00:00:00 00:00:04 Oh what's up guys in this video I'll be
00:00:01 00:00:06 going over how to guys actually built a
00:00:04 00:00:08 hundred and fifty thousand dollar
00:00:06 00:00:10 t-shirt business selling on the merge
00:00:08 00:00:12 fan was on platform and somebody going
00:00:10 00:00:15 in the kind of depth on how exactly they
00:00:12 00:00:16 did it and what these guys are so if you
00:00:15 00:00:19 don't know my ready my name is Carter
00:00:16 00:00:21 Maxwell I'm a 17 year old entrepreneur
00:00:19 00:00:22 and I go at the nickname of the high
00:00:21 00:00:24 school hustler and if you're trying to
00:00:22 00:00:25 create an online business and make money
00:00:24 00:00:27 while you sleep
00:00:25 00:00:28 then this that Shane refused to go ahead
00:00:27 00:00:30 and hit that subscribe button so guys
00:00:28 00:00:32 before I even get to the video I just
00:00:30 00:00:35 want to put a disclaimer out there no I
00:00:32 00:00:36 have not made anywhere near a hundred
00:00:35 00:00:38 fifty thousand dollars selling on the
00:00:36 00:00:40 merch bands on platform although I do
00:00:38 00:00:44 have a lot of experience myself selling
00:00:40 00:00:45 on emerge by Amazon but no I've not made
00:00:44 00:00:47 that much and a lot of people are gonna
00:00:45 00:00:49 think that this is a clickbait video but
00:00:47 00:00:50 really it's not these two guys who
00:00:49 00:00:52 really did do a hundred and fifty
00:00:50 00:00:54 thousand dollars in sales I marched by
00:00:52 00:00:56 Amazon I'm gonna kind of go over who
00:00:54 00:00:58 exactly these guys are how they did it
00:00:56 00:01:01 so I have two different artikles with me
00:00:58 00:01:04 ones by CNBC and it kind of has like a
00:01:01 00:01:05 little woman a rundown of who exactly
00:01:04 00:01:08 this guy is and how he did it and this
00:01:05 00:01:09 is actually one of the guys blogs that
00:01:08 00:01:11 really goes into depth so I'm gonna kind
00:01:09 00:01:13 of go over both but I'm just gonna start
00:01:11 00:01:16 out with this video first put this full
00:01:13 00:01:16 screen
00:02:00 00:02:06 alright guys that is the video I'll have
00:02:04 00:02:07 actually both of these links in the
00:02:06 00:02:09 description of this video so you go
00:02:07 00:02:11 check it out and read it yourself
00:02:09 00:02:13 anyways I'm gonna go out ahead and skip
00:02:11 00:02:15 this one this one's just kind of a brief
00:02:13 00:02:17 description I'm actually gonna go to his
00:02:15 00:02:20 blog and on his blog it's like really
00:02:17 00:02:22 really cool and first thing that caught
00:02:20 00:02:25 my eye is he actually sold an account
00:02:22 00:02:27 previous to this for 73 thousand dollars
00:02:25 00:02:29 which is really really cool that's a
00:02:27 00:02:32 pretty big check and just like I said um
00:02:29 00:02:36 March Bahamas on launched late in 2015
00:02:32 00:02:38 and obviously he took advantage of this
00:02:36 00:02:41 new platform and hopped on it right away
00:02:38 00:02:45 and I did as well and later on in my
00:02:41 00:02:47 youtube channel I'll go into exactly
00:02:45 00:02:48 what happened with Man March Amazon
00:02:47 00:02:50 account and why I'm not making the
00:02:48 00:02:52 amount of money that I was basically I
00:02:50 00:02:54 was making a really good amount of money
00:02:52 00:02:56 and but I was doing some things that
00:02:54 00:02:58 were against the Terms of Service that
00:02:56 00:03:01 had not known about and end up getting
00:02:58 00:03:03 my account suspended but anyways let
00:03:01 00:03:05 just gets how these guys actually made
00:03:03 00:03:09 over a hundred and fifty thousand
00:03:05 00:03:09 dollars um see here so if you want to
