Recently, I had the great pleasure sit down with Shel Kahn upon these here internets and talk about making, producing, shipping, and promoting merch. And folks, I am so very pleased to tell you that we recorded our talk!
Behold, Shel Teaches Eppy About Merch!
Shel is an artist and merchwright with a penchant for the swords and the sorceries, and long time Worlds Without Master fans will recognize her art from “One Winter’s Due” in issue 2, Worlds’ very first illustrated cover on issue 4, and her comic Wolf Neighbours which appeared in issues 9 and 11.
If it’s not obvious, I’m a fan. Dabbling in publishing the way I do affords me wonderful opportunities like this to work with and just hang out with some talented folks. When Shel offered to tell me about how she handles merch and agreed to recording our conversation, I jumped at the chance.
The video is just under 1 hour and 40 minutes long, and it is packed full of practical how-to instructions and generally helpful advice, covering:
- Drop Shipping
- The dazzling array of products available
- Hawking your wares
- Seriously, hawk your wares
And it lit a fire in my brain! Expect some merch from Eppy in the near future!
Person Teaches Eppy About Thing
I have a hankering to record more of these. If you’re a person who knows about a thing, I’d love for you to teach me about it. Let’s hang out and record it! Hit me up in the comments or on my Twitter or wherever else you may find me. It doesn’t matter what your thing is, if you’re passionate about it, I bet I’d dig it.
