00:00:00 00:00:04 in today's video we're gonna cover how
00:00:01 00:00:07 to drop ship print on demand mugs
00:00:04 00:00:09 on etsy so there's two main ways to
00:00:07 00:00:11 actually drop ship on etsy one is gonna
00:00:09 00:00:12 get you in trouble and eventually going
00:00:11 00:00:14 to lead to your account getting
00:00:12 00:00:16 suspended and the other is a little bit
00:00:14 00:00:18 more difficult to set listings up in the
00:00:16 00:00:20 beginning but once you actually do it
00:00:18 00:00:21 it's fully compliant with the terms of
00:00:20 00:00:24 service and you can build a long-term
00:00:21 00:00:26 sustainable business on the platform
00:00:24 00:00:29 what you're not allowed to do is take
00:00:26 00:00:31 listings from ebay or amazon for example
00:00:29 00:00:33 or any other website and list them to
00:00:31 00:00:35 your etsy store and have that person
00:00:33 00:00:37 drop shipped to your customers okay now
00:00:35 00:00:39 what you are allowed to do is create
00:00:37 00:00:41 your own print on demand products and
00:00:39 00:00:43 then have a print-on-demand company
00:00:41 00:00:45 print those designs for you after you
00:00:43 00:00:46 get an order and this is actually a lot
00:00:45 00:00:48 easier than you think we're going to
00:00:46 00:00:50 cover that in today's tutorial now one
00:00:48 00:00:52 of the benefits of drop shipping on etsy
00:00:50 00:00:53 is that once you spend a little bit of
00:00:52 00:00:55 time to actually go through and create
00:00:53 00:00:56 the listings
00:00:55 00:00:58 it's pretty much hands off and your
00:00:56 00:01:00 listings are going to sit there they're
00:00:58 00:01:01 going to bring you traffic and if you if
00:01:00 00:01:02 you obviously create good ones they're
00:01:01 00:01:04 going to bring you sales as well right
00:01:02 00:01:05 the company that we're going to use is
00:01:04 00:01:08 going to take care of everything from
00:01:05 00:01:10 the stok monitoring to the processing
00:01:08 00:01:12 the actual orders to shipping them to
00:01:10 00:01:13 the customer to storing the inventory
00:01:12 00:01:15 and even printing the designs and
00:01:13 00:01:17 inputting the tracking number after the
00:01:15 00:01:18 order is shipped the website that we're
00:01:17 00:01:20 going to cover and that i recommend
00:01:18 00:01:22 using is called printful as you'll see
00:01:20 00:01:24 in this tutorial they're super easy to
00:01:22 00:01:27 use they have a great reputation and i
00:01:24 00:01:28 use them myself they're also super easy
00:01:27 00:01:30 to set up an account with they're super
00:01:28 00:01:32 beginner friendly and they actually help
00:01:30 00:01:34 walk you through the entire process of
00:01:32 00:01:36 connecting printful to your etsy store
00:01:34 00:01:38 and keeping everything synced that means
00:01:36 00:01:41 that your inventory your designs your
00:01:38 00:01:43 sales your customer addresses your
00:01:41 00:01:45 tracking numbers etc it'll all be synced
00:01:43 00:01:46 together and that means that that's less
00:01:45 00:01:48 things that you have to do and less
00:01:46 00:01:50 things that you need to worry about all
00:01:48 00:01:52 you'll have to worry about once you set
00:01:50 00:01:54 this up is finding hot selling products
00:01:52 00:01:56 and then listing them on your store
00:01:54 00:01:58 printful will do the rest now this also
00:01:56 00:02:00 goes without saying but you obviously
00:01:58 00:02:03 need an etsy seller account too if you
00:02:00 00:02:04 haven't already set that up as well now
00:02:03 00:02:06 i won't be covering how to actually set
00:02:04 00:02:08 up an etsy seller account or how to set
00:02:06 00:02:10 up a printful account actually how to
00:02:08 00:02:12 connect that to your etsy seller account
00:02:10 00:02:14 because once you sign up for printful
00:02:12 00:02:15 it's super easy they'll walk you through
00:02:14 00:02:18 and hold your hand through the entire