00:03:09 00:03:11 read this on your own
00:03:09 00:03:12 once again it's gonna be in the
00:03:11 00:03:14 description he's gonna go over kind of
00:03:12 00:03:17 the basics what the merchants on
00:03:14 00:03:19 platform is and merged Amazon is a
00:03:17 00:03:21 print-on-demand t-shirt service to
00:03:19 00:03:23 basically where you can upload your
00:03:21 00:03:26 unique design to then sell it on Amazon
00:03:23 00:03:28 and if it sells Amazon will then fulfill
00:03:26 00:03:30 it and ship that t-shirt to the customer
00:03:28 00:03:33 and you're gonna receive a royalty which
00:03:30 00:03:35 is a profit okay so that's kind of how
00:03:33 00:03:37 the program works
00:03:35 00:03:40 um how to sign up you can just look up
00:03:37 00:03:41 march of amazon.com and there's a little
00:03:40 00:03:45 sign up page just enter like your name
00:03:41 00:03:47 email if any fo you already have like a
00:03:45 00:03:50 website established for teacher t-shirts
00:03:47 00:03:53 or not but if you don't it's okay
00:03:50 00:03:57 how to research niches that's a pretty
00:03:53 00:03:59 good one where is it I mean I've gone
00:03:57 00:04:00 into that and basically I mean what it
00:03:59 00:04:01 said in the video is he would just find
00:04:00 00:04:04 t-shirt designs that were already
00:04:01 00:04:05 selling and he he wouldn't copy them but
00:04:04 00:04:08 he would base the
00:04:05 00:04:10 design idea off of it okay and basically
00:04:08 00:04:12 there's already people buying that
00:04:10 00:04:14 t-shirt around that niche or around that
00:04:12 00:04:16 area and so you would just create a
00:04:14 00:04:19 design similar to it and sell it as well
00:04:16 00:04:21 what you need to create designs it
00:04:19 00:04:23 sounds like he actually used Adobe
00:04:21 00:04:24 Photoshop but when I used to make
00:04:23 00:04:27 t-shirts and stuff like that I'm out
00:04:24 00:04:30 actually outsource them and just to get
00:04:27 00:04:32 a little bit into what I did as a seller
00:04:30 00:04:35 I probably got into about the same time
00:04:32 00:04:38 he did when I was about 16 about a year
00:04:35 00:04:40 ago I was making designs like crazy I
00:04:38 00:04:42 was fly putting up right after school
00:04:40 00:04:45 I'd come home spend a couple hours on it
00:04:42 00:04:48 a forty to fifty signs per day because
00:04:45 00:04:50 right when they first launched cuz at
00:04:48 00:04:51 the moment you can only list I'm a
00:04:50 00:04:53 certain amount of t-shirts per day you
00:04:51 00:04:54 can only have like a tier of like say
00:04:53 00:04:56 you started you have twenty-five designs
00:04:54 00:04:59 you can only list two t-shirts per day
00:04:56 00:05:00 and once you get to a hundred maybe you
00:04:59 00:05:02 can list I think was like I think it's
00:05:00 00:05:05 like five per day or something along the
00:05:02 00:05:07 line of that until you sell twenty-five
00:05:05 00:05:08 t-shirts then you can get moved up to
00:05:07 00:05:10 the hundreds here and tell you so a
00:05:08 00:05:12 hundred t-shirts anything you move to
00:05:10 00:05:15 the 500 tier but when it first launched
00:05:12 00:05:17 they didn't have these specifics like in
00:05:15 00:05:19 place so obviously you start out with
00:05:17 00:05:21 still like a twenty five tier but you
00:05:19 00:05:22 could sell twenty-five t-shirts pretty
00:05:21 00:05:24 quickly get to that hundred to here I
00:05:22 00:05:29 think I'd gotten all the way up to the
00:05:24 00:05:32 two thousand here by early November and
00:05:29 00:05:35 I was doing some really good money I
00:05:32 00:05:36 think by November um I was doing about a
00:05:35 00:05:38 thousand dollars per week in profit and
00:05:36 00:05:40 so that was really really good for me
