Hello Blogville! As I’ve mentioned, we moved this past weekend! We’re short one shower curtain in the new place and I’ve been trying to decide between the 87,000 shower curtains Amazon offers. I was going to post a wide variety of the weird and wonderful ones that I’ve seen, but believe it or not the post got too long, so I decided to limit this post to one particular variety. It turns out that there are people the world over (or at least wherever Amazon delivers) who forget to take off their clothing before showering. These people need a huge reminder plastered across the biggest surface in their bathrooms. Get Naked. Here’s another shower curtain that will remind you, if you happen to be one of those people and would like a matching silhouette to aid your memory. A third version of the get naked curtain, but with a little more flourish. And a fourth. This one adds a swear word. Presumably the owner of this shower curtain will be undecided about whether or not to get undressed before showering but finally decide that he or she has nothing to lose. For those who just want the basic reminder but prefer a less ornate font. There are actually no shortage of fonts. Of course there’s one for people who suffer anxiety upon showering. Here’s one for people who need the reminder but don’t want to give up on that nautical theme. There’s even chevron! I’m sure people who buy these shower curtains have well reduced the incidences of getting into the shower fully dressed. And now I have to legally warn you that these are all affiliate links. If you happen to suffer from forgetting to get undressed before showering and click on one of these amazing reminder curtains, I will make like a penny and a half or something. I mean, it’s never actually happened but I believe I have to tell you that. Happy showering folks! One of these days we’ll be unpacked and I’ll have pictures of the new place!

I have a problem. I insist on using those excellent fabric shower curtain liners in my shower, because the home shower is a Special Place and deserves to be treated as such. So, the problem: The side of the fabric liner closer to the shower head/faucet tends to get mildew-y and gross along the bottom. (Note that this doesn’t happen anywhere near as much on the other side.) I’m devoted to those fabric liners, but I have had trouble washing them in the past, because they seem to immediately lose their waterproofing in the wash. So when I hang them back up, they’re more “fabric” than “liner”—meaning I have to trash them when they get mildew-y and Amazon a new one. So what can I do here?

Jen: Yeah. The process is dye sublimation and so this printer they will print shower curtains, they’ll print pillows, they will even print leggings if you want to design your own leggings they’ll print those. I just mostly focus on shower curtains, I also sell a few pillows with the same designs on Houzz, but again the only reason why I’m selling the pillows is because I can drop ship them, I don’t have to hold those inventories, because that would take up a lot of room in our garage.

If my shower was bigger on the inside, I’d never leave. This oil painting styled Doctor Who Tardis shower curtain is an homage to Van Gogh as well. Double nerd credit. It’s available for $17.08 on Amazon. But if you’re looking for something a bit more traditional, you’ll want to check out this TARDIS shower curtain.

Jen: Yeah, my biggest launch strategy on Amazon was getting to the fulfillment center, set up a listing and then give away enough to get free reviews. And you know I had already practiced on Amazon before, I forgot to tell you this, before I imported from China. I did do a pretty big wholesale purchase for a company that was going out of business, and so I just said you know what I’m going to use this as my experiment on Amazon.

Again, another strategy though that I did do that I believe you taught me was just long tail key words. I think that those helped me a lot. When I bought your course I had already owned Market Samurai, and so I was just trying to find all of the long tail key words that work with Amazon. Black and white shower curtains is a highly – you know stuff like that.

I have no data on this practice, but if I were to guess, I would say that most people opt to simply replace a moldy shower curtain liner with a new one. They’re inexpensive and can be purchased at drug stores or grocery stores or on Amazon in a snap. Right? Right. However, most shower curtain liners can’t be recycled, which means that vast swaths of mildewed plastic or vinyl end up in our landfills. That may not move you at all, which is why it should also be noted that cleaning a liner is cheaper than replacing it. We might only be talking about a difference of a few bucks, but why not save those few bucks and put them toward the purchase of something more exciting, like a new Chapstick or a liter of cola?

So that was the best advice that you gave me was don’t put all of your eggs just in the Amazon basket. Sell on Amazon, sell on your website, have a lot of different revenues and platforms that you sell on. So where I will spend my marketing dollars will be on my own website.

Jen: You know not nearly as much as I used to. When I started my new day job, there was a learning curve to that as well, and so I took some time off of the business, because the curtains had already been ordered and put inside in there, so fulfillment by Amazon so that’s what my focus was. So not very many hours on Pinterest .

In terms of fabric liners that seem to lose their waterproofing after being laundered, the most likely explanation is that it’s a brand-specific problem, since, like, the whole point of getting the fabric kind is that it’s so easily machine-washed. (I suppose there are other points to be made in favor of buying a fabric liner. The smell issue is a big one for a lot of people, so.) Blessedly, Amazon allows us to sort products by bestseller within terrifically niche categories like “shower curtain liner,” which means that you can pretty quickly scan reviews of the top-selling brands to see which ones hold up best after washing.

It turns out that 56% of students you’ve launched a product and have been here in the class for at least a year are now all making at least four figures per month, and a whopping 9% of students are actually doing over 50K per month. Anyway Jen runs the awesome store showercurtainhq.com, where she sells shower curtains designed by local artists.

So he finally just said, do whatever you want but I don’t know, it doesn’t look like it would work to me. So I was like determined just to prove him wrong. So I started drop shipping shower curtains, it took me a long time by the way to find my niche, but once I found my niche …

So finally I just said you know what, I‘m going to do shower curtains. But I was still a little bit afraid to import from China, so I started out drop shipping, and so I just cold called this company. I just started cold calling companies that I found on Etsy and asking them if they would drop ship, and the third company I called it was really cool.

Jen: You know what that’s a really good question. I do pick products that I would want to put in my own house, and now I’m actually importing shower curtains from China. And again I just keep an eye out on the market like what patterns are hot, what’s trendy, and then if I see something that I think might work, then I go and do the key word research on it to see if it would sell.

So I’ve had to order stickers and my mom was over yesterday helping me put stickers and labels and barcodes on these new shower curtains, but as long as they’ll sell well and I do a reorder, then they’ll do the insert cards and everything else that I want. No the quality control has been really good, I’ve been very lucky.

Jen: Yeah, I was trying to do as much free marketing as possible because I’m cheap. So I set up a Facebook page, I’m addicted to Pinterest, so I would pin everything. I took Pat Flynn’s be everywhere approach, I don’t know if he still sells, but I put it up on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest. I even put it up on Twitter, I remember my brother like texting me, like stop putting shower curtains on Twitter.
