Simple tools = big $$

I love simple tech tools, especially ones that can make money for me.

Two of my favorites are Gumroad (not an affiliate link because they don't have an affiliate program as of now) and Payhip (that is my affiliate link).



Did I make my feelings clear enough? :-)

Here's why I love them:

1. They do not charge a monthly fee, unlike other platforms such as Podia, Thinkific or Teachable (I have used all of these and am currently using Teachable, but I'm getting off of there at the end of 2022). Instead, they take a percentage of each sale.

2. These platforms are easy to use. Meaning, you don't have to be tech savvy at all. 

3. They are FUN to use! You literally upload what you're selling, create the description, upload a product image, set the price, and then share the link everywhere to sell your wonderful things!


There are subtle differences between Gumroad and Payhip.

As of this writing, Payhip has created a more robust way to deliver online courses, for example.

But gosh, these platforms are incredible! You can sell almost anything: from coaching, to online courses, to physical products that you ship to people, and everything in between.

So many people hesitate to sell digital products or courses because they think it's too complicated.

Gumroad and Payhip make this simple, simple, simple.

I have sold thousands and thousands of dollars worth of products using these two platforms.

You may be wondering why I don't use one or both of these platforms anymore. Fair question. 

When I set up my new shop in spring 2022, I thought about using Gumroad or Payhip for it.

In the end, I decided to go with Shopify because I wanted more control over the design. 

But who knows? I may go back to Gumroad or Payhip in the future because I still love them. 

And I still may sell the occasional product from those sites, too. I almost can't resist using them because they're so much fun!

This is about FREEDOM.

Freedom from the clock.

Freedom from 1:1 coaching or consulting. 

Freedom to literally earn money while you sleep, while you're on vacation.

Freedom to create something once and sell it over and over again.

Go make your first dollar from a digital product and you'll be hooked, too.
