Gumroad Case Study: Ebooks


In May, 2013, authors/developers Sacha Grief and Tom Coleman released their book, Discover Meteor.

Like many products, they had a pretty big launch day, but we’ve been keeping an eye on them and noticed something pretty cool. They’ve figured out a way to sustain high sales for more than a year and a half.

We wanted to know how they did it, and luckily they were willing to share their strategies. We’ve put their exact methods in an in-depth case study, which we’re excited to share with you. We hope you gain some insights into creating your own sustainable sales strategy.
