Remember the Christmas song about the 12 days of Christmas?
it’s playing in my head now hahaha, on the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me—– I am sure you know the rest of the song.
Well, in this case, I am your true love, that is giving you a gift of owning a printables business, by telling you 12 reasons you should own a printables( passive income business) in 2019.
1 Passive income business:
Printables is a passive income business meaning that once you have designed it and set it up, it just keeps on bringing you income so long as people desire to buy it. If you have been looking for passive income opportunities, then this is one you should not miss out on.
Who does not like the fact that you can wake up and do whatsoever you need to do while your business is running by itself practically.
In case you are thinking about how to start this business, then you need not stress, I just finished building my course on Newbie Printables business.
A course that teaches you how to start a printables business from finding your niche to the cost of startup.
Here is what a person who took the course had to say
I love that this course is geared towards newbie. I love beautiful printables and have been secretly envious of those that create such items. And now I can too!

2 You can do it as a side hustle:
You know how you can give yourself that dang excuse, but I am working and I am already doing a lot, I don’t have the time.
This business can be a side hustle too, you don’t need to do it full time if you don’t want to.
Think of how you can block out an hour in your time schedule to use it to create printables.
You can then upload it and market it during your break time at work.
By the time it starts bringing you an income you will know why I call it the biggest passive income business of our time.
In case you are that mama that is hassled and don’t know how to plan your time, you are in good luck.
3 it can be done by anyone with minimal skills and a desire to start:
Anyone can start a printables business, I mean it as long as you can click, drag and drop something then you can do it.
All you need to know is to first plan out your concept on a sheet.
Once your concept has been designed with a planning sheet, the rest is easy.
You don’t have to be a pro in designing for you to be able to do this.
Hear what someone who took this course had to say
I learned a lot watching you design your bundle of Thanksgiving printables. You gave me so many ideas and showed me I don’t have to be an expert in graphic design.
4 The market is booming:
The market for printables is booming, there is a constant trend of demand during the year with particular peaks in January for planners.T his because at the beginning of every year people love to plan out their lives and business.
Take a look at these graphs from Google trend.
From the chart, you can see that there is a breakout in demand for 2019 planners.
6 You can turn any experience you have into a printable product :
People often ask, how do I know that I can create a printable product? I expect it should be for people who are business savvy?
My answer, do you have any experience at all? do you desire to earn a passive income from it? then you can create a printables product and turn it into a passive income business.
Think of it, if you are a cleaner you can make a printables product that creates cleaning guidelines for homes or offices.
Are you are Gardner ? you can create printable guidelines for starting and tending your garden.
If you love to cook, you can create a 3-month menu plan for someone who wants to lose weight or even eat healthy.
Are you a fitness coach? you can make a printables for someone who wants a plan for keeping fit.
So long as you have an experience, then you can create a printable product about it.
7 It’s a digital download product- no shipping cost:
The best part about this passive income business is that its a digital download.
You don’t ship nada, you don’t get missing goods.
if it refuses to download, then you download it again nothing lost, nothing missing, nothing broken; shalom shalom like they say in the Hebrew language. Lol
8 Minimal startup costs:
A printables business can be started with as little as 40 dollars, of course, you will need to invest more into it to make your business grow.
But if you wanted the basics, you can start with as little as 40 dollars.
I did a cost breakdown for anyone who wanted to start the business in my
Newbie printables business course, To take this course simply click below
The course is going for 9.99USD for now, this is the lowest this course will go for before I launch it fully and the price will go up.
People who took this course said they are willing to pay more for this course so you better grab it now before the price disappears.
9- Even if you are lazy, (hate stress) you can do this:
I don’t like to say you are lazy because you are not, if you have been reading this post up to this point then you definitely are not lazy.
Lazy people don’t read.
So I will just adjust that term to you hate stress lol.
Yes, you can do this business because it’s so easy and fun to do that you will forget that you are working.
I love to make quotes that people can print and put on their walls at home, it doesn’t feel like I am working when I am making those quotes.
Trust me I have more fun thinking of ways to encourage people with my quotes.
