I am very excited to share what has been happening in the last couple of weeks in my buisness and how it is continuing to grow in almost all areas, also September was a my best month to date on the books! I want to say thank you for everyone that has followed me along the way and for anyone new, welcome! You will see in this report that I have seen a shift in my buisness towards Merch by Amazon, this is because there has been so much growth potential that it forced me to pay attention to it at a much greater level. I will break down my main focus thoughts below on what I have been up to!
- Merch by Amazon- The majority of my time was spent on Merch this month and added over 300 new designs. I started using Adobe Illustrator this month and it was surprisingly easy to learn and much easier to maneuver then its free counter part GIMP. Learning this software has enabled me to pump out new designs much faster and also has given me a much better understanding of the design aspect and I have been able to put together some much neater and In my mind catchier shirt designs.
- Launching a Clothing Brand – I have started a side project that will be based around an recreational niche to build social media accounts up so that I can launch a brand around the following. I have started research on company’s that can provide other products in the future and at the very least be prepared when Amazon launches other products like tank tops, hoodies, and hats as I feel driving traffic will be more essential than ever as the platform evolves over time.
- Ebay- all I really did this month was ship items that sold and because my inventory was around 500 items I was able to have a pretty good month! I have been holding my store at a 20% off sale and am starting to clear out some of the inventory that I have at the moment and am going to be more selective in the future when I buy and list focusing on vintage clothing and clothing from the 90’s. I will not be doing much with eBay for the next few months as mu main focus right now is to maximize my position on Merch by Amazon early. I will be back to this soon though and will continue to show my sales on YouTube!
