Hi, my name’s Linda Matthews and I’m a digital and mixed media textile artist. For over ten years I’ve run my own full-time business developing online classes and associated digital products. Several years ago I started CreativeArtnSoul as a side business, blogging and selling creative journaling printables. This part of my business has grown quickly and has now become my full-time business.
Building an online printables business is probably one of the best things I’ve done business-wise. There is no inventory to worry about, it’s creative and fun, and every day I get to design and create things that people love to use in their own creative way. Best of all – I don’t have anyone telling me what I can and can’t do – I am my own boss.
Setting up a successful printables business definitely has a learning curve at the beginning because you have to learn about managing your own website and online store, as well as learning how to design high quality printables to sell. It takes a lot of work to get things up and running, but once things are set up and systems are in place, it definitely gets easier.
The hard work is worth it though in the end. What’s not to love about creating best-selling printable products that sell over and over again, making money while you sleep.
The best thing for you however, is that you don’t necessarily have to have a natural talent for this because everything can be learned.
If you’ve ever had the desire to have your own creative business, in this series of articles I’m sharing what I’ve learned over the years so you can also learn how to set up and grow your own successful creative printables business.
I’ll be adding more articles in the coming months so check back regularly!
