I just got my first paying customer for this info product I created. This came from sharing it on an online community.
Felt good that I finally cross the penny gap. But what are ways to grow it after the initial "launch"?
GONG! awesome, great job.
Here's a suggested gameplan for you to find your next 10 customers:
Merci, Victor! All actionable pointers. I started getting on 15-minute chats with my prospects this week. Will see how this goes :)
Also expanding online communities to look.
Congrats on the milestone!
I am sure you have already tried doing something - will you share with us what's been done? What results did it bring?
Thanks! The initial $10 order is still just the only order I have: https://gumroad.com/l/CodeFun
I have since spoken with 15+ people from the target audience to understand more about their needs.
I started running FB ads two days ago. The "View content" conversion was OK, but no purchase conversion yet.
That's AMAZING, John, congrats!
Here are some questions that can help you generate ideas:
Thanks a lot, Stephanie! Great questions to think about.
Just shared it on Twitter in addition to my initial Reddit post, and the response seems OK so far :)
Congrats, now it's time to invest more time on it I guess 😜
Awesome, congratulations !!!
Although I don't yet have the experience, I would say just keep going. Keep making great work, great content, and most importantly, showing up !
Now it's time to get drunk! :D
but for people to help you grow you need to provide more details like: What is the product? who are you targeting?
Oh right, oops! 😅
I launched a mini-course (pre-order for now) to help beginners who are struggling/losing motivation with learning programming: https://gumroad.com/l/CodeFun
Initially shared it indirectly in a r/learnprogramming post on Reddit. Got some initial traffic, but it was already the largest community of my target audience I know. Now I am trying to figure out where else to share.
mmm, I suggest you try community like dev.to
also on twitter the hashtags #100DaysOfCode #CodeNewbie are popular and many new developers are using them.
You could also try https://www.producthunt.com/ if you feel you can handle the traffic/orders
Great ideas! thanks guys 🙏
