00:01:00 00:01:04 Drive a Toyota Corolla I have been able
00:01:03 00:01:07 to use my Shopify print-on-demand

00:01:07 00:01:10 family
00:01:08 00:01:13 like I said this was a huge year though
00:01:10 00:01:15 I have done a ton of business online -
00:01:13 00:01:17 some record breaking numbers for myself
00:01:15 00:01:19 I even built and sold a brand on the
00:01:17 00:01:21 Shopify exchange for a five figure
00:01:19 00:01:23 profit on top of that my private
00:01:21 00:01:26 mentorship group is continuing to grow
00:01:23 00:01:28 and students this year in 2019 have
00:01:26 00:01:35 achieved almost 1 million dollars in

00:02:38 00:02:42 video series where I break down the 25
00:02:40 00:02:45 things that I learned about Shopify
00:02:42 00:02:47 print-on-demand in 2019 each video will
00:02:45 00:02:49 also have a blog artikle on peyote
00:02:47 00:02:51 ninjas calm I'll put the link down in
00:02:49 00:02:52 the description to this videos artikle
00:02:51 00:02:54 if you guys want to check it out
00:02:52 00:02:56 basically I go into a little bit more
00:02:54 00:02:57 detail than I am inside of this video
00:02:56 00:02:58 and like I said if you want to check
00:02:57 00:03:00 that out the link is down in the
00:02:58 00:03:03 description print-on-demand still works
00:03:00 00:03:04 better than ever so like I said earlier
00:03:03 00:03:06 guys I've had a ton of success this year
00:03:04 00:03:08 and so have my students a lot of times
00:03:06 00:03:10 people are saying that print-on-demand
00:03:08 00:03:11 is not a good business model they're
00:03:10 00:03:12 saying things like print-on-demand is
00:03:11 00:03:13 dead or they're saying that you
00:03:12 00:03:15 shouldn't do it they're saying that you
00:03:13 00:03:17 should stik with something like drop
00:03:15 00:03:19 shipping I think that that is the worst
00:03:17 00:03:20 thing that you could ever do because
00:03:19 00:03:22 print-on-demand is still working it's
00:03:20 00:03:24 working better than ever people are
00:03:22 00:03:26 still making sales every single day and
00:03:24 00:03:27 honestly I think that print-on-demand is
00:03:26 00:03:30 the future I always say this the reason
00:03:27 00:03:32 why is because you can create your own
00:03:30 00:03:35 brand you can literally become an
00:03:32 00:03:37 authority in your niche and create an
00:03:35 00:03:39 entire store around it so I think it's a
00:03:37 00:03:40 huge opportunity I think 2020 is going
00:03:39 00:03:42 to continue to bring even more
00:03:40 00:03:45 opportunity and if you were doubting
00:03:42 00:03:46 print-on-demand for a second in 2019 you
00:03:45 00:03:49 are sadly mistaken because
00:03:46 00:03:51 print-on-demand is here to stay and 2019
00:03:49 00:03:53 is proof of that
00:03:51 00:03:57 number two print-on-demand apps are not
00:03:53 00:03:59 created equal this q4 was very rough for
00:03:57 00:04:00 a lot of different print-on-demand apps
00:03:59 00:04:02 if you guys are a part of a bunch of
00:04:00 00:04:03 different groups I'm not going to call
00:04:02 00:04:06 one of them out but there is a app
00:04:03 00:04:08 there's actually a few apps that have
00:04:06 00:04:10 really struggled this q4 basically what
00:04:08 00:04:12 is happening is people are fulfilling
00:04:10 00:04:14 orders with these apps and it's just
00:04:12 00:04:16 taking way too long for the products to
00:04:14 00:04:17 actually get to the customers that is no
00:04:16 00:04:19 way to run a
00:04:17 00:04:20 business a lot of these apps are based
00:04:19 00:04:23 overseas outside of the United States
00:04:20 00:04:24 and they're just taking way too long
00:04:23 00:04:27 in some cases I've seen people take up
00:04:24 00:04:29 to six weeks to receive their customer's
00:04:27 00:04:31 item that is way too long like I said
00:04:29 00:04:32 that is no way to run a business and
00:04:31 00:04:35 that is why just about a few months ago
00:04:32 00:04:38 I aligned p OD ninjas with the
00:04:35 00:04:41 print-on-demand app printe 555 has given
00:04:38 00:04:43 all of my audience a special coupon code
00:04:41 00:04:45 and I get nothing from this this is not
00:04:43 00:04:47 an affiliate code or anything like that
00:04:45 00:04:49 but it is a special code where you guys
00:04:47 00:04:51 can get a free month of print to five
00:04:49 00:04:54 premium basically what printer fie
