13. Once you get dumped werewolves sneak in as the rebound guy.

Rob - Every time you eat meat a hippie drops a hacky sack - I laughed when I saw this. You happen to be at a bbq and witness said event or are you the hapless hacky sack hippie?
David - I used to live out of my car for a few months, and carried multiple hacky sacks around to all the people's places I crashed at. Met many different people, and a few were hippies. Great, wonderful, amazing people, not because they associated with the hippie group, but of who they are. We talked long and hard about the circle of life, and how you have to keep the hacky sack going to everyone to complete the circle. When it dropped we joked about people dying, or trees falling every time someone drops the hacky sack.

Funny t-shirts especially just seem to be severely overpriced.
You can find some
Funny Cheap tshirts under 15 bucks it is extremely rare.
Many moons ago people associated price with quality.
When you thought of a cheap tshirt, it usually meant that the t-shirt lacked style, was made of poor quality, or it was on sale for some strange reason.
High priced equals quality in the minds of many people. There are however, many high priced pieces of clothing that are marked higher, to give it a psychologically distorted value. This is accomplished by the idea "You get what you pay for." Assuming a greater price the quality will be greater. It’s time to change that assumption. Shirts that are low in price can be extremely high in quality. At Soge Shirts we strive to provide shirts of a low cost value, without sacrificing quality. The special little touches that our artists put into their tshirt designs, gives the t-shirt a better look, feel, and value. For the work involved we price our shirts as low as possible so our customers can enjoy great clothing. Who couldn't use some cool threads to shock some loud neighbors, or crack a joke during happy hour? Our cheap funny tshirts are crafted to put a smile on the faces of men, women, and children alike.
We proudly offer Cheap funny tees starting at $11.99 and many of our cute boys and girls t-shirts are $11.99 dollars as well. This means you get very cool clothing for your whole family at low prices. For example you can get cute shirts for kids like our
Supaw Pawers Tees for boys and girls starting at $11.99.
If you think your kid has a sense of humor, try our funny tees for kids.
Our hot tees for women
retails as low as $17.99, much less than then industry average. Besides being a great fit, these tees for women are cute, hot, and sexy. Why pay $40 dollars on women's tee shirts at a department store when you can get a sassy t-shirt of department store quality online for $17.99? In today's economy, purchasing a high valued product at a price you can afford is a must.

Our first new design is Love Conquers all. It features a giant sacred heart burning with love being worshiped by three tiny hearts. If you believe in love and humanity you should put this on your must get list. It's probably more of a shirt for the ladies but if you're a guy and want to get one that is fantastic. This is a great cute t-shirt design for girls with each bowing heart serving as a reminder that love conquers all. If the Aztecs would have remembered that they would have whipped Cortez's butt.
If you hate little heart people bowing at the feet of the great sacred heart we also offer the design with just the great sacred heart. This is because we like all of our customers except for Frank. If your name is Frank and are reading this I'm referring to a different Frank. Anyways wear this t-shirt at the mall and you'll get a bunch of that is so cute comments or that is so precious. Either way you'll get positive attention.
Our next shirt in our line of great graphic tees is Every Time You Eat Meat A Hippie Drops A Hacky Sack. This shirt is pretty literal. Every time you eat meat a hippie loses his concentration and lets the hacky sack drop to the ground. Meat is cryptonite to a hippie and especially affects their foot skills. Veal is the greatest offender to hippies as anytime veal is eaten not only do they whiff kicking the hacky sack they also punch themselves in the face. I don't really have anything against hippies as they have some pretty noble ideas with exception to their inability to shower or wear deodeorant.
Wear this cheap graphic tee to a barbecues as their is sure to be many a meat eater that will give you a high five. Do not wear this shirt at a PETA conference or at a whole foods market. Although your shirt will have meat on it only real meat will stop their legs from working. You will get kicked by strong hacky sack playing hippie legs a lot if you wear this t-shirt in their presence.
Next in our awesome humor t-shirts for July we have the need to get laid equation. The concept of this shirt is not too hard to figure out. Unless you are a physicist or in aeronautics solving quadratic equations all day is pretty pointless and is definitely not going to impress the members of the opposite sex. In these times a facebook account and attending college is all it takes to hook up. Leave all the einstein stuff to the chess team or Matt Damon/ Russell Crow from the movies. Yes I know Matt Damon and Russell Crow got laid in their movies by being math geniuses but they were Matt Damon and Russel Crow. Jaime Escalante got no loving even will all the inner city kids he taught. Wear this shirt at funny college t-shirt in the dorms and you'll get loving in no time unless you're a jerk. Don't wear it in your engineering class or else you may have pi shoved in your face.
