Story about How To Sell Excell Spreadsheets and Get Paid

Learn more how to benefit from the ready excel spreadcheets you have.

Once I was contacted by a guy who had a business that was focused on (don’t laugh) asset care. He asked me to implement a feature in his website that would allow him to sell spreadsheets in Excel format and documents about asset care.

As there was not a good platform to make his spreadsheet sales, it actually was really difficult and troublesome for him. There are a lot of steps to follow to get a service like that running. For example, you need a contract with a payment provider, your bank needs to approve your financials, your website needs to be integrated with a payment gateway, and the technical aspects of securing the downloads should also be taken into consideration.

He decided not to have the module since he did not know how much revenue this would generate. Though selling his knowledge in the form of Excel spreadsheets was rather tempting.

Today there are some other options for solving this scenario but it is still not an easy task and in most cases it requires some technical knowledge or insight.

With AtBizz.com selling spreadsheets would be very easy. He could just sell the products through our site and test if it would be profitable at no cost whatsoever for him.

Another upcoming feature is the AtBizz.com widget. It enables you to have a preview of the product in an applet on your own page or on your MySpace or Facebook profile. This gives you the option to advertise the knowledge for sale in your own environment. The implementation is as easy as using a YouTube widget. You just need to copy paste a few lines of code and you are ready to go.

      I agree with Clive. This is a great lens. For those who are already proficient an excel, this sounds a good way to get a little extra spending money.

      Makes perfect sense to me and of course the information here has taken some time to put together and compile. To say I'm impressed would be an understatement. Top information placed in a top lens, by a top lensmaster. Thanks again.

      Kind Regards
