Hi everyone! For the past 6 months, my friends and I have been building a fashion brand. We're working with physical products and shipping them out ourselves. Last month we ran a crowdfunding campaign and raised over $12,000 in 3 weeks (woop woop). Our next move is to get our products into physical stores, so after our next shipment arrives, we're going to start working with a bunch of local boutiques. The issue with this is that the boutique stores usually want Net 30 payment terms (basically they pay us 30 days after we ship our batch of products to them) and this is terrible for cash flow within our business. Boutique stores will help our brand grow TREMENDOUSLY which we are extremely excited about, but we will need extra cash to help keep the business afloat between when we send products to the boutique stores and when we get paid. So with that being said, I partnered with some graphic designers I knew and started a graphic design company (keeping it very vague beyond this). I'm trying to get up to $2k per day to help fund the fashion brand which means I have to make around 35-45 sales per day. Sounds like a ton of sales now, but my marketing builds upon itself and really uses word of mouth & social proof to spread far and wide. I bought my domain and built the site last week. Just started to play around with my first few email marketing tactics to test some things out and made my first $29.50 sale within like an hour and let me tell you I AM AMPED because that sale was much easier than I expected. Once I get everything finalized, I'll scale my marketing efforts and see where this thing takes me! I'll try to post updates every day or every few days to keep you all in the loop. Not going to give specific info away about the business name or business plan, but feel free to ask some general questions on the thread. Also, something that would be fun to me would be for you to post questions about your own business and I'll try to give you some advice! Day one: I got some good feedback from the first few potential customers I talked to. Over the next few days, I am going to expand on a few different things on my website and also increase the prices for a few of the graphic design packages we offer. After that, I'm going to scale up marketing efforts x10.
