“Secret of getting ahead is getting started”
This quote is 100% true and before you start dreaming about big goals, first step is to get started. Same is the case with Merch By Amazon.
You may have heard stories of others making good money on Merch By Amazon and would want the same for you but remember they all reached at this level because they get started as soon as possible.
21st August 2017
Many people around the globe had marked this date on their calendar as this is the day when Total Solar Eclipse also known as Great American Eclipse was visible in contiguous United States.
As per Wikipedia – “The last time a total solar eclipse was visible across the entire contiguous United States was during the June 8, 1918 eclipse, and not since the February 1979 eclipse has a total eclipse been visible from anywhere in the mainland United States.”
While eclipse fans and millions of people enjoyed watching this event wearing their eclipse glasses and solar eclipse shirts, there were a bunch of people who must have been be very happy today as they made loads of money due to this one event.
Together they sold tshirts worth approximately $2,97,000 on Amazon (over a quarter million) and that too in last 1 – 1.5 month only.
These tshirts were sold on Amazon via Merch by Amazon platform.
One of the most important skill for any Merch by Amazon seller is to create and submit designs quickly. You should make it a goal to submit designs daily until you’ve reached your design submission list. At least that is our goal.
More designs you’ve live on Merch, more chances are that they will sell. If you don’t have any designs live for your potential customers to see, you’re definitely not going to sell. As simple as that.
You might be thinking..
Hey Prashant….I know that ..But ..
I am not a designer
I don’t know any good graphic designer.
I don’t have any design ideas
How do I create designs quickly..
I don’t have Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator & I don’t have time to learn these complex software
I take hours for me to come up with a simple design
I don’t like the designs I created.
………… and this list can go on and on with excuses.. ( Yes I said it.. it’s nothing but EXCUSE)
Many newcomers in Merch By Amazon struggle with one thing … i.e. most of them are non-designer.
This is one question that I have seen posted in all Merch related groups literally like hundred of times.
Everyone whether new or established seller wanted to know how they can select default color for Tshirt on Merch By Amazon while submitting the design.
We all understand that not all design look great on all tshirt color so seller would want to choose the default tshirt color so best combination is displayed to anyone searching for tshirts.
Till now it was left to the mercy of Amazon as it was believed that they select the color randomly first and then later based on the popularity & sales of any particular color.
But as a seller you couldn’t do anything to change or select the default tshirt color for your designs.
Finally…… THERE IS A SOLUTION…
There are several ways to boost your tshirt sales even if you’re not getting organic traffic. I will discuss all those in a separate post soon.
But in this post, I want to share a cool trick that I found to quickly boost your tshirt sales on Merch By Amazon even if you’re are a newcomer (tier 10 or 25) and not getting any organic sales.
