Completely free to use
When starting a business, there are usually a ton of start-up costs required to get the business up and running. Entrepreneurs are expected to pay for the stock, storage, and more. The exorbitant costs usually deter these ambitious people from launching a new business venture in the first place. Fortunately, Moteefe eliminates those barriers. It’s completely free to create an account on Moteefe. We provide the stock, storage, and more. It’s a low-risk way for new business people to launch their own product lines.
All you need is an idea
Although there are a lot of Print on Demand products out there with detailed imagery and designs, you don’t need to be an artist to create a top-selling POD product. In fact, a lot of winning designs are merely text-based. Don’t let your lack of design experience hold you back from the POD industry. To start, all you need is an idea.
What is a white label store?
“White label” refers to a fully supported product or service that is made by one company but sold by another. In this case, the products themselves are provided by Moteefe but they are designed and being sold by sellers like you.
White label stores give brands and individuals the power to sell their own products without dealing with the logistical administrative work like storing stock, handling the delivery processes, tracking postage and more. Instead, it frees up the time of the seller, allowing them to focus on their creative branding and design. To read more on creating your own white-lable store with Moteefe, check out this blog post.
For those sellers excelling on Moteefe.com, give our sister site Marcazo a try. It’s. a great way to expand your business and target a new market.

[00:01:43.800] – Thomas
Check it out. So print on demand. Let’s break it down, print it. And when I say the word print to you, what what do you think. Not print screen print.
[00:01:52.740] – Aidan
I think I see, I see newspapers on a real printing. I see obviously being in the role I am now, I see t shirts getting printed. I say I mean it’s also since packaging being printed. Print’s a very big thing.
[00:02:05.460] – Thomas
Basically it so print is putting the print onto an item. So we’ve got a range of amazing products at Moteefe that you can put your designs onto. We have everything from white mugs to magic mugs to cushions, t shirts, hoodies, women’s hoodies, slightly more shapely for the women T-shirts, baby sweatshirts.
[00:02:33.750] – Thomas
No, not baby sweatshirts, children’s sweatshirts. Babies don’t need a sweatshirt because they’re not in the gym that often. But we’ve got all of these amazing products. We’ve got a whole range wall, art posters, canvasses, all of these things that you can upload a design. So you have a design, you upload to design. And so this is the print stage when somebody orders. That’s when it becomes printed, that’s the demand, so the demand or does demand mean?
[00:02:59.610] – Thomas
Well, newspapers is a good example. Aidan and I could launch a new daily daily newspaper daily.
[00:03:07.630] – Aidan
[00:03:08.370] – Thomas
Yeah, AT daily, AT Daily. Aidan Thomas Daily. And we’re going to print a million copies on the first day. We’ve got no idea if anyone is going to buy it. That’s not on demand unless you’re printing before demand.
[00:03:20.010] – Aidan
We would call it. It’s where it’s at daily. So I declare.
[00:03:24.730] – Thomas
We wouldn’t do that, but if we did do that, then no one would buy it and probably no one would buy it anyway and maybe they did buy it, maybe they don’t buy it, but we won’t know. And that’s why print on demand is the key on demand we print after the sale comes through. So you make a sale. Then we print it, you get paid out, we take it a little bit to cover our costs and keep going, keep hidden in Internet Connexions and whatever food other way.
[00:03:51.360] – Thomas
And does he has a dog. What’s your dog’s name? Larry or something?
[00:03:54.450] – Aidan
Marco. Marco, my next dog. I’m sure I remember that. I call him Larry just for this.
All you need is an idea
[00:04:00.630] – Thomas
Larry the Labrador coming soon to a live stream near you. So that’s the key to this is the printing on demand. So there’s no need to fill a shop with designs, with with t shirts, with hoodies, with all of these things. You bring your ideas, your designs, your thoughts, your inspirations. And they can be simple. We’ve seen in the past few months just simple text based designs, just.
