How to Setup Successful Teespring Campaigns
In today’s world, you do not need a lot of startup capital to come up with your own business. You do not need to have a physical location for your business because everything can be done online! Yes, technology has paved the way for everyone to come up with businesses in as easy as A-B-C.
A lot of artists and aspiring entrepreneurs have launched their successful online businesses on different selling platforms online. An example of this type of website is Teespring.
Established in 2011, Teespring has evolved to become one of the most popular online selling platforms for customized shirts and apparel. It is now the go-to website for people who want to come up with their own T-shirt designs and would like to sell them to the public.
If you check out the Teespring website, you will be able to see a number of campaigns that were launched by different people. However, not all campaigns become successful. Some can sell as many as a thousand shirts. On the other hand, there are also campaigns which turn out to be flops.
So, what makes a great Teespring Campaign?
Here are three basic things that you should take note of when you want to come up with a successful campaign on Teespring.
Think of a target audience and give them what THEY want
When coming up with a campaign on Teespring, you should not only think of your own preferences — you must also think of the people who would want to wear the design that you have in mind.
Before starting your campaign, ask yourself: Who will buy my shirts?
It is very important to target a specific niche that you would want to sell your shirts to. For example, to be able to target comic book fans, you could opt to come up with designs inspired by superheroes. Another example is coming up with designs with cats. You can explore different markets, but the important part is giving your potential customers what they want.
Design is very important
The main reason why people buy shirts is because of one major thing – its design. With that said, you must always keep in mind that the design of your shirt is the key to the success of your campaign.
You must always come up with designs that are classy, up-to-date, and appealing to your chosen target niche.
Communication is Key: Use social media channels for promotions
A Teespring campaign will not fly unless you promote it properly. Once you have come up with your designs and have set up your campaign, you must promote it on social media. You may start off your promotions by sharing your campaign link to your personal account. Another way to promote your campaign well is by posting on different interest groups. You can also opt to build your own Facebook page and promote it through ads.
By promoting on social media, you will be able to reach your target market and will be able to close sales in no time.
With the tips above, you will be able to create your own Teespring campaign in the best way possible. Have any tips of your own? Post them in the comments below!
Hey, really short and to the point article, I found out that people spend too much money on facebook ads and keep failing without knowing that their t-shirt design is really bad and won’t sell, people also intend to first design a t-shirt and then find an audience for it which is completely wrong, small but vital mistakes.
Agree 100%. FB is always changing. Back in 2015 summer I had some very successful campaigns using just PPE ads. Today I find PPE ads don’t work to drive sales. Instead I use PPE to test the market and see how the respond to the design. It’s definitely necessary to find the market first and design around that. Pinterest is good for finding niche imagery that people are into. Type in something like Snowboarding shirt, or novelty shirt. Then find the ones that have the most repins and go from there.
