    I joined BHW awhile ago and started with a few journeys foolishly thinking I would be able to bank in a few weeks and live the life I dreamed. I was wrong. I spent a year trying 1000 different methods to make internet money, and probably made around $5k - $10k total since joining BHW with my different ventures. At some point I realized that blackhat was short term income, and I wanted to build a long term internet income. One year ago this month I started an Instagram page in a niche I'm passionate about, and I started it with the idea that I wanted to make it into a clothing line.

    I was able to build the page to 120k followers and another page with 103k followers in the same niche so I decided to start my clothing line. I've started small by launching my store with one design and five color options. My plan is to save money I make from sales and reinvest it back into the clothing line expanding my mens lineup and starting my woman's clothing line as well.

    I get the shirts in a week but started a pre-sale four days ago placing 2 - 3 ads on my Instagram pages each day since starting.

    Day 1: 1 Sale, 2 shirts, revenue $48
    Day 2: 1 Sale, 2 shirts, revenue $58
    Day 3: 1 Sale, 1 shirts, revenue $28
    Today: 2 Sales, 2 shirts, revenue $56

    Total Revenue: 190
    Shirt Costs: 41.65
    Shipping Costs: 56 (one international order)
    Shopify Fees: $6
    Profit: $86.35

    My goal is to sale on average 10 shirts per day because at that point I should be making a nice side income or even be able to start looking into making this a full time gig.

    I'm planning to do some photoshoots in the next few weeks to make some nice looking custom ads on my page. I also plan to create an apparel page for my brand and start giving it shoutouts from my my two big pages to help it grow.

    I'll do my best to keep this journey up-to-date.

    Wow this is something I wanted to try out also. Want to give me some pointers as far as your design? I'm in the car niche. Do you have a business or brand page or are they both niche pages? Also are you dropshipping your shirts or carring inventory?

    There's also someone from here who's selling t-shirts on Instagram and so far he's been very successful.

    OP, hope you get more than 10 sales a day. Keep us updated! :)

    My design comes from looking at my competitors and doing some similar stuff. Both pages are niche pages with my brand name in them. I'm starting a separate page as soon as I can do some model shoots that will be dedicated specifically to my apparel line then I'll use my other pages to send build my new apparel page.

    One of the days two different people each bought one shirt. That's two people that paid for shipping instead of one.

    Today's stats (it's only 11am so hopefully it changes)

    Today: 1 Sale, 3 Shirts, $68 Revenue
    Shirt Cost: 17.85
    Shipping: $8
    Shopify Fees: 2.04
    Profit: $40.11
    Total Revenue: 258
    Total Profit: $126.46

    Very impressive, you havent bought shoutouts or anything? Also Is 1 sale, 1 person, or 1 shirt sold? It is kind of confusing because you have 1 sale but 3 shirts, please explain so i can understand better, and are you drop shipping?

    This is what i originally wanted to do, but instead started a aliexpress dropship site with minimal success, Also i may use printful not sure they seem pricey

    Yes one sale as in one customer and three shirts because they ordered three shirts. I'm not drop shipping, I ordered 500 shirts and will do the work myself to save on cost.

    TO keep the international shipping fees at minimum maybe try teespring?

    Maybe. Send me a private message.

    I'm selling fitness clothing so I don't want to use teespring. I need to be sending quality clothes to people so they hopefully buy other items as my clothing line expands. I can't piss them off with shitty clothes. I don't mind paying the international shipping fee on larger orders.

    True but when you starting off with something like this there are other approaches before you go all out and drop a few k on a product or business that may not work.

    im hoping it does work out for you I'm just saying it ain't a guarantee and your going to kick your self when you could of just pmdropshipped the product first to test it out
