How To Sell Graphic Tees?
Recently I saw a lot of babes wanting to know how to start their own custom clothing and accessories store. Are you in the same boat?
Do you want to sell graphic tees but now sure where to begin?
Do you want to sell branded mugs and have them shipped directly to your customer without you having to do anything?
Before we jump into how to get started, let's talk about WHY you need branded merchs -
Start your own line of branded products - We all have amazing ideas that we want to share with the world & your own line or branded products is going to help you do just that! Love quotes? Or rap songs? Or fitness? You can incorporate your passion into an exclusive line of products showcasing your ideas.
Add tangible products - Are you a fitness coach or affiliated with health & fitness network marketing brand? Adding a range of branded water-bottles, yoga mats or even t-shirts can help you (1) add a new stream of income & (2) also add tangible products that are different from your upline/downline or anyone else in your company!
No matter what services you provide, you can incorporate tangible products to create more brand awareness & an extra source of income into your existing business.
Extra Stream of Income - As I mentioned above, having branded custom merchandise into your existing business (products or services) will allow you to add an extra source of income. And when fully automated, will take care of all the process by itself.
Hosting Giveaways - Branded merchandise is also a great product when hosting a giveaway or collaborating with other brands as it gives you a chance to spread the word about your brand and also at the same time give something tangible to your tribe to remember you by.
Example - My biz partner and bizbestie Bri who runs THIS girlgang website not only provides you babes with services, but she also has some amazing products in her SHOP that share her passion for helping girl bosses and other biz babes.
It also helps you share what you are passionate about and adds an extra stream of passive income which can be automated with just a few clicks so you can focus more on your business and less on other things like order processing or shipping (more about that below). After all who doesn't love some extra money coming in?!
Now that you know why it's a good idea to have tangible products on your website designed to suit your brand, let's talk about HOW to do it!
Having come across so many babes wanting to get started and put their ideas into reality, I thought of creating a mini guide that would help you kick start and understand the process a little better.
How To Sell Graphic Tees?
How do you start your own custom clothing/merch line without pre-ordering goods BUT instead having them sent to your customers directly everytime they order?
The concept is called Print On Demand Dropshipping.
Dropshipping is a retail method where you piggyback over your supplier's inventory, sell them on your website and every time you make a sell, have them ship the order directly to your customers without you having to do anything. Interesting isn't it?
If you know me or have heard/read my blogs you know I'm a hugeeeee fan of this concept because it's not only helped me start my own business but also start my own clothing line MysticalBerries.
Printful is a print on demand supplier that allows you to create your own custom design store selling anything from clothing to merch and accessories.
Ease of usage. Printful allows you to upload your designs, sync them with your website and every time you make a sale, the order gets automatically processed. All you have to do is focus on marketing and creating brand awareness.
Not only this, you can also order samples at a discounted rate so you can check the quality of the product before you start your own store.
