Want to earn more on FishTips? Whether you're an experienced seller or just getting started, these tried and true tips will help you maximize your earnings on FishTips.com!

Complete Your Profile, and Make It Look Great

Did you know that over 50 million fishing licenses are sold in the United States every year? The market is huge, and that means that even if you have a large online following many anglers looking to purchase tips will not know who you are. You need to be sure your profile outlines your experience, accolades, and instills confidence in why what you’re selling is incredible valuable. Be sure to include links to tournament results, social media accounts, and other digital assets that highlight who you are, and why you’re a good seller. Finally, make sure to complete your entire profile including adding your home bodies of water- this will enable you to stay up to date with new tip requests from anglers ready to make a purchase.

Harness the Power of Social Media

We’ve seen it over and over again: sellers who leverage their social media channels see more success on FishTips. People who already know you are significantly more likely to buy from you. Make sure to share not just what's in the tip, but also why you believe it will benefit your fellow anglers. By spreading the word through your social networks, you'll attract more potential buyers and create a buzz around your offerings.

It’s really easy to share after you create each tip. If you need more details check out this video:

Keep the Supply Flowing

Don't be disheartened if you’re not an immediate success. Persistence pays off. Take inspiration from Jordan Sypeck, who posted a whopping nine tips before making his first sale. He sold twelve copies of his tenth tip!

We've seen tips that are six months old still finding eager buyers. By consistently building a supply of valuable insights and tips, you're building a treasure trove for fellow anglers. Buyers will naturally gravitate towards your offerings over time as you continue to build your presence on the platform.


Even “Bad Days” Can Yield Useful Information

You learn a lot each time you hit the water. Even if your day didn't meet your expectations, remember that catching a fish means you've discovered something valuable for someone. It's a golden opportunity to post a tip! And even if you didn't reel in a fish but had some promising bites, don't hesitate – post a tip about that too!

Fish More, Earn More

Lastly, here's a simple equation: more fishing equals more tips, and that means more fun and more money in your pocket. Embrace the joy of fishing and let it be your guide to success on FishTips. The more you immerse yourself in the angler's world, the more insights you'll gain to share with your fellow fishing enthusiasts.

Let’s Sum it Up

Selling on FishTips is not just about making money; it's about contributing to a vibrant community of anglers. By promoting your offerings on social media, maintaining a consistent supply of tips, and sharing your insights, you'll not only find success but also help your fellow anglers have more enjoyable and rewarding fishing experiences. Tight lines!
