Many of you know the wonderfully talented Cinti of My Poppet or at least, like me, have followed her crafty adventures for many years through her blog. Colourful, quirky, retro and the rest(!) - her posts and tutorials are always inspiring and uplifting.
Along with her creative talent, I've always admired Cinti for having the knack of being able to explain technical and business-y issues in ways that are easy to relate to and understand.
Cinti's new ebook "Selling PDFs The Easy Way" is one such example. It's crammed with useful info for crafty and creative people who want to branch out and sell their products: patterns, tutorials, illustrations, art, recipes, ebooks and other know-how via digital channels.

As someone who fits into this category and who has often searched high and low for the sort of information Cinti offers, I'm here to tell you that it's not easy to find and certainly not in such a well written, comprehensive package.
There are real life case studies from a diverse group of PDF/digital sellers and even a few well-chosen words of wisdom from yours truly recounting my pattern selling experience with Wink Designs over the last 4 years.
"Selling PDFs the Easy Way" covers the gamut from creating to selling to marketing your PDFs. Digital delivery options from the popular etsy and Big Cartel through to a whole host of other platforms such as Fetch, Shopify and E-Junkie are discussed in depth. A highly recommended read!
