082: An "Uncomfortable" Merch By Amazon Post I'm Responding To
Michael Essany of MerchMomentum.com wrote a thought-provoking article about the FUTURE of Merch By Amazon. I loved everything about it, and have always wondered if anyone else felt the way I did. Glad to know I'm not alone. In this episode I share my thoughts on the future of MBA and work does/doesn't work today.

080: $4,000 / Month on Merch By Amazon - How Many Uploads?

079: Giving Up On Merch By Amazon? Told You This Would Happen!
When you've been earning online for as long as I have, the patterns start to look very familiar. A free, money-making program like Merch By Amazon (MBA) gets hot quickly, and everyone flocks to it. After a few years, people begin complaining it "no longer works" or "it's too saturated." I told you this would happen, and to just hang in there because Amazon will start being more selective about who they let in, and the copycat problem will get better. Is it more competitive? Of course it is, and they still need to get the theft/copycat problems resolved. However, things have improved, and I'm optimistic based on my recent earnings and changes they've made. I've sold a ton of phone cases in 2021, and noticing some positive trends with my earnings after things started to slow down in 2019. In this episode I'm talking about everything good about Merch By Amazon in 2021. I hope you haven't given up on it!

076: Are POD "Gurus" Like Me Ruining Print on Demand?
Do you know what happens when you teach people how to make money online? It opens the door for spammers and people who find loopholes in "the system." So what does that mean? Am I going to stop teaching? Should you avoid print on demand in 2021 and beyond? Nope...and nope again! You just have to take long-term approaches and utilize strategies that are unpopular. If there's one thing I've learned about making money online is people always gravitate to the popular strategies that appear to be fast and easy. This can work to your advantage if you're willing to go the extra mile. That's what I've done with print on demand, and I have no regrets about teaching this OR utilizing different traffic strategies. In this episode you will discover how you can stabilize your print on demand T-shirt income in a space that is becoming very crowded and filled with spammers.

075: Does Having Professional Software Increase Your Print on Demand Income? Is it Overrated?
If you are new to print on demand, no doubt you've felt intimidated -- especially if you don't come from a design background or formal training. It's very easy to fall into the trap of assuming you need to be a skilled artist to make any worthwhile money. This could not be further from the truth. In fact, I know several trained artists who struggle mightily with print on demand in spite of all their education and design experience. The reason is that making money with print on demand is not just about the art. It's often more about the message and finding a niche to serve. So when should you consider investing in software? Do you even need to? The answer will vary, and I'll share my story to hopefully help you make a decision that is right for YOU. ********** If you'd like to enroll in one of my courses and learn the print on demand business quickly, head on over to http://www.passiveshirtprofits.com/courses

067: Comparing My April RedBubble Sales on Niche vs. Non-Niche Accounts
One of the best decisions I made in late 2017 and early 2018 is to start creating more niche shops -- where all the designs cater to a more specific audience. My stats show on every POD site that I upload to that the niche shops outperform the multi-topic shops. Listen as I share some details about two of my RedBubble accounts for the month of April 2020. Both shops were created around the same time and the performance is not even close. How you decide to setup your shop and who you target will make a DRASTIC difference in how it performs over time.
