Is this normal or am I doing something really wrong? Almost 300 views no sales

Hi. I'm still fairly new, just a couple of months on Teespring now and I am thinking I must be doing something wrong. I have spent a fair amount of money on FB advertising and on at least two of my products I have had almost 300 views according to analytics but so far I am seeing zeroes for sales. I work all day every day on this, it's a full time endeavor and I really enjoy it but what is the problem? I target my audience carefully, I think my designs are pretty cool but all nibbles and no bites. I read and re read the articles available on here, visit the forums and still no success. What should I be doing differently? I am absolutely not complaining, I'd just really appreciate some insight, thank you.

  • Oops, I'm sorry I forgot to leave links to my stores. Can someone take a look and see if you have any suggestions please? Whenever you have time. Thank you




  • Your shirts are ugly
  • Well thank you for your helpful input Jonathan but I was actually hoping to hear from one of the moderators. I have seen them respond directly to posts before and I hope they will find the time to do so with mine.
  • Hey lovely do not listen your designs are wonderful, it can take sometime to sell on here I'm still trying, I gave up for a bit but 're trying again.. keep it up your get there, try organic marketing aswell as paid marketing if you havnt already :) 
  • Well bless your heart, thank you. :) The thing I am most concerned about is whether I have setting wrong somewhere or something like that. To have 299 views on an item and not a single sale and almost that many on others just seems strange, unless I am reading the analytics wrong. Thanks so much though TashHart88.
  • I did just now go looking for the live chat but when I did find it and clicked on it nothing happened, not even being put into a que, which would have been fine, unless this is something else that is withheld until we get a sale?
  • It should work my dear, I know teespring have updated the site recently perhaps there's a couple of teething issues there end which is quite possible why chat disappeared, I know after 9.30pm live chat isn't available, my store front isn't showing any views which is odd because I know for a fact there has been so I'm putting that down to there end as well not there fault if it is just stuff needs tweaking a bit, perhaps go on Pinterest and maybe Instagram and advertise through them or facebook? You can do a variety of marketing that doesn't much or not at all, more than happy to help if you need any advice although I'm sure your be a marvel without :) 
  • Oh good lord woman, I am sending you a big hug. thank you! :) I do see a lot of traffic from advertising on FB so I know if nothing else it sure generates viewing...now if only there were something besides those big old zeros for sales....lol. I use Twitter, and Pinterest but so far I have spent about $300 on FB ads so here's hoping.
    Leave a link sometime if you want, I would love to see your store too.
  • If I could give you any advice id say to you don't pay for advertising until you make a couple of sales, once you make sales your content should be easier to see on teesprings store, once you've made a few more sales you will automatically get your best bought stuff put into Amazon and other sites :) I'll send you my store link tomorrow :) 
    Hugs

  • Ps also I love your leggings once this time of year ends that isn't pulling my purse strings I'm deffinatly treating myself to a pair, don't doubt your designs or let anybody tell you different because what might not be good for one person I bet there's plenty of others that love it :) keep it up and keep smiling :) 
  • Thanks doll, you rock!
  • I was disappointed with the response I received from seller support but I suppose they do the best they can with so many sellers. I am going to stop wasting money on advertising for this site, keep my products listed and branch out. After seeing Printful mentioned by another seller, I decided to check that out and was thrilled to find I can place my designs in my Etsy store. I've always believed you should never put all your eggs in one basket. All the best Tash and thanks so much for the boost.

    I would be interested in hearing about this as well. I haven't sold any t'shirts yet. I have a blog on instagram and promoting through there initially to a niche market in tennis. Thank you, Tracy (LoveAroundTheCourt)
