This Week in Commerce

Inside ConvertKit

If you’ve been around ConvertKit for a while, you know that one of our core values as a company is to “work in public”. We want to stay transparent about the decisions we make and the work we do so that other creators and companies can learn from our actions and hopefully be inspired to pave the way for the next generation of creators to follow them.

With ConvertKit Commerce beta in full swing, we thought it would be a great way to live out that work in public value with our new series: This Week in Commerce.

Every week we’ll be updating you on some behind-the-scenes of the beta, sharing stories of creators using the new tool, and keeping you in the know about what’s coming next for ConvertKit Commerce.

For our inaugural post, we’re excited to share how an online coach has been using ConvertKit Commerce to sell her digital course.

The results:

“As a creator, there are so many tools needed to run a business so I'm always looking for ways to simplify. Having my email marketing and product purchases inside the same platform saved me so much time. I also love how easy it was to deliver digital products via email, which isn't as easy with other digital product platforms.

So far, I've made 16 sales totaling $1,600 in the last 10 days! I look forward to creating more products with ConvertKit Commerce in the coming days.”
