How to Sell Sayings and Funny Quotes

Are you skilled at creating funny sayings? Why not make money with your humor and wisdom? Here’s how.

Are you a person who’s skilled at creating witty quotes and sayings? If so, you can make money with your talents. The internet has opened up a variety of ways to make money from short quips and quotes that inspire people or cause them to smile. If you want to make money selling sayings, consider these options:

Sell Your Quotes on Café Press

Café Press is an online site where you can sell your original sayings or artwork to be placed on t-shirts, bumper stickers, posters, and a variety of other items. You simply upload your saying or artwork to the Café Press site and it will be displayed on their marketplace or you can set up your own Café Press store selling your pithy quotes and sayings. Each time an item sells, you get a percentage of the profits without having to do a thing except make up more clever sayings.

Publish an Online Saying of the Day

Why not build up an email list of people who want to receive your witty saying of the day? You can profit by including a link to a related affiliate program with each email. A certain percentage of the people who read your daily mail will click on the link and purchase the product. When they do, you’ll receive a percentage of the sale. To have the best chance for success, design your quotes for a niche audience such as witty sayings about bulldogs or motivational sayings for sales people. Choose your affiliate products carefully and you can build up a nice business using this method for selling sayings.

Publish Your Sayings on Greeting Cards

Greeting card companies are always looking for interesting sayings and poems to print onto greeting cards. In fact, most of these companies use freelancers in some form or other. Why not gather together your best sayings and turn them into greeting card material? It’s best to start your submissions by approaching small to medium sized greeting card companies where the competition is less. Write to each company and determine what their submission guidelines are and what they’re looking for. There’s no point in submitting religious sayings to a greeting card company focused on humor. Buff up your sayings and quotes to correspond to what each particular greeting card company wants. Expect rejections at first until you better understand the market, but if you persist and adapt to the market, you can find success selling saying to the greeting card market.

As you can see, something as simple as a witty saying can be marketable. Selling sayings can be a fun way to exercise your creativity and make money at the same time.
