ART STUDENTS: How to sell custom clothing online this summer
Unpaid or low wage summer internships got you down? We’ve got a solution for you to help you earn extra income over the summer.
Like summer 2020, summer 2021 will be different. In previous years, students might land a summer internship (unpaid or low wages) to gain experience in their field but also get a side gig to earn extra cash.
Pandemic uncertainty has limited the supply for part-time student jobs this summer but earning extra cash is not impossible with a print-on-demand drop-shipping business. Plus, it’s 100% remote.
Print-on-demand drop-shipping business models help you sell your own clothing line without holding inventory or purchasing expensive equipment. You can make money without clocking into a typical part-time job while creating your own online business.
The best part? It’s paid exposure for new and emerging artists. You’ll earn recognition and profit simultaneously!
What you’ll need to get started:
- At least one design to customize a clothing line
- A small investment to set up your store (typically around CAD$35/monthly)
- Time and commitment to promote your business
Another bonus? You’ll gain real world experience for marketing and promoting your artwork and earning income.
Once you’ve set up your online store and designed your custom clothing line, you can begin promoting your products on social media and interact with your customers to create a loyal customer base.
