    I have a twitter account with a large following (100% real followers) but retweet stats are becoming lower as I grow not because my content is bad, its because many accounts similar to my niche is popping up and twitter is becoming like Facebook by filtering what tweets they show to the audience.

    OK, now coming back to Teespring marketing, I know twitter isnt the best place to promote t-shirts and I have tried in the past promoting them and I got around 3 sales, so I gave up after a week.

    This time I'm not going to give up, I will tweet everyday for as long as I can.
    I sold 2 t-shirts in 2 days and got a profit of $19, so I think I can do this.

    Here's the strategy I'm going to use:

    1. Tweet 2 times each day
    2. Design some more t-shirts designs
    3. Reduce my profit margin
    4. Discounts

    I'm new to this and know that there are many people who had success with teespring in this forum. Please give me your success tips and help me out :)

    You can try posting with trending hashtags and buying likes and retweets so your tweet shows in the search for that #

    It would be, if there would be no penalty for it. If you misuse trending hashtags, you can get penalized and excluded from the Twitter search (or even suspended in extreme cases), so only your followers will see your tweets (or their followers if RT) or those who visit your profile directly, but not people who use the search to discover tweets. Until the penalty lasts (typically 24 hrs if there's no repeated violation), your tweets won't come up neither under the Latest tab, nor under any hashtag.

    "Are there rules for trends?
    Yes, and we outline them in the Twitter Rules because it is possible to abuse trends. The following behavior could cause your account to be filtered from search or even suspended:

    • Adding one or more topics or hashtags to an unrelated Tweet in an attempt to gain attention in search.
    • Repeatedly Tweeting the same topic or hashtag without adding value to the conversation in an attempt to get the topic trending or trending higher.
    • Tweeting about each trend in order to drive traffic to your profile or website, especially when mixed with advertising.
    • Listing trends in combination with a request to be followed.
    • Tweeting about a trend and posting a misleading link to something unrelated."

    What you posting everyday? T-shirt links or something else?
    How many accs do you use and how many you following everyday? How many followers do you have per account?
    Do you have statistic how many visitors do you get to your T-shirt shop everyday?

    I'm doing something similar. I use Sunfrog, so I don't have to design the shirts myself. They pay 40% commission (and another 5% if you designed the shirt).

    I usually post one "normal" tweet -- a quote, a photo, or a link to a news story in my niche -- and then one T-shirt link. I've been testing, same as you, and so far have made several sales. I plan to automate my tweeting and increase the number of daily tweets. I think three "normal" tweets and three T-shirt links per day would be fine -- probably could do even more as long as you're mixing it up.

    Update: Sold 2 shirts yesterday
    Profit: $11
    I reduced my profit margin, so I get around $5 for each tee.

    I post 2 thsirt links and tweet normal things every 2 hours.
    I only use 1 account where I have around 300k followers.
    I get around 200 visits per day.

    Do you follow everyday? How much?
    How much you get new followers? Because orders come from new followers, isnt it?
    How did you get 300K?
    From those 200 visits how much orders? from those orders how much real $? For example you get 10 orders and only 1 was real ( from which you really get money)

    I can't speak for the OP but as I said, I'm using Sunfrog to do the same method. All of my orders are real sales so far. And I make about one sale per 200 views in my T-shirt collection. It's a pretty good method, just need to increase my tweeting.
