My thought on this juncture.
Several more days past. Worked many hours but it goes too slow. Anyways I do follow what my strategy. Going to go faster!
Today I realize that I do things more like as a professional then a business man. Business man would create a strategy to hire people and to try to make more business for the shorter time. Now I do all the things myself and because I try to load designs to a few platforms I spend a long time on one design. Now I think to correct a bit my strategy and priory platform that are more important for my opinion regarding prospects of making sales. I still need to test more all the platform to get more stats. In the beginning my plan was to load 100 designs to every platform I want to test so in a month I would see the difference and would be able to decide which to chose to invest more time to. Hope I will do it at least to the end of October, because now i understand that things go too slow for me. Well, there is also something I see as a real deal that can be done by me at it’s time. I understand that I will meet (create) a designs that will work great and I will test then with paid ads so I will be able to make really huge amount of money at a shirt time. So I go on.

Table 2. Total Profit and profit made from each POD platform on September 29-th 2016.

|2||REVENUE FROM ALL SALES||$344|
|7||TOTAL PROFIT FOR 23 DAYS||$284|
Table 3. Total spend, revenue and profit made from September 1 to September 29-th 2016.
So, for today my total is $284 what is about 0,28% from my goal. I’m still far less then at 1% of my goal!). And I have to say some more — I won’t even be able to get paid by this money! The reasons are — some platform demand that payout must be over $20 or even $50. And Amazon pay only in the end of the next month for the previous month… So you see. Anyways! i will go through!
DAYS REMAINING: 126
Some news for today.
Was looking for POD where would be able to sell socks and found it on VIRALSTYLE ( viralstyle.com ). Well, it’s far away from a perfect platform where is possible to sell socks, because here you can sell only mens sock of white color and M and L sizes, but it’s at least something. I made easy design and sent to my email lists the campaign and had 1 sale! Wow! First sold socks in my life!)
Wanna show you this:
Viralstyle is really good platform! Great analytics and many different products to choose. But I don’t think there will be organic traffic.
And here is my Zazzle dashboard with my $29.60 .Well, i sold just one hot politic design! So now it’s not as much trendy and there is almost no activity around my politic designs. And what is really strange to me — there is no sales on other «evergreen» designs! That is really frustrating for me, I have to say there are almost no views of my products. Zazzle need special keywords picking and social network sharing! Anyways, I have just a few designs uploaded to it, because it is the most inconvenient platform from all I use.
Lets go on!
And lets go back to MERCH BY AMAZON, I love this platform as much as TEESPRING!
Second day in my life have had 12 sales per 7 days! I know it’s just 12 sales, but now for me its really cool!
Look what I have for 29 days of September.
I would say not bad (only because I want to motivate myself for more;), but the 30% tax will cut off the money you see here, because my mistake of not adding TIN number right when I filled W8 form. Starting from October it will be fixed, I figure.
Wow! I had one sale on DESIGNBYHUMANS!)
Redbubble looks really good for me now! At least there are some real organic sales!
And for the last news I’m going to tell a few words about TEEPUBLIC. It just stopped sell any of my designs! Seems like the reason is that they have discount price for the firs 2 days — $14 and then it rises to $20. So probably audiences there mostly go after cheap shirt and that makes sense to me. At least now).
Alright. The only one thing want to tell you all guys and me from the future reading it proudly because of the results I will get: I WILL GO ON AND WILL GET THERE! Whatever obstacles I will meet! I will breakthrough!
