Teespring has been one of those topics that hasn’t been discussed much in BHW but theres some big bucks to be made from it. I have been doing teespring for a while now and its about time I shared all my tips and tricks with the BHW community.
This is gonna be a long guide as I am going to try to cover as much as I can so please bear with me. Also I am going to give out all the tools I use as well so you won’t have any issues with designs/ads etc.Okay so lets get started. First of all you will need to do some niche research. This is how I like to do it.Go to http://teeview.phatograph.com/ and choose “Only Active” and “Best Selling by Ratio” and you will get whats selling as of now. So now you know whats selling right now and you can easily design a tee design or heck just copy the text and change up the design. Its pretty simple. Well I don’t want anyone to give up just because you might have to spend hours researching so I will just give you some evergreen niches to work with.

A) Engineering
B) Nurse
C) Divers
D) Bikers
E) Tattoos
F) Celebs
G) Trends
Those are some ever green niches that will always sell and the market is so huge so anyone can get it with a new tee design and bank. Always remember to cash in on whats trending. Lets make it even simpler with an example. Right now gay marriage has been approved in America. So simply make a tee with ” Love Wins ” and I guarantee you will sell at least 20 to 50 tees today. Example –

The key is to find a design in a niche where the people are passionaite about. Also lets say you have idea for a niche and you want to test it. Its also really simple. Go over to teeview and type in your keyword. Suppose your tee idea is in the weight loss niche. Type it in and see what are the stats. Remember if someone was able to sell something so can you.

Teeview is more then enough to do some killer research.

Okay next up designing. Here are your options –

1) If you are a good designer then you can design in PS yourself

2) You can use Teespring’s custom designer

3) Hire someone from Fiverr/99 designs

I have my own team so its not an issue for me. But since you are just getting started I will highly recommend Fiverr then expand from there. If you really believe in your idea 99 designs is the way to go because remember you will only need one winning design and you will bank hard!

I know this can be demotivating as well that you have to wait to hire a designer or buy designs. So here is a pre made template pack that I bought which will work with almost every niche –

Now that you have your design ready upload it to Teespring but what is the best desciption/colors/pricing etc. No worries I will give you exactly what works best.

Description –

“Supplies Are Limited

Not Sold In Stores

Guaranteed safe and secure checkout via: Paypal | VISA | MASTERCARD

Click Reserve It Now to pick your size/style/color and order”

Color –

Black is most converting color unless you are going for a female based niche where pink is the most converting one.

Pricing –

This is not an IM product where 7 is the magic number. Your pricing has to be generic. Ideal price points are $19.95, $22.95, $24.95. It will vary from niche to niche but I am sure you got the point.

Time Frame –

7 days. It gives you the perfect time to test out your design as to what is the conversion rate and how is the response.

Now that you have your tee ready its time to promote the shit out of your tee. So lets cover the marketing aspect of it.

Free Marketing –

This is something I have seen no one do as of yet for teeshirt but I have cashed in hard from this method and it works like a charm. Let me explain how it works. Lets say your tee is about Weight Loss. First thing you will need to do is find a popular weightloss page. Then simply comment on the latest post with your tee. You can do it with a dummy account or a targeted page in that niche. Heck let me just tell you the best way to do it. Make the name and image identical to the page you are commenting on what it does is make the users thinks its the admin giving the tee. I will highly recommend the second option as doing so will keep bringing likes to your page and thats what you really want to make money from these people on the long term but anyways back to the method. So once you make a comment like ” We just introducted our limited edition ‘niche’ tee. Get it here – *link* ” But why will people click this? Here is the blackhat aspect of it.

Now you have to rank your comment up and it will stick there. A thread was shread by AnonLEO and its the best way to do it for Free –

http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh…-how-rank-up-your-comments-facebook-free.html

Once your comment it on top you are gold. You will get MASSIVE amounts of sells from there thoughout your campaign for free! For all of you who don’t wanna get into Fb ads this is the simplest way to bank right from the get go. But lets take it a step further. Once your campaign it done just edit out the comment with a new link for the same design or test out a new design. The possibilities are endless.

Paid Marketing –

Before I explain how to go forth with this. Here is tool I use to analyze my competitors. Its a paid chrome plugin that I bought but like I said I want as many of you as possible to take action from this so no one has to pay a dime. It works like a charm. You can even find new campiagns with it but what I like to do it find the most converting ad and this works wonders.

