Sticker Side Hus­tle

CLEO (Singapore) - - ADULTING -

LINE was the first chat app to open their sticker store to the pub­lic and since then, it’s be­come quite a lu­cra­tive busi­ness, with no up­front costs other than your time. Want in? Here’s how to get started. First things irst, you’ll ob­vi­ously need to reg­is­ter as a LINE cre­ator.

Then you’ll need to sub­mit your stick­ers for re­view. This can can take up to four months, so don’t make them too time-sen­si­tive!

Half of the rev­enue earned will be trans­ferred to your bank ac­count – af­ter the tech giants skim their 30 per­cent fee (pretty sure that’s why they can af­ford nap pods). Be­ing creative is hard enough, but be­ing com­mer­cially creative is next level. Here are some of LINE’s tips to walk­ing the ine line: Cre­ate de­signs that will likely come up in con­ver­sa­tions. Keep your de­signs sim­ple – each should be easy to grasp at irst glance. Stay away from il­le­gal things like por­tray­ing un­der­age drink­ing or smok­ing, or sex­ual or vi­o­lent im­agery. Don’t in­clude any brand im­agery as it may be seen as advertising. Ob­vi­ously, no lo­gos of What­sApp, Face­book and the like! Use a lim­ited colour pal­ette to help keep within the ile size limit. Now that your stick­ers are all sit­ting hap­pily in the LINE store, you need to get the down­loads.

Start with the easy tar­gets, aka your friends and fam­ily. When they use your stick­ers, their friends will see them, and you’ll build greater aware­ness.

Now all you need to do is sit back and watch the money com­ing in!
