Best Way To Market Your New Brand?
Hey Hypebeasts Forumers!

I have my own clothing line called effulgence and wondering what is the best way promoting, marketing and advertising your brand to spread to the masses?


Twitter is a big tool for us, Facebook as well, success using ads may vary depending on what site you use, before you pay to have your ads on a site you should do a lot of research on the them. Start off slow develop a good logo that can be easily recognized and start off by putting it on stickers and buttons, it will be easier to get people to rock with those than a shirt in the beginning.

hey guyss im tryin to start off my own brand you know just make shirts(you see the street wear nowadays and you rock it but there's some more stuff you'd like to see out there thats not there and well why not just create your ownn shit wear what you wanna see naw meanconfused i just wanna make simple stuff and the name for the most part i call it Heirloom but i feel thats too simple i wanna incorporate it with another word but cant seem to find another word. what do you guys think? anything positive i would appreciate thanks!


Before you jump into a business I'd suggest that you ATLEAST take a class on entrepreneurship or english. I'm trying not to fully judge you but by the sounds of the post you just put together you are not educated enough to be running a successful business.

In an attempt to be positive here, I like the name heirloom. Please though, figure out the rest of the name yourself. Asking other people to give your brand an identity is the wrong way to approach things. An authentic brand creates an identity from their own hearts.

Good luck to you.

They look good! Do you have any pics of a proto that you have been using for awhile? Would love to see how it breaks in.

Good luck!

Thanks, Victor. Here is one shot I snapped the other day of my lighter case in natural that I've been using for about 9 months. Never oiled or dyed, just evolved with everyday use. I'll grab some photos of other products when I get a chance.

Question to all my snapback wearing people in here:

Do you prefer snapbacks with colored underbills (green) or the underbill kept the same color as the hat?

I think it really depends, I think if its vintage or retro inspired or has a sports theme, then a green under bill can look good but if it more of modern, simple design then corresponding colors usually work better. I thin if you wanna play it safe just go with the same color under brim.

So you guys are still debating over the "Box Logo" thing...

Anyway.
I have officially sold 100 of these prints. My number at this point won't match those of the bigger names out there but I just wanted to let some of the guys in here who are just starting and still building success can and will come. We you put your heart into it and make whatever you do your own, people who appreciate it will buy it. The market is big enough for everyone. Some will not last and some will but if you do do this because you love it rather then to make money then your heart is in the right place.



And some some "Essential" shots I was playing around with. Nothing to serious right now in a way these photos are a little corny and didn't come out as well as I hoped but it's trial and error when building a successful brand.

If you're gonna release 'menswear' i think you do some stuff that we would usually associate with menswear instead of just the common graphic tee.

Tees look good doe, no faults there.
