If you've got printables, you're probably wondering how you can make money from them. Of course, you can sell them on your own website and incorporate them into your courses…as we teach in our Fast & Simple Course Creation program.
But if you want to send them as stand-alone products, you've got plenty of options like Etsy, Gumroad, Creative Fabrica and more.
In the above video, Yusef shows you how to get started with selling your printables on these 3 marketplaces. This video is one of the extra tutorials created for our Fast & Simple Course Creation students.
We hope you'll find it useful. Watch the video above or read the tutorial below.
Tutorial for Selling on Etsy, Gumroad and Creative Fabrica
In this video, we are going to talk about how to sell printables as standalone content whether you are new to selling printables or you're looking for new platforms or ways to sell printables.
When it comes to selling printables, you essentially have two options: one, you can either sell printables on your own website, or two, you can sell them on a third-party platform – like Etsy, Gumroad or Creative Fabrica.
If you choose to sell your printables on your own website, then you have more pricing power as opposed to if you sell on a third-party platform. Then, you have to kind of match the prices of all the products. You have to do your research and find similar products and find out what they're selling for.
And if you're selling on a third-party platform like Etsy, Gumroad or Creative Fabrica, you need to choose your platform wisely. Etsy is very popular when it comes to selling printables and is probably one of the most popular ones, but it's also one of the most competitive platforms to breakthrough when it comes to selling printables.
Gumroad, is also another option you can use to sell your printables. It is less competitive when it comes to printables, but it also could mean that there are less buyers there compared to Etsy. But it's still an attractive option that you can choose to sell your printables.
Creative Fabrica pretty much like Gumroad in a sense that it is an attractive place to sell, but maybe less attractive in terms of how many customers are there. It is less competitive compared to Etsy, but that in itself might present an opportunity for you, because you will have the chance to stand out amongst the crowd.
And here comes a very important tip to apply if you choose to sell your product on a third-party platform; make sure to include in the download folder a link to invite the buyer to claim one of your opt-in freebies you created to promote one of your products or courses.
And the reason why you want to do that is because you want to build your e-mail list. You want to invite your customers who buy your product from Etsy, Gumroad or Creative Fabrica, whichever platform you choose, to get to get an additional product for free, which is the often the freebie they receive in exchange for their e-mail address.
That way you will build your e-mail list and eventually you will become independent of third-party platforms. Because you've built the e-mail list, now you can reach out to them for free. It is essentially the best way to build an online presence.
And here is a bonus tip on selling printables on your own website; if you choose to sell printables on your own website, then offer a course or whatever product that you have or an additional product that you would like to sell as a bump offer, to add extra value to the customer.
For example, if you have made printables on “goal setting” and you also teach a course on “Five Steps to Achieve Your Goals in 2023”, then why don't you just include that course as a bump offer to add extra value to the customer and potentially generate more sales. It doesn't necessarily have to be a course, it could be any other product that you would like to upsell them on to add extra value to the course.
