Selling physical product subscriptions - set up in 15 minutes. Landing page built with Carrd and then using Gumroad for payments, shipping etc.
(Inspired by Dollar Shave Club)
Create a landing page on Carrd
First set yourself up with a Carrd account (Makerpad members get 40% off with this deal). And select a blank canvas
We’re going to use the Dollar Shave Club website as inspiration for our site.
Set up your Card account and then start with a blank canvas. Change the background colour to white and set your page to Top position with full width. Delete the placeholder text.
Add a container with two columns and align the left to left and make the container full width and set a height. Add a video element on the right column and paste your YouTube video (we’re using the Dollar Shave Club video). Set it to autoplay and loop.
We can change the width of the left column to 30% and make our video bigger. Align it centre then add our heading and tagline text (using the DSC text here). Edit the style of the elements.
Change the container until you get what you want - changing the contents with. Now add a button element and style it how you like.
The next section is similar to the top but image on the left. You can use different elements for different layouts, here we have used the list element. Same again for the next 3 sections below. We’ve inserted a couple GIF images.
Using the table element we are going to make a simple FAQ. Remove the headings and enter your text. Alter the padding and styling until you are happy!
Publish, test and tweak!
