PODForest.com Review: A “Print on Demand” Design Marketplace

Over the past 23 months on Merch Pursuits, there’s always been one thing that constantly amazes me: the amount of opportunity that presents itself in world of Print on Demand.

We’ve seen a lot of extremely useful Merch Resources pop up, such as Merch Informer, Pretty Merch, or Merch Buddy. I even capitalized on this market by creating a website called Merch Ready Designs, which is a website that allows you to purchase pre-made Merch by Amazon designs that are “ready to upload”.

The part I never really got into was WHY I created MRD in the first place. Essentially, I had become so efficient at outsourcing that I ended up with hundreds of stockpiled designs, but not enough slots in my Merch account to upload them all. I guess you could say MRD was created as a way to sell my unused designs.

PrettyMerch Review: Displays Beautiful Dashboard With A Simple Chrome Extension

Have you ever wished for more data in your Merch dashboards? I know I have.

I’ve always wanted the ability to see things like what color t-shirts sold, what some of my top-selling shirts are, or whether  my shirts were sold to a man, woman, or child. Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to find these things with the built-in analytics.

If you’ve been craving more metrics, then you’re about to be very glad you read this post.

Merch Text: A Free Extension To Autofill Title, Bullets, and Descriptions

Hey guys!

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to reuse common brand names, titles, or bullets in your Merch by Amazon listings? Of course you have. We all upload more designs in niches that are selling well for us. We also upload designs variations, color variations, and make change designs to our best-selling designs in order to maximize profits.

Update 5/29/18: A new tool called  Merch Buddy has emerged. I recommend this over MerchText.

A 3 Month (No-Upload) Merch By Amazon Income Report / Case Study

Welcome back to another Merch Pursuits income report! It’s been 3 months since my last one, so I’m really excited to be creating another for you. I’m sure you’re all wondering why I haven’t created one recently, but don’t worry, everything you need to know has been included in this post.

Before I get into those reasons, I wanted to point out that it has nothing to do with lack of sales. In fact, these last 3 months have been the best months I’ve ever had!

So, if that’s the case, what have I been up exactly?

Merch Pursuits Gets A Fresh New Look!

I had some unexpected freetime over the past few days (pretty serious dog bite to the hand), so I decided to give Merch Pursuits a much-needed rehaul. I hope you like the changes as much as I do!

New logo, new website theme, and a much better user experience for mobile readers. I also added a pretty cool Merch Pursuits timeline for all my old posts.

Even with one hand, I still have Merch on the mind, and that’s not going to change anytime soon!

Merch Check Review: Checking the Copyright of a Phrase Without Leaving Your Webpage

A few months ago, I was introduced to a Chrome Extension called Merch Check.

What is Merch Check, you ask?

Merch Check is a simple Chrome extension that allows you to check the copyright of a word, phrase, or quote without ever having to leave the webpage you are on! Whatever phrase you type in is automatically checked against the uspto.gov (TESS) database of officially registered trademarks.

Merch Income Report #8: My First $1,000 Month!

Hi everyone!

It’s time for yet another Merch Pursuits income report! This post has been a long time coming. As the title suggest, I’m happy to report that after just 8 short months on Merch by Amazon – I have finally hit $1,000 in [organic] t-shirt sales!

And by organic, I mean I have done zero marketing or zero social media sharing. I literally wake up, log into Merch, and see if any designs have sold.