Salespage –

Its pretty self explanatory so play around with it and you will get the idea.

Now lets get down to FB ads.

Ad Creation

500px X 500px shirt on white background/ad image no border/red border

PPE (post page engagement)

Upload image to fan page and write following copy:

Limited-Edition – Not Sold In stores

Buy here=> [insert_URL_here]

Also available in other styles:

Buy here => [insert_URL_here]

Choose newsfeed only

Set ad budget to $20/day on the first day (after 12pm set budget to $10 to gain edge rank, then $20 the next day).

Kill at $5 if you DO NOT have a 6-8% C.T.R. and make sure that 10% of “Likes” are commenting/tagging their friends and sharing. Keep going if you have one sale.

Kill at $10 if you haven’t sold a single shirt. Keep at $10 if you have.

Kill at $20 if you have only sold 1 (or multiple shirts) from one single order. Keep going if you have sold 2 (or multiple shirts) from two or more orders.

If you don’t sell but still getting a high C.T.R (8%+) and low PPE (.02-.05) you know your design is bad.

After countless testing these are the rules that work best and you can be positive you will get a huge ROI if you do this right.

Target Audience

Search in Facebook Audience Insights for female rich niches as females buy a lot more tees then men.

High affinity score (no less than 30)

Age: 21-45

Activity > Ad clicks: Above 30%

Size 100,000-200,000 (scale up later on)

Save Audience

Graph Search “interests” and then click on pages for a huge list of ideas

Do not choose interests with capital letters only lower case (precise interests).

Blogs, websites, forums, reports are PASSIONATE.

Once you have a hungry audience keep showing them new shirts!

Also don’t forget to add a conversion pixel and a retargeting pixel to your campaign.

Next is scaling up

If you really want to make the big bucks you have scale up. You have to keep rolling out new designs and tweak and test your ads. Also the biggest factor to remember is you will need ONE winning design to cash in. Trust me on this one as I have done it myself. Doesn’t matter if you lose thousands on ads; that one design will bring in 10x the money you will lose. The trick is to finding new audience for your tee which is also really simple if you choose the right niche.

Final Words

Don’t be afraid of testing your tee idea. You will be surprised as to what kind of tees has sold thousand of pieces for me. You can make 1 generic tee page for all your tees or go for a niche based approach. If you choose the second option keep increasing the fan base so in the future you can post a link a link and you will get instant sales. Now go on and TAKE ACTION!

    Loading on my end. Probably a server issue. Thanks man. Yeah tried to explain it in a way so people actually go and apply this as I have seen countless times where they back out becuase of complications.

    Thanks for such a amazing guide…
    I have few questions..
    What if I put teespring link in my instagram account 15k followers will it works..?
    I’m not good at photoshop so how can I get free design for my tee shirt and also how can i ads different colours to my shirt bcoz there is only white colour for T shirt…

    I’ve sold quite a few teespring shirts on IG with accounts ranging from 30k-300k+ followers.Definitely a good way to monetize your traffic if you have targeted followers.

    Are you the man behind the burdened with glorious purpose shirt? I see that damn thing all the time because they are re-marketing my ass with adroll!!!

  5. Anyone regularly makes $ with teespring + facebook ads? Looks like its a crapshoot. Sometimes you just hit, but most likely you miss. You can check top selling shirts in teeview and you won’t find campaigns ran solely on ads or very little of them. All the top sellers are twitch channel owners, big organizations or just people with big fanpages/groups. Looks like it’s pretty hard to regularly get a positive ROI from this without free traffic or am I mistaken by teeview stats?Edit: Nevermind, apparently there are much more designs than teeview shows, browsing official teespring site is also a good idea for popular niches and designs.

    Solid model OP.Have you tried other traffic sources (except facebook) ?

  8. Good guide although just going with newsfeeds isn’t initially the best idea.. I assume by this you mean Desktop and not mobile and right side columns?I’ve done tons of testing with t-shirts and sometimes my mobile adverts are my top converters and usually come out with a lower CPC. I usually have over 50 adverts going at once with a mix of advert types and mobile do very well even with tee spring. I;ve also had some success with right side column is well depending on locations.I’ve been getting some good penny clicks in America lately, this isn’t for t-shirts though.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsGMMne8obEAnyhow good guide

    It all comes down to testing. Like I said you many burn through 5 tees with no sales but that 6th tee when it blows up you will get 10x the money you burned.

