Watched Sherlock? Ok, So then I will share one method of making money at home rather than blabbering much –
Make a cliche based Store
Primarily the Tshirt sales are high but stuff like posters, mugs, key rings sell very well too. Tshirt store model is already a very profitable proven venture followed by tons of e-commerce stores and Amazon sellers.
Profitability is high –
For 180 gsm, cotton T-shirts, 2-color printing you can avail at price of 170–200 INR based on supplier. (Speaking on India)
Total profit per Tshirt comes around (499–200) = 199 INR; considering worst case let’s say 150 INR profit on 200 INR investment.
How to choose a niche –
First there is no way of making money as the competition is shit too high unless you have a strong cliche.
As my blog’s viewership attains tons of views, I am likely to dig my own grave. So I am writing only one method which I follow –
I use Google Trends combined with Popcorn Time to generate these perfect niches for my weird ways of making money online. Yes, the same popcorn time which got banned. It’s the best source to tell in the shortest time that what is being watched by People and hence searched, commented and discussed in the given time frame.
So Sherlock is the first. You must make products on Sherlock franchise.
People had already started making money on this trend with even dumbest designs like shown above.
People are fighting for ad placements in Google as it seem they have found the holy grail of finding a profitable niche.
How Google Trends are useful for finding niche?
You can find optimal days when you can run such ads or prepare for such days.
You can literally see Season 1. Season 2, Season 3 and Season 4 here. Season 4 is going to break all the records to a huge extent – as you can predict with the search trend.
Google Trend result and Facebook Search result is hugely correlated.
What are the odds of your tshirt getting sold if you target 1000 Sherlock fans with the help of facebook ads which can be done in 150 INR.
Well, now I must say people had already thought this over. So the competition cost is high. How can you lower that ?
I monetize on villains!
Didn’t you watch Sherlock ? Watch
Sherlock Season 4 Episode 1 – The villain is ‘vivian norbury’
Sherlock Season 4 Episode 1 – The villain is ‘eurus holmes’
You can clearly see from above search results that ‘eurus holmes’ nailed it.
So by tomorrow make few designs on ‘eurus holmes’ – tshirt, mugs, posters and make a facebook ad campaigns targeting sherlock fans.
Post your sales in comment.
Risk can be made minimal –
a. You’re generally required to buy 20 pieces of per design and it will require around 1L investment. But if you are too mean like me then, you can make a deal with Tshirt printer companies on per sale basis. In such case, the profit will be let’s say 100 INR per 200 INR invested.
b. .com domain can be bought at 63 INR maximum. Just type “.com domain” in Google and you will get cheap deals.
Choose Inmotion Hosting. Being a web developer I’ve tried my hands on WP Engine, Hostgator.com, Hostgator.in, BlueHost and tons of others but Inmotion is the beast when it comes to customer support and they give list of virus scan every time you ask them where Hostgator charges around 125$ per scan!
Don’t pay for it. In StartSSL™, you can get 3 years free SSL certifcate. I’m using it in tons of e-commerce sites like Pacifruits; You can see Stripe is working fine with the SSL. if you’re from India, I think you will use Instamojo as payment gateway. It requires SSL certificate to run on.
Well, now you have one for free.
Optimize Further –
Are you serious? Then here are some more details that can optimize and boost your sales by 80% atleast –
Yes, competition is sheer high but with properly researched niche having no competition. You can make a killing.
Niche like ‘eurus holmes’ can be niche of so many things. I am not making tshirt out of it. I made three blog posts on my different viral sites. They are doing good.
However, My aim for this post is to show you a weird way of finding superb niches.
