It’s been about a month since I last wrote.
Two days ago I did a big launch. I came out with a new video product on AngularOnRails.com.
It’s always been my intention to create a product ladder for Angular on Rails. Here’s what the product ladder looks like now:
- Free guide (to getting started with Angular + Rails)
- Book ($39)
- Video courses ($199)
The idea is that some visitors will download the free guide, some people who download the free guide will buy the book, and some people who buy the book will also buy the videos.
I launched the video courses on Tuesday at a special price of $99, and for people who have already bought the book, $60. Total revenue since Tuesday for the videos has been $576.
Here’s my month-by-month revenue so far:
August 2016: $868
September 2016: $1053 (18% growth over August)
October 2016 so far: $1364 (30% growth over September)
Total all-time sales is $3285.
I like to contrast these numbers with the fact that Snip never made more than $450/mo. Angular on Rails’ first month of making money was better than Snip’s best month ever!
My goal for November is $2000, which would be about 50% growth over October (or at least 50% growth over what October has earned so far, although I hope and expect I’m not done making sales for October.)
If I grow by 20% a month, I’ll be at $5,000/mo by June 2017 and $10,000/mo by September 2017.
If I grow by 30% a month, I’ll be at $5,000/mo by March 2017 and $10,000/mo by June 2017.
So I think it’s reasonable to shoot for being done with client work (or at least done needing client work) and living 100% off of product income sometime in 2017.
