Studies how shown that merchandise sales can account for more than 80% of a YouTuber’s income, thus leading many people to wonder how do YouTuber’s make merch?
What most people don’t realize is that anyone can sell custom merch on youtube. It’s not just for online influencers anymore. With the right online tools, you can have an entire online store setup and ready to start selling within a few hours or less.
In this short guide, I’ll walk you through the process to creating your own online merch store, creating products, and promoting your new store.
Before you can sell any merchandise online, you’ll need an ecommerce store. An ecommerce store is where your merchandise and products will be sold from. Launch Cart is the recommended free ecommerce software tool to build your site since it was built for YouTuber’s and influencers around the globe.
Now that you have an ecommerce store created with Launch Cart, it’s time to start adding products for sale. You can use Launch Cart’s built-in product creation wizard (YouTube merch maker tool) to choose from over 300+ products to sell. Just choose a product, customize it with your own graphics, logos, or artwork images and press save. Once you saved a product, it will be listed for sale on your very own online store. Just repeat this step for adding more products to your store.
Once you’ve created your store and added products to sell, it’s time to start marketing it. You can do this by publishing an online video to youtube or posting the link to your new store on your social media accounts. We also recommend you link to your YouTube Merch Store inside the video description of every video you post.