    I have tried quite a few different sources to get traffic from except for Fb. IG,lists and also reddit ads ( really cheap and no ones using it).

    For tees I have seen the ROI is best from newsfeed ads. Although sometimes I use mobile but that depends on the niche. But RHS ads have been pretty useless for me. Nice video mate. Should come in handy for everyone who are going into FB ads.

    Hey, great guide! However, I know PS pretty good but I cannot find any resolution guidelines for the image. What resolution do you use to make it fit the whole shirt? I have tried to search on my own on Google but cannot find anything about this – weird. Thanks a lot for this guide!

    Thats a great approach. That way you can run multiple campaigns and cross sell.

    The free method with ranking comments doesn’t work anymore. I’ve tried several times with different accounts and either your comment will be removed and url banned or the comment will be ghosted. There is no any chance to be ranked first on the post, u are just risking your account.Your method is solid, but getting traffic is the main problem here.Quick question. Should we add just Basic Tees or to add more types like V-Neck Tees, Premium Tees etc. ?

    It does work. Do not post a link straight away.. post a comment (can be anything, something like “haha nice post, sharing it!”.. wait a few minutes (20mins max) and then send the likes. Now go in and edit your comment with the link, it’ll stick.Also, if the comment is being removed, it might be the page/group your hitting and the admins are removing it.

    Its working fine on my end. Right now Female tank tops are killing it. And you can price V-Necks much higher then basic tees.

    I’ve already tried this even with two different accounts and the comment will be ghosted in a few seconds. Also on the original thread of the method u can find many people complain about this. Did u check how is your comment ranking from another profile?
    Because when u comment with your profile u will be on top, but just for you. Login with other fb account and check the post again. You wouldn’t see your comment at all. I am glad if u found this method working for u, but for me and many others…nope.

    I would say kill the campaign and move on to a different niche. I dont spend more then $20 on a tee unless it gets sells.

    What a fantastic guide, exactly the type of thread that I keep a lookout for here on bhw, thank you! It’s given me lots of different ideas.

  5. MrGr33n

    I set my fb ads campaign to ‘Clicks to Website’ and I got hit with $1.12 per website click which is ridiculous so I changed it to Impressions. Is this okay?Also my estimated daily reach is 22-59000 people out of 6.9M. Is this okay too? Thanks a lot!Edit: Teespring seems to be down atm or is it just me?

    What a fantastic guide, exactly the type of thread that I keep a lookout for here on bhw, thank you! It’s given me lots of different ideas.

    Anytime mate.

    MrGr33n said:

    I set my fb ads campaign to ‘Clicks to Website’ and I got hit with $1.12 per website click which is ridiculous so I changed it to Impressions. Is this okay?Also my estimated daily reach is 22-59000 people out of 6.9M. Is this okay too? Thanks a lot!Edit: Teespring seems to be down atm or is it just me?

    Your total audience is suppose to consists of 100k to 200k people.

    Thanks for the reply Nihal. Which is the best option, Clicks to Website, CPC, Impressions etc? I’m getting a huge charge per Clicks to Website and I cannot keep this option so I changed to Impression. Which one did you select? Cheers.

    This does not work as expected, especially not with gay marriage. I got 71 clicks for about $10, well, but ZERO sales on teespring. These are just likes on the fan page as you suggested, not clicks to website (Teespring). Just because somebody likes a status/photo on a fan page he won’t go to the link stated there not to speak of buying something

    Hey Guys
    I just want to say I tried many ideas suggested by OPs in Black Hat World. It ALMOST never works as the thread author describes. Either because there are many details hidden (and these are the ones that make the difference) or because the idea is patched, too old and does not work any more. It takes lost of trail and error in IM in general . So never expect that any of the ideas here will work magic for you. You will likely bare lots of costs and invest lot of your time and then the method may or may not work. This is why I never get too excited now at these threads. They are nevertheless a good source of info and discussion. I never knew for example about Facebook ad insights before I read this thread.

