Please Download Updates

Four years into this ePublishing journey, we’re still a little baffled when subscribers don’t download updates. Roughly 40% of our subscribers download new files in the month after updates are made available. Perhaps our update notifications are considered spam and never appear in inboxes, or perhaps everyone is so busy trying to keep up that they never get around to downloading the updates.

In any case, we encourage subscribers to download updates as soon as possible so that you have the latest information available to you.

  1. It is always so difficult to find the link to the updates. Perhaps that is why so few people download the updates. Right now, I am still looking.

    1. Hi Art, we have documented guidance in our FAQ and we keep that FAQ updated as new suggestions are made to us.

      In a nutshell, you should go and log-into Gumroad to the account you created when you first bought the book. You can always get the latest updates from your account. Or if you kept the receipt, use the View product link in it to download the files.

      1. Hi Tony, my two cents. First, the book has been incredibly helpful so thank you for that. As for the updates, it would be helpful if you included a link to Gumroad in the email that goes out about the update or on this page (and not in the picture on the left) instead of putting it in an FAQ where it isn’t the first question. I never remember the name of the site is Gumroad, there’s nothing about that I can remember to associate with this book which is why I don’t rush out and download right away. I always know I’m going to have to dig through some information like a bunch of FAQ questions or old emails to get it updated. It isn’t that it’s complicated, it’s just enough of a pain that I don’t do it right away and often I forget about it.

      2. Reasonable point. Let us see how we can improve the FAQ.

      3. Thank you for adding the link to the email. That made it much easier for me to update my copy this month. Appreciate it!

      1. I Would Like To Set Up A Landing Page Just For The Book 🙂 It’s A Great Book And I Think More People Need To Know It’s Available. It Has Helped Me Tremendously.

      2. Go ahead… and point to the book purchase page and we’ll see about making you an affiliate.

  2. Hi – I’ve got trouble trying to get hold of the update. Gumroad no longer recognise my account so I can’t login to get hold of the update. While I appreciate this is likely to be gumroad’s problem there is no way of contacting them on their website. So what do I do – I’ve paid for a product that I can no longer get updates for?


    1. Do you have the receipt that was sent out when you bought the book from Gumroad? That will have the account name that was used for the purchase. are the folks to contact…

      1. The support email contact has sorted it out – thanks. Apparently I never had an account (most don’t according to Gumroad support). They supplied the link that took me to the update.

      2. That response is kind of odd. We have thousands of customers with Gumroad accounts… It’s the only way to get updates.
