    Hi people,

    I am relatively new in posting, but I've been around for a short while browsing the forum & reading up about different ways of making money online.

    From my understanding, no market is ever over-saturated as long as you are bringing something new & unique into the game, especially if it's clothes. The Teespring + FB Ads was relatively profitable couple of years ago and then the trend became to slowly die off from what I've been reading. However, I feel like as long as the design is unique and targetted at a niche with a demand for such t-shirts, there is still $$$ in there. Furthermore, there is very small risk involved in testing the initial ROI with a small batch of t-shirts.

    Let's talk numbers. The base cost per tee is coming out as $14.71 (front design only) for me. I assume the customer pays the shipping charges. The selling price should be between 20-25$. Deducting FB Ads, we arrive at somewhere around a 5-7$ per tee. Am I calculating this correctly?

    Of course, perhaps, having a personal brand, or growing a social media account first should lead to better conversions, however I am trying to dive in completely leaving this bit out and simply trying to give people the Call for Action from the unique & very likeable design/message.

    What is your view on the Teespring + FB Ads method? What challenges can I come across?

    Also, how does the shipping situation look like? Since the t-shirts are being printed & sent about 2 weeks after the campaign ends, does this not put off the customers off?

    It's really very difficult to make money with Teespring right now.

    But it doesn't mean that you'll not be able to do it.

    You may still get lucky and hit a home run but it's difficult to come up with creative ideas all time.

    To make it a business, you need a proper process which is quite difficult with Teespring.

    Again, not saying that it's not possible.

    I ran some Teespring campaigns recently. The engagement on FB was very good but the conversions sucked. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong so I paused everything on FB for now. I had way better results running ads on relevant sub-reddits.
