I’d like to change things up a bit this week by sharing news of a new marketing tool about which I recently read. It’s from a startup company, and I believe its potential is enormous!
Gumroad was developed by Sahil Lavingia, a 19 year old former Pinterest employee. It appears to be an answer to the dauntingly complex task of listing goods that merchants wish to market online. Simply put, it allows us to sell directly through our social media channels. All we need to do is upload the information about our merchandise, and share the link that Gumroad generates for us on our social media platforms. For a 25 cent transaction fee and 5% of the sale price, it handles the hosting, payment and delivery for us. Yes, really! Gumroad can have us marketing our wares literally in the amount of time it takes us to upload our information to its site and share the resulting generated link!
I am very excited about the potential Gumroad holds for my social media clients, and I’m sure you will be, too. For the ease of its functionality alone it is destined to be very big!
What are your thoughts about Gumroad? Will you be able to make use of it? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below!
