Introducing JoeHx Tees - a web site dedicated to showcasing my Merch by Amazon t-shirts.
Why create a website just to display my t-shirts? Party for fun, partly to make a sales funnel. Each t-shirt has a link - with my Amazon Affiliate tag attached - to my shirt. This means if someone buys one of my shirts through the JoeHx Tees site, I’ll get a bit of extra money. Especially if they end up buying something else, too.
I do employ Google Analytics to keep an eye on the traffic to the site. I’ve also added it to Google Search Console. Oh, and I also bought the domain (for a whopping twelve bucks per year) from Google Domains.
The FavIcon - the icon that represent the site - is a t-shirt emoji 👕. Specifically it’s the t-shirt emoji from the open source project Twemoji (so it might not be the exact emoji earlier in this paragraph). I generated it over at favicon.io.
I scraped both the Merch by Amazon site and Amazon itself using custom Tampermonkey scripts - that way I didn’t have to deal with authentication.
It’s all hosted by the good people at GitHub. The repo itself is over at https://github.com/hendrixjoseph/joehxtees.
