I’m just popping in for a very quick update. I didn’t spend much time on FBA this week although did a little bit and I am now just about through my pile. Only 7 items and a bag of old My Little Ponies to go through and create listings for and then I can get the last of it out the door. I’ll do that next week and start picking up plush in the next week or two to add to my inventory. Sales on FBA are finally starting to pick up so that is good too.
With Merch I’ve been busy adding my 20 submissions every day and as of today I have 995 shirts live and for sale on Amazon. 5 more to go and then I hit the end of the tier and have to wait to tier up to 2000. Right now I’m at 734 shirts sold and I need to reach 1000 before I get bumped to 2000. I am hoping I am there by the end of October and then I will start hitting 40 uploads hard every day to capitalize on 4th Quarter.
Merch sales are getting steadier too. I don’t know if it is because I have more listings up or because the 4th quarter sales are starting to trickle in but yesterday I had my best day so far with 16 shirts sold (8 of the same Halloween design in one sale so that was very cool). Halloween is starting to sell and I even sold one Thanksgiving shirt so far.
My husbands account is starting to sell too. He is at tier 10 still and needs to get to (or sometimes just close to) 10 sales and has 3 so far. All for the same shirt. We had uploaded one to his account that I was planning to buy figuring we might as well give him the sale and it has sold two more times since then probably thanks to it getting a BSR rankining. If he can get to 25 by the end of October that would be great too!
It will be nice this weekend not to have to get up at the crack of dawn to do shirt uploads but I will still be uploading designs into drafts as much as I can until I tier up. It’s always great to have them there and ready to go. Especially since 40 uploads a day is going to take up a lot of my time!
Have a fabulous weekend!!
