    I have the domain lemon-digital.co.uk which can be branded to pretty much anything digital, but looking for some ideas on what to use it for - mrs is away for the weekend and my 19 month old son is in bed so looking to be productive...

    what would you do and why?

    Sorry, @xploit I don't know anything about your background, i.e. whether or not you're a programmer or website developer, etc. for offering digital services (as opposed to products).

    The first thing that came to my mind was digital products, a digital store.

    If you have design skills, you could use it to advertise a design boutique, offering services to folks. You can beautify it with clean yellows, shades of yellows, simple but rich images without faux business people, etc... Of course, with an almost infinite number of folks also offering such services, it'd be hard to stand out.

    If you really wanted to, you could slap a plugin that lets visitors design their own business cards. That means drag and drop functionality, color/font/position changes, etc... The result can be exported to a PDF, which they can access after paying the site via simple PayPal. Charge five quid per design, and you're golden. But this is hardly a weekend type job.

    Or... you could.... sell lemons? Get this, you create a landing page showcasing the benefits of lemons. Overly professional and clean design, just for... lemons. In the pricing page, you can create a monthly subscription for them to purchase. Lowest plan - a lemon a week. Highest plan, a lemon a day. Then, in the testimonials section, show pics of people with their mouths wrinkled closed with tears in their eyes (like that Simpsons episode).

    An ebook perhaps?. That's a digital product, Write something related to your expertice, the subject must arouse interest to some potential niche. Take into account that. Build a landing page and offer there a free sample of the first chapter or something.

    Turn it into a review site for reporting failed digital products and then monetize it with the successful products that share the space.

    Nice, thinking outside that circle!

    90% of the people are on the internet for information. So you can give loads of free 'review' type content on that site then have about 10% selling your products (or even better become an affiliate of that product because you would have already gained the readers trust from your previous posts) just make sure the product you're an affiliate for is a product you yourself would want to purchase. People make the mistake of just slapping affiliate links around and hoping for the best.
    Only promote real value!

    Best of luck, keep us posted what you decided to do with the domain, you could always sell it for more money than you bought it for?

    @xploit , best is to partner or resell a other digital services. Like @azgold pointed know your strength and choose the broader are like ebooks / Web Software / reviewer / communication etc then go after which partner can give you a deal matching your strength .. valla you should have a working model to begin with what you love.

    Share your decision anyway! here .. Best wishes