Here is a sample of what I sell in my online store
10- Because you need that extra income:
Raise your hand if you don’t want more money or income? I mean if you don’t want more, you could send it to me because I need it to help others out Lol.
But seriously, one of the reasons I like to make more than I need is so I can use it to help out those in need.
I have tons of people I wish I could help every day.
I have relatives who need my help, in fact, I just lost an aunt last month who left 2 kids behind and I am thinking of how to help them to get an education and have a better life.
That’s why I will never be averse to making more money because I know it will enlarge my capacity to help others.
So if you are like me and you need that more income, then you should consider starting a printables business
11- Because I will teach you how to start easily:
You don’t have to bug yourself about any research.
I will teach you how to start, I will work you through the process.
I have a course where I already taught some initial aspect on how to start this passive income business.
By the time you finish the first part of this course, you will gain clarity.
The second part of the course is on the burner right now and will be up for grabs so why not choose to start now.
12-You can finally check off that to do list of starting a home business:
You know that every year resolution you have always had about starting a business that never works out
You put it on your list and you never get to check it off as done.
Now 2019 is around the corner, don’t let the new year run through with that idea still sitting in your mind when it can turn into a real business that is bring ing you a passive income.
For example, when you have grammatical errors on your website.
If there’s one thing that will make people question whether you’re the real deal or not.
it’s seeing fundamental spelling and grammatical errors on your site.
The same can also be said of low-quality photos.
Don’t take any chances with your website! to avoid such issues make use of tools like Grammarly to proofread and check your posts before publishing.
2-A Uniform Look
To build trust in business, its got to start from within the organization itself.
It’s hard to trust an organization if it looks like they don’t even trust themselves.
For example when different departments in your business seem to be singing from different hymn sheets.
As in, there’s no cohesion that unifies the entire company, such as when different workers use different signature styles, product packaging seems disparate, and departments use different versions of the company logo.
While we know that starting a home business or any organization at all is the starting point for most people, building trust in business and winning your customer loyalty is a more sustainable way of keeping in business for long.

Care packages are carefully curated comfort items which are sent to people who are away from home.
Such people may include soldiers, students, grandparents, or even sick people who are hospitalized.
So how do you turn this seemingly comfort related idea into a care package business?
Follow me as I unveil to you how to start a gift basket business
Why Care package business
Care packages are often personal, meaning that they are specially handpicked for the comfort of the receiver, this means that whoever chooses to do this type of business must be someone who is detailed and has a good eye for beautiful and inexpensive stuff that will make the receiver feel special.
For example, designitbyyourselfgiftbaskets.com is a company that prides itself in offering you the option of curating your own gift basket such that it’s personal to you.
The idea of this business is to create a feeling of having people who are thinking of you sending something to you to let you know that you are being held in high esteem.
I was a little girl who had just gone to the boarding school when I got what I would call my first care package.
You see it was my first time of moving out very far away from my home.
Having moved to another state to attend a high school which was a boarding school, I remember how I was just in my class when I was sent for by my Principal.
Wondering what I had done, I went to the Principal’s office, I did not know my Dad had sent me a care package, so my attention was needed to access it.
I can still recall my Dads friends’ name who brought that care package and how it made me feel.
This is to tell you that the feeling that is created by such a business is incomparable, especially if the person has been away from home for a while.
An example of a care package can be the carefully crafted bundled offers we have in our online coffee store for the coffee enthusiasts who loves to travel with his own coffee.
So to start a care package business: here is what you need to know
You have to decide what type of niche you will like to serve.
Will it be College students, or Military personnel or even elderly people who live in care facilities away from their kids.
Nailing down a niche will help you plan better on how to market your business to the right people.
Ways you can segment your care package business
-Occassion gift baskets
-Holiday Gift basket
-Specialty gift basket care package
-Pet lovers carepackage
-College gift basket
-Custom built care packages
How do you intend to source for your inventory ?
Will you carry inventory or will you have an arrangement with all the sellers of your gifts options so that you can easily place your order once your order has been taken.
You also have to decide if you will like to make room for people to make choices from your inventory or perhaps they could give you their own list which they had like you to fulfill and package and send to their loved ones.
