Merch Update Series: My Merch Sales October 2017 Update

Hello, Creatives welcome again to another Merch sales update! For anybody who is new in this series, I will be providing monthly updates on my progress selling my Merch designs online. I have created a couple posts on how to get started selling on Teespring and Amazon. I will go over my sales/royalties from those sales and how I am building my business.

You can follow blogs like Hustle hacks and Making cents of Money for side hustle inspirations.

Currently, I am selling on the below platforms:

Since then I decided to create another Instagram Creativescale.Merch. I created this account to separate my creative business account and my t-shirts. The goal for my currently for my Creative account is to catalog my journey and display my recent projects. I now have my new account to strictly post my shirt designs and drive more targeted traffic to my merch platforms.

Lessons Learned

As you see this month is lacking, and I have listed what I feel are the reason why.

  • Lack of consistent promotion
  • Research designs to improve current campaigns
  • Descriptions – Keyword Research
  • Collaboration
  • Other projects

I will be sure to take these lessons back and more to improve my sales for November. Automating my posts will help in ensuring that I am promoting the t-shirts daily. This will also allow me to engage with my followers more which is also very important when running a business.

 

November I will be a lot more focused on gaining insight into where my buyers are coming from using Google Analytics. I will also be doing more Keyword research and updating my descriptions as well. With these strategies, I expect to see an increase in sales moving forward.

I am also working on a line of shirts that will hopefully be profitable as well so I cannot wait to reveal whats coming next! Do you sell merch online? What strategies do you use to successfully sell online?
