    Hi Dreamboy,


    in my experience promoting Clickbank products getting sales takes a long time and can be difficult.


    I have heard that promoting shirt business using Teespring site has been very successful for a lot of people.


    People seem to like tee shirts made to order - I must state here I have no experience of it
    but I have seen a lot of posts where people have done very well with Teespring.

    What I would do before I started would put "Teespring" in the search filed above on Warrior Forum and you will see a lot of articles that will help you with this.


    Hope this helps.

      Hi Ged,

      I really appreciate your reply and advise, thank you so much !!!

      The most difficult part when promoting a product is getting quality traffic i think.

      Thank you once again Ged.

      Regards

    Dreamerboy:

    I really doubt it. You can't rely on others to tell you what the "right" business model is for you. They don't know you. They don't know your likes and dislikes, your marketing experience, your education and background, or your aptitude for running your own business.

    If you're good at online marketing, both models could be profitable ... or neither one. It's all up to you.

    Those who have made money with CB will tell you it's the right choice and those who have had a positive experience with TeeSpring will tell you it's the way to go.

    My suggestion: read through the threads you'll find about each type of business using the "search" function at this forum. It will help you to see some of the issues, challenges, and questions on the minds of Warrior members involved in them. You will get an idea of how easy or difficult each of these businesses might be to set up, run, and profit from.

    But in the end, the decision and the consequences resulting are completely your own. True entrepreneurs research their businesses until they feel they can make intelligent decisions ... then they move forward with blinders on until they are successful - not paying much attention to what others think.

    Good luck to you,

    Steve

      Hi Steve,

      Thank you for your advise and honest comment !!

      The reason for choosing the teespring business because i am also a designer, i am a freelancer since 2010, i see that Teespring is a good choice where i still can use design on T-Shirts, but i feel lately Teespring business is downgrading now as it was 2 years ago, so i start thinking about Clickbank and promoting a product.

      Thank you !!

    You are welcome TheDreamboy,


    I know it can be difficult to decide - so that's where this forum can help you!


    Steveb and Bizopboost have made some good points - I like Bizopboost mentioning Youtube.


    I have had a ton of visitors from Youtube - its free to upload a video there and if you post a video people like it can go viral.


    You can also create a Channel related to one theme and further increase your visitors.


    I have found that a lot of visitors to my videos come directly from Google - as Google owns Youtube the Youtube videos do well in Google's search engine.


    Hope you do well.

    No one can tell you what kind of business YOU should build. They may be able to say which THEY would work on.

    What kind of work do you want to be doing, or be involved in, or delegating, six months to a year from now? Do you want a business where you have to constantly figure out new designs, carefully watch to see what's selling and replace what is not, and manage ads?

    Or do you want to set up a sequence, get it running, then walk away until either it dies or the product creator takes the offer down? And you have to start over from scratch at that point?

    A lot easier to change out or add one new t-shirt product.

    A lot simpler to handle one funnel.

    You have to choose. Make sure you commit.

        I think you have to learn how to find people who want t-shirts or your style of fashion and direct them to the store. That's a skill. There's a cost to do it.

        A bad designer who's a good marketer will outperform a great designer who lacks marketing skills.

        This is a process and you must commit to learning whatever it is you choose. Otherwise, you'll go back to zero every time you change ideas.

            FB ads without some training, plus a budget you are willing to lose, is a fast road to running out of cash. I've seen people get stuck in gambler mode. They throw good money after bad because they think, "I took it this far; I ought to get to success soon." But they haven't really learned anything other than What Doesn't Work.

            I'd be more inclined to find a couple influencers who already have their own audiences, and get them wearing and talking about the cool designs you make. That would be a much smoother sales process.

    I have to ask you a question,

    Why did you pick those to methods?

    Did you pick them because you think that they will make you the most money--or do you actually like them.

    If you like them, I would pick the T-Shirt biz, but this is just me.

    However, if, you really do not like them, I would advise looking into something that you like.

    What do I mean?

    Simple.

    If you like writing start a blog--if you cannot stand the thought of that--how about making videos.

    Or how about building a list?

    Try and pick something that you know you will do--and then stick with it.

    Hope This helps.

      Hi Shmol,

      Thank you so much for your help, i am so happy to receive this amount of ideas and comment, people are so kind here, thank you !!!

      The reason i am choosing Teespring as i have said is doing what i like to do, as i am a designer, i will love to make new designs, but i noticed 1 or 2 years ago some people made a great profit with Teespring, but lately i felt it's not as profitable as it was, i don't know it's just a feeling i am not sure, i am afraid to start spending money and time on Teespring and getting disappointed, what do you think my friend i am wrong ?

      About Clickbank product promotion, i think it will still work for a good time but it will require a lot of time to succeed your business at Clickbank.

      Thank you Shmol

      Hi Steven,

      Thank you for leaving your comments !!

      I think Facebook Ads is a good way to get leads, but some people say if you have a small budget from $50 to 150 that you may spend your money without getting any leads.

      I really don't know how professionals use facebook ads and get an interesting profit with that.

      What do you think ?

    Autopilot website?? sounds romantic but for the most part unrealistic. I mean, I have some old Adsense Sites that "kind" of do that. But that is essentially about it.

    That term is so 2008 lol

    Right now i dont think you understand marketing too well. Both business models you proposed can be made profitable with great marketing. You need to go back to the drawing board.

      Hello Randall,

      Thank you so much for your comment !!

      The reason for choosing Teespring business is because my experience as a graphic designer and i can create good T-Shirt designs, in fact i wish to work on a marketing platform that uses design skills, i am a freelancer about 7 years now, I think freelancing was great on Elance time, now with Upwork everything is blown away.

