Myself and two other friends have been serious discussions about starting a t-shirt website. We are leaning towards printing funny t-shirts. Do we have a chance at being successful considering we would be competing with some of the better know sites like busted tees and tshirt hell? Thanks for the input guys.

Hey Socky, welcome to the forums.

The keys to entering such a saturated niche is marketing and branding. Sure, it helps to have some clever and creative designs and a quality product. But if no one knows about it, you won't make any money. Those other companies have big budgets and marketing campaigns to constantly keep up their brand awareness and drive repeated traffic to their websites.

So the questions you need to answer are:
Do you have a marketing plan?
Do you have enough of a budget to create product and educate your consumer?
What is going to set you apart from your competition?
What are you going to do to take market share away from your competitors?

Hope this helps and good luck with your venture!

I agree with kimmura-mma on all his points, but would add this.

Find a niche for funny tshirts, whether that be internet meme's , sports jokes, college humor stuff, drinking, women, cars whatever. Just find a niche for your brand a build it from there. You don't have the cash to be a top competitor all around so build a niche and grow.
