Many of you who follow my blog also sell on Ebay, have a blog of your own, and/or do other online work. And if, like me, you’ve been giving Merch by Amazon a try but are having issues, you might want to give TeePublic a try! I’ve been on TeePublic since late last year, and while I’m definitely not earning a huge amount there, I am having consistent sales. This is in sharp contrast to Merch by Amazon, where I have only sold a few shirts.
TeePublic offers you a way to sell print-on-demand items such as tee shirts, coffee mugs, stickers, and more. What I like about it over Amazon is that I get to have my own “store”, offer more products, and have more control over my designs. I have several Disney-inspired shirts on TeePublic that I know would immediately be flagged over on Amazon. Plus Amazon will pull designs that don’t sell within 60 days; on TeePublic, you can upload as many designs as you’d like. And unlike sites such as Zazzle and Café Press, I find TeePublic extremely easy to use!
Amazon sellers are also dealing with people stealing their designs as they use software to target strong sellers. Since TeePublic is smaller, it seems to be free from that issue, as least for now. I see Merch by Amazon going the way of Kindle; once the scammers figured out how to manipulate sales, income for everyone dropped across the board. While the people who got in on Merch in the early days are doing well, it seems much harder for us new sellers as there as now a lot of restrictions. So while I will keep some designs on Amazon, right now I’m just focusing on promoting my TeePublic store!
Who among us couldn’t use some extra money? After the monthly bills are paid, there never seems to be much left over for savings, unexpected expenses, or even for a little fun. And while the easy answer seems to be to take on a second job, that isn’t realistic for most people.
However, there are lots of little things you can do to bring in extra cash! In my book Real Ways To Make Extra Money, I offer over 120 REAL ways to earn cash. These are not get-rich-quick schemes, but tasks that you actually have to work for in order to earn money. And rather than being locked into a set number of hours, most of these are things you can do on your own schedule. The more money you need and want, the more effort you can put in. Many of these jobs can even be expanded into consistent part-time or full-time work. It’s completely up to you!
Not only do I describe each task, but I also tell you how to drum up business and how much money you can expect to make. Whether you are looking to supplement a full-time income or are a stay-at-home mom wanting to make some extra money, Real Ways To Make Extra Money is the book is for you!
There is no faster or easier way to make quick cash than by having your own garage sale; and this easy-to-read book will show you exactly how! In GARAGE SALE GUIDE, I walk you through my proven steps for having a stress-free and successful garage sale. While a garage sale won’t make you rich, it will help rid you of your clutter and put some money in your pocket!
In 101 Items To Sell On Ebay: How To Make Money Selling Garage Sale & Thrift Store Finds! I share a list of 101 things I myself have purchased secondhand and resold on Ebay. This is not a how-to-get-rich-quick book; you aren’t going to be able to retire selling just one of the items listed. However, these are items that are readily available and that, if you purchase at the right (i.e. low) price, WILL make you money! Each item is described along with tips and tricks on exactly what to look for, how much to pay, and what to charge along with listing tips, and shipping guidance.
It’s Friday, which means there is a new vlog up on my SeeAnnSave YouTube channel, which you can also watch below! In today’s video, I share everything I bought at the Barnes & Noble $2 Red Dot Clearance event, most of which I will be saving until later to list on Ebay and Amazon. I also share my TJMaxx Yellow Tag clearance haul, again containing items I plan to resell online. 🙂
My quarterly Ebatescheck arrived today; and I made $93.29 over the past three months through online shopping and referrals! Ebates is an online shopping portal site; you simply create a free account and go through them when you want to shop online. They then track how much money you spend with a particular retailer and pay you a percentage back. What I love most is that it is automatic; they cut you a check every three months without you having to request one or keep track of anything.
In addition to making money simply by shopping, you can also earn money through referrals. When you join Ebates, you get your own personal referral link that you can share via social media, which is what I do. The referral rate increases the more people who sign up using your link; and if you are active on social media, it’s an easy way to earn more money.
I’m going back to my Monday, Wednesday, and Friday uploading schedule on my SeeAnnSave YouTube channel (and to Thursday and Sunday on my SeeAnnAtWDW channel). Saturday is a black hole when it comes to YouTube as there aren’t as many viewers, which means videos tend to get buried in people’s feeds. So, hopefully moving these back to the weekdays will work better!
