Not much. But seriously, if you have a limited budget, it’s hard to tell what’s the best use of your money. Do you need a website overhaul, or can you get by with a few Facebook ads? Depending on your budget and your needs, the options are limitless. Let’s break things down to make it easier for you to understand what you can do with your money.

After filing the paperwork and creating a business plan, you’ll need to market your business. At the bare minimum, you’ll need a logo, a Facebook business page, and a website.

A quality logo inspires customers who don’t already know you. It helps them believe you’re going to deliver something of quality. Your logo should represent your business and use appropriate fonts and colors while being flexible for use in different formats. A logo will make the first impression for your business, so make sure it’s a good one.

With most people on Facebook, it’s a great place to spread the word for your business. Spend some time writing content that others will find valuable, post some interesting or entertaining pictures and grow your followers. It’s also a great place for people to see what hours you’re open and where you’re located.

A website adds a level of legitimacy that gives people an impression of your business. Customers are able to see what you offer and get a better understanding of your business. A website is more than an online brochure, done right, it can be your best salesperson, working 24 hours a day.

Let’s look at the services offered by VantagePoint, sorted by price.

We can create the design, or use your artwork for custom shirts and accessories. We set the base price, you set your margin, and we add those together to get the retail price for your customers. These designs are displayed on our website and can be linked to from your website or social media page. When customers place orders, we collect them and produce all orders once a week. Then we ship everything out, and at the end of the month, we send you a check for your portion of the profits. Check out our current apparel shops here.
