Passive Income: How I Make $1000 Per Month

Several months ago, I launched my Redbubble shop, and I already have more than 600 designs available.

Perhaps you’re curious about the revenue generated with my 600 RedBubble designs.

Selling stickers on Redbubble brings in about $1,000 each month for me. Without having to promote or maintain my shop, I was able to churn out enough stickers in minutes to make a full-time salary every month.

To be honest, only 50 of the 600 designs are profitable, with eight of them generating the most revenue month after month. The majority are t-shirts and sweatshirts, with others being stickers.

As a result of discovering the full potential of print on demand, I plan to open five additional stores and try to carve out a niche in the most popular categories in order to make even more money.

If you earn more than $20 each month, Redbubble will pay you on the 15th of each month. You have the option of receiving money via PayPal or direct bank deposit.

You may make even more money by starting a Teepublic shop and selling the same designs that you sell on Redbubble there as well.

Without putting in any additional effort, you may double your revenue using this strategy.

Print on demand is how I make $1,000 a month, and the best part is that you don’t need any graphic design knowledge to start earning passive money with print on demand.

Every single part of your business is based on the amount of time and effort you put into it; if you publish 2000 designs to Redbubble, you may expect to earn more than $5,000 each month just by posting photographs.

To cover a larger geographic area and offer a larger number of clients, you can extend your business by building new locations in other categories.

What Is Redbubble and How Does It Work?

You may customize your work on over 80 different products when you post it to Redbubble.

You have complete control over your pricing because you choose which things to offer and set your own artist margin.

When a buyer buys one of your products, Redbubble takes care of production, shipping, and customer service so you can focus on what you do best: creating wonderful art!

Opening a shop and selling your art is absolutely free, and you can keep track of your earnings on your Dashboard.

Examine Your Costs

Each item has a base pricing that includes Redbubble’s service fee as well as the cost of production.

Artists can specify a percentage markup, also known as a ‘artist margin.’ The margin is set to 20% by default, but you can change it to whatever amount you like for each product.

To change the artist margins for each of your products, go to your Dashboard and click on product price. This article goes about pricing in greater depth.

Pro Tip: The most successful Redbubble artists are always updating their portfolios with fresh work.

Each month, we recommend introducing four or more new designs. Keep things interesting by releasing new artworks every week and informing your followers on social media about your latest ideas and items.

Use Trends and Customer Insights

Trending themes can be a terrific approach to discover inspiration and attract new audiences while you’re generating new work and thinking about promoting your Redbubble shop.

It’s a good idea to ask yourself a few questions before you begin the creation process.
