I have looked into Teesping a bit and it intrigued me. I know that Facebook is becoming saturated with campaigns galore, but i feel as if there are still methods that are out of the box type of thinking that will dominate a campaign.

I have gotten a hold of some large fan page owners and asked if they would sell me a sponsored post. I contacted over 20 (million + member) fan pages that are niche related. Out of the 20 , half of them got back to me and gave me a price of $10-$50 for the most part. I thought that was not too bad considering the audience I could reach.

What are your opinions on this? Should i mix some facebook advertising in with this method and spend close to $100 on a campaign to reach max audience?

Any other methods to use with Pinterest? I am not huge on building a fan page from scratch at this point or even an email list. But If i could somehow get cheap enough sponsored posts on a already striving fan page, then that should work just as well.

I thought about getting people signed up for older campaigns if they didn't buy one in time and wait for a certain amount of interested people to rerun older campaigns that i can end quickly.


Lets start a Teespring thread that can help out newer guys looking to sell their first 25.

    Organic reach is going to be limited even on those bigger pages. A post to one of the pages might net you a few sales, but you'd have to pay for multiple posts to make it worth your while. If you're going to go that route, I would recommend paying them to put up your post and then pay them to run an ad to their audience to make sure it gets good reach.

    The problem with doing things this way is you really aren't building anything you can build on in the future. If you create your own fan page and run paid ads to shirts on that fan page, you'll end up picking up a bunch of page likes in the process. I know you said you aren't big on building a fan page from scratch, but after several good shirts, you'll have built enough fans to where you can advertise to your own page. I've got a couple fan pages with 30K+ members that I've built up mainly through advertising shirts...You won't get that if you're paying for posts on other people's pages.

    As far as spending $100 goes, that isn't usually enough to turn much of a profit. I usually spend thousands of dollars advertising successful campaigns and can burn through $100 in less than an hour when I've got a big winner going. $100 will net you a small profit, but you're going to leave a lot of money on the table.

    Hey

    I am no expert in this but from current experience, engagement on Facebook Pages is quite low lately, even for M+ pages. Just look closely at how far your post can go before committing.

    Just my 2 cents

    It depends on the size of the page, but yes, it can be very effective

    Aside from the usual facebook advertising scheme, are there any others too look into that are cost effective.

    Also anyone else have certain niches that work as far as designs go, saw some unique ones that targeted certain aged people of popular historic dates. To my surprise, it sold well.

      What about marketing, that is a big part to selling your personalized shirt. If no one sees it, then it won't sell. What are some tactics aside from facebook?

    The first thing I would look at is the engagement of the audience.

    They may have 20million + fans but if their post is only getting a few thousand likes and a shares per post then it may not be beneficial.

    Another thing you can do (which could cost you more money in the long run, but could also potentially open you up to a lucrative business opportunity) Is to offer a % of profit from their post and all they would have to do is put a variable key at the end of the url.

    (www teespring com/?t=pageownerkey) for example.

    This way you can see how many orders were placed by their post. They could make more money and be more open to doing it for you in the future...and if the post is a bust? You don't have to worry that you wasted 50 bucks.

      Interesting way to look at it. I gave something similar to this a thought but wasn't sure how to go about it. If you care to exchange ideas, shoot me a pm!