00:02:15 00:02:20 process so the first thing that you want
00:02:18 00:02:22 to do is you want to find a proven
00:02:20 00:02:24 product now if you're creative and you
00:02:22 00:02:26 want to create your own designs that
00:02:24 00:02:28 works as well although the fastest way
00:02:26 00:02:29 to get sales on any platform but
00:02:28 00:02:32 especially etsy when you're creating
00:02:29 00:02:34 print-on-demand designs is to find
00:02:32 00:02:35 what's already working on the platform
00:02:34 00:02:37 and then kind of create your own
00:02:35 00:02:39 spin-off of that right so there's a
00:02:37 00:02:40 number of different ways to do this and
00:02:39 00:02:42 if you guys want more information on you
00:02:40 00:02:43 know tutorials on how to do this in the
00:02:42 00:02:45 future let me know down in the comments
00:02:43 00:02:47 section below and i'll create those
00:02:45 00:02:49 videos for you there's a number of ways
00:02:47 00:02:51 to do this you can go incognito on a
00:02:49 00:02:53 browser and simply sit like one of the
00:02:51 00:02:56 easiest ways is to see what's suggested
00:02:53 00:02:59 to you so obviously right now currently
00:02:56 00:03:00 it's 5 25 so it's may 25th and father's
00:02:59 00:03:02 day is approaching so you're going to
00:03:00 00:03:05 see a lot of different father's day
00:03:02 00:03:05 designs so if you're going after you
00:03:05 00:03:07 know
00:03:05 00:03:09 quick sales a lot of demand that might
00:03:07 00:03:10 be something that you want to touch on
00:03:09 00:03:13 although if you're going for more
00:03:10 00:03:14 evergreen sales and long-term sales that
00:03:13 00:03:16 you don't really need to constantly be
00:03:14 00:03:19 creating designs for you might want to
00:03:16 00:03:21 avoid holidays and stuff like that right
00:03:19 00:03:23 so for the sake of not you know the
00:03:21 00:03:25 creating evergreen designs and not
00:03:23 00:03:27 wasting you know valuable time creating
00:03:25 00:03:29 listings that are only good for a short
00:03:27 00:03:31 period of time until that holiday
00:03:29 00:03:33 obviously passes we're gonna skip that
00:03:31 00:03:36 but that's one of the easiest ways now
00:03:33 00:03:37 another easy way is to find a seller so
00:03:36 00:03:38 for example like let's find one of these
00:03:37 00:03:40 things that's popular right now so
00:03:38 00:03:42 daddy's little helper or i am their
00:03:40 00:03:44 father which is kind of a spin-off on
00:03:42 00:03:46 star wars obviously
00:03:44 00:03:47 you find out like one of the popular
00:03:46 00:03:49 ones right here
00:03:47 00:03:51 and you click it and then you reverse
00:03:49 00:03:53 engineer from that seller this seller
00:03:51 00:03:56 specifically has 4 000 sales
00:03:53 00:03:57 you go to them and you see what's
00:03:56 00:03:59 popular that they're selling and then
00:03:57 00:04:00 you figure out you know reverse
00:03:59 00:04:03 engineering and check those specific
00:04:00 00:04:05 products in there against etsy as a
00:04:03 00:04:07 whole see if there's demand but not
00:04:05 00:04:09 enough supply to fit that demand and
00:04:07 00:04:10 that's just one of the simple ways right
00:04:09 00:04:11 so there's a number of ways to actually
00:04:10 00:04:13 approach this and like i said i can
00:04:11 00:04:15 create entire videos on this but i don't
00:04:13 00:04:17 want to waste your time this tutorial
00:04:15 00:04:18 specifically is just how to create
00:04:17 00:04:21 actually go through the process of
00:04:18 00:04:23 creating the print on demand mug and
00:04:21 00:04:25 then uploading it using printful to etsy
00:04:23 00:04:27 okay but the first step is finding an in
00:04:25 00:04:29 you know an in-demand design that you
00:04:27 00:04:30 can create and kind of replicate i went
00:04:29 00:04:32 through a couple and i found some cool
00:04:30 00:04:35 ones like obviously back and body hurts
