However, unless you are a skilled graphic designer with a lot of time on your hands, it doesn't seem plausible to to crank out a ton of designs to increase your chance for sales. Another key to success is to choose the right niches. You will want to find what products customers are buying, so you will also need a tool to help you find where the fish are biting.
