Fear and Self-Sabotage Disguised as Reason
Meet Jill. Jill manages a service operation that consumes her week days. Back in September, 2019 Jill decided start an online tee shop so she took the plunge and became a Graphic Tee Coach member. I pulled these numbers from her account:
She sold 20 shirts and made about $200. Not bad for month one.
She sold 50 shirts. She made around $500. How does an extra $500 in your bank account sound? Heck that’s $7,000 a year! (No, my math is not wrong… December counts for three months… read on)
40 shirts sold. $400. Why the small drop? Well, she hit on a bit of a hot seller in October. Those come and go. You'll learn more about hot sellers later.
She sold 300 shirts. An extra $3,000 into the bank during a month when most people are scared to look at their credit card bill!
100 shirts, $1,000 in the bank. That's pretty good as January is one of the worst sales months because many people have spent all their money in December.
107 shirts and another K in the bank.
Here’s the most important part of all… in March (yes, March 2020… the month we all started feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic), she’s on pace to sell 100 shirts. She has sold 75 as of March 20th - the time of this writing. What does this mean to you? Even if you’re stuck at home during a pandemic that’s causing a global financial crisis, you can still earn money selling t-shirts online!
Okay, so I promised you I’d tell you how to do it. Here's how I got Jill there:
Is self sabotage holding you back from making money from POD? Maybe it's an even bigger problem, that almost everyone has when starting out as a seller...but I have a solution for that one too. So keep your eye out for my next email coming in a couple of days. And if you haven't already, please add my email address to your contacts list to prevent it from going to spam.
