How To Make £1000 Per Month Selling Your Own Designs with Print On Demand

In the dynamic world of business, cutting unnecessary costs and optimising operations is crucial. For entrepreneurs seeking to enhance their operations, we offer a complete white-labelled Print On Demand solution tailored exclusively for a niche market of sellers operating in competitive markets such as personalised mugs, stickers and wall art. With over 15+ years of experience in the printing industry behind us, we're not only cheaper, but we're more reliable, provide faster delivery, and have better customer service than leading Print On Demand services, such as Printify, Printful and Gelato.

Achieving your first £1000 per month is undeniably the most challenging milestone.

Many underestimate the difficulty of this feat and unfortunately, most fall short. However, you can steer clear of this fate by adhering to three fundamental rules. By staying dedicated to these principles, consistently meeting your listing goals, we guarantee that you'll reach £1000 per month within 12 months or less.

Rule #1: List every day without exception.

Every online marketplace thrives on fresh listings each day, a crucial yet often overlooked practice. This straightforward strategy ensures a steady flow of traffic to your store consistently. You should strive to increase the number of overall listings in your store in order to sustain growth. Therefore, listing daily to grow your store should be your utmost priority.

TIP! Don't be fooled into using costly listing software to cheat your way to 1000's of listings in just a few days. Whilst this may work to grow your store initially, your store will crash the moment you stop listing at the same level as you did before. For sustained growth you need to build a consistent listing habit into your daily strategy and maintain it over a long period of time.

Rule #2: Use promotions and discounts every day with the shortest possible duration.

Promotions and discounts are staples in driving traffic, boosting conversions, and securing sales for every ecommerce store. This tried-and-true tactic is effective for a reason. Moreover, marketplaces offer a unique advantage in leveraging promotions to increase sales because promotion fatigue doesn't really apply on marketplaces. Buyers expect to see promotions on these platform every day -- so use them as often as you can to your advantage.

TIP! Always run promotions with the shortest possible duration. Why? Because the platform has a tendancy to promote new promotions, in the same way it promotes new listings. Therefore, running your promotions with the shortest possible duration allows you to maximize the visibility of your promotional efforts.

Rule #3: Remove under-performing listings from your store.

Every store has listings which are either; NOT generating views, NOT generating watchers, likes or favourites, OR NOT generating sales. Each one of these listings reduce the overall performance of your store causing the platform to reduce the amount of traffic that it diverts your way -- because it thinks you have rubbish listings. Make it a weekly habit to remove these poor performing listings from your store. In doing so you will improve your conversion rate prompting the marketplace to direct more traffic your way. More traffic translates to increased impressions, page views, and ultimately more sales.

TIP! Don't remove more listings than you are actively adding to your store each day. Reducing the number of listings in your store will reduce the amount of the traffic you receive and your sales will decline as a result.
