I'm trying to get a digital product off the ground, and I'm having all kinds of trouble.

It's a collection of templates for people who want to set up a campaign for a digital product but they don't have the resources or the marketing and sales knowledge to do it themselves, and they definitely don't want to hire it out.

It's also for digital marketing virtual assistants who want another way to differentiate themselves in the market. Many people can pay $25/hr to get their course/membership/whatever off the ground, but they're not going to pay what I charge, for example. So virtual assistants can buy sales page templates, landing page templates, the roadmap that tells them exactly what they need to do.

It's awesome, and it's what I use for all my client campaigns as well as my own (although just like any company that works with clients, my own work gets pushed to the back burner more often than I'd like).

So, what's the problem, then?

Well, I feel stuck to the platform I've already paid for, which is Teachery (thanks for the "hey link to the things you're talking about" comment from my last post!).

But it's not the right platform for this.

I think I've known that for the last few months, but it's gotten to the point where if I keep it in Teachery, it ends up being SUCH a bad user experience that no one will ever use it.

Which is obviously not the goal.

I really believe in the mantra I read recently, "get it done, then later, make it good," but at this point, it's not sellable.

So I'm going to switch it.

Which will hopefully not get in the way or take too long.

Fingers crossed!

    @kathleencelmins This sounds like a very interesting product. I'm one of those people exploring affiliate marketing, landing pages, email capture and all that. I have been floating in a sea of information trying to get my bearings to go forward. If you have more information about your product, I would be happy to take a look and provide feedback.
