    Hi CertificationsXpert. I've been in the POD space for a little bit myself now, I haven't found much success with paid advertisement though. However I'm almost at 100 sales, which will allow me to create my first LAA based on purchasers. Some people are telling me to wait for 250-500+ before messing with LAA's though. What do you think?

    I don't know if that was asked already but do you document how many of your customers are recurring ones?

    Great achievement!

    I just want to ask you when you create your WC FB campaigns which one of the following objectives do you use? VC,ATC or Purchase? Also when you don't have enough data to create a LLA audience, because with a PPE campaign for 3 days and a new FB page you can't collect enough data with a 3 days PPE campaign how do you start your WC campaign? Using the same interest as you used in your PPE campaign?

    Wish you all the best!

    I started my campaigns and all my engagement is coming from Instagram

    Teespring isn't the same which used to be 2 years ago.... But Good Luck to you if you try on TS though :)

    I created my LAA based on purchasers after i got 400+ sales....The more data better your LAA will be...

    I'm sending emails to past customers and getting 34% open rate as well as 5 to 7% conversion on average on majority of the emails and have been making good income...

    The first LAA i made was from purchasers which is still giving me GREAT return. I've also tested LAA from ATC but results were down as compare to buyers one. Right now my niche page has over 12,000 Likes even though i never ran any ad for likes...

    Yes, when i moved from PPE to Website Conversion objective advertisement i used the same interest and everything just changed the objective so Facebook algorithm try to find more buyers rather than to find clickers and likes for post engagement.

    I haven't tried paid ads on instagram yet but i am thinking to start doing it before BFCM!

    Thank you for your answer. I just have a few more questions regarding the Facebook ads you have used.

    You have said that after you have seen a success with a PPE ad you have moved to conversation ads based on the 6 sales and great engagement. What objective did you use in your first conversation ads? View Content, Add to cart or Purchase? Did you use the same ad creative you used for your PPE ads or you created a new one?

    Is it possible to describe briefly your step by step ads optimization till you got 400+ sales and created a LLA from purchase? Which conversation objective/s did you use, different ad sizes and so on?

    I will be really thankful to receive such of information!

    WC means website conversions. WC ads = ads that are charged per website conversion.

    Wow, this is a great and simple guide for this. You should make a course on this on Udemy. I used to make shirts using a heat press and on Amazon merch and they both went nowhere. I may try this guide! Thanks.

    Hi OP,

    You mean you are doing follow:
    1.Find popular breeds
    2. Find a hot quote relate to dogs or something
    3. Pass the image and quote to designer, he will make both as graphic and send you one graphic + One prototype picture.
    4. You upload the prototype picture to shop and run FB ads.
    5. When you got orders, you pass the graphics to TLaunch, they will print the T and send to your customers.

    Are above steps are correct ? Let me know if I missed something.

    Thanks.

    Facebook sends BS traffic. I got an ad with 1,000+ likes, comments like "I must get this", relevance score 10, CPM $3, CPC $0.55 ..... aaaaaaaaand .... ZERO sales. Not even atc.
