More like, is it possible to do it if you’re a beginner? Let’s find out.

— ✨Hello! ✨You’re currently reading about my venture into AI-driven fashion startup with ChatGPT part 8. I also work with We help you set up online pages on our website and assist you with marketing in general. Do not hesitate to contact us at

Me: Now, i have been given a suggestion on which wholesaler to approach to help me with my customizable fashion startup. I would like to get into contact with one of the people in charge. How should I go about doing this?

CGPT: To get in touch with the wholesaler, you can follow these steps:

  1. Start by researching the wholesaler’s website for contact information.
  2. Look for a dedicated email address or contact form for business inquiries.
  3. Craft a concise and professional email introducing your startup and expressing your interest in collaborating.
  4. Clearly outline how your customizable fashion startup aligns with their business and why you believe it would be a beneficial partnership.
  5. Include any relevant details, such as your business plan, target audience, and potential order volumes.
  6. Follow up politely if you don’t receive a response within a reasonable timeframe. Persistence can be key in establishing contact. Good luck!

Me: How far should I go as a start? I’m pretty sure we shouldn’t write a full business proposal right off the bat. Maybe give me an example of an initial correspondence

CGPT: You’re right, it’s not necessary to provide a full business proposal in your initial correspondence. Here’s an example of an initial email you could send to the wholesaler:

Do you see anything wrong in the above? For the context, I did start off by telling ChatGPT that I work at an AI-driven startup. Its response shows how it doesn’t make a natural assumption that a human advisor will probably make: we’re a small startup with little resources, possibly cash-strapped.

So, I asked replied ‘come on, i’m not in the position to be “impressed by your extensive range of customizable fashion products.” Can you make it sound humbler?’ Let’s talk about its answer in the next post.
