Here's a Simple Secret for Selling More Products on Creative Market

One of the most common questions I see in the Passive Income for Designers Facebook group is:

"Is my product good enough?"

It makes sense. 

You spend every extra minute you have working on your new product.  You sacrifice time with your family. You carefully craft your product into something that you think you're audience will love. 

Then with butterflies of excitement and fear you click the "Publish" button. 

Finally, all the work is about to pay off.

The first day maybe you get a sale...

The next day none.

A week later still none. 

You feel like you wasted your time. Maybe you feel like your work isn't good enough.

But in your gut, it just feels like the product should be selling. You know your product is as strong as the others you see on Creative Market. So what's the problem?

How to Choose a Niche

How to Choose a Niche


Choose a niche that you love (and feels a little insane). Then search for clues that it might work.

One of the most common questions I get is "How do I choose a niche for my passive income business?"

We're all looking for our own little unique corner of the market. A place where we can make great art and people will shower us with money for doing it.

The truth is that finding the right niche is a mix of research, luck, and enough insanity to stand out.

How to Make Your First Passive Income Sale

One of the most common questions I get asked by new creators building a passive income is:

I asked successful Creative Market shop owners for their best tips and strategies for getting your first sales (using the Creative Market forums). Then I organized the tips with key takeaways to make it easy to scan. Enjoy!
