This Is How I Made $23,000 On Gumroad Selling Digital Products
I didn’t believe it at first.
But I kept seeing stories fill my feed on Medium. Everyone was talking about Gumroad. Like it was a money-printing machine.
I thought they were all full of it. Yet, Gumroad was always in the back of my mind.
As a lifelong entrepreneur, I’m always looking for new ways to make money. And my favorite ways to make money are where I do little to no work and make a killing.
And Gumroad was looking like one of those killer opportunities.
I Needed Expert Advice From A Pro
So, I asked my friend if it was a good idea.
I won’t tell you his real name, because he’s Internet famous. But it rhymes with Latt Millywhite.
One afternoon, a few months back, I phoned him up.
“Hey man, what are your thoughts on Gumroad?”
“It’s a gold mine,” he said.
“Really?” I asked, not convinced.
“Yes, I’m crushing it. Selling printable stickers for kids.”
“How much have you made?”
“I just cleared fifty thousand last month,” he said casually.
“US dollars?” I asked.
“No, pounds, man.”
“Wow, that’s like sixty-five thousand dollars.”
“I know. And I’ll probably double that this month,” he added.
I was in shock. Had he really made that much money? From Gumroad?
“Look, it’s easy. You just create a digital product, set a price, and post it on Gumroad. They take a small cut and then you get paid.”
“That’s it?” I asked, still not convinced.
“Yep, that’s it,” he said. “I’m telling you, it’s a gold mine.”
He was a genius, after all. Always getting into the hot new money-making trends before anyone else. So I figured if Latt Millywhite could do it, I could too.
