Tell Me What Sites To Use!
I’ll do you one better. I’ve installed a super helpful browser extension called Keywords Everywhere, that tells you important info about browser searches, like the Search Volume (the average amount of searches for that keyword phrase per month over the last 12 months), the Cost per Click (the amount that advertisers are paying for 1 click of this keyword in Google adwords), and Competition (a gauge of the number of advertisers that are running ads on Google adwords for this specific keyword). We are gonna mainly consider the Search Volume for this article, because we are concerned with what users are doing.
I’ve researched 11 of the most popular Print-On-Demand websites around (as at July 2019), and have compared the Search Volume for their name in Google. We can use this info to see which site is getting searched for the most… which means more eyeballs on the site, and potentially more sales for you!
Take all this info with a grain of salt. Make sure the aesthetic of the site suits what artwork you want to upload. And have fun!
TeeFury comes in tenth place with 33,100 searches per month.
I have tried a couple of times to submit art to TeeFury. Each artwork has to be approved, rather than the blanket approval offered by sites like Redbubble and Threadless. And sadly, they have not accepted any of my art yet. You have to be really good to meet their standards.
In 8th place is a store I have some big love for, Threadless. At 60,500 searches per month they’re doing alright.
Got to say I love the design competitions they have running all the time because they’re a great idea and creativity generator! And my store has generated about $100 in two years of activity.
Number seven, with an appropriate 77,000 searches per month, is Society6. One thing I really love about this site is the weird and wonderful range of products they have. Where else can you get a custom printed credenza?
I have made a few dollars from Society6, including affiliate links, so tif you have a blog and can promote others art, that may be an option to consider.
Now we’re into our top five, peoples! Here’s the ones you really need to consider.
At number 5 we have Design By Humans with 90,500 searches per month.
I have not used this site or made an account.
At 110,000 searches per month, CafePress proves that a company that started in the last century can still kill it in the 21st Century.
This is one another I have not used or made an account on, so I can’t say much about its quality.
Sound the trumpets! Launch the confetti rockets! Redbubble is our winner with 1,220,000 searches per month. One point two million! That’s gotta be a lot of eyeballs on your art!
I’m glad this research confirms my suspicions, that I’m totally using the right site for me and my artwork to get exposure. Redbubble’s advertising is everywhere, their upload process is as smooth as butter, and I’m making good money from product sales.
