Buy and Sell Digital Products with ContentMixi

Are you a terrific web designer, but you’re having trouble finding clients on a freelance basis? Maybe you’re a website or business owner and you’re on the hunt for a new WordPress theme. In either case, it may be worthwhile to consider the prospect of a digital marketplace.

You’ve probably seen some similar places as ContentMixi, but there are a couple of nice highlights in this review that may catch your eye.

A Digital Marketplace

It’s still in its beta stage, but ContentMixi is completely ready to go, both for buyers and for sellers. You don’t have to register for two separate accounts for these purposes either, as a single account can handle both roles in this marketplace for digital products.

The general layout and design of ContentMixi is straightforward and easy to understand. From the main page, you are presented with a grid of items from the “web templates” category. This grid shows you a thumbnail of the available website template, the regular price, a link to read more about it, and a link to buy it.

Near the top of the page are a series of tabs for the main categories: web templates, logos, content, e-book, illustration, and animation. Upon clicking on any of these categories, you can see the sub-categories that are available. For example, you can find things like Joomla templates and newsletter templates under the web template category.

Pricing ranges accordingly, but it seems that the vast majority of standard website templates are in the $30 range. The assumption is that the designers and artists can resell these templates to as many buyers as they desire.

Full websites, which presumably come pre-populated with content too, are typically a little more. The car website shown above is $40, for example.

Branding with Web-Friendly Logos

Buying a website design that will likely also be used by someone else isn’t ideal, but it’s acceptable for the majority of site owners so long as they make some minor alterations. However, I do find it strange that you can buy premade logos on ContentMixi as well.

These already have names of fake companies on them, so they won’t do you any good unless you alter them to use the name of your company. At that point, why would you be paying $45 or more for the download? I suppose you could alter the logos, just like you do with a site template, but it may be more worthwhile to get an original logo at that point.

Three Ways to Make Money with ContentMixi

So, what if you want to make some money from ContentMixi, but you don’t have an artistic bone in your body? Well, there are two other ways that you can get in on some cash.

First, you may be interested in the affiliate program. For all new clients that you refer to ContentMixi, you earn a lifetime 20% commission on all purchases. The referral program lets you send visitors to any page on the site too, so designers can earn twice on a single transaction. Payment is made by PayPal with a minimum threshold of $50.

Second, all the blog owners in the audience can choose to participate in the review contest. Write a review of ContentMixi on your site, following the linking requirements outlined on the contest page, and you’ll have a chance to win some cash. There will be three winners in all, receiving $200, $60, and $20. The contest runs until December 10 with the winner being announced on Christmas Day.

In the end, it seems that ContentMixi is a solid marketplace. Some of the categories, like content (articles) and e-book, aren’t as strong as the web template category, but there could be some substantial growth in the future. The affiliate program sounds like it could be quite lucrative too.

    Sound really interesting, is it possible to sell service like registration access to membership site like on ClickBank? When you say you can sell “digital products” is it possible to sell articles ? Thanks for sharing this John.

    1. It looks like you have to sell a product that can be downloaded and I don’t think yuo can download a membership to a site.

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        Well, you’re right in some way, how about the access to the membership site is written into an ebook with different code for each members? lol sounds too much work to do.

    2. nada says:

      yeah it is really interested

    3. nada says:

      John is the champ

  2. Andi Klin says:

    That’s sounding great. Another one to help people from John Chow. Thank You John.

    1. Yeah, John always help others while help him self. 😉

      1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

        Haha agree! But it was Michael Kwan who helped John to write and publish this post. lol! 😉

      2. nada says:

        sure, john help others to help him self

  3. The pre-fab logo is just too off-the-shelf to my liking. I suppose it will afford totally tech-averse people acces to an internet based endeavour, but I personally feel that some things acan not be template driven.

    1. jason says:

      maybe the template logo is just a starting point for ideas for the final logo to save iterations…..if the designer has the raw design file, it will be easier to make changes for the final version of the logo….

      1. No, these are pre-made and on the shelf, ready to go! JNust go click on tthe premade logos link in this post. If it is in a vector format one could buy one of these logos and then expand on it, absolutely, but if you have that kind of a skill level you wont buy, but just use components of the design you like in your own design.

  4. I found interesting the part about the logo, maybe one day my blog does not need one, and I’m terrible at design. Hug!

    1. A logo should be unique as it symbolizes you, your brand, your blog. Off the shelf logos can’t do that, try 19dollarlogos, they are reasonable priced AND unique, SY

    2. nada says:

      i think you can find free logo rather than designed by your self

  5. EarningStep says:

    nice site . this is really a heaven for blogger that want to find new stuff for new content or chance some old looking blog…or logo

  6. Dean Saliba says:

    Very good review Michael.

    Sadly I’m still against paying out money for a theme. I’m not earning enough to warrant spending money on a theme when I can get a free one and custome it to the hilt. 🙂

    Maybe ina year or two.

    1. I hope it take you less than 2 years to be able to afford a custom theme.

      1. nada says:

        2 years is very long time

  7. Jeff Caceres says:

    Hello Michael!

    Thanks for sharing this unique digital product marketplace to us. I have no such progress in selling my digital products to Payloadz, not even a single one. Maybe this one could help in order to sell my MRR and PLR eBooks that I have downloaded from a membership site.


    1. It looks like they only have 2 ebooks at the present time, so I don’t think they’re going to replace Clickbank any time soon.

    Another sponsored post, woooooow!

    1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

      No wrong for a sponsored post if the review is good and useful for us. 🙂

      Also, whenever you see MichaelKwan publish the post, that’s a sponsored review (I guess).

  9. Peter-Jan says:

    Michael, do you know if John is working/available today? I sent him an email on Friday with a forward today and have not heard back from him. I have ordered a review and wanted to get in touch with you (assuming you will do the review).

  11. The affiliate program seems interesting. It is because i can affiliate something that i like in that contentmiki. I will check it!

    1. nada says:

      you need to try this

  12. Kevin Pasco says:

    I love the idea behind this type of site. Very, very cool. Maybe this will be “the next big thing” 😉

  13. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    Looks great! So it’s something like TTZMedia? Seems that there are more and more marketplace like this on the internet, good for consumer and seller. 😀

  14. Great….I’m always looking for new ways make money and I like the fact that you keep getting commissions from your referrals.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    1. nada says:

      keep update to John
      he has many ways to make money online

  15. I think Contentmixi seems a great digital marketplace and such marketplaces for making money online are increasing gradraully. Good to use both side – selling and buying.

  16. I looked again, and I still can’t find to other similar market places, can somebody please enlighten me how / why this stands out? SY
