3 Gumroad Courses That Will Help You Build a More Profitable Newsletter Business
Grow your subscribers, write content like a pro, and build an automated money-making machine.
Gumroad is one of my favourite platforms as a creator.
If you wanted to bootstrap a business, you could run it completely from Gumroad — all for free.
It allows you to:
- Host digital files and courses.
- Accept customer payments.
- Collect subscribers.
- Send emails.
The only cost is a 10% fee when you make a sale of your digital products.
If you don’t have a digital product, you can still use the website to collect emails and send a regular newsletter to your subscribers until you get around to building one.
Gumroad also has a library of awesome products from talented creators you can study to learn new skills.
Here are three of my favourites for anyone who wants to start and grow a profitable newsletter business.
