Data feeding and filtering can often absorb a considerable amount of time for a researcher. Some people do not want to spend that energy gathering data in one convenient place.

    That's where you come in!

    Selling data as a Digital good, such as information regarding industry or study results, can prove to be massively popular. People who purchase that data can then use it to inform their own businesses.

  1. Tutorials and Guides

    We live in a DIY world today. People are looking for platforms that would help them learn how to do things themselves. As a creator, you can sell a tutorial or guide that you specialize in.

  2. Recipes

    Cookbooks have lately stood out as the best-selling books. People are always looking for innovative recipe ideas and exploring cuisines from around the world.

    Regardless of whether you're an amateur or professional chef, you could put together a cookbook with your best recipes on ScrollStack.

We are coming soon with crypto payments. ScrollStack will be one of the few platforms where creators can get paid for traditional creations like ebooks or podcasts with cryptocurrencies.

Give the new features a try! We are eager to hear your feedback. Write to us on creators@scrollstack.com.
