8 Tips & Tricks for your Print on Demand journey
1. Ask yourself “WHY”:
The journey ahead will not be easy. For this reason, it is important to know what you want to achieve and why you want it. Start by sitting down and asking yourself “Why am I doing this?” “How important is this for me?” and “What am I willing to sacrifice to build a successful brand?” There is no point in starting if you don’t have a clear answer to these questions.
2. Research how others have done it and follow their steps:
3. Start with ETSY:
“An ETSY Print on Demand business is a great way to start, because it will bring a lot of free traffic to your story. “
4. Move to Shopify and start building your brand:
“Once you make 200$-300$ per month, move to Shopify and start build your brand.”
5. Have patience and don’t have unrealistic expectations:
“Don’t expect to get rich within 1 month. Building your brand takes time. Even a company like Nike spent decades building theirs.”
6. Test, test and test again to find the sweet spot for your business:
“Test different designs, prices, marketplaces and mock-ups in order to find what works for your business.”
7. Stay humble:
“Focus on how you can help others rather than turning a profit. If you provide real value, your customers will keep coming back for more.”
8. Hustle hard:
“Nobody will give you what you deserve if you don’t work hard for it. Being an entrepreneur is not easy. You must not give up and learn to enjoy the journey with all its ups and downs.”
