Hi there, thank you for taking the time out to read this. We hope you like our story, and also our future plans enough and also we hope that you can donate some money towards our clothing brand, Diamond Entice. HOWEVER, if you do not wish to put some money into this, then we would appreciate it if you would share our project on your social media accounts, or however you wish to share us so we can gain more recognition.
Who Are We?
My name is Mitchell Frost, and my business partner is Aaron McCann.
We are both 18 years old, both living in Australia.
We are both aspiring entrepenuers and as soon as we thought of our own clothing brand, we had to pursue it!
What Is Diamond Entice?
Diamond Entice is what we came up with for the name of our clothing brand, we feel it is a unique and modern name which we hope will be recognized world-wide in the years to come. We plan to stock a variety of clothing & apparel items ranging from Snapback hats to jumpers, hoodies, tracksuit pants, beanies, socks etc..
The Journey So Far
As of now, we have only had one batch of stock in so far, and that was 50 Snapback hats, made up of 4 unique designs. We paid a total of $500 AUD for these 50 hats (which we raised ourselves by saving our own money), and would double our money once all sold if everything went perfectly, however we did endure some expected costs such as fees for stalls at markets which we attended to try and sell our gear, to everyday expenses such as petrol for my car which we used to attend these events. Also, we have invested a few dollars here and there on some online promotion via Facebook, to attract more potential buyers to our Facebook page.
We have attended roughly 5-7 events in total where we have set up a table, a small gazebo tent as well as decorated it with home-made, laminated sighs to try and draw customers towards us. After these events, some good for sales, some we even left without selling one hat! We now have just 7 hats remaining, and are ready to get more stock. However, as we are short on funds and unfortunately cannot fund this on our own, we are asking for your help!
Where Will Your Money Go?
Your contribution will go towards our next batch of stock, this time we are hoping to order in a total of 165 hats, with 11 different designs (15 of each design)!
We estimate that this will cost around $1650 AUD, however as our order has increased and we will be bulk buying as well as ordering over three times as much as stock as the first order, also for being returning customers to the manufacturing company, we estimate we could knock this total down from $1650 AUD to roughly $1200-$1300 AUD (hopefully). We really have set our asking amount at the minimum we recquire because simply we are NOT greedy, you have to give us that one, right!? :)
NOTE: WE CURRENTLY HAVE $600 AUD OF OUR OWN MONEY AVAILABLE TO INVEST (FROM SALES OF PREVIOUS STOCK).
We would also like to apologize for not doing a promotional video, but we simply don't have suitable equipment to do so, nor do we have video editing skills etc..
