Introducing the Artist: Chris Dyer (Video Interview)

Posted by Juan Caminero on

RageOn sat down with Chris Dyer to unpack the artist’s colorful background. Now well-known for his visionary artwork, he shared some details surrounding the lesser known challenges he had to overcome with gangs and alcohol as well as the circumstances that led to him discovering a spiritual path.

Dyer has traveled across the world, spending six months in Asia, exploring seven different countries, and even spending one Christmas morning in a volcano. Even during these adventures, his art and the documenting of his trips through creative expression remain the focal point of his journey. When asked what keeps him going, Dyer explains “This is who I am”. To Chris, there is no option other than doing what what makes you happy. It’s an idea he encourages others to pursue.

Listen to the full interview below and learn about Chris Dyer’s amazing new stickers that can be used for your RageOn app creations!

Introducing the Artist: PopCouture

Posted by Juan Caminero on

RageOn is proud to welcome PopCouture to our family tree of brands!  PopCouture is a lifestyle brand that translates pop culture trends into fashion pieces for obsessed music, movie & TV fans. Aside from unique depictions of your favorite personas you'll find creative movie posters and beautiful multi-media collage art. Scroll down for an exclusive interview with artist and brand owner Paul Martin. 
Tell us a little about yourself and your art? 
I’ve been around art and artistic people my whole life. My grandmother was an amazing figure artist and my mom was a professional Calligrapher, so I caught the bug early. I can remember back in Junior High School, I drew a portrait of Michael Jackson and everyone flipped out. There were copies of it all over school the next day, kids were making requests…it was cool. Soon after that, I started painting jean jackets for all the kids - album covers and things like that - this is when I realized I could make some good money with art.

What inspires you?
I’m a huge music and movie fan - as you can probably tell from my shop.

You left a similar drop-ship service to join RageOn. Why?
I wasn’t thrilled with the quality of their printing, and their app is a bit clunky. Also, they had very poor customer service. The difference between RageOn and them is night and day.
 
What do you love about Shopify?
They make everything that’s scary about e-commerce super easy. You can have a basic store in no time.
 
What is your favorite aspect of RageOn Connect?
The speed and ease of use is unreal. You can create and add products in 2 minutes…literally.

What are your plans to boost sales?
Social media. Paid and organic. Share. Share. Share. Also, become very active on the RageOn! app/site, liking and following the artists that I like.
 
Why did you decide to keep your RageOn Marketplace Store even after you launched your own Shopify store? (popcouture.com)
I think it is important to maintain a web presence for a number of reasons.
 
What is your favorite feature of the RageOn platform?
I’m still new here, but I love how easy everything is to use, and I love the social/community feel of RageOn!

What is your number one piece of advice for up and coming artists that are looking to monetize their work?
Continue to develop your craft and use the power of the internet to get your work seen.

5 Effective Marketing Tools For Promoting Your RageOn Store

Posted by Juan Caminero on

As a RageOn user, your success is important to us! Here's a few weapons that you can use to increase sales and raise awareness about your RageOn store! 

Mail Chimp


MailChimp is an email marketing platform that's easy to use and directly integrates with Shopify. The drag and drop interface means you won't need to be an experienced coder. Just add emails to your list and start re-engaging. 

You can even use Mailchimp to automate your cart abandonment emails to re-engage and capture those potentially lost customer!

 

Hootsuite


Hootsuite allows you to manage multiple social media accounts (up to 3 on the free version) all from one place. Our favorite features include analytics, scheduling, and free social media courses. It even integrates with MailChimp! 

 

Facebook Ads


With the right guidance, Facebook Ads can become the bread and butter of your marketing campaign. The Ads Manager allows you to pick a budget, filter demographics, and target users with specific interests related to your products. You'll need to do a bit of research but this is a sure fire way to generate leads. 

Don't forget to use Dynamic Ads to retarget customers that previously visited your Shopify store to get them to buy (again)!

 

Canva

While Photoshop is the industry standard, Canva provides marketers with zero design background the ability to create simple professional looking graphics. This free software features templates for social media, newsletters, and more! 

 

Bitly


Bitly is a handy tool that shortens, brands and optimizes your links across the web. You'll have the ability to view individual link analytics, gather audience intelligence, and measure campaign performance all in one location.

