How to Sell Your "Know-How" Online with Mavenseed (From e-Books to Video Courses)

Apr 4th 2020

Why you should sell your digital content

It's the year 2020 and learning has gone digital.

The demand for online training is higher than ever and it is projected to grow by more than 10% annually.

For digital artists, this is the perfect opportunity to offer their know-how online for a little (or a lot!) of extra income.

Obviously, this varies hugely, but the data shows that it's not uncommon to earn well over $1,000 per month with a built-up online training presence (and there is plenty of $100,000+ a year earners out there)

And while this level of success takes serious time and commitment, the good news is that it's never been easier to get started.

The only question: "Where should I sell my stuff?"

Mavenseed is an independent platform for selling your digital content

For digital artists, this means anything from an e-book to a digital download. Or from a video course to a series of building your own online school.


How it works: Mavenseed gives you a ready-made platform for selling.

You customize its look with a drag-and-drop page builder, upload your content, connect your bank...and you're ready to go.

Built by independent creators, for independent creators

The team behind Mavenseed (Wes, Jonathan and Nick) were creators first, just like you.

We built our online school for 3D artists, CG Cookie, from zero to hosting 100s of training videos and servicing 100,000+ subscribers globally (and that includes schools and creative studios).

In short, we know a thing or two about selling online successfully -- and Mavenseed is a platform we built to make this possible for anybody.

The best thing about Mavenseed is that it will always be just the right size for you.
