Hello hello hello,
And Thank You for enrolling in my course!
My name is Lauren Kinghorn and I'm known as the Visionary Digital Entrepreneur.
This year my focus is on building passive income streams and I'd love to help you do the same.
I've started with RedBubble and so I can show you how to set up your own
How to RedBubble
In this course, I'll take you through How to RedBubble, step-by-step as I'm building a brand new RedBubble Store.
Who is this Course for?
This course is most suited to artists, bloggers or digital entrepreneurs rather than graphic designers, as I'm using Canva to create my designs rather than Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator or Gimp.
Of course, if you're already a graphic designer, you probably won't need any help creating your designs so you can simply skip those lectures.
This course is also for anyone who would like to start generating passive income.
What You'll Learn
You'll learn how to...
Choose a niche
Research designs in your niche
Create your first design on Canva
Upload your first design to RedBubble
Edit your settings on RedBubble so that the design is sized correctly and printed on the right place on each item
Increase your margins so you can earn more commission (see video 14)
Enable clothing for babies and kids (see video 20)
Set up Google Analytics for your RedBubble store
And... how to Avoid a Rookie Mistake
I made a big mistake when I started out on RedBubble that cost me a lot of time - I created and uploaded 15 designs and then had to change the settings on each RedBubble item, one-by-one, afterwards.
That's why in video 19, you'll learn how to copy existing settings on RedBubble when you upload a new design so you don't make the same mistake I did.
If there's anything I left out of this course, please let me know and I'll add a lecture or two to this course or create a new course for you.

Hi, a quick introduction... my name is Lauren Kinghorn, I'm known as the Visionary Digital Entrepreneur.
I have 3 niche websites and I'm working on passive income streams this year - starting with RedBubble.
RedBubble is a print-on-demand site where artists or designers can upload their works and sell them on a number of different items (more about that in the next video).
I'm coming at RedBubble from a slightly different angle to most.
I'm not a graphic designer and I don't create my designs on Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator or Gimp. I'm a blogger and I use Canva for all my designs.
My designs are simple, yet eye-catching and usually more about the words, quotes or sayings, rather than illustrations.
The great news is...
This is the kind of design that sells well on RedBubble at the moment. In fact, they are selling well everywhere. I popped into the Mall the other day and the retail stores were filled with shirts and dresses with catchy words and phrases on them.
I'm not sure how long these kinds of items will be popular, so let's take advantage of this trend while we can.
In this course, you'll see me setting up my new RedBubble store, creating my first designs and uploading them to RedBubble.
I invite you to follow along with me - set up your own RedBubble store, create your own first designs and upload them to RedBubble.
My goal for this course is to give you the best possible chance of securing your first few sales on RedBubble.
Ready? Let's go!
What's RedBubble About?
RedBubble is an extremely popular print-on-demand website, where Artists get to upload their designs and sell them on various different products, within these categories.
Home & Living
Kids & Babies
RedBubble is a destination website (much like Udemy) which means that it is already attracting millions of visitors a month.
The benefit of this is that you can get sales whether or not you promote your work.
Artists upload their work to RedBubble, set their margins and then RedBubble does the rest.
Attracts Customers to their Website
Handles all transactions
Prints your design on the item chosen by the customer
Ships it out to the customer
Keeps complaints or returns to the minimum by producing quality goods
Handles any complaints or returns should they arise
Pays Artists commission based on the margin they set
Now doesn't that sound fabulous?
It is... some Artists are making thousands of Dollars on RedBubble. And the best part is, income is mostly passive.
RedBubble is an Opportunity to make PASSIVE INCOME.
Once you've uploaded your design and made sure it looks great on each item in your store, your part is done.
You can sit back and wait for sales. Or promote your work to your friends and family. The choice is yours.
What we know is, sales beget sales. Once your products start becoming popular, you will step into the flow...and start making money in your sleep.
How to Choose a Niche for Your RedBubble Store
I highly recommend you decide on a niche for your RedBubble store as it's the best way to attract a particular audience and turn them into raving fans of your work.
A niche can be as simple as an interest or hobby of yours - anything you're passionate about or love to do or share.
Think of the one subject you can't stop talking about when you're chatting with friends.
What posts do you always share on Facebook?
What Pinterest pins attract you?
What activities do you enjoy doing in your leisure time?
Or, your niche could a brand, blog or business you are already developing and would like to promote.
Or, your niche could be your message to the world, the legacy you'd like to leave.
If you're unsure of your niche, don't let this be a stumbling block to getting started.
Just use your own personal name (or some variation of your name if you want to maintain some privacy) to name your RedBubble store and get started.
How to create a logo on Canva for your chosen niche so that you can add it as a vector to your RedBubble Profile.
(Of course, if you've chosen your own personal name for your RedBubble store, all you need to do is add a profile picture of yourself).
You can use the Free Version Canva to create your own logo, however, you're going to need to Canva Pro to create transparent images for RedBubble. If you click on my affiliate link below, you can take advantage of Canva's 30-day free trial.
After 30-days, Canva is $12.95 a month or $9.95 a month (billed yearly) and it's worth every cent. Canva is one of the essential tools I use every day as a Digital Entrepreneur.

How to Add Your Personal Bio to Your RedBubble Profile. Your Bio has a limit of 500 Characters.
Tip: Type up your text in a Word Document first so that you can make sure you keep it down to 500 Characters. and then copy and paste it into your RedBubble profile.
To check on the number of characters in a Word document - highlight your text, click "Review" from the top menu and click "Word Count" on the Left Hand Side.
In this video, I show you how to create a square design on Canva, using the dimensions 3725 x 3725 px as this is the biggest square design I can create on Canva. I use these dimensions on all the items I enable in my store.
You can size down on RedBubble, you cannot size up, so it's best to create the biggest design possible to ensure the best quality when you print. This is the only downside I've found to using Canva - you cannot go HUGE.
If you are creating your design on Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator and possibly even on Gimp, you can use RedBubble's recommended Dimensions, the size of design on King Sized Duvet covers, 7632 x 6480 pixels
Read more and get dimensions and templates for specific products in the Help Article on RedBubble - see the link below.
In this video, I show you how to edit stickers, including how to increase your margins so you can earn more commission on stickers.
This is the only item where I increase margins from 20% to 50% because you're unlikely to lose sales if you increase your prices on stickers as they cost very little.
I also show you how to edit the settings on Phone Cases.
How to Avoid a Costly Mistake
I made a rookie mistake when I started out on RedBubble that cost me a lot of time.
I created and uploaded 15 designs and went on to change the settings on each RedBubble item, one-by-one, afterwards. It took me days.
In video 19, you'll learn how to copy existing settings on RedBubble when you upload a new design so you can avoid making the same mistake I did and save yourself a ton of time.
