How I Built A Successful Passive Income Business With Art Printables From Scratch!

From £0 to £10,000 in 18 months!

Hey, I’m Laura Dezonie and I help budding online entrepreneurs find ways to build fun, achieveable and super profitable online ‘passive income’ streams that help them jump-start their way to financial freedom on my blog!

For the last 18 months I’ve been building a successful art print business that now consistently brings me in ‘passive’ income each month and has grown to include physical drop-ship art prints that I now sell on Amazon aswell!

In just over a year i’ve made over £10,000+ from selling art prints online using a simple but super effective sales funnel that runs on auto-pilot to bring me passive income each and every month.

*Sounds pretty smooth huh!*

My first 6 months! (£22 revenue)-2.jpg

* I receive Etsy payments that flow into my bank account each week to help me pay my bills, grow my savings and put towards my financial future!*


I love being the happy owner of a low maintenance online business that brings me in consistent passive income each and every month!

I truly thank my past self everyday for having the courage to step out of my comfort zone and create it so that I can enjoy the benefits of it now.

My successful art printable Etsy shop is my own personal proof that I CAN achieve my passive income goals, I CAN learn the skills it takes to make money online and that i’m doing something truly awesome for my financial future that will support me and my loved ones in the long run.

And creating it has been a life-changing journey that’s shifted my mindset and set me on a non-stop full steam ahead path to financial freedom!

But I want to be 100% honest with you here for a sec…

When I ‘started’ my little passive income journey just over 18 months ago, things were no where near as easy as they now sound!

For the first 6 months after I set-up my art printable business I was stuck in an endless rut of trying everything and anything I possibly could to grow my Etsy traffic and make art printable sales with literally ZERO results!

These Were The Results Of All My Hardwork

Screen Shot 2018-10-14 at 4.42.42 PM.png

I spent way too much of my time scouring the internet for any hint of guidance on how to build a successful Etsy businesssell art printables and make passive income online and I went round and round in circles madly trying random tricks, hacks and ‘miracle solutions’ that in the end just took up more and more of my precious time but did NOTHING to improve my passive income results!

After 6 long and devastating months of trying to make more than a handful of art printable sales in my failing Etsy shop, I was facing the hugely disappointing question of whether I should give up my passive income goals and accept that ‘I’ just couldn’t make it work.

I was burnt out, broke and utterly ashamed to admit my passive income dreams might just be unachievable like everyone else thought!

giphy-74.gif

"Ohh yes, this was me in my little home office late at night!"

I can’t even tell you how low I felt 6 months in from pursing my online income goals.

And honestly I never want you to have to feel that overworked, overwhelmed and disappointed whilst pursuing yours!

I remember, I pretty much stayed up all night on that rubbish day when I nearly let go of my passive income dreams for good.

I stepped away from my struggling Etsy shop, my empty bank account and all the blogs and videos i’de gathered that promised me Etsy success if I just did this ONE thing that all the Top Sellers did!

And I really took a clear look at what the heck I was doing and WHY I just wasn’t seeing the results that everyone else seemed to achieve overnight!

Ok lets be really honest here, because we’re here to build a real achievable passive income stream that actually WORKS 

When I take a cold, hard and realistic look back at everything I was doing in the first 6 months of growing my art printable Etsy shop, it’s pretty easy to see exactly where I was going wrong.

I spend 70% of my spare time (that SHOULD of been focused on scaling my online business), searching tirelessly over the internet for tips, tricks and hacks that I believed would spontaneously sky-rocket my Etsy business to success and the other 30% haphazardly applying them with no focus, no forethought and zero understanding of HOW any of these ‘miracle solutions’ were meant to work together to grow my shop!

Well I want to tell you the TRUTH right here and now…

There is no ONE miracle hack out there that’s going to suddenly give you a successful profitable art printable business that works on auto-pilot to make passive income each month!

You’ll never find it, it doesn’t exist… and it’s totally wasting your time to look!

giphy-75.gif

"I really hope your reaction to this 'startling' news is not as CRAZY as this!"

What really causes an online passive income business (of any kind) to grow and flourish instead of flip and flop and just flail about…

Is if it’s creator uses a clear, concise step by step method to put in place ALL of the essential elements that are needed to set it up, drive in traffic, make sales and have it run on auto-pilot so it has everything it needs to support itself and grow!

Once I realized that I needed to stop fogging my mind up with random ‘tricks’ that other Etsy sellers had used (within a whole structure) to reach their Etsy success and trying to implement them in my own shop with NO understanding of what they would do.

I sat down, took out a paper and pen and started to layout EVERYTHING my Etsy shop would need to attract the RIGHT kind of customers and really make sales!

I then went right back to the drawing board, ripped my existing Etsy shop apart and started all over again following a strategic and step-by-step process to build a low maintenance art printable business that’s customer focused, SEO ready and equipped with awesome traffic funnels that bring me sales on auto-pilot each month!

In just 12 months of taking this new approach, I built my little art printable business to levels far beyond what I envisioned when I started out.

Screen Shot 2018-10-14 at 5.37.51 PM.png

Now in 2018!

Screen Shot 2018-10-14 at 6.28.08 PM.png

I’ve sold over 670+ prints on Etsy, expanded to drop-ship physical products, opened an Amazon shop and made over £10,000+ in passive income from sales.

I’ve most importantly learned some awesome life-changing online business skills that I can carry with me into any other online business that I want to pursue, and i’ve got the confidence in myself to go out and expand my passive income GOALS knowing I will succeed!

And it’s truly been worth all the time and effort I put in to make it work!


What Having A Passive Income Etsy Shop Looks Like!

  • Imagine if you had an online business that made you £100’s/£1000’s in passive incomeeach and every month.

  • Imagine if you had a successful Etsy business that you could scale to make you as much monthly income as you want.

  • Imagine if you could finally gain the skills and confidence to know that you’re passive income goals were 'achievable' and worth all your effort after all.

  • And imagine how amazing it would feel to know that ‘you’ve’ created an income stream that will support you and your financial future year in, year out!

I know what it’s like to go it alone and try to piece together a rickety patchwork Etsy shop that’s missing HUGE holes in it’s foundations which causes it to buckle every time.

It’s not fun, it’s not effective and it’s such an unnecessary energy and time suck when you should be using your precious hours to set-up an online business that REALLY WORKS!

I never want anyone to go through the disappointment and frustration that I had to when I tried to go it alone for the first 6 months.

I want you to have clear steps to take, a proven strategy to follow and an awesome resource that you can visit again and again as your business grows and flourishes…

So that you never feel stressed, overwhelmed or unfocused as you build your successful Etsy shop from the ground up!

This is why I created the Art Printables On Etsy Course!

So You Can...

•Discover the REAL strategy for creating a successful art printable business

• Understand EXACTLY why applying ‘miracle hacks’ to grow your Etsy business NEVER works!

Hi guys,

So in this video I really want to talk to you about my next BIG passive income goal that i'm getting prepped to pursue in 2019!

Growing my blog and my blogging income!

I'm pretty new to blogging and although I had evaknows.com for several months now, I haven't had the time and focus to really push her to succeed in 2018 and see what she can do.

That's why i'm starting to prep myself and get super ready to give her my time and attention in 2019 so I can work at growing my blogging income and I can explore different ways of scaling and monetizing my little blog platform to make the very best of what i've already built.

I've done 1 or 2 small videos around my blogging process on my Youtube channel over the last year but now I want to try and commit to creating at least 1 blog related video each and every month to go along with my passive income building content.

That's because I promised you guys that I would share with you BIG steps that i'm taking to create and expand my passive income pot and as blogging has become more and more of a key focus along my journey I really want to share all my resources, helpful tips and progress with you too.

I hope that you'll enjoy this monthly series and if you're thinking about creating (or scaling) your blog in 2019 that these videos will be of some help to you in achieving your own goals!

I'm so excited to start my blogging journey with you guys on my Youtube channel, my blog and on my email list and I can't wait to see what awesome blog content we all come up with as we go along!

Have fun on your blog journey guys and definitely let me know how you're getting on!

how to make passive income on Etsy: Up-coming eCourse!

5.jpg

🎉If You'd like to join my 'Art Printables On Etsy' Course WAITING LIST then join here!

“Course Update: I've actually pushed the launch date back to the 1st November as i'm adding tons MORE to the course right now, I really want to give you guys SERIOUS bang for your buck here! 😊

Hey guys, 

So in this video I wanted to talk to you about my awesome upcoming Ecourse which will help you set up an awesome low-maintenance Art Printable business on Etsy. 

It will also teach you exactly how to start building your passive income pot using a simple and straight forward step-by-step method that you can use to start making £100's and then eventually £1000's in passive income from your Etsy shop!

When I started my passive income journey I had no more than £100 available to grow and expand my first passive income business so I searched frantically for a simple and effective way to start making money online and eventually I decided to give an Art Printable Etsy business a try!

With little to ZERO experience in creating art printables and even less in understanding how to set-up and scale a passive income business, I set to work making continuous progress and errors until I finally grew my Art Printable business to bring in a few £100 a month.

I can't tell you how much time and energy it took for me to reach that FIRST milestone simply because I was trying to do learn 'EVERYTHING' from free resources and tit bits I could find on the internet.

Something I now know makes it 100x harder than following a simple step-by-step plan that's already laid out!

It wasn't until I finally relented and sourced an "Etsy for Beginners" course and started to apply the many essential elements that I had no idea I NEEDED to include in my business that I was quickly able to sky rocket my low-maintenance income to reach my first £1000+ month!

And that is when I realized the beauty of following a step-by-step strategy laid out by someone who's already reached where I want to be!

giphy-56.gif

Someone please, Just show me the right way to go!

I now consistently make between £700 /£1000 per month in my 'spare time' simply by maintaining my passive income Art Print business for just a few hours per month

I can't tell you how amazing it feels to know that you're making money every day even whilst you sleep, whilst you work on other projects or even whilst you're out living your life!

And what's more now that I've finally reached the milestone I'm at now and I feel confident and knowledgeable on how to set up and structure a passive income business I'm able to repeat the process again and again, scaling my online income streams all from the comfort of my own home.

And it all started with my humble but successful Art Printable Etsy shop!

With the knowledge I have now I could much more easily set-up an Art Printable business in a 1/4 of the time it took me to do it when I started out on my own and that's why I really want to share ALL my knowledge and processes with you, so that you can easily create and scale your own passive income in a fraction of the time it took me to grow!

Trust me this method of building your first passive income stream is PERFECT for absolute beginners because it not only teaches you ALL the skills and essential elements you need to set-up and grow a successful Etsy shop...

BUT...

It also allows you to do it at your own pace, in a completely beginner friendly environment (e.g. Etsy Marketplace) with all the support and step-by-step guidance you'll need to create your first passive income stream in just a few months!

Now i'm not going to pretend that you don't have to put the hard work in UPFRONT (p.s and don't believe anyone who tries to tell you otherwise).

Like I say repeatedly on my blog "Passive income isn't easy income" and it takes time, focus and persistence to set-up and scale your Etsy business before you can step back and start watching passive income flowing into your Etsy account...

BUT I promise you it can easily be done, and if you follow each step in my 'Art Printables on Etsy course' and implement all the essential strategies I show you then you'll see passive income start to flow into your bank account within the first few months!

That's amazing PASSIVE income that you can start bringing into your life on a monthly basis just from your side hustle!