Finally we have our new t-shirt design on zazzle My bologna has a first name but no social security number. This funny graphic t-shirt is a reminder that you better get a background check on a piece of bologna if you are going to hire it. It only has a first name, no social security number, and that green card looks like they took some monopoly money and had it laminated. Darn that clever bologna. Bologna is so sketchy that sometimes it tries to go to subway and pass itself off as salami. Wear this shirt everywhere! Bologna has lost popularity in recent years and it needs to make a comeback.
With Michael Jackson, Billy Mays, and Steve McNair passing at such young ages kids are going to start having mid life crises at 12. At least most of them won't have to worry about losing the Xbox in a break up with the little neighbor girl down the street. They say that death comes in threes, well so do the Jonas Brothers. Coincidence I say not. Anyways death, taxes, and Disney producing teen musical acts with no talent are three things that will likely never change as long as their is humanity on earth. R.I.P. to all celebrities and non celebrities alike. I hope you will all be remembered.

Vegetables, much like a natural cotton silly tshirt, is better organic and fresh. In my estimation, the previous statement is 100% true with the
exception of broccoli. Dump enough butter or ranch to clog your arteries and broccoli will still taste nasty, whether it is fresh or frozen. I don't know what is is about broccoli that gives it that crisp, sour, cardboard taste, but I believe the green afro it hoists on top of its stem has something to do with it. Never eating anything with a green afro, is a lesson I learned from cannibals in the Peruvian jungle. Maybe it's irony that broccoli tastes so bad, yet is so nutritious, you need to eat it. C'mon science, make broccoli taste like pizza. Or at least make broccoli give me super powers so i can dawn a funny graphic tee, and fight crime in my jeans.
There are so many places you can wear this cheap funny t-shirt.
1. Wear it at a whole foods market to confuse people. You are shopping
at a healthy organic market, or vegetable covered street corner poker table,
and you're wearing a graphic tee shirt with
Fresh Broccoli is Just as Nasty as Frozen Broccoli.
You might get kicked out or vegan's might scream at you for spreading rumors about their favorite dessert.
Reply with "If it tasted like chicken instead of a small bonsai tree, it'd eat it"
But you've got a funny graphic tee, that warns flavor lovers of an impending disaster.
2. Wear it at football and baseball games. In an environment
where fried food, hot dogs, and beer reign supreme,
you wont find broccoli concession stands.
America pastimes don't include eating bushy little green microphones of yuck.
3. I don't need to come up with a third place since the hilarious tee
shirt is just that good.
Back in the sixties/seventies it was all about sex drugs and rock n roll. Since then we've all gotten a little older and a little wiser and a new era has dawned of No sex, Rx Drugs, Rock and Roll Out of Bed Tees, has taken over the youth. Now don't get depressed ask for more meds, the good news is there is more partying to be done.
Take a big step in your life and get this hilarious bad offensive t-shirt and let others know that you have a kick ass and take names, sense of humor. (or a kick names and take ass kind of humor, .. however the saying goes.)
Try to party the greatest way possible ... responsibly. Responsibly partying isn't waking up next day 150 miles southwest of your job, 1 hour before work starts probably wont get you on your boss's "due for a raise" list.
This type of partying usually involves presents, 100% juice and a blended variety of pinata hitting, and pin the tail on the donkey.
Spend time with your kids. Teach them the responsible ways to party, before it's too late. You would hate to tell them about your past and how you blacked out.. not wearing your crazy hilarious tshirt, or pants, in the middle of a football stadium parking lot. Remember, teach your children that abstaining from sex, using prescription drugs, and forcing yourself to get up in the morning may not make you the life of the party, but it will lead to more productivity which is a good and responsible thing. Plus you'll be able to amaze stranger with stories of your party days. Don't worry now that you are non Rx drug free, you'll be able to remember them.

