Did you know the fashion industry is a $20 billion a year business? And the home based business industry receives revenues of over $420 billion a year? That’s more than the pharmaceutical industry, food industry, and consumer goods combined! The following 3 steps are the same used by many of today’s top fashion moguls. If put to use, they will work for you.
The first step is to start a social networking page on Myspace or Facebook. Be sure to let it be known on your page that you are in the fashion business. Ask people to submit their ideas to you for garments to introduce into your clothing line. Add as many people as you can to get the word out!
- The second step is to start a t-shirt company. This is what propelled many others like Baby Phat, Phat Pharm, and fubu into super success. Be sure to list your t-shirts for sale on your networking page. You may want to start a webpage to link to your social networking page. This can be done by starting a free web blog. Search the internet. There are plenty of sites that will provide one for free. If you prefer a paid site I recommend tiptopwebsites. Then you have links put on your t-shirts which direct people to your web page. Once you have t-shirts listed on your page, leave comments for your friends and let them know you have some cool t-shirts for sale, and provide the link.
- The third step is put into effect as you begin selling t-shirts. First, you contact the people who had the best ideas and make a deal with them to share in the profits. Now you gather all your garment designs and pick the best ones. At this point, you contact a local sewing shop or search for some online and have them to make your new garments for your clothing line. As the garments are made, you list them for sale, along with your t-shirts, on your web page. The links on all your t-shirts will direct more customers to your web page. Now you will start sending emails to managers of clothing stores and offer them bulk deals on your merchandise. Give them a link to your web page so they can check you out. The first time they see someone wearing one of your t-shirts, they will think of you.