00:04:32 00:04:37 is a funny play off bath and body works
00:04:35 00:04:38 um in a mug here so it's a similar
00:04:37 00:04:41 design now you do need to be careful a
00:04:38 00:04:43 little caveat here when you are creating
00:04:41 00:04:44 like store designs or anything that you
00:04:43 00:04:46 know might potentially have an
00:04:44 00:04:49 intellectual property uh you know
00:04:46 00:04:50 component to it i actually um before i
00:04:49 00:04:52 actually realized this and i actually
00:04:50 00:04:53 knew this i don't know why i went ahead
00:04:52 00:04:55 and created it was just kind of like a
00:04:53 00:04:57 brain fart at the moment but i i made a
00:04:55 00:04:59 play off like um it was like half the
00:04:57 00:05:01 target logo obviously got an
00:04:59 00:05:03 intellectual property um i think it was
00:05:01 00:05:06 yeah ip complaint on that on my etsy
00:05:03 00:05:08 store is my first one and so you know
00:05:06 00:05:10 hard lesson there but you don't want to
00:05:08 00:05:11 use anything like that now this
00:05:10 00:05:13 obviously isn't using the bath and
00:05:11 00:05:15 bodyworks logo but it is kind of walking
00:05:13 00:05:17 that gray area and that fine line so
00:05:15 00:05:19 just be careful if you're going that
00:05:17 00:05:20 route if you want to be safe i would say
00:05:19 00:05:22 just completely avoid those and then
00:05:20 00:05:23 you'll be fine all right what you first
00:05:22 00:05:25 want to do is you want to make sure that
00:05:23 00:05:27 yes there's enough demand for this but
00:05:25 00:05:28 there's also not enough supply one of
00:05:27 00:05:30 the things that you'll notike is every a
00:05:28 00:05:32 lot of people on the platform use this
00:05:30 00:05:34 kind of mimic what's working and then
00:05:32 00:05:36 create their own design for it now
00:05:34 00:05:37 that's totally fine because if you get
00:05:36 00:05:39 in early and you start to rank that
00:05:37 00:05:40 product and you get enough sales then
00:05:39 00:05:42 you're gonna shoot to the top of the
00:05:40 00:05:43 page for that and you're pretty much
00:05:42 00:05:45 gonna be ranked there against you know
00:05:43 00:05:46 maybe five to ten other sellers and
00:05:45 00:05:48 you're gonna be siphoning off sales and
00:05:46 00:05:50 anybody that gets in late there when
00:05:48 00:05:52 there's already a lot of supply is just
00:05:50 00:05:54 to stay on the lower pages and never
00:05:52 00:05:56 really get there unless they're paying
00:05:54 00:05:58 for advertising keep that in mind but if
00:05:56 00:06:00 you copy back and body hurts mug and you
00:05:58 00:06:02 take it into etsy you can see that
00:06:00 00:06:04 there's a number of these listings here
00:06:02 00:06:06 already in both you know shirts as well
00:06:04 00:06:08 as mugs all over the place so it's a bit
00:06:06 00:06:11 saturated now you could take a shot here
00:06:08 00:06:13 if you want to again it only takes like
00:06:11 00:06:15 a minute or two to create a design on
00:06:13 00:06:17 printful um probably realistikally 30
00:06:15 00:06:19 seconds to a minute doesn't take long it
00:06:17 00:06:20 doesn't take that long to design it as
00:06:19 00:06:22 you get better and better at that as
00:06:20 00:06:23 well but this is a little bit saturated
00:06:22 00:06:24 so for the sake of showing you a better
00:06:23 00:06:26 one we're gonna go for a better one now
00:06:24 00:06:28 same thing here i found another cool mug
00:06:26 00:06:30 right here and i thought this was a
00:06:28 00:06:32 funny design like and here we go again i
00:06:30 00:06:34 mean good morning so if you take that
00:06:32 00:06:37 into etsy again to just check the
00:06:34 00:06:38 overall demand on the platform you can
00:06:37 00:06:40 see that a lot of people have created
00:06:38 00:06:44 this design and a very very similar
00:06:40 00:06:45 design so this is an example of a a very
00:06:44 00:06:47 saturated product that you don't want to
