9 Insider Tips for Marketplace Designers


No matter what people come searching for on Spreadshirt’s Marketplace, they are sure to get pages and pages filled with designs. There is, however, still potential for some nice earnings in a few niche areas that remain a little sparse. Give the people what they want but can’t really get, and you’re in line for dollar signs.

We’ve conducted a bounce rate analysis to determine whether our site visitors could find what they came looking for. If a Spreadshirt customer doesn’t get what he came for, he usually closes the browser window once his keyword search proved unsuccessful. And if a particular keyword amasses a high number of bounces, you can be sure that this keyword holds untapped sales potential. Take a look at the 9 most popular search terms that have left customers yearning for more:

  • Slogan
  • Superhero
  • Evolution
  • Beach Volleyball
  • Ugly
  • Old School
  • Cowboy
  • Retro
  • Famous Quote

Just see for yourself what you get when you look for these keywords in the Marketplace. Do you see some potential to fill in what could be missing? Maybe they were just tagged wrong, but there surely is a lot of room for improvement. If you think you can do a better job than what you see, here’s your chance to get on the gravy train. What’s more, it’s always a great idea to anticipate occasions for which people will be looking for gifts. The Marketplace is a hotbed for gift seekers, so give this a thought when you’re at the drawing board.

We look forward to seeing your creativity in the Marketplace! Have you noticed similar keyword glitches yourself? We’d Love you to share your experience with other designers in the comments below.
