It is very unlikely they will give to anyone with just an etsy shop. Do you have a track record of making merchandise at scale?

It will depend on what you are lisencing for the cost. which stories, Lords of the Rings, Hobbit, the others. If it is the movies related like actor likeness etc you are probably dealing with Warner Brothers too.

Don't know where you got the 10K from but seems very low for something like that.

These things don't always have a set price. You negotiations will determine who gets what. How much the fee is how many years.

I think it’s because a lot of people think passive income should be easy or shouldn’t take 5 years. I used to think same but over time I learned I gotta out in time and work in the beginning. I personally would recommend selling digital products on Etsy. It’s much cheaper to get started

sure that's how that works in construction, but shopify craftspeople and artists is a bit different. imagine youre a painter and someone who doesn't know the first aspect of a paint brush tells you he wants to hire you for $12/hr for his custom canvas painting business... the person just posts on Etsy and Shopify that he commissions paintings at $50/hr and sits back while you make chump change...

unless a builder out there has the capability of being a master in all aspects of building a home, there's no reasonable way for a home to be built without different businesses being hired to help. it would be like you hiring a guy who overcharges you for plumbing because your pipes burst and he just hired a plumbing company for you to do the work...

I made a redesign of a niche product I saw on Etsy and sold it with accessories in my region for a year and got to really know the customer. I then acquired funding and developed a mass producible version that was aimed at a higher median income than the competitors with an emphasis on materials and design. And found market traction because it’s a better product and costs similar price.

Not only is it saturated, it takes a lot of supplies and work. I’ve done it before and it’s not a quick money maker. Try to sell on Etsy? Likely to take months bc you aren’t already established and hundreds of other people already do it, and better than you will for the first few months. Don’t try to copy what other people do bc they’re already fulfilling that niche. You need to find something that people need and there isn’t much supply for.

I saw somewhere there is a way to put your t shirt designs on a website (custom ink maybe) then convert that into an Etsy store. The vendor does the fulfillment. You just drive traffic. Marketing only. Pretty passive!

Keep your prices as reasonably high as you can for one thing, low prices gets you whiners. I know this can be tough on Etsy, where you may be competing against mass produced sellers with low prices, but you have to stick to your guns here.

Complaints are inevitable. Some people live to find something to complain about, so try not to let these people get to you. It will be impossible to fully take your emotions out if it, but do try.

Take time to write out some policies that you can lean on when complaints happen. Sometimes something as simple as a coupon can resolve the issue. Gaming this out in advance makes it way easier to deal with later on.

Look at some comparable businesses and see what kind of policies they have relating to this stuff. Keep in mind some policies should be external for anyone to read, and others are strictly internal, and are applied only when a complaint is elevated to a certain level.

Managing expectations is a huge part of preventing unhappy customers, so keep this in mind when you are framing the value of your products. Rule number one is don’t overpromise, it’s always a set up for failure.

Good luck!

Could you go to some upscale craft fairs of sorts? I have been to some where many different artists bring their work. Your name gets out, you can give out cards, etc. Try looking into large universities and art fairs they may have. Also, think about having an online presence for your business. You could sell your fine art on Etsy, create a Google My Business account, start to use social media accounts using your business name, etc. Use the world as your market instead of just the people who might be walking by. You could even get creative and maybe start making shorts to put on Instagram reels or YouTube or TikTok and show your pieces and talk through the process of your creation. Or do them ON the reels and put out the videos. Like have a camera recording as you are designing your art piece and speed it up for a video. Stuff like that. Put your info in the video descriptions. Link to the social media. You could make your own website, too. Also put out a press release into local papers but also online for your business that you are a new business owner opening your own boutique. Then use that in your marketing.

You'll be operating the business as a sole proprietorship. It's a pretty standard and easy way to start your first business, so you'll be fine. If you plan to stay anonymous, you can file an assumed name certificate (usually with the county of your residence) and do business under that.

You can also get a personal EIN from the IRS. Then, open a business bank account using that EIN. You can also use your SSN to open the business bank account, which was what I did when I started my sole proprietorship business. But, looking back, I should have just gotten an EIN. (I've upgraded to an LLC and found that sometimes I still need to use a personal EIN instead of the LLC's EIN.)

You can eventually upgrade to an LLC, but no hurry.