Money that you can put towards paying your bills, saving for a big investment such as a new house or alternatively building growing additional passive income streams that would of been previously unobtainable because they were too big of an investment.

This really is an amazing LIFE-CHANGING course for any passive income newbie who truly wants to start pushing for a strong financial future full of freedom and choice!

Creating an Art Printable business is really a super effective way to scale your passive income as long as you're willing to put in the work upfront and put in place all of the key elements needed to ensure it's success!

Well Hello Guys, 

So in this video I'm going to be talking about a topic that I'm super passionate about and a subject that may be rather specific to my viewers but also totally RELEVANT if you're looking to create passive income online.

I've been the proud owner of an Art Printable Etsy shop for the past 2 years and in the last 7 months I was also able to take that awesome business and include drop-ship Art prints simply by taking a few more steps to easily transform my existing art printables into physical products.

Although for the first 6 months of my Etsy shop journey I truly struggled to understand exactly what my shop needed in order to drive traffic, attract customers and grow my low-maintenance business...

giphy-48.gif

Ohh yes lady, that sh*t went straight over my head too!

ONCE I started really buckling down and putting in the time, energy and focus to learn everything I could about creating a successful Etsy shop I began to see my sales rise from 5, 50, 100 to 600+ sales in the course of just a year and a half, all in my spare time!

I can't tell you how awesome it feels to see sales and passive income rolling into your Etsy shop even when you're busy getting on with other things you love such as working on creating another passive income stream, spending time with your friends and loved ones or simply grabbing a few extra hours for yourself.

It's also pretty amazing to know that you've gained some seriously awesome skills from your Art Printable business that you can use over and over again to grow your passive income pot in a whole host of new ways that would of been almost impossible to grasp before.

That's why in this video I want to talk in depth about 5 awesome ESSENTIAL elements that you'll need to ensure your digital download Etsy shop is strong, efficient and successful and I really want to share them with you guys here on YouTube just incase you're in the process of setting up or growing your own Art Printable or Digital download Etsy business and you're looking for a little help.

Like I said I'm by no means the biggest or best full time seller on Etsy but I'm truly proud of how I've managed to set up successful traffic and sales driving systems and create an Art Printable Etsy shop that has made me £1000's in low maintenance income over the past year and a half and that now only takes me a few hours a month to maintain!

I know how important it is for so many of my amazing readers and video watchers to learn EXACT actionable strategies to create low maintenance and passive income streams online, not just lip service from people telling what you COULD do in an endless list of "50 passive income businesses you 'could' start now" in which you receive  ZERO guidance and help in actually getting any of them up and running and what's more the person speaking has NEVER created any of them themselves.

Believe me i've seen enough people gossiping about how to create a passive income stream that have NEVER EVEN TRIED any of the methods they claim you can make £100's and £1000's from!!!

That's why I personally love to talk to you guys about my journey with growing my Art Print online business that now constantly supports me and helps me grow my online passive money pot so that you have the option to learn from my personal successes and mistakes in what it TRULY takes to build a passive income stream from scratch!

Ohh yes, we get up close and personal on my videos and on my blog evaknows.com

And hopefully using my first hand knowledge you'll be able to get your own REAL Etsy business up and running and bringing you in 'consistent' passive income in a matter of months rather than years! 

I hope you enjoy watching the video guys and definitely don't forget to sign up for the "Art Printables on Etsy course" if you're really ready to create your first passive income stream from SCRATCH!

Hi Guys,

So in this video I wanted to talk to you about a completely new online income stream i'm currently focusing on and that i'm SUPER passionate about... Creating my Very First Ecourse!!

For the last few months i've been quietly (cough cough) or not so quietly working away at my latest project of creating my very first Ecourse for my blog evaknows.com.

I'm so passionate and motivated about it right now and as I have always promised my awesome YouTube watchers and my blog followers that i'll always keep you in the loop along my online income journey, then I just knew I had to share this video with you on how i'm getting on prepping and creating my first Ecourse!

I have to admit when I first decided to start work on my course I was TERRIFIED!!

I had no idea where to start, what a course involved and how I was going to get across EVERYTHING I wanted to teach in a coherent manor to my amazing future course takers...

SO WHAT DID I DO?

I did what any over enthusiastic girlboss does and researched the heck out of "how to create your first course online?".

giphy-45.gif

I was probably a touch faster than this at typing! lol

I was literally scouring the internet for any super relevant and helpful resources I could find to make the journey as 'easy' as I possibly could.

After a loooonnnggg and super overwhelming search I stumbled across a few absolutely kick-ass tools and resources that I just had to mention to any of you guys if you're in the same position as me and starting out on your first Ecourse creation journey!

A few months back I signed up for a Free Teachable account and started practicing creating a few free online mini courses just to get used to how it all worked and make doubly sure that I enjoyed using the platform... Safe to say I LOVED IT!

Then once I decided to get super focused and create my very first paid course I did what I personally recommend almost anyone who's completely new to creating an Ecourse does, I went in search of someone who had a proven and strong track record for successfully achieving my goal and as awesome luck would have it at that exact time one of my absolute favorite bloggers and someone i've been following and listening to for over a year released her amazing course on how to create your own Ecourse from scratch - It's called Course By Numbers.

I bit the bullet and purchased her course and within the first few hours of watching and reading I already felt like I knew exactly what I needed to focus on (scarily not the things I originally thought I needed to do) which has literally saved me from spending days and probably weeks of wasting my time on pointless tasks that never needed to be done in the first place.

I've also discovered how to properly lay out my course, what to include, how to warm my audience up for my first launch in advance and literally all the ESSENTIAL elements that go with not only creating a course but actually 'launching' it as well... 

Something that I will shyly admit to you guys (as I always like to be brutally honest about my online journey) I hadn't realized I needed to have in place well in advance!

Anyway long story short I just wanted to create this video to recommend a few amazing resources that I'm currently using to create my FIRST online course. I have always promised to take you along my passive income journey every step of the way so I just wanted to keep you updated with what i'm up to now and hopefully give any of you guys a couple of super helpful resources if you're also working on creating your own online course and need a little help!

I will of course keep you updated on my first Online Course journey as I go along lovelies, as I'm hoping I will learn some super helpful do's and dont's along the way that I will be able to share with you to make your own path to creating a course that little bit easier (if that's something you'd like to do to of course) lol.

WHY DO YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR MINDSET TO MAKE PASSIVE INCOME?

Hi guys,

So in this video I wanted to talk to you about 5 mindset changes I had to make when I started out on my financial freedom journey!

Like I think most people, I came from a social economic background that's taught me that in order to earn money, I have to hand over my time, skills and energy each and every month by trading "myself in" for my monthly income!

 

Ohh yes, I now realize what a crappy trade that was!!!

 

But once I discovered the power and freedom that can come from building 'passive' income streams and creating assets that can earn money for me even as I sleep, I began to realize that I'de been hardwired to 'AVOID' my own financial freedom and instead keep myself in the constantly dangerous situation of having *ME* as my 'ONLY' financial Asset and Source of Income!! 

 I know I like to put pressure on myself but damn!

I know I like to put pressure on myself... but damn!

I'm not going to lie, it's taken me time and required me to drastically improve my financial education and understanding to really shift my mindset towards focusing on slowly building up my assets rather than constantly scrambling to create more and more 'active' income, but once you start to see the drastic difference building 'passive income' can make to your financial situation you'll never look back!

In this video I want to talk to you about 5 Essential Mindset Shifts I think you'll either need to experience or you'll already be experiencing if you're on your passive income journey and why it's super important that you work towards expanding your mindset when it comes to building sustainable income streams that will help you reach your financial freedom goals in the long run!

Lets talk about the bigger picture -

why does having passive income even matter?

Right now my blog is focused on helping you take practical steps to 'starting' your financial freedom journey because I totally know how frustrating it can be to be ready to jump in, get your head down and start scaling your own pot of passive income but have absolutely no clue how or where to 'start' building your FIRST passive income streams especially if you're completely new to the subject!

However, I also want every single one of my awesome blog readers to truly understand that becoming financially free and completely self-reliant takes alot more personal growth and education then simply setting up a bunch of low-input online business or investing in the stock market...

It's takes a complete mindset shift to learn how money REALLY works, what you should REALLY be doing to make the most out of every penny you earn and most importantly WHY you need to ensure that you're completely financially savvy and competent even if it's a subject that you've never taken SERIOUSLY before!

Why am I so serious about this??

My dream is to help as many awesome women (and men of course) as I possibly can gain a healthy, strong and completely accurate understanding of personal money management so that I can prevent as many amazing individuals as possible from falling into the soul destroying trap of handing over their precious time, their energy and lets be honest the most special years of their life to endlessly work for the worst of all bosses - money itself!  

As Ann Wilson and so many other amazing financially free individuals often say - "Money can be a great servant but it's a terrible leader!" 

That's why, on Evaknows I want to start sharing with you the BIGGER PICTURE of the financial freedom journey itself and why it's so important not to let money lead the way in your life!

Over the last 2 years i've been climbing my own personal journey to financial freedom and I have become overwhelmingly aware of how much I let myself (through lack of financial education) become led and controlled by the myth that I had to hand over 'me' each and every day to 'earn' money to support my lifestyle.

No one had sat me down and told me there was another way! No one explained anything about assets, liabilites, expenses and how I was meant to go about building a financial future that I could truly love and enjoy... 

A future in which money wasn't my boss/leader but instead was my servant!...

(This is something I would love to start including in my blog in the next few months if you guys would be interested in me expanding my topics to talk more about my own experience with 'personal money management' and how i'm putting processes and steps in place to ensure that every drop of passive and active income I make, I keep working for me to either create more assets or I use to help build a rich juicy lifestyle I love!)    

...So for the past 2 years whilst I was building my passive income I also started my own 'mini personal school of financial education' and i've read, watched, researched and applied as much knowledge as I possibly can about money management to my passive income journey to ensure i'm doing to the very best I can to create a financial future I'm proud of!

That's why once you make the amazing decision to get started on your passive income journey, I also think it's super essential to get truly educated on not only the right ways to make money to create your financial freedom but I also think it's super duper important to get clued up on the realities of personal money management and how exactly you should be building the RIGHT 'cash-flow' to help you reach your financial freedom 100 x faster.

It didn't take me long on my own journey to realize that i'de only touched the tip of the iceburg when it came to my financial literacy when I decided to start building passive income and I soon uncovered a whole world of amazing financial knowledge once I really began taking my money and my future seriously.

Below i've listed just 2 absolutely amazing 'introductory' financial education books that have really helped me gain insight into the huge mistakes I was making with my own money and my cash-flow.

I personally think they're definately worth checking out if you're looking for 2 ultra financially savvy authors to help guide you in the right direction when it comes to gaining your financial freedom.

As I mentioned above it's so essential to encourage your mind to look at the bigger picture when it comes to your overall financial situation before you dive right in and start building your own passive income businesses, investing in the stock market or anything else you decide to give a try...

Why??

Simply because before you're about to embark on possibly one of the most long, tedious, focused, amazing, rewarding and most importantly profitable personal growth journeys of your life (building the financial future you dream of through passive income) and to it right I personally think you need to have everything in place mentally to not only remain persistant in your BIG goals over the years to come but also to ensure you are doing everything you possibly can to  MAKE THE MOST of every penny of income that you create along the way.

In one of my absolute favorite money management books Ann Wilson - The Wealth Chef, she articulately breaks down not only the right way to create and scale your income but she also goes way more depth then I possibly can in this blog post into the BEST ways for you to utlilize every penny of passive and active income you earn to help you reach your financial freedom goals so much faster. 

