Teespring has been one of those topics that hasn't been discussed much in BHW but theres some big bucks to be made from it. I have been doing teespring for a while now and its about time I shared all my tips and tricks with the BHW community.


This is gonna be a long guide as I am going to try to cover as much as I can so please bear with me. Also I am going to give out all the tools I use as well so you won't have any issues with designs/ads etc.



Okay so lets get started.



First of all you will need to do some niche research. This is how I like to do it.

Go to http://teeview.phatograph.com/ and choose "Only Active" and "Best Selling by Ratio" and you will get whats selling as of now. So now you know whats selling right now and you can easily design a tee design or heck just copy the text and change up the design. Its pretty simple.



Well I don't want anyone to give up just because you might have to spend hours researching so I will just give you some evergreen niches to work with.

A) Engineering
B) Nurse
C) Divers
D) Bikers
E) Tattoos
F) Celebs
G) Trends


Those are some ever green niches that will always sell and the market is so huge so anyone can get it with a new tee design and bank. Always remember to cash in on whats trending. Lets make it even simpler with an example. Right now gay marriage has been approved in America. So simply make a tee with " Love Wins " and I guarantee you will sell at least 20 to 50 tees today.

Example -

N2YYYu9


The key is to find a design in a niche where the people are passionaite about. Also lets say you have idea for a niche and you want to test it. Its also really simple. Go over to teeview and type in your keyword. Suppose your tee idea is in the weight loss niche. Type it in and see what are the stats. Remember if someone was able to sell something so can you.

Teeview is more then enough to do some killer research.




Okay next up designing. Here are your options -

1) If you are a good designer then you can design in PS yourself
2) You can use Teespring's custom designer
3) Hire someone from Fiverr/99 designs

I have my own team so its not an issue for me. But since you are just getting started I will highly recommend Fiverr then expand from there. If you really believe in your idea 99 designs is the way to go because remember you will only need one winning design and you will bank hard!

I know this can be demotivating as well that you have to wait to hire a designer or buy designs. So here is a pre made template pack that I bought which will work with almost every niche -

Now that you have your design ready upload it to Teespring but what is the best desciption/colors/pricing etc. No worries I will give you exactly what works best.

Description -

"Supplies Are Limited

Not Sold In Stores


Guaranteed safe and secure checkout via: Paypal | VISA | MASTERCARD


Click Reserve It Now to pick your size/style/color and order"


Color -

Black is most converting color unless you are going for a female based niche where pink is the most converting one.


Pricing -

This is not an IM product where 7 is the magic number. Your pricing has to be generic. Ideal price points are $19.95, $22.95, $24.95. It will vary from niche to niche but I am sure you got the point.


Time Frame -

7 days. It gives you the perfect time to test out your design as to what is the conversion rate and how is the response.



Now that you have your tee ready its time to promote the shit out of your tee. So lets cover the marketing aspect of it.


Free Marketing -

This is something I have seen no one do as of yet for teeshirt but I have cashed in hard from this method and it works like a charm. Let me explain how it works. Lets say your tee is about Weight Loss. First thing you will need to do is find a popular weightloss page. Then simply comment on the latest post with your tee. You can do it with a dummy account or a targeted page in that niche. Heck let me just tell you the best way to do it. Make the name and image identical to the page you are commenting on what it does is make the users thinks its the admin giving the tee. I will highly recommend the second option as doing so will keep bringing likes to your page and thats what you really want to make money from these people on the long term but anyways back to the method. So once you make a comment like " We just introducted our limited edition 'niche' tee. Get it here - *link* " But why will people click this? Here is the blackhat aspect of it.

Now you have to rank your comment up and it will stick there. A thread was shread by AnonLEO and its the best way to do it for Free -

http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-how-rank-up-your-comments-facebook-free.html

Once your comment it on top you are gold. You will get MASSIVE amounts of sells from there thoughout your campaign for free! For all of you who don't wanna get into Fb ads this is the simplest way to bank right from the get go. But lets take it a step further. Once your campaign it done just edit out the comment with a new link for the same design or test out a new design. The possibilities are endless.

Paid Marketing -

Before I explain how to go forth with this. Here is tool I use to analyze my competitors. Its a paid chrome plugin that I bought but like I said I want as many of you as possible to take action from this so no one has to pay a dime. It works like a charm. You can even find new campiagns with it but what I like to do it find the most converting ad and this works wonders.

Its pretty self explanatory so play around with it and you will get the idea.

Now lets get down to FB ads.

Ad Creation


500px X 500px shirt on white background/ad image no border/red border
PPE (post page engagement)


Upload image to fan page and write following copy:


Limited-Edition - Not Sold In stores
Buy here=> [insert_URL_here]
Also available in other styles:
Buy here => [insert_URL_here]


Choose newsfeed only


Set ad budget to $20/day on the first day (after 12pm set budget to $10 to gain edge rank, then $20 the next day).


