Ive participated in 2 events: DXC (dunk exchange) and I sponsored a big sean concert.
The DXC sucked b/c it was HB kids 15 and under so I didn’t sell anything.
The Big Sean show sucked even more bc I payed $600 to sponser and have my name on the flyer. I sold about $200 worth of shirts and even though I hung out with big sean, he denied my shirts b/c they werent bbc or ice cream. This was before he started wearing high fashion shit.
all in all if youre thinking you'll get more sales… probably not. Was it good for exposure, NOPE. A few people asked about us but nothing significant. I couldve networked better had I not had a booth in the back of the show.
Oh yeah I know about that kind of shit. That happened to my once with a event that was going on at a bar. I sponsored and gave away free stuff. Didn't get any customers out of it. I learned from that.
But I'm talking more along the lines of getting sponsored by an event or national cause.
I want to make breat awareness shirts for November to help the cause but also sneak by brand out there for exposure. Along the lines where you ask a corporate company to sponsor you to make some shirts and they pay for it. How does that kind of stuff work.
