Tips for selling personalized pet products online
Now that your creative juices are probably flowing let’s talk about how to position your store in the best way to skyrocket your sales. As you might know, the pet industry is a highly saturated and competitive market, so taking the right steps in your marketing efforts will help you position yourself in the online space.
1. Find your niche
As you’re thinking about the different designs you can create with our on-demand printing merch, try to find your niche. Perhaps, you focus on tropical personalized pet products, or you choose seasonal trends, for example.
Here are some design niche ideas to consider:
- Matchy-matchy: choose our pet tank tops and our human t-shirts to create adorable matching outfits.
- Monogrammed: create monogrammed designs you can apply to any of our top-selling pet products so owners can choose the one that goes with their pet’s name.
- Be funny: think like a dog, a cat, or a fish, and come up with funny quotes or words that will look hilarious in your designs–comedy and pets? What else can you ask for?
- Be unique: if you’re a creative mastermind, use that talent of yours to start designing one-of-a-king pet products everyone will want to have.
2. Use social media to ask for feedback
After creating your fabulous designs, take them to social media. Use our free mockup generator to show the world your creations and see their reactions. That’s the beauty of dropshipping. You don’t have to commit to any designs until you know your audience wants them.
Use polls, questions, and the comment sections of your social media to find out if your pet-loving audience is digging your design. Even better, bring them in the creation of your new personalized pieces, so by the time your designs are ready, they’ll be running to buy them because they’ll feel as if they’re part of the process.
3. Have giveaways
Promotion is the best way to share your new pet merch. With Printify, after you submit your designs, you can order some samples you can later use for giveaways! Not only are you making sure the product looks flawless, but you can use them to boost your social media engagement, interest, and, eventually, your sales.
Giveaways are also a great trick to expand your reach and audience. When you ask followers to share your post or tag a friend, that means your posts are seen by their followers too. It’s a more accessible and more affordable way to get your products in front of more eyes.