00:06:45 00:06:49 create because chances are you won't be
00:06:47 00:06:51 able to rank if we go into reverse
00:06:49 00:06:53 engineering another store and you can
00:06:51 00:06:55 see that i found a store here that has a
00:06:53 00:06:57 lot of very very popular designs and
00:06:55 00:06:59 make make no mistake like popularity is
00:06:57 00:07:01 a good thing especially on etsy but on a
00:06:59 00:07:02 number of platforms because i would
00:07:01 00:07:04 rather go after a design that's super
00:07:02 00:07:06 popular that has a lot of competition
00:07:04 00:07:08 rather than a design that has no demand
00:07:06 00:07:11 at all but no competition because the
00:07:08 00:07:12 demand and the the competition there it
00:07:11 00:07:14 tells you that there's demand there and
00:07:12 00:07:16 that people are buying that right so i'd
00:07:14 00:07:18 rather compete in a space like that than
00:07:16 00:07:19 a space that has no demand at all so you
00:07:18 00:07:21 know you can still go after these
00:07:19 00:07:23 products i'm not telling you not to
00:07:21 00:07:25 create these designs but ideally you'd
00:07:23 00:07:27 find one with a lot of demand with not
00:07:25 00:07:28 enough supply to match that demand all
00:07:27 00:07:30 right just keep that in mind so this
00:07:28 00:07:32 person if you check all these and i did
00:07:30 00:07:33 obviously before this video a good
00:07:32 00:07:35 number of them this person would be a
00:07:33 00:07:37 great store to mimic and check out
00:07:35 00:07:38 because they have a lot of the top
00:07:37 00:07:41 designs and you can see that they're
00:07:38 00:07:43 doing that same exact strategy so if you
00:07:41 00:07:45 literally search beach not teaching on
00:07:43 00:07:46 etsy's catalog there's a lot of people
00:07:45 00:07:48 creating that design same thing with
00:07:46 00:07:49 this one same thing with this one same
00:07:48 00:07:51 thing with a number of these and that's
00:07:49 00:07:54 how i basically figured out that
00:07:51 00:07:56 one of the good designs here is my
00:07:54 00:07:58 second or friday my second favorite f
00:07:56 00:08:00 word okay so if you search that in the
00:07:58 00:08:02 actual etsy catalog you can see that
00:08:00 00:08:04 there's some here but not really right
00:08:02 00:08:06 like feminism is my second favorite f
00:08:04 00:08:08 word friday is but there's not a good
00:08:06 00:08:11 number of mugs that say friday my second
00:08:08 00:08:13 favorite f word okay and so there's not
00:08:11 00:08:15 a lot of competition when you actually
00:08:13 00:08:17 search for that on the etsy etsy catalog
00:08:15 00:08:19 and so we can go ahead and create that
00:08:17 00:08:21 now there is going to be competition on
00:08:19 00:08:23 you know that specific saying but you
00:08:21 00:08:25 can niche down with your keywords and
00:08:23 00:08:27 obviously get somebody that's searching
00:08:25 00:08:29 for that specifically on a mug and then
00:08:27 00:08:30 start making sales that way okay again
00:08:29 00:08:32 there's a number of ways to actually
00:08:30 00:08:34 approach this but i'm just trying to
00:08:32 00:08:35 simplify it for you in this tutorial so
00:08:34 00:08:37 we're going to go ahead and we're going
00:08:35 00:08:39 to move forward with this mug design
00:08:37 00:08:41 basically what we're trying to do now is
00:08:39 00:08:43 we found a design that has potential
00:08:41 00:08:45 that has demand but doesn't really seem
00:08:43 00:08:47 to have the supply on etsy to match that
00:08:45 00:08:49 and so but what we can basically do is
00:08:47 00:08:51 create a very very similar mug design to
00:08:49 00:08:52 this upload it through printful who's
00:08:51 00:08:54 going to do all the work for us and
00:08:52 00:08:56 obviously monitor the stok shipped to
00:08:54 00:08:58 our customer insert the tracking number
00:08:56 00:09:00 on in the back end of our etsy store you
