Hey everybody. I have been non essential because of this pandemic. So, I recently decided to try starting a business and launched my new start up called F*COV1D9 please check out the site at fcov1d9.com. I made a 15% discount just for us bimmer owners. Just use the code "bmwpower!" at checkout and you will be able to receive the discount. I'm new to this whole business thing and any help would be appreciated as well.

Lol, either this is super ironic or we're being trolled.

Good luck on the business. It is an extremely difficult and competitive industry to survive in and the key is marketing.

Have had many friends try this and ended up shutting the site down in a few months. Not saying it'll happen to you, but I wish you the best.

Thank you. I agree about the marketing being the roughest part about it. I'm just learning but not going to give up quickly.

You can pay to promote your merchandise to an IG page with a lot of followers. You can also send them some free shirts or something asking for a promo and for all sales you'll give them a kickback if they use a code you make for them?

Just a thought for marketing it.

I actually have some one on ig with 30k followers that's going to wear one of my shirts. I like your thinking though. I've been promoting on ig too but I feel like most people scrolling aren't scrolling to shop, nor are enticed like I am. I buy random things from ads all the time lol.
