Default Getting Started - Advice

Hi everyone,

I am brand new to clothing business industry and a I just had a few questions

- I am currently hiring a designer from to create designs and I plan on using a local print store to print about 50 of the shirts to start. They quoted me around 7-8$ a shirt for starters. I plan to sell on Shopify and advertise on fb.

Does it sound like I am on the right track? Working and being a full time student I don't know if I will have a lot of time to print these shirts by hand that is why I reached out to a local print shop. If you have any advice what to look out for or perhaps a smarter way of getting started please let me know I appreciate ay advice I can get .

How much were you planning on selling the shirts for?

In my experience many people underestimate how expensive it will be to get a profitable system going with Facebook ads. A lot of advertisements lose money until you can really figure out targeting and optimization to bring the cost per conversion down.

This is made harder if your cost of goods is already a large chunk of the sales price.

Still, this could be a good way to test the market before finding a way to get your shirt cost cheaper.

Use this. You got plenty of potential buyers right in front of your nose.

Facebook marketing is tricky and it can be money drain.