00:04:51 00:04:56 premium is is it's an account upgrade
00:04:54 00:04:58 that allows you to save 20% on every
00:04:56 00:05:00 single order that you fulfill with
00:04:58 00:05:03 printf I that is basically going to make
00:05:00 00:05:05 printf I the cheapest option out there
00:05:03 00:05:07 for you to fulfill all of your products
00:05:05 00:05:09 on top of that most of their suppliers
00:05:07 00:05:11 are based right here in the United
00:05:09 00:05:13 States so if you're selling to people in
00:05:11 00:05:14 the USA you're going to be in luck
00:05:13 00:05:15 because a lot of those products are
00:05:14 00:05:17 going to be fulfilled right here and
00:05:15 00:05:19 shipping times are going to be super
00:05:17 00:05:22 fast it is super easy to apply the Print
00:05:19 00:05:24 fi premium code just simply go to your
00:05:22 00:05:26 payments section of the printf I a p--
00:05:24 00:05:29 type in code ninja 50 and it will give
00:05:26 00:05:31 you the free printf I premium account or
00:05:29 00:05:33 you can save 20% on all of your products
00:05:31 00:05:34 the third thing that I learned or that I
00:05:33 00:05:36 kind of relearn because this is
00:05:34 00:05:39 something that I always sort of knew is
00:05:36 00:05:40 that branding matters it actually
00:05:39 00:05:42 matters a whole lot and if you guys are
00:05:40 00:05:44 wondering what the heck I mean by
00:05:42 00:05:46 branding basically when I say the word
00:05:44 00:05:48 branding what I'm saying is that your
00:05:46 00:05:51 customers gut feeling when they arrive
00:05:48 00:05:52 on your store so put it this way right
00:05:51 00:05:54 someone jumps onto your store they're
00:05:52 00:05:56 browsing around through they're gonna
00:05:54 00:05:58 feel like hey this is a great credible
00:05:56 00:06:00 business or actually this is kind of
00:05:58 00:06:01 just a generic shop and I don't really
00:06:00 00:06:03 trust them and I'm not gonna buy from
00:06:01 00:06:05 them right branding is a lot to do with
00:06:03 00:06:06 your logo your color scheme the
00:06:05 00:06:08 different product images that you have
00:06:06 00:06:10 on your store I have several videos on
00:06:08 00:06:12 my channel where I tok about this in
00:06:10 00:06:15 depth but I have definitely learned in
00:06:12 00:06:17 2019 that branding is super key to being
00:06:15 00:06:19 successful and if you do not have clear
00:06:17 00:06:21 branding on your store you are going to
00:06:19 00:06:23 struggle here's an example right this is
00:06:21 00:06:25 someone that is inside of my
00:06:23 00:06:26 print-on-demand mentorship group when
00:06:25 00:06:28 they joined the group they were just
00:06:26 00:06:30 making a few sales here and there really
00:06:28 00:06:30 nothing to get super excited about they
00:06:30 00:06:32 were
00:06:30 00:06:34 looking for someone to help them to take
00:06:32 00:06:35 their store from where it was at to
00:06:34 00:06:37 really just being super successful and
00:06:35 00:06:39 that is exactly what ended up happening
00:06:37 00:06:40 I have some screenshots on the screen
00:06:39 00:06:43 right now of different conversations
00:06:40 00:06:44 that I had with this person and after we
00:06:43 00:06:46 went through their store after I gave
00:06:44 00:06:48 them some tips on how they can improve
00:06:46 00:06:49 the branding on their store and also
00:06:48 00:06:51 some other things behind the scenes with
00:06:49 00:06:52 their Facebook ads and different things
00:06:51 00:06:55 about their product you can see that
00:06:52 00:06:58 they had an extraordinary December they
00:06:55 00:07:00 were able to achieve well over $100,000
00:06:58 00:07:02 in just one month guys and this really
00:07:00 00:07:04 comes down to having a solid brand
00:07:02 00:07:05 strategy obviously and then a really
00:07:04 00:07:08 great product right and then once you've
00:07:05 00:07:10 learn how to properly launch a Facebook
00:07:08 00:07:11 ad the rest is easy people come to your
00:07:10 00:07:14 store and they just buy from you I know
00:07:11 00:07:15 that sounds like really super simple but
00:07:14 00:07:17 when it comes down to it that's how
00:07:15 00:07:19 simple it is right it's not easy but
00:07:17 00:07:21 it's simple you need to create a great
00:07:19 00:07:24 store with a solid brand identity on it