    And concerning FB ads, I used Social Sloth to find out that the ads that have most engagement are done by pages with large fan base (more than 500K). For those you find hundreds of shares and comments because the page is originally popular. But for the stand alone posts (whose page is mainly created to host ads) you would be lucky if you get 1 like for your ad for each 5 bucks spent.
    That being said, I believe ads should run for at least 1 month , 5 dollars budget every day to build up real likes and shares. After that you still may or may not see results and sales.

    How many designs do you have active on teespring, and how long do you keep them up for? Also what do you price them and qty for, i know the price changes depending on what your design is like, but i just mean average. I’m doing 10 tshirts for $16-18 for most of my designs.

    What I do is I add my design to different styles of clothing, so I have a hoodie, t-shirt, women’s tee etc all under one campaign. This way the buyer has more options and more likely to find something they like and so you are more likely to meet and exceed your tipping point

    I was doing some research on teespring site… Has anyone of you sold more than 5 tshirts of any one kind? How many different tshirts have you sold, and how many of those sold are more than 5-10 each?People say they have sold 2 of a kind, but unless the ordered qty is 3, the site will not produce, or deliver it.

    Ohh I forgot to mention it. Yeah different tees is a must. For example tank tops are selling like hot cakes and same goes for hoodies in winter.

    You can sell 10+ per day easily with just FB ads with a huge ROI. Just test out your ideas and backed by proper targeting you are gold. And if you need any help with anything just ask in the thread and I will try my best to help. And yeah you have to cross the tipping point.

    I don’t think it’s easy at all selling 10+ a day. I have spent about £47 ($72) now testing 10 different designs and I have good click through rates and lots of likes, shares,comments and tagging saying things like ‘we gotta get this (tagged friend)’ and ‘I need this!’ etc yet they still do not ******* buy. The prices are in line with other popular teespring products. I’m going to test until £70 and then kill this and move onto different methods of marketing.As I typed this I had another two comments saying ‘(tagged friend) You need this!!!!!’ and ‘shut up and take my money!’. I feel like replying bitch don’t just say it, follow through and give me your money then

    MrGr33n that’s exactly my situation as well. Made 2 shirts and ran 3 days FB ads for it. For the best one I have those stats:
    Engagements: 213
    Cost: 0.20 / engagement
    Reach: 4127
    Total spent: 44.88$For the post I got 160 Likes, 41 Shares, and a couple of comments where people tag other people saying ” You need to buy this shirt”, someone commented “OH MY GOSHNESS I NEED THIS!” written exactly like that with caps on. I interacted with them in comments, mentioning it is limited time only, yet nobody buys.I am a bit disappointed but will try some more campaigns.

    I live in the UK so I ran a brand new post boost overnight with a different design in the US (one day) and these are the stats:

    Engagements: 88

    Cost: £0.06 ($0.09) / engagement

    Reach: 1162

    Clicks: 98

    Click through rate: 8.4%

    Spent: £4.42 ($6.86)

    Relevance score: 9/10

    102 likes, 12 shares, loads of comments and friend tagging like me and you mentioned (I NEED THIS LIKE YESTERDAY!!!) etc, I interacted with them also etc.

    Zero sales.

    This seems to be a common trend. We both clearly have good designs, I know my niche very well and know there is a lot of money in it. The response we both are getting is very good, your share rate is incredible which clearly shows an interest in the shirt. My ads are extremely well targeted since I know exactly which interests to hit (unless you are into this niche you wouldn’t know); this is reflected by my relevancy score of 9/10 too. YET nobody is buying the shirts.

    OP can you give some insight into this and maybe give a bit more info about how you are hitting 10+ t-shirts a day? Thanks.

    Wow your stats are amazing, for the post I made earlier, forgot to say CTR was 5% and Relevance 7/10. Probably after some tweaking would be better. It’s hard to realize what could be wrong, if it wasn’t for the comments I would think the design sucks, yet people keep mentioning they NEED the shirt. Funny
    For the audience the same as you, I dig deep and try to target the passionate people, yet somehow things don’t click.I will make now about 10 designs in a niche I really know, exactly like you said, where I know the “slang” which will be added to the shirts design. Will see how it goes.

    Actually potential buyers don’t want to wait until a set number, e.g. 3, sales are booked before the tshirt is even printed and then later shipped. No body will want to give away their CC/DB details, and then wait for 7-30 days before the shirt is even printed and packaged, and then additional 4-10 days to receive their purchased t-shirt in mail. Most of those FB users who are jumping in enthusiasm initially (“take my money…”, “I wanted it like yesterday!!!…”) are not buying may be because of the above reason/s.

