I don’t want to bury the lede so…GET THE T-SHIRT RIGHT HERE!
Another day, another $10 worth of marketing! Although, technically, today we saved a couple bucks.
For today’s Marketing Budget Challenge we had FOUR new t-shirts designed for $5 each. But, in the interest of testing things out before we jump in with both feet we’re only putting up one today. Initially, I had mixed feeling about selling a t-shirt and calling it marketing but the more I thought about it the more I liked the idea of possibly starting conversations.
I’m a big believer in word of mouth marketing (and tend to think of social media as just a mildly suckier version of that) and if you’re willing to wear a Mission: Pic shirt then you’re probably also more than happy to talk with people about what it is (i.e. The World’s Best Photo Challenge App. Duh.) so let’s go for it, team!
I set the price for as low as Teespring would allow me (Which could have been a little lower if I hadn’t included the coffee mug for some reason? But…I wanted a coffee mug so…#sorrynotsorry) and for low minimums. We’re never going to pay someone’s salary with t-shirt sales so this is just a fun way to support Mission: Pic in public!
We’ll revisit how this went later and decide if/how we should post the other three t-shirts later this month. Thoughts?
