How to Make An Extra $1,000/month in Passive Income Selling Digital Downloads on Etsy
Learn how to make over $1,000/month in passive income on Etsy.
Are you looking to make extra income?
Do you dream of building passive income channels towards financial freedom...but don’t know where to begin?
I want you to know that you’re not alone, and that you’ve come to the right place!
My name is Sharon Tseung, and I'm the creator of DigitalNomadQuest, a platform teaching people how to make passive income and create financial freedom. I traveled the world for 2 years, visited over 30 countries, all while growing my passive income streams to an average of $4,000/month and substantially increasing my net worth! To this day, I rarely touch my income streams, yet they're still making money for me.
BUT...it wasn't always like this.
Before I embarked on my journey, I spent 4-5 years in an office, working for the man. I wasn't passionate about my work, and I didn't like that I was dependent on trading time for money. I kept trying to convince myself that this is how life's supposed to be.
But then I thought, what if there WERE another way, and I just hadn’t figured it out? What if I could make money work for me, while doing what I loved?
I figured out what I really wanted in life: TIME. I wanted time to see the world, pursue my dreams, and work on something meaningful. I also wanted to inspire others to live THEIR dreams.
So in May of 2016, I quit my job and booked a one-way ticket to Stockholm to embark on my entrepreneurial journey on the road. At first it was scary defying social norms and leaving the comforts of a steady paycheck and career, but it ended up being one of the best decisions in my entire life.
One year of travel quickly became two. It didn't come without challenges, but that was the beauty of it. All the work I put in, the obstacles I overcame, and the risks I took paid off. During my journey, I built passive income streams to free up my life, with one of my main channels being Etsy.
With Etsy alone, I've made at least $30,000 in revenue (not all earnings pictured here). And most of this is profit because digital products have low expenses!
The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course
When I first decided I wanted to be financially free and location independent, I had no idea how to even BEGIN making passive income. I needed to figure out some way to make income as I embarked on my journey.
I started browsing articles, reading books, and perusing different marketplaces, when I noticed people selling digital downloads on Etsy. That's when a light bulb came on. I realized with my graphic design abilities, I could create my own shop, brand, and passive income stream through designing Photoshop and MS Word templates.
However, this didn't come without struggles:
- I couldn't find any good courses teaching people how to make passive income through digital downloads on Etsy.
- I spent massive amounts of time just learning how the marketplace worked and how to optimize my listings.
- I wasted a lot of time figuring out how to make listings quickly and design templates efficiently.
- I had no good resources to rely on.
- I made a lot of mistakes.
After years of building and refining my own Etsy shop, coaching others on their Etsy stores, and providing educational information on my blog, I wanted to help spread my knowledge. I began working on a comprehensive guide of everything I knew around Etsy and passive income to ultimately bring you The Etsy Entrepreneur (AKA the course I wish I had when I first started out)!

"Wow. Simply put, this course is amazing! From a young age I've always wanted to get into creating passive income, it heavily intrigued me. But I never knew what to do, where to start from, and I was truly stuck for a very long time. But one day, I came across Sharon's incredible site and business 'DigitalNomadQuest'. To say the least, I was interested. Not only does Sharon herself spoil her followers with her extremely informative blog posts, but she even created a course dedicated to helping YOU, make passive income simply. This course effortlessly conveyed the creation of passive income in a fun, and intriguing manner. It helped push me on the right track, and made me strive for greatness. And with some hard work and time, I was able to start my own Etsy shop. (By the way, I got my first sale on my shop! So happy about this, thank you so much Sharon!) The course not only helped me develop my own site, but however helped me carve out a brand I was able to be genuinely proud of and excited for. If you were in my position and want to aim high with creating a passive income based business, I 100%, without a doubt, recommend Sharon's course.

"I love how in-depth The Etsy Entrepreneur is and how it covers everything from start to finish. Even if you don’t know ANYTHING about Etsy or digital downloads, you can become an expert on the platform and start making passive income. Sharon even guides you on how to make a digital download with free tools like Google Docs as well as paid apps like Photoshop. I was able to emulate what she taught to make my very own digital download.
Also I like how Sharon is to the point. The course content contains no fluff material that’s super easy to consume. I’ve gotten a lot of great information from the course that has boosted my shop sales, just from following the SEO steps and tips. Even if you know a bit about Etsy, you will benefit from this course." - 5/5 Stars
"The Etsy Entrepreneur is one of the best courses I’ve ever taken. I never knew that Etsy was such a powerful way to create passive income and this course had EVERYTHING you needed to know about the platform! This course is great for beginners who have never even been on Etsy before and Sharon does a great job of breaking down the individual steps that you need to create a successful business on it.
Besides the basic instructions of teaching us how to create and start selling a listing, she gives us great SEO tactics to help our products rank higher on the Etsy marketplace.
The most interesting part was seeing how easy it was to create a digital product using free tools such as Google Docs! By creating these digital downloads with free tools, we’re able to create dozens of useful templates and designs, and sell them online without paying for inventory or holding costs! By selling our products on Etsy, we’re able to earn enough passive income to supplement our current lifestyle and get one step closer to early retirement.
All of this information was basically given away for free. The passive income we get from using the methods in this course has paid for itself and then some within one month. Honestly, you could probably learn and figure out everything on your own, but it would take you hundreds of dollars and hours to do so. How much is your time worth? This course will teach you everything so that you won’t have to struggle and waste your time.
If you’re interested in earning passive income in a proven and well-tested method, you need to get this course. It’ll change your life." -5/5 Stars

In this course we'll walk you through two basic tutorials of how to make a digital download via Google Docs and Photoshop. However, you need to make sure you're willing to learn and create digital downloads to stock your shop. Creating quality digital downloads is crucial to your success on Etsy, and it may require some further research on what files you'll make and how you'll make them. You must be willing to put in the effort.
- Digital products can include notes/guides on your expertise, ringtones, budgeting plans, invoice templates, wall art, Excel spreadsheets, calendars, illustrations, Wordpress themes, coloring book printables, MS Word resumes, crochet patterns, e-books, holiday card Photoshop templates, and more. This is just a brief sample of ideas. We'll provide a more comprehensive list of 105 instant download ideas in the course.

You should NOT take this course if:
- You are already an expert Etsy seller making passive income with advanced understanding of Etsy SEO, customer support tactics, effective ways to make listings, and more.
- You expect a get rich quick scheme. You're not going to buy this course and wake up a millionaire. This course gives you the information and tools you need to make money passively, but you will actually need to take action to achieve results. You will need to consistently spend time building out your Etsy shop and adding listings.
- You're not willing to spend a few minutes a week maintaining your Etsy shop after you've set it up. I spend a few minutes a week maintaining my Etsy shop via customer support and SEO, so when I say passive income, there is still some maintenance required after you've set up your shop.
You SHOULD take this course if:
- You are excited about making passive income.
- You know how to make digital downloads. But if you don't, no worries. We will teach you some methods in doing so in this course!
- You have no prior experience or have only basic level experience in Etsy, and you want to learn how to make money online.