    Good post. I nor’ anyone else I know would want to just put their money in limbo while they wait to even see if the item is going to do well.

    Teespring works great for bigger groups, charity type deals, someone who is known. It doesn’t work too well with random strangers, especially in this economy. You’re more likely to get buys if the minimum purchase quantity is already met and they know it’s shipping within the next day or two.

    Another thing is, I have seen so many Teespring guides and been spammed myself with the ads. People are becoming immune to all the adverts on FB from it.

    Now with that said, this can be twisted and you don’t need to use teespring at all for it.

    Exactly!Incidentally, I designed a graphics for my daughter just 2 hours back in PS… she selected two Disney images, I composed them into one and did all that was needed to do (clearing the BG, resizing, modifying certain things like lighting, levels, resizing, resolution, … added a few things, and then exported as PNG. I uploaded to a site where a women’s t-shirt was ready to take the design. It asked a few things, and it was ready. I gave the necessary details and paid through online banking… All that process was completed in less than 2 hours — from asking her what design she wanted, then spending some time googling the images, then designing, etc. .. up to the completion of the payment transaction on the site.I will get the t-shirt in not more than 4-5 weekdays! No waiting for a set number of orders to be booked etc… this is how we get things on ebay and amazon. You select and order, and they give you acknowledgement of the payment. All that happens in 10-15 minutes max! The only additional step involved is the custom designing part… And with today’s advanced garment printing technology, there is no need to create screen-printing mesh etc. I am sure that TeeSpring also does the DTG (Direct to Garment) digital printing and not the old-fashioned screen-printing processes. So why do they need minimum 3 orders to set up a transaction?! Are they aware that they are losing, I guess, almost 90%+ of the business because of the needless wait for 3 customers’ orders…?Also the cost of the t-shirt on that site is about 50-100% more than what you’d see on a normal marketplace. $19.95 for a simple t-shirt with about 3 lines of text is too much imo. If they do the business like what I have experienced above, then they can reduce the cost, and still they would earn profits along with the designer because the sales would shoot straight up imo as the only hurdle, that long delay (waiting for 3 completed orders), is removed.

    When I was complete noob and I have discovered Teespring. I just took my fake FB acc. Used trending niche. I have stole design from another T-Shirt. Found related FanPages. I posted nice replies to posts and made 17 sales Maybe you need to target little older Audience who will most likely have at least paypal / CC. In custom audiences or behaviours you can also target people who already bought something on facebook.

    Well the thing is its all about who you target. Your target audience needs to passionate about the niche so much so that they will buy tees to support their cause.

    Ok, here’s what I have to offer for this discussion Like I said in my earlier post I always wanted to give teespring a shot, and after reading this post I did! I didn’t do that much. I Created a simple t shirt with a quote, joined a bunch of facebook groups related to that niche and posted a PICTURE of the t shirt. NOT the link Many people liked it and I recieved number of comments asking for a link to buy the t shirt. When I gave them the link they thanked me and said that they are definitely gonna buy the t shirt!Results : After one hour I got one sale. Another one on the next day. That’s it! The t shirt will not get printed since I need one more sale for them to start printing It’s not bad. I made two sales. But the conversion rate is really really low. Maybe it’s the price. People don’t want to spend 22 – 25 dollars on a t shirt with a simple quote.I think if I lowered my profit margin to something like $3 per sale, I would get more sales. Given that I didn’t pay for advertising, $3 per sale is not that bad One more thing. Posting on groups is very tricky. If you are not careful you are gonna get banned in no time. You should give them something they want, build authority and then try

    FB ads do not work anymore on teespring unless you have a very large daily ad budget to spend. I used different designs, different target groups, result is alway 0 sales. Also you just get likes and comments with this method, and just because you like something, do you immediately buy it? Don’t think so. Especially if you have to wait till (and if at all) it gets printed.