[00:04:25.050] – Aidan
[00:04:26.040] – Thomas
White text written now and then placed on a black or a dark blue t shirt selling tremendously. So it doesn’t you don’t have to be an artist, you don’t have to be a graphic designer. You don’t have to be the next Salvador Dali or Van Gogh with his ear. They’re very simple ideas that you can take. And when somebody orders, we print it. That’s the demand phase. It goes straight to you. It goes through.
[00:04:53.790] – Thomas
It doesn’t go straight to you. It goes straight to them. That’s the other thing. You don’t have to touch it. You don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to go to the post office. You don’t have to do anything. You can be anywhere in the world. I used to do this from a desert island somewhere in Southeast Asia and very good. It was as well. Shout out to the coast weary crew if they’re watching.
[00:05:10.710] – Thomas
So you can be anywhere in the world. You can do this from anywhere. You don’t have to have a manufacturing facility. You have to buy a printer. All you need is an idea. You upload your idea, you drive traffic to that idea. There’s a free Facebook course. Oh, yes. I created in the in the description somewhere around this video. It could be over. It could be down below. I think on YouTube it’s down below.
[00:05:32.790] – Thomas
Aidan, where is it?
[00:05:33.660] – Aidan
[00:05:34.650] – Thomas
Down below. Check it out again. Completely free because why why am I not charging five hundred dollars for this amazing cause or a thousand dollars one. Because we want you to be successful and to because we need you to be successful. And we believe that that Facebook cause will drive your success. So do check it out and follow the tips in there. Join the group Moteefe Global on Facebook and Aidan and Anna will drive you towards success. I’m also active in the group.
[00:06:01.740] – Thomas
Even the CEO of the company cares so much that he’s often active in the group. So that’s what our focus is. And that’s your focus should be on things that you can do without a big investment up front. You might have the next best idea for anything in the world. But if you’ve got a massive initial outlay, that’s the risk. And when you’re doing anything entrepreneurial and doing anything like this is always a bit entrepreneurial, you have to have a bit of that entrepreneurial spirit.
[00:06:32.300] – Thomas
If you can minimise your risk through that process, then that’s the way to do it. This is why people seek venture capital and capital investment from others people to come in and support the business so that they’re not taking on all of the risk themselves. It’s not because they want to give up half of their business or a third of their business or 20 percent of the business they’re trying to bridge the minimise the risk to themselves, get an extra get an extra money and go out and grow the business.
[00:06:58.460] – Thomas
Well, all you have to do to get extra money we print on demand is to just keep on coming up with ideas that sell and the money will grow itself. So that’s the beauty of the business model. That’s the beauty of Moteefe.com. Everything’s completely free. Aidan a few words about offering maybe. What do we offer? We have you sign up for an account at Moteefe.com. What can you do. How can you what have we got in there?
[00:07:22.280] – Aidan
It’s a good question. So first thing I wanted to mention and if is if anyone does have anything stooling them or any doubts in their head, getting the group message me right. They just have a question. What would go on there in terms of products? As we mentioned before, we’ve got a hell of a product, a lot of products. And not only that, it’s creeping ever closer to Q4. So and the hard work you put in now, the more you’re going to go out in the coming months, right?
[00:07:55.010] – Aidan
I see it. I’ve seen it for three years. Every time and every time I’ve just seen sales numbers go up and then up and then up every Q4 and every Q3 and.
What is a white label store?
[00:08:08.450] – Thomas
Indeed, indeed, so Joy Moteefe.com. Not only do we have all of these amazing products and indeed Kufor is coming, the biggest sales bonanza of the year coming soon, Christmas, massive, massive, massive holiday. But you can make money all the way through to get as evergreen issues for the family niche. All of these niches people are having birthdays all of the time, fishing, barbecuing, all of these the issues here, drinking, all of this stuff that’s going on now as we move into coming towards August and the height of the summer in the northern hemisphere, all of this stuff going on.
[00:08:43.850] – Thomas
We also offer white label stores. Why a white label stores important. What is a white label store here? You ask you can buy a domain name on any domain provider out there won’t name. But there’s many and many and many. You buy a domain name. You have you come to us at Moteefe. You can link that domain name to one of our white label stores and then you have your own domain name. It’s not Moteefe.com forward.
