Is Merch By Amazon Preparing For A UK Launch?

Last Updated: April 10, 2017

In this week’s Merch By Amazon update, there’s really only one story worth talking about: Rumours of a UK launch.

Last Updated: April 10, 2017

There are a bunch of ways you could get your first T-Shirt sale for your clothing brand.

You could…

  • Tell all your friends and family and keep reminding them until someone makes a purchase
  • Post repeatedly in your favourite and most-frequented online forums, sub-reddits and facebook groups
  • Tweet, Instagram, Snapchat and Tumblr like crazy until someone finally sees and buys

The problem is that all such options smack of desperation and you probably feel icky just thinking about repeatedly doing any of them.