Because I will probably prefer that you run this care package business out of your home, I will advise that you give room for customization so that people can get the best of what they want.
Remember that when they are satisfied with your services, they will tell others about their experience.
Because there is no price that we can place on making someone feel good, especially for a loved one, people are often willing to pay a good amount to send such care packages to their loved ones that they have not seen in a while.
How do you structure your pricing, remember that in cases where you have to shop for a list, you are spending much more than you will when they pick your already available inventory.
You know, running a care package business is actually a service you are offering because you are taking off the stress of them running around to put together such priceless comfort items for their loved ones, so remember to price your goods appropriately to reflect your costs.
When you decide you want to start a gift basket business, you will like to know where you want to sell your services.
Will it be in a brick and mortar store? I don’t advise that, it’s too costly to pay a hefty rent before you discover whether you are making sales or not
What do I advise? start an online shop
An online shop will give you the flexibility of opening your business in as little as one day. Once you have all your pictures and products ready to go, then you are good to go.
I started an online store with a shop provider named Wix, it did not take me long before I set it up.
This post is about that momma who may not want to start a full-fledged business but wants to make money from home. In this post, I want to describe7 activities that you can do at home to make money from home without necessarily running it as a full-time business. It does not mean it’s not hard work but it’s like a side hustle that brings you that extra income while you stay home to take care of your kids.
Most of this ideas are not full-time businesses, this is not the place where I ask you to start a Blog, because I know that Blogging is a full-time job if you want to make a success of it. These are called side hustles for a reason, they should not detract from you doing what you normally do.
So here we go
If you are what people call a wordsmith, then its time to use your skills to make money from it. When you go to places like Upwork and freelancer.com you will find that people are posting their Gigs, that is advertising their projects for someone to help them with.
Registering on such sites will give you the opportunity to sell your skills for potential income. If you are really good at copywriting you can have the opportunity to charge people who need copies written for their products which they want to sell. Another way you can make money is by registering with sites like Digital Nomads and watching out for companies that are looking to hire writers for their blogs or websites. The good thing about freelance writing is that you get to choose your own timing and how much work you want to do.
This a cool way of making money without having to carry people in your car.The good thing about this idea is that you can just load up your kids into the car, have a wonderful ride while making money at the same time, how cool is that.
Companies like Doordash have restaurants signed up with them who then have freelance workers like you sign up with them to help them do deliveries. The good thing is that you get to choose your working time. Another company that partners with people to help do their delivery is postmates, they do all kinds of delivery for their customers.
Are you a person who loves shopping, there is something for you to do, you can sign up with companies like thumbtack a platform that connects personal shoppers with those who need their services in that area. Personal shopping often is interwoven with personal styling, so you can find yourself thinking of taking it to a full-time business as you help more people do their shopping and styling.
Web search evaluator:
A web search evaluator analyzes search results for quality and relevance. It’s a job that algorithms do but the only issue is that it lacks the human angle to it. People are often hired by companies like Appen to help do these tasks.. You can also get to rate videos and ads quality while at it. The only downside to this job is that it is repetitive and boring and sometimes your project may end without you getting another.
Online surveys are the king of side hustles if you are willing to sign up to as many as possible and be patient enough to take the surveys to make you money. It’s a major way some people make money from home, it may come in different ways, some require that you take their surveys as they are sent your way. Some pay you cash while for some you get points which you can trade for your own needs. Example of such survey companies is Swagbucks, pinecone researchopinion post, survey junkie.
You can join companies that are looking for transcribers for their business. A Transcriptionist help transcribe audio recordings into written formats. You can also join platform like Upwork where you advertise yourself as a transcriber and get to bid on transcription jobs posted on their platform. The good thing about doing transcribing as a side hustle is that it requires little skills, all you need is your ability to listen intently and write down what you hear. An example of companies that hire transcribers is Rev
Doshapp is a new app that is still in its beta testing phase but you get paid to do your shopping in participating companies.what is more, you get to make money from other people when they use your referral link to sign up.

They include Using the Dosh app, registering for online surveys, web search evaluator and delivery. As you become more comfortable, you can then add freelance writing, personal shopping, and transcription.
