00:00:05 00:00:09 up 23
00:00:06 00:00:10 of the audience here so what's up people
00:00:09 00:00:13 that's better also
00:00:10 00:00:15 over 70 of you guys that are watching my
00:00:13 00:00:17 videos are not subscribed so hit
00:00:15 00:00:18 that red button that says subscribe hit

00:00:20 00:00:23 the print on demand videos that i upload
00:00:22 00:00:25 every single week
00:00:23 00:00:26 and today we're going to be doing
00:00:25 00:00:28 something a little bit different i'm
00:00:26 00:00:30 going to tell you
00:00:28 00:00:31 the reasons why you should not use
00:00:30 00:00:33 shopify for
00:00:31 00:00:34 your print-on-demand business and i know
00:00:33 00:00:36 what some of you guys
00:00:34 00:00:38 are thinking you're gonna say joe like
00:00:36 00:00:41 you made a video last week where
00:00:38 00:00:42 all you toked about was why shopify was
00:00:41 00:00:44 the best place to start a
00:00:42 00:00:45 print-on-demand business
00:00:44 00:00:47 if you haven't checked that video out
00:00:45 00:00:49 the link i will put it down
00:00:47 00:00:50 in the description where i made my case
00:00:49 00:00:53 for why i think
00:00:50 00:00:54 shopify is the best place for anybody to
00:00:53 00:00:55 start
00:00:54 00:00:57 a print-on-demand business it's an
00:00:55 00:00:59 opinion that i still have
00:00:57 00:01:01 but i think the conversation is
00:00:59 00:01:02 interesting so in this video today we're
00:01:01 00:01:04 going to
00:01:02 00:01:05 look at some of the reasons why shopify
00:01:04 00:01:08 might not be
00:01:05 00:01:09 a good fit for you and my hope is that
00:01:08 00:01:11 by breaking down
00:01:09 00:01:12 some of these reasons about why you
00:01:11 00:01:14 shouldn't use shopify
00:01:12 00:01:15 is that some of you will come to the
00:01:14 00:01:18 realization
00:01:15 00:01:19 that maybe shopify is the best place and
00:01:18 00:01:21 maybe some of these reasons why you
00:01:19 00:01:23 shouldn't use shopify
00:01:21 00:01:24 actually aren't that big of a deal and
00:01:23 00:01:25 like i said i do think some of these
00:01:24 00:01:27 reasons
00:01:25 00:01:30 have a lot of merit i think some of
00:01:27 00:01:32 these reasons are genuine reasons why
00:01:30 00:01:34 shopify might not be a good fit for you
00:01:32 00:01:35 at the end of this video today i'll sort
00:01:34 00:01:38 of compare
00:01:35 00:01:40 the overall strategies between using a
00:01:38 00:01:43 site like red redbubble or amazon merch
00:01:40 00:01:44 compared to opening up a shopify store
00:01:43 00:01:46 to sell
00:01:44 00:01:47 print-on-demand products anyway if you
00:01:46 00:01:49 guys are new
00:01:47 00:01:51 to my channel uh what's up joe robert
00:01:49 00:01:51 here i make a bunch of print on demand
00:01:51 00:01:53 content
00:01:51 00:01:55 like this i also have a free
00:01:53 00:01:56 print-on-demand course down in the
00:01:55 00:01:57 description
00:01:56 00:02:00 so if you guys want some step-by-step
00:01:57 00:02:00 training to open your store on shopify
00:02:00 00:02:03 you can check that out
00:02:00 00:02:04 i also have a print on demand facebook
00:02:03 00:02:07 group with about 20 000 members
00:02:04 00:02:08 and i'd love to get to know you a little
00:02:07 00:02:09 bit more
00:02:08 00:02:11 uh so check out the group the link is
00:02:09 00:02:12 down in the description today we're
00:02:11 00:02:14 going to be looking at some of the
00:02:12 00:02:16 comments that were made
00:02:14 00:02:18 on the video that i uploaded last week
00:02:16 00:02:20 what about customer support does red
00:02:18 00:02:24 bubble and teespring handle that for you
