Selling printables is a fantastic way to build an income on the side. They’re an excellent source of passive income and can be created by anyone, whether they’re experienced or a beginner.
The key to successful printables is making the right products and attracting customers. Rachel recommends creating content that people will want to print out and use on a daily basis, like planners or calendars.
Create an Etsy Listing
Once you have your product ready, it’s time to add it to your Etsy shop. To start, you’ll need to decide which file format you want your customers to download – most likely a PDF. You can also use JPEG or PNG, depending on your needs.
Make sure your PDF prints can be downloaded instantly – this is the main draw for buyers. You can even include a small description to give them more information about the product.
Keywords are Important for Success
Using the right keywords will help your listings show up in searches and increase your visibility on Etsy. The first 3-5 words of the title are most important and you should focus on long tail keywords that are less competitive.
How to Set Up Your Shop
To create your shop, go to the Etsy dashboard and click on Listings > + Add new listing. Once you’re inside, choose digital when defining the product type and upload your artwork.
You can now sell your art prints in your Etsy store and get paid for every sale! The costs are low and your shop will be set up for you, allowing you to focus on growing your business.
