Video Transcript

0:00 Hello, welcome to Selling Spreadsheets. I'm really excited. I'm Andrew. I'm Andrew Campy. I'm not gonna bullshit you through this course.
0:08 I have not made six figures yet selling spreadsheets, and you might not as well. I've made a few hundred dollars a month.
0:16 A month at times, a few hundred dollars over the course of a year. I've made a few thousand dollars making spreadsheets.
0:23 But what's really interesting, I think, is that there's always a spreadsheet within us, or actually within your Google Drive. And I hope, over the course of this- this course, and these lectures, and these videos where we're gonna break down some existing land pages, we're gonna go from almost knowing
0:41 nothing, or you might have a spreadsheet in mind, or you have a spreadsheet already that you're like, I want to sell it, or even you already sell a spreadsheet.
0:48 In the first lesson, in the first course, in the first little section, we're going to go through sort of the mindset on why we sell sheets and what we might be bringing to it.
0:58 I'm gonna push you to add a little bit more, to add a little bit more of yourself into your spreadsheets than you might even think.
1:05 In the second section I will actually lay out sort of a framework or a blueprint of what you can actually sell.
1:15 These are going to be spreadsheets, sort of spreadsheet functions, spreadsheet sort of ideas. And try to get you all of the knowledge that I have and transfer that to you about how to just literally think about building the spreadsheet.
1:30 So the first part is thinking about the sheet that you're gonna sell, then the second part is gonna be literally thinking about how to make it.
1:37 And how, where there might be problems everywhere you look, and also how to get out of your own head and into the customer's idea of what they're buying.
1:46 So that's really key here. In the third section, we're gonna make a spreadsheet. We're gonna go in and dive in.
1:53 To curate things, I'm gonna show you how to essentially make like a machine that can generate spreadsheets. Like we're gonna use a bookmarklet which I've used to generate a ton of curated databases.
2:07 I'm gonna add a little bit of magic to your sheets with a little bit of automation that's not with Apps Script.
2:14 And we're gonna design a dashboard. We're also gonna add a little automation. I'm gonna show you some pretty simple things to do in Apps Script that are gonna make your spreadsheets amazing.
2:25 They're gonna really, like, feel like they're automated and they might actually be automated, so watch that. And then the next section we're going to go into sales we're gonna actually go through landing pages my theory on what makes a good landing page my theories and will also transcend sort of anything
2:42 you're thinking about because we're gonna share your your journey on on the sales page it's not sort of like an objective way to make a sales page I have sort of more a subjective way to make sales pages for spreadsheets and I'm gonna Key you in on probably the strangest secret to selling a spreadsheet
3:01 wait for that one The last section so the last section follows we've thought of a spreadsheet to sell or already have one We've created it.
3:11 We've added a lot of cool stuff to it a lot of cool features We put the sales page up and then the very last section is we're gonna market it where to market how to market it What marketplace is to go to we're gonna talk about Etsy gum road discover We're gonna talk about absolute marketplace, which 
3:27 you might not have thought of yet, but I'm selling consistently there, you know dozens of dollars again, I'm not bullshitting you This is not like a six-figure kind of thing.
3:40 I'm not gonna promise you the world But I do have a little secret that I discovered from two six-figure spreadsheet sellers reading their journey.
3:51 I figured out sort of what's the common element in them and versus what do other spreadsheet sellers not do that they're doing really interesting and so we're gonna like I also in the marketing I just realized I'm also gonna teach you how to protect your IP which is very unique.
4:11 I think the way that I do it is very beneficial to the customer. It doesn't get in the way of people who want to use your spreadsheet and talk about your spreadsheet and share your spreadsheet and you might be thinking oh my god I don't want people to share because when they buy it I want them to keep
4:26 it in their drive and I want them to use it and not share it and not get and not stop any future sales but I'm going to share with you sort of an unconventional way or unconventional ways you'll see it's a lot of different things we do how to protect your IP and how to protect your sheet I also have 
4:45 a tool you know I run better sheets and I have a tool called OnlySheets that helps do that a little bit and so I hope you will stick with me through these modules the very last section is sort of an open-ended section where I break down existing sales pages I break down existing templates I'm gonna add
5:05 a bunch of stuff there for you to peruse see a lot of different perspectives and now here's the key thing you can actually be a part of that so if you're watching this video on BetterSheets or Udemy or anywhere else find a way to email me or put a question in the Q&A and share with me your sheet I'm 
5:26 going to ask you again later in this course but share with me the sheet that you're selling the sales page and I'll go and make a video for this course and others can benefit from it too so make sure you share your sheet share your landing page and I'm happy to break it down add a little ideas for you
5:46 and put it as part of this course so you can be part of this course and help make it better for everyone else and others can make it better for you too so check out that section I already have a couple there I'm really excited to add more and more breakdowns so look forward to hearing from you
