Your own Merch Store with Adfluencer

Earning money with your own hobby has become a dream come true as an influencer. Typically this happens with the obvious sources of income like advertising revenue and placement fees. But have you ever thought about starting your own online shop and selling products in the merch store itself?

Learn more about this topic and how we at Adfluencer.de can help you with your project.

 

Advantages of your own online shop

Influencers are usually dependent on other companies wanting to enter into a short or medium-term cooperation. Whether this offer is then interesting and above all lucrative depends on various things. For example, the following factors play a role:

  • Do the products suit my target group?
  • Can I recommend them with a clear conscience?
  • Is the partner reputable?
  • Could this become a worthwhile, long-term cooperation?

If everything is right, we will then work together, hopefully for a longer time. However, the search for new partners can be quite nerve-racking and time-consuming. You quickly find yourself under a lot of pressure, especially if this is your only source of income.

A very attractive solution is therefore a Merch Store, where you sell your own merchandising products, fashion collection or other things that are directly related to your content.

This business model offers you a long-term independence and therefore a financial security. Over time, you build your own brand and become your own boss. Since the buying process is automated, you secure a very comfortable passive income.

Especially gratifying – you earn money with your passion and your interests!

You can start out small and sell products that have been provided to you by your clients in your online shop. Because after the fourth handbag or the fifth jacket that you have received in past cooperations, the wardrobe might simply be full and you might not even use the clothes anymore. Why not just make money from the whole thing?

When Influencer market the shop itself

 

The big advantage is that you have already made a name for yourself as an influencer, so most of the marketing for Dienen Shop is already done.

Of course it is important that your products are appealing and fit to your followers. Then you just have to tease the Merch Store and make your community curious.

As soon as the great online shop is live and working, you just have to promote your products, new products, discount offers etc. on your own social media platform.

Another innovative and very successful strategy is to involve your fan community in the development of your products via surveys. This way you know what they want and stay close to your customers.

Anyway, your followers trust you and you have built up a real relationship with them over time, so it is very unlikely that they are not interested in your products. On the one hand, this obliges you to offer your community a real added value, i.e. to have high-quality products in your assortment. On the other hand, your fans will of course follow recommendations with confidence, because a friend’s recommendation always weighs more than subjective advertising promises.

Do without Amazon

 

Most online shop operators are currently experiencing difficulties in competing against the major platforms. Amazon in particular seems to be a real obstacle, as 34% of buyers in Germany search directly at Amazon instead of in individual online shops. Nevertheless, influencers in particular should attach importance to exclusivity and get along without Amazon. So rather try to run your own online shop to sell your products. This will surely give you fans some extra points for your followers!
