Fashion Business

Meaning and Purpose. 

Fashion business basically means selling products or services that are related to Fashion. You can sell products like apparel, shoes, and makeup products. Fashion is a highly competitive and exciting industry. You can be a fashion designer, fashion stylist, entrepreneur, or consultant. 

Fashion in itself is a broader niche. It is one of the niches that is popular right now. If you have skills, passion, and knowledge about Fashion, you should start a Fashion business. It’s a good and profitable niche.

 

 

 

How can I get started? What are the ideas for starting a fashion business?

So this is the question that most of the starters ask. 

It’s not always easy to start with a new business/ project. But once you do it for a few months, it eventually becomes easy for you. And I think it happens with everyone. No one is born perfect. PRACTICE makes a man perfect.

All the million-dollar companies that exist today were not famous during their starting journey. They started their journey from scratch. But today they are known as Million Dollar Companies. All this happened because of the hard work and their business strategies. 

If they can do it. Why not you? Even anyone can do it. 

If you don’t understand where to start, I recommend you to start with blogging. Read more books and start writing your thoughts and publish blog posts. Through blogging, you can gather a lot of information about a particular topic- say Fashion. 

Must do:-

  • Create groups with people who are in a similar niche. 
  • Notice what fashion trends are going on in the market. 
  • Understand your customer avatar(buyer’s persona). And start talking to people to understand their goals and pain points.
  • Search your competitors. 
  • Understand how they are engaging with their audiences. 
  • What strategies they are using in their businesses?

When you are done with the above things, I want you to go ahead and start your actual  Fashion business journey. Because now you have gained a lot of knowledge. And I am sure that now you will feel confident to start your own business after doing the above exercises

 

Now have a look at the ideas for starting a fashion business.

Basically, I have 3 ideas for your Fashion Business.

Ecommerce store:-  This is one of my favourite. You can create an online store for your business. Most of the businesses are shifting from their physical store to e-commerce store. This is because an eCommerce store gives a lot of flexibility to your business. And one of the main reason to start your E-commerce Store is that people love to shop from the comfort of their home. According to our research, there are an estimated 12 million – 24 million eCommerce sites across the entire globe, with more and more being created every single day.

Dropshipping:- Dropshipping is more convenient than creating your own E-commerce Store because dropshippers don’t have to take care of inventories. They sell their products directly from the manufacturers to the customers. The only difficult step which I personally found in dropshipping is searching for a good and trusted manufacturer/supplier. 

Physical store/ boutique:- If you are the one who is not looking for an online store then you can start with your own physical store or a boutique. The merit is that you will be able to look at and understand your customer’s buying behavior in a better way. The demerit is that it is not as much flexible as e-commerce stores and dropshipping. 

So I personally recommend you to start with either your own eCommerce store or with dropshipping. 

Let’s talk about Fashion in this digital world. 

According to research, we found that online presence and digital marketing has become very important for many businesses including Fashion. So, if you are planning to start a fashion business or any business, I recommend you to grow your business with help of digital marketing. You might have heard about google ads, facebook ads, SEO, social media marketing, and many more. All these areas are covered under Digital marketing. You may say that these are the categories and sub-categories of Digital marketing. Your business must have an online presence so that it may be visible to people in different geographic regions. 

You must adopt the latest digital marketing strategies to grow your business. 

 

Competition.

Always remember- ‘ Don’t be sheep and follow the herd’. It simply means that if someone is adopting a strategy that is costly, you need not follow the same, even if the strategy is powerful. Do brainstorming and come up with a new and more powerful strategy that suits you and your business. I guarantee you that it will give you the best results.

Here I will not give you the details of the competition going on, rather I will put focus on how you can sustain in this competitive era. 

Competition exists in every industry. Fashion industry is full of competitors. Be smart. And win the game in this competitive industry by adopting powerful strategies. You need to check your competitor’s strategies but you need not practice the same strategy if it doesn’t suit you. Just take an idea from their strategies and come up with your own more powerful strategy. I am again repeating, ‘ Don’t be sheep and follow the herd’. 

 

How much investment do I have to do in starting a fashion business?

If I am not wrong, I think this is the question that troubles you the most and stops you from going ahead. Right?

You need not invest 1000$ in starting a business. During your starting stage just invest in buying a domain name and hosting plan, or Shopify if you want to use Shopify for your business. This is the must investment that you have to do if you want an online business. Rest other than this depends on you. If you wish you can invest in running ads as well. If you run it properly you can get a better ROI.

At first, you can start with few products. Don’t start with high-priced products. Because in the initial stages you need to do brand awareness and you need to make trust in the heart of your audience.

 

Is it too late or too early for me to start a business?

While reading this long article you might be questioning yourself in your mind, “Am I too late for doing this, or am I too early?”  

It’s never too late to do any business. Not even it’s too early. I repeat if you have skills, passion, and knowledge, then you should not worry about this question. 

When a 14yrs old boy can start a business, why not you? Similarly when a 52yrs old woman can start her own business, why not you? 

It does not matter how old you are or how rich you are or how educated you are. The only thing matter is YOU. If you want to start a business, obviously you can. But if you don’t want, then nothing can help you.  

So in this article, I covered all the basic concepts about Fashion Business. I hope you like it. Let me know in the comments. Also, you can tell me the topic on which you want me to write an article.