[00:09:09.710] – Thomas
Slash your thing. It’s Aidan Aidan a MarcosDoggieTees.Com. And that that show your URL that you’re sorry, that’s your domain name, all of your products within that domain. So that would be that domain name forward slash your product. It’s all nested there so you can start to build a brand. People will recognise that name over time as you start to build up a little bit more of engagement and get some sales. Also, it’s important now because of the whole Facebook thing, we won’t get into it. iOs14 that the Facebook Apple was are going on. Verification that allows you to verify your domain name, your store, so that you can run advertising on wherever you’re going to run advertising to that domain name, primarily through Facebook. Facebook still the. There are other ones coming up. And we’re looking at more integrations all the time. The white heat of industry of Moteefe every day. I mean, we are slackers ablaze every day with messages and people coming up with ideas and pushing, pushing, pushing for for more for more integrations, more improvements, more products, more, more, more to support ourselves.
[00:10:18.890] – Thomas
They’re not doing this. We don’t want to add all these things because we fancy it. We are adding these things because we see true value for our users. So Moteefe Moteefe.com. We also have a sister site. We don’t talk about this much at all. Marcazo because our .com idea was International Spelling Bee Champion, 1964 eight. And how do you spell Marcazo? I can’t quite remember, but Aidan’s Aidan’s all over it.
[00:10:42.620] – Aidan
M a r c a z o
[00:10:46.250] – Thomas
.com. C o m. I know that part. Excellent. And that is our sister site active in Brazil. That’s our Brazilian sister site where you can sell in Brazil, Brazil, a country where people wear t shirts and we sell t shirts, a perfect combination, a country where it’s difficult to import things into the country. So what do we have? We have a production facility in Brazil, a website completely dedicated to that market, completely free, just like Moteefe white label stores, just like Moteefe.
[00:11:18.440] – Thomas
But the difference here, one, they speak Brazilian, Portuguese, Brazil. They speak Portuguese in Brazil, but Brazilian, Portuguese and two, it’s solely focussed on that market, so solely focussed on that market Moteefe you can sell anywhere around the world, you can even make a sale in Brazil if you want. I would recommend if you were going to do that, to use Marcazo Marcazo.com. So Marcazo is a great opportunity. And the third big thing about Marcazo and the Brazilian market is that, yes, we’ve all seen print on demand is just getting going.
[00:11:50.460] – Thomas
This is the beginning of the journey for print on demand, a new a new a new industry, a new way of producing things. And it’s still taking off with anyone that gets it now is still getting in and at the ground level, at the ground floor where we’re going to the moon with print on demand. But still a lot of designs that you would have seen sold in the United States, sold in Europe over the last few years. Those design concepts can be easily adapted to the Portuguese market, to the Brazilian market, excuse me, translated into Brazilian Portuguese redesigned and then sold afresh a new yeah in that market.
[00:12:29.070] – Aidan
Not only that, where everyone thinks, oh, I can’t do the cat niche it’s too saturated. It is a myth. It depends on the design, as we’ve discussed, we’ve seen or the the business that needs to saturate when it’s not saturated in Brazil. Yeah. So that’s good. But it’s definitely not in Brazil.
[00:12:51.110] – Thomas
That could be a t-shirt is not saturated in Brazil. And on that bombshell, on that revelation about the Brazilian market, Moteefe Moteefe.com and because I’m achakzai .com for Brazil, that’s the summing up of this. It’s print on demand is a beautiful thing to do. It’s a wonderful business model. No upfront costs. You can get in free account. Why they Apple store completely free your own domain, start building a brand, stop building an online presence, drive traffic through Facebook, Facebook, Cats’ course in the description and now is the perfect.
[00:13:24.360] – Thomas

We will be back with another exciting edition of the Live Stream next week where we will cover a secret topic that we won’t reveal yet because we haven’t thought of it quite yet.
