Im seeing a lot of post about people having troubles with teespring.

Look at these successful campaigns
Captain Clutch Hoodie! | Teespring
Limited Edition - Team Makes Me Drink | Teespring

Notice the logos and the ad wording. Change it upon the niche!

    Hey,

    May I ask at what point when testing a campaign do you say its a go and start scaling it up? When you get 3 sales, 5, 10 ect ... ? And does it matter how quickly you get those sales, meaning if you spent $20 and got 2 sales do you start scaling or do you still wait till a certain point? And what exactly do you do to scale up a campaign do you raise your spending budget much higher on that particular AD?

    Thanks in advance.

      Hey J

      As with all posts I have to start off by saying I am not an expert and welcome any corrections or further advice that will indeed also help me!

      I think you need to carefully weigh up how much you have spent on advertising in order to get some sales and the profit being generated. If you are spending $40 to get 3 shirt sales then scaling it up to $100 does not make sense because you are spending more than you are getting.

      If this is the case I would consider testing the ad, the sales copy and the design in order to try and put the balance more in your favour. If you have sold a couple of shirts - Fantastic!! But if it isn´t profitable, experiment and try and boost those sales even further.

      If however you have spent $20 and sold 8 - this-is a good indication you have a decent campaign and I would immediately allow a larger budget.

      The key is to keep a close eye of the ratio of what you have spent and what you are gaining... also known as profitability J


      I currently have a campaign that has sold 3 shirts and is around breakeven for advertising cost. This to me is an indication that the shirt could be more popular if I test a variable and improve either the Ad, the shirt, or both. So, now I will continue to run the original ad, but start a new campaign using a different ad, changing the colours, the wording etc. Perhaps it sells more!!

      Good Luck!!

      Short answer: when you see a profitable trend that will multiply your profits then scale up. For example, you spend $20 and get two sales at $9 a piece and net a loss of $2. That's not enough to scale up. Continue testing it.

      If you spend $20 and get two sales at $49 for a profit $78. That may be enough to put some of that profit back into advertising and see what $50 in advertising does for you. If the results are in line and profitable, continue to scale it up.

      In very short: it's less about the number that you sell and more about the profit from your sales, IMO.

        I do agree with what you are saying, but the numbers that you sell do matter as well don't they? Because at the end of the day you are also trying to reach a certain goal.

        Now what happens if you sold 4 shirts while testing at $20 at $9 profit ea making it $16 profit, so you scale up to $50 and the money gets spent but the sales dont come as much to keep you profit, are you dropping back down now? And doesn't that also screw with FB ADS, everytime you edit or pause and resume an AD since they are delayed it seems with their stats and like to spend the money quick in the beginning? Thanks in advance.

    The hardest part with using FB and Teespring seems to be getting a positive ROI. Many times, I get sales, but the acquisition cost barely covers the margin.

    Any tips on how to optimize on the FB ad side?

    I'm already using targeted lists, down to very specific niche. Already using oCPM and all it's variations. Thoughts?

    Thanks for the reply and advice. I currently have 2 campaigns running and started them both with a $35 budget. One was a shirt and the other was a hoodie (which has more profit obviously). The hoodie sold about 3 with $15 spent which was obviously pretty good so I raised my budget, and a few more did start to sell how ever FB started to eat up more of my money and eventually it caught up and my profit dropped dramatically, same thing happened more or less with the shirt campagin. So what exactly am I to do to scale it up? Because once I raise the budget FB starts to spend more money and the sales don't come as in bulk, but it started off very good what would one do?

          Are you engaging the audience? Make sure you answer every comment like this - and include an additional link to the money page also. Here are a couple of examples that I use:

          - Awesome *USE THEIR NAME* - Get it right here before the campaign ends, just click the link - http:teespring.com............

          - Dont miss out!! There are only a few left though - Click here >> Custom T-shirts » Design & Sell T-Shirts for Your Group | Teespring......... Thanks *USE THEIR NAME*


          In each example you are acknowledging them personally by including their name, creating urgency by saying time is running out etc and providing a strong call to action.

          Try this and see how your conversions change!!

    provide us with more info. how big is your target audience, what gender, age, country are you targeting, are you using CPC or OCPM, how well your ad is written (I always write something catchy yet relevant, include price of the tee, write a short description what can they expect and end with "click here for more info").

    if they comment, I always respond by tagging them, include a strong CTA, encourage them to share the post etc. right now I am running a campaign, which is doing pretty good and through the comments people let me know what other design they would buy, so I already have a next one coming but only after current campaign ends .

    try split testing by gender and age (myself I always target 21 and above) and see what happens. watch out for CTR and engagement, try determine which group is more likely to buy.

          I'm seeing lots of active teespring campaigns with last name targeting. Anyone know how this is still possible? I thought FB changed their TOS to block this?

          Maybe it's just a matter of doing it anyways and hoping they don't notice?

              people are making shirts with common last names like miller, smith, etc. with catchy phrases, then pushing them to people with those last names. not quite sure how to sell it though as i have only seen the shirts and not the ads for the shirts. would love to know this method. ;/

    To make it with these teespring campaigns, you need to get the t shirt right and the targeting right to be on profit side. These are the 2 important aspects.
