1. Define Your Unique Style and Niche

Before diving into the world of selling planner stickers, it’s crucial to define your unique style and niche. Take time to explore different sticker designs, themes, and aesthetics. Discover what makes your stickers stand out from the competition. Are you drawn to minimalist designs, cute illustrations, or elegant typography? Identify your target audience and understand their preferences. Finding your unique style and niche sets the foundation for your brand identity and helps you attract the right customers.

2. Design and Create Irresistible Sticker Collections

Creating captivating sticker collections is at the heart of your sticker business. Invest time in designing stickers that resonate with your target audience. Focus on creating unique and eye-catching designs that stand out in the crowded marketplace. Experiment with color schemes, patterns, and typography to bring your ideas to life. Pay attention to details like sticker quality, materials, and durability to ensure customer satisfaction. Remember, your stickers are not just products; they are artistic expressions that inspire and delight.

3. Set Up an Online Shop

To sell your planner stickers effectively, you’ll need an online storefront. Choose a platform that suits your needs, such as Etsy, Shopify, or your own website. Create a visually appealing and user-friendly store that showcases your sticker collections. Invest time in crafting compelling product descriptions, high-quality product images, and clear pricing information. Make it easy for customers to navigate your store, find what they need, and make purchases securely. Your online storefront should reflect your brand identity and create a seamless shopping experience for your customers.

4. Get Social!

Building an engaging online presence could be essential for growing your sticker business. Leverage social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest to connect with your target audience. Share sneak peeks of new sticker designs, behind-the-scenes glimpses of your creative process, and engaging content related to planning and organization. Engage with your followers, respond to comments and messages promptly, and build a community around your brand. A strong online presence helps you build brand recognition, gain followers, and attract potential customers to your online store.

5. Embrace Marketing

To successfully sell your planner stickers, you’ll need to develop strategic marketing strategies. Consider running targeted online advertisements, collaborating with influencers in the planning community, or offering exclusive promotions and discounts. Create compelling content such as blog posts, tutorials, or videos that provide value to your target audience. Utilize email marketing to build a loyal customer base and keep them updated on new releases and special offers. By implementing a variety of marketing strategies, you’ll expand your reach and attract customers who are passionate about planning and sticker art.

6. Provide Outstanding Customer Service

One of the keys to a successful sticker business is providing outstanding customer service. Ensure your customers have a positive and memorable experience when purchasing from you. Respond to inquiries and messages promptly, address any issues or concerns professionally and efficiently, and go the extra mile to exceed expectations. Deliver orders in a timely manner and ensure that your packaging reflects the care and attention you put into your stickers. Building a reputation for exceptional customer service not only generates repeat business but also fosters positive word-of-mouth recommendations.

7. Engage and Collaborate with the (Amazing!) Planning Community

The planning community is a vibrant and supportive space, and engaging with it can significantly benefit your sticker business. Participate in planner-related events, join online communities and forums, and collaborate with other planners and sticker enthusiasts. Host giveaways, contribute to planning challenges or collaborations, and provide valuable insights and content. By actively engaging with the planning community, you’ll expand your network, gain exposure, and build meaningful relationships with fellow planners and potential customers.

Who can make money selling stickers?

It’s so easy for so many to get started and make and sell stickers online! You might want to make a little extra cash to subsidize your sticker-buying habit, make it a part-time income or even a full-time business.

Or, perhaps you want to add a line of making stickers to sell to your existing shop.

Or are you a graphic designer who wants to find a new way to sell your beautiful designs?

That said, you don’t need to be an artist to make and sell stickers – I wasn’t and I’ve sold thousands of them! You can still create stickers by using pre-made templates (I sell them here) or by hiring an artist or designer to create stickers for you.

When it comes to finding a place to sell stickers, you can choose from Etsy, Redbubble, Shopify, WooCommerce and more.

The 3 Types of Planner Stickers

Who knew there were so many different kinds of planner stickers! Here are the main three:

Printed Planner Stickers

If you’re selling printed planner stickers, you’ll be designing, printing, cutting and posting them to your customers.

Printable Planner Stickers

For printable stickers, after you design them, you’ll send your customers particular files so they can print and cut them themselves at home.

However, you won’t send them your original files! Firstly, they’ll be very large in size and secondly, they’ll be able to edit and adjust the sticker designs – which can cause issues when using them.