at best but Jon and Kate Gosselin are driving me insane. There is no
escape from them or their innocent eight. First Jon is allegedly
cheating on Kate with a "teacher friend" at a bar and then Kate is
rumored to be spending adult time with a bodyguard. Since when do you
even time to have affairs with other people when you have eight kids?
How do you even get out of the house? I don't think the I'm going to
the market to pick up milk excuse is going to fly when you are gone
the whole night. I almost wonder if the whole affair mess is a charade
by Jon and Kate to get more ratings for their TV show. They could be
secretly be sipping wine in bubble baths together while they count
their new millions the publicity of their affairs are getting. If I'm
right here are some other Jon and Kate storylines you may see this
1. Jon decides to leave Kate to go to Iraq. He decides to take Joel
with him for some daddy fighty time but Kate reminds him that Joel
can't go on the flight since Jon didn't use a coupon to book the
2. Kate decides that one of the eight must be put up for adoption. She
lets America vote one of the eight off American Idol style. Ryan
Seacrest is brought in to console the loser.
3. Jon gets romantically linked to one of the married cast members on
The Hills. Kate declares Jon to be a professional marriage destroyer.
4. Kate appears on the next celebrity apprentice. She makes Omarosa
and Joan Rivers cry.
5. All eight kids divorce their parents and get the rights to all the
money their parents have made off of them.

that. Since rainbows are magical it only makes sense that they come
from a magical mythical creature such as the unicorn. Despite the
unicorns beauty and magical qualities a unicorn can not create a
rainbow out of nothing. It releases the rainbow out of a bodily
function known to them as passing beauty and known to us as passing
gas or farting. Everyone has bodily functions, just unicorns are
better at producing 7 different beautiful colors out of their toots.
Our next shirt is genuis/genius.
Yes they are two different shirts. By wearing one you are saying to the
world I am a brilliant mind and am proud enough to tell everyone about
it. I like sudoku, crossword puzzles, and enjoy mensa meeting
biweekly. By wearing the other shirt you are saying I like to wear
funny and ironic t-shirts and intelligent people will get the joke.
I'll let you decide which shirt is which since I assume everyone
reading out there are geniuses.
Our last great graphic t-shirt is available at
Welcome to fantasy Island! This shirt beats the pants off the tv show get it? The dancing red on the shirt indicates a playful nature of things to come. Any
fantasy that you can imagine that is rated pg 13 in nature can be
achieved as a result of buying this t-shirt. We can't be responsible
for all you moms leaving your hubbys for Brad Pitt or George Clooney.
The other great benefit to the shirt is you are automatically much
more friendly than a walmart greeter. They can only welcome people to
walmart while you welcome them to an island of fantasy. What is better
an adventure of a lifetime or twenty cents off of Scott paper towels?

Sir Mix a lot parody a little disturbing. Pairing Sir Mix a lots love
of rumps with a beloved kids cartoon character might be the worst
combination since bacon mayonnaise. I can't figure out who Burger King
is trying to target in this ad. Are they going after the eight year
old boys who like butts demographic or the adults who enjoy ladies
in square pants fetish?
Sir mix a lot wins in this commercial as he shovels more money in the bank. Who knew loving big asses would make him not have to work another
day in his life. As odd and weird as Burger Kings square butts
commercial was I'll give them some credit for not doing a hello kitty
hello pussy commercial. The Burger King would not have it his way in jail
if they did that one. Pickles would definitely be included in buns of course.
Now that Burger King has come up with a really bad parody linked to
kids tv shows, I wanted to come up with some other bad parodies of
songs that could sell some nifty products.
- Flomax uses the Frankie goes to Hollywood song "Relax don't do it".
In this commercial a nervous man with his legs crossed is sitting on a
bench looking uncomfortable. The new lyrics for the song are relax just do it. Flomax will get you through it. Relax just do it when you want to go. The commercial ends with the guy running to the restroom.
-Coppertone sunscreen takes the Nirvana song "You Know you're Right"
and makes it "you know you're white" to sell sunscreen. Some of the
lyrics changes include "you never were good at basketball, you don't
know how to dance at all, the sunlight bothers you, use sunscreen
daily too. Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey you know you're white you
know you're white.
- Victoria's secret takes Right Said Fred's nineties hit "I'm too sexy
for my shirt" and changes it to I'm too sexy for my skirt and shows
Victoria secret models in lingerie. Oh wait that would work actually and
be the best commercial ever.

Girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice according to
a society of nursery rhyming hermits who wont leave the closet for fear that the sun will assassinate them. No amount of Naughty T-shirts, will save that poor soul from meeting a woman with your balance of Beauty and Vixen. We think sugar and
spice, sans the nice, can be a pretty provocative combination. You've got the "one glance in your direction just gave me a cavity," sweetness. You've got a voice that commands attention, whatever the cost. You've got it all, the walk the look, the nothing short of awesome, Aura. All you need is a Cute but sexy t-shirt with a pin up girl tattoo to add to the Greatness you posses. According to our $0.50 garage sale history book purchase, well behaved women rarely make their mark. If your a
rebel or a rocker girl tattooed from the toes to the nose, this may be the naughty shirt for you. This
is the tshirt that says to your boyfriend or husband "go make me a
sandwich and don't forget the beer." Forget being a Betty Crocker some
days you just want to be a Betty Page and be treated like the sexy
pinup goddess people die for. Rock the sugar and spice shirt on casual
Friday as a way to say this is how you do casual.
We've concocted some easier words to say than concocted, and some very sweet places to rock this charming graphic t-shirt for women. From
the boys at Soge shirts.
We currently devised two styles, for Blondes and Brunettes. (Sorry Red Heads, if you really want one, email us)
1. At a baby shower for a friend who is having a girl - Change up the
Culture of the baby shower by buying your friend's baby a sugar and
spice onsie, or a sugar and spice bib. It will be a nice
change of pace from the scones, noisy toys, and tea sets your friend is
going to unwrap. Give your girlfriend a reason to keep her youthful edge alive, and pass her sugar and spice onto her children. A baby girl in her terrible two’s, isn't so sweet anymore. Give the baby shower gift that steals the naughty trophy, but still wins the approval of the sweet hearts who wrapped diapers.
2. The DMV - The DMV is a place where Nice is number # 3,374 in line, and they're serving number 4. Wearing
the shirt there lets the Department of Motor Vehicles know that if they want to bitch
about your registration, and those 17 parking tickets, they will be dealt with accordingly. If they chose to walk down the sugary road of smiles... they might live until it's time for their own license renewal.
3. A Club a Bar or a Dance Hall - The shirt says it all. If you don't feel like being hit on
by yuppie businessman or unshaven wildebeest, (we've seen some weird people) then utilize this bad to the bone tshirt as a sweet loser
shield. You won't even have to dance in a circle with your friends
because most guys will know that you can bite sometimes.

The Best Las Vegas T-shirt. Almost 99% Guaranteed to get you free drinks.
The lights, the glamour, the strippers, the money, the food, the money, the shows, the hookers and the beer are all things we leave behind when we leave Las Vegas. Hopefully most of you take home some money, and if you’re lucky, a stripper. The question that remains is “How to get free stuff while partying in Vegas.”
My answer to you my friend is the official Las Vegas T-shirt. The Hello My Name is Buy me a drink T-shirt is the Greatest double fisting, official drink for free shirt, ever invented.
Some may say this is only speculation, but proof resides in the massive amounts of hang over reports by friends and family collected by the institute of higher drinkers, that state “I didn’t have to say anything. They just handed me a drink” – Anonymous, California.
This is not your average run of the mill funny drinking tshirt. It is in fact a direct statement towards an amazing dance of conversation, and consideration, that turn strangers into friends. The shirt has a “Hello my name is” sticker, usually reserved for business meetings, book clubs, and pyramid scheme conventions. However, this is not your ordinary hello my name is sticker. This sticker provides a warm greeting of “Hello my name is” showing the receiver of this message that you are open to a hand shake or a handout, and plan to offer a greeting of your illustrious name. Once they commit to accepting this greeting, they are overwhelmed by humor as they find out what your name is. A simple request, with first, last and middle names. “Buy me a drink.” For a second, they can’t believe that this awesome sweet tee shirt actually has the sticker and buy me a drink printed on it! After a quick breath to regain consciousness and the laughter subsides, they are more inclined to get you a beer, or a shot, than they were before they saw your awesome Vegas tshirt.
60% of the time, it works every time. Except the other 90% of the time it works, it really works. You drink for free with these Drinking t-shirts. Ladies, if you have the looks to get free drinks, in Vegas, in clubs, or even at Denny’s, but you want to show how personable and funny your sugary insides are, they’re available for you, in a style all your own. Check out how cute you can look in a buy me a drink t-shirt for women.