    Great guide.You don´t need a lot of extra details, go, test, fail and better think outside the box in your way up. This is not copy – paste = success You are not solving any problem with a tshirt, so your target have no urgency to act / buy. You are targetting fans or people that wanna showing up in case, and I think the motivation to buy from you is different. You should think about this.Put yourself on your target shoes, there is a person in the other side… would you buy something from someone you don´t know / trust? how many questions your offer is creating in your target mind? which ones are them? Can you answer all with a simple ad and Teespring LP? In other hand, IMHO you should center your targetting in just 1 niche until you make it work. That way you´ll an expert in your field and will understand wich buttons to press in your campaings.The other way for succeeding is having deep pockets to test (shotgun approach) like the one OP is showing (maybe you can be lucky if no budget but for sure a high % will fail) but I think if you have the money already, you should/will not investing in Tespring campaigns for sure… there are other better ways to make it grow.For example, think about this, why do you enter your credit card number in Amazon, Ebay, etc.? do you trust them? I think interaction, time and giving value for free first is the key. Of course there are ways to do it blackhat, so, in case, take advantage of others and their gained trust and earn your money with your selected niche.In other hand you can create trust and interact a little with your niche first to get more conversions / sales instead waiting for the magic happens. Do your research and apply it in your targetted campaings (sniper approach). You´ll need less money for testing in the end. It´s a medium term path, but for sure it will be rewarding. I don´t think magic is real, but always there is a way to profit from something that other are if you take the time… but you should find your own way to create magic! Think outside the box! 😉

  5. Op…would you mind sending me a PM? I am new here and havent posted enough to be allowed to send one yet. I wanted to ask you something about working this method but dont want to open it up publicly…Thanks alot.

  6. You know I dont come to BHW that often anymore because every idea is shot down in some way in the comments. I mean it saves time if someones method is flawed or outdated but you never know what to believe. When I saw this post on the tshirt business here it sounds really good. Basic, everyone knows tshirts and its an age old concept that will never go obsolete. Just need to get lucky on a design. Being new and looking at the instructions here though is still overly complicated for me. Im not a social media or marketing expert. All this scheming to get traffic just makes me want to give up before I even try….getting banned, creating fake accounts…who needs the aggravation? But if you have no traffic you have no sales. So we have to play this game to get traffic or we gotta spend thousands to get it. OP, how about you show me EXACTLY what you do everyday and I’ll give you half of everything I bring in? There are nuances that are simply not going to be included in this guide and the obstacles people mention in the comments here you are avoiding and getting past or you wouldnt be making any money. I just need to start earning some money here in the real world….

    Why you are just thinking in selling t-shirts only online?

    For example you can find your niche (even if you are from abroad US -there they have hot wallets /CC – like me), find an angle of attack for fans or something else and attack.

    – Choose your niche: imagine for example you select Japanese food lovers (I think is a shitty niche but is just an example)

    – Search online where sushi and japanese food lovers congregate and their passions

    – Create your tshirt (do not launch campaing)

    – Get some addresses where you can sell

    – Create a flyer

    – Go to Craigslist

    – Find someone (student) from in the city you want to test for distribute your flyers

    – Create your flyer for example with Vistaprint. You can introduce different url for each one 50/50 (url A and url B to split test them)

    – Send flyers to student home and make him/her distribute

    – Track conversions (1 to 2% = 10 to 20 sales) if each tshirt left you $ 8/10 = $ 80 / $ 60

    – Also try to create a list with opt-in and make a mobile site in order be more easier for them to register / buy

    – Test for profit with tweaking the idea, anyway, if not you have your list that = $

    Polish and test, there are many ways to sell T-shirts… not only online

    Another idea:

    – Offer T-shirt creation for clients of local business (should have some product / service people love)

    – Create an “special night” for sushi lovers and tell the owner you will make tshirts with their brand with a discount or find a way to sell it for free.

    – Schedule a time for selling the tshirts in his/her place (you gain trust)

    – Let customer buy with their smart phone + QR code

    – and so on…

    They are not perfect ideas but for sure you can tweak them a lot…

    (Sorry for hijacking… just trying to help people to think “outside the thread/box” )))

    Cheers!

    Intriguing post OP! I have never dipped my feet in this before, and you have piqued my interest. I’ve been reading through the problems faced by people in this thread. I think most people are missing the point about how money can be made from this method.I think the best way to think about this “method” is to think of yourself as a person running a t-shirt business, or even a startup. Thus, you have to take into account many factors such as:1) product development (in this case, T-shirt design)
    2) customer psychology (is the product you are creating appealing to the target market?)
    3) customer acquisition (not just FB ads, but so many methods if you be creative)
    4) conversion (can you get them to buy?)Do you realize that there are people in top-tier companies getting huge salaries for specializing in just ONE of these fields?There are hundreds and hundreds of ways to do the combination of the above, and there are more ways to fail than succeed. So it’s foolish to think you can get everything right on the first try. So the solution: keep tweaking, think critically, and hustle!

