How many times have you been walking down the street and you saw a T-shirt or a hoodie with a design that made you wish you owned it yourself? What was the message that you got from the apparel? Maybe it was a football club that you also support. Perhaps it was a singer or a band whose music you also collect.
Often, we gravitate toward clothing that helps us share with the world what our individual passions are. Everyone loves to talk about their favorite sports team, or the music that they love best.
And any of us who were fortunate enough to attend university can talk endlessly about the amazing friendships we developed along the way, or the inspiring teachers who spent countless hours trying to improve us as we grew into respectable adults. That type of affinity runs deep and triggers great passion. You can market custom t shirts to these groups very reliably.
If you have a message that represents someone’s college and university affiliations in a positive light, they are almost certainly a buyer for any clothing that you can put that on. If you can find a talented designer, and have them create the look that someone will be proud to wear, the marketing is almost as easy as an afterthought. Set the proper price for it, advertise it on Facebook, for example, and the sky is practically the limit.
Here are some things you want to watch out for. First of all, don’t use any trademarks for which you have not been granted written permission. Nothing hurts worse than buying thousands of T-shirts only to find out that you’ve used a contested trademark and cannot sell a single one of them. Ouch!
Once you have obtained the proper permission, make sure that you have that special designer who can create a clean and pleasant creative. Then share that design with a handful of apparel suppliers to see what your available options are. Don’t let price be the only consideration when you select a provider. Firstly, get familiar with their manufacturing standards. Are they able to size properly for worldwide markets? Can they do 100% cotton?
These are important things to consider, because customer satisfaction is far more important than your profit margin on any one design or order. What you want is to please your customers thoroughly!
If you do, you can count on them coming back for more orders, and isn’t that the mark of a long-term business anyway?
Finally, experiment carefully with paid advertising. Invest modestly at first, and split test your advertising to find out which ads are providing the most bang for the buck. Once you have locked into a successful advertising method and the message, scale accordingly and enjoy potentially crazy profits!
Here’s a critical question when picking out onesies for babies. Should you buy them with zippers or buttons?
It might seem like an odd question in the light of day, but if you’ve ever fumbled around in the middle of the night when the lights are turned down, trying to change the baby’s diaper, it will all make sense!. Your baby might need the freshening, but it will also most likely not be crazy about the idea of waking up in the middle of the night for a clothing maneuver. For this reason, you will want to minimize the amount of disruption you calls. This will be one of those times when the zippers or buttons conundrum becomes crystal clear.
To be sure, you have plenty of options deciding what to buy. It doesn’t matter whether you choose zippers or you choose buttons, the selection is almost overwhelming. Retailers of baby clothing are literally everywhere. We often shop first by looking at the Gerber site to see what is current in baby clothing styles. As you’ll soon see, it’s much more difficult to narrow down your selection, then it is to find an adequate number of choices.
Whenever you do look at potential purchases, try to remember that function trumps form when you’re dealing with a baby. Cute clothing looks like it will be fun, but if it makes it difficult for you to change or undress the baby, the good times are going to come to an and very quickly! And in the middle of the night, all you really want to do is quickly get to that diaper and fix the problem. We recommend zippers because of exactly these situations. If you’re not working with much light, trying to find and even up buttons can be an absolute nightmare.
Zippers, on the other hand, have only one way to go, and as long as you’re careful to keep them away from the baby’s skin when you are opening or closing, it’s hard to go wrong. Find onesies that zip all the way up or down, and you will have an easy time making those midnight diaper changes. It’s stressful not being a parent, without compounding the problems by purchasing inconvenient clothing. Your baby only wants simple routines, and it’s a lot less loud and insistent when at peace. That’s why we find zippers to be a lot less problematic than buttons in baby clothing. Bear in mind, were not trying to make a fashion statement here!.
If you absolutely must go with buttons, we wish you all the best. Hopefully you’ll be able to sleep in every once in a while.
Games that feature multiplayer fall into two camps. One, they’re too tough to learn because you’re forever up against trigger-happy 14-year-olds and so you die before you have a chance to learn how to play. I wonder just how much time is lost in this world waiting to respawn!
But every once in a while there comes a multiplayer game that’s fun and varied. The maps are big and have great places to spawn and get your bearings BEFORE a sniper’s bullet finds you. And THAT is PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds! The maps are great fun and you often don’t die for a good long while – which is, after all, more darn fun!