00:08:58 00:09:01 know for us so once we create the design
00:09:00 00:09:03 it's pretty much hands off we don't
00:09:01 00:09:04 really need to worry about it so you can
00:09:03 00:09:07 either use photoshop that works very
00:09:04 00:09:08 very well or you can use canva which is
00:09:07 00:09:11 a free one that i actually pulled up
00:09:08 00:09:13 here they have the entire mug like like
00:09:11 00:09:15 template that you can just pull up it's
00:09:13 00:09:16 super easy to use and then all you
00:09:15 00:09:18 really want to do is you just mimic the
00:09:16 00:09:20 design right like you can you don't want
00:09:18 00:09:21 to copy it 100
00:09:20 00:09:24 but what you basically want to do is you
00:09:21 00:09:25 want to take the the main elements of
00:09:24 00:09:27 this and then create your own kind of
00:09:25 00:09:30 spin-off with like a little bit of flare
00:09:27 00:09:31 and and your own personality in that
00:09:30 00:09:32 okay so maybe you add something maybe
00:09:31 00:09:34 you slightly change something there
00:09:32 00:09:36 you're going after friday period my
00:09:34 00:09:38 second favorite f word that's going to
00:09:36 00:09:40 be very very easy to recreate so all we
00:09:38 00:09:42 really need to do here
00:09:40 00:09:45 is we're going to find some cursive
00:09:42 00:09:47 writing move that sideways
00:09:45 00:09:48 make it a little bit bigger
00:09:47 00:09:50 so we're going to go friday
00:09:48 00:09:52 and you can see right here like when you
00:09:50 00:09:54 drag they're literally telling you where
00:09:52 00:09:55 the actual box and print kind of the
00:09:54 00:09:57 middle of the mug is so you kind of want
00:09:55 00:09:59 to stay within that we'll throw the
00:09:57 00:10:01 little heart in there as well
00:09:59 00:10:03 and now we're going to use this template
00:10:01 00:10:05 didn't mean do that and then we're
00:10:03 00:10:08 simply going to add some text here
00:10:05 00:10:27 my second
00:10:29 00:10:34 and so in about a minute and a half
00:10:31 00:10:36 really easily it took me to create and
00:10:34 00:10:38 kind of replicate this design all i
00:10:36 00:10:41 really did was i switched the text
00:10:38 00:10:42 around slightly very very slightly added
00:10:41 00:10:44 the little heart and added the little
00:10:42 00:10:46 wine symbol for friday
00:10:44 00:10:48 and you can see that this design right
00:10:46 00:10:50 here is very very similar to this one i
00:10:48 00:10:51 think it's slightly improved again i
00:10:50 00:10:53 didn't take that much time for the sake
00:10:51 00:10:54 of showing you in this tutorial i just
00:10:53 00:10:56 want to show you like the overall
00:10:54 00:10:58 strategy behind this and then leave you
00:10:56 00:11:00 to creatively design whatever you want
00:10:58 00:11:02 to do but the key element here is we're
00:11:00 00:11:04 not just creating random designs you can
00:11:02 00:11:06 go that route although most of the time
00:11:04 00:11:07 in my experience it doesn't really work
00:11:06 00:11:09 like if you have an idea and you're like
00:11:07 00:11:11 wow that'd be really cool if you're
00:11:09 00:11:12 first to market like yes you're taking
00:11:11 00:11:14 shots in the dark and it potentially
00:11:12 00:11:16 could blow up but but the majority of
00:11:14 00:11:17 the time it's never going to hit because
00:11:16 00:11:19 there's not going to be that demand
00:11:17 00:11:21 there so in my experience you want to go
00:11:19 00:11:23 after proven things like this and then
00:11:21 00:11:24 replicate it and pull your own spin on
00:11:23 00:11:26 it all right so now that we have the
00:11:24 00:11:28 design we're going to keep this listing
00:11:26 00:11:30 up because we want to use their seo and
00:11:28 00:11:32 a lot of the keywords in their listing
00:11:30 00:11:34 because clearly this listing is super
00:11:32 00:11:36 popular and something's working for them
00:11:34 00:11:38 okay now that we have the design we
