What Is A Koji?

A Koji is a type of interactive media that can help you sell your products, downloads, services or premium content. To create a Koji, simply select a template and customize before sharing the unique URL on Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, WhatsApp, or anywhere else!

Best Digital Product Ideas For The Holidays

Ready to earn big this holiday season? Consider crafting any of these digital gifts for your customers: 

1. Calendar, Journal, or Planner Templates

With the new year right around the corner, digital templates for calendars, journals, or planners are unsurprisingly in demand. You can create custom templates using tools like Canva that your customers can download and utilize inside of apps like Good Notes

These templates can be sold directly through the Sell Downloadable Files Koji. For selling multiple templates, use the free Sell Digital Products storefront. 

2. Video Courses

One of the most thoughtful gifts one can give is an experience or a new skill. Instead of scrambling to put together a limited holiday line, why not craft a video course customers can purchase for themselves, friends or family? 

Whether you’re sharing an exercise routine, decoding your painting style, or detailing your family’s baking secrets, you can create and monetize a course with the Sell Video Courses Koji. 

3. Festive Craft Patterns 

Do you already have a sewing pattern drafted up for your family’s Christmas pajamas? Do you have some DIY craft instructions designed to keep the kids busy during holiday get-togethers? Why not turn some of your patterns into profit?

You can sell craft patterns, instructions, or printouts with the Sell Digital Products Koji. 

4. Gift Tag or Card Printables

Calling all graphic designers and wordsmiths! We all run out of words sometimes. Help alleviate some of the holiday pressure for your customers by selling gift tags or card printouts with Sell Digital Products

7. Commissioned Portraits

You can always use Koji to sell prints or other art with Shopify. However, the holidays usually come with an increased demand for custom creations. Consider using Sell A Service to offer up custom commissions or portraits of families or pets. 

8. Travel Guides

The holiday season is full of traveling. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to monetize your travel advice. Sell travel plans through Thatch or create an E-book for your favorite secret spots in your city. 

9. Lightroom Presets 

Help your customers polish off the perfect holiday photo by selling custom Lightroom Presets. Sell one or sell a bundle at a price of your choosing. 

10. Gift Guides

There’s nothing like your Grandma’s cookie recipe! Spread the joy and share some of your favorite recipes on social media. You can sell recipe E-books with Sell E-books & PDFs or one-off recipes with Provecho

12. Consultations 

Are you a mentor at heart? Make sure you’re offering consultation through Sell a Service this holiday season. You could also cast a wider net and host your own paid webinar with Link Locker for your customers. 

13. Downloadable Game Printouts

One of the best parts of the holiday season is that it comes with a lot of downtime. Help your customers spend more quality time with their loved ones by building your own downloadable game printouts! These could be as simple as thought-provoking questions to ask family and friends, or a more elaborate challenge related to your niche. Sell your printouts with Sell Downloadable Files

14. Exclusive Audio 

The holiday season comes with a ton of festive music. Monetize your own renditions directly to fans with the Locked Audio storefront. Not a musical virtuoso? You can also use Audio Inbox to sell personalized messages or advice to customers. 

Be sure to carry some of your new digital product offerings into the new year. Don’t forget that there’s no limit to how many Kojis you create, so feel free to experiment with different versions and editions of your digital products. Happy holidays from Koji!