If I was wearing my buy me a drink Las Vegas drinking t-shirt, and came across a beautiful woman such as yourself, with a Hello my name is buy me a drink women’s t-shirt, the streets of Vegas would shake with the power of alcohol exploding as we toast to free drinks. I warn you, it is not voodoo, nor is it a revelation, prophesized over 1,000 years ago, that there will be a flood of free drinks, greater than the free drinks you get in Vegas already for gambling. No sir, this is a warning that you might wake up pants less, looking for your buy me a drink t shirt, so you can escape down the hall, pick up food from the left over neighbors room service, and get yourself a Bloody Mary, to stop your head from spinning.
This cool shirt can only provide free laughs and booze, not protection from…what’s their name.

or other Adobe products Like Adobe Illustrator, or the whole entire package, the Creative Suite 4 (CS4)
The reason for the programs, is you will have to create some form of design, whether it's a simple text design tshirt, or a more artistic graphic design t-shirt, you need to create Vector images, or images that have a transparent background.
Which will allow you to create and design whatever you like, and with cafepress , directly load your design onto the products of your choosing. They even have a great design tutorial and Beginners Image Workshop , that explains the correct way to design for their products. They will take you step by step learning how to create and design your images to put on clothing and merchandise. Starting with a third party website is perfect for low budget starting companies, looking to have someone handle the printing and shipping of the products, as well as the merchant services, and customer services. You wont have to charge one credit card yourself, or handle any returns or discrepancies.
Most third party custom clothing sites allow you to personalize your shop's page and colorize and customize your layout. Granted you know a little bit about HTML, and web design, you can take your shop to the next level with flash design, and custom banners and logos. YOU are in control of what you sell, how much you sell, and what you want to sell. If you love dogs and dolphins, and there's a market for dog owners and aquatic adventurers, make a t-shirt for dogs that has some artwork of dolphins on it. If you're a mother, and want to sell cute adorable clothing for moms and their kids, design some cute stuff. ANYTHING goes, except for explicit content, explained by each website. If you take some time designing your products, those products will be on auto pilot, so to speak, and as long as you pay any small monthly fees, your products can sell while you sleep. That's right, your funny hilarious t-shirts, and cool awesome products, will make you money 24 hours a day. Sounds easy, right? It is, and we've joined thousands of shop owners, making money off their creativity.
Diving into the T-shirt Pool and Making your T-shirts Store, Stand Out.
Climbing to the top of the cafepress shop top money makers
When creating designs try to brainstorm ideas that haven't been done. It's hard, but think of things that you appreciate, and try to ask people around you, such as co-workers, or people who will not be bias towards your design. You can even go as far as talking to other shop owners to find what niche works best for your style. If you have experience in market research, by all means, study market trends, on what your target market is, and design for those consumers. This way you can grab an understanding of what the consumer might like. Try a new spin on a common saying and throwing in a pun in there to make it something funny and interesting of your own. Design a graphic all your own, and illustrate your funny phrase, deep emotional connection, or random information, to give the consumer more value for their product. Your shirts don't have to be hilarious funny t-shirts, but they can be artistic, or political, or even educational, spiritual, or any type of artwork, you have created, or appreciate. Try designing specific designs with common names on them, or celebration gifts for birthdays of all ages. You can go as far as obtain a license for selling other people's artwork. We currently have two artists, who's amazing artwork, we've placed on t-shirts, mugs, clocks, posters, stickers, ornaments, magnets, dog tees, mouspads, pillows, teddy bears, underwear and more. Almost anything you can imagine, can be on a product. Check out Soge Shirts sogeshirts.com for a great example.
Or check out other companies, that bring shirt design and selling, to the internet. Like a leader in the business
It's a good idea to browse tshirt companies, to see how they're built, how they attract people to their site, and what quality and value they bring to each potential consumer. Another company is Reckless Tees
If you feel your idea is not quite original, or have doubts, please research trademark and copyright infringements.
Building an Awesome T-shirt Website, that Drives Sales, and Profit Right to Your Pocket
Take a look at your store and products from a consumer's perspective
Take a look at your site as if you wanted to buy something. Take a look at your store and products from a consumer's perspective. Are the colors working? are things easy to get to? Is there enough information for your products? Do you want to come back to this site? What is it you get when you visit this site? By thinking like a customer, you can get a good idea of what they will be looking for when they come to your site.
