Solving the Challenges of Selling Excel TemplatesIf you’ve ever sold your XLS files online, you probably realize the practice comes with challenges.
First, you risk your intellectual property with every new sale. Once buyers have your templates in hand, they can see your formulas and workflows. They could potentially reverse-engineer your hard work and repurpose it, or even resell it without your consent or knowledge.
Second, unlocking recurring revenue from Excel templates can be difficult, as the templates are typically one-time purchases. To build consistent income, an innovation is needed.
Third, to use your templates potential users must own a copy of Excel and be reasonably skilled at using it. This narrows down your potential customer base even further.
