    Teespring rings a bell, l take it that it is a site that prints them for clients, but has no traffic, (apart from the useless SEO stuff).

    Pretty hard to do with hub sites, like Graphicriver, Fiverr, etc, as redirecting their traffic is forbidden.

    So apart from paid traffic to a site, Pinterest and Deviantart and maybe Twitter might be your best options.

    Bottom line you have to BRAND your efforts... you need a website.. you need to send any and all traffic be it from social media, through SEO efforts, business cards and talking to people to the site, that links to what ever it is you are trying to sell.

    The ULTIMATE short term goal is to get the shirts printed in limited runs and sell them yourself.

    Pinterest is a great option for showcasing your designs, with a Shopify or Woocommerce site. If you also use Gplus to post images to (for link value back to your website), you'll help Google find and link to your website. We set up signsanddecals.co.nz to do a similar thing, in New Zealand, which gets organic traffic. Pinterest is awesome as is Stumbleupon for showcasing your stuff.

    Share your artwork on social media, find relevant pages, if they are really good they will get shared and sell.

    Have them posted on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Collaborate with people who can help you out in reaching a larger audience. Working with influencers should also be a great option.

    Contact the owners of large Instagram accounts in your niche. Ask them if they will provide a shout out and at what price. That will get your offer in front of a large group of targeted people.

    I agree with most people, social media is likely the best and easiest way.

    Check out redbubble and teepublic as well. I think Pinterest and Insta are one of the best options

    Build a strong social media presence, and if you do it would be easier to find potential buyers. As for now you can start with your FB and IG, do some print samples and sell it in your community for starters.

    Well build your brand page on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & on Pinterest. Interact with people. If possible take help from paid social media marketing. Just don't post too much promotional posts, do the combination of posting & interaction "woula" you will gain traffic from social media sites and possibly earn some revenue too. Good Luck.

    The mainstream way is to advertise your designs on Social medias. Facebook ads seems to be a great way to start if you have some budget to allocate.


    Good luck!

    Alright!

    Customized T-Shirt business is quite competitive in today's market. My suggestion to you is going narrow. Pick a bunch of hot selling niches in the present market. For example, couple tshits, gym tshirts, food lovers tshirts, etc.

    Now, go ahead and create 10 designs under each niche. At this point of time, you will not know the winning design. But, keep the niche constant and play with designs.

    Use SEO, social media marketing, and paid marketing to build your brand online only for those niches you selected. On a weekly basis, you can keep adding new designs. As and when you attract the traffic to Teespring, since they are interested in your niche the conversion rate will be more.

    Try this pattern!

    All the best.

    probably something along the lines of instagram or facebook to be honest.

    I think it's best, however, to go with instagram. it's easier to "not get distracted" there.

    So, for example if you contact an influencer in your niche, and have them add a post to their feed with a call to action to go to your website because you have a coupon that is expiring, say, that same day...it might me a lot easier to make some sales. You could try it out
