In April i started an eCommerce store on Shopify related to Pets ( Dogs Niche). I had sold few T-shirts in this Niche via Facebook Advertisement on POD platforms so i had a few idea of the Niche and decided to have a GO on Shopify with this niche.

I am not gonna explain how to Sign up On Shopify and how to set up store. It is pretty easy to set up a store on shopify. Just keep it professional.

I kept it simple. At first i do not wanted to sell any cheap stuff from Ali Express. I have put in my entire focus for selling ONLY T-shirts in Month of May which i am still selling...

Let's start with fun Proof Part :

The Total Revenue generated in last 30 days is $42,519.

The total cost for all orders + advertising expenses are $31,929.29.

I ran PPE ad on Facebook First to see the response and i was getting GREAT CTR plus Great POST Engagements. A lot of customers were saying "I need this" , I want this" , "How to buy" etc which push me to create WC ads and i gradually scaled :)

I used TeeLaunch as T-Shirt Provider as they are from USA and they ship FAST. Anothing thing i liked about them is if customer have the sizing issue they do not need to return the existing t-shirt and a free replacement will be issued. Good seller support as well from them!

How I came up with the WINNING DESIGN?

I searched on Google about the most popular breeds in Dogs specially for United States. People are extremely emotional and incredibly loyal towards their Dog breed.

I hop on to Pinterest and searched every breed related ideas :

Example of one Breed:

Second, thing i did was searched on Reddit and found Dogs related SUPER ACTIVE communities.

I went to redditlist.com and searched with general keywords as well for breed related keywords.

After looking at subreddits , I saw a post which had good response and alot of comments. OP had written a specific niche/breed related quote which had lots and lots of response. I knew that quote which OP wrote in a funny way can be SOLD OFF.

I took that quote and i saw a design on Pinterest which had Good response a lot of people had liked that design. I took the design layout idea from that and i gave to my designer. I asked my designer to create a VERY HIGH QUALITY design not just a cheap one like people provide on Fiverr. The designer did a GREAT JOB and he created a design for me which costed $60.

I uploaded my 8 PAST designs in same niche which i had while working on POD platforms just to make the store look feel professional.

Now , i am looking to SCALE to other breeds and make even more money. This Process works and will work for anyone who want to follow the same.

Keep BANKING :)

Yeah mate , research is everything. Put time in research rest things are easy if one follow the process!
 
Hey! Do you think this might work the same if I do it on teepsring instead of shopify?
Also may I ask which 't-shirt' did you pick from teelaunch? Like there's so many with different base prices. I am always worried about the fact if I choose something too cheap, the customers won't be happy and if I get something premium, I won't be able to make much profit.. On teespring there's a perfect option of a tee at 12$ which I have ordered and tried myself so I know what quality it is..

Thanks!
 
You advertise just on Facebook ads?
Yes only Facebook Ads. Targeted same breed communities related interest.

Very unique approach I must say!
Yup it is and it will work for anyone in any niche. Research pattern is 100% working.

Can I ask ?
Which age group did you target ?
21 and above. Created different ad sets with respect to age segments

It will work on POD platforms as well. However, these days Teespring have went down the hill it's not the same support we get as a seller from TS now.
Provide customer different options. District Unisex Shirt is of good quality and cost only $8.50. It's always better to provide different t-shirt variants options on product page so customer can buy as per her/his priorities.
 
teelaunch sing up close? what colors are the most popular, female or male?

So these Tshirts are just pics of dogs? That is a good niche as you dont have to worry about copyright infringement
 
Congrats on your success mate!

Could you please show us an example of the high-level design (not yours, just as an example)?
 
Congrats.

Does Facebook judge political T-Shirts as political content? Seems like a great way to get people on an email list.
 
Congrats on the success. I am trying to do something similar with Tees and FB ads.

I ran PPE ad on both Instagram and Facebook but got zero engagement on facebook but good engagement on instagram.

Now running WC on both platforms. How long do you run an ad set to start getting sales? (No sales yet:() Also anything you would advice while setting up WC ads?
 
teelaunch sing up close?
What?

Not just pics of dogs. Read the article again.

I can't search other's design right now. High Quality Design to me refers "A design which has a clean graphics and color combinations" Design should have emotional message which passionate audience will buy or have to buy one!
Congrats.

What does Political T-shirt have to do with this thread?
