This is part of a 10 minipost series called "10 Tried, Tested, Proven Ways to Make $100K/year Selling T Shirts Online" that will help you become a better t-shirt seller.

Gossip is a Bad Habit

You probably shouldn’t gossip but you definitely should take advantage of Hollywood gossip sites!  Do a quick search for top hollywood gossip sites and you’ll find plenty. Here’s a sample:

Celebrity Twitpick Example

Same idea as Google news here but this will be celebrity specific.  See what’s trending, who said what, who wore what, whatever outrageous things are going on.  


  • Naturally if a celebrity is wearing something, fans will want to wear similar things.  So make something similar!
  • Sometime celebrities scribble notes on t-shirts and wear them to make a statement.  Maybe there fans will want to mimic that statement!
  • A funny quote can make a great t-shirt.
  • Maybe a silhouette of a woman holding a drill inspired by this photo?

These ideas are coming off the top of my head looking at a single post of thousands of new posts out today on these sites.  Whatever your idea is… it doesn’t have to be perfect. Again, you’re looking for something that is a current event associated with *now*.  In other words, you’re looking for something that can inspire a t-shirt that does not yet exist in the market. The shirt itself may sell. It may become a hot seller.  But even if not, this will drive traffic to your site and cause your long-term sellers to sell. This is the “secret” that hopefully you’re starting to pick up on!