00:02:20 00:02:26 yes if you open a store on redbubble
00:02:24 00:02:28 or if you're selling on teespring or
00:02:26 00:02:29 even amazon they will handle all of your
00:02:28 00:02:31 customer support
00:02:29 00:02:32 this means that you don't have to spend
00:02:31 00:02:34 any time dealing with those pesky
00:02:32 00:02:36 customers or answering
00:02:34 00:02:38 silly questions about your products or
00:02:36 00:02:40 anything like that what i like about
00:02:38 00:02:42 redbubble and merch by amazon is that
00:02:40 00:02:44 they handle printing and shipping this
00:02:42 00:02:45 also means that if somebody buys from
00:02:44 00:02:47 you and they want to make a return
00:02:45 00:02:49 that you don't have to deal with them at
00:02:47 00:02:51 all they will just reach out to
00:02:49 00:02:52 the customer support at the platform
00:02:51 00:02:53 that you are selling on and they will
00:02:52 00:02:55 handle the return
00:02:53 00:02:57 for you so as a beginner you don't have
00:02:55 00:03:00 to do any customer service at all
00:02:57 00:03:00 so i want to ask is this a good thing
00:03:00 00:03:03 and
00:03:00 00:03:05 is this something that should actually
00:03:03 00:03:05 dissuade you from starting a store on
00:03:05 00:03:07 shopify
00:03:05 00:03:10 if you're someone who just wants to
00:03:07 00:03:11 upload a bunch of random designs and
00:03:10 00:03:13 have someone else handle your customer
00:03:11 00:03:15 service then i guess
00:03:13 00:03:17 that option would probably be the best
00:03:15 00:03:19 fit for you but if you're interested
00:03:17 00:03:21 in building a brand right you're
00:03:19 00:03:22 probably going to have to tok to your
00:03:21 00:03:23 customers
00:03:22 00:03:25 at some point right you're probably
00:03:23 00:03:27 interested in eventually setting up
00:03:25 00:03:29 email marketing
00:03:27 00:03:31 or growing a community on instagram
00:03:29 00:03:32 where you are an active part
00:03:31 00:03:34 of your brand and if you're doing
00:03:32 00:03:36 something like redbubble or merch by
00:03:34 00:03:38 amazon or teespring
00:03:36 00:03:40 you're just losing that ability to
00:03:38 00:03:41 actually connect with your customers
00:03:40 00:03:42 you're actually not
00:03:41 00:03:44 building your brand you're actually
00:03:42 00:03:46 building teesprings brand all you're
00:03:44 00:03:49 doing is uploading your own products
00:03:46 00:03:50 to those platforms and then letting them
00:03:49 00:03:51 handle everything
00:03:50 00:03:53 and then in return you make just a
00:03:51 00:03:54 little bit of profit i have tried
00:03:53 00:03:56 facebook ads
00:03:54 00:03:58 and never got any sales you have to know
00:03:56 00:04:00 how to do facebook ads and targeting
00:03:58 00:04:02 and plus you need to have a sizeable
00:04:00 00:04:04 budget this person
00:04:02 00:04:06 left this comment in reference to what
00:04:04 00:04:07 i'm assuming to be the potential organic
00:04:06 00:04:09 traffic
00:04:07 00:04:12 that you're going to get if you sell on
00:04:09 00:04:14 amazon or if you sell on redbubble or
00:04:12 00:04:14 teespring when you are selling on these
00:04:14 00:04:17 platforms you
00:04:14 00:04:18 do get organic traffic you do but the
00:04:17 00:04:22 question is
00:04:18 00:04:22 how much right in order to actually make
00:04:22 00:04:24 a
00:04:22 00:04:27 massive amount of money you're gonna
00:04:24 00:04:27 need either a ton of products or you're
00:04:27 00:04:30 gonna need
00:04:27 00:04:31 hundreds of visitors daily on your
00:04:30 00:04:33 product let's say that you have a