Some quick info for you:

What do you own? Sell everything that doesn’t keep you warm, dry, fed, and getting to work. Everything. The Xbox, the stereo, the vanity car for a cheap car, the comic book collection, the Sonia speakers or AirPods, the fancy cell phone for a cheap one, the Netflix/Spotify/cable channels, the vanity cloths, jewelry, spare vehicles, tools you never use, just look around at your possessions and come to understand your indebtedness from them means they own you.

eBay, Craigslist, Etsy, Nextdoor.com, pawn shops.

Then work on the rest of your wasteful spending - eating out, junk food, partying.

Be brutally honest with yourself, otherwise you are just going back to this crap in the future.

Good question, I could use advice on that as well:

I'm currently trying to remain anonymous from a social media standpoint, but I don't care if the payments from Etsy to my bank account are linked to my actual name.

As long as I'm anonymous in the public eye, I'll do whatever is easiest.

I’ve been in software and always figured I’d move on by 40 or so. My work has dried up substantially the last few months and I’m starting to think hard about what’s next. The easy answer is go back to a full time SWE position (I’m self employed).

The money says stick with software, and it’s easy to get FIRE tunnel vision. But I’m really contemplating a shift to do something different, like open a small retail business or explore something else.

While the world is my oyster, some harsh realities limit what I can stomach. Any sort of barista-esque job would be a 90% pay reduction per hour worked, not to mention working weekends etc. So that’s out for me.

I’m not opposed to going back to school, but I’m not open to moving and I don’t want an office job, ie sitting in front of a computer all day. I’d consider a trade, I’ve dabbled enough at home to know it’s interesting, but the time commitment to get to a point where I could run my own shop would be way too long.

I guess there’s always the software to woodworker pipeline, but I’m not sure how many more cutting boards Etsy can handle.

Anyone make a big career shift, or retrain for something notably different?

Great to hear it’s coming together. Just be sure to be patient and give it time to gain traction. Also one thing I do is push customers from Etsy to my website and incentivize them to shop there instead. I also give discounts to returning customers. E-commerce stores can be hard to find for the average customer so printed material with your website / qr will be helpful. Hope this helps and good luck!!

One link shows jungle outfitters, the other is fauna fashion

Which is your actual company?

One looks similar to bored apes, the other looks like one of those automated logo generators

Also take a look at Etsy and other print on demand services, probably 6,000+ competitors with similar image available, very saturated

You should sell on Etsy and have slightly lower prices or coupons for your website so you can drive customers there. I would also add yarn and other supplies, patterns, etc.

Yeah that first sale is...impossible to me imo, without some way to advertise. I do wanna get that customer first but I was relying on methods that do not need yet another investment...because as of right now I've already invested in subscribing to PhotoShop, already invested in Etsy(though negligible), and Shopify(still at the trial period, but it will pick up before I do)...and every method I am seeing is still telling me to spend more and more money that I already do not have.

Right now, I hope I can be a bit more clear on this, my focus is not returning customers, its continous sales, ongoing transactions, constant money flow....Even if my net profit is 0, I want to know that I have money I can get from the business to invest back ino the business....Just so the mill can start running.

Afterwards, I can move to trying to benefit it more, expanding my reach somehow like increase prices, increase sales, what have you..

I am trying on Shopify and Etsy right now and that's generally the thing I am confused at. I want to switch to my own website but will my website draw traffic if I can't cater to an audience?
My thought process for a plan was, I would sell products via Shopify/Etsy...procure some sales from there and ideally an audience who knows my product, can get it, and because of general sales, I can get recommended more, and it would be a self-profiting cycle. Following all that, I could consider the switch to my own domain, because by then I would have a large enough audience that I can profit while still having my own domain, if not just be able to reinvest back into it all my earnings.
That's my general oversight on this btw, I'm not sure how...applicable that is.

But essentially, with that plan in mind...its a paradaox because I need an audience to build me an audience, so I can build more audience... But there's no way (as of right now that I can think of, for me) to get that first audience.
I'd love to advertise myself on sites and all, but I'm not at a position to be able to make those small investments needing it which....is really pulling me back.

I'm starting off at Printifiy with products in their catalogue, yes! Essentially everything I can find like shirts, mugs, cups, shorts etc..

I'm making designs via PhotoShop and just slapping them on say a coffee mug, then listing it on stores such as Etsy, through Printify....but I've only done one, just to see how the ropes work.

But I've still yet to find a way to promote it.

Etsy isn’t a bad place to sell. Yes they take a cut but your profit margins should be set to handle that and you still make money. Remember that is you can convert a customer from Etsy to a custom on your website that is still a win.

