I've been testing a new campaing for 1 day.

Below are the facebook ad stats so far.

I've made 0 sales so far. I bought one for myself to create some social proof, but still no sales.

I got 3 ads going @ $5 a day for testing purposes. Each ad is targeting different interest groups.

How does the progress look so far? Should I ditch the campaign?

Or does this look promising enough for me to put more money into the ads?



The post on my facebook page itself, which the ad is advertising has gotten the following:

    Is my CTR good?

    What do you think I should do from here?

    Still no sales yet.

    Honestly, it may depend on your design. People like good designs, and if your design isn't that good or is visually unappealing, people are less likely to buy.

    On the other hand I could have to do with your marketing. Perhaps you should more research on your potential audiences, just to make sure. I suggest using Facebook Audience Insights (it's a tool when you're in business mode). You can do some great research on potential target audiences to see what really makes them tick. Or perhaps it comes down to just investing more than $5. You might want to consider bumping that price to $10 - $15 per ad if you have the budget for it.

    Hope this helped and good luck with your Teespring business.

      Thanks Bryan!

      The ad is getting more likes, shares and comments. A lot of comments and shares saying that they want to buy the shirt and asking their friends to buy it for them, etc.

      I think I'll up the daily budget and go from there.

      Here are the stats as of now:

      Still 0 sales so far but it's only the 2nd day, and I've only been spending 5 bucks per ad.

      What do you think?

          Indeed.

          4 more days left in the campaign.

          I've increased the daily budget for each adset to $30.00, for a total of $90.00 a day. Hopefully this will pay off.

    I agree to give it a bit more time, but i'd also like to suggest to check your targeting. What is your audience reach? is it above 500,000? Having a highly targeted audience is the key.

    Considering a lower click through rate you will want to check the following

    ad: Does it pop out at the user, grab attention? Are you running news feed or right side or both?
    targeting: tighten up targeting if you your reach overall audience reach is higher.
    split test: You are split testing different targets but are you split testing different ad images??

    Don't give up on it just yet. Most campaigns don't start off profitable (although you do sometimes find some gems) Its the testing and tweaking that gets them there!

    Also someone else mentioned the design of the shirt. If you getting lots of shares etc though you would think they are liking it..

    good luck and good job taking action

    Please remember that every one and their brother is selling on tee spring now. Yeah, we did say every one. At one time making money on e-bay was easy. Back in the 90's I would go to every garage sale with my one mega pixel camera. Yeah, it was just one. Items such as old toys would often auction off for amazing prices. Those days are gone. OK so the same thing happened selling on amazon. When you first come to a river, it is full of gold nuggets and finding one is easy. However, after a few years... you cannot find even one.

    Back in the 90's I sold T-shirts at the flea market and I quickly found out what people wanted and it has stayed with me. I paid 50 cents per t-shirt and sold them for $9.99, but then the price wars came. Finally, I could no longer make any money. Good times never last, but you already knew that one.

    Right now on tee spring the supply of t-shirts far out strips the demand, and I do not rec you even try to sell any. Well, you can try finding gold nuggets but there are none left in our river.

    Yesterday, the grocery near my house closed down and boarded up. I use to say that the restaurants may close, but never a grocery. I was wrong. That shows you just how bad our economy is. BTW, T-shirts do sell well in a warm summer. Right now, it is a bit chilly in early morning. Perhaps, you should wait until spring.