00:05:38 00:05:41 especially as a 16 year old and I just
00:05:40 00:05:43 kept putting designs I mean I was
00:05:41 00:05:46 getting up a couple hundred per month um
00:05:43 00:05:48 I had I was using up work site which he
00:05:46 00:05:50 was using as well and hiring people
00:05:48 00:05:52 overseas to create design signs as well
00:05:50 00:05:53 anywhere from my guitar to two dollars
00:05:52 00:05:58 per design so I was getting extremely
00:05:53 00:06:01 cheap coming into December upwards of
00:05:58 00:06:04 5,000 dollars in profit per week and at
00:06:01 00:06:07 the time I had seven to say 800 designs
00:06:04 00:06:09 up active selling and I mean just the
00:06:07 00:06:14 money was coming in like crazy
00:06:09 00:06:17 and unfortunately coming on to 13th of
00:06:14 00:06:19 December my account was terminated they
00:06:17 00:06:21 never told me why
00:06:19 00:06:23 maybe was my designs were too closely to
00:06:21 00:06:25 the other designs they never tell you
00:06:23 00:06:27 why it was just really really
00:06:25 00:06:29 unfortunate and I've never been able to
00:06:27 00:06:31 build my current merch Amazon business
00:06:29 00:06:33 back and it's just really hard cuz now
00:06:31 00:06:35 thousands and thousands people have
00:06:33 00:06:37 flooded back into the market so that's
00:06:35 00:06:40 just a story kind of behind me in my
00:06:37 00:06:42 merch by Amazon experience anyways let's
00:06:40 00:06:45 get back to this artikle listing an
00:06:42 00:06:46 optimization keywords that's kind of
00:06:45 00:06:48 confusing to show you just kind of going
00:06:46 00:06:50 off the top of my head outsourcing you
00:06:48 00:06:51 can use Fiverr it's the most popular
00:06:50 00:06:53 especially when you're starting out you
00:06:51 00:06:56 can get design a really high quality
00:06:53 00:06:59 design for about five dollars but if you
00:06:56 00:07:00 really want to get like freelancer who
00:06:59 00:07:01 can create something cheaper like if
00:07:00 00:07:03 you're looking for
00:07:01 00:07:04 getting designs around that two to three
00:07:03 00:07:06 dollar range and go to upwork.com
00:07:04 00:07:08 selling your business how do I know
00:07:06 00:07:09 anything about selling your business but
00:07:08 00:07:13 I wish I was sold on before I got
00:07:09 00:07:14 terminated but he said he did sell one
00:07:13 00:07:17 for seventy three thousand dollars
00:07:14 00:07:20 that's really really cool
00:07:17 00:07:23 well here's the tier levels I think this
00:07:20 00:07:25 is still in place at the moment I'm not
00:07:23 00:07:27 sure about these but definitely when I
00:07:25 00:07:30 started my new account I started at 25
00:07:27 00:07:33 and I start with only could list two
00:07:30 00:07:35 t-shirts per day until I sold 25
00:07:33 00:07:37 t-shirts then he got moved up to the
00:07:35 00:07:40 hundreds here then when she would sell a
00:07:37 00:07:40 hundred t-shirts to keep moving up let's
00:07:40 00:07:43 see what else
00:07:40 00:07:47 baking tax resources dashboard that kind
00:07:43 00:07:50 of gives him different updates um this
00:07:47 00:07:52 is kind of once you get accepted um and
00:07:50 00:07:54 at the moment it's taking months to get
00:07:52 00:07:56 accepted so the reason I kind of made
00:07:54 00:07:58 this video is to kind of hopefully like
00:07:56 00:07:59 motivates you to go and sign up for an
00:07:58 00:08:01 account because you're not gonna get
00:07:59 00:08:03 accepted tomorrow you're not gonna get
00:08:01 00:08:04 accepted in a week or probably a month
00:08:03 00:08:07 it's gonna take a couple months before
00:08:04 00:08:08 you can get accepted so make sure you
00:08:07 00:08:11 sign up now just go to merge by
