How it works?

How to sell merch with Merch38

How to start?

Get to know your audience well

First of all, you must know your target audience well. Before you start a branded merchandise business, do a little market research. It should allow you to pinpoint various characteristics of your ideal customer, including their age, social, economic and educational profile, hobbies, etc. You can use surveys and data to paint a picture of your potential swag-buyers.

Learn more about your competitors

To make money by selling products, you need to attract customers to your online store. To do this, it’s wise to find out what strategies your competitors are using. Find out their trade secrets as well. Read their blogs, visit their websites, and get information from all sources, such as their social media pages, to get some insight into their business world.

Set Up An Online Store

Start by creating unique and interesting artwork. This is the most critical part of your future swag store. Then choose the categories of merchandise you will sell. It can be T-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, mugs, tote bags, or all of these. Add a description of your merchandise. With Merch38, you can install a widget directly on your main website or create a stand-alone online merch store.

Use social media

By itself, opening an online store to sell branded merchandise is often not enough to make money. If your target customers don’t find your online store, they won’t be able to buy your swag. So you need spread the word about your newly established store on social media. Use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. to promote your store.

Use marketing tools

You should run email campaigns, too. You can get emails from potential customers in many ways. Start a newsletter and ask people for their names and email addresses when they sign up for it.
Also use cross-selling and up-selling tactics. Cross-selling and up-selling is encouraging people to buy other products related to the main product the customer bought. When a customer goes to your online store to buy a branded product such as a T-shirt, you can show other products on the website page, such as tote bags that go well with the T-shirt.

Easily measure your sales approach

Another important advantage of selling branded merchandise through an online store is that you can easily measure your results. You don’t need expert help to see and analyze your sales and performance. All the stats you need are in your Merch38 account.