00:04:31 00:04:34 product and it converts at five percent
00:04:33 00:04:36 that means that
00:04:34 00:04:37 five percent of the people that view it
00:04:36 00:04:39 actually buy it that means that if you
00:04:37 00:04:41 want to make five sales per day
00:04:39 00:04:42 you're gonna have to have 100 visitors
00:04:41 00:04:45 and maybe he's right maybe
00:04:42 00:04:47 you can get hundreds of visitors per day
00:04:45 00:04:49 on your product so i decided to google
00:04:47 00:04:52 something i simply went on google
00:04:49 00:04:53 and i typed in teespring organic traffic
00:04:52 00:04:56 and the results that i got
00:04:53 00:04:58 was someone saying that teespring is not
00:04:56 00:04:59 a actual great source for organic
00:04:58 00:05:01 traffic and honestly
00:04:59 00:05:02 i think when it comes down to it in
00:05:01 00:05:03 order to be successful and this is what
00:05:02 00:05:05 i'm going to break down
00:05:03 00:05:08 at the end of the video if you are
00:05:05 00:05:10 relying solely on organic traffic
00:05:08 00:05:11 through some of these platforms
00:05:10 00:05:13 the only way that you're truly going to
00:05:11 00:05:16 be able to take advantage of that
00:05:13 00:05:17 is if you have literally hundreds of
00:05:16 00:05:19 products uploaded
00:05:17 00:05:21 to those platforms if that is your goal
00:05:19 00:05:22 if you are a designer and you can crank
00:05:21 00:05:23 out designs like that then by all means
00:05:22 00:05:25 start one of these
00:05:23 00:05:27 stores on one of these platforms upload
00:05:25 00:05:29 a whole bunch of designs and then just
00:05:27 00:05:30 rely on the organic traffic to make your
00:05:29 00:05:31 sales
00:05:30 00:05:33 i think the bigger point in his comment
00:05:31 00:05:34 here is the fact that he said i tried
00:05:33 00:05:36 facebook ads
00:05:34 00:05:38 and didn't make any sales and i think a
00:05:36 00:05:40 lot of people say stuff like this that
00:05:38 00:05:42 they tried something and it didn't work
00:05:40 00:05:44 and therefore the whole strategy
00:05:42 00:05:46 should never be used you could say the
00:05:44 00:05:46 same thing for weight loss i tried to
00:05:46 00:05:49 lose weight
00:05:46 00:05:51 and it didn't work or i tried to invest
00:05:49 00:05:53 in stoks and it didn't work
00:05:51 00:05:54 or i tried to grow vegetables and it
00:05:53 00:05:56 didn't work if you are
00:05:54 00:05:58 simply just throwing seeds in the ground
00:05:56 00:05:59 in a random spot
00:05:58 00:06:01 and in that soil there's a whole bunch
00:05:59 00:06:03 of rocks and bugs and maybe
00:06:01 00:06:05 every time something grows a little
00:06:03 00:06:06 animal comes by and eats it you're not
00:06:05 00:06:07 going to get
00:06:06 00:06:09 the results that you want the same is
00:06:07 00:06:11 true with facebook ads you should not
00:06:09 00:06:13 view your facebook ad account like a
00:06:11 00:06:15 slot machine where you put some money in
00:06:13 00:06:17 pull the lever and hope for the best you
00:06:15 00:06:19 have to remember that this is
00:06:17 00:06:20 actual advertising these are real people
00:06:19 00:06:23 and if what you're showing them
00:06:20 00:06:24 is no good no matter what you do with
00:06:23 00:06:25 your strategy it's not going to work you
00:06:24 00:06:27 have to also make sure that your
00:06:25 00:06:28 targeting is good you have to also make
00:06:27 00:06:30 sure
00:06:28 00:06:32 that the way that you set up your ad is
00:06:30 00:06:33 effective to get people to click it and
00:06:32 00:06:36 it's something that is
00:06:33 00:06:38 in reality not very difficult to do in
