Teespring! A new way to make money with t-shirts online?
There have been lots of money making crazes online over the years and some pan out while others do not. It depends on many factors to the road to success but the latest craze is with t-shirts via a sight called Teespring.
What is Teespring?
Teespring is an unique approach to selling t-shirt related merchandise that makes it easy as pie for people around the world to create, market, and get paid with t-shirts. It has literally taken the marketing world by storm and generated millions of dollars for people who normally might be struggling at a 9 to 5 job or some other dreary existence.
Teespring has a simple interface and signup that gets you started right away with your own designs or help from Teespring itself. It is so simple that teenagers and seniors are finding it fun and lucrative. It does not mean that everyone becomes a t-shirt whiz but you get a fighting chance, it doesn’t cost anything up front.
What is a Teespring Campaign?
A Teespring Campaign is what the process of selling t-shirts via Teespring is called. It has a set number of shirts to sell during a set time period to ensure that there are enough requests to justify printing and shipping. Meet those goals that you set and you make money.
Is Teespring the only t-shirt company that has a business model like this?
No, but it led the pack. Now everybody and their brother is doing it which can increase one’s chances of success. Each online t-shirt company has it’s own rules and not all are ethical. The plus side is that there are so many watchdog groups that any online t-shirt company that cheats or any online t-shirt marketer that cheats can be found out quick and answer to the law.
How can I make money selling t-shirts online?
This is a question I’m often asked and can say you have to find what fits you. Look around at the various t-shirt companies and see what they offer. Check out the market trends and ask successful marketers. Be careful of the get-rich-quick-gurus who promise the stars. If they really made that much money they wouldn’t be telling people about it or selling high-priced courses.
Teespring has done wonders for lots of people and it’s not without its bugs but time will iron these things out.
