As, we dig deeper into Assets. Let’s define what is an Asset?

According to the words of Robert Kiyosaki: “Asset is something that will put money into your pocket.”

See, Asset requires to be nurtured. And, over a period, it will produce abundant fruits for us.

Now, let’s dig deeper into, how do we choose assets?

So, according to Robert Kiyosaki, there are 4 assets that will make us rich, the more we learn about them, better and faster results we will get. These 4 assets are:

1. Business

2. Real Estate

3. Papers, that is, Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds etc.

In this particular post, I will dig deeper into the No. 1 asset, called BUSINESS. And, since we are growing our online business, let’s explore DIGITAL ASSETS available for us.

TOP-8 Digital Assets

These are the Digital Assets, after getting set-up properly in our system, can potentially enhance our income and brings greater opportunities for us, as an online entrepreneur. These assets will bring out your true digital persona. And, these assets will work for you while you sleep. So, let’s explore them, one-by-one.

1. Website:

Our personal blog/website is our online home, where we can

  • sell our products,
  • advertise our own service
  • advertise other services we believe in.
  • Place good educational contents through our blog posts.
  • Put gifts and bonuses to subscribers. And so on.

Having a well-furnished online-home is an art to learn. So, start dreaming of your new online home and decorate with more innovative assets, as described below.

2. Landing Page:

It is a common scenario that people will find your website content through a google search. They will visit your website, browse your product and services. After their requirement is met, they are gone. You have no track record of your customers.

So, how to make your visitors to visit your website again and again?

By getting their e-mail addresses!

Remember, online businesses are done in your inbox.

Now, how to get e-mail addresses from your visitors?

Here comes the necessity of a landing page. You should provide a free gift such as PDF, video course or a live webinar, in order to provide desired value to your genuine visitors. Your visitors will give their email addresses to get their free gifts.

And, you will have them in your e-mail list, which is another asset, described below.

3. E-Mail List

Your e-mail list is your unshakable online asset. Through an e-mail list, you will have contact e-mails of all your customers who are interested to buy your products or avail your services. You can have multiple lists for different customer segments based on our different products. This list of your customers will be engaged with you for the long term. And, your list will grow significantly every single month. As your list grows, your business booms.

It’s been said that every $1 spent in e-mail marketing, generates $44 in returns. So, it’s a huge online asset.

4. Social Followers

As your influence grows, your social followers in social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and so on, will be your huge asset. People will appreciate your ideas and your influence will grow further.

5. E-Mail Sequence

In your overall e-mail list, there are people in different stages. Categories such as:

  • New Members, getting into your list
  • Members availing your different services A, B, or C. You need different email sequence for them.
  • For new announcements or launches.

6. Video Content and Digital Products

You can create good video content in your niche and arrange it in a course format. It will be your most valuable asset.

Your videos will work all the time, even while you are asleep.

If you are creating a video course, it is better to keep them in at least 2 part.

1st part can be your tripwire or low ticket product and 2nd part will be your core high-ticket product.

Russell Brunson’s book called “Expert’s Secrets” is a great tool to learn about the ultimate marketing of your digital products.

Being an online entrepreneur, having our own video content is an absolute must. They will work for you for years.

7. YouTube Channel

YouTube is the most popular website on the internet worldwide. It can build your credibility significantly and take it to the next level. According to studies, more than 5 Billion videos are watched on YouTube every single day. And, the majority of viewers falls in the age group of 18-49 years.

So, think about it, what you can offer so that people will find great value from your videos! Such that they will become addicted to them and wait for your next video. And, you will also enjoy creating your content.

8. Affiliate Products and Services

There are always many products and services that you use are wonderful and you should recommend them to others. For example below are some digital services I love:

  • Educational Programs (digital) by T. Harv Eker
  • Screencast-o-Matic software for video recording services
  • Scribd, for good online book reading and listening experience
  • Click Funnels for Capture pages
  • GetResponse for e-mail marketing
  • “Wealthy Affiliate” platform for becoming a successful online Entrepreneur

And, many more for various other purposes.

And, the best part of an Affiliate product is that most of them are monthly or yearly subscription based. So now and then you will keep getting the notifications of Affiliate Commissions received in your bank account. Therefore, affiliate marketing is a powerful asset good for all levels whether you are an absolute newbie or an experienced entrepreneur.

  5. I would have to agree that getting your visitor’s e-mail’s is very important for your business. It allows for retargeting of your audience. Growth within social media is key when it comes to building authority within your niche.  Youtube is kind of like social media when it comes to how important it is because you can leverage your videos to make sales. A great and educating article, I love it.

  6. I have actually resolved to take a bold Step in building an online business. This your article is very informative and I am happy to learn that you too are a great follower of rich dad author. The information you dropped here are really golden. I have not thought about social media followers as great asset.  Thank you. 

  7. Yes, I’m starting my journey in online entrepreneurship and I must say it’s very exciting, at the same time challenging. Actually, my interest in entrepreneurship started after reading a number of Robert Kiyosaki’s books, so I can relate very well to what you’re saying. 

    When I set up my online business, I did not really have a clear objective in mind and I know this is one of the major reasons why after almost 2 years, my business has not progressed significantly. You enumerated here the top 8 digital assets and looking at them, I am reminded once again my mistake of not building an email list during the early stages of my website.

    I just incorporated an opt-in form and a landing page a couple of months ago and looking at the results, I wished I listened to the people who never get tired of telling new online marketers that “the money is on the list.” 

    • Thanks, Alice, your feedback is much valuable. Yes, Robert Kiyosaki is my guru. I put my core learning first and always focuses on assets as my guru suggests, whether it’s physical or digital.:)

  8. This is a wonderful writeup and great post about financial digital assets for affiliates, to me this is not just for affiliate marketers but for anyone who wants to invest and make money through legal means and hardwork. Its amazing how you shed enough spotlight on these points for your readers. You did a good job. Keep it up. 

  9. This is a great list of assets for online entrepreneurs. It’s very important to grow our business by having a very healthy list of audience. This can be achieved by getting emails from everyone that comes to your page. This way, you can keep reaching your audience weekly and keep reminding them of the value your business offers. 

  10. Thanks for this article about online asset. Most to get time I think about all online asset as a business simply because they are part of my day to day life, but indirectly reading this article there are really my asset.but directly or indirectly the profit of your asset online depend on you take time to monitor it as an asset
