I absolutely love your podcasts! so super helpful!
Looking forward to taking one of your courses. Have been on Merch for a few months and still unable to get out of the first tier.
Ok. Are you ready for my question?
If you don’t have a social media presence, do you need to develop the social media presence before doing tee shirts?
I have an idea for a niche, but not sure if I should learn about tee shirt design first and then develop the social media strategy second. Or should I develop the social media strategy around the niche first( using images, quotes ) then develop the tee shirts?
Hope this makes sense.
Sandy, most of my sales on Amazon are from being found on Amazon, not from having a social media presence. Now, is it best to have one? Sure! But that’s what makes Merch By Amazon so attractive. You don’t need one because of Amazon’s organic traffic. You can also get sales from Spreadshirt, RedBubble, etc. by getting found in their site marketplace. So it’s not necessary but definitely helpful if you have one so you won’t have to rely on their organic traffic and can drive your own.
Got it. Thank you Lisa.
Love the podcast!
I have affinity design and photo. Will I be able to follow along in your course even though it’s not Photoshop ? I am a beginner.
Thank you! Which course? You’ll need Photoshop for the Photoshop course, but it doesn’t matter what you have for the other 2.
I am referring to the course where you teach about using shapes to create characters for tshirts.
It’s a Photoshop course, so you need Photoshop to follow along.

I really enjoy listening to your podcasts would you be coming to SoundCloud anytime soon?
Thank you! Ya know…. I was going to submit but I remember their submission process not being straightforward so I need to go back and revisit. For some reason I stopped when I had planned on it, and it had something to do with their process. Thanks for letting me know that’s your preferred choice so I need to get on it and get it up there.
LOVE these podcasts, Lisa! So much great information for FREE. 🙂 I’m signing up for your POD courses right now to learn even more. I have no doubt (or fear) that it will be money well spent!
Thank you Rita!!

Lisa just to let you know, I listen on Android so your content is already available. For Android users I suggest downloading a podcast app, my favorite is Pocket Casts. Once installed just search for passive shirt profits and you will be set. BTW I am a new fan. I discovered your 2 Create a Website podcast recently and I gave to say you are doing a great job!
Thanks Craig! I just got approved for Google Play so that will also make it easier for Android users. Appreciate you sharing this and listening!
More people use Android than Apple. Why discriminate against those who choose the most popular way to communicate?
I just haven’t gotten around to adding the other players. Stay tuned… they are coming. 🙂 Thanks for reminding me.
Stephen, just to let you know I am now on Google Play. Hopefully that helps you listen and download my podcasts easier now. 🙂
