Earn money selling your digital products

Earn money selling your digital products | Nick Christensen - AppSumo

Hey everyone, and welcome back to the Tekpon SaaS Podcast! We’ve got a real treat for you today. Our guest, Nick Christensen from AppSumo, will share some serious knowledge about how to earn a pretty penny selling digital products. So, grab your notepad because you won’t want to miss out on these gems!

Nick’s been with AppSumo since 2017 and has stories to share. Starting as a side hustle while running his ad agency, he’s now all in with the AppSumo family and loving every minute of it. AppSumo kicked off in 2010 with the founders, Noah and Chad, determined to bless digital shoppers with lifetime deals that would knock their socks off.

The chat gets interesting as Nick points out this significant trend shift – folks are leaning towards one-off payments rather than getting tied down with subscriptions. It’s like everyone’s a bit subscription-fatigued, right? Nick also reckons that folks aren’t chasing to be the next Zuckerberg anymore. Nope, it’s all about that sweet lifestyle business that lets you enjoy your life while the dollars roll in.

Life’s much less risky with these lifetime deals; both sides of the marketplace are digging it. Buyers save big, and sellers grow fast. Talk about having your cake and eating it, too! And speaking of cake, Nick tells us about AppSumo’s super chill culture – everyone sets their own pace, and that’s how they like it.

But wait, there’s more. AppSumo is an excellent remote team offering dreamy, all-expenses-paid retreats. They’ve been making it rain for over 15 years, and they’re all bootstrapped, baby! They’re even selling some wisdom in the form of “Million Dollar Weekend,” a book for just seven bucks stuffed with pro tips for business starters.

Nick gets honest with us about the rollercoaster at AppSumo. Not everything’s been sunshine and rainbows – remember Briefcase? Yeah, they learned a lot from that curveball. And Nick’s clear – stay laser-focused on what you’re good at. Don’t chase waterfalls; stick to the strategies and growth hacks you’re used to.

So there you have it, folks! That was one heck of a podcast episode – packed to the brim with insight into selling digital products the AppSumo way. I can’t wait to catch you guys on the next episode of the Tekpon SaaS Podcast, where we’ll keep the SaaS savvy coming at you live and direct! Catch you on the flip side!
