How yoga instructor Brittany Nelson uses the ConvertKit Free Plan, ConvertKit Commerce, and a small list to sell their 8-week yoga series
Brittany Nelson is a yoga instructor and intuitive healer at @musingsofayogi where she teaches classes, gives readings and hosts group immersions and programs. She's also a writer by trade – and loves creating new content, music and ideas.
[ConvertKit Commerce is] easy to use – clean – simple – and I'm loving the support I am getting from the team!
Using my own content, I was able to generate my first sale from someone outside my community. I love this platform and am thrilled you are offering this commerce tool.
I am waiting to build a website, so I use my Instagram portfolio as my storefront. Usually I use venmo/paypal for sales but it makes customers have to go through many steps to make a purchase and there's sometimes back-and-forth. I love how simple it is to make a purchase!
As a Free Plan user and someone with a small list (43 email subscribers), Brittany is already making money on her product without having to spend money on any paid tool.
I've made one sale so far: $125 sale! This gave me hope and was a surprise…giving me momentum to keep promoting it and getting creative with my content marketing strategy.