00:11:36 00:11:39 simply just want to download the design
00:11:38 00:11:42 right so we're going to download the
00:11:39 00:11:43 design as a png now that we have the
00:11:42 00:11:45 design we're going to take it into
00:11:43 00:11:47 printful and so in printful what you
00:11:45 00:11:49 want to do is you want to go to your
00:11:47 00:11:50 store and then add a new product once
00:11:49 00:11:52 you get there you'll see all these
00:11:50 00:11:54 designs down the side right like you can
00:11:52 00:11:55 create water bottles you can create
00:11:54 00:11:57 t-shirts you can you know pretty much
00:11:55 00:11:59 put your logo or your design on a number
00:11:57 00:12:02 of different products obviously we're
00:11:59 00:12:04 going after a mug here so you want to
00:12:02 00:12:06 find a mug you can even search for just
00:12:04 00:12:08 mug and then right here you have three
00:12:06 00:12:09 different options for mugs we'll go with
00:12:08 00:12:11 this one it's the cheapest we're going
00:12:09 00:12:14 to drag our design or just upload your
00:12:11 00:12:16 design in there so upload a new file and
00:12:14 00:12:18 bam there you go now you want it to kind
00:12:16 00:12:19 of stretch as much as possible because
00:12:18 00:12:22 you want that design
00:12:19 00:12:24 to be you know really fill up the
00:12:22 00:12:25 entirety of the mug that you can kind of
00:12:24 00:12:27 see now if you want to be more in the
00:12:25 00:12:30 middle you can drag it down a little bit
00:12:27 00:12:32 i would say if you're you know worried
00:12:30 00:12:34 about it like overlapping a little bit
00:12:32 00:12:36 use caution there ideally with t-shirts
00:12:34 00:12:38 and especially mugs as well you want the
00:12:36 00:12:40 design to fill out as much of it as
00:12:38 00:12:42 potentially possible but if you're
00:12:40 00:12:43 worried about it being overlapped
00:12:42 00:12:45 slightly then go on the safer side go a
00:12:43 00:12:47 little bit smaller it's still going to
00:12:45 00:12:49 look half decent now you can use
00:12:47 00:12:50 lifestyle mock-ups like this where you
00:12:49 00:12:53 can kind of see the person holding the
00:12:50 00:12:55 mug or you can kind of use like mock-ups
00:12:53 00:12:57 for you know a specific holiday season
00:12:55 00:12:58 for example if this was like you know
00:12:57 00:13:00 for christmas for example well then you
00:12:58 00:13:02 could use a holiday mock-up for
00:13:00 00:13:04 christmas or valentine's day or father's
00:13:02 00:13:06 day or whatever um in my experience and
00:13:04 00:13:08 this is just anecdotally like mock-ups
00:13:06 00:13:09 for t-shirts work very very well because
00:13:08 00:13:11 people want to see the t-shirt on
00:13:09 00:13:14 somebody and kind of imagine what it
00:13:11 00:13:16 looks like on them as well for mugs i
00:13:14 00:13:18 found more i found more success with
00:13:16 00:13:20 mugs just with the white background now
00:13:18 00:13:22 that just me might be an aberration but
00:13:20 00:13:24 for me and my specific experience mugs
00:13:22 00:13:25 work better with the white background in
00:13:24 00:13:27 my experience but again if you're doing
00:13:25 00:13:28 t-shirts then it is slightly different
00:13:27 00:13:30 because most people want to envision
00:13:28 00:13:31 themselves in the t-shirt before buying
00:13:30 00:13:33 and now you're basically just going to
00:13:31 00:13:35 put the seo in there right so you can
00:13:33 00:13:38 use your own kind of seo you don't want
00:13:35 00:13:39 to copy someone's listing word for word
00:13:38 00:13:42 but you do want to use the seo that was
00:13:39 00:13:44 successful for them and kind of mimic it
00:13:42 00:13:47 off that same thing right so friday my
00:13:44 00:13:48 second favorite f word color accent mug
00:13:47 00:13:50 metallic glitter mug so we're gonna say
00:13:48 00:13:52 and this is like i would spend a little
