Back in May 2018, I learned about Amazon Merch. I already had the designs on my site up but thought that I struck a gold mine of information when I learned about Amazon Merch. Get some of my designs in front of the people's eyeballs in one of the biggest online retailer? Yes Please.
So, I put in my application. It took about 10 days to get my approval but I was so happy I got approved I remember the exact location when I found out. Then I am only allowed 10 designs so I had to be picky. I can't just put any design up there. I had to have a heavy hitter or 10. Because once you sell a certain amount of shirts, you get bumped to 25 designs or products. Then, once you sell a certain amount of those 25 designs, you get bumped up to 100. The more designs you have, the greater of a chance that they will appeal to someone and they will buy it.
I didn't even realize it. I put up 10 designs, did not try them out just let them sit. I went about my life and summer as usual. I check my bank account and I have a debit from Amazon.
Now, there are plenty of credits to Amazon and I would have believed that over what I read because I love Amazon Prime fully but, I had sold some shirts!!!
So I had to reassess....I doubled down on my efforts with Amazon. Sold a few more. Tested out the quality of the fabrics. Got bumped to 25 designs/products. Tested out the designs. Corrected the designs. Wore my designs. I began to heavily work on my Amazon Merch designs and now I am in the 100 Tier of Designs/Products.
I have sold a few shirts and I have personally bought some to ensure quality. Just like the Beauty and Brains shirt I am wearing in this image. Y'all...the shirts on this site are comfy and the shirts on Amazon are comfy. I have actually slept in them a few times!! I chose to put just about all of them fitted because they look awesome on the fitted shirts. As of today's date, I now have 61 shirts/popsockets/long sleeve tshirts up on amazon.com and here is my link that pops up in a new tab https://amzn.to/2CKlgoD.
I am super excited about my journey so far on Merch with Amazon. I recently got approved to Advertise with them so, I am super stoked for what's ahead!! Stay tuned! Here are a few of my favorites! The shirts are clickable if you wanted to check out my designs on Amazon!!
