    So here's the deal: I have a twitter page with over 100k followers, the theme is military appreciation/patriotic/conservative. I've been growing it for awhile now and it gets great engagement when I feel the need to tweet. It's never been bombarded with ads so the audience is genuine and interactive. Yesterday I tweeted one picture that went viral and in 24 hours it received 200,000 unique impressions, 33,000 engagements, and 2,600 retweets. I know there are much larger accounts out there but I think those numbers are pretty good.

    I've wanted to do this for awhile now, but the idea is to make a patriotic themed shopify store, load it up with personally designed merchandise and send my twitter followers to the store. I never acted on the idea because I'm really bad with photoshop and haven't had the time to learn how to make my own t-shirt designs or graphics.

    If shopify sounds like too much work, we could use teespring to make quick and effective campaigns that I then tweet out to my audience. They have much more than just t-shirts now and I have some experience in the past writing up product details for my campaigns. But once again, my graphics were awful and I didn't have the twitter page to this extent. The only thing about teespring is that we can't really create a brand. My twitter page isn't exactly branded with it's own unique identity, the name makes it more of a fanpage.

    Regardless of the choice, my spin on these campaigns would be that a portion of the profits go towards a charitable organization that benefits veterans. I think that would be a great way to make campaigns go viral and would encourage people to purchase. I've seen plenty of twitter pages/shopify stores use that same spin with animal charities but never veterans. I think it's an untapped market.

    That's basically it. I'm looking for a creative graphic designer who knows how to make t-shirt designs or other merchandise. I have tons of ideas, just no skill at bringing them to life. I think there are lots of different ways we could go with it. Payment would be 50/50 so the more we work together, the more we can succeed. Thanks!