00:06:36 00:06:38 fact getting traffic to your store from
00:06:38 00:06:40 a facebook ad
00:06:38 00:06:42 is probably one of the easiest things
00:06:40 00:06:43 that you can do when you're on shopify
00:06:42 00:06:44 the hard part
00:06:43 00:06:47 is actually creating a product that
00:06:44 00:06:47 somebody wants to buy but that's a topic
00:06:47 00:06:49 for
00:06:47 00:06:50 another video this post here is
00:06:49 00:06:52 basically toking about the passive
00:06:50 00:06:54 income that one can make
00:06:52 00:06:56 on redbubble that they cannot make on
00:06:54 00:06:58 shopify and anytime
00:06:56 00:07:00 i see someone say the words passive
00:06:58 00:07:02 income i cringe
00:07:00 00:07:03 just a little bit mainly because i think
00:07:02 00:07:05 when beginners
00:07:03 00:07:06 see that word they envision themselves
00:07:05 00:07:09 sitting on a beach somewhere
00:07:06 00:07:10 on their laptop drinking a fancy drink
00:07:09 00:07:11 or something like that while their bank
00:07:10 00:07:12 account
00:07:11 00:07:14 is just growing and they're not doing
00:07:12 00:07:15 anything to make it happen the truth is
00:07:14 00:07:17 in my opinion
00:07:15 00:07:19 is that true passive income does not
00:07:17 00:07:21 exist anybody that gets to the point
00:07:19 00:07:23 with teespring or amazon
00:07:21 00:07:25 where they are generating a lot of sales
00:07:23 00:07:27 has put in a
00:07:25 00:07:28 ton of work they have uploaded hundreds
00:07:27 00:07:30 of designs they have spent hours
00:07:28 00:07:32 researching things
00:07:30 00:07:33 they have even paid somebody to make the
00:07:32 00:07:35 designs for them they are just at a
00:07:33 00:07:35 point now where the designs are out
00:07:35 00:07:37 there
00:07:35 00:07:39 and they are selling my biggest case
00:07:37 00:07:40 here is that the same effort that would
00:07:39 00:07:42 be required
00:07:40 00:07:44 in order to make that happen on one of
00:07:42 00:07:45 these platforms if you put that into
00:07:44 00:07:48 learning facebook ads and learning
00:07:45 00:07:50 shopify and mastering organic traffic
00:07:48 00:07:51 from instagram if you put that same
00:07:50 00:07:53 effort into that
00:07:51 00:07:55 you'd probably end up in a better spot
00:07:53 00:07:55 than if you had put the same time and
00:07:55 00:07:58 effort
00:07:55 00:07:59 into teespring in amazon or redbubble my
00:07:58 00:08:01 point being
00:07:59 00:08:03 is that both options whether you're
00:08:01 00:08:05 going on teespring
00:08:03 00:08:06 and redbubble and merch by amazon
00:08:05 00:08:09 compared to shopify
00:08:06 00:08:10 both strategies can work it's just about
00:08:09 00:08:13 the long-term potential
00:08:10 00:08:15 success in my opinion so here's my main
00:08:13 00:08:16 point with these two videos right i made
00:08:15 00:08:17 this video that you're watching right
00:08:16 00:08:18 now
00:08:17 00:08:20 and i made the other one where i was
00:08:18 00:08:22 recommending shopify last week basically
00:08:20 00:08:24 there are two strategies right you can
00:08:22 00:08:25 upload a ton of designs to one of these
00:08:24 00:08:27 platforms
00:08:25 00:08:29 and then hope for some organic traffic
00:08:27 00:08:31 to come to your store or your page or
00:08:29 00:08:33 whatever they're called listings i think
00:08:31 00:08:35 and get people to buy from you that way
00:08:33 00:08:36 or you could start your own shopify
00:08:35 00:08:38 store
00:08:36 00:08:39 build your brand focus on growing a
00:08:38 00:08:42 community on instagram
00:08:39 00:08:43 and then scale with facebook ads if