If you're a complete newbie to building assets and creating wealth then I personally think The Wealth Chef is an amazing book to help broaden your mind and bust some of the worst myths about money management - I'm not going to lie I read this book from cover to cover in 2 days and it still sits on my bedside table now! 

I also truly love Tony Robbins book - UNSHAKEABLE and think it's an awesome read to inspire you to think bigger, broader and most likely out of your comfort zone as it's centered around the cold hard myth busting truth that you actually can't 'actively earn' your way to FINANCIAL FREEDOM!

I've read a number of Tony Robbins books and personally think this is my favorite by far!

As much as I love the concept of improving your mindset in general when it comes to believing in yourself, achieving happiness and generally becoming a more content person as a lot of Tony Robbins books centre around, in truth I'm not really one for reading a book cover to cover if there isn't alot of PRACTICAL guidance and advice on how exactly i'm going to achieve my BIG goals so that I can actually really apply them in the physical world!

Ohh yes, as much as I love motivation, inspiration and all things intangible - I studied Biological Science for 4 years and because of that i'm one heck of a PRACTICAL kind of girl!

The geek inside me likes a whole lot of methodology and step by step guidance on exactly what it's going to take to achieve my financial goals and I personally found UNSHAKABLE an awesome resource to help me shift my mindset to the world of investing and using the money I earn to help enhance my financial future instead of letting it gather dust in a low income saving account or simply spending it away!      

When I sat down and started reading UNSHAKEABLE I personally found so much practical value and financial information crammed into the pages and this book alongside the Wealth Chef has helped me scale my mindset and opened my eyes to so many false beliefs I've carried around with me about not only how I should be 'earning' my money but also what I should be doing with it once it hits my bank account!   

 

MY FAVORITE MONEY MANAGEMENT BOOKS:
 

📚 ANN WILSON: The Wealth Chef - How To Make your Money Work Harder, So You Don't Have To!

📚 TONY ROBBINS: Unshakeable: Your Guide to Financial Freedom through investing! 

 

So there you have it 3 hopefully helpful resources to guide you at least a little closer to your goals on your own financial freedom path.

I hope you enjoyed the video and defiantly share it with anyone else who's also working on their own financial situation if you think it can help them at all.

I truly welcome anyone on my blog no matter their current financial situation or were they're at in their own passive income journey - the more amazing like minded women and men here the better ;)    

Thankyou so much guys for taking the time and energy to read my blog post and watch the video.

It truly means so much to me that so many of you are as motivated and inspired as I am to build a better financial future for yourself and you're checking in with me from time to time to listen and read about my personal journey to improve my financial situation!

I wish you so much luck in achieving your own financial freedom goals...

You got this girl, go get the financial future you want and deserve! 

See you in the next blog post and on the Youtube channel - Evaknows!

Below i've added a wealth of hopefully super helpful resources for you to check out if selling digital downloads sounds like something you'd like to do.

Don't forget to take advantage of as much of the information available online as you can around this subject before you dive in.

Before I really started making money with digital art printables on Etsy I sat down, did my homework and worked out a strong step-by-step strategy to achieve my Etsy shop goals and I really recommend you do the same too!

I hope that at least some of these resources can help you with whichever digital download you fancy giving a try and don't forget although creating an Etsy shop can be a good way to make extra income, I also want you to remember that making and selling digital downloads online should also be FUN!!

RESOURCES TO HELP CREATE DIGITAL DOWNLOAD PRODUCTS:

 

In this section i've added a few key resources that I personally think are vital for any budding digital download Etsy seller including a great place to source your clipart, fonts and graphic elements if you're interested in creating goodies such as art printables, cv templates, social media packs etc plus two awesome online (beginner friendly) graphic design programs you can use to create your gorgeous digital products and my absolute FAVOURITE Etsy Success program that helped my own Etsy shop sky-rocket from making next to nothing to bringing me in a small full-time income (£1000+) per month! 

  

CREATIVE MARKET: FOR COMMERCIAL LICENSE ARTWORK AND MOCKUPS!

I absolutely love creative market. From when I first started out to where I am now I credit this platform for about 60% of all the artwork, mockups and flatlays I use to create and display ALL the products I sell in my store.

I would love to write a full blown article all about this awesome website detailing exactly how I use it to create the most beautiful digital downloads that literally sell themselves, so let me know if any of you would be interested in that and I will? 

Powered by Creative Market

**Check out creative market for yourself and download these gorgeous designer artworks available for FREE on the creative market platform - make sure to always check the license that every graphic design product comes with just to check if you can use it in your commercial products or not!

 

The best thing about creative market is quite simply that its the ultimate one stop shop for everything a girl needs to create out of this world digital products, social media graphics, website backdrops and so much more!

I personally love to use this platform to source gorgeous clipart and fonts for my art printables and those interested in creating social media packs, cv templates, printable invitations, printables games etc will find creative market super handy to grab gorgeous commercial use designs to add detail and style to your products.

If you're not a natural born artist or don't want to spend all your super valuable work time drawing mediocre stick figures that you know would never sell online then it's best to just leave this part of the product process to the experts.

In a future post I will write a step by step guide on how I create my digital downloads using other peoples artwork and how majorly fun it is to get creative and use their stunning illustrations and fonts legally to create artwork, cards or templates covers to sell.

But for now if you're new to creating digital products I would suggest taking a good look at Creative Market not only when you're ready to start creating your amazing products but also as a regular inspirational hotspot to get your creative juices going as you research what to sell.

Try out these gorgeous graphic freebies and really get the juices flowing with ideas on what digital products you could potentially create in your store to help build your passive income - I love finding and sharing gorgeous FREEBIES with you guys!

 

PICMONKEY: GREAT FOR DIGITAL PRODUCTS AND SOCIAL MEDIA!

When it comes to creating my digital download products I have to say I have experimented with both Picmonkey and Canva over the last 2 years.

I absolutely adore both so this paragraph is not going to be a tear them apart comparison. The one thing I will say that steered me a little more towards Picmonkey in the beginning of my passive income journey is it's insanely easy to use platform for complete graphic design beginners and the fact that within seconds you can create absolutely beautiful digital downloads with little to no previous graphic knowledge.

There design layout is super simple and just like Canva they have absolutely beautiful templates you can play around with to create most of your digital and printable products.   

Now 2 years down the line I still love to use a mixture of the two platforms to come up with all my designs.

I've created art prints, digital cards, social media posts, digital planners, screensavers, phone backgrounds, ebook covers and even 90% of my blog graphics and downloads on these 2 graphic websites and trust me i've had zero professional training when it comes to design.

If you're looking for somewhere to start creating your own amazing digital downloads to sell then I would definately recommend you check out Picmonkey.

If you're serious about building passive income from an online store or blog you won't be disappointed with what you can achieve on this platform alone! 

I'll drop your off on the Picmonkey Homepage right here if you want to see what this amazing website has to offer you.

I personally recommend trying out Picmonkey first if you're a complete graphic novice not only because it's a touch simpler than Canva but also because they have great tutorials and blog articles stuffed full of super helpful advice and guidance to improve your design know-how that helped me out when I had no idea what to do! 

I will be creating way more posts on all the tips and tricks i've learned to create stunning ultra sellable downloads for my shops in the future but for now I just wanted to mention this amazing resource if you guys want to try them out.

 

4. CANVA: A LITTLE MORE ADVANCED GRAPHIC DESIGN!

I adore Canva not only because it's fairly easy to use (granted after the first few attempts) but mostly because they provide an astounding wealth of design templates for you to play with for almost every kind of graphic you could want.

For example if you need inspiration for a CV template or social media layout they have you covered and they have so many tools and processes you can easily use to create gorgeous digital downloads of your own. 

(Note: Never simply copy one of their templates and sell it as your own on another platform - this could wind you in serious trouble).

However as long as you stick to creating original pieces such as unique art printables or digital planner pages with commercial use imagery and fonts you've purchased form places like Creative Market you're good to use this killer platform to create stunning designs you can sell in your own Etsy shop!

If you want to try Canva out for yourself then here's a link to their website. 

I'll drop you off on their homepage so you can have a good old nose and discover everything they have to offer on their amazing platform!

Note: There are also much more detailed and advanced programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator that are excellent for people confident in graphic design! 

 

 

Subscriber tribe: THE PERFECT PLACE TO START! 

There is no other reason for me to put this course at the top of my list except for the fact that this program quite literally helped me start and build my online business from nothing to the little powerhouse it is today that makes me my full time income. I promise you i'm not giving Jenni Waldrop's course too much credit. I discovered this online academy quite literally by accident about 3 months into my online seller journey at the time when I had almost completely given up on the idea of building passive income. Everything online seemed so confussing and the few strides I managed to make towards building my online business kept turning out to be wrong and had to be corrected over and over thus I was getting nowhere fast. 

Then I stumbled upon the Subscriber Tribe course and plucking up all my courage I made the first (and best) decision I could of possibly made for my business and my income.

...I enrolled!

Within a few weeks following Jenni's advice and course modules I quite literally turned my business around. Even now I know that if I hadn't took my future into my own hands that day and decided to learn about online business the right way on this course I wouldn't be here talking about my success now.

That's why I want to share this course with you guys not because I want you to sign up but because I really want you to see that making a decisive descision and getting the help you need in the beginning is the most important step to building a strong profitable business online. 

Subscriber Tribe is chocked full of priceless advice, guidance and easy to follow modules that carefully guide you through the maze of creating online income.

I personally love her friendly warm writing style, her amazing how-to videos and the fact that she takes so much time to interact with the group. From facebook lives where you can ask her any question you want to the group page where you can chat with so many other like minded people working hard to build there own online income.  

If you're interested in taking a look at Etsy Academy then this is a link to their homepage. 

Jenni also has tons of free articles on her blog to help you scale your Etsy Income and grow your Etsy shop in no time!

Now lets talk specific Digital downloads you can have fun creating and selling on Etsy (+ other online platforms such as Creative Market)...

 

12 AWESOME DIGITAL PRODUCTS YOU CAN CREATE AND SELL ON ETSY:

 

1. ART PRINTABLES

Art printables are digital downloadable versions of art designs you can sell online to a customer and they can download and print out themselves.

Art prints can be super fun and creative to make.

Personally I love this type of passive income product simply because with a little graphic know-how (i'm talking basic) and a great design website like Canva or Picmonkey you can create absolutely stunning digital prints that you can share and sell in an online shop.

2. PLANNER / ORGANIZER TEMPLATES

If you love organization and you fancy helping your fellow entrepreneurs or busy working families keep track of their hectic day to days then why not learn to create super helpful planner pages or organization worksheets and workbooks that your customers can download and print out at home.

I love to try designing useful planner sheets for myself (although they're no where near the quality i'm sure a dedicated digital planner Etsy shop can create) but if you're like me and enjoy planning ahead then why not use some of that forethought and invest your organization skills into your passive income journey. 

Wedding planners, digital journals and meal prep worksheets are just a few niches you could venture into but truly the list of options remains endless as more and more people are investing there time and pennies into organizing their hectic lifestyles. 

There are a wealth of template ideas on Canva and Picmonkey to help you create beautiful, unique and most importantly helpful organizational sheets and workbooks your customers can purchase form you and download themselves.

If you're looking for more inspiration and guidance on this particular digital download then definitely check out these resources.

