How to market your streetwear business on Instagram

So you may be sitting on a few pieces of clothing/accessories that you can not find buyers for with your streetwear business. Don’t worry because we are going to resolve that!

Create an Account for your streetwear businessstreetwear business

First you will want to create an instagram account under your streetwear business name. If you haven’t made a name for your business yet that okay. Your business name can be anything. I would try to keep it relevant so people will see what you do. Signing up for Instagram is self explanatory. The site will guide you through each step.

Once you are all logged in you will want to add a profile picture and provide a bio. This lets visitors know that you are selling the items you post. Make sure to include a link to your store, or have an email adress in your bio that clients can contact you at.

Hashtag Hashtag

When you post your items you will want to look at which hashtags are performing best for your item. When you are selling streetwear with a limited supply, or an item that is super hyped, people will be searching by hashtags for that item so it is a great way to connect to targeted buyers.streetwear business

In order to find good hashtags for your product just see what pictures of the same thing with a lot of engagement are using for hashtags. You will see quickly what you want to use.

Build a Following

You do not have to have any followers at all to sell something on instagram. What matters most is that you have it in this business.

On the other hand though you will want to be building a following because it is a waste not to. If you have a following of even a few hundred or thousand people then that is just that many more people that you will be advertising to when you make a post.

To gain followers you will want to do a combination of follow, like, and comment on peoples posts. Search for a hashtag of a brand you like and then just hammer some likes, and leave some genuine comments. Follow people as well in the mix, make sure you abide by instagrams rules though because you can get marked as spam and get your account deleted real quick.

That is a whole other post on not being to spammy, so for now just give it a quick search in google and you will see the dos and do nots. I do not recommend hooking up a follower bot or anything like that to your business account. You do not want to mess up all of your hard work for a silly mistake like that.

Shout outs

Once you get your foot into the community you will start to meet people and make some connections! A great way to boost your following and reputation of your streetwear business, is to link up with other sellers on instagram and do a shoutout for shoutout. You may encounter a fee though when working with larger accounts. Paying for shoutouts can be a great investment though and totally worth it! Just do your research on who you will be working with.

Another great thing about shout outs is that it builds authority when you are working with larger accounts that are already solid.streetwear business

Get real people to vouch for you

Make sure you have your buyers shout you out and leave a review on there instagram. Reputation is key in the streetwear business. Even provide a discount or something in return to do so. Especially in the beginning because you want people to see that real people have done successful business with you. Word of mouth goes a long ways and you do not want to be labeled as a shady business man.Image result for LV bag

The only thing that is left for you to do is to put all of this into action and start flipping some streetwear for real!

How to start drop shipping today!

Okay yeah lets just start drop shipping! But wait we don’t know anything about it so Learn something first before you start drop shipping.

What is it?

Drop shipping is when someone buys something from your store and then you turn around and buy the item directly from the wholesaler or whoever and send it directly to the customer without ever having to see or handle the product.

start drop shipping

You sell the item to the consumer at a marked up price from what you buy it at.

A huge benefit to drop shipping is that you do not have to have a huge warehouse or shop to store all of your product. Only a computer. This means that you can sell thousands of items or huge items that you would never have room for usually.

Another pointer is that you do not have to worry about packaging and shipping each individual order. That would start to require more upkeep, and hiring employees. You don’t want to deal with any of that until you have to. I know I wouldn’t want to be putting thousands of fidget spinners in packages to be shipped each month.

start drop shippingAfter someone buys the item from you, you then buy it from the wholesaler and have them (the wholesaler) send it to the customer.

I hope you are excited!

Start drop shipping 

First you will want to find your niche or decide what you want to sell. It really can be anything you just have to find the market. What is there like 7 billion people in the world?

After you decide what you want to sell, you will need to find your supplier. This can be as simple as doing a few google searches or diving deeper. I would start with google searching for <your niche> followed by wholesaler, supplier, manufacturer, warehouse, etc. You will want to look through more than just the first page I will say.

After you have found a list of websites you believe would be good suppliers, look further into each site finding out details such as where they are located at and how the customer service is. Don’t be scared to email your potential business partner with questions. If you email them and never hear back, I would think twice about working and doing business with them.

For the fastest shipping and most satisfied customers I would try to find a supplier closest to your target country. Although a lot of stores send everything straight from china. That can work as well it is all up to you!

Once you are set up with your supplier you are ready to start selling, and then drop shipping! The easiest, fastest, and cheapest way to do this is through Shopify. They have everything you need.

Start flipping streetwear! Buying and reselling hyped shoes and streetwear is the ultimate hustle because, well you get to be around some pretty sweet gear and you meet some awesome people!

On top of that you can earn a pretty penny once you learn what to cop.

In my opinion the best way to do this is to secure your items on the drop, but this requires skills and research. You will learn these things along the way.

Less hyped supreme drops could be a good place to start, you will just be turning a lower profit.

Why should you be selling on shopify? I feel that everyone no matter what their circumstances are, have been intrigued by being an entrepreneur or owning their own business at one point in time.

Its the only logical way to think after being sucked into a day job.

I remember going to work everyday and just couldn’t get it out of my head of how much the owners were making and how little i was making.

I knew I had to do something to take the next step in my life. Today with the internet, there is room for everyone to have their very own business that has the potential to be absolutely ridiculous beyond what you could ever imagine.

It has never been easier to sell online!

easier to sell onlineIn the old days there was no internet, drop shipping, amazon prime, etc. You had to physically go to the store that sells what you want, go in and purchase the item. But today it has never been easier to sell online.

How easy to sell online

Business owners had to buy or lease a building/space and stock up on merchandise in house, usually demanding thousands of dollars if not more.

Fast forward to the present and you can have virtually anything you want wherever you want all from a phone or computer.

You can open an online shop and sell whatever you want for practically nothing! 2018 has made it so everyone can be successful. Being a business owner is so much closer than you think.

The thing that really strikes me is the potential of selling online. Think of a local store in your hometown. Sure they may be doing well and making for some happy owners, but they can only fetch who drives by the shop physically or sees there ad in the newspaper and decides to come in.

There are billions of people using the internet every day. There are billions of hungry customers waiting to be fed Every. Single. Day.easier to sell online

Your online shop is just like the one on the square downtown, only you could potentially have millions of people driving by everyday!

Just make sure your open light is on (haha)! In perspective; if you had 100 customers coming in to your store everyday and only 5 out of those 100 bought something at a profit of $20 each, then you would be making $100 a day.

Now I think you can see the math when we have 500+ customers coming through the shop. The sky is really the limit.

So maybe you are making t shirts or jewelry or have some kind of physical product, if so that is awesome! You can brand yourself and become the next Yeti cooler.

If you do not have a product then I assume you will be working on a drop shipping model. Drop shipping can be lucrative it is just all about the niche you are in.easier to sell online

Now I know you are probably thinking you have no idea where to even start.

You have probably heard of all of these crazy things like domains, hosting, servers, etc, and I haven’t mentioned any of that. It has never been easier to sell online.

That is because with the ecommerce platform Shopify, everything is right there. You will be walked through each step, it really is as simple as clicking through a few things.

With Shopify you can customize everything, pick your own theme, colors, create collections and categories and just so much more! Just see for yourself by starting a free trial with Shopify.

You have nothing to loose, might as well see what this is all about! It has never been easier to sell online.
