The Importance of Nailing Down What Printables Should You Sell on Etsy
A key part of launching your printables business is deciding what niche to start out in. Picking a niche gives you the advantage to communicate with your target customers on a deeper level of expertise. Too often though, it seems to be the most challenging part! If you make your niche too specific, do you run the risk of having low demand for your printables? Or if you make your niche too broad, will you have trouble gaining authority?
I know this process can make you feel STUCK! However, once you nail your printables niche, not only will your customers recognize your business easily, but they will see you as the expert in that field, and ultimately, you will make more printables sales on Etsy.
Struggling to Pick the Right Niche Is Normal
I am no exception to the rule! Afterall, It took me two years to finally commit to the idea of selling printables, even after I sold my first printable on Etsy. Yes, I waited that long. Even though I was extremely burned out from making handmade party decorations, fear was holding me back. I mean, hello! There were already so many people selling printable party decorations on Etsy! Would it even be worth it to make that my new niche?!
Turns out the burnout won out over my fears! I took a leap of faith and decided THIS IS MY NICHE.
What Made You Want to Sell Printables in The First Place?
Perhaps it would be good if we go back to the reason that most of us come to the idea of selling printables in the first place. For one, we are OVER our “real” jobs that don’t allow us to be creative. We’re in industries that don’t light us up or allow us to just relax and create. And that, my friend, is why I love printables and why I say that creating and selling printables is the most effective and fun way to use your creative skills to make passive income. That’s because it gives us everything our “real job” doesn’t. That ability to be creative, have fun, AND make money.
It sounds like a dream though right?
