Tired of trying to figure out ways to earn extra money? Are you trying to build your own brand, but can’t figure out how to do so? Well, opening a merch shop can be what you’re missing.
Currently you might not have merch or maybe you are thinking “no one would want a shirt with my brand on it.” Well, you are wrong! Believe it or not, people love to purchase their favorite brand’s merch! This is a great way for people to support you.
Opening a shop is hassle free! You simply sign up, create your design, adjust your shop layout, make your account live, and WA-LA, you’re done! Promote your shop to your followers on social media; people love to see what your brand is up to. Ask your followers to repost and share your shop. The sky’s the limit when it comes to selling your merch! It’s all up to you and how you brand yourself.
So back to our topic, “how can opening a shop earn you money.” Some companies out there like Shopify, charge you fees to open a shop, so they might not be the best option to earn money. On the other hand, Spreadshop, Threadless, Teespring, Printful, and Designbyhumas are all FREE! Yes, I said FREE!!! So, what’s the catch? Nothing!
There’s no catch or hidden fees when it comes to opening your merch shop with these companies. They all allow you to open your shop and simply make a percentage when you make a sale.
Basically, these companies get paid when you get paid. And the best part is that you don’t have to stock your house with inventory or deal with the headaches of having to run to the post office to drop off your products. These companies handle all the inventory and shipping, so you don’t have to.
With that being said, opening a merchandise shop will only be profit, you won’t be losing any money by creating one with any of these free companies. All you need to do is promote your brand to your audience and try to convince them to purchase from your shop.
Once customers purchase your items, they are more likely to purchase something from you again, especially if they are passionate supporters. If your shop isn’t successful right off the start, don’t panic and assume it’s not working; find ways to enhance your shop look/feel or maybe you need to promote your shop to your followers.
So what are you waiting for?!? Open your Merch Shop now! Every second you let pass by is an opportunity for you to make a new sale!
