You can promote your product in different platforms there is no rule you should follow as i do it and we can not guarantee the success rate based on individual results.

This is my first attempt so there is no much optimization in ads but however it is attracted to audience and i got two sales which make me $40 in profits.

My main focus is to reach more audience with low budget hence i have focused on cheapest countries for Facebook clicks and targeted audience.

In the above picture, you can observe that I have spent only $2 but reached around 2k peoples and in another post the same budget is used but reached only 600 peoples.

The audience we will reach vary based on our target audience.

OK, it’s enough about me let’s get start on how you can do it right now.

when you got an order you will pass it to manufactures for production.

It is just like a drop shipping but in t-shirt business you need to create graphic design then the order has to pass for printing on t-shirts.
