Gamers and YouTubers are Master Marketers of their Domains
Boston – 02.03.2011 – If you ever wondered how YouTubers are monetizing their channels or how gamers are taking advantage of multi-player popularity, you need look no further than Spreadshirt. Spreadshirt is a leading online platform for creating, buying and selling individual me-shirts and other customizable apparel–and savvy online brands like Angry Birds, RuneScape, iJustine and “web celeb” The Wheezy Waiter–are now using the t-shirt as a key element of their marketing plan to make money and/or interact with their communities in a very personal way.
YouTubers, entrepreneurs, organizations, and major brands are leveraging the Spreadshirt platform to open their own free and independent online shop where they create and sell custom t-shirts and other clothing or accessories with their designs, logo or text. Embedding the shop in a website or blog and the use of social networking tools allow shop partners to reach their community and fan base, providing them with customized products they identify with and love to wear.
Creating brand advocates through an iconic piece of clothing—the T-shirt—adds viral dimension to any marketing campaign and allows savvy marketers a new way to connect their content with consumers offline. Brands can easily open a customized Spreadshirt shop, risk-free, at no cost to them—and the rewards are infinite.
