Teespring’s Boosted Network Team has compiled their top tips to help you get the most sales out of each marketplace integration. Use these tips to optimize your next design and maximize listing performance on the Boosted Network.
Do use a design theme with mass appeal
Listing your products on the Boosted Network is like casting a net. The bigger your “net” (or potential buyer group) the more sales you can catch. That’s why it’s important to appeal to larger audiences—this will make your “net” bigger and increase the amount of sales you can get. Keep in mind buyers like designs that combine the things they love (pets, sports, family, etc.) with themes like holidays and trending topics too.
Do design for events, holidays, and trends
Capitalize on holidays, trends and special events with relevant designs! Try to launch holiday or event-inspired listings at least least 4 weeks in advance. This will help ensure your products are listed before the holiday rush. Also include keywords related to the event in your listing title. For example, a Valentine listing might include the following keywords in the title:
- Girlfriend / Boyfriend
Don’t create cluttered designs
The best-performing designs often have only a few images and words. Too many fonts, text, or symbols can clutter the design and look unflattering when worn.
Don’t mass-create templated designs
Marketplaces punish mass-produced designs by giving them less traffic. If you’re not sure what a mass-produced or templated design is look at the ‘firefighter’s wife’ image above. If you switched ‘firefighter’ for ‘police’ or ‘doctor’ this would be an example of a templated design concept. Templatizing can work when using Facebook Ads because you’re driving traffic to hyper-personalized listings, but this approach does not work in the Boosted Network.
Don’t use protected artwork or controversial themes
We will not list any designs that are overly political, offensive or infringing. If you are caught creating designs that violate our design policy your trust score will be lowered and you will lose access to the Boosted Network. Visit the training center to learn more about intellectual property.

If I find a picture online is that mean that is free to use? How do I know if a picture is copyrighted or protected?
Hey Lance, any picture online is not necessarily free to use. There are a couple websites that offer free imagery – I would recommend checking out https://unsplash.com/.
Liked your Do or not to do list. It’s been almost one month since I published my lists and tried to boost various social network. But no result indeed. Which is very frustrating for me. Please give me a suggestion.
Hi Khokan, thanks for your feedback. Be persistent in your promotion and be sure to opt in to the Boosted Network to place your listings on more networks.
Can we still use the #boostedfrance in description?
Getting started o t spring is easy
Hi Erica! What about images of popular people which available in Google’s search , can I use it in design? I think: popular people wanna be more popular, that’s why they attend a talk show, and what Teespring does think about that?
Hey Anthony, we do not recommend using Google images in your designs. These are all owned by someone and would result in copyright issues. If you’re looking for free images, check out unsplash.com.
If the boosted network is free, why did I pay 50¢?
It’s free – but sometimes you can pay $0.50 to get your listings prioritized for review. This can be useful if you’re account is new and you don’t have an established sales history.