Woo-hoo! You're all set.

Give a Professional Athlete Startup Advice!

Posted by Mike Krilivsky on

Give a Professional Athlete Startup Advice!

Bryan Jasmin, a professional athlete, reached out for advice on his startup idea.

I really enjoy giving back the knowledge that has enabled me to build a multi-million dollar business with 450,000+ users, raise millions of dollars in financing, and empower people in 118 countries to make millions of dollars for themselves by creating new and incredible products easily! :)

I’ve recently been asked to be a Mentor @ Alchemist Accelerator and I want to make sure that I can give the best possible advice back to entrepreneurs. I dedicated some time to listen, ask questions, and then give feedback to Bryan. Please feel free to comment with any ideas on what I could do better or anything in general.

#neverstoplearning

Thank you!

Mike Krilivsky

-----

Hey Bryan,

It was awesome speaking with you and learning more about you today. I hope our talk was enlightening and that you’re more knowledgeable and excited now than before we talked!

My understanding is that you have an idea - An app - “Uber for Personal Training.” You’re an experienced, professional athlete, know a problem that exists, have an idea of how to fix it with app technology, and want advice on next steps. However, you do not have the technical skills to build it, only the product knowledge, experience, and passion for the space and idea. Here’s some ideas on where to start:

Step 1. Market Research

Research ALL the potential competitors on iOS, Android, and Web. Fully learn the market! Do not skimp on this step! The more you know, the smarter you can plan your future!

Step 2. Make a Decision

  1. Your idea doesn’t exist, and you think you have an “unfair competitive advantage,” then go for it!
  2. Your idea does exist, don’t go for it and think of another idea :)
  3. Your idea kind of exists, so you have to analyze and make a decision
    1. Maybe you build a different and better version of what exists?
    2. Maybe you team up with an existing company and get in early so you can make a significant impact?
    3. Maybe you decide not to do it because too many others are doing it and they have better resources than you do at the moment
    4. Think deeply about your “unfair competitive advantage” and make sure that it can’t easily be replicated

Additional Knowledge


Companies are usually 1 of 2 formats:

  1. Solo Founder - Facebook - Mark Zuckerberg - Product Vision AND Technical ability to build his product
  2. Dual or More: Apple - (Product Vision / Sales ) Steve Jobs CEO & Co-founder / (Technical / Builder) CTO & Co-founder Steve Wozniak

You’ll need to think about getting your “Steve Wozniak” or joining a team that may have 1 or both of the players that you need.

Remember, the world needs more great early employees! You may be able to find a company that’s already doing your idea or something similar and you may have the opportunity join a company that already has a "Steve and Steve" and be totally happy! That’s for you to think through!

24/7 Mentality

Great founders enjoy living and breathing their business. You’ll have to make many personal sacrifices that ordinary people think are insane and don’t want to make. Make sure that you’re mentally, economically, and physically ready for something like that.

Engineering/Development

  • You might want to think of giving up to a significant percentage of equity to a “CTO & Cofounder” at an early stage if you truly need the other person to build what your company will be
  • Market rate for good/great full time developers/engineers: (junior) $60k-$90k, (mid) $80k-$120k, (senior) $100k -$200k / yr (or more) + equity
  • Bigger companies will give $250k-$1m / yr packages to great engineers

If you have a small amount of money $20k-$50k, you might be able to start someone or a web contracting company, but beware of lesser expensive options because they could build bad code that may not be “tweakable” or scalable and may only work with a pre-defined scope.

Great Movies to Watch

Startup Incubators

Advisor or Mentor

Get an advisor or mentor in your area that enjoys your idea! Some may be willing to help you for free, some may want a small % of equity to give you their time and expertise. I have several and they are typically compensated with equity. Alternatively, if you are able to land solid investors, you can develop good relationships with your investors and they can become good advisors.

Marketplaces are tough!

They are 2 sided - sellers and buyers, think about both - always understand that getting enough supply and demand is one of the biggest struggles when building a marketplace! 

Intros

Resoltz - fitness platform - Eugene / Guy, if you want intro, let me know.

If you get a budget and want to be introduced to engineers, I can make a couple of intros

Bryan Jasmin Merchandise!

