But here’s the thing, if you are going to go through all this work to set up this stream of income, nurture and grow it, I want you to make sure you are legally legit. And prepared for any legally sticky situations that may arise along the way… (Think trademarks, people stealing your course, you know the drill *everyone’s worst nightmare*).

Worth Noting

"When you set up shop online in a digital product e-commerce platform, you need to have two big things. First, you need to have website terms and conditions, and you also need to have a privacy policy. These are absolute necessities that you need when you start selling things on your website."


"Make sure that you're reading through their terms and conditions, and you're paying specific attention to commission kickbacks. Because every affiliate program is different regarding the amount of commission they offer their accounts. A good starting point is anywhere from about 10 to 30%"

"You're also going to have clauses related to no refunds due to the immediate nature of the digital product delivery. You will need to have things regarding privacy considerations for online purchases made through credit cards. So of course the third party payment processor that you're working with, you just want some language in there surrounding what is encrypted."
