I have five print on demand sites, a website, a blog, all the social media to go along with that…. seems like a lot of right? How do I manage it?
It started with Redbubble.
Redbubble was my first POD shop. I have been with this site for a little around three and a half years.
I wanted to build up my portfolio with this site and get the feel for how Print on Demand sites work. I did exactly that, as soon as I felt I got the hang of it and had a decent portfolio going….. I started a Society6 shop.
Then after a while I added a Zazzle shop.
After a while, I added a Teepublic shop
My newest shop is Threadless.
All of my Print on Demand shops have the same bio and the same header.
“Hi! I’m Abby Juli, and I created Purelifephotoss to share my art with the world. I am a digital artist that takes inspiration from everyday life! I’m also an animal lover even creating a series to help the animals that need a second chance.
I have had my photography recognized by Canon, National Geographic and several small magazines. I have had my digital work liked by some of my favorite bands, such as Shinedown!
My website is: www.purelifephotoss.com
If you have bought something from me, please show me by using the #purelifephotoss on social media.
Thank you for looking at my work!”
Tips I use for many shops.
I built up my portfolio on Redbubble and Society6, then added them to the rest of my shops. My Teepublic shop and my Threadless shop aren’t as built up at them, but I am working on it. I try to add one or two works a day to these shops.
Each shop has the same designs, but each shop has its own market. My Redbubble shop I sell mainly cell phone cases, t-shirts, and stickers. While on Society6 I sell a lot of bedding like throw pillows, and tote bags. Teepublic I sell a lot of my t-shirts that were inspired by music. Zazzle I will get a random sale once in a while, honestly, I set this shop up then left. I focus on the shops that work.
When it’s time to add new work to all of my shops, I open up the uploader to all the sites in new tabs, adding the same titles/tags and descriptions to them.
