How do you know when to do any merchandising with your webcomic?

I've only been a web comic artist for about 4 months now and have my work spread across various free hosts as well as my own website and obviously I'm not going to be doing this any time soon, but this has been on my mind.

How do you know when your work is popular enough to market ?

One sure sign is if people ask for it. So far I've only had 1 request for merchandise (a t-shirt), so perhaps it was only a 1-off. But, 1 person did ask so perhaps if I actually put up a store people would buy something? After I had that request a lot of people told me to put up a store, but I haven't (for reasons irrelevant to this thread). Another sign would be a spike in website visits, fan mail, etc. Anything that demonstrates that you have fans that might actually spend money if you offered something.
