The first product I ever sold, a T-Shirt, was from Zazzle back in 2013. I was so excited I showed all my friends the sales receipt, some haters (you George) didn't even believe that someone would buy the silly hip-hop designs I had made from commercial-free fonts online. Fast forward a year later, 2014, I just sold my 1,000th product on Redbubble, a purple t shirt with my FRESH logo on it. I was so happy, and even more happy that the product happened to be this shirt. 

Out of all the sites I sold my art on, Redbubble got the most sales for my art. Over time, with my interest in SEO and writing good copy, I dialed in a Redbubble specific strategy to sell more artwork  At the time I write this I have over 11,000 sales, having sold something every day since nov 2013.

This course shows you specific strategies to dominate Redbubble. 

I will introduce you to a formula of your success, and how to manipulate the variables, like views & conversions, through easy and targeted strategies. We will talk about your profile, collections, activity, titles, descriptions and tags, and more. We will discuss the good, better, and best ways to promote your art for free online. No spending money on ads. Just search engine traffic generating consistent sales. 

I look forward to sharing these strategies with you. I get great joy seeing others be as excited as I was when I started selling my art. I know you will get many times your value back from this course. Get out there and sell some art!!

Who is the target audience?

I can say without a doubt, Redbubble is the best site to sell artwork on. There are others, but Redbubble is the best for newcomers wanting sales. Redbubble is great at promoting your art and, with a little help, making sure search engines find and remember your products.

I will show you my secrets on how to sell consistently with little effort. The same secrets have helped me sell over 11,000 products to date on Redbubble

We will start with general strategy, then go into specific strategies for your art, shop on RB, keywords, title, and description, then finish up with promoting your products and making consistent sales for years to come.

My Qualifications and Works

Business Qualifications

I have always been fascinated with business and marketing, and made this my academic pursuit. While attending Frostburg State University for business with a concentration in marketing, I started a successful t-shirt design business. After graduating FSU with high honors in 2014, I started an LLC for my current web project, the Current X Change. I am particularly interested in branding and online marketing, and hope to share my knowledge with hungry entrepreneurs worldwide.

Design Career

I am an active graphic designer with a variety of skills and disciplines. Besides designing vector art for my t-shirt designs, I do photo manipulations in photoshop, and create fractal art using algorithmic software. I sell designs on t-shirts, stickers, canvas, leggings, and a variety of other products. Over the past two years I have sold thousands of products made with my designs, without spending a dime on advertising.

Web Work

As a high school sophmore, I developed a social network called Myhs[.]us (now retired). I learned PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, and CSS from books, and became quickly obsessed with the web. As a senior in high school, I developed Blurba[.]com (also retired), a site that used AJAX, allowing all interactions to take place in real time without refreshing the browser. Currently, I run a handful of sites related to my art, and am working on a platform called the Current X Change that will allow users to share and sell their digital art. While I don't teach any courses on web development, my experience in web development gives me a more in-depth understanding of online marketing.
