What is Redbubble
Redbubble is one of the leading online marketplaces where sellers can sell products with their original artwork. It works as a print-on-demand market where they take care of the printing and shipping of the products to customers.
Redbubble is well known for the variety in its product portfolio, and it’s one of the chosen markets for independent designers and artists to showcase their work.
They offer not only clothing but other highly demanded products such as stickers, wall art home decor, and many others.
Niches to sell
To sell on Redbubble, as in any other POD platform, you could use two different strategies: you can chase the last trends or you can concentrate on a few niches at a time.
The first strategy demands a lot of effort in being updated about the latest news and the memes of the moment. You can easily find this data on Social Networks like Twitter, Instagram, or Reddit.
For this method, you must develop a framework that allows you to create a design and upload it as quickly as possible. Trending topics usually fall out as fast as they come up.
The niche-oriented strategy may be a little slower in becoming profitable but oftentimes is more reliable. You need to find niches where you see yourself with the ability to create original designs and quotes with a chance to be a selling hit.
Finding Niches on Redbubble
In case you want to explore new horizons and try Niches, there are some tools that can guide you through the vast sea of topics and styles available.
In Redbubble, every design and every product must have a description and some tags to describe the design and features. Choosing proper tags is crucial for your audience to find your designs and those can be used in the title, description, and tags section.
But this could also be used as reverse engineering to find the trending niches on the marketplace. Studying other sellers’ tags to find the ones that are popular and the ones with more or less competition could be a way to decide which niches are interesting to expand our business with.
