It’s time for another new course! This month: Gumroad!

When I first heard about Gumroad, I couldn’t even fathom what it was about. Is it about gum? roads? Gum on a road??

Fortunately, it’s neither of those. Gumroad is the easiest way to sell digital – and physical – products online. In one word? Amazing.

Gumroad takes all the hassle (I mean all of it) out of selling products online. You don’t have to worry about how to accept credit cards, or whether or not you can use PayPal, or even how to distribute the product to your customers. Gumroad takes care of all of it.

That means that the only thing you have to worry about is creating the actual product. You get more time to do the things you do best without worrying about the things you don’t care about.

Gumroad course on Food Blogger Pro

In this course, I take you through the super simple steps of creating an account, getting all set up, and publishing your first product. Then we look at how to get the product on your website and start your own affiliate program.

Yep, I said it. Gumroad has an in-house affiliate program! {{ cue happy dance }}

I’m really excited to share Gumroad with you because it will make your product-selling life so much easier. I’ve personally used it myself and really love the simplicity and ease of use. And I know you will, too!

  1. Will take a listen to Podcast #36. Never heard of using Gumroad. Maybe this is answered in the podcast, but are you able to set it up where anyone buying your e-book pays taxes?
