Starting a clothing brand is an dope experience and you’re gonna have a lot of personal growth as well as business and financial growth if you stay with it. The following are 5 tips to help you succeed in starting a clothing brand.
1. How to start a clothing business: Passion
Without passion you aren’t going to get through the tough times and continue on. It’s gonna be hard in the beginning. This ain’t like a 9 to 5 where you get paid for the time you put in. Your gonna put in hours and hours of work without seeing any return in the beginning. Your gonna do this because you are passionate and you’re following your dream and you’ll do anything to make your t-shirt business a success.
2. Have a professional website
Your website is really important to your long term success. You need to have a professional website or else no one will take you seriously. No one wants to buy from a website they don’t trust.

3. Find a dope clothing printer.
Lucky for you you don’t have to go through what most do and try loads of different screen printers before finding a great one because we brand you will take care of you. When your confident about your product your gonna be able to sell them better. If you got a product that’s just okay your not gonna feel confident promoting it. You really need to believe in your product.
4. Plan everything and do your research
Your doing that right now! Planning and researching is such major key part starting a clothing business. Check out your competitors, see if anyone is doing what you want to do.
- Is there enough of a market to sell your shirts?
- What shirts are you going to print on?
- What is your demographic?
- How are going to get traffic?
- Are you going to sell at craft shows or events?
There are a lot of questions that need answered and planning and researching your clothing company is major key for success. Also if you don’t make plans and goals it’s like leaving on a trip without a map. It’s gonna be very hard to getting to the destination if you don’t know how to get there.
5. Know your market and customer
Knowing your market and your customer is a must. I feel like a lot of people believe they have a bangin’ idea but they don’t connect with their market. No matter how much you wanna go do your own thing you need to remember you need a customer to sell to. You can’t be a tesco. What I mean is you can’t sell products to everyone. There’s already is a tesco and there gonna beat you on prices every time so you need to compete on something different. You need to define your market and go after your niche in the market place. You need to produce products that are unique. If you know your customer and can reach them and get them what they want you will be successful, FACT!
