If you start testing now, you’ve got time to concentrate on promoting your best sellers once you know what’s working. For more on how to measure your success with your campaigns, watch this video from our Print on Demand experts over on our YouTube channel. 

You might also want to consider putting a slightly bigger spend on your social media advertising budget and fine-tuning your target audiences by event and product. 

We wish you every success in this year’s contest and we can’t wait to see what great designs you bring to the Market with Moteefe! #GoMakeIt

Tips for selling in September and firing up for Q4

Tips for selling in September and firing up for Q4

The summer months are cooling off and September is the perfect time to start testing those Christmas designs.  It’s a new season and although Christmas might seem far away, it’s time to start finalising your designs and testing  for your best shot at selling big during Q4!  As the nights are drawing in and more people are spending time at home, Moteefe is running an awesome wall art contest with cash bonuses.  More on that later. ut For now, take a moment to reflect on some challenges you’ve faced throughout the last few months and how you can tackle them ahead of the biggest quarter in Print on Demand.

World Beard Day: September 04 2021

One September event coming up is World Beard Day.  Facial hair has made a comeback, and this day is perfect for anyone who loves to celebrate their beard growing abilities! The pandemic may have contributed to this trend, with more people staying at home and social distancing measures in place – but the ‘clean and tidy’ beard is a look proudly upkept by millions of men across the world.  With regular grooming, washing and oiling all part of the gentleman’s beard care regime, we can think of a few good ways to celebrate the bearded man with a range of Moteefe products…

Men with well kept beards are often proud of them, and there’s a sense of community for men who do a good job of grooming. Dads, brothers, and uncles are all good target groups for this hairy niche. When creating your design, don’t forget, adding an element of humour is always a good idea.

Posters or canvases are a great product right now that would suit the beard niche ahead of World Beard Day.  Think of places within the home that a bearded male may reside or the spot where he does his grooming. The possibilities are endless!

The Moteefe Wall art contest 2021

Here at Moteefe, we offer canvases and posters of all sizes and we want you to take part in this year’s Moteefe Wall Art contest! So how does it work? To get you started selling click here to fill out our form for some great #podready artwork.

  • Promotion 1: Sell 50 canvases and receive $100. Sell 100 canvases and receive $250. 
  • Promotion 2: Sell 50 posters and receive $100. Sell 100 posters and receive $250. 

Before our price drop, selling 100 large portrait canvases at $59.00 in the USA would have generated a $2,890 profit. But right now we’re offering our canvases at a lower base cost. Now, selling 100 large ones at the same price will generate a whopping $3,439, that’s an increase of $539. So what are you waiting for?!  

Families are great for wall art. Children’s rooms, gaming, sport – specific activities a child enjoys work well. Add the Personalize feature leaving room for the child’s name with our custom text tool. You can use the colour dropper to match the colour of your custom text area to the original design!

Niche spotlight

If none of these September dates are of interest to you, be sure to keep updated with our blogs and social media for our Niche spotlight.  Each week our Niche Spotlight will focus on one great niche from the Design Bundle giveaway and explore some opportunities for you to take straight into your next Moteefe campaign. The fresh artwork drop becomes available here each month.  Follow us on Instagram and be sure to check our stories for cool insights. 

This week the spotlight is on hiking, the healthy hobby most popular in the United States, which saw a 171% increase in hikers during 2021.  Get your hands on 7 Hiking designs absolutely free.

Remember, to capitalise on these National Holiday dates such as World Beard Day, it is important to start marketing your product lines early!  Market weeks, or even months in advance so your target audience has time to purchase and receive their products before these dates come around.  Once you have decided which niche groups and upcoming events you want to target, it’s up to you to market your products to the masses.

Luckily, Moteefe has a ton of free resources available to help you succeed with your Print on Demand journey!

Now is the time to launch some new seasonal lines! Seasonal sales can help keep profits flowing all year round. We can’t wait to see what you come up with…

 

Happy selling!

Get in the spirit

Christmas is the key to both Q4 and the Moteefe Winter Contest.  Products aimed at children and the family will do very well.  In December, people buy every single day of the month.  Focus on all things festive, from seasonal prints to cushions and mugs.  

Print on Demand ugly Christmas jumpers

POD Moteefe Winter Contest Tips and Tricks: four examples of ugly Christmas jumper designs

Print on demand ugly Christmas jumpers, in particular, are very profitable and always popular.  Use a successful past design and see how you can translate it into silly seasonal sweaters.  Use Google images for inspiration.

Harness the selling power of Q4

The Moteefe winter contest and Q4 are a winning combination.  There are several powerful seasonal events in Q4 that can drive massive sales.  Not only is Christmas in Q4, but there is also Halloween, Thanksgiving and Black Friday.  Online shopping has never been so popular.  Aim to hit the ground running and scale-up.  Work so that you have 40 to 50 campaigns in September.  The more campaigns you have, the better position you will be to take advantage of Q4.

Set up a Moteefe custom domain store 

If you want a chance at winning a top prize, you will need to open a custom domain store.  Platform data shows that they can result in bigger cart checkouts.  A store will allow you to send remarketing emails throughout the contest.  If a sale doesn’t make the competition cut-off, you will still have gained the email address of a confirmed buyer.