Hopefully you already have some designs created, next is to spend some time on your shop's website. If you need to brush up on your HTML skills, check out W3Schools, for a fast, simple way to learn HTML, and how to code websites. Personally, I use Dreamweaver, From Adobe.
If you have a little money to spend, pick up this website building program. It has a great Help section, and online tutorials that will give you Massive amounts of web building power, more than any template can give you. By completely customizing your website, you can update it at any time, easily with Dreamweaver, with only limited knowledge of HTML and web design.
If you open a Cafe Press Premium Shop, and have built your own website, seperate from Cafe Press, DO check out this amazing PHP tool, from CPSHOP. It takes all your products from cafepress.com and places them inside your own website, with somewhat great ease. If you have a problem, Marty, is awesome and has Forums, and message boards to help you every step of the way, and he even gets involved if you're slow like myself, and sometimes get confused. Much Love Marty.
Market Research is a Great Way to Know Your Customer.
Gather information on your potential customers, and their style of shopping. We made the mistake of making our first shop, really bright, and cluttered, and too much going on, that it was very difficult for the shopper to concentrate on our products. The look and feel of your shop, should potentially match those people viewing your site. Find colors that complement your shops style, but don't drive away potential customers. Adding value to your store, such as a newsletter subscription, or blog feed, or even some simple but effective you tube videos, to increase reasons people would want to stay on your website. Soge Shirts uses a blog to keep friends and customers connected to the value we offer, along side our awesome products. This can increase the chance of your products being seen, by grabbing another aspect of social marketing, and turn new customers onto the style of service you provide. Of course we have links to our shops, and display our shirts on the blog as well. Much like the Newsletter subscriptions, the blog is a great tool for users to recieve rss feeds based on news released through the blog, or any product updates, and potential headlines your shop might produce. The longer someone is navigating your site, and staying connected to your brand, the higher potential there is for your products to be seen, and eventually sold.
You'll need to buy a domain name (the virtual address of your site), find a place to host your website, and the desire to create your shop. Many places can build one for you, and some can give you design tools to create one yourself. GoDaddy.com Yahoo! Web Hosting, Yahoo uses a web hosting service to allow your site to be visited and operated. Yahoo also has online stores you can open, if you plan on getting a seller's permit, and business license to sell products from your home Yahoo! Merchant Solutions - Open a yahoo store.We have found that purchasing multiple t-shirts for cheap, then having a silk screener, or graphics printing company, print your designs onto the shirts, selling them gives us a larger amount of profit. This ultimately is how companies start out selling, then moving into huge warehouses, and taking over the market. Start small, and move to larger leaps and bounds. The great thing about a third party company, it can build the revenue and designs for printing and selling your own tshirts. In addition, a shop can provide market research, based on which designs sell the most, then you would decide what designs to print yourself.
If you're not a webmaster, you can use a website that offers "website templates" you can use to build a personal website. Create a biography about yourself and what you do/what your goals are for the company. This creates value and allows the customer the chance to get to know you, and relate to the shop owner.
On this site you can try to set up affiliate ads with other companies and receive commission when someone buys something from a linked company through your site. Search in the google search engine for "adsense", or "paid per click" advertising. This way, you can generate revenue for each person who comes to your site, and clicks on your ads. Try and not saturate the web page with ads, because we want your viewers to see your products. Make sure to tag your Designs. Tagging your designs, is a great way for your products and website to come up higher on the search lists of major search engines.
Once you have got your feet wet and have a good number of designs go ahead and transfer over to producing your own shirts. Once you gain some market insight as to what shirts of yours people are talking about, and which designs are selling, you can start to have your own shirts made. Some ways of producing your shirts are: screen printing, heat transfer, Iron on, Direct Printing, and embroidery. You can buy shirts wholesale inexpensively and get your designs printed Fairly cheap as well. Make sure you do the math right produce the shirts in bulk amounts, for less than you would sell them to the public.
Since you've got your own shirts, department stores, boutiques, and online stores can start to sell your product. Take a few personally made shirts around town to see if stores would like to sell your shirts. This is where you have to be a salesperson, and believe in your product, have confidence in your design, and bring reasons why people will buy your shirts into those stores, and they will likely agree, and purchase some of your products to sell in stores.
