How To Get Started With Merch By Amazon

Merch by Amazon is another income stream that I started about a year ago. I’m very appreciative of the income it brings in for as little work as I do. The whole process is extremely simple and it’s a great way to get started making money online.

If you haven’t already, make sure to apply to join Merch By Amazon, I’m not sure of their approval process, all I know that every few months they approve more sellers. Do this now! Don’t delay. Go to www.merch.amazon.com to get started.

Step #1: Choose A Niche/Theme

First things first, you want to choose what theme your t-shirts will be around. I know some marketers simply look at what’s trending and come up with designs.

It’s up to you. If you already have an audience or niche you’re in you can obviously create related designs. This does involve some creativity.

Step #2: Come Up With Designs

I use the Evernote app in my phone and keep all my t-shirt ideas. Think of images, sayings, puns, hashtags, etc. that would make a shirt attractive to your audience.

Think of trends that are happening in your niche. Funny shirts, catchy sayings, and eye-catching designs always sell well.

Step #3: Create or Order Designs 

I’m no designer, I might be able to design a Kindle cover or two but I’m not skilled enough to create t-shirt designs. I order my designs on Fiverr. My designer is amazing and always gets the concept right.

I pay $15 for a design that includes an image. It’s less on Fiverr if you only want text.

Your t-shirt design needs to be 4500px x 5400px and 300DPI. Of course, it must be original, so make sure you’re not using anyone’s trademarked or copyrighted work.

Of course, the design must be original, so make sure you’re not using anyone’s trademarked or copyrighted work.

You can also create your own design, you can use programs like PicMonkey or Canva, ensure that whatever font you use that you have commercial rights to (look for items that are royalty free).

Step #4: Upload Design To Merch 

Now the fun part! First things first, login to your dashboard and select the button that says “Upload Finished Work.”

Next, press the upload button and select the design from your computer. You can also upload a design for the back of your shirt as well by clicking on the “back” button. Then select “Save Selection and Continue.”

Then you’ll come to the “Configure Your Shirt” section. First, select your shirt type. You can choose between the Anvil Relaxed Fit and the Premium Brand. I suggest going with the premium brand, your customers will thank you for it later.

Plus, you don’t want any unrelated reviews about the quality on your shirt listing, this can be avoided by going premium.

Pick 5 t-shirt colors. Choose fit type: Men, Women, and or Children. Set your shirt cost, at the time of writing this I’ve been pricing my shirts at $16.99 using the Premium Brand. It’s totally up to you though.

Select “Save selection and continue.”

Additionally, you want to add your product details.

Brand name, which can be the name of your website/brand. Enter the “Title Of Your Project,” this will most likely be the actual text that’s on your shirt design if you have text. If not, simply name the t-shirt something relevant. Keep the search engines in mind when doing so.

I leave the “Key Product Features” section blank. Finally, enter your product description.

At last, you’ll come to a menu that will give you the option to save the design as a draft, do a sample link (they will send the link to your t-shirt on Amazon so you can review it), or relase the desing immediately into the marketplace.

I suggest you get the sample link sent to you for your few shirts until you get the process down, and also to just look over your work.

Keep In Mind…

When your account is new Merch may put a limit on the number of designs you’re able to sell. I’m silly, I only have six designs at the time of writing this but I remember when I was only allowed 25. Now I’m able to upload 10 a day and have 500 total.

It’s time to get to work! 🙂

Thanks for visiting, I hope you take action and get started with Merch By Amazon today!

It’s been a while since I went in pointed Godaddy my nameservers over to Bluehost. I use Godaddy to host all my domain names, it’s just easier and more organized that way. Since it’s been so long, it looks like Godaddy has changed their interface up a bit so I wanted to provide this tutorial for those who need it or may be new to this.

Since it’s been so long, it looks like Godaddy has changed their interface up a bit so I wanted to provide this tutorial for those who may be creating a new website or is simply in the need their Godaddy nameservers pointed at the host they are using.

Step #1: Login to your Godaddy account. You may have to get your customer number from your email to login to Godaddy.

Step #2:  Click on your name at the top right-hand corner of the Godaddy website and select “Manage Domains”.

Step #3: Under “Manage” click on the three dots, in the new window that opens up, select “Manage DNS”.  DNS simply means Domain Name Servers.

Step #4: Scroll down to where it says “Nameservers” and click “Change.”

Step #5: Under the drop-down menu select “Custom” as your nameserver type. Then, copy and paste  NS1.BLUEHOST.COM and NS2.BLUEHOST.COM into the Nameserver boxes and click save.

 

Then you’re all set. Congrats, you have successfully redirected your domain name nameservers to your hosting!
