Top 5 Shop Partner Solutions for Social Media Marketing

Top 5 Shop Partner Solutions for Social Media Marketing

Far from being the latest invention, Social Media Marketing has long established itself in the world of eCommerce. Reputable companies offer the position of Social Media Managers, and these steer their marketing activities into new sales territory on social networks. There are, however, different overall aims and approaches depending on the objective.
We’ve put together a few basic tips to get the foundation for building up your successful media world in place.  
Here we go!


  • Choose your platform

    There are a plethora of online social networks out there in the world wide wilderness. Facebook is by far the biggest player, and then there are your popular allies Twitter, Google+, Instagram and Pinterest. It’s a good idea to limit your activities to one or two channels initially, and utilizing Facebook would surely seem like the first thing to aim for. Then again there are some of our partners like Min Resa Räknas who provide proof for a chance to hit it big with “smaller“ networks. Min Resa Räken’s bodybuilding designs do very well on Instagram with some 11,000 follower eagerly receiving updates from the Swedish think tank on a regular basis!
When joining a network, you should be sure to register your own “company page“ (as it is obligatory with Facebook) to avoid the notion that you could register a private profile.

Meet A Spreadster – Hannes Döring

Meet A Spreadster – Hannes Döring

Hannes is one of the first guys who were employed by Lukasz Gadowski, which means that he joined Spreadshirt shortly after the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Hannes_Foto klein
Let’s start with a classic: Who are you, Hannes?
That’s a tough one! I’m a 30-year old Leipziger.

Leipzig born and bread?
Yes, I was born and raised in this lovely place. Leipzig is a great place for studying, living and working. Having seen many German cities and towns all over Germany during my time with the army, I was convinced that Leipzig is a choice place to live. That’s why I moved back here in 2004. That’s when Spreadshirt were looking for a graphics designer. The add just said “Designer wanted”, nothing else. So I applied for the job, and Lukasz called me the next day to ask me when he could meet me. I talked to him, and the next day I started to work for Spreadshirt. continue reading ‘Meet A Spreadster – Hannes Döring’

Reaching out...

Reaching out…


…to Australia and Switzerland

We’re expanding our global reach! Spreadshirt has now added to new domains – Australia (spreadshirt.com.au) and Switzerland (spreadshirt.ch) – to our ever-growing collection of domains. So the alpinists and kangaroos have their own websites now, which means that our total number of domains has increased to 21. Here you can see all our Spreadshirt domains at a glance.

What does that mean for the Ozzies and Swiss? Well, for a start you can now pay in dollars and francs, which is cool since you don’t need to convert the prices of every single product anymore. And in Switzerland people will be happy to select a language of their choice on the new .CH domain – the vernaculars have been localised to offer German, French and Italian to the Swiss. continue reading ‘Reaching out…’

Oktoberfest - The Bavarian Fun Fair

Oktoberfest – The Bavarian Fun Fair


The Bavarian Funfair

Munich’s world-famous annual beer fest gives visitors the chance to indulge in drinking Mass Beer (a 1-litre jar of strong beer) and eating sauerkraut, pretzels and roast pork. Sounds like a world of fun when you can wear lederhosen and dirndls to blend in with the indigenous folks while merrily swaying in tune with Bavarian brass music and thousands of international visitors. The festival culminates in a big climax of gun-salutes on the steps of the Bavaria monument, marking an end to a marvelous time of 16 days of inebriated debauchery. continue reading ‘Oktoberfest – The Bavarian Fun Fair’