If I were you I would:

  1. Start investing - 401K match, Roth IRA, rest of your 401k. Look up Jack Bogle and the Boglehead investment strategy.
  2. Real Estate. Do you own or rent? save up an buy a place in an area with price upside. Live in it, and start saving for your next place. Buy the second and turn the first into a rental. If you are single get some roommates.
  3. Creative/Unique side hustles. What are you uniquely able to do that could make money? Here are a few random ideas that people I know have done and made about 10k a year (note they aren’t ‘passive’) - Selling custom art on Etsy, breeding rabbits and selling them as pets, raising calves, photography, car detailing (you could do semi trucks or construction/ag equipment), bouncer, DJ.

As a truck driver you have a unique perspective on you and your peers. What problems do drivers have that they would pay you to solve? The interior detailing may be a cool opportunity, I’m sure there are many others as well.

Well this guy might not be a lion but I am.

First things first: You're gonna want to put the same keyword over and over again for every product page. Really stuff the keyword in there. So if you're selling bracelets, your product description should say BEST BRACELETS FOR SALE BEST BRACELETS FOR SALE BEST BRACELETS FOR SALE BEST BRACELETS FOR SALE as many times as you can fit it on the page.

Second, look at what etsy shops are popping up first when you search your product type. Go to their images and just save them to your computer. Upload the images from those stores onto your store. Thats how the game is played and bam, you've already done a direct hit to some of your biggest competitors.

This method has my etsy clients seeing results in less than a week.

Everything except selling on Etsy is semi-passive and requires either upfront work or maintenance. However, it's completely different things from your list because it's more on a creative side snd without too much investment or a steep learning curve.

I agree that Etsy has a built in customer base and is a good way to start out, but once you get good and are sure your business is going places a website will be a good investment. Also could check out listing on wholesale websites like Faire.

Per your edit: lots of people have a problem here with puppy mills and breeders and there’s a strong movement and support of adopting instead and it’s been hugely successful. The breeds from Colombia are “exotic,” you’re just marketing them as such because they come from Colombia. They likely have fewer humane and breeding standards than the US.

If you’re interesting in importing business, I would suggest finding something more sustainable and also easy as it doesn’t involve live animals. I was just in Mexico and bought some beautiful hand made clay mugs for a fraction of the cost that I found similar ones on Etsy. I’m sure there are tons of local artisans in Colombia with amazing goods. You’d be supporting the local economy and providing something of value.

Ps. If wix has ok vendor shipping support etc. it might be good. You may find a multi-store policy works better though eg. Listing on the aggregator market sites eg amazon ebay. Also check etsy and instagram and pinterest especially as those have a cult following of people who’s down time is consisting of browsing bespoke or unique or quirky or whimsical products, there’s no dearth of those if you look properly

Pps: I did an accelerator / incubator (I sadly had to travel a few times to a place about 1800 kilometres away) and have had many stellar organisations and teachers who helped me, and have been and worked in micro and small businesses for about two to three decades so, shout out to my guides and mentor of the past, hope you carry your pollution and environmental burdens without struggling and without regrets, and look for and seek change and champion it. OP, keep your hat on, it can get sunny and windy outside away from a computer :) be conscientious if you begin to go beyond only landing pages or market research or brief and rapid exploration of market fit or demand

Well, I don't know if I'm a lion but I'm happy to help :)

1 week is really early. I had an Etsy store back in 2016 and it took a few weeks before I saw any visits, let alone a sale!

So patience is key.

Make sure each of your products is well described. How things are written matters a ton on Etsy. It can really set you apart. You're an artist, so be sure to tell your story, what inspired you, what moves you. Share your passion and your heart, people will enjoy that. it gives depth to your work.

If you have money to invest, you could consider paid promotion, though I don't know much about Etsy's ad platform.

Be sure to be very active on social, talking about your work. Creating in public is essential to your success. But be careful not to come off too vapid, pretentious or self-centered. you're creating beauty, so the way you tell your story should communicate that.

As an artist, you should draw people into the depths of your heart and mind, exposing yourself to the world and allowing the world to be fascinated by you. Your story matters big time.

It takes time, so you will just need to commit to it, be consistent and share your work day after day. You will build a following and demand for your work, if you stay after it.

If you have questions or want more input, let me know!

I hope this small suggestion helps you out.

The fact you don't want to use Etsy so a percentage doesnt get taken out is the wrong way to think. Etsy will provide the marketing and traffic to your product which lets you focus on your product and customers.

Step 1. You need to work out of people want to buy your product. Easiest way to do this is setup an Etsy store, add your products and see if people buy it.

Great part of this step 1 is you instantly can see if there's demand for what you make or not and skip all the other steps.

