There are several ways Teespring sellers can optimize their listings to sell through Teespring Marketing and the Boosted Network. Optimized listings can improve your products’ marketplace exposure and lead to more sales. An optimized listing can also help us prioritize your products for the boosted network because our team will be able to easily identify design themes as we search for more content to feature.
Your listing title is the most important element you should focus on optimizing for the Boosted Network. Creating a unique, descriptive listing title is a great way to help shoppers find your products. An example of a good title is “I Like Beer and Fishing – Funny Hobby” because it incorporates keywords related to the design: beer, fishing, funny, hobby. These words are not only relevant to the design, but they are also words a buyer might search for.
- Keep in mind there’s no need to repeat keywords. This doesn’t improve your SEO when it comes to listings.
- Do not include words describing the product type, color, size, etc.—these elements are automatically incorporated into listings when they are added to the Boosted Network.
- Also, try to limit titles to five to eight words (40 character limit) and avoid adding words like “limited edition”, “over 1,000 sold” or “ending soon”. These words take up space, don’t improve SEO, offer no insight on what your design is actually about, and could even violate our false advertising policy.
- Make sure to translate your title if your design is translated.
It’s good practice to customize listing URLs with relevant keywords. For example, if the design is “Love my mom” and your default product is a shirt, try adding the words “shirt” to the URL so you get “teespring.com/love-my-mom-shirt”. If you don’t want to add the product to the URL make sure to add at least one or two keywords.
Your listing description can help convert shoppers into buyers and make your products more discoverable within Teespring’s Marketplace. When writing a description try to include content that is relevant to the design. Also, use phrasing that could help a shopper self-identify with your design theme.
An example of a good listing description could be something like this:
Are you a grandmother who loves knitting? Or maybe you know someone who is? These products are perfect for those who can’t be separated from their yarn and needles!
Clearly, this is a design for grandmothers who like knitting. We recommend keeping your description short and concise as well—don’t add loads of text or random keywords and hashtags as this will make your listing appear spammy.
Please keep in mind hashtags are not required for listing your products on the Boosted Network. They simply help us identify groups of listings we are interested in prioritizing. We announce hashtag promos on the blog so make sure to subscribe to avoid missing an announcement. If you want to participate in a hashtag promo all you need to do is add the specified hashtag to the description of any listings that feature the requested design theme. Please note you should only add the hashtag if your design is relevant to the theme, for example, we previously requested #FathersDay2018 for all father-themed listings. If you are caught trying to use hashtag promos to prioritize irrelevant listings (i.e. that are not related to the requested theme) you may be blacklisted from participating in hashtag promos in the future.
