Top Earner Tips
Submitting your design and launching a Teespring T-shirt campaign is easy, but ensuring the campaign is successful requires a certain amount of planning ahead. A successful campaign has the potential to earn hundreds or even thousands of dollars, setting aside a few hours each day to focus on your campaign will give you the best chance of success.
Set realistic goals. If it's your first time running a Teespring campaign and you don't have a built-in fan base, be modest with your first printing goal. Printing as few as ten shirts your first time out allows you to get a feel for the process, print some shirts and get some good word of mouth going.
Tap into the power of your network. Getting shirts printed on Teespring requires crowdfunding, and successful crowdfunding means reaching out to friends, family members, acquaintances and eventually moving beyond that. Even though it might be tempting to dive headlong into your campaign, take the time to devise a basic plan. Set up a Facebook page, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter accounts. Reach out to close friends and family members and let them know when you'll be launching your campaign. Ask them to support you by pre-ordering shirts and retweeting your campaign to ensure you reach as many people as possible.Click to Apply
