Final cut pro X is one of the most popular video editing programs on the market. With its user-friendly interface, it has changed its appeal from being a program aimed at the semi-professional video editor to more the consumer editor who wants to work from a laptop or basic apple desktop computer. Gone are the days of needing knowledge of storage bins for files and the user needing to understand not so user-friendly linear timeline layouts.

Of course, selling digital products online is a great way to make passive income. Once you have taken the time to create a great product it will sit online forever and continue to sell. Thus becoming an income producing asset. We all know that making money in photography and video is difficult. That’s why having items that sell even when you are sleeping is so important.

Beyond selling the templates on your own website you can choose to sell them in an online marketplace like Envato. With Envato’s author program you can sell in both their marketplace and other marketplaces like your website for a lower commission or sell exclusively with Envato for a higher commission.
