I started my Etsy shop back in early 2017 after listening to a podcast.
I started with selling temporary tattoos to bachelorette parties but then that stopped working for me.
The margins on the tattoos were CRAZY and sales were steadily increasing..but I was stressed.
I had to remember to check for orders everyday and ship them out quickly to customers.
This was taking up mental bandwidth that was distracting from my life and full-time job.
That’s when I discovered the concept of selling printables on Etsy.. and my life changed.
I could make the printable one time, upload it, and sell it to hundreds of customers.
..with no additional work from me.
I started selling scavenger hunts and other printable games in the same niche (bachelorette) and saw success!
I was much less stressed out and was LOVING watching the passive income come in.
I’ve made over $5,000 with just a few weeks of work total on this side hustle.
I now write and teach others how to sell digital downloads on Etsy.
