12 reasons you should own a printables business(passive income) in 2019.

why you should start a passive income business in 2019

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.

I wrote a post on how to organize your time in this post, you will find apps that I listed in that post that will help you out.

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

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.

Start your journey to a new business by signing up for this course.

6 secrets about Printables Business you should know

6 secrets about Printables business

In my post the Ultimate guide to a Printables business, I wrote extensively about how to start a home business selling different types of printables. If you want to know what types of software to use and where you could sell your Printable designs then get to that post and read it.

In this post, I am going to share with you 6 secrets about a Printables business that you should know. I will be dealing with such questions as; how to make printables that sell, what are the key things to look out for in making printable designs so as to ensure that your designs are popular. Finally, I will also deal with the best selling digital items on Etsy.

Some people have often asked the question how much money can you make from selling Printables ?and I often think, what limit is there to the designs that we see daily, if there is no limit to what you see as designs daily, whether its on paper or canvas or even on clothing materials, mugs and beddings, then there is no end to how much you can really make. It might not be a get rich quick scheme, but if you are consistent and people love your work. You will definitely make a living out of it.

Printables designs have been with us since man learned how to draw, the advent of design software has made it easier for people to sit down on their computer, design stuff or even think up a quote and create very beautiful designs with it. And as long as men always seek to beautify their personal spaces then you are in business, so there is really no end to how much you can make from a printable designs business.

For the sake of not throwing around figures, I know that Sarah Titus makes close to 50,000 dollars per month selling her printable designs and also binders from her online store. This I believe she has probably surpassed by now because I am on her email list and I get her emails. So I know for sure that you can make a killing just using your design skills.

Now on to the Secrets about Printables Business you should know

1-Your design is key

The first of the secrets about Printables business is your design. A digital printable is a piece of art or quote or even a binder that is first seen before it is bought, this means that you have to have a design that is appealing to the eye. If you make designs that are not appealing, then you may find it difficult to convince the buyer to buy. Therefore ensure that your designs are appealing visually.

Make use of light colors that are bright and easily noticeable, ensure that you leave lots of white space to enable contrast to play a big role in getting peoples attention to your printables.

I will always advise too that you keep your designs simple and classic. People love it when a design is simple and easy on the eyes. A jumpy graphic that gives people a lot of movements here and there may not necessarily work, but to be fair, this is my personal preference and I have also seen a simple quote sell out on Amazon.

 

The content of your designs.

The 2nd of the secrets about Printables business is your content is important.

A printable design is used to convey a message be it a wall art, a quote or a binder, the most important this is that the content is top notch and superb. For example, a kid printable wall art should have friendly kids artworks that appeal to kids, it should not be complex and difficult to understand.

Depending on the functionality you had in mind, your design should deliver the message loud and clear. For example, I love to encourage people via my coffeesantea product, so I created a wall art quote that you can put in a coffee shop that is based on both coffee an encouragement.

I posted it on my Instagram page and got a lot of comments and reactions to that post. That’s is because the message was loud and clear. People felt encouraged just reading it, and it made me feel like I had made an impact with this design

3-Marketing:

The 3rd part of the secrets about Printables business is strong marketing skills.

After designing your Printables, you will want to sell it right, the secret to marketing your printable designs is first knowing who you designed it for, that way you can carve out your target market and begin to work towards selling to them.

Because printable designs are a highly visual product, I will advise that you ensure that the first platform you hit is Instagram, this because you get to display beautiful pictures of your designs, while also using the right hashtags to attract your consumers. Another place where you should also be active is Pinterest, this is because 70 percent of printable business consumers are mostly women, whether it has to do with kids, blogging or even binders for the home. Women are more likely to buy from you than men, so ensure that you go to platforms where they are available and be there. Plus Pinterest is a good traffic source for your business too, you don’t want to miss out on that.

 

4-Choosing the right Niche:

There is nothing like trying to be everything to everyone, it will likely not work, except you are a magician, that is why this 4th secret is very important.  Of all the points I have mentioned in the secrets of Printables business, this is the one that takes precedence as it sets the tone for the rest.

It’s important that you choose the right niche if you want to make an impact in your printables business. If you want to know the types of niches available in the Printables business, then you can read it up on my previous post.

You can choose to combine two niches if they complement each other for example, mom and baby niche or Business printables and home business designs. The most important thing is that you understand your market and you know how to find them. I had already mentioned some niches in my previous post so I will not repeat them here but if you want to know the trending ones this year here it is

Planners: They are a huge market right now on Etsy and if you are someone who is just starting out, I will recommend you try your hand on these

-Calendar Planners

-Blog post planners

-Monthly and weekly planners

-Fitness and health trackers

-Homemaking Planners

-Meal Planners.

-Hand lettering Binders

5-Functionality

The   5th secret about Printables business you should know is functionality. The thing you have to consider as a printable business owner or someone who want to start one is how functional is your printables business. Can people easily understand how to use it? Does your marketing strategy convey to the users what this planner or printable design will do for them? You have to be willing to demonstrate how your printable designs can be used so that people can see the beauty.

For example, if you have made a wall art, you must show how beautiful it looks by showing a picture of the wall art on the wall. That way, the buyer looks at it and knows that he or she will like to have such a wall art hanging in the house.

To achieve this effect, you do not necessarily have to hang the picture yourself and snap it, you can use a software that helps you to achieve that effect If you wish.  A good software that enables you to do so is wallapp.

You can also inform them where it can be used and also provide whatever help that is necessary to make it more appealing. If you are making a binder, have you designed your binder in such a way that it has enough offset for punching the holes for the spiral binding? These are the considerations you should make while displaying your designs or demonstrating your product.

In designing a product that must sell, you have to do whatever possible to get your buyers attention to the point of purchase.

6-Customer service is King.

Because you are selling a digital art does not mean you should just stick it there and expect the buyers to figure out how to access your product after they have paid, that is why this last of the secrets about Printables business is very important. If you have worked so hard to attract a customer, don’t mess it up with poor customer service.

You should have clear written instructions on how to access their file download after payment. You should also provide necessary technical help if they find it difficult to access your product after they have paid, an excellent customer service will keep them coming back to your store, plus they will give you reviews that will convince other people to buy from you.

Qualities of a Printables design that sells

-Beautiful design and font

-A clear demonstration of product use

-Classic and simplicity

-Funny and creative designs

-Good use of color complements

Key things to help make your designs popular

-Offer Freebies

-Offer little to nothing  some of your designs, for example, create 1 dollar deals in your online store so that if someone is just browsing through but don’t want to make a big purchase they can purchase the small-priced ones

-Create a buzz by collaborating with other people to launch your collection

-Look for ways creative ways of putting your designs out there, like making designs that are catchy and fun and posting daily on your Instagram page.
