As I was making more products, I kept my eye on the statistics which were climbing steadily. That was encouraging feedback and I kept at it.
For a while everything I added was free. I added my first paid resource in late October when I was 1.5 months into building the store.
Then, 2 weeks later, I was super excited when I made the first sale on this platform. This was exciting and let me know people found value in what I was doing. So I made more similar resources, and sure enough, I sold some more! It was working, it was great!