00:07:21 00:07:25 create a great product and then show it
00:07:24 00:07:27 to the right people with your Facebook
00:07:25 00:07:29 ad and then that is how you make sales
00:07:27 00:07:32 number for picking a profitable product
00:07:29 00:07:33 matters I've said this before right I
00:07:32 00:07:36 have a video on my channel it is the
00:07:33 00:07:37 most popular video on my channel and
00:07:36 00:07:40 it's basically telling people that they
00:07:37 00:07:42 should stop selling t-shirts with print
00:07:40 00:07:43 on demand and the reason for this is
00:07:42 00:07:46 that there is just simply not enough
00:07:43 00:07:48 margin with t-shirts to make any sort of
00:07:46 00:07:50 profit most t-shirts are going to cost
00:07:48 00:07:51 you about $10 each and then you're gonna
00:07:50 00:07:52 have to pay shipping or maybe you're
00:07:51 00:07:54 gonna give free shipping to your
00:07:52 00:07:56 customers and by the time everything is
00:07:54 00:07:58 all said and done and you've spent money
00:07:56 00:08:00 on Facebook ads you're not gonna have
00:07:58 00:08:03 any profit leftover so I truly do not
00:08:00 00:08:06 want any of you guys to start to try to
00:08:03 00:08:08 sell t-shirts in 2020 okay I definitely
00:08:06 00:08:09 think that if you have been doing this
00:08:08 00:08:11 for a while and you know how to create
00:08:09 00:08:12 an awesome product you know how to
00:08:11 00:08:14 launch great ads you have a great brand
00:08:12 00:08:16 you have all the great things on your
00:08:14 00:08:18 store then go for it but if you're just
00:08:16 00:08:20 starting out please don't sell t-shirts
00:08:18 00:08:21 you're going to struggle you're not
00:08:20 00:08:23 going to make a ton of money and you're
00:08:21 00:08:25 going to end up giving up because you're
00:08:23 00:08:26 gonna spend a ton of time you're not
00:08:25 00:08:27 gonna make a great return you're gonna
00:08:26 00:08:29 get discouraged and then you're gonna
00:08:27 00:08:29 say print-on-demand doesn't work and
00:08:29 00:08:32 you're gonna be just like those people
00:08:29 00:08:34 who I called out with the number one
00:08:32 00:08:35 reason that I started this video off
00:08:34 00:08:37 with which was that print on demand
00:08:35 00:08:39 still works because you're selling
00:08:37 00:08:41 t-shirts and there's not enough margin
00:08:39 00:08:43 so stop selling t-shirts move on to a
00:08:41 00:08:45 better product something higher margins
00:08:43 00:08:46 with at least $20 margin or something
00:08:45 00:08:47 like that
00:08:46 00:08:49 and you're going to be much more
00:08:47 00:08:51 successful number five people who aren't
00:08:49 00:08:53 designers shouldn't make their own
00:08:51 00:08:56 designs so this one I hope I don't
00:08:53 00:08:57 offend anybody okay people message me
00:08:56 00:08:59 all day long right people send me
00:08:57 00:09:01 messages on Facebook I have a Facebook
00:08:59 00:09:03 group that has over 10,000 people in it

00:09:03 00:09:08 send me pictures of their products and
00:09:05 00:09:10 most of the time my question is hey did
00:09:08 00:09:11 you make this design and most of the
00:09:10 00:09:13 time they say yes right and then I say
00:09:11 00:09:16 hey and then I say hey like going
00:09:13 00:09:19 forward no offense don't make your own

00:09:35 00:09:39 something that is not great right I'm
00:09:38 00:09:41 really not trying to offend anybody but
00:09:39 00:09:43 you're going to spend a ton of time
00:09:41 00:09:44 learning how to make designs and you're
00:09:43 00:09:46 just not going to make something that's
00:09:44 00:09:48 awesome and you could just spend that
00:09:46 00:09:50 time marketing your store right you
00:09:48 00:09:52 could spend all that time that you would
00:09:50 00:09:54 making designs by putting effort in your
00:09:52 00:09:55 store redoing your Facebook ads or
00:09:54 00:09:57 something like that and then you could
00:09:55 00:09:59 outsource the design work to someone
00:09:57 00:10:00 else and hopefully that will give you a
00:09:59 00:10:02 little bit more time back and you can
00:10:00 00:10:04 actually make some sales when you get a
00:10:02 00:10:06 high-quality design back from a designer
00:10:04 00:10:09 so those are five things guys that I
00:10:06 00:10:12 learned in 2019 remember this is going
