Marketing the products on social media and Product Hunt:

I sucked at selling my digital products.

Now I can sell them and get 100 sales per day.

Here's how to sell on social media and Product Hunt:

Social media marketing:

1. Content marketing

2. DMing

3. Influencer marketing

1/ Content marketing

You create content by yourself and promote your product in the last tweet or in the CTA.

But for this, you need a audience.

If you don't have an audience it will difficult to sell your products.

Build a brand > Sell your products

2/ DMing

For this, you need to create thoughtful content that resonates with people and solve problems.

Solve problems via content... then pitch those who admire your work.

If they can't buy for some reason tell them to recommend your products to others.

3/ Influencer marketing

I don't suggest this if you don't have any budget.

If you got budget then creators on the social media platform can promote your product.

Product Hunt:

Product Hunt is a useful platform which you can use to promote your templates for free.

Create a product page.


PH is filled with CEOs, SaaS owners, creators, and entrepreneurs.

If your product can solve a problem then they'll definitely buy it.


Start this side hustle in your spare time.

You don't have to leave your job for this yet.

When you build a brand and start selling your templates or other digital products and see revenue coming... then leave it.

Otherwise, keep it.
