Teespring Tees: Make Money Designing T-Shirts Online
Are you wanting to open up your own store but aren’t sure what it should be? Did you hear about 2 guys who made $150,000 selling t-shirts on Amazon?
If you’re considering print on demand whether for Amazon, Teespring, or Printful this article is for you. Sit back, design on, and read on to discover why this lucrative business could be just what you’re looking for to be successful whether you choose Amazon, Teespring, or Etsy!
What Is Print on Demand?
You might be asking yourself, what is print on demand? Well, it’s a way for you to make money online without having to spend an arm and a leg.
It’s where you design(or have someone else design) t-shirts/sweaters/insert other clothing item/accessory. While many are heading this route, keep in mind that since it’s easy to get in, it’s competitive.
I’ve had some fun with print on demand, it’s a way to be creative and come up with different designs. If you’re not a graphic designer you can either:
- Hire a graphic designer (for little, no worries)
- Stick to content only
Do you ever see those funny sayings on t-shirts that make you laugh? Well, someone created it initially.
If you’re interested in going this route it’s a good idea to keep Google Trends handy, and stay on top of pop culture. Tune into the popular shows people are watching to come up with ideas (that aren’t copyright infrigement).
You might wonder, how do I avoid copyright? Well, for example, there are certain images and phrases that you can’t copy. Say you wanted to create a t-shirt with Disney content.
Without approval from Disney that’s a bad idea. It’s best to avoid anything that’s copyright and stick to funny or catchy sayings instead.
For example, one t-shirt that sells well is:
Coming Up With Ideas
Head over to Google Trends and type in different topics you’re thinking about. For example, nurses.
Once you do that, head on over to Etsy and Amazon to see what t-shirts in the nursing category are doing well. This is a good way to get an idea of what sells well and what doesn’t.
It’s important to keep in mind that you don’t want to copy others, you want to make it your own. Change the phrase around and the font. Make it personal.
Finding Your Audience
Once you have your t-shirt made it’s time to find your audience. Head on over to FB ads and create different promotions. FB ads is pretty easy to use and allows you to choose the gender, income, and other definitions of your audience.
Come up with your budget for FB ads and stick to it. It’s a good idea to run multiple ads and see which are performing well and which aren’t. End the ads that aren’t performing well, and put more money toward the ones that are.
Is Teespring Worth It?
Personally, I love Teespring. Great customer service, easy to design, and can easily place your designs right into Facebook ads. They also have an option where they’ll promote your products. In order to score this you’ll have to prove yourself by selling a few shirts.