00:08:08 00:08:14 amazon.com and sign up it'll literally
00:08:11 00:08:16 take you two minutes but it's it's a
00:08:14 00:08:18 great way to build passive income I mean
00:08:16 00:08:20 if you can sell t-shirt for I think at
00:08:18 00:08:22 the moment if you still teach it for
00:08:20 00:08:24 $19.99 you're gonna make a seven dollar
00:08:22 00:08:26 sixty three centroidal tea in Amazon
00:08:24 00:08:29 does all the fulfillment for you so
00:08:26 00:08:31 honestly like what are you waiting for
00:08:29 00:08:32 copyright finding designs
00:08:31 00:08:34 I think copyright
00:08:32 00:08:38 I've been part of it I might have been
00:08:34 00:08:40 selling I'm so different designs or just
00:08:38 00:08:41 thought that was copyrighted and I
00:08:40 00:08:44 didn't know because I was just going at
00:08:41 00:08:45 such a fast rate I'm I wish they would
00:08:44 00:08:47 have told me but I mean Amazon they
00:08:45 00:08:49 they've been coming through and those
00:08:47 00:08:51 those bigger sellers didn't come through
00:08:49 00:08:54 and just mowing them out like crazy and
00:08:51 00:08:55 it's been really competitive lately but
00:08:54 00:08:59 it's still you can make a really good
00:08:55 00:09:00 amount selling emerged by Amazon see
00:08:59 00:09:02 what else he's got on yeah I mean this
00:09:00 00:09:03 is I'm probably gonna go through this
00:09:02 00:09:07 whole just blah like because it's just
00:09:03 00:09:10 it's probably 40 50 pages long but you
00:09:07 00:09:13 can go through it by yourself this this
00:09:10 00:09:15 an example of kind of how it works so
00:09:13 00:09:17 he's got his design right here
00:09:15 00:09:19 it's uploaded design now you can pick
00:09:17 00:09:21 t-shirts at the moment you can pick only
00:09:19 00:09:24 up to five t-shirt designs they've added
00:09:21 00:09:27 some new colors as well here he's your
00:09:24 00:09:29 price point $19.99 you'll make eight
00:09:27 00:09:33 dollars and 89 cents now this is a bit
00:09:29 00:09:37 of an older artikles from 2016 I believe
00:09:33 00:09:39 probably maybe early 2017 and the world
00:09:37 00:09:40 heaves have changed I've gone down a
00:09:39 00:09:43 little bit but you can still make some
00:09:40 00:09:45 really good money here you go this is
00:09:43 00:09:46 kind of how you create your page so it's
00:09:45 00:09:48 actually a pretty simple you just have
00:09:46 00:09:50 your brand name but you don't have to
00:09:48 00:09:52 have a brand name established he just
00:09:50 00:09:54 put passive marketing you can just put
00:09:52 00:09:56 panda t-shirt dog t-shirt if there's a
00:09:54 00:09:58 picture of dog I think the funny dog
00:09:56 00:10:00 t-shirt doesn't really matter now your
00:09:58 00:10:02 title and your key product features are
00:10:00 00:10:04 gonna be where you can rank for
00:10:02 00:10:06 different keywords and hopefully convert
00:10:04 00:10:08 that buyer into purchasing your t-shirt
00:10:06 00:10:10 so you your title is just gonna have
00:10:08 00:10:12 like a quick little description now your
00:10:10 00:10:14 bullet points are gonna be like hey like
00:10:12 00:10:16 this is a t-shirt for you if you really
00:10:14 00:10:17 love dogs going through really if you're
00:10:16 00:10:19 a huge animal up you want this t-shirt
00:10:17 00:10:21 you just want to convince them up buy it
00:10:19 00:10:23 and here you go you have two different
00:10:21 00:10:26 options you can sell on Amazon or you
00:10:23 00:10:27 can just have a sample link and it kind
00:10:26 00:10:29 of gives you an overview so that's
00:10:27 00:10:33 basically the process of just uploading
00:10:29 00:10:35 your designs and it looks like he goes
00:10:33 00:10:39 through I'm actually selling your
