Creative Mother Looking for Advice

Main Internet Marketing Discussion Forum - www.warriorforum.com
Hello there~

I've been browsing this forum for a few months now, and decided to make an account over the weekend.

Short description of myself, I'm a late-20's mother, who has been making small income as an artist since the age of 14.

Mostly when I was younger, I would draw a lot of anime (Japanese Animation) style art, and that was my sole income to support myself for most of my life. I still draw in this style on occasion, but I have been looking to branch out into things that are more geared to wider audiences (with money).

I love paper-crafting and stationery, so some of my new ventures involve those. My love for stationery is pretty big, but I don't know how far it will get me.

I wanted to try a drop shipping eCommerce store for products that still catch my interest, but still trying to work over my made-with-love, or packaged-with-love method I've been using for almost half of my life.

I have a feeling that anything I can produce, art wise or hand-manufactured will have the highest profit margins for me, but I don't know how long I can keep up with it.

I've been looking into making digital art products, such as printables or clip art. I have two printers and a electronic cutting machine I use to make stickers and other die-cut paper materials.

I like Etsy, but the niche that I recently dove into (planner stickers and accessories) is pretty flooded. I would love to have my own website, but unsure about how to get a lot of traffic to it either (and if it would be better than using Etsy itself).

There are many shops making thousands of dollars in revenue a day selling planner stickers on Etsy, but the amount of effort they put into each hand-drawn art work for their shop (some of them hand drawn), the administrative work, and all of the work in between just blows my mind because some of these shops seem like a one-person show.

TL;DR

Basically, my question is how can I use my creative talents to produce a lot more income per month? I don't mind a lot of hard work in the beginning, but the idea of it slowing down or some of the work being handled somewhere else is something I wouldn't mind in the future either.

Passive income is something I'm very interested in too.
