10,497 Results for Wolf

The bigger problem is not this tho, as huge as that is.

Most people are going to search for wolf T shirt from Google directly & if you do that & then look in Google images teespring doesn't even rate.

just a business card printed with your messaging and a thank you
or if you are so inclined, a portion of the sale goes to 'polish penguin preservation'
the design becomes the doorway to your message, a conversation starter

start selling local, markets/tourist towns/etc., with a website as a backup
don't limit your designs, you never know what will take off
polish pride is big right now, tap into that to get your name out there (but always be original and/or innovative)
then let your name grow organically
and wear your designs everywhere you go, you'd be surprised how many sales i made like that

your designs could be done with a cheap cutter, some vinyl and a press

Set up your own Shopify site, find a local printer that prints on-demand will do you much better. I do that here in Canada, I charge $15 for basic shirts if you sell your designs for $30 you make $15 however end user must pay to ship,

Jynx, there is the reality. NO ONE, not FB or TS is going to promote your store. NO ONE.
Yes you can throw money their way, but you will not get a 'thank you' in return and the results invisible.
There are so many well established stores ahead of you.
I think you are relegated to one of these 3.
1. Wait them out until your inventory, sales (relevance) is established or the competition dies off.
2. Separate your message to be different than the cloud of voices in the Environment chorus. My visit to your site stirred no emotion in me. You product must be transformative to the buyer.
3. Take ownership of the problem. No One is going to promote your store regardless of the money you through at them. YOU MUST DO IT. And you can do it better than them all. The catch is, the cost to you will be TIME.

Understand what the 'real' issue is in today's commerce. The issue is barriers are being created between the business and the consumer creating in impenetrable curtain that only the promise of money suggests the curtain will part. This is true in EVERY business. That is why the business must employ their genius to build their own conduit to the consumer.

I suggest the following action. This suggestion is based on the value of the back story. A piece of art by Salvador Dali is not all that impressive until you know the story of Dali. The same applies to your art. Until the back story is known the value is low.
Consider also the strategy of AIR JORDAN. Each shoe comes with a cryptic story. The buyer/wearer purchased a story they can tell.

So, do you really want to change the outcome a little more quickly? Blogging with links to your store. YouTube videos with long-tail search and links to your store is the place to tell your story, reveal your genius and share your passion......and keep your dollars in your pocket.

It does take a commitment to excellence and vigilance to not break the link. And as your skill in the process increases the clarity of your message and purpose will separate you from the rest.
Best of success to you.