00:13:50 00:13:53 bit more time here kind of maybe even
00:13:52 00:13:55 researching a little bit of seo for this
00:13:53 00:13:58 looking at a number of listings that all
00:13:55 00:14:00 have this actual you know design in it
00:13:58 00:14:02 and have ranked well on the platform if
00:14:00 00:14:03 there's a couple of those pick a bunch
00:14:02 00:14:04 of the best keywords out of those but i
00:14:03 00:14:05 don't want to waste your time in this
00:14:04 00:14:07 tutorial i want it to be quick but
00:14:05 00:14:09 that's the best approach and then kind
00:14:07 00:14:11 of put your own spin on it but again use
00:14:09 00:14:13 the majority of their seo because that's
00:14:11 00:14:14 what works to rank on the platform now
00:14:13 00:14:16 you want to keep the majority of this
00:14:14 00:14:17 stuff in here i always delete the last
00:14:16 00:14:19 one that says it was made in china you
00:14:17 00:14:21 also want to make sure that like all
00:14:19 00:14:23 this specific stuff is you know crucial
00:14:21 00:14:26 to the actual listing if it's not take
00:14:23 00:14:27 it out now right here i keep that
00:14:26 00:14:29 because this will you know whether it's
00:14:27 00:14:31 dishwasher safe and they always kind of
00:14:29 00:14:32 have a little caption there but again
00:14:31 00:14:34 you want to go back to the original
00:14:32 00:14:36 listing and figure out okay is there
00:14:34 00:14:38 anything in the actual description here
00:14:36 00:14:39 that you can take that fits your like be
00:14:38 00:14:41 careful because you want to make sure it
00:14:39 00:14:43 fits your design and your specific
00:14:41 00:14:45 manufacturer's mug or your specific
00:14:43 00:14:47 manufacturer's t-shirt if it's a t-shirt
00:14:45 00:14:49 in there right so for example like if
00:14:47 00:14:51 they say it's an accent or it's like 12
00:14:49 00:14:53 ounces or whatever it is like they might
00:14:51 00:14:54 be using a different supplier than you
00:14:53 00:14:55 and so their item specs might be
00:14:54 00:14:57 slightly different and you want to make
00:14:55 00:14:59 sure that that also applies to you but
00:14:57 00:15:01 if they have anything in here about the
00:14:59 00:15:04 specific design of the mug again look at
00:15:01 00:15:06 their seo figure out what works for you
00:15:04 00:15:08 and what works for them and then copy it
00:15:06 00:15:10 based on that again for the sake of not
00:15:08 00:15:12 wasting your time in this tutorial i'm
00:15:10 00:15:14 not going to do that but best practike
00:15:12 00:15:16 would be for you to do that okay again
00:15:14 00:15:18 you don't want to look off theirs use
00:15:16 00:15:19 theirs as a template but use a couple of
00:15:18 00:15:20 other ones because those other ones have
00:15:19 00:15:22 ranked on the platform and you can
00:15:20 00:15:24 combine the best elements of every
00:15:22 00:15:27 single one put them into your listing
00:15:24 00:15:28 and ideally create a better listing now
00:15:27 00:15:30 you're also going to want to create tags
00:15:28 00:15:33 here so put some tags in there that you
00:15:30 00:15:35 think fit it again same thing applies
00:15:33 00:15:36 like look at the other listings come up
00:15:35 00:15:39 with good keywords and then put them in
00:15:36 00:15:40 there on the tags okay now's the fun
00:15:39 00:15:42 part where you actually figure out what
00:15:40 00:15:44 you can make on this and what to set
00:15:42 00:15:45 your price at now
00:15:44 00:15:47 you want to look at the other people in
00:15:45 00:15:49 the actual you know in the space and
00:15:47 00:15:51 figure out what their prices are and
00:15:49 00:15:53 pretty much base your price off theirs
00:15:51 00:15:54 kind of in the median now if you are
00:15:53 00:15:56 brand new and chances are if you're
00:15:54 00:15:58 watching this tutorial you're brand new
00:15:56 00:16:00 you want to go on the lower side even if
00:15:58 00:16:03 you're barely making any profit the
