My first Shopify revenue!! ($5.98)

Anthony Diké @antdke

Yesterday, I tried something new.

I opened up a Shopify store for my newsletter.

A few days ago, a reader asked me if I could create wallpapers for the newsletter brand.

It sounded like a good idea, so I made them.

I honestly wasn't expecting much when I plugged the store at the end of my most recent issue. And yesterday, 2 orders already.

(my tweet about it)

Going Forward

I figure that I'll use the Shopify store to house other digital products that I'll sell in the future: e-books, etc.

And as long as I continue to put out great content like this, then there will always be traffic going to the store.

Let's see what the future brings.

    Congrats! Very clever! Never would have thought of that as a content site. Any ideas on the next digital product you might sell?

      thanks man! it’ll most likely be a book about a specific product development topic

      for Ex:

      “How to improve your creativity when building products and having ideas”

      “Best practices for Microcopy (UX copywriting)”
