We at Gumroad watched a talk.
It was all about how the faster creators (our users!) get feedback on the things that they do, the more time they can spend thinking and creating really cool things for everyone else to consume.
We have pushed two things live that embody this:
- A new edit page looks much more like the final link page. We even use the same code to generate much of the previews, for example. This means that an image, audio, or video preview look just like they would when buyers see it. We’ve totally redone it to be a much more accurate representation of the purchase page.
- The purchase page now allows you to change things like the title of a link, the description of the link, and even the price of the link — inline. For example, to edit the price of a link from $1 to $1+, you can click on the price, enter a ‘+’ sign, and hit enter to save it. You don’t even have to refresh! And all of the changes are updated right away for everyone else to see.
We are super happy about both of these things and hope they lead to you spending more time creating stuff, and less time worrying about everything else!