00:10:35 00:10:42 business here we go so I'm not sure when

00:11:05 00:11:11 mean that's it's all about just learning
00:11:07 00:11:12 from your mistakes and once again I've
00:11:11 00:11:14 never been able to build my account back
00:11:12 00:11:15 except I learned a lot and I've actually
00:11:14 00:11:17 picked up private-label
00:11:15 00:11:18 kind of right after this and I worked my
00:11:17 00:11:21 way up and doing really well with
00:11:18 00:11:23 private label at the moment as well it
00:11:21 00:11:24 looks like that's it for the artikle
00:11:23 00:11:28 actually looks like he just has some
00:11:24 00:11:30 different questions down here as well
00:11:28 00:11:33 see if we miss anything on this artikle
00:11:30 00:11:35 but yeah basically these two guys mean
00:11:33 00:11:38 work together and build this $150
00:11:35 00:11:40 thousand dollar t-shirt business I mean
00:11:38 00:11:46 you can see from this artikle this guy
00:11:40 00:11:49 was this guy was here we go he was
00:11:46 00:11:52 pushing pushing carts at Target for $8
00:11:49 00:11:54 an hour I mean he might be at the same
00:11:52 00:11:56 level you guys are when he's when he
00:11:54 00:11:57 first started and he was able to build
00:11:56 00:12:00 his way up so that's just a great
00:11:57 00:12:02 success story of how this guy working
00:12:00 00:12:04 for minimum wage was able to build this
00:12:02 00:12:07 one hundred and fifty thousand dollar
00:12:04 00:12:10 t-shirt business I was able to do it as
00:12:07 00:12:11 well until I got terminated but it was
00:12:10 00:12:14 my own fault I wish I would have
00:12:11 00:12:17 followed the rules more maybe pay more
00:12:14 00:12:22 attention to the Terms of Service I mean
00:12:17 00:12:25 it happens um looks like college yeah
00:12:22 00:12:27 I'm it's just pretty cool this is Neal I
00:12:25 00:12:29 think it's one more partner but he's the
00:12:27 00:12:31 one who also made this blog I think he
00:12:29 00:12:33 owns passive income this passive income
00:12:31 00:12:35 blog as well so that's really cool once
00:12:33 00:12:37 again both these websites will be in the
00:12:35 00:12:38 description of this video so if you guys
00:12:37 00:12:42 like to read them again on your own
00:12:38 00:12:43 you're welcome to so yeah it just kind
00:12:42 00:12:46 of goes over how he saw an opportunity
00:12:43 00:12:50 in that's when I first started March by
00:12:46 00:12:52 Amazon I'm gonna come out maybe four or
00:12:50 00:12:54 five months ago and there was maybe one
00:12:52 00:12:58 dude that was actually putting videos
00:12:54 00:12:59 out on YouTube about March by Amazon how
00:12:58 00:13:01 you can make money it was such a new
00:12:59 00:13:03 form like no one wanted to do it well I
00:13:01 00:13:04 don't want to sell t-shirts and stuff
00:13:03 00:13:07 like that and I hopped on it right away
00:13:04 00:13:10 and obviously this Neil did too and make
00:13:07 00:13:13 some really good money you still can
00:13:10 00:13:15 the only the only really downside I can
00:13:13 00:13:18 think of is that it takes a long time to
00:13:15 00:13:20 get accepted now now that people are
00:13:18 00:13:22 finding out about this program and how
00:13:20 00:13:23 Amazon does all the fulfillment you can
00:13:22 00:13:25 make t-shirts and make really good money
00:13:23 00:13:27 um lots of you have been flooding into
00:13:25 00:13:29 the program and they're not letting
00:13:27 00:13:32 everyone in at once they're doing it in
00:13:29 00:13:33 like big waves si need you need to sign
00:13:32 00:13:35 up now and get your name on that list so
00:13:33 00:13:38 you can get your account ready and get
00:13:35 00:13:40 it going because I mean I'm recording
