The Online Store | Week 59
“Change the equation, and you won’t need to worry about money again. Time = Money.” – Bryce Ward 6/19/2021
Continuing from last week’s topic of building a community as a content creator, I could not help but ask myself how do I make money from this online venture? While yes, I would need to have a decently sized community put together before making money from brand deals or advertising however I can still build an online store. This way, I can sell directly to my customers without going through a third party like Twitch to earn an income.
What Would This Storefront Look Like?
Since BryceIsTubing is still a small brand, I have lots of room to explore different ideas. For my first online store, there would be t-shirts, stickers, and other clothing items. I would love to try out selling artwork pieces of my BryceIsTubing logo. I could even go as far as to put my logo on player mats, deck boxes, and card selves. From what I have learned at Stupid Raisins, you want to give them a free sample of your products whenever you are introducing a customer to your company. Once you have them in your email list from claiming your free product, you offer them a low-priced product to get customers to open their wallets. Finally, you can sell them your standard products for around $30 and continue to go up the totem pole of price categories.
Hey, thank you for reading this week’s post! I plan to use my book Tales of A Dungeon Master to test my first online store. I can’t wait to finish up the book and get it out to everyone next year! Speaking of which, I got a short story to write!
