Gumroad or Squarespace for book?

Hi IH,

I'm launching the book for careerswitchtocoding.com on the 30th and can't decide between these two options for it.

The site is already on Squarespace so I'm tempted to use that, however I'm wondering if I should use Gumroad as people are likely more familiar with it for downloadable content and they have their library to go back to as well.

Does anyone have thoughts on these two?


Which should I use for a downloadable book?
  1. Squarespace
  2. Gumroad

    Gumroad seems like a good option because you'll get the benefit of their SEO and your product will show up in their product search.

      Ah, that would be some good extra exposure for sure! thanks

      That's a good idea, then I could also add the Kindle button there where I do that as well.
