Couch Potato Strategy For Online Profits

If you could use an extra $20 – $500 bucks a month to pay a few bills and make your life a little easier, then this online money making strategy might be for you. The key to this strategy is to pay close attention to what is trending on TV and other media outlets.

Design Simple T-Shirts And Make Money

I’ve known about this strategy for a couple of months and have to admit…this is one of the most easiest strategies for making money online that I have seen. It requires;

  • No Facebook Ads
  • No Classified Ad Posting
  • No Website
  • No SEO

If you have a TV and you can keep up with the current trends by listening to what is going on around you, you can do this. It’s the most newbie friendly way to start making extra cash online and you can even scale it up to a full time income if you do it correctly.



The Strategy

Do you remember seeing a T-shirt with a bulls-eye overlaid on a picture of Osama bin Laden? Well, the guy who created that shirt made $100K in less than a week. Depending on the niche you choose, it’s very possible that you could jump on a trend and do the same.

Let’s get started

The first step is to set up an account with an online T-shirt company called There are many T-shirt companies out there but I’ll use as my example. It’s pretty simple actually; first, name your store, type in a description of your store and enter in some tags (use good keywords). Now, this is very important – Enter a price in the “Default Commission” area. This is YOUR commission you will receive on each shirt sold.

Also, you can create as many “shops” as you like. Get yourself familiar with the site and take a look around at what others are doing. The themes are endless; Baseball, Football, Political, Popular TV Shows, Movies…anything that’s tending and making the news now.
