How I am supposed to sell this?

Rajan Verma (Aarvy) @aarvy

Ohk, so this pandemic time I spent most of my time learning and trying new things under 2 domains: Programming Skills & Marketing.
In simple terms, I browse the internet all day for 7 months. I used to get amazed every time whenever I find a new subdomain under "google.com" e.g. ai.google .

During the process, because each and every subdomain has tons of different things to offer. Just out of curiosity I started noting down each one on the Trello board whenever I see a new subdomain under it. It took me around 20 days when the list crosses 100+ working subdomains of google.
Each subdomain offering tons of tools and challenges and information to grow and improve as a person or company.

I thought to put it on sale for 1$-2$ as it might help someone else.
So I divided these sites into 8 categories and used a canva to create a 4 pages cheatsheet.

I put it on Gumroad but still have no clue why anyone should buy it. (To date I got only 2 sales coz of luck). Any inputs are welcome.

I have also created a 1 min read article around it on medium.

    @aarvy From my experience of building ruttl.com, here's my one-liner opinion for you-

    "You need to provide much more value to the people"

    What I mean is that sure, it took a look of efforts to curate the list, but you need to invest more time to build an even larger list and start approaching people one on one.

    One of the best ways you might want to start getting sales is through jumping into the DM's on twitter with influencers. If you can show them why its valuable AND super cheap, I'm sure you will start seeing results.

      100% agreed until "super cheap"

      A have tried to create a book to explain what benefit you can get inside each and every link. The book grows more than 60 pages while explaining only the first 40 domains. I skipped that in middle then. That just doesn't seem will work for me

      Well, Ruttl looks promising. I have joined the waitlist. How long it will take to launch? Also, the video was a screenshot or you have made it using an after-effect kind of software The way it is animating is very fluent.

        @aarvy Thanks for the feedback! The video you were referring to, has been made using After Effects.

        Currently, ruttl is in beta phase with people testing out the product. I will be launching the product very soon. If you are interested in using the product as soon as possible, do follow the linkedin page to stay tuned!

          Do you have a team or alone?

          1. 1

            I have a team. I run a product design agency called Brucira.

    I put it on Gumroad but still have no clue why anyone should buy it. (To date I got only 2 sales coz of luck). Any inputs are welcome.

    You hand them content for $2, they can turn it into tweet storms, video, even a book with more details and sell again.

    Oh I missed the actual question, "How I am supposed to sell this?".
    IDK but you may ask your customers why they bought and build upon that.

    Make it more detailed, share one by one on social media. Convert it into content as you did on medium and keep going. But does it worth for $2 minus the fees.

    And to be fair, those who interested in exploring, possibly knows how to google.

      Thanks @anilkilic. I guess this stuff is just for curious people, I am sure you can't find whole list of google sites just by random searching on google. You may find google products list but not the domains/areas of thier working.

      A have tried to create a book to explain what benefit you can get inside each and every link. The book grows more than 60 pages while explaining only the first 40 domains. I skipped that in middle then. That just doesn't seem will work for me.

          Yeah, do let me know if you get that and the time you have spent on it. 😃

          1. 1

            I believe you've missed the link.

            1. 1

              Ohhh. Lol.. That's great. 😝😝 I accept my defeat.

              1. 1

                lol, thanks to you I found some interesting sites. ;)