You should also be researching your competition. Who are the most successful crochet sellers online both independently, on Amazon and on Etsy? Visit and study their websites, landing pages etc and see what they're doing well. Copy their ideas, the way they communicate with their visitors etc.

If you do the research above you'll.be in the top 1% of small business knowledge as you'll know exactly what works and what doesn't.

Step 2. Once you have figured out if you are making money and people want your product (the above step should take no longer than 1 week. If you go over 1 week it's because you are procrastinating and using Reddit and other sources to skip the action steps.) - anyway once you've done step 1, you now know about your product, you have a bunch of customers you can email and ask questions etc. And now you can think about setting up your own online store using a platform such as BigCommerce or Shopify. Then the fun begins learning about marketing, social media etc but at least you'll already know people want to buy your stuff so this won't be a waste of time and you'll be making money off Etsy in the meantime to fund your marketing/ learning / hiring etc.

Enjoy the journey and remember this is an educational experience. You may not succeed the first one, most rarely do, but you'll learn more than 99% of others and your next one or third one is likely to be way more successful. Good luck!

I sell on Etsy fulltime. Your shop is not optimized for Etsy. I would highly suggest learning about Etsy SEO. It's completely different on this platform. I highly recommend Kara Buntin on Youtube for this.

And like others have said, the photos are a bit rough. Close ups would be great, and perhaps a bit of a lighter background. :)

Most of the so-called passive income ideas out on the web are total BS. Personally, I don’t think of affiliate, marketing, drop-shipping, selling stuff on Etsy, qualifies as “passive”.

A lot of people on the web, promote low-paying side, hustles as passive income, but they are really just delayed compensation with high risk. Things like drop shipping and affiliate, marketing are legitimate, but they are active businesses, not passive income.

You can earn great money from affiliate marketing, but you have to have a pod of cash, plus knowledge to correctly, optimize ads on Facebook, or Google, or take the time to build a large, engaged database.

To me, that’s not passive income.

The simplest methods, or investment in stocks, ETFs, US treasuries, and businesses run by other people. Mineral leases are also super easy once you get through the initial complexity.

The hardest stuff would include all of this affiliate, marketing, drop shipping, and Etsy stuff people try to do. Lots of work, low ROI. Not for me.

Whoa! Maybe I should pay closer attention to my BlueVine (Coastal Community) account. So far, it’s been minimally used with mostly ACH transactions, and I have no complaints. It comes with free debit card (used a couple times with no issues) and free book or two of checks (whatever quantity that is). My partner and I had started an Etsy business and that’s the account we’ve been using for less than 6 months and total volume under $5M (that’s a $5,000) so far. My 9-5 is as a commercial credit analyst at a community bank. I had been at a separate, smaller community bank for 10 years, also as commercial credit analyst, but having started as personal/retail banker, so I have some broad banking knowledge (luckily one gets that when working for a small institution).

Maybe related to your curiosity, I was surprised how easy it was to open the account. I don’t remember it exactly, but I feel like I didn’t even have to scan them photo ID’s of both signers, and I thought something about their beneficial owners process seemed very weak or insufficient, or maybe I am thinking that they were lacking in an authorization resolution. Anyways, for all the supposed efficiency and innovation that Fintechs are supposed to provide, I had more of a feeling like “how are they getting away with being so lax”.

Neither is a business. Start by solving a problem lots of people have. They need fashionable crochet clothing. Then decide who they will find you (Etsy, Pinterest, eBay, google search ads to a website.) then build and sell. Try everything, amplify what works.

Teachers generally have some empty summers and few holidays. Do some tutoring during those hours and/or try to teach adults a subject you're well versed in. As for sales persons, I would recommend not dropshipping (e-commerce efficiency is getting harder and harder to compete with) but you could do Etsy, some general hussling at yard sales or other things that get you going. If both don't sound appealing, I'm curious how you manage your 9-to-5 without passion.

more people made money in crypto than are ever going to admit. People I knew were buying when it was 800 a BTC and i still didn’t, then it was 1300 and I still didn’t. But a lot of people did and that means they don’t have to put up with corporate America on a full time basis. And the explosion of monetized social media. You can invest years in a career and constantly fight to get mire than 50k. Why bother if you can get that selling stuff on Etsy, or shopify or whatever? And lets not even talk about your options if you are a hot chick

Amazon has spoiled customers with their "Free shipping" shtick. Shipping is never free, and is built in to the pricing, at least in part. I see this in ecommerce all the time (we build websites).

