How to Earn Money By Selling Digital Products
Build a new income stream with this easy Gumroad tutorial
Hello dear friend,
Did you know the quickest way you can add another income stream is to build and sell a digital product?
If you’re wondering what’s a digital product and how you can create one, this newsletter is for you.
A digital product can be anything that compiles your specialized knowledge in any niche and presents it in an easily digestible way to your target audience. A digital product can be in the form of an ebook or PDF file, a series of videos, an automated email course, a podcast, and so on.
If you’re wondering, “But how can I sell a digital product? Even if I build it successfully, I still need a website to sell it, or give away 30% of my income to Amazon,” then don’t worry. I’ve got you covered.
A great online platform where you can build beautiful landing pages without needing to pay a single penny or learn to code is Gumroad. The platform is so intuitive and user-friendly, that you can create an account and start selling with a few clicks.
Here’s what the process looks like:
Register with your name, profile picture, and a short bio on Gumroad.
Go to your dashboard and select “New product.”
Add a cover image and logo of your product. You can design your own images or use their Unsplash plugin to add beautiful duty-free images.
Write the landing page copy. Gumroad has tools to bold, italicize, underline text, and make the copy look more appealing by adding lists, tables, images, etc.
Once the landing page is ready, select “Product,” and add your digital product. It can be a downloadable PDF, video, or audio file, or you can also upload the files at some other place like Dropbox, Google Drive, etc, and redirect buyers to that link once the payment is made.
Hit “Publish,” and you’re all set to start earning money.
Note that I create this newsletter for you every week with lots of love. If you’d like to support me, here’s a link to buy me a book.
If you found this letter useful, don’t forget to forward this to a friend or ask them to sign up for my newsletter. It’s free, and you know me, I only send valuable content.
That’s all from my end today. I’ll see you again soon. Till then, stay strong. Keep smiling and be awesome.
