My Sell T-Shirts With Teespring Review

Product name: Affiliate Marketing Beginner: Sell T-Shirts with Teespring

Link: t shirts online

Owner: John Piteo

Level Of Experience Needed: None.

Price: $24.90 (Price was cheaper on the Udemy App + there’s an upsell for a more thorough course for $249 for which you get a discount if you completed the beginners course first.)

Overall Rank: 8/10



The course provided by John Piteo, Sell T-Shirts With Teespring, is a very quick interesting course that can be found on Udemy. It basically teaches you the very basics of how the Teespring campaign works and how you can create and sell your own T-shirts.

If you want to make a little extra cash on the side and don’t want to store any hardware at your house before selling it, then this course shows you how to get going.

You don’t need to create a huge email list or even a website to get going with this course which makes it quite interesting. All you need it an email and a Facebook account.

If you’re a complete beginner and never sold anything online before this is a very encouraging way to get involved in my opinion.John Piteo

John Piteo is a great instructor and full time internet marketer. He claims to do the T-Shirt business part time but shows proven records of making a good amount of money.

He’s been in the business for several years, which proves that he has some knowledge and experience that can be trusted.

Who Is Sell T-Shirts With Teespring For?

As mentioned previously, you do not need any previous instructions or knowledge in selling things online. As a matter of fact the beginners course is actually targeting complete beginners.

This is for everyone that would like to make a little money on the side with small efforts. If you’re already experienced in selling T-shirts online then maybe this is a good additional source of information for you but probably unnecessary.

If you really want to get involved in making money online but don’t have the patience to learn the basics of affiliate marketing such as:

And all the other work that typically comes with affiliate marketing, then this course might be quite interesting.

You don’t have to devote yourself on this type of business either, meaning you don’t have to spend hours in front of a computer while running this business.

Once you set up a campaign it can pretty much run for a week without you doing anything.

Although I don’t believe in get rich quick schemes, this probably get’s close to a ‘get money quick scheme’. Although John Piteo clearly makes a few thousands with this technique, I think it is very achievable to make a few hundred dollars rather quick with it.

The only risk you take is spending around $20-$30 trying to set up a campaign which could fail.

This is the only off-putting part of the course. However setting up a website and hosting it etc. can easily come up to way more than that amount.


Trainings and Tools

So since this is a course found on Udemy, you will have a typical Udemy-like course for it. This means that you will have 17 lectures with each lecture being a few minutes long.

I really enjoyed the course because not only does the teacher have a very soothing voice, he also makes it very interesting and easy to follow.

You can move along and do exactly what he does, since he uses a screenrecorder to show what he’s doing.teespring beginners course

The course is kept very short (1.5 hours) and you can literally take action right after watching it (he recommends to go through it twice before doing so).

What you need to remember is to give this training a fair shot and try out several campaigns before making some money. This is only shared once you’ve bought and started the lessons of course, which lures in a lot of subscribers to this course.

What I really liked about the course is, that he show’s you how to read and analyze the data you get from your ad campaigns on Facebook.

He lets you know exactly when to keep the campaign running or when to shut it down and try a new project. This lets you save at least some money for a failed campaign.

He also shows you how to create successful T-shirts and how to come up with great ideas.

Really successful campaigns can easily be done again and he shows you how to do that as well.

If you look at the reviews of the course there are only positive comments, for both the beginners and advanced course and it is really easy to understand why.positive feedback

Once you’ve bought the course you have a lifetime access to it and you can always go back to watch particular lessons to refresh your memory. No monthly fees apply to it which is another huge benefit.

You can also watch this course on the Udemy application witch your smartphone or tablet if you wish.

One really great feature of this course is that you can always leave behind a comment if you have any questions and the instructor will reply within a day or two usually.

Pros vs. Cons


  • Very easy to understand step-by-step guide
  • Super quick course
  • Can get you going within a day
  • Incredibly cheap course
  • No monthly payments. One time payment with lifetime access
  • No storage or inventory of your own
  • No customer service etc.


  • Not as easy as he makes it sound
  • Have to invest quite a bit more money to launch a successful campaign

Final Verdict

Overall I think this is a great course for anyone who wants to make a quick few hundred dollars online. I have seen reports of people who make incredible amounts of money with T-shirt campaigns.

The course is so cheap and clearly explained it is definitely worth to spend that small sum on it.

Having said that, I do believe that he leaves out a few key details that are explained in the more advanced course. This is of course a very clever sales strategy and since he’s been in the business for years that was definitely his intention.

However John Piteo does take his time to answer questions if you have any! This is always a good feature for any online course, as getting stuck can be the most frustrating thing.

If you really want to succeed with this strategy, I would suggest you try at least 10 campaigns before you give up.

I think it could also be very beneficial to buy the advanced course. You do get a good discount if you watch the last lesson of the beginners one.

Overall I rate this course with a 8/10. I didn’t give it the full mark because of the missing pieces in the first course. I also don’t like that you have to pay for ads etc. but that’s just me.

I like to pay things once and having all the resources to succeed. But with Teespring I doubt this is possible as you need traffic quickly for a short period of time.

I definitely recommend this course and if you want to get a feel for the internet market world this is a good entry. It comes with trial and error and huge potential, which is the hard truth of the online world if you want to succeed.

There is a low risk potential which makes the course so attractive to me.

I hope you enjoyed this review and if you have any questions or thoughts, please feel free to leave behind some comments.

    • I never actually made a dollar with this course but it definitely seems possible. I just didn’t feel motivated to pull it through. I’m not sure how scalable the whole Tshirt market is these days though!