Kill at $5 if you DO NOT have a 6-8% C.T.R. and make sure that 10% of "Likes" are commenting/tagging their friends and sharing. Keep going if you have one sale.


Kill at $10 if you haven't sold a single shirt. Keep at $10 if you have.


Kill at $20 if you have only sold 1 (or multiple shirts) from one single order. Keep going if you have sold 2 (or multiple shirts) from two or more orders.


If you don't sell but still getting a high C.T.R (8%+) and low PPE (.02-.05) you know your design is bad.

After countless testing these are the rules that work best and you can be positive you will get a huge ROI if you do this right.


Target Audience

Search in Facebook Audience Insights for female rich niches as females buy a lot more tees then men.
High affinity score (no less than 30)
Age: 21-45
Activity > Ad clicks: Above 30%
Size 100,000-200,000 (scale up later on)
Save Audience
Graph Search "interests" and then click on pages for a huge list of ideas
Do not choose interests with capital letters only lower case (precise interests).
Blogs, websites, forums, reports are PASSIONATE.
Once you have a hungry audience keep showing them new shirts!

Also don't forget to add a conversion pixel and a retargeting pixel to your campaign.





Next is scaling up


If you really want to make the big bucks you have scale up. You have to keep rolling out new designs and tweak and test your ads. Also the biggest factor to remember is you will need ONE winning design to cash in. Trust me on this one as I have done it myself. Doesn't matter if you lose thousands on ads; that one design will bring in 10x the money you will lose. The trick is to finding new audience for your tee which is also really simple if you choose the right niche.

Final Words

Don't be afraid of testing your tee idea. You will be surprised as to what kind of tees has sold thousand of pieces for me. You can make 1 generic tee page for all your tees or go for a niche based approach. If you choose the second option keep increasing the fan base so in the future you can post a link a link and you will get instant sales. Now go on and TAKE ACTION!

I am getting some PMs on how to install Social Sleuth. So I think a post should clear it up for everyone. Choose extentions in Google Chrome then turn developer mode on and find the plugin by clicking upack and activate it and you are done. It will appear on the top right of the screen.
 
Just wanna say thanks man! Very informative - played around with the idea before. Think I will have to dive in and give it a shot
 
Thanks OP. Awesome method. Wanted to try Teespring for a while now. Gonna take action now :)

One question. When you comment impersonating the popular page/it's admin, don't you get banned by the admin?
 
I'm sorry, idk much... Do we need to just create teeshirt design n teespring will take care of that or we need to produce t shirt ?
 
Always wanted to give Teespring a go...this should come in handy for sure!
 
Solid share. Good job! If you have some faily big account on twitter/facebook, then teeshirts on viral topics like this sell pretty good too.

I was thinking the same thing, but I'm thinking since you're going to want to post on a popular site, you have a good chance of them not noticing. and even if they do, it will be a while. Hopefully you'll get sales before they do.
 
Thanks for such a amazing guide...
I have few questions..
What if I put teespring link in my instagram account 15k followers will it works..?
I'm not good at photoshop so how can I get free design for my tee shirt and also how can i ads different colours to my shirt bcoz there is only white colour for T shirt...
 
I have signed up on teeview, but there is lack of account settings. Also I cant find any ability to create / upload design.
 
Thanks man these is going to be handy in the future, when i will be fully prepared for tee spring.
 
Thanks for this awesome post OP. Is anyone else having issues with socialsleuth? No matter what searches I perform, I always get the same result: "Sorry, we couldn't understand this search. Please try saying this another way."

Actually the odds are very little to none if you choose the right pages. Also in case your page gets banned from that page simply create a new one and rinse and repeat.

I'm sorry, idk much... Do we need to just create teeshirt design n teespring will take care of that or we need to produce t shirt ?

Yup. Teespring takes care of everything from shipping to handling and everything in between.

Always wanted to give Teespring a go...this should come in handy for sure!

Glad I could help.

Solid share. Good job! If you have some faily big account on twitter/facebook, then teeshirts on viral topics like this sell pretty good too.

Yup. Even memes work great if the page has a solid fan base.

Don't worry about it. Just go for the right pages.

Yes of course you can! IG is another great source to get sales. I will post another guide on Teespring/IG explaining how to utilize it to the max shortly. And in the design dashboard you can choose from a wide array of colors.

Awesome share man!

Happy to help.

I have signed up on teeview, but there is lack of account settings. Also I cant find any ability to create / upload design.

Teeview is for picking your tee design. Then go to teespring.com.

Gotta try this. Thanks for sharing mate. +1

Go ahead. Post in the thread if you need any help later on.

The teeview link is giving me application error. Anyone else or it's just me?

BTW, this is amazing, yet simple method.

Almost spoon feeding.
