UPDATE_NEXT STEP OF STEEMIT POPULARITY: Steemit T-SHIRT for everybody for FREE

in steemit •  2 years ago

How about the next step in making Steemit more popular?

It is interesting to get your feedback on that business idea.

The idea is pretty simple - to give each Steemit user a T-Shirt with Steemit logo for free or for lowest price. I got very rough calculation from my friend who works in the one of top US t-shirt distribution company.

HOW TO PRODUCE A T-SHIRT

  1. we place a large order in China or Latin America manufacturing company
  2. then we transport it by ship to US storage (Miami)
  3. then we organize the distribution of the smaller batches to the main cities
  4. then people grab it from the special storages

T-SHIRT SPECIFICATION

  1. quantity - 100 000 + (prepaid order)
  2. size - S, M, L, XL
  3. colors - one or two
  4. logo - the best one that we approve

COSTS

  1. we have to try to get around $0.3 per one item
  2. then we add transportation, taxes, storage and other costs
  3. finally we have to get the price around $0.5 per unit
  4. total costs will be around $50k

HOW WE WILL FUND IT

  1. A friend of mine manages Trade Finance company and I hope he will provide us Bank Letter or Bank Guarantee for production period
  2. Final payment I will describe below

I see the following option how to fund it:

  1. users pay for it around $1-$2 per t-shirt.
    1.1. for example they transfer steem or btc to special account
    1.2. or pay when they grub it from the stock
  2. we gather pool of investors who want to develop Steemit and understand benefits of that deal
  3. new or current users get a free t-shirt when they add 20 STEEM POWER to their accounts

BENEFITS OF THAT ACTIVITY

  1. Steemit’s popularity goes up
  2. Steem goes up
  3. New account registration goes up

PS

  • it is just an idea. We have to calculate and double check each step before starting
  • amount that this article will get will be first donation into T-SHIRT fund
  • I am ready to donate around $1000
  • T-shirt manufacturing starts when the iOs version is available. Every t-shirt will have a QR code to install Steemit in one click

Those workers in China or Latin America would be thrilled to hear about this since they will earn their paycheck.
There is a guy from Sweden that goes around his town promoting steemit by word every day and doesn't get deserved recognition. Try finding him and unite he had the ​same idea about steemit products (shirts, mugs, hats, etc.) but at 10-20 times higher rates.

Can I book one now?:)

And seriously, this is a brilliant idea!

I would add though some info on the t-shirt, not only logo. Imagine if you see it T-shirt with the logo and just email address of something - this could be literally everything, from a grocery store to an online fashion retailer.

We need to have a great slogan on the T-shirt to attract people!

Like " the only social media where your content gets what it deserves - the Money"

:)

Yes I agree. Good slogan.

Or REWARD YOUR CONTENT
Or REWARD YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACTIVITY

Excellent ideas - looking forward to input from others as well about this!

Great idea! I think you can start from 1000 t-shirts.
And you can give it away for example on Time Square)

Thanks. 1000 is not enough for good price unfortunately.
