Niche advice for new Teespringers

Hey guys,

I get a lot of questions from the Filipino Teespring community about which niches have the "potential" for success. Many times they're over saturated or have already been done. If you've got a new niche you want to try, feel free to ask me about it by posting a comment below and I'll let you know what I think!  ;)

  • What about bridesmaids? I sold 2 items with my design...but couldn't seem to sell any more. Not sure if it's a good niche.
  • In my opinion. Bridesmaid are not "passionate enough" :) And it's hard to find them on Facebook.

    That's a good point...brides are way easier to target too. Back to the drawing board!
  • I was thinking of opening a Teespring store for coffee lovers - is that too broad? How would I make that more specific?
  • @ankur_teli Coffee alone is too broad. Try intersecting Coffee & Another niche like profession, pets, etc. Here's a few example of successful niche intersects:

    If it involves Books, Coffee and Cats... count me in.
  • I'm a Nigerian, I wish to create and how do I get target niches?  Not just for Africans alone. 

  • @apexbee1 You can start with something that you yourself are really into. Something that you have a little knowledge about atleast like hobbies, profession, etc.
  • How about nurses as a niche?
  • @apexbee1 Yep, Nurses are actually one of the top niches. You can also narrow down a little more nurse sub-niches like, CNA, ER Nurse, etc.
  • @MARVIN ESPINA What about mountain biking and animes?

    Definitely brother! Though I never tried animes for myself but I saw a lot of successful DBZ and One Piece themed designs last year.

    To start looking for ideas/designs for those niches, join FB groups related to Mountain Biking & Animes. Thats how I found my winning Motocross campaign. 
  • I am new here  ....
    Can i get sell  without   paid campaign?
  • Kate ShoafKate Shoaf Teespring Team
    @Muhammad - be careful about using anime...if you're caught selling copyrighted/trademarked content you could get your campaigns suspended. Learn more about avoiding design violations here

    @pjroyjit - Yes there are people who sell organically (without ads). You can find more tips in the Training Center and blog. I'd start with this content:
    - 7 tips to successful selling
    - Selling on Twitter organically
    - Growing Facebook following

    We're currently exploring Instagram too!

    My niche is the chiropractic community as well as casual and sports clothing. I listed in Awareness > Business/Start Up. Awareness because the message of chiropractic care needs to spread more. Am I doing anything wrong? What else can I do to better attract sales? I've been "liking" Facebook pages as well.
  • Kate ShoafKate Shoaf Teespring Team
    @Milan Modi - "Awareness" is usually used for fundraising campaigns (for non-profits). I think your theme could go under job/career possibly? Check out these tips for optimizing listings. Also see the links I shared above. @MARVIN ESPINA got anything else to add? ;) 
  • I have a hugh campaign for breast cancer awarness because I had the scare of it personally and understand the fear and the courage it takes to get through it. I have designs for EU and the UK ready as well . I also have campaign for Christianity and translation for cross over markets..

    Question, how many shirts can i have listed in one campaign? And how many campaigns can i host at one time?

     I have being design for over 20 years and a clothing line is one of my vision. I thankful that a company like Tee Spring is allowing people like me to put my vision out there. I do want to make money, to its not all about the money. To have my brand competing on the market along side other major names on a zero to nothing budget and investment is a lol moment, and a dream come true.

     I am a published author with a new release getting ready to come out. So there is much i will be using Tee for. I researched for a week all of your major competition. I viewed the youtube, etc and out of the 10, Tee Spring was left standing. I saw a link where Walker, the CEO was on NBC and I heard him say, they give people loke me an opportunity to make their dreams come true, to be the entrepreneurs they envisioned. 

    So i am excited about being here and will hopfully get some things uploaded today.
  • I am trying for a niche for pet cat owners(servants) lol... ,cats provide various emotions and are incredible funny animals. Within this niche i plan to make t-shirts for adopt a pet instead of buying, funny cat experiences, cat emotions, big cats and small cats similarities, cat love, cat island japan and similar kinds. Message of sharing the planet. Is there a market for this ? Or is this market saturated already ?
  • MARVIN ESPINA I believe I have discovered a noticeable niche. I used a different language to represent my brand "Red Ostrich" Check out the brand to see my products and the usage of niche I would like your advice.

    Totally @Sanket.

    I remember the shirt that says "I work hard so my CAT could live a better life" Lol.

    Hi @Erich Newman,

  • Hey, I own a youtube channel named Serial Killers Documentaries. I created some merchandise on this niche yesterday. What do you think? :) Also, is the "funny" niche still a thing, if you are original?

    @Bosnea Ionut Tudor I have seen humor/funny work, but it's within a specific niche (example funny designs created specifically for bearded men) - it's also important to understand your audience's sense of humor...something you think is funny might not be in another culture/country. Maybe @MARVIN ESPINA has more advice on this niche in particular? 
  • @Kate Shoaf I was thinking of my own niche, Serial Killers (it's pretty big, believe me). Would it be un-funny if I made funny (for me) shirts with them, instead of normal shirts?

    @Bosnea Ionut Tudor I don't know...is that a niche people are passionate enough about to spend money on your designs? If your plan to sell through our marketing services you'll need to keep our design guidelines in mind.

    @MARVIN ESPINA, @Kate Shoaf, how about Christian Women Niche? i have 4 month sell to this niche with 10+ design but but few sales. What i have to replace with another niche or keep staying?
  • zafar Hossainzafar Hossain Teespring Team
    Hi @Chrisvil_Mawuntu It's a very potential niche but you should work sidewise in other niches. Do not stick to one niche while there are other niches to make money. 
  • @zafar Hossain, thanks for your advice.
  • https://teespring.com/stores/emotion-doodles-store

    I find it hard to define my niche.
    Can somebody look at my store and advice me? 
  • @Andrea Benko
