There are lots of ways that you can make money online. It’s so simple to take action and make something or sell something that somebody else wants. But let’s look at how you can make money selling printables online by starting a business selling printables for people to buy.

It’s one of the easiest ways to make money in the blogging business because you are making products just once and selling them again to different people. You don’t need a website or even social media, you can just create these and sell them on a platform like Etsy.

What Are Printables?

Printables are simply templates that people buy to use rather than making their own, potentially saving them time and money.

They can be in a lot of different formats, but for the sake of this article, I want to look at printables that are PDFs that you can either print off or use a PDF software that allows you to write on the PDF with your tablet and computer pen.

They are easy to make and can be from a single page to hundreds of pages in length.

How Can You Use Printables To Make Money?

There is a market for people wanting templates for so many things and instead of making it themselves, they look for people who have made it already.

It saves them time and money to buy something premade rather than trying to make the item themselves. They might not have the skills to make the item or the time. Buying it could be their only option

So many people don’t realize that you can make printables and how easy it is. But equally important they might not have the desire to create something when they are easily available already made and ready to use.

Who Buys Printables?

People who are looking to solve a problem that they have will want to buy the solution and the solution comes in the form of a PDF. This can be as simple as a coloring page for a child to a full planner for the entire year.

If there is a problem where a simple PDF can be used to help that person follow a plan or to give guidance on a problem then these are the best PDFs that you can sell.

But what’s great is that these problems aren’t just one person’s problem, multiple people have the same problem and are looking for the solution. The solution comes in the form of the PDF that is being sold and the creator only had to make it once, yet they sell it multiple times to lots of different people who all have the same problem.

Why Do People Buy Printables?

Your customers want the answer to their problem and if your PDF solves that problem then they are going to purchase the item.

A planner is a good example, people plan differently because we aren’t all the same and we want to find one that works for them.

This means many different planners can focus on different ways of doing the same thing, helping people plan their day.

So, there are so many PDF planners out there that are all doing the same job, helping someone plan their day, but they do it in a different way that makes sense to those people who are buying them.
