How to start a tshirt business

  1. 1. If you are going to start your own t-shirt business online the first thing you need to have is passion. It is extremely important in any business venture you take on that you have a passion for it and believe it’s something people want and need. Having such strong and positive feelings about the work you do will help to get you through the tough times you may encounter before reaching that ultimate success. Another important thing to think about is that you shouldn’t have a “get rich quick” mindset. The t-shirt business isn’t just about throwing a logo, design or phase on a shirt, having it go viral and selling a million copies overnight. If that’s what you’re thinking, then you may want to look elsewhere. This is a business you should be proud to work in everyday to express yourself and to help service your customers with great products. One thing that’s really fantastic is that it isn’t really hard to start your own t-shirt business. If you’ve had some unique ideas or ever thought to yourself, “That would make an awesome shirt!”, then it’s totally possible for you take your ideas to the marketplace. There are of course, a few things to keep in mind. You definitely want to know the market you are targeting. Since it’s totally unrealistic to believe you can sell to everyone, try to narrow your target market down to a specific, key demographic that will always be interested and loyal to what you have to offer. Make sure to do some real world calculations about how much money you’re going to need to invest. Starting a business usually costs about twice as much people think it’s going to cost at the beginning. It’s certainly better to overestimate startup costs than to end up underwater before you can really get things operational and profitable. Remember, it’s totally cool to start off small. Oftentimes when we get an idea we may think it’s the greatest, most important, never before seen business opportunity that will single handedly end of your financial troubles. But there is no need to
  2. 2. rush into things too quickly. It’s best to try new ideas in small batches. Test the waters. See how things go and what types of reaction and sales you get. Get some real feedback from your customers. Listen to their ideas and suggestions. Get a feel for what the market wants. Then, after seeing the results you will know exactly when you can scale things up to increase your revenue. Having your own t-shirt business can be fun and exciting for some extra money or as a full-time income source. If you really believe in your ideas and have the passion and wisdom to follow a strategic, well thought out plan, the sky’s the limit for you. Now go out there and make it happen!