  10. Im a noob at marketing. I have set a campaign running but won’t I just get likes for that?

    So when you begin to talk about facebook ads, you say “post image to fanpage”? Are you a referring to the fake page that we made? Or another popular page?

    Any way to use Teespring without doing a campaign? I’d like to make an ecommerce store doing this.

    Yes there are quite a few sites without the campaign system like teespring.

    Ok, here’s what I have to offer for this discussion Like I said in my earlier post I always wanted to give teespring a shot, and after reading this post I did! I didn’t do that much. I Created a simple t shirt with a quote, joined a bunch of facebook groups related to that niche and posted a PICTURE of the t shirt. NOT the link Many people liked it and I recieved number of comments asking for a link to buy the t shirt. When I gave them the link they thanked me and said that they are definitely gonna buy the t shirt!Results : After one hour I got one sale. Another one on the next day. That’s it! The t shirt will not get printed since I need one more sale for them to start printing It’s not bad. I made two sales. But the conversion rate is really really low. Maybe it’s the price. People don’t want to spend 22 – 25 dollars on a t shirt with a simple quote.I think if I lowered my profit margin to something like $3 per sale, I would get more sales. Given that I didn’t pay for advertising, $3 per sale is not that bad One more thing. Posting on groups is very tricky. If you are not careful you are gonna get banned in no time. You should give them something they want, build authority and then try

    Nicely done mate.

    What about using this with something like Zazzle?

    Zazzle is also a great way to do this.

    FB ads do not work anymore on teespring unless you have a very large daily ad budget to spend. I used different designs, different target groups, result is alway 0 sales. Also you just get likes and comments with this method, and just because you like something, do you immediately buy it? Don’t think so. Especially if you have to wait till (and if at all) it gets printed.

    Still working just fine. You just need a winning design for the right audience.

    You know I dont come to BHW that often anymore because every idea is shot down in some way in the comments. I mean it saves time if someones method is flawed or outdated but you never know what to believe. When I saw this post on the tshirt business here it sounds really good. Basic, everyone knows tshirts and its an age old concept that will never go obsolete. Just need to get lucky on a design. Being new and looking at the instructions here though is still overly complicated for me. Im not a social media or marketing expert. All this scheming to get traffic just makes me want to give up before I even try….getting banned, creating fake accounts…who needs the aggravation? But if you have no traffic you have no sales. So we have to play this game to get traffic or we gotta spend thousands to get it. OP, how about you show me EXACTLY what you do everyday and I’ll give you half of everything I bring in? There are nuances that are simply not going to be included in this guide and the obstacles people mention in the comments here you are avoiding and getting past or you wouldnt be making any money. I just need to start earning some money here in the real world….

    I made this guide so straight forward that anyone can follow and bank from it. Reread and apply thats all I have to say.

    Thats the spirit man. And glad I could help.

    Post the comment in the popular one with the fake page and vote it up.

    Can you share how exactly to use SocialSleuth? I downloaded it but I’m only seeing a bunch of HTML, CSS, JS files and images. How exactly do I use it?

    Search in Facebook Audience Insights for female rich niches as females buy a lot more tees then men.High affinity score (no less than 30)
    Age: 21-45
    Activity > Ad clicks: Above 30%
    Size 100,000-200,000 (scale up later on)
    Save Audience
    Graph Search ?interests? and then click on pages for a huge list of ideas
    Do not choose interests with capital letters only lower case (precise interests).
    Blogs, websites, forums, reports are PASSIONATE.
    Once you have a hungry audience keep showing them new shirts!

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by your instructions here?

    I’m in audience insights. I’ve defined my audience based on interest and demographics (and it’s 150k large). But I don’t see anything called an affinity score.

    How do I view Activity > Ad clicks metric? What is this exactly?

    And how exactly do I do this?: Graph Search ?interests? and then click on pages for a huge list of ideas. Do not choose interests with capital letters only lower case.

    Thanks!
