Theres been a lot of conversation around teespring.com in recent months, and so we thought it a good idea to have a look at what this site has to offer and why people are getting so excited about it. Thats because just about anything flies on teespring.com it really doesnt matter your reason for selling these t-shirts, although you are certainly going to tell the world so they can decide if they want to support you.
You might be a charity or a non profit with a specific cause. You might have a great idea that you want to bring to market but dont have the capital to do so. You might have just suffered a significant loss, such as a home fire with no insurance and you are trying to rebuild. You might be trying to raise money to help out a person or family going through a medical condition like cancer. The list goes on. What unique is that the why is up to you.
Teespring is a crowd funding platform that is designed to be used by all. You design and sell custom apparel on the crowd funding concept. This means you have no upfront costs. This in itself is what so much of the buzz is around. Once you create your design you send your campaign live and if you meet your threshold or goal, money is collected from the buyers, shirts are printed and shipped, and you get your profit check. If you dont make your goal then nothing happens. No one is charged, the orders are not filled and you dont receive any money. Thousands of people have used Teespring to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars for their cause or their entrepreneurial idea.
Still not sure? Having a tough time seeing how this could make money? Skepticism is a good approach. A
few of the more recent success stories include:
* This campaign (https://teespring.com/bunnygirlsings) included the sale of toddlers and childrens shirts. The campaign was designed to raise money for an 11-year-old who wanted the opportunity to sing in a childrens choir in Hungary.
* Another campaign Love makes a family t-shirt (http://teespring.com/chrisandshelleyadopt) was created to help a couple raise money to adopt a child.
* The following campaign (http://teespring.com/staystrongboston) raised over 85K for a Boston relief
There you have it it seems teespring.com is a site thats worth exploring further if you are looking to raise money for a cause of if you just want to earn a little extra.
