Tip of the Day 3/24/14:

KNOW YOUR WORTH

This post is inspired by a post/convo that I had with another fellow fashion company owner.
The one thing that we (business owners in any industry) hate the most is when folks ask for free product.
Shop owners have at one time or another been asked for “the hookup”.
We have all heard the classic “Let me get a few shirts for my crew to rock on stage! It’s free publicity for you. It’s a win-win!”
Or”Let me represent your brand in my hood. You give me shirts and anybody who ask, I will give them your info.”

Really?.. Really? If I give you free product then how do you expect me to survive as a small business owner?
How about you buy a t-shirt and if you are satisfied with the experience spread the word amongst your peers.

Ladies and gentlemen, do not fall for the “okie-doke”.
Know your worth.
If you make a quality product and it’s priced correctly you will make money not give away money.

Shout out to Winston Brown CLASS. for the post inspiration. Go check out their dope t-shirts!

This is your #blackfokapparel tip of the day.

1998
The original STAND FIRM t-shirt.
The year it all started.
This was our first t-shirt.
We never thought we’d be doing this 16 years later.
In fact, we designed this shirt along with the “Still Standing” design to sell at a local art fair.
The proceeds were going to be used to purchase our art supplies for the semester.
Instead we decided to take the profits and re-invest back into the business.
We haven’t looked back since.
