Building & selling digital products became some sort of ideal way of creating passive income.

We can see hundreds, if not thousands, of different content creators who sell, or try to sell their products.

And I’m one of them too.

Throughout my career, I’ve built over 20 different reusable assets, made over 500 sales on them, and been able to create a stable cash flow from these products.

Now, it’s time to bust all these myths around them.

Myth 1: the market is oversaturated

Oh boy, if I’d get paid every time I hear this, then I would stop selling my digital products and fly away to Bali.

It’s one of the most common excuses that you can hear nowadays.

The trust is that — market is never oversaturated.

The number of people who are willing to purchase digital products is much higher than the number of creators who sell them.

In other words, the demand is higher than the offer.
