Hey Andrew, congratulations on your (first?) novel! I was considering selling detailed writing prompt ideas on gumroad. Do you think that would be a good idea? Cheers, Sacha.
Thanks! It's my second.
and I have no idea! Go talk to people! It wouldn't be a good fit for me personally but maybe other people that write like that kind of thing?

I am selling my Heroku-like infrastructure guide 👉 https://gumroad.com/l/ootso
I am just getting started (https://gumroad.com/linguahabit), having recently signed up to a lifetime deal on designrr.io. I plan to release relatively low-cost eBooks (pdf/kindle) for English learners - grammar, vocabulary, style guides, examination tips, language learning strategies, in between teaching online.

We started our first Gumroad prodcut (an eBook about product-market fit) 2 weeks ago.
There's no eBook and I still have to define the content outline. Yet, we've made +50 sales.
I'm posting more details in the next hour in a separated post on IH ;)
Just finished writing it.
Thanks for this post @rosiesherry. We have been considering increasingly to join the Gumroad community for our product too. I guess, we will start off with it at the end of this week.
Great question @rosiesherry! Here's my book on building a highly effective brand: https://gum.co/unique-melanie-goel
I'm also looking for people who'd like to be affiliates.
https://gum.co/funphp I built a screencast about Fun PHP Project: Building a Login Form
Just released a new product https://gumroad.com/l/LtatR/oioi-25-start
More info https://oioi.rocks/
Yes, I have a product that is now in presale for an early-bird price of $4.99. It will be shipping on November 16, 2020. I'm creating this as part of the 14 Day Product challenge.
The book is called "Type Less, Say More", and it is a guide to quickly get you started on the path to productivity with text expander shortcuts. The goal is that people create their first text expander snippet the first day, so they immediately begin saving time and getting value out of the guide.
The guide will also ship with a .textexpander and .xlsx files that you can use to easily import or copy/paste 100+ shortcuts that I created.
Here's the product page:

I'm currently working on my third product during the Gumroad 14 day challenge. It'll be an ebook on workflow automations in iOS and macOS.
The colouring book is such a cool idea! love it.
Thanks @neats29! It was a ton of fun and a nice way to do something different. Learned a lot and my kids enjoyed it as well :)
I created a Reddit-style type website (Gumrank) to list Gumroad courses and ranked by customer votes and reviews. If you want to be listed, kindly let me know. https://gumrank.pory.app
I sell comic books, zines, and merch over at https://gzscomix.com.
Planning on expanding that with some collaborators and doing some how to books on writing, DIY Publishing on a shoestring budget, and a few other ideas.
It's hard breaking through with sales on what I currently offer. I've got small email list going so far (just over 300 peeps). I feel like it's honestly just a matter of time and finding the correct places to market the work too eager readers.
I'm very happy with the whole thing so far.

Hi. I’m an IT PRO with 20+ years of experience in managing Information Technology departments for big companies.
My goal now, is to help my fellows with right-to-the-point short e-books.
As the name suggests, each e-book will take about 10 minutes to read and provides enough information to start using.
For now my first e-book is still for free because I'm looking for feedback.

I wrote a book + screencast series on ADHD.
(actual landing page: https://adhdpro.xyz/)
I have Spring Boot and Microservices book that I sold for free. More than 600 people have downloaded the book https://gumroad.com/yogsma#JwOXf.
The reason for selling it for free was that I wrote the book back in 2017 and I didn't know gumroad, so I had sold it for free when I had launched in 2017.
I'm currently writing an ebook called "Learn Ionic React" - Learn to build cross platform mobile apps using the Ionic Framework and ReactJS.
You can Pre-Buy here;
I'm currently a mobile team lead in my company and I lead all projects and the development for all of our mobile apps. I developed a full mobile framework using Ionic and ReactJS. I'm condensing my knowledge and expertise into an information-busting ebook with accompanying files and private videos.
Shocker, I do! https://gum.co/uZPZU

Using for copyipsum.com, a landing page that shows you how to write unignorable web copy.
👉 gumroad.com/l/dwLmAh So I created a web copywriting crash course for bootstrapping biz owners.
Copy Ipsum is free and shows you how to structure your copy and gives you basic copywriting guidelines for landing pages / home pages.
My web copywriting crash course goes deeper. It teaches all the copywriting and psychology basics you need to know so you can write unignorable words that can help you sell more online and attract more profits than a donut shop attracts cops.
This crash course is based on my experience writing copy both in ad agency roles, as well as for startups I co-founded.
Launched it in August, didn't promote it much, and so far 26 sales ($1,309 total).

I presented the ebook through a thread on Twitter and and has had a warm welcome 😄
Already 2 sales!
We are using it for Frontendor UI (Create landing pages by copy-paste).
So far, we sold 70+ copies and got 14 ratings. We are looking to migrate to another platform because Gumroad has one major downside: people can buy without having an account or forcing them to use a real email, and this makes it nearly impossible for us to notify some customers with new updates.

Not yet but i have an account, loads of people using it now and is in trend? Since the recession/pandemic times
This one includes a 50% off for fellow IH-ers. It's about learning docker. But not really focusing on it, since my current audience is not really docker oriented. Neither I want it to be. This is my first Gumroad experience, I wanted to check how it goes. Most copies were sold because of this reddit post
How it's going? Well, I've earned like $150-200, so not bad.
I don't plan to continue actively selling it, but rather to create an info product that is more aligned with my current audience.
I have an ebook for sale at Gumroad, Space Apps for Android.
I've been using the platform as a creator for less than a couple of weeks, so I don't have much to say on how the product is going other than there have been no sales so far. But the product description doesn't look so bad.
This comment has been voted down. Click to show.
Do you use Gumroad Discover? My impression is customers go the other way around, i.e. they land on a Gumroad product page coming from the creator's site or funnel. So the customers don't usually get to see the bazaar.
I actually thought Discover was relatively unknown.
No, I just look on Twitter, everyone and their cousin is selling you something ;)
This is not so much a Gumroad issue as something happening online at large. You probably see many Gumroad links as a side effect of the platform being well thought out and picking up steam.
Yeah agreed: mine was more of a critique of the content sold on it, rather than the platform's architecture by the way...
Is that something bad?
To me personally it is, because I'm getting inundated with the same "stuff" over and over...
Too much noise not enough signal
Well, then is something personal, an opinion but not a fact.
yes, that's why mine is a comment and not an article in the New York times :)
