Nice way to start a post!?? With a boring graph.
You are about to discover why this graph is not so boring after all.
I am George Pierce. I began Internet Marketing about 20 years ago
as a way to share my weight loss story.
Turns out that I love it, but when I began training, instruction, tutoring,
mentoring, and so on were almost non-existent. Early on, in my quest to learn
Internet Marketing, I decided that if I could ever figure it out, I would share
what I had learned, hopefully making it easier for others.
I do not consider myself an expert, in fact, I think that is almost a plus, the idea being
"If I can do this, anyone can."
One of my many online endeavors has been online stores. It seems
as if most people would love to have an online store...BUT...there are
a few hurdles that seem to stop most people before they begin.
I agree that cost can be a factor, but I believe RISK and stepping out
of our COMFORT ZONE are the real underlying
reasons why most people might balk at starting their own store.
The good news is that all those reasons and excuses are no longer valid.
If you take another look at the boring graph above, what you are seeing is
the worldwide search for T-shirts. According to Google Trends, the search
has been excellent for years and now the search has reached 100%. In other
words, search is presently the highest that it has ever been!
Above is a TOP SELLING T-Shirt Design that you can get for free from Canva.
A real hurdle for any business is timing. This is not a good time to sell beepers.
This is the best time ever to sell T-Shirts!
What this also means is that T-Shirt suppliers, actually POD (Print On Demand)
suppliers are doing everything they can to make it as easy as possible for you and me
to sell their products.
Another popular T-Shirt design made with Canva.
Many of these suppliers are worldwide...you can sell
worldwide. They fulfill your order! They handle everything!
There is no risk.
Woo Commerce is a totally free store option and most POD
suppliers will integrate with Woo Commerce. This means that
after you set up your free store, it runs almost on autopilot.
There are a few suppliers that set up your store for you and
fill it with products, it does not get much easier than this.
SpreadShop is an example. In fact, this morning, I was
uploading some free designs to my free SpreadShop.
Simple T-Shirt Designs are easy to create and free.
Another benefit is that most T-Shirt suppliers have
several hundreds of products. This means that you
can sell T-Shirts and a whole lot more.
This industry is cranking out millionaires, yet we can
start for free.
This design as you saw above is hot and is straight from Camva which is free with no copyright issues.
Uh Oh! One more obstacle!
There is one more obstacle, this is NOT an obstacle, but, like fear, it appears to be real.
The obstacle is that we need to come up with designs...OH NO!
For me, when I discovered that designs were involved, that was a deal breaker.
Fortunately, I do my research before I come to my final conclusion.
I discovered that I could overcome this obstacle with free tools.
I use sites such as SnapTouch, RemoveBG, and Canva to turn a very non-artsy person (ME)
into a designer!
Guess what! With these free tools, design becomes the best part, the fun part.
I have put together a video with more details about how to get your own free
online T-Shirt store and I have included the design process step by step as
well as 16 tricks and secrets to turn any beginner into a pro.
Legally, I cannot make any promises, but if you give this a try,
you will enjoy it.
Thank you for reading, my friends, much success.
PS. I will be sharing my video on SE soon.
PPS. One of the secrets is to be unique and you will see exactly how free tools
do all the work and make our designs stand out.
SnapTouch is free and can make designs special.
