Hey everyone, ixArcher here, I just wanted to give a few tips and tricks to being a successful clothing designer on the Roblox platform, @MissMae15 has made a post similar to this (but more focused on actually designing), you can go check it out if you’d like! These tips I have gotten from multiple youtubers, including Avaeta and icyella, and some from myself.
Ღ Take advantage of your opportunities! - A lot of new clothing groups are springing up, and you should apply to every single mall or group you see! (that is hiring designers), this gets your name out there, and you could be accepted!
ᲦMake friends among the Community - You can work on collabs, get advice, and sometimes friends feature people in their homestore!
ᲦWatch speed designs - This can help you gain more knowledge and even a few techniques!
ᲦFind your designing style! - I don’t recommend copying the styles that are on the front page or “trending”, design whatever you want! Your passion for designing will last longer if you design what YOU would want!
ᲦSell your clothes for only 5 robux! - cheap prices = more customers!
ᲦDONT COPY CLOTHING - This one should be obvious, but its crazy how many people still do it. If you want to be successful, this is not the way to go.
ᲦSocial Media is your best friend - Using social media for your benefit is important! Posting creates engagement with your designs!
ᲦOpen Commissions - Commissions are making custom clothing for others, many designers do this, and its a way to practice your designing and get robux without having to work long term!
Quality over Quantity, have motivation, and don’t design for a quick cashgrab! It WILL NOT LAST
Making Your Clothing Group
ᲦChoose a short and creative name - Something easy to remember, not too complicated, and of course something you like!
ᲦHave an appealing and creative logo - Bright and creative logos bring in members! High quality logos are also very appealing.
Ღ RUN ADS - Running ads is so important! This helps your group get more exposure. It’s important for your ads to be bright and appealing to attract more members. 300-500 Robux per ad works best for me, although I like to do a test run of 100 Robux to see the CTR of the ad.
Ღ Make a Homestore - New members will most likely join your homestore and buy more clothing, I’ve noticed having a homestore is more appealing than just clicking through rows of clothing on your group.
Ღ Do qotd’s - They keep your members engaged and coming back to your group daily
Ღ Promote your group - Promoting your group on your profile can guide fans or followers to your group, and making it your primary group may also help
Ღ Ally with other groups - This can help you gain members and exposure from other groups, you should ally with groups that have a similar clothing style as your group
Ღ Save group funds - Saving group funds will help you pay for ads and/or designers
Ღ Hire designers - Hiring designers can help create more designs and ideas, and it can help keep your group active and full of new designs. This can also help because you will have more designs to earn robux. Although this tip is more of a personal preference, you don’t have to hire any if you don’t feel like it!
Ღ Upload consistently - Uploading consistently will have your customers coming back and seeing if there’s anything new. Try to upload at least once a week, but more would be amazing! Just make sure to keep your clothes quality, don’t rush it!
ᲦBe consistent - You should run ads often! If you’re short on robux, try running ads for your group atleast 1-2 times per week.
ᲦBid a few hundred Robux - I find that bidding 300-500 works best for me, you don’t have to bid thousands a day! If you’re short on robux, 100 is just fine too!
ᲦMake the clothing big - People should see what you’re advertising! If they see clothing they like on the ad, they will most likely click it!
ᲦHave a variety of ads - This is good so people don’t see the same ad over and over again! I recommend running 1-3 at a time.
ᲦDont add too much text! - Adding your group name or username is good for an ad, but don’t overcrowd it with words! It becomes hard to read.
ᲦProgress takes time - You need to get familiar with the program you are using and practice! Your first design will probably not be amazing, mine was horrible lol. Dont be upset if your first design doesn’t turn out how you envisioned it! To be able to improve, you need to practice!
ᲦRobux - don’t design just for the robux! While robux is important in designing, it shouldn’t be the main motivation. You will most likely lose your passion for designing!
ᲦBe creative! - In designing, you can really make whatever you want! (assuming it follows roblox’s rules) Push yourself to experiment! You might like something new!
ᲦDesign Block - Don’t even get me started about design block. IT WILL HAPPEN, and it sure isnt fun. You might be tempted to copy clothing or give up designing because you don’t have any ideas or motivation, but dont do it! Sites like intagram and pintrest give the best ideas! Watching speed designs, etc. also could help you get that spark of motivation again.
ᲦSuccess is different for everyone - Everyone has different goals, and different definitions of success. Don’t put your worth into how much Robux you’ve made or how many sales you have. Having fun and doing what you enjoy is the most important!
ᲦComparison - Guys, please don’t compare your designs to others, and I know it can be really hard not to! Don’t compare your designs to someone who might have been doing it for years! Comparison will NOT benefit you at all.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT. You will not be able to become successful overnight, It takes hard work and dedication.
Everyone’s designing journey is different. You need to decide what your goals are and work to achieve them!
