In the dynamic world of digital product creation, a novel opportunity emerged in 2020 with Apple's iOS 14 update, offering users the ability to customize their iPhone home screens with custom icon packs.
This feature birthed a lucrative niche, allowing content creators to make money with iOS.
One such designer was Traf who swiftly recognized the potential and monetized their creative talent, setting off a money-making week like you wouldn’t believe.
A simple tweet with his own icons and layout and Traf's icon packs gained rapid traction. The turning point came when influential tech YouTuber MKBHD showcased Traf's creations, propelling sales to new heights.
Traf made 6 figures in 6 days.
While the initial frenzy gradually subsided, designers can still harness this opportunity for income generation. I did.
Right after the success story of Traf, I started creating my own icon packs for iOS. These earned a decent chunk of money and kickstarted my Gumroad career, driving sales, email list members, and new digital product ideas.
I am now closing in on 6000 sales all-time on Gumroad. All thanks to Traf & his story.
