Potential PARTNERS scroll down for the business premises, philosophies, strategies, and to PICK YOUR PRODUCTS!!
TshirtWhatever.com is JUST ONE example of our "Multiple Eggs / Multiple Baskets" approach [how we plan to re-use the same resources, processes, technology, whatever to launch/test MANY "Starter Startups!" - A/B Testing EVERYTHING (via Collaborative Competitions!) - while simultaneously RE-THINKING traditional perspectives - on Startups? Side Hustles? Labels? Goals? Success Metrics? Status Quo Bias?]
Would it be worth the time and effort to create any ONE of the concepts below, individually? Probably NOT.
HOWEVER, it's a totally different story - and a key part of our "Whatever Network" Master Plan - if we MANAGE it all COLLECTIVELY (while MARKETING it all INDIVIDUALLY!)
Products as Content as Marketing as...
New **S.H.I.T. from ReThinkingWhatever.com -- **Strategies, Hypotheses, Ideas, Theories :)
For the record: NO, we do NOT actually think T-shirts are a great business (crowded space, no barriers to entry, etc.). HOWEVER...
...there may not be a single one of our 1000+ “Products” that mathematically / statistically makes sense to bet on (to put money into — or even to put TIME into) — as a Startup, as a Side Hustle, or even just as a Hobby — regardless of whether your goal is ~$10 Million or ~$100,000 or even just ~$1000!
We have some innovative new strategies — based on some unique experience and relevant insights — that have helped us to change our perspectives, change our approach, and — to be honest — we think could be GAME-CHANGING for Idea Stage / Early Stage entrepreneurs…
A) What if we Change our Perspective on GOALS, BENEFITS, and SUCCESS METRICS for “Products”…
…perhaps expanding goals, benefits, and success metrics (beyond just sales, revenue, profit) to also include value more traditionally associated with CONTENT and MARKETING? For example:
Lead Generation? Customer Discovery / A-B Testing? Brand Awareness? Brand Personality? Establishing Relevance / Expertise? Customer Entertainment / Engagement? Customer Loyalty / Evangelism? Boost Web Traffic? Gain Fans/Followers? Re-Targeting Data? — etc. etc.
Comedy genius, Mitch Hedberg (RIP), has a classic observation on escalators — that they can never break, they just become some other (also useful) thing. We like to think of our PRODUCTS that way
OUR "Whatever Network" products CAN’T FAIL!
IF they don’t generate revenue, they simply become content or marketing for the products that DO generate reveneue…
B) … What if we Change our Perspective… and shift focus from TOTAL COST (calculations/evaluations) to AVERAGE COSTS?!?
Dramatically Decrease your Resources Required (dollars, hours, people, etc.) On a *PER PRODUCT* Basis!
(via #MultipleEggs in #MultipleBaskets benefiting from #SharedResources and #EconomiesOfScale)
Hypothetical Example: Launching/testing TEN (10?!) Online Tshirt Shops might sound RIDICULOUS… And we agree — it is ridiculous — if, If, IF, *IF* each is being launched/tested individually.
But… COLLECTIVELY?? As part of our Product-Content-Marketing-Whatever Network? Each benefiting from Shared Resources, Economies of Scale, and a Cross-Promotional “Network Effect” — collectively launched/managed via ONE (1) e-commerce account, ONE (1) MailChimp account, ONE (1) Google AdWords / Facebook Ad account, ONE (1) Google Analytics account, ONE (1) Social Media manager, ONE (1) account / license / expenditure OF ALMOST EVERYTHING [that would have required TEN (10) if they were launched individually!?]?!?
Your *PER PRODUCT* COSTS (money, time, etc.) are DRAMATICALLY REDUCED — making it no big deal there is no significant revenue/profit resulting directly from any given product (or any 3, or 5, or 7, or even 9 of the 10 products?!)
C) … Applying some of our ViralWhatever.com EXPERIENCE, EXPERTISE, and LESSONS LEARNED:
(“You Gotta See This!” vs. “You Gotta See These!”)

A few of our CURRENT Head-to-Head A-B-Competitions:
The "Wordy Shirty" Challenge is a Pretty Simple Concept...
Each month (eventually each week?!), we will have 2, 4, or 8 Teams (or individuals), competing for sales/profits (each with exact same marketing resources & advertising budget). Current Example:
NumberWhatever.com Battle: A vs. B
Strange: I went forward in time... to view alternate futures. To see all the possible outcomes of the coming conflict.
Quill: How many did you see?
Stark: How many did we win?
Strange: ... ONE.
And, remember, there are only...
WHAT THE... ?!?
Page Still Under Construction...
Check back soon and/or contact us to get involved:
All of the above will have a different person or team running it - as a real "Starter Startup" - competing with each other, but also collaborating on what's working, what's not, best-practices, etc. (because, at the end of the day, we're all on the same team!)
www.PitchingForPartners.com to work on any of the above!!!
***But, remember, we're constantly A-B Testing EVERYTHING, so...
Why not share resources, duplicate everything, and also test...
#MultipleEggs #MultipleBaskets #SharedResources #EconomiesOfScale #CompetingWhileCollaborating
P.S. And if we're already doing WingDings... and Binary... is it really THAT much extra time/effort to also do Morse Code? or Braille? or Chinese? or Russian? or...?
P.P.S. And if we're already creating/marketing ConfusingShirts.com, why not also use it as an umbrella to test 5, 10, or 20 other stand-alone concepts that could also make sense under that same theme of "Confusing"...
P.P.P.S. Be sure to ask us about how "The Whatever Network" would not only cross-promote the MANY other TshirtWhatever.com brands/shops, but also tying together multiple product/content/whatever "verticals" - for example ConfusingShirts.com & ConfusingCards.com & ConfusingStuff.com under yet another layer of resource-sharing via ConfusingWHATEVER.com! [Seriously, our MASTER PLAN goes ridiculously deep!]
MANY "Fill In The _____ Shirts" Concepts for You to Choose From!
P.S. Many, MANY More! Also, be sure to ask us how we plan to A-B-C-D Test our several different methods of HOW to Fill In The Blanks!!
- A) www.LivingTheStartupDream.com vs. B) www.WordToYourStartup.com
- A) www.ShartShirts.com vs. B) www.MyShartDontStink.com
- A) www.SpelingShirts.com vs. B) www.SpellingShirts.com
- www.aBarbecueStainOnMyWhiteTshirt.com (part of www.YouHaveSomethingOnYourShirt.com?)
- A) www.ItLooksLikeaDuck.com vs. B) www.ItQuacksLikeaDuck.com
This will not be for everyone,
but sometimes we A-B Test
"PG" vs. "Rated-R"
And, as you'll notice is our pattern, we are constantly cross-promoting related products/content - even though it may be an entirely different team of entrepreneurs running these other sites - for example, the following from ImageWhatever.com, CardWhatever.com, and StickerWhatever.com...