3. DOWNLOADABLE CARDS

Creating digital download cards can be such a fun way to spend a few hours of your free time. Places like Etsy.com make it super easy for you to upload your card designs onto their platform and start selling to their audience in just a few days.

From season greetings cards, inspirational cards and housewarming cards to wedding and bridesmaid request cards there's a whole host of niches and occasions you can cater for.

All you need to do is get to grips with an easy to use design platform such as Picmonkey or Canva (or Photoshop for the more advanced) to start creating these fun and crafty digital download products.

 

4. PRINTABLE STICKERS

Do you love using printable stickers in your own home for journalling, d.i.y projects or for just rewarding the kids? Then you might also enjoy learning how to create your very own designs and even better discovering how you can sell them on places like Etsy and Creative Market for passive income. I love using digital download stickers in my day planner and in the future I will definately be looking further into adding these super fun products into my own Etsy shop. As I don't specialize in this form of digital download myself I've compiled a small collection of resources to help you learn more if you think digital stickers could be a fun way for you to start earning passive income on Etsy.

Here's a super helpful video tutorial from Nicole Elizabeth onHow to Make Planner/Bullet Journal Stickers - Step by Step Guide

This awesome in-depth article from Nicole Elizabeth helps explain digital stickers in a clear and easy to follow context... including startup costs, common sticker sizes and so much more How to Make Planner Stickers to Sell on Etsy  

 

5. PRINTABLE INVITATIONS

Printable invitations to all sorts of events and occasions can make excellent 'passive income' products you can upload once and sell again and again. Birthday invitations, wedding invitations, baby showers and holiday party invitation templates are just some niches you can use to create beautiful invitation designs to sell on marketplace platforms or your own websites. 

Downloadable invitations can be a super easy and fun digital product that anyone can learn to create and again websites such as Canva and Picmonkey and design programs like Photoshop and Illustrator make the design process so much easier for graphic design beginners and intermediates.

For tons of inspiration and to help you see the kinds of fun and elegant designs other have created in this niche then browse some printable invitations here on Etsy.com

 

6. DOWNLOADABLE GAMES, COLOURING PAGES AND CHILDREN'S PRINTABLES

Printable games and coloring books have been skyrocketing in popularity and demand on marketplace platforms such as Etsy.com. From children themed colouring pages to hen night and baby shower downloadable party games there's a wealth of different printable ideas you can come up with to entertain your audience and grow your passive income. 

Using websites like Canva and Picmonkey its now easier than ever to get creative and design your own downloadable games, quizzes and colouring pages you can easily sell in your online shop. Just like art printables and greeting cards you may have to create quite a few variations and options for your customers to choose from in order to start earning a good income from this type of passive income product. But if you enjoy the process and grow your shop overtime there's no limit to money you can make from your online stores. 

 

7. GRAPHIC ELEMENTS - E.G. CLIPART / VECTORS

If you have a talent for drawing or graphic design then this really could be your ideal niche to create gorgeous 'passive income' products. I personally couldn't be without all the amazing artists I buy from who allow me to use their designs for my own digital products. If you have a skill for art and you're willing to learn how to upload and promote your work then selling your artwork as vectors or clipart that others can use on their branding, commercial products or social media graphics can be a great way to make money from your talent. 

This again can be quite a competitive sector particularly on the most popular digital marketplaces such as Creative Market and Etsy.com. Uploading truly beautiful high resolution designs and clearly stating your terms of use with each clipart package you sell is essential to not only help build loyalty and trust with your customers but also to prevent copyright issues creeping up through accidental (and not so accidental) miss-use of your work.  

If you're serious and passionate about creating art then designing gorgeous graphics can be a great way to express yourself and make money over and over for your digital artwork however this method can vary greatly in start up costs depending on what type of design equipment you want to use to create your product (e.g. scanning your hand-drawings onto your computer (relatively inexpensive method) or using detailed illustration equipment and programs to create digital artwork on places like photoshop (costs can ratchet up using this method) but at the end of the day it's totally up to you and how much you're ready and able to invest in your business at the start!

8. STOCK PHOTOS

Do you love photography?? Do you have a keen eye and a knack for styling that means your images always stand out from the crowd??

Then creating stock photos may be an excellent way for you to dip your toes into the world of passive income.

Stock photography is again a super competitive game and getting your images noticed amongst the wealth of free imagery out there can be a grueling task but with a little determination and focus on building your portfolio and brand you could start earning passive income from stock photography in a few months.

Again I want to reiterate that stock photography is a competitive game so do your homework on the best niches, photography websites and marketing techniques to jump start your earning potential selling stock photos.

8B. PRODUCT MOCKUP PHOTOS

Following with the trend of photography I just wanted to mention a smaller more niche style of imagery that truly appeals to small business owners and entrepreneurs. 

If you're handy with a camera and you know how to create beautiful photo layouts then Product Mockups could be a really lucrative way for you to make passive income!

 Product mockups are photos that help businesses or online shop owners display their products. Whether it's a print frame mockup, a tote bag mockup or even a ceramic mug mockup numerous digital download and drop-ship art designers love to use styled mockup photographs to display their product designs to their customers.

I personally love to use product mockups for my digital art prints. I can easily insert my art designs onto beautifully styled frame photos and hey presto... my audience gets to see what my art could look like if they printed it and framed it in there own home.

9. DIGITAL FONTS

Creating your own fonts could be a fun and interesting way to spend a few free hours of your time in order to make a 'passive income' product. I personally have had no experience crafting my own digital fonts and so I'm limited in how much I can attest to it's ease and the level of skill you'll need to acquire in order to create this type of download. 

I love to purchase new and unique fonts on Creative Market and on the websites blog they have tons of useful advice, tips and tricks on how you can go about creating your own designs for yourself or your customers to download and use. Although I haven't sold fonts myself, if you're interested in this type of digital product then I suggest doing your research extensively before you consider setting up shop.

Just as with every other digital download you could potentially create there will most likely be a steep learning curve and plenty of rules and regulations you'll need to uphold in order to safely sell you fonts online.

I'm not saying this to put you off... almost the exact opposite in fact. If you have a love or real interest in beautiful typography and you think font designing may be a fun way to create your passive income then by all means have fun and explore.

With patience and persistence there truly are very few limits to what you can create. Who knows I might even be purchasing my next font from you in the near future.

10. Printable Decorations

As I mentioned in the video above, there's a whole (relatively) hidden world online dedicated to customizing and theming almost anything you're heart desires and it seems that the idea of creating awesome uniquely themed party decorations for a child's party, wedding event or any other celebration has not escaped the digital printable madness... especially not on Etsy!

I've included a link to Etsy below showing you some of the awesome unique printable party decorations available for sale right now just to get your inspiration buzzing. I've also added a fun course you might like to take from a women far more adept at creating party printables than me plus a kick-ass video of hers to give you as much information as I can in this direction.

11. SOCIAL MEDIA TEMPLATES AND PACKAGES

Social media templates can come in real handy for small businesses and entrepreneurs looking to promote and push their products and brands. If you're willing to put in the time and attention to learn how to create them then selling social media digital download templates can be a super useful way to help your fellow entrepreneur and start or grow your passive income.

You can include a wealth of elements to help your customer elevate the look and feel of their business online including stunning stock photos you've taken, background patterns and textures for your customer to use in their social media posts, unique fonts and Instagram, Pinterest & Facebook vertical or horizontal templates ready for them to upload to Photoshop, Illustrator, Canva or Picmonkey and overlay with their own wording.

You can even include pre-made inspirational quote graphics that they can quickly upload on their feeds when they're on the go. 

Again creating social media templates does require a level of graphic design skill but with a little patience and persistence, you'll be uploading amazing social media packages your customers will love in no time at all.

 

12. DIGITAL RESUME / SPREADSHEET AND BUSINESS TEMPLATES

Finally I want to quickly mention a few digital download products that I have fallen in love with since starting my online income journey and couldn't be without. Business templates such as bill tracking spreadsheets, budget spreadsheets, inventory and revenue templates, price lists and even resume templates are popular digital download products loved by so many small business owners and entrepreneurs all around the internet.

If you have a knack for creating easy to follow spreadsheets, perfectly laid out resumes or business focused workbooks then the niche of business related digital downloads could be the perfect place for you to start creating your 'passive income' products.

I love discovering and downloading super helpful spreadsheets and templates that keep my business tasks and to-do's lists on track and if you think you could create something in this niche to help your fellow entrepreneur tackle the day to day hassle of running their business or keeping track of their finances then I definitely recommend taking a look at the wealth of digital design choices you could create here and help your fellow girlboss succeed by creating the perfect product to help them out!

the importance of PERSISTENCE in achieving your big goals!

Well hello there Lady!

So, If you've been reading my blog posts for the last few weeks, you'll know by now how passionate I am about helping you in every way I can to improve your financial situation and create safe, secure and super 'rich' online income streams that will jump-start your financial freedom journey and get you earning extra money in your free-time from the comfort and convenience of your own home!

I do love me some online passive income!! 

You'll also know how passionate I am about debunking the soul destroying myth that the only way you can earn a living is by following the 'traditional method' of bringing in income each month...

You know the one... 

"Find a 'good' paying job, pitch up to work and hand over your precious time each and every day in hopes you can slog and save enough to retire before you reach a 100 years old!"

giphy-23.gif

"If this is you at the end of a work day, then I think it's time you seriously rethink your current financial situation!" 

But on my blog I want you to forget all that "Just go out and get a normal job" rubbish!

Because unless you really enjoy handing over your time and energy to someone else or you love the uncertainty of never quite knowing if you'll be made redundant or loose your job in the next few years due to cut-backs or just plain bad luck, then there are MUCH BETTER ways of bringing in regular, more independant income then replying solely on your employer to pay your bills each month!!   

Instead I want us to be able to talk in-depth about how you should really be working towards building a safe, strong and profitable financial future that you'll truly LOVE in the long-term!!

Ohh yes, a financial future in which you never again have to hand over your precious time and skills for another irriplacable 8 hours of your life, you don't need to bend and flex to your bosses every wish and whim in desperate hopes she'll keep you on at the end of the month, or worry if you can afford to pay the mountain of bills you owe if you need to take some well deserved time off!

Instead... I want to talk to you about how you can build an awesome life-changing financial future that sky-rockets your standard of living to new heights!!!

One in which you can have complete control of your money and finances from the comfort of your own home, knowing that you've created amazing secure income streams that will not only easily support your current lifestyle (and all the expenses that entails), but is also working whilst you sleep to improve your wealth in the long run, grow your assets and scale your financial situation to new levels that would of been almost impossible to reach in your normal 9-5 job!! 

I know what you're probably thinking right now...

"Yeh, sure that sounds awesome in my dream world... but I could never replace my current salary with enough online income to support myself!!"

But I promise you lady, you're wrong!!!

Not only is it super possible to build low-maintenance online income streams that generate enough to support your current lifestyle in the short term...but it's also well within your reach to scale your online income FAR FAR past what most people could ever dream of earning before retirement and generate digital assets such as online businesses and investments that will set your FINANCIAL FUTURE up in the long term!!

BUT lets be as always 100% straight forward here on this blog...

Learning how to grow your online wealth from scratch, how to generate new and low-maintenance online income streams and discovering how to PROPERLY manage your money to help scale it in the long run takes hard work

It's also going to take time and focus and it requires ALOT of self-motivation and discipline to keep working on your financial future goals day after day until you finally reach them.

