Hey , BHW. All of us know what etsy is so I don't need to make an intro to this method. - I know lots of you know what this method is but wait YOU WILL LEARN MORE FROM THIS TUTORIAL. What are the requirements to start doing this? - You should know what POD is ( YouTube has lots of free resources ) - A little knowledge on graphic designing on Photoshop or Canva. - Paypal account or US bank account ( you can get it from payoneer ) - 30-50$ to start - I recommend using printful as a POD provider. - Use someone's link to get free 40 listings. - Create your etsy account (easy) You can choose between using paypal alone or using etsy payment processor I recommend the second one. You can use it from specific countries but you can use it if you're outside these countries by using your payoneer bank account and fake name generator. They might ask you to provide you ID if you have it then submit it if you don't you can try again in a different country ( Sorry for my bad explanation ). - Integrate printful with etsy. - Make your store look professional (IMPORTANT) ---- All these thing up are the basics. - Start searching for a new niche - Use google trends. - Try to figure out what is selling on other stores. - This store is a Gem ( teehervier on google ) - Get ideas and niches from this store. - Don't worry a lot about copyrights. - In etsy copyrights doesn't really matter. - I don't recommend doing that at first. - Gain repetition then do it. - At first publish on trends. - Anime designs sell well. - TV series also sell well but be aware. - Your design plays an important role. - Try to see what designs are selling - Make something like these designs. - Use a good mockup - Printful has good ones - Don't use mockups of people use only on t-shirt with white background - SEO is also important. - Use main keywords in the title. - marmalead or etsyrank are good to get ideas of keywords. - Make you listing simple and pofessional. - Make your store different. - Make it a mugs store - Make it a pillow store - etc.... - Competition will be low and demand for them is good on etsy. -Customer service is important. - If somebody contacted you about a product give him a discount. - Keep on touch with your customers. - Make your profit 7-12 $ - This is the range for T-shirts - Make your price competitive - Offer discounts (10% is good ) - Offer free shipping in USA. - Don't make it affect your margins. Then: ------ It will take one month to make it a real business. ------ You'll make 200-500$ at least per month. ------ Scale it and make a shopify website. ------ Be creative. ------ Remember that you'll not lose a penny ------ Look at this store I've followed him since he had 30 sales (5months ago) ------ TeenaciousTees on etsy ------- Good luck This is based on my experience if you have any good tip post it down. If there's something not clear make a comment with it. Regards!!
