    Hey, my Instagram Account has 60k followers and a great Engagement.
    I've already sold shoutouts for other "companies" and promoted their stuff but now I'd like to sell my own merch.
    Creating a Design is not a big problem I guess.. Might just spend 10$ on Fiverr for that.
    I thought about Smartphone Cases, Hoodies etc.

    When I hit 25k followers back then, I started a Teespring campaign and sold like 8 Shirts in three days or so..
    I hope to have some greater success this time :).
    Teespring was really easy, just had to upload my Design and they did all the other work for me.
    Looking for something similar now.

    Thanks :)

    What do you want to sell? T-shirt?

    Teespring is cool, but maybe you should take a look on Drop shipping w/ Shopify Apps.
    Printful and Merchify are services that help you with the manufacturing process.
    While you can eventually build your own brand.

    I hope this helps.

    Depends on what kind of account you have and what your followers love the most. Try targeting products based on those stats and start with a few different campaigns at a small level. And then scale up the one which works the best for you!

    What about spreadshirt?
    And also another question: Is Instagram still that strict with giving people temp ban for having a link in bio while using a bot?
    Would need to know if shopify or spreadshirt are allowed links for bio.

    I really like the concept of teespring and spreadshirt because I dont have to do anything besides providing the design and doing the marketing.
    Would like to keep that

    You can use your own domain with Shopify and you can add that to your bio without problem.