In hopes of finding other like-minded financially driven women, I initially created the Evaknows blog to share my personal experience in building my own online income streams from scratch and quickly started talking to you about the invaluable lessons, tips and tricks i've discovered along my journey to help keep me moving towards my financial freedom goals. 

Well I felt it was finally time to share a HUGE PROBLEM I'm constantly working on and I know so many of you all wrestle with whilst trying to grow your income in the big online world...

Well, what is it??

Well I'm going to be straight forward with you and tell you that for the last month I have been endlessly struggling with one BIG problem...

A mammoth lack of self motivation and drive to keep pushing towards my goals!!!

That's why in this video I want to talk to you about the 1 word that keeps me pushing on towards my personal goals each and every day... PERSISTANCE!!!

In this video I want to give you a little push in the right direction whether you're just starting your online income journey or you've been quietly chomping away at it for quite some time.

Take 5 minutes out of your hectic day to remind yourself exactly why you're reaching for your financial freedom goals and why PERSISTANCE is the key to your success!

Well hello there lady,

So today we're going to learn how to easily AVOID the MOST important 'legal and ethical' issue you are bound to come across as you start your first online passive income business!!!!!

How to LEGALLY source and download all the graphics (e.g. clipart, fonts, mockups, stock photos ect) you'll need to visually style your online shop, blog, website and social media platforms! 

Why are we talking about this NOW??

Well because if you're thinking about creating ANY form of online content... (e.g. shop branding, drop-ship or digital download products, website and blog graphics, email list freebies... literally anything that has a visual design element to it at ALL)... then you really need to watch this video...

...How to Find and Download Clipart, Fonts, Mockups...The Right Way! (Using Creative Market and Canva)... 

I created this essential video to help you easily navigate how to ethically and legally source the GRAPHIC DESIGN ELEMENTS you'll need to use to grow your business and visually style your brand from day 1!

Almost EVERY type of online business (both passive and active) usually requires at least some graphic design elements (unless you have the time and skill to hand design all your graphics yourself)

Whether you need stock photos and product mockups to create your shop banner, product listing photos or to decorate your blog posts or email freebies...

...or you need gorgeous clipart and fonts to use directly on your products such as art printables, tote bags, mugs, digital planners... I'm going to stop here because I could go on and on!

You will eventually find yourself wondering how you're going to SOURCE and download all the amazing graphic elements you're going to need, to add the finishing touches to your online business and products!

Well i'm going to tell you something right here that I don't EVER want you to forget missy...

(Gosh, that sounds so serious and kind of bossy - sorry for the dramatics there) lol😉

BUT... I want you to remember that whatever you do... NEVER simply hop onto Google images, find a photo, graphic or font you love - copy and paste it to your downloads and start plastering it all over your blog, online shop or heaven forbid your products!!!

 

giphy-20.gif

(Ohh Yes, if you see someone encouraging you to do this... this is exactly how you should react!🙀)

 

Huh... but isn't that what Google Images is there for??

Heck NO!!!

I've seen so many fellow Youtubers and bloggers recommending to their viewers that it's fine to slide onto Google and use it as your personal FREE graphic design resource tool not caring that they could be easily setting you up for some major legal copyright and trademark issues (trust me that shits super serious)!

I've been using commercial license clipart and royalty free graphics for over 2 years now and I can guarantee you that no one serious about building a sustainable online business would dream of going down that route to source their graphics and clipart, heedless of the potential issues it could cause them if they were caught using a copyright image they had no right to use!!

That's why in this video I would like to talk to you about how you can EASILY AND QUICKLY pick up gorgeous clipart, fonts, mockups, stock photos… and so much more with the full rights to use them in your branding, products, blog/website, social media or in any other way you’d like to use them using this awesome graphics resource - 

Powered by Creative Market

CREATIVE MARKET!

I love to use Creative Market and Etsy to find and download ALL the graphics I want to use in my online shops and blogs and that’s why I wanted to create this EASY tutorial to help you find a safe, secure, legal and ethical way to source and purchase kick-ass elements plus how you can easily download them onto Canva to get started making ANYTHING you want for your shop or blog!!

Trust me using a platform like Creative Market to easily guarantee you're playing within the rules is the ONLY way to ensure your business is safe and happy in the long run!!!

See you in this awesome step-by-step tutorial lady,

WHY do I RECOMMEND ETSY FOR ONLINE INCOME NEWBIES?

Etsy is an amazing platform for ALL online income newbies, whether you're in it to make extra money through selling digital downloads, drop-shipping products or creating handmade items you design and make yourself, Etsy is an awesome platform to learn how to successfully sell to an audience, build a brand and gain recognition all from the comfort of a 'marketplace platform' that makes it super easy for newbies to gain experience and start bringing in major bucks each month!!

Etsy is one of the very first platforms I ever used to start making 'passive' income online through digital downloads and I still make a strong monthly income from it 2 years down the road!

I truly recommend it to anyone if you're interested in learning how to build an online business (passive or not) and create another stream of income to support you and your family each and every month.

But I have a HUGEEEE word of warning for you before you simply dive in and duct tape together a rickety looking Etsy shop in hopes you'll quickly make your fortune and retire by the end of the month...

Unfortunately to gain real, long lasting and sustainable income success on Etsy - You need to know EXACTLY what you're doing and be able to implement it step-by-step!

I'm afraid there are no short cuts to this rule and to be honest why bother trying every cheap ass trick in the book to hijack your way to making killer money on Etsy only to have no clue how to replicate your success in the future??  

Trust me in my past stupidity I tried every silly tactic and method to bypass my way to Etsy shop success without putting in the hard work and focus and the only thing I ended up achieving over the course of 4 long months, was a mess of ill thought out branding, half baked products and an Etsy shop I was too ashamed to promote to my friends let alone to anyone in the big online world!!

I learned the lesson the VERY hard way!!! 

What ever you do, don't follow in my footsteps and do the same!!   

 

How can you reach your own etsy success?

If you're serious about creating a truly sustainable, profitable and beautiful Etsy business in the next few months then I'm telling you finding a course or program that can take you step-by-step through the set-up and creation process, to the building an audience and scaling your business portion of growing an Etsy shop is an ESSENTIAL!

I honestly wouldn't be bothering to write this...

...(I'm not a massive fan of writing big blog posts - but I do it on occasion if I really think the subjects worth while)...

...If I thought it was worth scrimping and saving your way through building your Etsy shop to get the same results.

It's NOT!!!

 As I mention in the video above I always want to be honest with you and tell you exactly how I achieved my goals so hopefully it will help you with yours, even if sometimes that means it sends you away from my blog and courses towards something more suited for your needs. 

And when it comes to showing you hwo to create a kick-ass Etsy shop and scale your business to life-changing income results there is truly only one program I have personally taken and can add my seal of approval to... Subscriber Tribe.

Like I spoke about in the video, Subscriber Tribe is an awesome super content packed program perfect for all Etsy business newbies. If you're ready to set-up your first Etsy shop but you just don't know what steps to take or you're struggling with a failing Etsy business that's causing you more trouble then it's worth then now's the time to invest in a killer course that's going to show you exactly how to build an Etsy business that works for you and scales your income to new heights!

 

Why do I love being a member of subscriber tribe?

Before I joined the program I had just opened my very first Etsy shop in late 2016 and had literally no clue how I was going to turn it into a full-time income generating business with my limited (basically non-existant) experience in selling online and driving visitors to my products.

At the start of 2017 I hacksawed my way for 4 months through setting up my branding, creating my products and trying to create some semblance of SEO and for all that initial hardwork and 'misguided' effort do you know how much money I made?

...£79.96! 

In fact that's kind of an over estimate because that ignores the fact that I had wracked up some expenses during those 4 months so I might as well be honest and say I'de ended up in the negative.

That was until I joined (Etsy Academy) now called Subscriber Tribe. 

For those 4 long ass months, i'de been despirately searching for any help online that I could find to guide me in some way to improve my profits and start making a success of my business and although there was great free (super general) advice showing me how to make little improvements here and there, I could find nothing that gave me a solid step-by-step easy to follow action plan to help me reach my Etsy shop goals in months (not years).

Then one day I finally stumbled upon a super quirky (and funny) fellow Etsy seller called Jenni Waldrop who for the first time gave me real 'actionable' guidance I could follow and implement in the awesome Ultimate Guide to Etsy 40-Page MEGA tutorial 

(Your welcome to download her free Step-by-Step Etsy Resource yourself if you fancy a look)

And it's safe to say as soon as I'de worked my way through her free Ultimate Guide I signed up to become a member of her super sales boosting Etsy Program Subscriber Tribe!

Why??

Because by that point (and for the first time since I'de started my Etsy journey), I knew exactly where I wanted to take my Etsy shop and I knew exactly who I wanted to help mentor me achieve my Etsy success goals! 

And I can safely say, It was the VERY BEST decision I made to boost my online income since I started over 4 months before!

Trust me if it wasn't, I wouldn't be using precious space in MY blog to tell my valuable readers about it...

I truly never want to steer any of my crazy cool ladies towards a product that I don't think is worth it's weight in gold! 

But I can truly say that this course (to this day) helps me stay accountable for my Etsy success and grow as an Etsy shop owner and so I'm super happy to recommend that if you're looking for Etsy guidance then you should check it out yourself - SUBSCRIBER TRIBE!
    

Believe me, finding legit actionable Etsy advice and guidance in an easy to follow format (and) a mentor that you genuinely trust and find MAJOR value from is no easy feat to accomplish and i've had to wade through an ocean of bloggers promising you the world and delivering zip...

...to finally find someone I would recommend to my valuable blog visitors!

And that's why I want to literally shout this course out to anyone who's struggling to grow their Etsy business or who's thinking about starting one up because I KNOW you'll find crazy awesome value in this program and the kick-ass members only facebook group it comes with.

 

What Do you get in subscriber tribe?

🎉  Kick-Ass In-Depth video tutorials!

🎉  Super Helpful Downloadable resources!

🎉  Awesome Live Q&A sessions each month in which you can ask Jenni questions!

🎉  'Get Shit Done' Workshops to keep you focused!

🎉  Exclusive Etsy Guides and Blog Posts full of action packed advice!

🎉  And the Super Interactive Facebook Group - Who you can chat to everyday! 

 

I was able to scale my ramshakle Etsy shop into a strong and profitable online business that now makes me (£100's) per month plus use the skills and techniques i've learned to open an Amazon shop that now brings my combined income up to over (£1000+ a month)

All in the course of 9 months!!

And most importantly it's given me the confidence and knowledge to take all the skills i've learned so far and am still learning, as the tribe is an amazing lifetime membership program that still releases new kick-ass Etsy success content each month, to create and scale any online business that I set my mind too (including the blog you're reading right now).

 

WHAT will YOU LEARN IN SUBSCRIBER TRIBE?

😍 What TASKS you should be doing, all in the exact order you should be doing them to create a successful Etsy shop!

😍 How to SET-UP and SCALE your Etsy business to awesome heights in a matter of months!

😍 And how to think and work like a SUCCESSFUL business owner! 

 

These are just a few of the thing's i've learned since being an active member of the Subscriber Tribe Group!

Jenni will show you ALL the skills and tools you'll need to reach your Etsy shop goals in a matter of months! 

When you know all the tricks that make you KILLER income consistently, it’s easy to apply them all over your business, in a million different ways. 

 

ARE YOU READY TO CREATE YOUR OWN ETSY SHOP?

Just like any online income stream you build, there is no such thing as easy success when it comes to making money online.

