Right I've come up with a sort of method which I want to try out. I'm going to post exactly what I'll be doing here, heck I urge you guys to try it, hopefully it works:
Basically here in the UK at the moment there is a massive trend of printed t-shirts/jumpers/hoodies of celebs/quotes and generally anything that stands out a bit. Now normally setting up a site like this would take time and promoting it would be a hassle, but theres a way around this both:
Firstly there is a site called: http://www.zazzle.com where you can set up your own store, design your own prints and earn commission on each item you sell. You can also set the amount of commission you want to earn - the price to the user is dependant on the commission you take. It also handles with the printing/delivering of the items so literally all you have to do is make some good designs and sell them.
Here is a design I'll be using (I'd appreciate it if you didn't steal it lol):
Now it printed on a sweatshirt for example:
I'll presume you understand what I mean now. You can just create a ton of these will popular celebs and quotes etc.
Now you set up your store (follow the easy steps that zazzle.com shows you) and create a brand. I've called my brand " # Hashtag " and there is a reason for that. I'll be promoting this via twitter.
Now you have your store and products you need BUYERS! This is the clever part of the marketing, we will be using twitter. Twitter has NUMEROUS other " clothing brands " already on their platform with a large client base, and thanks to twitter we can access them for FREE.
Firstly you have to create a twitter profile for your new clothing brand (this step is self-explanatory). Once you have done that, you'll want to sweet images of all your products onto your twitter feed. Now all your stock is available for all the twitter users to see without leaving twitter.
Now you go onto one of these popular established clothing brands and you go through their followers and you begin to follow them. You should start to receive followers (if your designs are good). All you have to do is continually keep following more and more people and interact with the followers you do get. You can offer them incentives to retweet your products etc. to get brand recognition.
Now as the days go buy you should start to see some sales come through. At this stage what you should do is ensure everyone who has bought one of your products to take a picture of them in their new t-shirt/hoody and tweet it - again free promotion. Ideally if your designs are good and catchy there is no reason why you shouldn't begin to see a decent amount of orders come in everyday. And if they are really good, your brand could snowball into thousands of followers and a nice little business.
Try it out guys and enjoy.
I'll be post my results of this method in the coming days!
If you will update your thread - I will follow your journey
thats interesting! I'll follow and wish you good luck !!
Looking forward to your success and wish you best of luck
As a content writer you can make some adsense amazon review sites to earn some passive income
Hey man, i'm impressed with your progress so far. If you had 10k days, i'm sure you can have those and more again. Just remember that Donald Trump went from a few billions to a few billions debt and again to 2 billions. I like that you take action and work hard.
Though, i would recommend to think out the box now, like you did with facebook, to bring back the 10k days. Good luck and i will follow the progress.
I'll be sure to be checking this on a regular basis.
Jup inspiring enough to post my first post.
Really curious about upcoming results.
Hope you keep us posted.
Hey op, nice to see another fb spammer, but damn u made tons of $$$. pm'ed you
I'll be updating it everyday. That I assure you of!
Thanks. I'll need it lol.
I've never really gotten into the amazon game. I guess I'll need to do some research on that. Thanks!
Hey man! Thanks for the kind words. It's true, I WILL build this back up again!
I hope it makes you take ACTION!
Wow! I'm honoured. Do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have!
Haha, that was a long time ago my friend, in another life
Already have. Could we maybe exchange contact details?
I'll PM you once I get 15 posts
I hope you keep this up to date!
Good luck man
keep updating. Quite interesting man!
Very interesting journey, i'll be following this... maybe use some ideias, if you don't mind
Very interesting, good luck!
Is skype cool?
i have a question
What is your profit margin ? For example you sell a t-shirt of 25 dollars, how much you get of this ?
You can set it to any amount you want - it just increases the price for the customer.
I've set it at $4 per t-shirt. (This is a long term earning prospect, it will take time to develop I think - if at all lol)
