Selling digital products can change your life...
Oh my gosh – THANK YOU for your comments and questions on last week’s post! I’m getting more and more excited about launching this book and based on all your responses I’m not alone.
If you’ve missed the last few emails the long story short is––three years ago I had a discovery that changed my life: your income doesn’t have to be attached to your time! (in case you missed it CLICK HERE - you’re gonna want to see it).
We’ve also talked about my biggest business “secret”:
Minimum viable product
All that means is that your first products don’t need to be a perfect products.
This way, you can put out more products in less time, and THEN use feedback from your customers to make future products better.
Selling digital products on Creative Market totally changed the game for me and is now what I do for a living – I believe you can do it too.
In 2016, I wrote this blog post about getting your shop noticed on Creative Market and how I took a failing product to a successful product overnight.
A shop owner reached out to me after reading and told me it completely transformed her store. She took what I taught in that short post, applied it to her business, and was able to make a living selling fonts on Creative Market less than a year later.
I don’t take any credit for her results – she’s the one who went out and did the work!
In other words, this works if you work!
A lot of you have asked: “Can you really make a living selling digital products on Creative Market?”
Short answer - YES. I was able to make a living within my first two months of creating digital products. The caveat was that I worked very hard, I failed a lot, I made products that sold amazing and products that sold nothing at all. I invested a lot of time into getting better at my craft and I just kept going.
The promising reality is that you will absolutely get out of this what you put into it.
Selling digital products is an investment. And it’s worth it. I don’t think I was lucky – you can do this, too. You have to keep moving your feet and be willing to fail. But, it’s possible.
I want this for you:
You can have a life where your income isn’t tied to your hourly rate.
You can create a side-hustle or even a full-time job that helps fund the things you really want to do in life.
You can have the flexibility to make time for yourself and your family without the stress of losing the money those hours could bring in.
I’m not going to pretend you didn’t see an offer coming – you’re smart and you’ve gone through an email series before haha.
That’s why I wanted to make sure you got enough real value in this email series to go out and do something with your Creative Market shop or website right away.
For most of you, this will be enough to at least start to dabble in the world of selling digital products.
But, for those of you who are ready to make this your full-time hustle and give this all you’ve got, I’m releasing a resource manual for you that outlines selling digital products on Creative Market.
The Creative Market Manual is a 30,000 word, 95-page digital reference manual that outlines everything I've learned about selling digital products in the last three years.
It's a one-two punch of my learned experience, books I've read, and my bachelor's degree in Marketing.
It's like if someone wrote a textbook on how to create and sell digital design resources on Creative Market, while using universal principles you can apply to other selling platforms like your own website.
I’m only offering this manual for a limited time, so be on the lookout for my next email!
Excited to share this!
