I manage six niche Gumroad pages, and all of them are profitable. Some run on autopilot.

The key to making money on Gumroad is to create a newsletter, build some profitable offers, and batch create content.

This is how I quickly made $10,000 on one of my Gumroad pages in the first five weeks:

  1. Created a free newsletter with a simple lead magnet (free 30 minute video training)
  2. Shared my newsletter link on two of My niche Medium accounts
  3. I posted 20 YouTube Shorts videos on two of my faceless channels (I add the newsletter link in the pinned comment)
  4. Built a simple sales funnel using the Gumroad workflow system which allows you to schedule newsletter posts in advance.
  5. Produced a three-video e-course that comes with a 20 page e-guide.
  6. I Sent out 10 emails in five weeks and five emails contained a call-to-action that prompted people to purchase the course. That’s it!

Bam! $10,000 in five weeks.

Here’s the proof, just in case anyone wants to come for me in the comments. I don’t usually post payment proofs these days, I reserve them for my paid newsletter members, but here it is!
