But first, let’s take a sip.

Take a sip:  So I’m very particular about what I recommend and use. As a loyal user over the past 5 years, I chose to use Gumroad as my ecommerce platform. It’s great for digital creators like you and me. I have watched it transform to be more user-friendly which helps when we just want to upload our work and begin selling in less than 5 minutes. I’ve also used it for memberships, ticket sales, consultations and digital training videos to name a few ways to use the platform. So far, they’ve put $175m in the pockets of creators around the world only taking a 5% cut. Not bad. Wouldn’t you like to join an ecommerce platform that brings in that type of money for its users? Go to gumroad.com/invites to sign up today.

Final Toast:  Consider looking into this new digital emerging market. Don’t close off from it because it’s not something you know specifically. Pitch your strengths. Don’t discount the opportunity. Let your strengths, resume, track record and resume speak for itself.
