Get your designs featured on Teespring’s homepage
Do you want your Mother’s Day campaigns to potentially feature on our homepage?
Follow the steps below in for a chance of being featured:
- Add the hashtag #MothersDay2017 to the campaign descriptions of your mother-themed campaigns.
- Add the tag “MothersDay2017” to any new mother-themed campaigns you launch.
We will search for campaigns containing this hashtag and/or tag and will feature as many as possible in our Mother’s Day category. Make sure you’ve opted in to be displayed in the Teespring marketplace (check “settings” in your Teespring account).
Designing for success
Remember in the UK “mum” is the most common way to refer to mothers (similar “mom” as we say in the US). Make sure to take this spelling into account as you adapt designs and launch ads to promote your products.
Check out sites like Pinterest for design inspiration and remember to keep an open mind when it comes to niches—not only are mothers celebrated on this day, but grandparents, auntie’s, LGBT parents, etc. are too!
The more personalized a design message is, the more likely it will resonate with your niche (and sell). Review your most popular niches and see how you can adapt them for UK mums—for example your “hockey mom” design could work as a “rugby mum” design too—or you could create a new design for grans (grandmas) that love to bike, dance or swim. The best way to test which of these niches work is to look at each audience’s potential reach using Facebook’s Audience Insights.