Its not a bad idea to give some of your biggest fans some free shirts. You're going to need a shopping cart on your page. GoDaddy.com has a wonderful site hosting and shopping cart tools. You are also going to have to be able to take orders and ship to your customers in a reasonable amount of time. I might suggest UPS. or USPS. Whichever you think is cheapest and speediest.
Does having your own website outside of a custom t-shirt shop increase traffic and sales?
Build your Google Page Rank, and Increase SEO by optimizing website
Yes it does. It gives you another platform for your products to be seen. You can submit the site to directories, as a complete entity outside your custom shop. You can use SEO tips and tricks to optimize your website for the highest search engine results. SEO is needed because you can attach keywords, phrases, and words people would search for when they go to sites such as google, and yahoo, or ask.com and live.com, and search for t-shirts or products.
A good idea would be to go ahead and start and join a social networking site for your t shirt company such as Myspace or Facebook or Twitter, etc. to get a easy way to communicate with your public, and find out which ideas or designs can fly with the masses. You'll even be able to write blogs, or bulletins ot inform your friends when new shirts come out, and even entertain them a little bit. We recommend that you add 100 friends a day on Myspace or so to build your brand recognition and cultivate relationships. You can stay connected to your consumers and use blogs and messages to find out what your market wants on their shirts. They can comment on your photos of products you upload and figure out what is popular, and what is not so popular. You can even network orders through those site. Free stuff, free stuff, is always a great way to Bring value to your site.
If you have some cash, give a way some free products in a contest. Promote the contest as much as possible, to have people come to your site, sign up for a newsletter, or blog, or submit emails about your site to their friends, for a chance to win a free product. Great way to increase recognition of your brand, increase SEO, and increase your page rank in google, all leading to more traffic, more looks at your products, and more sales.
One thing many good websites incorporate to drive their page rank higher, and increase traffic to their site, is Links pages. Creating a links page or link directory, is a way to increase your popularity with the search engines. Contact people about exchanging links. You put their site address or URL on your website. They return the favor. You both get links pointing towards your website, and search engines love when you have more links pointing towards your site. More links to your site, the more important it is for the search engines. The more important the website is, teh higher it will show up in search results. (there is a method to this madness, and google's figured it out). If you have a direct link to your website, (ex: a one way link, where some other site, links to your site, and you don't link to them) tends to hold more weight with Google and other search engines. If you have more than one website. Request a link exchange with another website, and ask to place their link, on website #2, which will point towards their website. They get a direct link. Have them put up a link to your website #1, where you want most of the traffic, and you get a direct link to your site. Everybody wins.
Soge Shirts is open to link exchanges, click here to view our links directory.
A Fast way to increase traffic to your website, is directory submital.
Go to Google.com, Yahoo.com, or use those search engines to search for more directories where you can submit your website's url, in order to get index and recorded in their searches. This way, your site will appear in search results, whenever someone searches for terms in your website.
Another technique is using target market titles, descriptions, content and keywords.
- Put key phrases and words based on what content and products your shop will be selling, right into your title.
- Give the description of your shop a good use of keywords and relative phrases to your content, and products. It's a good idea to match your descriptions, with the content in your page as much as possible. This gives you a higher standing with Search Engines. For a good tool on how to check your websites title, description, content, and keywords for SEO optimization, is this site: SEO Central Web Marketing Resources.
- Place keywords relevant to your site's content (the written words and sentences on your website, not contained in ALT tags and images. Words a consumer would type in to find your products.
Lastly, it's promoting your site. Any advertising site is good. If you can do banner exchanges of banners and logo's you've created, in exchange for banners of other companies, on your site, GO FOR IT!. It's a fast and easy way to get free advertising for your shop. Any way to spread your site around is a great idea. Word of mouth, submit your website to search engine companies, and internet advertising on high traffic sites, such as google, ebay, yahoo, myspace, facebook, and other. There are many forums and such for all types of topics, you can create a profile, and use your website link in that profile, and comment on forums, to help spread your site's name and url around the internet.
For Advertising on our own site, we use Bidvertiser they are a pay per click advertiser. Commission junction, Google Adsense, and Click Bank are all great Paying Ad sites that will pay you money to put their ads on your website.
