    I have a couple of stores on Cafe Press-- some for clients (one is a rock band), one for myself-- just wondering, based on everyone's experience, what are the best ways to get traffic to your Cafe Press stores to sell product?

    By the way, I already tried Printfection and Shopify and found they didn't meet my needs and Cafe Press has improved alot in the past couple of years, so I'm not really looking to switch off of Cafe Press, but I would like to know if anyone has had good success with CP. Thanks!

    Are you looking to sell your logo products or your in it for a profit doesn't matter what you sell? If its the second then you should try this. Its an idea I thought of when twitter first came out but I never tried it.

    When a celebrity dies create a twitter account like 'celebrity name' t-shirts n shit. What ever you want to name it. Use an automated twitter friend adder go to the dead celebrities page and start auto adding his/her friends. While your twitter builds up with followers start posting links to your store. Make all the accessories and shirts about the dead celebrity. Like shit with there name on it.

    That is actually a really, really good idea! I will give that a try and let you know how it goes.

    Any psychic predictions as to who the next dead celebrity is going to be? :)

    There is a button for very good ideas :p.

    Hopefully that British guy from Get him to the Greek. I never really liked him.

    How do I use the "very good idea" button? Can I give it to you or something?

    You mean Russell Brand? I think if he was going to overdose, he would have done it before he got sober a few years ago, right?

    I would have put my money on Courtney Love, but she seems to have super powers, or maybe she is a zombie.