00:08:42 00:08:45 you're using teespring amazon or
00:08:43 00:08:47 redbubble there's essentially no startup
00:08:45 00:08:50 cost because those places do not have a
00:08:47 00:08:52 monthly fee where shopify does have a 29
00:08:50 00:08:54 a month minimum to actually use the
00:08:52 00:08:55 platform if you're going to use
00:08:54 00:08:56 redbubble or one of those platforms what
00:08:55 00:08:58 you would do
00:08:56 00:09:00 is immediately start trying to make as
00:08:58 00:09:02 many designs as possible you would then
00:09:00 00:09:04 upload them to all of those platforms
00:09:02 00:09:06 and just hope that you're going to get
00:09:04 00:09:08 organic traffic coming to your listings
00:09:06 00:09:10 with shopify the strategy
00:09:08 00:09:12 would be to pick a passionate niche make
00:09:10 00:09:13 five or so products that you think are
00:09:12 00:09:15 awesome and begin
00:09:13 00:09:16 trying to sell them with facebook ads
00:09:15 00:09:18 simultaneously
00:09:16 00:09:20 you could create an instagram account
00:09:18 00:09:22 and begin posting photos and videos that
00:09:20 00:09:24 people in your niche would like
00:09:22 00:09:25 and then over time sprinkle in photos of
00:09:24 00:09:26 some of the products you sell and if you
00:09:25 00:09:28 put the link
00:09:26 00:09:30 in your bio people are going to click it
00:09:28 00:09:31 and come to your store
00:09:30 00:09:33 and fingers crossed they're going to buy
00:09:31 00:09:35 from you of course this is a
00:09:33 00:09:37 super simplified breakdown and really
00:09:35 00:09:39 this just comes from me
00:09:37 00:09:41 assessing the print-on-demand community
00:09:39 00:09:42 at large and just the amount of
00:09:41 00:09:44 successful sellers
00:09:42 00:09:46 that i see on redbubble merch by amazon
00:09:44 00:09:48 teespring compared to those
00:09:46 00:09:50 that i have seen that have been able to
00:09:48 00:09:52 create profitable brands on shopify
00:09:50 00:09:54 is vastly different honestly the only
00:09:52 00:09:54 people that i see making any sort of
00:09:54 00:09:56 money
00:09:54 00:09:58 on redbubble or merch by amazon are
00:09:56 00:10:00 those that are actually
00:09:58 00:10:02 making youtube videos or teaching people
00:10:00 00:10:04 how to do it i don't see
00:10:02 00:10:05 many beginners actually starting
00:10:04 00:10:07 redbubble or merch by amazon
00:10:05 00:10:09 or teespring that are making great money
00:10:07 00:10:11 in contrast i see
00:10:09 00:10:12 a lot of people that are starting a
00:10:11 00:10:14 shopify print on demand store
00:10:12 00:10:16 and they're turning it into something
00:10:14 00:10:18 that can actually provide them
00:10:16 00:10:20 with quote-unquote passive income when
00:10:18 00:10:22 it comes down to it if you get to the
00:10:20 00:10:24 point where you have hundreds of designs
00:10:22 00:10:25 on redbubble or teespring or amazon and
00:10:24 00:10:27 they are selling
00:10:25 00:10:29 i think a better scenario for you would
00:10:27 00:10:31 be if you invested the time
00:10:29 00:10:32 into learning how to do facebook ads
00:10:31 00:10:33 building your shopify print on demand
00:10:32 00:10:35 store
00:10:33 00:10:37 and having your brand on instagram i
00:10:35 00:10:37 think that would be a better long-term
00:10:37 00:10:39 goal
00:10:37 00:10:41 it really just comes down to how much
00:10:39 00:10:43 effort you want to put into this and
00:10:41 00:10:45 what skills you are willing to master
00:10:43 00:10:47 so let me know down in the comments what
00:10:45 00:10:50 you guys think if you agree
00:10:47 00:10:50 or if you hate me okay bye
