$13k in Google Sheet Tutorials

Andrew Kamphey @AndrewKamphey

Better Sheets is nearing 700 members. WOW!
at 690, that's over $13,000 in revenue. (not profit)

It's getting hot in here.

And that's a lot of customers.

Going to be going into build mode soon.

I honestly wonder how much this can help people start their projects, keep their teams going, and better their lives.

I didn't do this alone. AppSumo has been a great partner, driving now well over 90% of sales.

YouTube has been a rollercoaster of a platform to upload videos to.

Substack has been almost useless and at times has even made me regret starting a newsletter for this project. I'll be doing some major changes to the blog and landing page and basically abandoning the newsletter for a few weeks while I focus on paying customers.

I will however, schedule some emails to go out about existing videos on YouTube. Hopefully that satiates the hungry substackers for daily google sheet tips.

    this is just a membership portal? with videos? it isnt an actual app?

    1. 1

      It is not an app. It is videos. Got a searchable database and some mini courses.

    Andrew, where do you host your classes?

      1. 1

        Sorry I wasn't clear. I meant do people watch the classes meaning do you use a CMS like Teachable or something?

        1. 1

          made my own search for members with alogia.

      What will I be interested in? The course is open ended. no LMS has been able to give me the features so far I want.

      1. 1

        Well Andrew, we want you to help us shape the platform into a more realistic solution for what is missing in an LMS system. We are evolving into an interactive type of learning, we are very open to your ideas, we want to talk to you for 15minutes.

    Grats on the numbers but what's your expenses?

    1. 1

      Loom, Gsuite, Carrd.

      A percent goes to AppSumo for each sale they do.
      Gumroad takes a percent for each sale I do there.

      I'm paying for Memberspace as well, $25 per month now. will be creating a monthly plan by end of year.

      All In, I'd say less than $500 a year.

    Congrats on the revenue!

    YouTube has been a rollercoaster of a platform to upload videos to.

    What problems have you had with it?

    1. 1

      They marked 2 videos as against guidelines so far. Both completely wrong. I appealed in both cases. 1 never got a response. the 2nd which is harsher since I can't upload for a week.. they reviewed, and found it was fine. And then minutes after it going live again, took it down and marked me again. I had to appeal a 2nd time.

      Robots be crazy!
