Tim Ferriss stated in his book, The 4-Hour Workweek, that “there is one class of product that meets all of our criteria, has a manufacturing lead time of less than a week in small quantities, and often permits not just an 8–10× markup, but a 20–50× markup.�?

Sales & Fulfillment
One of the greatest things about digital products is that you do not have to manufacture/ship anything. But, finding the right payment processor can be key.

Product Launch