Let’s talk about this - https://www.rageon.com/products/bryan-jasmin-a-legend?aff=z8er

Let me know if there is any way I can help you build awesome merchandise for you, your friends, or other professional athletes!

Summary

I hope this was helpful Bryan! Please keep me in the loop on what you end up doing! Feedback along the way will help me learn how I can help other entrepreneurs best! Enjoy!

Kind Regards,

Mike

RageOn's Affiliate Program is HERE!

Posted by Juan Caminero on

Share ANY product. Make 15% commission of every sale.

RageOn has some exciting news! We've rolled out a brand new Affiliate Program that will allow anyone to earn $$$ just by sharing! Here's how to get started: 

1. Create An Account

All you'll need to get started is a RageOn account! Sign up or Log in here to receive your unique affiliate code and start tracking sales on your dashboard. 

2. Share Your Link

When you become a RageOn Affiliate, we will automatically generate links that are unique to you on each product page. Share any product to your socials, email, text - literally anywhere to find people to purchase the products you promote.

3. Earn 15%

You'll earn 15% commission on any purchase that comes through your link within 30 days. If someone clicks on your link and doesn't purchase at first, you will still get credit for the purchase if they come back to RageOn later. Little effort, big reward!

----------------

Share from any product page!

Once logged in, share using the Social sharing options on each product page, or copy and past the link. Example:

OR

Add "?aff=YOUR-CODE" (unless the url already contains a "?", then add "&aff=YOUR-CODE" instead) to any rageon.com url to create your affiliate link. You make 15% of anything someone purchases that comes through your link within 30 days.

Monitoring your Affiliate Sales is simple!

On your dashboard, under Transactions, there is an “Affiliate” section where you can track all sales that come through your affiliate links. You can cash out via PayPal in your profile once your earnings are greater than $50 and it's been more than 30 days.

Were you a member of our previous Sponsored Brand Rep program? No problem! 

We are transitioning all of our RageOn Sponsored Brand Reps to be RageOn Affiliates. This means that we will no longer be using Refersion to track any sales. There will be no need for exclusive discount codes, because now you’ll have unique product URL’s! All sales will be tracked through the RageOn dashboard. You will now be able to grab live discount codes from our newsletters or social media and your fans can use them too! Unlike our previous program, this allows affiliates to benefit from all of RageOn's huge storewide sales and promotional offers. 

Let's do this!

If you have any questions regarding the Affiliate Program or the best ways to market your link on social media, you can always send an email to info@rageon.com for assistance. We've worked hard to make this program straight forward and easy to use, but we're never too busy to answer questions or hear your feedback! 

As a final note, we would like to thank each and every member of the RageOn family for supporting us in this exciting new project! This Affiliate program is a giant step in a new direction that we hope will empower creators and give our fans more amazing opportunities to earn cash and spread some RageOn love. :)

Top Sellers' Secrets Revealed!

Posted by Juan Caminero on

 

Once you've created your own custom all-over-print brand with the RageOn app or Custom Creator, the next step will be learning how to properly market your designs and maximize profits! 

We've compiled a list of the most effective methods used by our top selling brands to generate healthier sales!

Here's a quick checklist that you can reference when getting your products ready: 

1. Actively sharing your designs on social media will be your greatest tool for promoting your store! Post fun and interesting content along with products in order to draw attention to your page. Include the link to your store inside all posts and social media bios. 

2. Make sure your images are properly aligned on the mock up before making a product live on your store. Be sure to carefully check your previews and adjust the file if necessary. Professional looking products are key and will help attract consistent purchasers. 

3. Be sure to offer a variety of products (T-Shirts, Pillows, Sweaters and more) in order to round out your product mix. You are automatically prompted to do this with each new product post. 

4. When you make a new design, tell people about it. The best way to get your first sale is to notify the people already familiar with your work.

5. Create a banner to give your brand an official look and feel users will gravitate to. If you have a website, be sure to link to your RageOn store or products. 

6. Before you say a word about your product, you have to know what you are selling. It's important to talk about the quality of RageOn clothing and know the answers to common questions related to shipping, fabric, and pricing. Visit our FAQ section to get a better idea of what customers want to know.
