What can I sell to the visitors of my blog?

15 replies
I'm building somewhat of a personal humorous blog. My goal is to sell ebooks and stuff like T-shirts. I want to build an audience and interact with it. I also hope to sell things to them. What other customizable things could I sell to my audience? I would like to have things that are branded with my style of humor. Things that I can have input on.

        Teespring is very easy to set up.

        I've not tried it yet but Zazzle lets you print onto loads of things (mugs, clothes, badges, bags, kittens* etc.)

        Zazzle might be worth a look into.



        *maybe not kittens

    What are the best sites to get things like these made? That's a totally different Question.

    Check out Custom T-Shirts and T-Shirt Printing | Spreadshirt maybe it could help.

    Since you say you are building your blog , that tells me that you have just started to blog .

    Before beginning to sell something on a new blog , why not give something away in order to begin to build an email list. Perhaps you could write a short ebook describing what your blog is about and the type of items you are hoping to sell .
    Or you could make a short video they could watch after opting in on your squeeze page. In the video descibe , in your own humorous way , what you blog is about and what you are going to sell and the positive points of why they should buy these items.



    You also need to think about who you wish to sell these items to . What age group , teens , young adults ( 18-25 ) , men only , women only , people that are married , single parents , people who run daycare . You get the idea

    Have a FaceBook lead on your blog that will send the post to all your friends on FaceBook . These should be some good leads as well.

    Build a list from visiters to the blog . They get the Ebook or watch the video , you can engage them through Emails and make sales via affiliate marketing or through selling directly from your blog.

    Be a little more descriptive...what kind of humor are you focusing around ??

    Teespring could definitely be a possible option.

    - Coffee mugs
    - Videos of comedy
    - A membership site

    There are a ton of possibilities.

    I would try to be a little more original than,

    - Hats
    - Teeshirts
    - Pants
    - Coffee mugs
    - Videos of comedy
    - A membership site
    - Stickers
    - etc

    I'm sure all of your competitors are doing the same thing, also note it's going to be quite difficult to sell the above products without a very strong and dedicated fan base. Not just visitors reading your page. If your set on the above products I would recommend one of the following suppliers if your not ordering in bulk http://www.vistaprint.com or Custom T-Shirts - Design Your Own T-Shirts Online - Free Shipping!

    Now, Lets think outside of the box! What about lessons or hourly skype chats on being a comedian or maybe selling personalized jokes for a couple of bucks? You can startup some meetup events or exclusive facebook groups that require dues to be paid for membership. You can also create a simple course on "humor and life" for example. Get creative! Good luck!

    I'd focus heavily on those eBooks or T Shirts, TR. Both seem to vibe well with the humor loving crowd. I'd also add that devoting your energies primary to creating content will help money flow through any sales channel. The money is in the free content; adding relevant channels just induces happy, entertained readers to buy what you have to offer. They buy into your content and brand, and your T-shirts and eBooks are the tools through which you monetize your content.

    Note; add audio books to your arsenal. Audible is a fab site to convert your eBook into audio book, and humorous eBooks should sell well, when produced by a comical talent.

    Happy Prospering

      The amount of eBooks that you have is simply stunning. How many do you plan on writing? I don't think I've ever seen a writer with so many eBooks before. How many authors on Amazon have more than 100 eBooks?

    Partner with some t-shirt networks that are able to sell your designs and you get a commission. If your site is really good and have a big audience then use Patreon and so your community can make monthly payments and get rewards. See the KindaFunny Patreon Campaign as an example.

    Personal humorous blog? About what? Be very specific. It shouldn't be 'everything for everybody'!
    Who are the 'main actors'? What are the visuals? What is the story? What is a purpose of this particular humor, besides being a humor?

    Get it ...? There is some work to be done to get a clear vision and then go into details

    Hope this help.
