Hello BHWers!

I see so many methods here about making money but I rarely see any methods about making money by selling Tshirt and accessories online.

So I decided to open a thread here so everyone can discuss and learn. Selling tshirt now is more difficult than 3 years ago but still profitable. Someone is making big every month.

There are many way to sell tshirts only but I only focus on running Facebook Ads. Because it make quick results and easy for scaling.

I'm not an expert or guru or something but I've been selling tshirt for 3 years so I have some experiences and want to share with this awesome community.

I will try my best to answer all of your questions. Hope you will be succeeded.

OK Let's start.

How many you earn?
I earn about 100-200 bucks per day (after subtract the ad spent). But if I hit a winning campaign, my earning could be higher.

Here is my earning yesterday with only 1 platform:

I use some platforms/companies like Teespring, Teechip or Gearbubble. They do everything from printing to shipping and cuatomer supporting. I only make design then do the marketing job. So I don't need to spend much time on it.

are you only using fb ads ..

Yes I'm only using FB ads now

Is relying on their marketing efficient? Is it profitable?

No I do the marketing. Just take the URL from them. It's some kind of affiliate but I also create design. I run Facebook Ads to promote my shirt and collect money
What shirts sell more? Those with simple designs or with extremely detailed designs?

It's all depend on your niches and your customers. For me I always sell text-only shirts which has a quote on. For my niche those quote-themed shirt sell well. But I saw a lot of people who selling movie shirts which get a lot of sales. But trademark shirts are prohibited in Facebook Ads. I don't know why some seller can run trademark ads.

So with my very basic skill on Photoshop I still can make some good design and sell very well.

Sure. Here is one of them

I used to sell job niche very well but now it seems harder than before. So I change into new niches.
The design above can be scale to hundreds of niches (job) and each design bring me 5-10 sales so you can imagine.
