AND Now Let’s Start!
That’s why I created for you 5 Steps about How to Start a Fashion Business with No Money.
Are you ready to create the fashion business and the life of your DREAM?
I don’t want to wait you any longer, so let’s dive in!
1. Start with your WHY.
Why do you want to start a fashion business?
What is your Why?
Why are you so passionate to start your Fashion Business?
If it’s difficult for you to find your WHY, you can learn from my previous article here.
2. Who is your Dream Customer?
For who do you want to start a fashion business? Which problems are you satisfying with your offer?Which secret desires are you fulfilling with your fashion products or services?AND finally which benefits are you giving to your potential audience?
It’s very important for you to have a clear idea of your ideal customers, because if you don’t know for who you are creating your fashion products or services, it will be a nightmare to sell.
Remember that you are not selling, BUT you are helping people, your dream customers with your fashion products or services, because you are solving a problem for them.
For example, you are an image consultant and you are focusing your fashion services on helping women during pregnancy, with a wardrobe consultation.
Why are you solving a problem?
Because women during pregnancy (I know very well because I’ve just gave birth to my first child) feel a bit strange as their body is changing a lot and they don’t feel sexy as before.
They put weight on so they must change their wardrobe, so they might need an help of an image consultant to find the right clothes for them, that can make them feel sexy and beautiful as before.
So you see that you are helping people with your fashion service?
Another example it can be: if you are a jewelry designer and you create beautiful jewelry for petite girls, so your jewelry can be the perfect gift for who is looking for something special to give as a present for Christian communion or confirmation.
Don’t you agree now that you are solving always a problem for someone?
If it’s difficult for you to understand who is your dream customer, don’t worry I have a freebie for you.
3. Now, you must start your BLOG (and you can do it for FREE with WordPress.com or WordPress.org even if you are not a tech savvy) and promote it through your social media.
Now, probably you are wondering but I want to start a fashion product business, like a fashion clothes line, how can I start with no money?You can my dear.
You can use white-label, print-on-demand Companies, drop shipping for custom printed and embroidered products.
So for example, you pay a Print on Demand Company to produce your collections of T-shirts only when you have sold them.
You receive an order of a T-shirt from your customer and you collect the payment, then you send the order to your Print on Demand Company, they will print your T-shirt and ship it directly to your customer.
Afterwards, you pay your Print on Demand Company.
Pretty simple right? No money to invest in inventory before.
You can do the same if you want to start a fashion service business, you can start with your blog in WordPress and then use your social media to promote your services. If you are considering using something other than WordPress, it may be worth doing some research to learn more about what platform would be best for you to create a blog/website. Once you’ve figured this out, you can even start selling your fashion services through Facebook or through Instagram.
If you want to start a fashion business and if its specifically about knitting; then you may want to know the knitting yarn for beginners.
Instead if you want to Open an Online Boutique and you don’t want to invest in Inventory, you can definitely use the Dropshipping System.
Don’t know what is Dropshipping and how you can apply it to your Online Boutique or Fashion Business?
If you answered Yes, then this Ultimate Guide about How to Start an Online Boutique without Inventory and with the Dropshipping Model is for You.
4. Need to find funds?
Want to start a Fashion Business, but you don’t have enough funds on your side? Crowfunding is for you.
It’s the practice of funding a project or venture by raising money from a large number of people who each contribute a relatively small amount, typically via the Internet.
You can learn how to use crowdfunding for fashion business in one of my besteller ebook.
5. Learn from the best.
Learning is the best strategy I can suggest you to implement.
You should find a mentor and learn from him or her.
You may even want to consider the services of a CPA for help with your business’s finances so that you may learn from them the basics of bookkeeping. Such services can be found over here so that you can begin to set your business on the right path for financial success.
Make learning a non negotiable thing for your personal growth and for your fashion business.
You can learn from free from the internet or you can invest in yourself on a paid online course (Like Starting a Fashion Business from Zero) or on a WhatsApp Coaching Session.
You can check my Monthly WhatsApp Coaching Session here.
Both strategies are very valuable, but remember that if you invest in yourself on a paid online course or on a 1:1 coaching session, you will get results in the most fast way, because everything is there for you.
SO, now it’s turn!