Just like with anything worth while you are going to have to sit down, get focused and really start implimenting all the tips, tricks and techniques Jenni has to offer in her program to really see your income build and scale in the months that follow...

Believe me i've worked my little butt off to surpass my income targets in such a short time.

BUT...I can without hesitation say that even if i'de put the exact same effort in to my Etsy shop but had never found and took the step to join Subscriber Tribe I know I wouldn't be anywhere near as far along as I am now.

I would not be in the position to go part time in my full-time job (long story short I've chose to stay in my active employment simply because I enjoy the work and love the people) nor would I be far enough along in my journey to feel confident and knowledgeable enough to start my own online blog documenting my 'Passive' income journey to financial freedom!

And that's why i've taken the time to sit down and write a blog post about my favorite Etsy program and talk to you about how it's helped me on my journey and why it might be perfect for you to try aswell! 

I've never been afraid of putting in the hard work as long as I know that what i'm working towards is going to help me and my financial freedom goals in the long run and when you're building an profitable Etsy business I think that's the exact mentality you need to keep to get you through the difficult bits and gain your reward...

A kick-ass online income stream you can manage from the comfort of your home (or anywhere you want).

And in my experience the good times of building my Etsy shop, the increased monthly income and the knowledge and skills i've gained from being a member of Subscriber Tribe and scaling my online businesses have FAR outweighed the time and effort i've had to put in to set them up...

And I recommend giving Subscriber Tribe a real go to anyone looking to start their own Etsy business and improve their own financial future in the short and long term!   

If you're looking for an easy to follow step-by-step Etsy program that you can really sink your teeth into and get started creating kick-ass online income then I KNOW this is the course for you!!

No matter what course or path you choose to take to improve your online business skills and income I hope no matter what you have fun!

See you in the next blog post lady,

Top 3 Beginners guide to personal finance books I love!

Hi Guys,

So in this video I quickly want to talk to you about 3 awesome money management books i’ve purchased that have helped me to seriously sky-rocket my money skills as a 28 year old woman!

I think one of the MOST important elements to building wealth and gaining financial freedom is learning how to manage your personal finances properly...

IT'S LITERALLY A MUST-DO LADY!

Personal finance books | Money management for young adults | Personal finance tips | Personal finance tools | Personal finance planning | Personal finance goals | Personal finance management | Personal finance 20s

And it's something that over the last year I have become truly obsessed about because i've finally caught onto the reality that so many of us are just quite simply NEVER taught in school and university.

"It's not about how much money you make, it's about how much money you allocate in the right places to improve your financial situation!"

Put it this way, If you received a nice fat £1000 check from your granny because she went ham and won the motherload on the bingo (we can only dream) lol

Would you know exactly how to allocate that £1000 to get the very best bang for your buck from every penny that went into your bank account?

Would you splash out and spend it on new shoes?

Hide it away in a low interest savings account?

...Or even use it ALL to pay off SOME of that credit card debt you've wracked up?

Would you know what's best for you and your current financial situation or would you just randomly choose the option that FELT best to you at the time (inevitably missing out on the great opportunities staring you in the face on how to make that money work hard for you and improve your financial position).

I've seen so many amazing, strong and super driven women hustle day after day to earn as much money as possible whilst having zero clue how their meant to use it to get maximum rewards for all their hard work.

They take on extra shifts, work double time in the holidays and scrape together as much as they possibly can only to watch it trickle out their bank accounts and disappear into the ether, never to be heard from again.

I promise you, i'm not judging!

For most of my life i've followed in the exact same footsteps blindly filtering my money into any old bank account and paying little to no attention to how I'm managing the awesome resource I have available, only caring enough to make sure my bills are paid on time and I can afford a meal or two out once in a while!

Well just over a year ago I finally decided I'de had enough of living hand to mouth and completely clueless, and I went in search to find out what I should actually be doing with my little limited pot of money.

I decided to do something I'de never done before and put some real focus and energy into making sure that every penny that fell into my account was allocated to slowly improving my financial situation, investing in my financial future and pushing me closer and closer to financial freedom!

And what surprised me the most??

Looking after your money isn't all that difficult or scary!!

I now have pre-set income allocations that I use to pay my bills, invest in my future and dedicate to guilt free spending each and every month and I went from the girl who swore blind she barely made enough to pay her rent and phone contract to feeling secure in the knowledge that I'm doing the best I can to build my finances properly whilst allowing myself the guilty pleasures I enjoy once in a while (with cash to spare)!! 

Ironically during that period of time my income didn't really increase that much but through improving my financial education and finally understanding how I should be moving my money to achieve the goals I want, I went from feeling constantly stressed out that I wouldn't have enough money to get by each month to honestly lifting a weight off my shoulders and being pro-active in achieving my financial goals.

Below i've created a video talking to you about just 3 awesome books i've read (and used) to help improve my financial knowledge and gain more control of my finances as a whole and in future months i'm going to be creating more articles and videos on the subject of money management because I want all my readers to understand that it's not just about how much income you make it's about what you do with it after it hits your bank account!

I want my blog to be a safe space for women to gain the whole picture about building financial security and freedom.

Yes, my main focus right now is about helping you build awesome online income streams that increase your cash-flow and your ability to allocate more money to different areas of you current financial situation but I also want to start opening conversations with you kick-ass ladies on how to best use your money to build the financial future you want...

And deserve!

I'm all about learning on this blog and i'm so excited for you to share in my experience and journey with discovering much more about financial education.

Together we can work to create a financially confident and competant group of women who feel safe and secure in their ability to make the most from the income they earn.

So without me waffling on even more (as you probably by now know I love to do) lets get on with the video I created about my favorite beginners personal finance books and exactly what i've learned from them :)  

If you’re looking for an awesome place to start your money mindset journey and learn how to manage your income properly then I seriously recommend picking up these 3 amazing books...

My Current favorite Money Management Books as Mentioned in the Video:
 

📚 ANN WILSON: The Wealth Chef - How To Make your Money Work Harder, So You Don't Have To!

📚 TONY ROBBINS: Unshakeable: Your Guide to Financial Freedom through investing!

📚 THE HAPPY PLANNER: A great resource to use to help you organize you own finances and note direct debits, standing orders, subscriptions ect somewhere visible! 

 

side NOTE:

I will be adding more books and Guides that I personally love to this list as I go along to help anyone looking for awesome resources and tools to help build their own financial education!

See you back on the blog,

It's time to start your passive income journey!

8.jpg

Hi Guys, 

In this video I want to talk to you about the MOST important part of creating passive income and money online...

"JUST GETTING STARTED!!"

Work out what you need to do to take the first steps towards your passive income and financial freedom goals and dive right in!

I promise you, it's no where near as scary as people make 'creating passive income' out to seem!

 

Watch the video to discover the most important element to making passive income online:

 

ARE YOU READY TO MAKE PASSIVE INCOME?

I’m currently working on a fun and most importantly 'beginner friendly' way for you to start your passive income journey right now, which I will hopefully be releasing on my blog in the next months...

But no matter whether that course is for you or not, what's most important is that you work out what you want to achieve in your financial future, you set your first goals and you start taking the essential steps YOU need to take to create your first passive income stream online!!

I promise you, you can do this girl!

Trust me, once you start taking steps towards building a financial future you love and that works for you (away from the time and energy draining 'normal' 9-5 job)... 

You'll discover so many life-changing skills and adopt amazing cash-flow improving habits, that your future self will worship the ground you walk on for taking that VERY FIRST STEP and starting your passive income journey now!     

 

ABOUT THE UP-COMING PASSIVE INCOME COURSE:

As I mentioned in the video I will soon be releasing a STEP-BY-STEP online passive income course for my blog readers in the next coming months, just to help you make that BIG leap and dive right into creating your first passive income stream on Etsy (one of my favorite passive income platforms)!

If you’re interested in taking that course as soon as it’s released then sign up to the waiting list and you’ll receive a free 15% coupon you can use if you decide to buy…

PASSIVE INCOME WITH ART PRINTABLES - COMING SOON

When I started my passive income journey designing and selling easy and fun to create art printables online 2 years ago, I had no idea how far it would take me into growing my cash-flow online and changing my financial future for the better. 

I also had no idea that I would be learning LIFE-CHANGING passive income skills that I could easily use over and over again to steadily replace my full-time job with the low-maintenance income I now make online!

Now I want to show anyone willing and ready to build their own passive income streams online EXACTLY how I did it and more importantly I want to teach them the killer passive income skills I’ve learned over the last 2 years that have sky-rocketed my ability to make passive income from the comfort of my own home whilst working on WHATEVER online business I decide to put my focus into!

So why am I so driven to help women build their own safety net of passive income?

Well, I'm going to be completely honest and tell you it's based on my own personal experience watching so many amazing women in my life struggle to actively 'work for' enough income each month to support their families, pay their bills and scrape together a semblance of savings from their FULL-TIME job! 

     Ohh yes, I really am that blogger that cringes when asked about her life story!

    Ohh yes, I really am that blogger that cringes when asked about her life story!

For the last 28 years of my life, i've been raised around so many amazing, strong, capable women who've spent their lives working tirelessly for every penny they've been given and though its 100% admirable, its also 100% the most risky way to maintain you're financial lifestyle in the short and LONG run!

If at ANY point and for ANY reason (e.g. accident, illness) most of the women in my life had to stop working for a month or 2 at a time, they would have ZERO income to fall back on and what's worse they're monthly expenses would keep filter in, robbing them of any precious savings they'd managed to hold onto and so they have to start all over again, back at square one.

(Ohh yes, this scenario happened a lot in my single parent family).

I'll be honest with you, it's a truly scary and vicious cycle to watch someone you love constantly scramble and tirelessly work to pay the bills each month, knowing that if they took more than a few days off a year they’d be plunged into a financial crisis they couldn’t get out of.

With no alternative forms of income, nothing to keep the cash-flow pumping even if they HAD to stop working for a month, I witnessed what it truly looked like to be completely dependent on one form of active income and what’s worse what it felt like to witness that hard working person, through no fault of their own loose that job and what little financial security that came with it!

That is when I finally learned the HARD LESSON...

Relying solely on your active employment to pay the bills each and every month is not only time, energy and soul destroying but it’s also flat out DANGEROUS in the long run and quite frankly it's a cruel situation that I truly don't want anyone willing and ready to do something to improve their financial situation to get trapped in!

So, if you're willing to put in the time and the effort up front then I'm honestly here to help you steer the wheel of your finances in a MUCH MUCH MUCH safer direction!!!

It's time to start growing multiple streams of PASSIVE income!

On my blog I want to help women create and grow 'easy to maintain’ online income streams that they can run from the comfort of their own home!

I want to help you set up online businesses that give you financial choice, financial gain and most importantly financial freedom in the long and short term!

These businesses are designed specifically towards giving you back more and more of your free time, enabling you to choose what you want to spend your hours on each day knowing that you’re constant active involvement in the business isn’t needed to keep it bringing in income each month!

              Can you explain that again for less geeky folks?

             Can you explain that again for less geeky folks?

I know what I just said might sound like a lot of mumble jumble, but really all it means it that you no longer have to exchange you precious time and energy everyday to pay your bills each month, that's because your well structured and automated online businesses will begin to work for you whilst you focus on whatever else you need or want to get done with your free time!

Ohh yes, you really can create online businesses that run on their own! 

