Selling Ebooks Direct to Your Readers

Panzer and I were out in the catosphere today looking for more marketing help. We stopped in at the Let's Get Digital blog to see if David Gaughran had any ideas.

Turns out David found a new site called Gumroad.  Gumroad allows you to set up your own store and sell direct to your readers. It is free and simple to set up your store there. They will handle all of your sales work for you. How great is that?

This means no Amazon or Smashwords taking a commission from your sales. Gumroad does charge a per sale fee, so it's not free to sell there. There is one disadvantage to using them for your store: they do not accept Paypal.

Panzer says tootle on over to David Gaughran's blog and read Selling Ebooks Direct. See what you think about Gumroad.

  1. The important thing about viral ebook marketing is that it takes on a life of its own. As people start spreading your ebook virally around the Internet, more and more people become aware of you, your company and your brand.