Luckily, customers are catching on and realizing there's no such thing as free shipping - it's either built in to the price of the product and advertised as free, or it's calculated in real-time and added on to the product purchase price. You're paying about the same amount in the end and people have finally started noticing.

The biggest thing you're going to run in to is trying to figure out shipping for orders with multiple items in it. If you get an order it might cost a flat rate of say $4 to ship it USPS First Class Package, but if you add a 2nd item in the box now it weighs too much so it's gotta go USPS Priority or UPS Ground. So if you have the option to select buyer pays shipping and rates are auto-calculated, use that. Price your items as best you can. Quality and Creative work sells, especially on Etsy.

I started my sticker business on Etsy in December 2021 and wanted to share it with you 🙂

Would totally love it if you would spare a minute and take a look at it 😊

OFFERING 2 Variations: • Die Cut sticker printed with a high quality ink jet printer on matte finished sticker paper.• Waterproof Vinyl Sticker - printed on water resistant matte vinyl and extra sealed with adhesive laminating sheets making them waterproof and glossy.

Waterproofness was tested under running water for 5minutes sticked on a glass tumbler. Sticker didn’t come off and the colors didn’t fade or smudge.

Shipping is international ✈️

Hey, I would suggest not paying for any course they sell online. Most of the time it is a scam and the information listed you can find for free online. All you have to do is do a search on different platforms. If you or your wife want to get started creating an Etsy store, check out this article on some tips to get started: https://successwithcs.com/tips-for-starting-a-successful-etsy-shop-in-the-usa/

I have been thinking about selling digital products on Etsy or another platform. Without giving away too much info, does anyone have or know where I could go to get good advice on how to do this? Maybe a list of low saturated niches as well.

Learn how to code or turn your love for painting into a digital skillet like photoshop/illustrator.

Coding: you can then build websites for local businesses, help fix e-commerce storefronts, etc.

Photoshop: you can learn design then do just about anything; sell art on Etsy, touch up photos, design marketing materials.

I’d learn a digital skill and start locally when applying it. You can learn to code for FREE and download all the code editors for FREE.

This what I did. Then I just made up fake businesses and built websites for them and I had a “portfolio” to shop around.

It’s even easier now. You just can master Squarespace or WIX.

Or best advice I have is learn Shopify and help local businesses sell online. You can also learn this free by joining their developer partner program.

Hope that helps.

Actually "passive" income would be doing upfront work to make a book and set it and forget it on amazon or other publishers. Designing printable for Etsy upload it and forget but even then if they don't sell you pay to keep the listings active.

Honestly if you want want "passive" buy some land plant some fruit trees and hire the work to harvest and package and transport the fruit out.

Or find out the highest value wood in your area plant a lot of those wait 20-40 years and profit at the end.

So you are producing a product wich you are already selling in your country and you want to sell it abroad?

If you are already selling it in your country that’s very good. If you only have the idea and no product yet I would say it’s best to try it on a very small Scale first.

It is very difficult if you only have an idea. If you want investors you should build up a portfolio to show the work you have done.

There are sites like Etsy where you can sell globally and as far as I know you don’t have to pay anything to set up your online shop there.

Only if you make sales they take a small percentage.

The internet is your best bet here. Try to find a site that fits for your product.

Other than that try to focus on skill building and and Improving your product.

You need a good PRODUCT. A good PLACEMENT (a place where you sell it) And lastly you need to PROMOTE it so people know about it.

Try to improve at least one of these every day a little bit in whatever way is possible for you.

Best wishes and success to you 🙏🏽🙌🏽

Ebay handles the sales tax, but not any personal/income taxes.

But you're right that this is about the IRS going after side businesses because I'd guess a lot of folks on Etsy, marketplace and ebay were basically underreporting taxes (just like folks used to do with online sales tax .)

Alright here we go. Cash to trade - 19% DIS - 16% F - 9% NFIX - 7% GME - 7% ATVI - 6.5% COST - 4% MSFT - 4% BRO - 4% OXY - 4% ETSY - 3.5% TSLA - 3.5% GRAB - 3% NVDA - 2.5% GM - 2.5% AMAT - 1.5% COUP - 1.5% TALO - 1.5% DKNG - 1% Disney is so heavily weighted because it's a hold over from a massive sell-off I did a while ago when stocks were inflated if it was gone I would have that reinvested throughout the portfolio. The bottom 4 are also my newest buys and I think I'll dip dkng soon since I'm already up 3% on it and I have no long term evaluation for a gambling stock during a time of economic hardships.
