A little info on the company that allows all this amazing stuff.
Redbubble was born in 2006 in Melbourne, Australia. The dream was simple. Give independent artists a meaningful new way to sell their creations. Today, they connect over 700,000 artists and designers across the planet with millions of passionate fans. A brave and dare we say, stylish new world of self-expression.
- Creators build their designs: This can be done on many platforms, such as Visme, Canva, PhotoShop, and many more. I have an account with Visme and use them for creating flyers, ebooks, the designs I have used on RedBubble, and a few other projects. The selection of templates that are available goes way beyond what I use. Once you have your design you are ready to create your own merchandise.
- Open a shop: Go to RedBubble and sign up for your account, upload your design, and you are on your way to creating unique products they will produce, sell, and deliver for you. It really is that simple!
- Put your design on the products you choose: Once you have your shop and uploaded your design, they will lead you through the process of placing it on any of the 60 products they offer. You can edit the layout, resize the design to optimize the appearance, and pick and choose which products will be available.
- Get Paid: When you are setting up your shop, They will prompt you to enter your payment settings. You will have to have an active Paypal account or you can enter your banking info and the money you make will go straight to your bank account. It is a few short steps but you will need to have your information available to set up shop. They can’t pay you if they don’t have it.
Creative? Like money? Open a shop in minutes. For free. Just upload your art and designs and leave the rest to them. They arrange for all the printing on over 60 quality products and shipping to almost anywhere on earth. Ready? Let’s go!
Anyone can be an artist! Don’t think just because you can draw or have never created a painting that you are not an artist. Open your mind to things that you find adorable or funny and create a design with the templates the platform you use gives you. Then create custom merchandise.
Do some research, look up what people are purchasing. What is a hot topic that you could enjoy working on and making a creative phrase or image that people would like to own?
Once you have all of this completed, it is proven that if you advertise your products and where to get them you will make many more sales. It is as simple as putting your stuff on a Facebook page or any social media for people to see. I have even made and printed flyers to pass around locally. if you have a website, as I do you could even set it up sort of like an eCommerce shop.
Any advertising you can do will increase the sale of your specific products!
Sell Your Merchandise Online
That is it! Once your shop is open and you have edited all of your products, it is time to sell. This is done through RedBubble already but if you want to increase sales and expand your bank account, it is up to you to promote your products and drive traffic to them.
This can be done in so many ways and it is affordable and easy to do. It won’t take up too much of your time and can if managed properly become a real income!
