Since I was young I’ve wanted my own clothing line. I am now bringing that desire to reality. Keep reading and I will show you how to create a clothing line for yourself as well.
Oh and it’s free.
What Attracts Me To This Business?
First off what I love about having a clothing line is that you can take an idea in your head and then see people wearing it.
I love creating Art.
All forms of creation are Art to me.
When I create Art I feel on top of the world.
If I do not create something daily I start to become mortal.
So to create is to become like God.
The second reason I am attracted to having a clothing line is because it is a simple business.
All you need is the right equipment, material, and ideas.
Keep it in that order.
Once you have the right equipment then you need materials.
Ideas are easy to create.
Starting Your Clothing Line
The thing that keeps most people from starting their clothing line is money.
Of course you know that that is just an excuse.
Instead of telling you what equipment to buy and blah blah blah let me show you how to start a clothing line for FREE.
You don’t need equipment or materials.
All you need is a computer, Internet, and Ideas.
Do You Remember…
If you can remember I did a shirt giveaway several months ago.
I sent out 5 shirts and paid for the shipping.
You may have thought I was just trying to get rid of some shirts that I had, but I had a secret motive.
What I was really doing was testing the Market.
I wanted to see how many of you were really interested in T-Shirts.
So I gave away free shirts because let’s be honest, you love free stuff.
The response I received was better than I thought it would be.
I sent out the 5 shirts and had to turn away the remaining people.
That was Phase One of my clothing line.
Now we are in Phase Two.
Phase Two is now in affect.
Over the past few days I have been building a web-store.
I now have 10 different designs that I created on it.
I hired a designer off of Fiverr to create more complex graphics.
Guess how much all of this has cost me so far…..
That $20 was spent on hiring a Freelancer.
The rest of the web-store and designs only cost me time.
Here are one of my designs:
I will now further test the Market.
Using this Free platform I will see which shirts sell the best.
Instead of wasting thousands of dollars on products that won’t move, I can now see which will be Profitable.
How Can You Do This?
Okay I have talked about myself enough.
Let’s talk about you.
How can you start your own clothing line for FREE?!?!
It is so simple you’ve probably overlooked it.
The platform I am using is called Teespring.
Teespring is a platform that allows people to launch clothing line campaigns without ever having to spend money on creating the product.
You can even create your own Store-Front to showcase your clothes.
The thing that I like about Teespring is that once your campaign turns Profitable you get to keep the money.
After they get their cut and the shirts are paid for, you get to make cold hard cash.
I love the idea of Teespring.
It now takes the barrier of entry away from Creators.
But like with everything else in life there are some cons.
Cons of Teespring
The two problems I can foresee with Teespring are:
- How Many People Actually Buy Clothes Off Of Teespring?
- How Hard Is It To Get Noticed?
Since it is so easy to upload your Art to their site that means that there could be 20 shirts in front of yours.
I don’t yet know how they rank each shirt.
But if people have to go through 6 pages just to see your shirt, your chances of making money are slim to none.
From what I’ve gathered most people rely on Facebook Ads.
In my opinion Facebook Ads are a waste of time.
Of course I also don’t spend thousands of dollars on them so I could be wrong.
I ran a cheap Ad to show you my results.
I didn’t spend much, but here it is:
Maybe if I spent two thousands dollars I might have seen a decent ROI.
But for the time being I do not have the resources to spend on something like that.
How Will I Overcome The Cons
Luckily for me I have an established website already so I will not rely on Facebook Ads.
I will do most of my advertising here on Way of The Olympian.
Don’t worry I won’t invade on your experience here.
No pop-ups etc.
Instead, I will create a page on the Menu for you and then promote it in my articles.
If you haven’t joined the Olympian Newsletter do so.
Not only will you get any promotions I’m doing, but you will also get Updates before other people.
I may even offer some Free books or reports at some point.
I feel that 99% of my sales will come from you.
Instead of relying on faceless Ads I am putting my money on you.
If I create good shirts, I will know because of the conversions.
If I create bad shirts, I will also know because of conversions.
If you have a Creative urge to start a clothing line just like I have, here is your chance.
Start putting your Art out there.
All you need to do is give your Time.
You don’t have to invest any money into equipment and materials.
I look forward to people using this article as a way to launch their business.
I haven’t seen anyone else on this side of the Internet talk about this subject how I have.
But then again I don’t read many other people’s content.
Until Next Time Go And Dominate.