      I am still learning how to get interesting traffic to promote T-Shirt business, because traffic is the most difficult part in every business in my opinion.

      Thank you once again for your advise dear Randall !!!

    I think your T-shirts business can be great, you should try to target the right audience, but also, you can run some videos on Youtube also, to promote them, and then you should create a good landing page to your offer, and it should be a good campaign.

    I won't recommend these options, if you ask me.

    I have 90+ clients now, and just one of them was in t-shirt and printed shoes business. However, even that client turned towards Amazon niches and now relishing great results.

    I won't recommend Clickbank products either. Since, almost 80-90% of my clients are promoting Amazon niches, as far as I know. They create review websites and try to dominate the search engines through content.

    I'm not saying that people with t-shirt business or Clickbank programs aren't earning. They are, but this isn't the case with me at least.

    I buy courses too, but in reality I learn more from my clients. Since, I know if they are successful through a specific business model, I can be successful too. I copied their method of success and now I'm in a powerful position too.

    I have a few other clients who focus on adsense and services only. For example, they pick just city/town and highlight everything about it.

    The best thing?

    I have seen some long term clients who sell their websites too for $X,XXX once they start earning a few hundred dollars each month. Since, people love to buy revenue generating websites and it is quite easy to sell them too.

    All in all, there are lots of business models. If I have to do one thing, I'll do this again and again, and again. And, I'm already doing it.

    A similar angle would be to license the designs, rather than sell them outright.

    You should get an upfront fee plus a royalty for every shirt sold.

    Why limit yourself? Why not try both?

    My only advice would be to create your own unique content (or buy content) for a website. IMO stay away from "autopilot"

    Hi - here's a different way to think about it...

    I want to be in a business that improves someone's life by...(improving their confidence, making them laugh, helping them look better by losing weight, helping them improve their circle of friends...etc....)

    Then...the product opportunities I have identified are:

    1. A clickbank product that helps someone improve their self-confidence, lose fat, etc...)
    2. A line of t-shirts that helps people feel better about themselves or that makes them look thinner or with friendly images that help them meet people, etc...
    3. My own video course that teaches people to....

    See we help many people who want to write an ebook or create a course to sell online - the ones that succeed are those who recognize they are not in the ebook or course business..they are in the business of helping transform someone's life (from having too much belly fat to having solid abs; from attracting people who take advantage of them to attracting like-minded friends, etc...) THROUGH the development of courses, ebooks or other products.


    My point IS that you must FIRST decide what business you will be in...providing value to a given, defined market and THEN fit your products to that market

    Hope that makes sense...

    Hi Dreamboy,
    I think Start an Online T-Shirt Business can be more easily and faster to profit with.
    It is absolutely no requirements to join in, just a few steps to learn the system.

    Few elements to starting a successful T-shirt business you have to know about before moving forward.
    To be more specific will be more fast to stand out
    The niche and the right audience to target without losing your money.
    The Design,
    People look for the best design, and graphics and slogans that can with thier attention, if you do this the right way you can sell even white or black T-shirts, the best design sell itself.
    The quality of shirts also selling fast
    AND THE BRAND

    And I believe if you make Tshirt business is one of your choices so you already collected your information about
    Design, Quality, T-Shirt Printing Quality,
    And sure the easiest way is [Screen Printing].
    and how to create your design.
    You can hire a designer or buy designs.
    Mocking Up Your Designs, but the most important thing to keep in mind is to validate your designs.

    Before you spend lot of money on your design business you have to verify that their is a market and interests for your design.

    Many ways you can use to validate the market for your designs ideas.
    Use social media to show the world your design, use Facebook, Twitter and any social media you have friends on.
    I highly recommend Reddit and Pinterest.
    This is huge market for such business, go and ask people first their opinions about your designs.

    Use crowd-funding websites like Kickstarter, the benefits can be huge

    Create E-commerce store, it is never been easier to setup fully functional online store in a matter of few hours to validate your business idea.

    I personally selling automated blogs to my clients, some of them use the E-commerce turnkey sites to promote his products.

    Brand yourself with your business.
    Create Facebook page, FB group, automated blog, Youtube channel and any social account you can create and use.
    Make those pages as your own network to promote your business

    Good luck with your new business

  • I'll recommend you to go for T-shirt business using Teespring.
    There are two things you have to think about Teespring. To begin with, they've manufactured a stunning stage that enables anybody to plan and offer shirts. Second, offering Teespring tees through Facebook advertisements is a match made in paradise. They simply offer incredibly well, and the procedure means ludicrously low expenses to secure clients.

    Make the ideal shirt

    The initial step to progress is making an amazing shirt that everybody will need to purchase. Since our primary objective is to effectively offer and create benefits through Teespring and Facebook Ads, we need to use these stages' qualities.

    The greatest quality of Facebook Advertising is that it enables you to target certain statistic groups of onlookers in view of their age, area, sex and, in particular, interests. Their objective for an effective crusade will be to locate a particular specialty, effortlessly reachable through Facebook Ads and liable to purchase a T-Shirt.Once you've propelled your battle, it's a great opportunity to advance it. Before pushing ahead, make your AdEspresso's record, it's absolutely free for the initial 30 days .

    Hi the dreamer boy.

    100% you should promote clickbank products. The t-shirt niche is becoming ever increasingly more competitive and using FB ads alone your going to be in the same boat as everyone else. If you diversified and used a selection of traffic sources (instagram influencers and YouTube) that would separate you from the crowd a bit. But if you want to survive in that niche your really going to have to be creative with your marketing strategies.

    Whereas, with a clickbank product you can choose what niche to focus in, as well as entirely customise your income and sales funnel with up-sells, down-sell and memberships. You can create a much more targeted, personal experience in a less competitive niche.
