Plus size Yoga leggings

Good morning - This is my Pod diary So what have we doing today,

Printify added Plus Size Yoga leggings to their catalog. 

Plus size clothing is one of the high demand categories on Etsy So Daphna thought it might be a good idea to add this product to our shop.

We created a new section Plus Size Legging created 6 new listings with this product 
Two of the products has roses print on it, and the other has geometric prints,
The products were added a week ago and right now didn't get traffic at all

I Changed some of the titles this morning, and I am going to make a Pinterest paid campaign for this product

It seems that Pinterest is working very well in the last 3 months, I don't see any rise in sales, but after I deliver traffic to Etsy I can see an increase in organic traffic inside Etsy

So can you find these products?

Since we are selling on Etsy, I went to Printify site. Downloaded the list of all products at Printify site into an XLS document.

To find Blue ocean products, I am using 3 tools:



ERNAKMarmaladeAnd a Chrome Extension which gives me search estimates in google.I took the imported listfrom Printify and searched for the product in the tools mentioned above.

What I was looking for is a crucial word with enough search volume and low competition, so after 2 days I found this list.


As we expected, competition is high for most keywords. But during the process, several long tails were discovered, which have relatively high search volume and low competition.


We look forward to seeing you on o…

Hi Welcome to our new blog 

Let me introduce ourselves

Daphna Dotan - Textile Designer for many years

Dror Arbel - Internet marketer for many years

We are the proud founders of Puralinio - A POD Brand

Daphna and I met a few years ago. Daphna launched a printable art shop on Etsy and was looking online marketing assistance. We worked for a short time, but there weren't enough margins with this kind of products for working together. 

At the last two years, we stumble into the trendy world of POD - Print on demand, which 
each one of us found exciting and attempting


POD, in Theory, is a utopia for Designers / online marketers, since you don't have to buy materials, you don't have to have to hold product stock. What you have to do is to open a shop on one of the e-commerce platforms. Create your products on one of the POD suppliers and upload them into your e-commerce platform and sell  

So in November 2018, we Launched Puralinio, and as always when dreams met reality, Well mu dear Wat…