Now I never ever want to lie to any one following my passive income journey and so i’m always upfront about how much work you’ll need to put in upfront to build any passive income business… (To cut it short... ALOT!)

And it’s going to take a steep learning curve and a change in your financial mindset to reach a point in which you trust you’re online income streams to support you each and every month…

BUT I promise you, it’s so worth your time and effort and it’s truly going to be the best thing you’ll EVER do for your future self, because you’ll be granting her the holy grail… FINANCIAL FREEDOM in the long run!

What ever you do, don’t be the girl who closes her eyes to the vicious work cycle she’s trapped in and blindly follows the rest for the crowd for the next 30+ years of her life hoping and praying she can afford retirement!

Make it happen for yourself, take the first steps and grow your passive income pot from the comfort of your own home... starting NOW!!

If you want a financial future full of security, certainty and FREEDOM?

Then it's time you sit down, roll up your sleeves and make it happen for YOURSELF!

It’s time you take the state of your financial future into your own hands and i’m going to help you every step of the way to build your own online passive income streams that have got your back over the long time, steadily filtering money back into your life each and every month!

 

Are you ready to create your first online passive income stream?

As I mention in the video I'm currently working on creating a STEP-BY-STEP online course to help you get past that 'scary' hurdle and set up your FIRST online passive income stream which you can grow to whatever income level you want!!!

Why are online passive income businesses so awesome? (Video + Blog Post)

Why are Online Passive Income Businesses so Awesome | Passive Income | Online Passive Income |  passive income ideas, passive income streams, passive income side hustle, online passive income, easy passive income, types of passive income, passive income business, building online wealth, smart passive income, passive income for beginners

Hey Guys, 

So in this video (Scroll to the bottom to watch) and blog post I want to talk to you about one of the biggest growing movements online right now!

If you're anything like me and you love discovering awesome ways to make money online then Evaknows is exactly where you want to be and i'm going to explain exactly why to you below. 

                  ↑ Ohh yes, Aladdin! You know what I mean! ↑

                ↑ Ohh yes, Aladdin! You know what I mean! ↑

If you've never heard of them before then this is going to be one heck of an introduction to 'Online Passive Income Businesses' that you really shouldn't miss because the information i'm going to share with you can quite literally change not only the way you think about 'earning' money but most importantly inspire you to take the leap yourself and try creating an online passive business that will (eventually) give you back your freedom as well as skyrocket your income! 

2 years ago I started my journey creating and growing small passive income streams online and what I quickly realized is that it's by far the best thing i've ever done for my financial situation!!

Now i'm not going to lie to you like anything worth while, building online passive income streams takes persistance, determination and most importantly the ability to learn a different way of thinking about money that most of us were never taught growing up!

You see, most of us are taught from an early age that we need to get a good education, find a stable job and work our way to retirement without even considering if that's really the best thing for ourselves and the lifestyle we dream of living.

What's sadder, is that even with the birth of the internet, social media and yes blogging, most us will never take advantage of the new wealth of swirling knowledge that's now available on how a select few people are (not so secretly) raking in cash each month from a wealth of other sources aside from the 9-5 job scheme!

If you've made it here, then I'm confident that you're one of a very select group of ladies who know that there are much BETTER ways of 'earning' money and affording the lifestyle that you truly want then handing over your valuable time and energy every day to a boss who loves to control you and a company that thinks of you as just a number.

And i'm here to tell you that from my experience, creating passive income streams online is by far THE very best way to start steering your financial future towards a lifestyle you love and are proud of!

Ohh yes, one in which you can earn money from the comfort of your home with minimal maintenance in the long run and one in which you can (eventually) control:

  • How hard you work
  • How much time you put in to your businesses

and

  • How high you want your income to skyrocket each and every month!

HARDCORE REALITY CHECK:

Now i'm going to be 100% real with you here, because i'm not one of those charlatans that promises you FREE, SUPER EASY money just to get you to hand over yours...

Creating online passive income streams is truly a life-changing action and over time you will start to build businesses that can almost entirely run on autopilot and merrily bring you in strong, consistant income each and every month...

 

"BUT... THEY TAKE TIME TO SET-UP AND BUILD FIRST!"

 

Passive income in the long run can give you back your free time, liberate you from the harrowing 9-5 rat race and ensure that you're building a financial future that's rich in FREEDOM and ENJOYMENT but they take determination, focus, energy and most importantly time to reach that level! 

In the video below, I want to talk to you about 4 of the most important reasons why I think creating online 'passive income' businesses from scratch could be the best journey you ever take to financial freedom but I'm going to be ruthless here... don't bother watching if you're looking for a quick way to make a few bucks and move on because passive income is certainly not for you!

I really want commited, driven and most importantly determined women to join me on this awesome journey to financial freedom! 

It's not always going to be an easy ride to build the financially free lifestyle we want but together on Evaknows I know we can build an empire of online businesses that are self sustaining, time freeing, uber powerful and will most importantly liberate us from ever having to hand over our precious time and energy to companies and bosses that could never value us as much as we value ourselves.

Over the last 2 years I've taught myself how to build small manageable online businesses that now generate me over £1000+ a month in passive income.

Trust me it's not been the easiest thing i've done in my life but I promise you it has been by far the MOST rewarding!!

How to use Printful to create super easy drop-ship products you can sell on Etsy and Amazon!

How to create a drop-shipping product using Printful | Passive income | passive income ideas | passive income streams | passive income side hustle | online passive income | easy passive income | types of passive income | passive income business | building online wealth | smart passive income | passive income for beginners

Hi Guys,

So in this fun video I'm going to show you how you can create awesome drop-ship products that you can easily create and sell in your Etsy shop, on Amazon or even offer on your own website or blog!

P.s Download your FREE step-by-step checklist to using Printful here:

I've been selling drop-shipped products in my Etsy and Amazon store for over 6 months now and i've never looked back. It's super easy to do, it takes almost no time to place an order and most importantly it's a super fun and low-maintenance way to make income online!

If you want to check out Printful for yourself then here's the link to their website - *PRINTFUL.COM

Also don't forget to grab your FREE downloadable Printful checklist which takes you step-by-step through your first order and ensures you flow seamlessly through the entire process whether you're ordering your first samples or placing a customer delivery!

On my blog I talk alot about how important it is to start building profitable online low-maintenance income streams to either help support your current financial situation (e.g. if you have job or active self emplyment) or replace your 'active' income streams all together.

Creating an online drop-shipping business is a great option for those of you who want to open an easy to maintain online business such as an Etsy shop, Amazon store or blog, as products are manufactured, packaged and shipped everytime someone places an order by a competetant company who knows exactly what they're doing and leaves you to do nothing in that department at all.

It also frees you up to focus solely on building awesome low-maintenance sales and marketing funnels within your business that will do most of the driving traffic and  converting your visitors into paying customers for you.

Like I talk about in most of my blog posts and videos, creating a low-maintenance online income business is all about setting up strong, stable systems that work for you rather then you working for them day in, day out.

Creating passive income products is a super important element to any online passive business and trust me i've experienced the draining timely tasks that come with actively manufacturing and shipping each and every product myself that my customers order in my shop.

If you're looking to make low-maintnence income online then creating and shipping products yourself is a big NO NO!

If you haven't already checked it out, or if you're not 100% sure on what 'Passive Income Products' are or what types you can create then definitely check out my FREE "How to Make Passive Income Online Email Course" which will take you step by step through everything you'll need to set up an online passive business INCLUDING "What products you should sell to make passive income online."

As I mentioned in the video, I personally love using Printful to drop-ship my products to my customers and as they've shipped over 3 million customer orders to date, I definitely suggest checking them out if you're looking for a super reliable and easy to use drop-ship company if you're interested in setting it up as your first business! 

Check out Printful for yourself- *PRINTFUL.COM

If setting up a passive income drop-shipping business sounds like fun to you (trust me it is) then i've got tons more video tutorials and blog post coming your way in the next few months!

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email me and give me some ideas for future videos or blog post you want to see on Evaknows!

See you back in the vault,

Hey Ladies,

So in this video I wanted to be super real with you and talk to you all about my current financial situation (Trust me it feels so scary to put myself out there and actually talk to you about what i've managed to achieve so far).

I'm going to be honest, I feel nervous, vulnerable but also super pumped that I might be able to help even one single person discover a new way of making money online that they've maybe never considered before!

I'm just at the start of my Financial Freedom journey but during the last 2 years i've been able to create 4 awesome income streams online that bring me in a small full-time income each and every month (£1000+)!

I promise you I literally started with zero knowledge about passive income, making money online or what it would take to build a business and scale it to making me anything more than a few pounds a month, but although i'm certainly not making millions right now I have learned enough to share my jounrey with you so far if you're interested and hopefully give you first hand (in the trenches) tips and guidance on what it takes to reach your first big mile stone of making a full time 'passive' income online.

I know that they're are tons of uber successful passive income creators out there that you could follow and learn from and trust me I would never dream of stopping you from exploring the wealth of knowledge they all have and in fact I encourage you to branch out and try as many different techniques and tricks as you want but If I can do one thing for you, then it might be to give you the up close insider advice on what it takes to be a small fish in the giant world of online retail and blogging and slowly work your way up to the big leagues.

Trust me i'll be sharing every moment of the experience with you, helping you take your very first terrifying steps into growing your 'own' online passive income streams from scratch and scaling them up just as I did.  

Having (Easy to Maintain) income streams that I can manage from the comfort of my own home has truly changed my life and most importantly given me the drive and focus to steer my financial future in the direction I REALLY want!

If you're tired of exchanging your time and energy every single day in for the sake of cold hard cash each month then you're definitely ready to explore the world of online low-mainteance income. 

And so without further chatter let's dive straight into the video on the 4 ways I make Passive Income online!

How to Stay Organized and Motivated When Building An Online Business!

Hey ladies,

So in this video and blog post and video I wanted to talk to you about something I know almost everyone of you will struggle with at some point if you're thinking of/or have already started building an online business!

How do you stay motivated and organized when you're trying to build an online business??

Well in this video I'm going to be sharing 8 super helpful tips and tricks that have helped me build 3 successful online businesses and still have time to live a happy, fulfilling life over the last 2 years!

I'm still on my journey to financial freedom and I totally understand that finding enough time and energy to build multiple online businesses whilst maintaining a happy lifestyle can be one of the most challenging things you'll ever do!

So that's why I want to share with you as many helpful nuggets as possible to *MAKE SURE* you don't give up on your journey to improve your financial future just because you're struggling with finding enough time and energy to reach your goals.

So I'm about to stop waffling and let you dive straight into this super helpful video!

 

So I hope you enjoyed the video and discovered some tips and tricks you may not of thought of before!

I'm not going to lie to you I wasn't always a super organized and driven human being. I used to laze around, expect things to just work out for me without even trying and assume that luck would help me achieve anything I wanted in life.

That's until I woke up and got wise on the fact that the future really doesn't care how much you WANT to achieve your goals, she only cares about how much time and energy you put in to MAKING them happen.

After that I quickly took being organized super seriously and I can honestly say that I would not of been able to build my 3 super awesome online businesses without it!

If you're ready to start building an online business and looking for a way to get super organized and prepped before you begin the journey then definitely download my Passive Income Planner which will take you step by step through setting your monthly passive income goals and setting easy to manage daily tasks to achieve them.

Note: This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links and decide to buy I will get a tiny bit of compensation for your doing so. I want to stress that in no way does me including affiliate links affect my opinion of a product good or bad and I would never bother linking to an item I didn't deem worthy of being purchased by me or my readers. I never want anyone to waste good money they've worked hard to earn!

