Description:

Print on demand (POD) has become quite a popular term in the modern age. That’s because whether you’re an artist, designer, entrepreneur or just a person bursting with creativity, POD can be a perfect canvas for monetizing your creativity. Print on demand is a way how you can sell your products online without actually having an inventory. Sounds odd right? This is a process where you work with your supplier regarding the production and delivery. In most of the cases, the suppliers are online market places who have created a platform for POD business. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

WHATS THE DEAL WITH POD AND DROPSHIPPING
Theres a lot of confusion going on between
the Print-on-Demand and Dropshipping industries,
which is why I decided to clarify some of the
most common doubts on this matter. The old times
when you needed to hire a professional to build a
website for you are long gone. Nowadays there are
tons of companies that allow you to both have an
online t-shirt shop and take care of inventory
and fulfillment for you. The traditional
selling/shipping method has a huge potential
problem where most entrepreneurs fail lack of
organization. Theres stock to purchase, printing
companies to deal with, packaging dilemmas to go
through, shipping companies to negotiate with and
many more. Theres a whole lot of newbie errors
to make!  Lets go ahead and put
the Print-on-Demand and Dropshipping T-shirt
Businesses side to side and learn which business
model is better for you.

HOW DOES EACH PROCESS WORK
POD vs Dropshipping

Print on Demand Process
  • 1
  • You choose a print on demand website and upload
    your design to a product or several products. No
    monetary investment whatsoever.
  • 2
  • A customer sees your design on a product he/she
    likes and decides to purchase.
  • .
  • 3
  • With the customers money, the Print on Demand
    company then prints your design on the selected
    product.
  • 4
  • They pack it up and ship it to the customer.
  • 5
  • You, as the seller, will receive the accorded
    profit margin and the customer his/her product
    with your design on it.

Dropshipping Process
1 A buyer places an order on the sellers
website which will most likely be powered by
Shopify or Woocommerce.
2 The seller forwards the order details to their
favorite dropshipping company. 
3 The 3rd party retailer ships the order
directly to the customer.

WHAT DO I NEED TO START SELLING
POD Vs Dropshipping
9
For POD
1. You first need t-shirt designs to sell. Once
you have your designs ready, getting started
selling on Print on Demand websites is easy as
pie.   2. As soon as you visit these sites you
will see a big GET STARTED START SELLING
UPLOAD YOUR DESIGN or SELL YOUR ART button
inviting you to become a seller. 3. A few clicks
later you will asked to populate your shop by
uploading your awesome designs and selecting the
products you want to print your designs on.  4.
Now you will be asked for a bank account or a
verified PayPal account to where these companies
can deposit your well earned money.  5. Thats
it! Once you do this you will have an up and
running e-commerce shop with your designs on as
many products as you wish.
10
For Dropshipping
1.First, you need a domain. Go and get yours at
GoDaddy or similar websites. Be sure its
original and catchy. 2. Once you have a domain,
a best practice is to open an online Shopify
store. 3. Both WordPress and Shopify provide
easily customizable templates to jumpstart
your web design/creative process and create a
decent website for showcasing your products to
the world. 4. The website setup process is
pretty straightforward but itll still take some
time since there are quite a few aspects to cover
up before making your site go live. 5. now go
and power-up your shop with the Shopify Product
Sourcing App or  WooCommerce Dropshipping
extensions of your choice. 6. After selecting a
partner, go show your tshirt designs on
mockups in order to start populating your shop
with your awesome designs.

HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I MAKE
POD Vs Dropshipping
12
From POD
Sites with custom profit margin per t-shirt sold
  • Threadless
  • Zazzle
  • Teespring
  • Redbubble

Sites with fixed profit margin per t-shirt sold
  • TeePublic
  • Society6
  • Design By Humans
  • Teefury
  • Merch by Amazon

13
From Dropshipping
All the different dropshipping companies allow
you to choose your desired profit margin. Also,
since your t-shirt designs are hosted on your own
website, customers wont be able to shop around
and get distracted by what could be available on
other artists shops.  Price your design as
desired. Just keep in mind that very few people
will be willing to pay more than 40 USD for a
t-shirt. Do your research, ask around, and find
the appropriate price for your products.  Dont
forget to take your expenses into account.

17
LITTLE OR NO MONETARY INVESTMENT
1. Set-up dope social media accounts, publish 80
entertaining/informative content and
20 salesy content. 2. Set up a blog and write
relevant content for your target niche and you
subtly mention the cool t-shirt designs you
sell 3.  When images dont help enough, reviews
from previous customers will always be there to
solve your doubts. Its as easy as installing a
plugin to allow customer reviews on your
products. 4. Get a strong SEO game so when a user
Googles products like yours, you come up in the
first page of the search results, leading new
users to your shop. 5. Come up with a hashtag for
your brand and ask your customers to tag your
brand whenever they take a selfie with your
product or upload a picture of them wearing your
t-shirts. Then immediately re-share these images
on Social Media

YOU GOTTA SPEND MONEY TO MAKE MONEY
3 FACEBOOK ADS
1 ABANDONED CART
 When a potential customer provides their contact
information but doesnt complete the order, their
cart is stored as an abandoned checkout. With the
right plugin, you will be able to email these
visitors with coupons to encourage them to
purchase.
This is the best way to get more t-shirt sales.
The advice here is to learn about how to
advertise your t-shirt business.
2 FACEBOOK PIXELS

CONCLUSION!
  • Make a choice and make it soon.
  • As with any other business, the sooner you
    get to it, the faster you will overcome obstacles
    and get ahead of the competition. Both options
    are good, you just have to choose the good option
    for you. Only you know your skills and the time
    you can allocate to this new project of yours.
