Print on Demand is not dead! Journey to 10k a month.

Nice Journey. Do you give your Shops a kickstart with some Fake Reviews?

Yes! And now let me tell you some advanced methods. When I give my fake review, I create a digital listing. This listing has the same image and same title as the best listing I want to sell.
1. The listing is digital and I can review it in a few seconds instead of days
2. I set the listing costs to 1$ so I don't have to pay high etsy fees.

Now I order my listing and upload an image of the product as a review. It now has the same name, same icon and a picture so everyone sees a review of the product I want to sell.
 
How are you avoiding bans. If you’re starting multiple shops aren’t you risking your current lucrative shops!?
 
Sure but what I’m saying is that it one shop gets taken then all get taken. So every time you add a new shop or product you’re risking all your income. So I guess this isn’t a concern? At what times are you worried about getting your shops taken down? I heard Etsy doesn’t like dropshippers.

Yes if one shop is taken, all are gone. However each shop has their own strikes counted, so I'm decreasing the risk instead increasing it (this does not apply for adding many products).
BUT, print on demand is not dropshipping. Print on demand is allowed on etsy, so there is no risk involved here, the risk comes from the designs you are listing. If you sell normal designs you are not risking anything even with 10.000 items.

Have you thought about using stealth seller accounts in order to decrease the risk (in case one of your shops gets banned, it wouldn't affect the other ones)?

Man I would love stealth accounts, but I'm from germany and I never found someone that can provide it here.
 
How do you deal with negative reviews from your competitors/legit buyers? What's your pricing strategy? Do you sell your items at the same price as your competitors, do you try to undercut them, or are you selling at premium?
 
I've noticed a huge decrease in Jan sales- even with targeting Valentines Day. How has your Jan compared to Dec 23'?
 
I can't edit my original post... I had one more question. As far as I'm aware POD companies do not allow returns unless it's a defective item. How do you deal with situations where a customer is not happy with the item that they received, it might be the size, or any other reason. You tell them, the item can't be returned, cause it's custom made, but they don't care and threaten you with a negative review. Did you have any situations like that?

Man !
Congratulations on your current progress! Fellow EU seller here from France. Thank you for sharing your tricks on getting reviews. However, asking friends and family for fake reviews is a bit problematic for me. Nevertheless, I'm willing to invest in getting reviews. Do you know of any reliable platforms where I can find people to do this safely? Thanks.

I don't get negative reviews. Yeah there is sometimes a 1-2/5 stars review, but I can just ignore them, I have 4.9/5 out of 1000+ reviews.
Pricing: same price as competitiors and just a slightly less, nothing too much, just a dollar or something like that. But I mean the competitors that are expensive and have a lot of sales. I'm not trying to compete with the low price sellers.

That's totally normal, I have like a 80% decrease after december. Jan-March are quite constant.

Well most of the times the customer understands the fact that they can't return the item. Otherwise I offer a partial refund so I make +-0 for this order, if that is still not enough, I just tell them to fuck themselves, because I have so many 5 star reviews it doesn't matter. I won't kiss anyones ass.

Bhw has some sellers I think, also Fiverr is possible, but both are a bit expensive. Still totally worth it, when you don't have any reviews. I wold make sure to get some review pictures as well.

UPDATE

Well I said I will not update in real-time because of copycats and stuff like that, so here are the results from november 2023 from my main shop:

Etsy Stats.png


Yes you see this correct, 153.500€ in november in a single shop.

etsy stats 2.png

Another 29.000€

etsy stats 3.png

All shops combines are about 220.000€ in review. I also paid like 30.000$ in etsy ads just in november

Total profit: about 80.000-90.000€

Overall I would not have thought, that this is even possible, but what can I say - I'm happy.

Bro how did you grow so fast man, the returns is insane.
 
Can u Share with us a example of product that It works.

I challenge you to make an account from zero and get the first thousand euros a month... It would be great with all the experience you have

I can't share all the products I use, but let me tell you that I decided to focus more on expensive products that are giving more profit per sale and are less saturated than stuff like shirts and mugs. One example would be Pillows or Custom shaped rugs. Think outside the box, search for pod companies nobody heard of.

As for your challenge, I did it the last 2 months, brand new shop, but also running ads:

Have you tried to run traffic from outside the platform to Etsy?

Good timing with your question. I tried it around christmas but it was a fail, was not worth it. But a few hours ago I made another test with the product that has the best ROI from etsy ads.
