Finally a Merch podcast with a great host
I’ve listened to every other Merch podcast, and they’re good but the hosts are usually not actually smart with business, don’t understand economics, or are just plain immature and weird. I was really happy to stumble on this show the other day. Lisa is honest, intelligent and understands business. Keep up the good work.
Excellent Merch by Amazon podcast!!
Lisa, I just want to thank you for putting out your show about print on demand.
I love all the tips and reminders. Things like getting there first, keywords, etc. The biggest reminder you gave, in my opinion, was to be your own competition in a niche and upload lots of whatever is working. That has served me extremely well with PopSockets!! So thank you for that.
Today I’m planning to upload some designs to RedBubble. I have a few up there and I’m waiting for more slots on Merch, so I’m going to add to my RedBubble. I knew exactly where to come for a refresher on keywords for RedBubble. Thank you so much!
Okay, maybe this should have been an email to you instead of a review. But hopefully, someone will read this and realize how truly helpful you are. Thank you again ;)
Best wishes to everyone for a terrific Merch journey!! Diana R.
