    Hello guys,
    I want to start selling t-shirts online using teespring or any other site and I think facebook Ads are the best to promote that, I'll be honest, I've never done this That's why I want to ask mmore about it, Is this (selling t-shirts) still works well? should I first start building a Good facebook page niche or just start running ads from a the new page i have? what ad should i use(pay per click, boosted ads,...)
    And actually what if i create my own brand, how can i make it grow?
    please comment anything you know about that, thaks!!

    Well, Thanks for asking. Yes, teespring still works but fb ads needs some action to take before you actually promote anything. Like get 5k-10k likes in your fb pages for social proof which will help your audience to believe you actually worth something. Also post a few orginal post , spend 2-4 $ to get like 200-400 likes and few shares which wil help as well.
    For teespring WC ads does works best. page boast does work but wc works best . Because fb then optimized your ads to those which fb algorithom think most likely to buy. I will suggest you to read a lot and watch some videos to YT to learn more. If you are not sure what you are doing, you are most likely to get those money wasted. Read a lot . It always worth it. Hope it helps.

    Good luck with that. Read more about fb pixel, audience, retargetting. Those are working right now.

    I'm not good at Facebook Ad Targeting which is probably why it failed - but I found a T-Shirt relating a fanpage I owned and promoted it - saw no sales with around $150 spent.

    I had a few successful campaigns with teespring. Only two things matter in this game, the designs and targeting. Designs can be spied on for ideas however, targeting will need some dedicated work and research.
