    I've found this somewhere on Warrior Forum so this isn't my idea, method just need to be scaled up, I've already seen some people selling tshirts using fb PPC ads.. I think tshirts can be promoted on pinterest too for female users.. Please share your experience here and we can try to find new ways to make some money out of these ideas, thank you :)


    "For me personally, selling Tshirts on Teespring is the best way to go about making money online.

    You can design your own Tshirts around a specific niche and then sell them to people who are passionate about that niche (For ex: fishing, sports etc ..)

    Facebook PPC is a really good way to sell Tshirts and I almost always make a profit when advertising my shirts on facebook.

    Also, you can pretty much outsource everything if you want ... from designing the Tshirt to selling it.

    Just hire a couple of people and let them do the hard-work while you count the profits.

    Hope that helps

    This is how I personally run my business and I'm making good income with it."

    Last I heard this method was extremely saturated, and hard to get sales unless you had something extremely relevant or unique. If it were me, I'd keep a close eye on google trends and current events, and base my t-shirt designs off of what's hot.

    You can make money at this.

    1. Niche traffic source
    2. Outstanding Designs
    3. Communicate with your audience
    4. Niche Designs & Niche-Trending Designs

    Ideal traffic source is a large, niche FB page, with a responsive, communicative audience.

    Solid niche : humor.

    Speaking of which... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovqM72em1dA

    Maybe you could make some "Barely Legal Pawn" shirts with a Heisenberg face on it or something, and advertise it to people in the comments of that video?

    I have played around with this method and done OK, but I don't think my designs are great so it didn't convert all that well for me. I looked around on Fiverr for someone to create some, but only found a couple... which I guess makes sense since they could just make their own campaigns.

    I think teespring is quite good if you have a good design and a viral niche.
    E.g. Robin Williams should work quite well
    Also something related to latest movies or video games.

    This method is v saturated now and FB did make some changes in approval process for tee spring ads
    it's not that easy as it used to be 3 months ago

    This is a totally saturated method, however there's still plenty of room for good designs. Just come up with a twist on a relevant niche, trending topic, or something clever and you have a good start. The next step is targeting the right audience. Ulead Pro is the best tool for finding a relevant audience. Also, I don't see Teeview mentioned yet, which is a useful site to find campaigns on Teespring. You can sort by "most sold" or ones that greatly exceeded their sales ratio. Very handy.

    I think this strategy will continue to thrive, especially given the nature of trending news, events, etc. You just need to act fast.

    I had a good campaign going for the Ferguson MO angle, and was at 32/50 sold but they removed my campaign for violating the TOS. Apparently you can't profit from a dead person, or anything related to someone who died. Make sure you know some of the restrictions like that before you waste time and money.

    Yes, especially Teeview is very good site that gives you many ideas of what will sell and what not.

    At first I wanted to go for Robin Williams, but they told me that sellers with those designs are obliged to give their profit to charity, otherwise their campaigns will be terminated.

    So I made a new design, related to an upcoming movie which will be quite popular.

    My question now, how to promote my campaign. Also how much "natural" traffic does teespring have? I mean, how many people go there and search for tshirts without coming from an ad or promotion, like e.g. people go on ebay searching for tshirts on their own without having been sent there from an ad.

    How does copyright play into it? For exampke couldnt someone sue you for using the name of a tv show on a shirt