 

Tools and Resources I use:

 

Now that you've got all the info in your back pocket (or saved in your downloads) it's time to discover some awesome resources that you'll NEED to build your very first (and future) low-maintenance online business:

Graphic Design Platforms

These websites and programs are the corner stones for almost any online business!

They give you the tools to create your passive income products, design your own business branding and create super traffic enticing graphics to splash all over social media and the rest of the online world.

Although there are tons of graphic software programs out there for you to choose from I personally have used and recommend all 3 of the ones I've listed below:

PicMonkey* - If you haven't heard of PicMonkey then you've truly been missing out. Out of the 3 i've mentioned I personally think that PicMonkey is the EASIEST design website for complete graphic newbies and it makes creating visually stunning branding, products and social media posts a breeze for almost anyone!

Try PicMonkey for FREE here!

Canva - I love Canva. It's super intuitive and if you have even a splash of graphic design knowledge then you'll find it super easy to navigate and use. It comes fully loaded with hundreds of gorgeous graphic design templates and once you get to grips with it's set-up then you'll loose hours having fun and creating gorgeous visuals with this website!

Try Canva here for FREE!

Adobe* - I like using Adobe for more of the technical stuff that to be honest you don't really have to get to grips with at all when you're just starting out selling online but when you're ready to upgrade you graphic design tools to something a little more advanced and powerful then Adobe offers tons of awesome resources and elements that will skyrocket your graphic skills!

Try Adobe for 7 Days for FREE here!

 

Drop-Ship Companies:

As I mention a little bit about drop-shipping in this video I wanted to include a few options for you to look at and discover more about.

I love drop-shipping. It's a super easy and managable way to be able to offer physical products to your customers without sacrificing much of your time manufacturing, packaging and shipping each order everyday.

I personally use Printful to offer physical art prints to my customers that I created using the graphic design programs I mentioned above.

Printful takes my digital designs and prints and ships my art prints to my customers everytime they purchase from my shop, so it's a wonderful way to introduce physical products to your selling platform without having to worry about fulfilling the orders yourself.

(Note: Always remember to test and sample your finished products from your chosen drop-shipping company BEFORE you offer them in your shop or website. It's always essential to make sure that you are 100% happy with the quality of the product, packaging and shipping times when you are considering offering any form of physical product to your customers)

Printful - As I mentioned above this is the only drop-shipping company that I currently work with and I absolutely love how helpful, efficient and easy to use they are. If you're considering selling physical products online such as t-shirts, mugs, clothing, art prints e.c.t then I definitely recommend you check them out!

Printed Mint - I haven't personally worked with Printed Mint but during my research phase to find the perfect drop-shipping company for ME I came across this company and the stunning wide range of items they have to offer. If I hadn't of ended up going for Printful then I think I definitely would of gone for these so I think they're worth checking out!

 

Which Platform to set-up on?

Deciding where to set-up your first low-maintenance business whether its on an online marketplace like Amazon or Etsy or on your own independant website or blog is a huge decision and one that can have a huge impact on how easy and profitable your online business will be in the long run.

I'm not going to go into this super IMPORTANT decision in this little section on this blog post but I will be focusing some major attention on it in my up-coming videos because it literally can make or break your low-maintenance business if you don't do your homework and understand the pro's and cons to each BEFORE you set-up shop!

I actually have a super helpful video HERE on "Marketplace vs Independant platforms" that lays bare the clear Positives and Negatives of selling on both and helps you find the right platform for YOU before you even think of selling anything online!

If you've already watched that video or you're just ready to dive in a take a look around some awesome platform options then i've created a list of options below:

Marketplace Platforms:

Amazon

Etsy

Creative Market*

Not On The High Street

Rakuten.com

 

Platforms to Create Independent ecommerce websites or blog:

Wordpress.org

Squarespace.com

Wix.com*

Shopify.com*

 

Great Traffic-driving and Automation Tools:

Now I know that if you're just starting out you may not yet have a single product to sell or a blog or website for visitors to browse on but trust me when I say how quickly you'll find yourself reaching that point as soon as you set your mind to building your first online business. 

That's why I wanted to just mention a few amazing platforms and tools I use to drive traffic and don't worry I will be creating tons of super helpful videos and blog posts on every resource I use and EXACTLY how I use it to drive thousands of interested passionate visitors and customers to my online businesses each and every month!

Pinterest - My number one traffic driving resource!!! I absolutely love Pinterest and accredit at least 60% of my monthly sales to being able to easily drive traffic from this awesome platform. 

Tailwind* - This wonderful tool enables me to set up my Pinterest Pins months in advance. Since I've had it I've been able to step away from constantly Pinterest pinning my life away and gain back heaps of my time, only sitting down for a couple of hours to lay out my traffic driving Pinterest sequence for months at a time!

Convertkit* - In the past i've tried a wealth of other email automation programs and for me personally nothing comes close to Convertkit. In the past few months I've skyrocketed my email subscribers and I truly accredit almost all of it to finally getting on board with an email program I get on with. 

Coschedule - I love Coschedule! It's in my opinion one of the BEST social media schedulers for any online business especially low-maintenance ones. You might not be thinking about it at the beginning of your passive income journey but I promise you pretty soon you'll be hankering for a killer social media platform like Coschedule that enables you to schedule all your social media posts months in advance and synchronize them in perfect uniform. 

Etsy on sale - This tools is obviously pretty specific to one platform (can you guess which one??) but I just wanted to include it in this short list of all the automation and traffic driving tools I use simply to highlight that amoungst all the big mainstream popular resouces out there, there are also heaps of smaller, varied and super duper useful tools that can help give you back more and more of your free time as your business grows. 

I personally love Etsy on sale. I use it to automatically renew my Etsy product listings (something I will go into much more detail about in future "How to create a low-maintenance Etsy Business" tutorials) as well as run sales in my Etsy shop and back up my product photography on autopilot.

giphy-6.gif

So let's sum up this Low-Maintenance business sh*t!

Using amazing online resources and tools to help run your business and drive traffic to help it grow is truly the difference between an actively run "full-time job" online business and one that's deliberately engineered to be low-maintenence and take care of itself.

I'm going to leave this blog post here lovely, before it turns into a full blown article on automation and driving traffic organically (which I love) but I hope that you've found some super useful inspiration and advice on how to start up your own low-maintenance business and start making your passive income online.

If you haven't already then definitely download these FREEBIES to really kick-start your journey to financial FREEDOM and build online income streams that work for you... NOT the other way round and I can't wait to see you in the next video or blog post!

Speak to you soon lady,

... and now that you're all caught up and ready to learn how to take those killer art printables (or other kind of digital downloads) you've made and upload them into your Etsy shop then it's time for you to settle in, sip your coffee and watch the video below.

So there you have it... 

How to list a digital download on Etsy!

I absolutely love creating digital art printables that my customers can purchase and print out themselves because its fun to learn, it's super creative and most importantly its not difficult to design and upload them onto a marketplace platform.

Trust me it can be done in minutes!!

The beauty of digital downloads is that once you've created them you can easily upload them into your online shop, add a description, pricing and photos and they'll be set-up to create you residual passive income for years and years to come. 

Of course I always recommend that from time to time you go back to your listing and update it to incorporate new keywords, more up-to-date cover photos and better product titles, but the awesomeness of creating a digital download product that your customer purchases and then prints out or uses online is that once you've done the initial work to design and display it in your store or indeed on your blog, you're FREE from the traditional ailments that usually keep an active seller up working late into the night (e.g. creating new inventory, packaging individual orders and arraging for shipment to your customers chosen address)

In the past i've been that girl up till all hours packaging and processing my physical products to ship out to customers as soon as I can, believe me when your shop starts to go bat sh*t crazy with orders and you're working yourself into a frenzy with duct tape and shipping labels to get each purchase fulfilled, you can bet you'll be wishing you'd gone down the digital download route and let an automated system cater to your customers order instead of you!

Of course if you would still prefer to, you can create awesome physical products and sell them in your Etsy shop aswell however in order to keep your involvement and time low I would always recommend using a service such as a drop-shipping company that will manufacture and ship your design to your customers for you if your wishing to keep your business as passive as possible.  

In future videos I will be discussing more and more about drop-shipping and all the essential facts you'll need to know in order to keep selling physical products online relatively low-maintenance.

But for now I just want to introduce you to selling digital downloads online and how fun, easy and profitable it can be as a hustle on the side.

If you're interested in selling any type of digital download on Etsy or you're thinking of taking that extra step and looking to start offering drop-ship products in your new Etsy store then I want you to go ahead and download my FREE workbook "How to Find the Perfect Passive Income Product to Sell on Etsy!" to help you narrow down exactly what product you want to sell before you hop to work designing and uploading your chosen items.

I'm so excited that you're thinking of growing your very own passive income Etsy shop lady and don't worry I will be releasing way more blog posts and video tutorials packed to the brim with super helpful advice and tricks in the next coming weeks to keep you on track as you go!

See you back on the blog lady!

HOW TO CREATE A SUCCESSFUL ETSY SHOP IN 5 STEPS!

↑↑  GRAB YOUR ETSY FREEBIE  ↑↑

 

Hi guys,

In this tutorial I want to highlight some of the ABSOLUTELY key elements every Etsy shop must have in order to be successful!

I totally love Etsy! 

It's one of the very first places I set up shop and started selling low maintenance products online at the start of my passive income journey and I have to say just over a year and a half down the line I still class it as one of my favorite platforms to make regular passive income.

Now by no means in this video am I saying that my Etsy shop is completely perfect (#aspirations)! 

I still spend a portion of my month trying out different tips, tricks and strategies to squeeze even more juice out of my Etsy shop with less and less effort, but I did want to show you gorgeous girlies what i've learned so far and how i've managed to go from being literally CLUELESS about how to sell online to make a full-time low maintence income each and every month!!

Just to be transparent Etsy isn't the only platform I sell on and I will be making even more videos if you're interested on how I make additional income from Amazon and Creative Market (which are two other great platforms)

...but Etsy has consistently been a strong income source for me from the moment I set up my shop and so I thought what better platform to introduce you guys too as you start your own journey to passive income.

That all being said lets get on with the tutorial. Ohh and don't forget to download the awesome How to find the perfect passive income Etsy product workbook (Whew thats a mouthful) once you're done!

I hope you found some really useful advice and guidance in this video and you're all pumped to focus on opening your own Etsy shop!

 

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Creating an Etsy shop can be a truly rewarding and fun way to build an online passive income stream that you can eventually automate and largely leave to run itself. 

However I'm not going to lie to you, the initial set-up and build of any online business including an Etsy shop takes dedication, work and a little time to get it right before you can leave it to run on auto-pilot.

Remember the goal isn't to create a haphazard income stream that quickly fizzles out because the foundation you laid for the business in the beginning was sh*t!

What you should be focused on building is a STRONG and EFFICIENT online income stream that's strategically set-up, effectively marketed and correctly automated so that you can eventually leave it alone to do most of the heavy lifting for you each month, safe in the knowledge that you've crafted a passive income stream that can stand the test of time and what's more grow in the years to come!

 As my blog grows I will be releasing more and more video tutorials, guides and courses to help you create and scale your very first passive income stream the RIGHT WAY!!

YOU'RE ABOUT TO CREATE A PASSIVE INCOME FIELD OF DREAMS HERE, LETS DO IT RIGHT!!
