    Hi, guys. I'm finally posting my first Journey on this forum.
    I do this as an attempt to actually force myself to update and stick to things (Hope you'll hold me accountable)


    What did I do so far?

    • Created a Facebook page
    • Had a logo done for the page
    • Grew the page to 5k likes (I managed to do that in a very short period of time, but haven't posted a lot since, this is something I need to improve on)
    • Created an Instagram account (that unfortunately I couldn't run due to problems with emulators and proxies)
    • Created Pinterest account
    • Hired 2 designers for the T-shirts and "merch" because I can't design to save my life

    What's next?

    • Decide on what to go with: Printful or Teespring
    • Advertise the designs already created
    • Of course, post more content
    • Sell enough to buy a cheap phone to fix the Instagram issue with (Since my PC just says Screw You and your plans!)
    • Hopefully reach even $10 a day, soon. (I think that's around 1 sale per day)
    What's my goal?

    In the beginning, honestly, to make enough money to be able to create a WordPress website with, so that I can link the website to the Social Media profiles and have affiliate offers as well as the T-shirts or other merch selling. I will of course give people value (If you consider funny articles or articles with information, valuable enough)
    This was inspired by the whole BHW community, but one user in particular (whose username I forgot because I'm awesome like that) This user posted about his own journey or method I believe. POD as well and he said he promotes the t-shirts via FB ads, kills the ads in 1 day if they don't convert (or something like that) If this sounds familiar to you, dude, you rock.

    The BHW Community is the MVP. Thank you, guys for all the help and I hope that with your help I'll manage to stick to it and be motivated.
    I don't want to be spoonfed, but If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears. It's my first journey and I'm a little nervous.

    Thank you for reading!

    (I hope this is in the right section)

    Thank you! Sorry for the late reply, I've been a little busy with other things.

    Update 3/24/2019 :

    • I listed the T-shirt.
    • I pinned the T-shirt on Pinterest
    • I am continuing to grow the page and doing some research for Facebook ads.
    Spent: $12
    Profit: $7

    From free facebook traffic.

    Update 3/27/2019:
    • I've been following people on Pinterest to try and grow my account
    • I paid for another design, It's different, I'll see if it sells
    • Set up Twitter
    Spent: $15
    Profit: $0

    I still have not figured out how to fix my Instagram issue, So there's no update on that end.

    Hi, i'm trying to get into POD too.
    For instagram part, you can either
    - Buy an account
    - Go to a coffee shop or internet shop (if you are in third world countries like me) for fresh proxy
    - Go to your friends' office (if you have a friend who do startup)
    Best of luck to us
