Cool need more cheap ways to advertise.

I just started my clothing company. It's called Borderless Outfitters. I currently advertise on social media and a little bit with google adwords. I currently only have 2 sales.

What are other ways can I can advertise? I'd like to get a lot more sales.

I started Borderless Outfitters to help promote World Peace, so maybe some of you know some good world peace forums?



I have a very low budget, so I could use as much help as possible.
Thank you!

You can do SEO for your business along with social media. So you can drive traffic to your site and increase visibility of your website.

The cheaper methods take time. I agree on seo along with social media marketing for online advertising.

Do the leg work! market stalls, collaborate with local bands, clubs, bars and etc. These jobs are the "oldschool" and more boring ways of generating business, but they work. It's a numbers game.

Remember you're not selling your time for money, you're using your time now to build a business for the future. While you're a small business, you can afford to spend lots of your time promoting, don't take that for granted.

Default Re: need more cheap ways to advertise.

Yes I also think that you should do seo, social marketing for sell. But I think at first you should try to sell to your friends, relatives or local markets,neighbors.

Thank u.

I agree with what others have said about doing the legwork. Get out and find local organizations that could use your products. Go to festivals, join meetup groups, and look for events that your target market would be interested in.

Take advantage of YouTube. If you decorate your own apparel, do a video showing how it's done and upload it to YouTube. Promote how to buy your apparel at the end of the video.

Start a blog about world peace with a link to the YouTube video and your website at the end of every blog. Don't make the blog posts about selling your stuff, that would be a turnoff. Make it about issues that you think are important and relevant to the topic. Post REGULARLY.

If you donate a portion of your profits to some type of world peace organization, perhaps you could garner some media publicity by getting a local magazine, newspaper, radio, or tv station to do a profile story about you. Be prepared to tell them why world peace and your contribution is important to you. Some media organizations are committed to providing a certain amount of time to community news, which is where you might be able to work your way in.

Try to get influence on Social Media platforms. Share your t-shirt design on social media and ask friends to share it & reviews it or comment on it.

Share your t-shirt on respected facebook groups, Google plus communities and LinkedIn groups. Create a rich pin for pinterest.

Hope this helps.

Default Re: need more cheap ways to advertise.

website no worky

is basic seo/keyword searches even important anymore?

maybe in the good old days when searches actually produced results,
nowadays there are precious few relevant results produced from searches

companies today can now pay search engines for top results via any keyword they want to pay for
how are you going to compete without a decent advert budget?

so it's fine and dandy to say seo, and have people think they can just spend months of key wording images/posts/products, begging search engines to crawl their site, etc.

only to have the first 24 pages of a search direct a person to everywhere but your site,
and let's be honest, who really digs past page 3?
crackpots like me, but not normies

so that leaves you either spending a bunch of cash (that most start-ups lack),
or you look at the tangible/boots on the ground approach mentioned above

seo has been sliced and diced, tranched and bundled with fannie mae and freddie mac sub-prime mortgages,
and sold as aaa invesment vehicles, traded by quants at the speed of light, making $0.00001 per trade
but they trade a quadrillion per day, do the math, we are unwittingly ruled by algorithms and their masters

Default Re: need more cheap ways to advertise.

I have to agree with the rest of these guys. I come from a web design background before going into printing and design so I was able to conjure up a pretty decent website with full seo within a day and it's literally made me zero dollars.. Great product pictures make a huge difference as well.

On the other hand we have made more than 4k USD in a 6 hour festival and got out in front of people and made lasting relationships. Relationships are were your B2B sales will start and end, but you have to get out and do the legwork to get those tho.

Get out there and get to know people, make connections, and more importantly than anything.. make sure you have a good product that people want to buy. Don't take your products to market until they are READY!!!

Marketing won't do diddly if your product sucks and pushing a product out to the public that is not ready for scrutiny will only turn the wheels in the wrong direction and make it harder to get their attention in the future.

Cheaper or free marketing is organic. Takes time but can pay off. Build email, phone lists with your blog and get a good SEO ranking.

Keep at it. Build quality contacts and always ask for referrals from your customers. If you give good service, they'll more than likely return.

Social media is great but it's overused... People are becoming less influenced by ads because of the sheer quantity of ads theyre exposed to. Focus on relationships and connections.