Enable cross-selling 

Cross-selling increases sales.  Once you have hit on a successful campaign, create two campaigns to cross-sell.  Optimise by adding and removing tags until you see a cart combination that you are happy with.  Take care only to connect products from either the same or complementary niches.  Do not show products in different languages together.

Broaden your horizons

POD Moteefe Winter Contest Tips and Tricks: four examples of customisable text for ugly Christmas jumpers with mass appeal

People are buying gifts for friends and loved ones, and they need your help!  Map out every type of human relationship you can think of and see what you can create to cater to them.

If you are in the doctor niche, expand into a related field such as nursing or dentistry.  If you are in the cat niche, see if you can translate your designs into bunnies, otters and hamsters.  List out every type of profession, hobby, interest and sport that comes into your head.  You will likely find that many concepts work across different niches.

Sell in many languages

One way to scale up is to translate your campaign into new languages.  Run successful designs in four to five languages for a good chance of claiming the top prize.

Tap into the lucrative market of foreign nationals living abroad.  You can do this by targeting small language groups (Dutch, for example) across Europe or even the world.  Research interests on a national level and use this to layer your targeting.  Try to look for people who have liked Dutch football, a university, a TV show or celebrity’s Facebook page.

Find a big winner

Aim to create at least one design with mass-market appeal.  Alongside your targeted offerings, you will need to hit on a design that appeals to a large group of people. Think about something that you can market to all people over a certain age or from a specific country.  You could also try to find something that appeals to married or engaged couples.  Parents and new parents are also a large group of interested buyers.

Make a plan of action

Set yourself a weekly schedule.  Put aside time for researching ideas, designing, creating campaigns, monitoring, translating and scaling.  Use a spreadsheet to keep track of design variations, niches, languages and tests.  Using a spreadsheet will help you identify what is working for you as you scale up.

Research inspiration from top-selling items on Google, Amazon (.com), Etsy and Pinterest.  Tweak successful designs and translate them into new languages.

Pick your target and work out how to get there.  You will need to run many campaigns and draw up a plan of attack if you want to make it to the highest tiers.  Look at the number of units you need to sell each day and how many campaigns you need to achieve this.

POD Moteefe Winter Contest Level 1

Tier 1: $50 for selling 250 units = 4.2 units a day throughout September, October, November and December.

POD Moteefe Winter Contest Level 4

Tier 4: $1,000 for selling 2,500 units = 23.4 units a day.  

One successful campaign in a big market should generate about 20 units per day. But, you should only expect one campaign to run over 15 days or so.  You will need to create and run at least two winning campaigns a month to maintain this rate per day. Not every campaign you create will be successful.  To guarantee success, aim to run 10-15 new campaigns every month.  That will mean uploading and testing one new campaign every other day.

POD Moteefe Winter Contest Level 5

Tier 5: $2,500 for selling 5,000 units = 46.8 units a day.

To achieve this you need three to four winning campaigns.  You will need to work on around 20 campaigns a month.

POD Moteefe Winter Contest Level 7

Tier 7: $6,000 for selling 10,000 units = 93.5 units a day.

Reaching this level requires four to six winning campaigns and more than one niche.

POD Moteefe Winter Contest Level 9

Tier 9: $20,000 for selling 25,000 units = 233.7 units a day.

This will need a serious commitment.  You will need to be selling in two to three niches and in at least one other language.  Aim to run four to five test ads every day and scale up the successful campaigns.  To reach this level, you will most likely need to work with a designer.  Factor in time to find, test and negotiate a rate and work package with a talented professional.  Strive to send them 100 – 500 ideas every month and ask for three to four variations of each design.  Test everything to find your winners.

POD Moteefe Winter Contest Level 11

Tier 11: $100,000 for selling 75,000 units = 701 units a day.

Reaching tier 11 will take full focus and a big commitment.  You will need to run 20 winning designs every day.  You will need to hit on designs with mass-market appeal. Run these alongside five to 10 selective niches.  Set aside four hours a week for research to generate about 100 good ideas.  Think about employing two designers to help you scale.

Tips and tricks to help you sell and win big

Start now

Plan well ahead to take advantage of Q4’s awesome events and see what Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year twist you can put on your existing best sellers.

Don’t be dismayed if things are a little slow to start. Dedicate some of your social media budgets to small-spend Facebook engagement ads and test out what products work best for you in different markets. If you start now, you’ve got loads of time to concentrate on promoting your best sellers once you know what they are.

You might also want to consider putting a slightly bigger spend on your social media advertising budget and fine-tuning your target audiences by event and product. 

Custom name stores

You’ll need a custom name store to start building up your email lists and remarketing to your buyers at each Q4 event. This will help you capitalise on every sale and drive your momentum forward and into those top-level prize tiers of the Moteefe Print on Demand Winter Contest. If you haven’t already got a custom name store, set one up now.

Temperature check

The clue is in the competition name. Think about where your customers are based and what the weather is going to be like there in the next three and a half months. Suppose your buyers are in North America, Europe or Russia. In that case, it’s going to get pretty cold out there, so consider making sweatshirts and hoodies your primary offering and upselling lighter items like T-shirts and vests. Mugs and cosy home decor items such as cushions should do quite well too. Some parts of Asia will be cooling down also, but light apparel should still sell well. Buyers in Australia and New Zealand will be experiencing their summer, so opt for hot-weather products and include some summer themes.
