This course has one purpose:
To help you succeed on Merch By Amazon.
In this course I discuss
I show that you don't have to be an artist, a master of graphic design programs or create super fancy designs to make passive income on the Merch By Amazon platform.
I use GIMP and Inkscape ( open source and free) graphic design programs and Merchantwords for keyword research.
You do need to have an approved Merch By Amazon account to get the most out of this course but I do show other Print On Demand (POD) t shirt websites that you can use to generate extra passive streams.
There are different options for designing shirts. I like the free software but you use what you like. There are different levels you can move to as you learn and you may change your software as you get better and want more options to be creative.
Don't worry about the template Merch gives you, just set up your own to use over and over.
There are tons of free fonts and many times fonts makes the shirt.

I am a full time Amazon FBA seller and Merch seller. I have been making a living online for the last 2 years. I have a degree in Accounting and worked in manufacturing for over 20 years prior to being self employed.
I have created Udemy courses to help other people like myself. I hope to speed up their learning curve and get them making money online faster without doing as much trial and error that I had to go through.