00:16:00 00:16:04 lower side of those prices because your
00:16:03 00:16:06 your beginning goal when you're actually
00:16:04 00:16:08 starting isn't to make a lot of money
00:16:06 00:16:10 it's to rank your listing it's it's to
00:16:08 00:16:12 rank your store and get reviews okay
00:16:10 00:16:14 once this listing ranks and you'll
00:16:12 00:16:15 you'll rank it better by creating a
00:16:14 00:16:17 lower price
00:16:15 00:16:19 once it's ranked you can raise the price
00:16:17 00:16:20 and it will still be ranked on the
00:16:19 00:16:22 platform and you'll be ranked higher
00:16:20 00:16:24 than other people that are that are even
00:16:22 00:16:26 lower with their prices right but to get
00:16:24 00:16:28 this ranked in the beginning you want to
00:16:26 00:16:29 keep your price relatively low so that
00:16:28 00:16:31 you're getting sales so it builds up the
00:16:29 00:16:33 search results and it moves up the pages
00:16:31 00:16:35 on those search results once you do get
00:16:33 00:16:36 sales raise your price that's the the
00:16:35 00:16:38 general strategy that's worse worked
00:16:36 00:16:40 best for me and what i've seen kind of
00:16:38 00:16:41 recommended across the board i think
00:16:40 00:16:43 it's smart it works pretty much on every
00:16:41 00:16:45 platform but especially here when you're
00:16:43 00:16:47 doing print on demand mugs and t-shirts
00:16:45 00:16:48 on etsy so we're gonna put both designs
00:16:47 00:16:50 here it's gonna tell you what your
00:16:48 00:16:52 printful cost is here
00:16:50 00:16:53 it's when you set the price to it's also
00:16:52 00:16:56 going to calculate on the right over
00:16:53 00:16:58 here what your actual profit margin is
00:16:56 00:17:00 expected to be after the cost of the
00:16:58 00:17:02 actual product after the uh the fee from
00:17:00 00:17:04 printful and after the shipping fee okay
00:17:02 00:17:05 so you should be able to see that on the
00:17:04 00:17:08 right and there you have it now it's
00:17:05 00:17:09 good to go as soon as it's done all you
00:17:08 00:17:12 really need to do is go back into your
00:17:09 00:17:14 etsy store make that listing active set
00:17:12 00:17:16 your shipping template and then you're
00:17:14 00:17:18 good to go printful will handle all the
00:17:16 00:17:20 rest of it right so they're going to
00:17:18 00:17:22 obviously keep the mug in stok like the
00:17:20 00:17:24 blank mug once you get an order they're
00:17:22 00:17:25 going to print that that design on the
00:17:24 00:17:28 mug they're then going to grab the
00:17:25 00:17:29 actual address from the order because
00:17:28 00:17:31 they're connected to the back end of
00:17:29 00:17:33 your actual etsy store
00:17:31 00:17:34 ship the mug with the printed design to
00:17:33 00:17:36 that customer and then input the
00:17:34 00:17:38 tracking number as well in your etsy
00:17:36 00:17:40 store so you don't need to do anything
00:17:38 00:17:42 unless you get a message about it or
00:17:40 00:17:44 something like that right so this is one
00:17:42 00:17:46 of the easiest ways to get started with
00:17:44 00:17:48 drop shipping online it's also within
00:17:46 00:17:50 the terms of service on etsy so you can
00:17:48 00:17:51 build like a long-term sustainable
00:17:50 00:17:53 business doing this you don't need to
00:17:51 00:17:56 store any inventory you don't need any
00:17:53 00:17:57 upfront money obviously minus the 20
00:17:56 00:17:59 cents that it takes you to create the
00:17:57 00:18:01 etsy listing and if you don't have 20
00:17:59 00:18:02 cents per listing to get started like
00:18:01 00:18:04 chances are you shouldn't be starting a
00:18:02 00:18:05 business level in an online drop
00:18:04 00:18:07 shipping business where you need to
00:18:05 00:18:09 spend money to make money but the best
00:18:07 00:18:11 part about drop shipping is like again
00:18:09 00:18:13 you don't need the inventory but you
