Default Teespring's Boosted Network - how does it really work??

I've just launched my first store on Teespring a week ago. Since then I've published 19 designs with no success. I've given 0,5$ every time I've launched campaign to be included in their Boosted Network.
And now I'm confused. The first time I did it I was asked if I'm a designer or a marketer or something else, then I choose "a designer with no networking skills" (something like that, but in different words). So they proposed me their "Boosted Network" then for a first time. I know they have something like trust scores, which are higher when someone buys your stuff. But I thought they will help me to get these first sales with boosted network, right? After all I gave my money on it. Yet although I found niches passionate about a subject (I'm pretty sure about it, cause I'm too a part of their scope), I make sure to have highest quality designs possible, bought few FB ads, I'm still not a part of other markets.
In conclusion, am I missing something? Please, can somebody explain me what's going on here? Or maybe Teespring team doesn't like artistic styles in their store?

Doesn't sound optimistic... Is there better alternative among POD sites, or everywhere's the same?

If you're not getting sales from Teespring boost, and you're not getting sales from Facebook, maybe it's that no one is interested in your designs?

I like the wolf, but I am probably biased as a former owner of sibirian husky. If I would wear/made that kinda shirt for me, it would be without that square around the wolf. So I would probably use negative positive space differently then you did.

Just a question. Doesn't people on those pod sites have like 1000 or more designs per store? I don't know why I think so. Maybe I was reading somewhere...

Teespring IS a print on demand site.



Your designs certainly are sell-able. So it boils down to marketing and getting the word out. Teespring has thousands of hits on key word searches such as 'environment', 'conservation', etc. What key words did you give them for your boost? Have you tested to see if you show up on the 1st page using those search terms?

6 designs will never be enough, no matter how many different "products" you place them on.

My first visit to Teaspring, but, there are 20 categories in apparel alone. If you want to attempt to cut through the noise of all of the other designers then I think you'd need a minimum 0f 10 different designs in every single category but realistically you'd probably need more.

i like the zebra penguin and the wolf (with seacookie's suggestion + lose the text)

make this your style niche, and leave the messaging off-design (use cards with the tee's/hangtag back, or on your site)

Thanks for suggestion
And now as a complete newbie I must ask... what do you mean by "use cards"?

Work is good. Problem is, if you don't have any work.

I don't do PODs, but main issue I think it the one JynxDezyns mentioned. How to cut true all the noise on those sites. As soon someone clicks on for example ''wolf'' t-shirt, I guess he get bunch of suggestions from other designers with a wolf t-shirt. So just thinking about why should someone buy yours instead of 100 other wolfs?



If I write on google teespring wolf i get this:
https://teespring.com/shop/wolf-t-shirts
your t-shirt was the third in the row, so not bad I would say. But I didn't check all the wolfs to see which one I like the best if I would be in situation where I would like to buy a wolf t-shirt.


But in reality how many people are searching for wolf t-shirt? Did you check? Just wondering.
