As an entrepreneur I am constantly looking for new ways to make money. One of the best ways to learn different ways to make money online is to surround yourself with other people who are trying to do the same thing. Our PeerFly office is full of creative people, I get the opportunity to work with hundreds (sometimes thousands) of great affiliates every month, and my Skype is literally filled with people who want nothing more than to make their next dollar online right now. So, it should come as no surprise that I am always getting ideas for new ways to make my next dollar. Well, a few months ago my buddy Brian Johnson introduced me to my new favorite source of revenue, Teespring.
Brian and I are in a small Facebook Page mastermind group where we discuss Facebook Pages and ways to build and monetize them. When he first showed me Teespring I knew right away he had found a winner, but until I had launched my first shirt campaign I had not believed it would be as amazing as it is.
What is Teespring?
Teespring is a cool service that allows you to create “campaigns” for a shirt design, presell the shirt through their site, and as long as you hit a sales threshold (which you set) your shirt will be printed and shipped to all the buyers. The buyers are not actually charged for the shirt until you reach your threshold of sales and you are not paid for generating those sales until you meet your threshold (goal).
You can design your shirt and setup your campaign in just a few minutes. The minimum amount of shirts you can set for your goal is 10, but the higher you set your goal the more money you are paid per sale.
Teespring pays you via PayPal right after your campaign ends and shirts and printed. I have always received my payments within a day or two of my campaign ending.
Monetizing Facebook Pages with Teespring
Although Teespring is awesome, it’s really only part of the puzzle. You can design the best shirt in the world, put it on Teespring, and not make a penny if you do not generate any sales. Well, how are you going to get people to your Teespring campaign who might be interested in buying your shirt? I use Facebook Pages.
Using my FPTraffic software I am able to build and manage several large Facebook Pages. I have been creating campaigns on Teespring with shirts geared towards the niches of my Facebook Pages and then posting about the Teespring campaign on my Facebook Page. By doing this I have been able to generate over $7,500 in revenue (I have a campaign going right now) and been paid over $6,000 by Teespring!
The best part of all is that launching a campaign on Teespring takes very little work and then I use FPTraffic to schedule posts with my shirts linked in the description of the photo. I have probably spent 4 hours total on my Teespring campaigns and most of that time has been refreshing my stats!
Now, you can see from the screenshot above that not all of my shirt campaigns have been a huge hit. In fact, I have had a few campaigns fail completely. However, I have learned from those failures and have a better idea of what my audiences like on my Facebook Pages and I’m about to wrap up my third campaign that has generated over $1,000 in profit.
The other awesome thing about building large Facebook Audiences is that I can relaunch my Teespring campaigns every few months with the same shirts and still generate hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in sales.
If you have an audience in any niche I definitely recommend you check out Teespring. If you’re interested in learning more please complete the form below and I will put you in touch with my friends at Teespring (I have multiple account representatives I work with).
