In the spirit of One Hundred Jobs being an exercise in online job proliferation, and a good case study for others trying to do the same, I'm going to distribute on two channels and sell via Printfection AND Cafe Press. Let the market decide which service it wants to use! I am voting Printfection, because I think the product will end up being cheaper for my clients (You guys!). We'll see when my first products go up in about a week.
Keep the t-shirt suggestions coming, please! Any ideas or phrases about jobs, working, business or social media are encouraged, especially if it's funny! The sooner you submit your idea, the more likely your slogan is to end up on one of our custom tees.
Speaking of custom orders, George the Spanker made this "generous" offer:
After reading your blog today, I had an idea to help promote your OneHundredJobs effort. I see they sell women's boy-briefs at cafepress as well as T-shirts. I will buy you a T-shirt that says "OneHundredJobs" on the front, and a pair of boy-briefs that says "Assume the Position" on the rear. In exchange, you would agree to make a video of yourself modeling them. I think that would definitely be worth a couple of hundred hits for you on YouTube, and it would give me some cheap thrills.
Will this be a $100 job? Sending me a payment and I order them myself?
Can I do it in the signature One Hundred Jobs Impact font? White on
blue or white on black? Or do you prefer black on another colour? What
Hmmm... for $100, I think it would have to be the thong panties, not the boy-shorts.
My idea was simply to pay you the costs of printing. And yes, you could print them any color scheme and font you prefer, and you would have to order them yourself — I am certain you would not give out your mailing address for me to place the order!
I can't believe I asked him what colour scheme he wanted. Ha! He very obviously wants something else... in flesh tone!
I don't know if I'll take Georgie-pie up on his offer or not. I could make my cute little modeling video into a kind of advertising for my t-shirts and underoos, but George is still paying less than my rate for producing custom content. I even have a dance in mind à la Risky Business...
By the way, Anonymous, I won't do "it" for $100, nice try!
Should I make a "Kahn is an artist and you are a moron" t-shirt too?
IN OTHER JOBS:
I finally opened my trading account at CIBC! While opening my account, I learned that the banking representative opens very few self-directed investing accounts. That doesn't surprise me, because I think most people, especially women, see investing in the stock market as a complicated hassle. I want to prove otherwise.
My account should go live in my online banking in about a week. I'm going to have to start researching hot stocks soon. If you have any stock pics or investment tips, please feel free to pass them on via my comments.
I can has $100 on a printed tee AND in mah pockitt,
