Do you want to start a fashion blog but don't know where to begin? It is easy to start a blog but difficult to be successful in it and make money from it. In this article, I will tell you how to start a fashion blog with no money or with little investment as well as share some tips on how to make money from your fashion blog.
What You'll Need To Start Your Fashion Blog:
There are 3 most important things you need to start your fashion blog:
1. An Attractive Website:
Firstly, you need the right platform to start or build up your own fashion blog. To begin with, you can choose platforms like Blogger, WordPress etc. You can start a free blog on these platforms but they are very limited in terms of features and flexibility when it comes to growing your fashion blog. If you are a complete beginner in the blogging world, I would suggest you to start a free blog. Once your blog grows a little, you can invest some money in your blog to buy your domain name, etc.
2. Unique and Useful Content:
People will only read your blogs if you offer them some good knowledge. Be unique with your content as it is the key to be successful. Your blog should have your own voice. Running a blog means, you should regularly come up with new ideas. Be consistent and post informative and helpful blogs regularly. You can visit popular fashion blogs to gather topics, collect ideas and get inspiration. After that, you should use those ideas on your blog by adding your own unique voice, style, and flavor to it.
The most challenging part is to bring visitors to your website. Once you've written a few articles, start advertising to your family, friends etc and get feedback from them about the content. Initially, you'll have to advertise your blog on Facebook pages, Pinterest, Instagram etc. Instagram is a good way to increase your following. Also, optimize your blog to get more visitors like working on SEO, backlinks etc.
How to Make Money From Your Fashion Blog:
1. Display Ads Using Google Adsense:
Most websites on the internet rely on ads to generate revenue. Google AdSense allows you to easily display ads on your website and make money from your blog even when you're just starting.
2. Affiliate Marketing:
Affiliate marketing allows you to recommend products you love to your audience. You will get a referral commision every time somebody purchases a product by clicking on your affiliate link. Amazon Affiliate is one of the most famous affiliate partner.
3. Brand Promotions:
Reach out to brands, fashion startups, etc to partner up with them. If you have a huge following many brands will approach you to write a post for them or add their banners to your website. Brands also pay you to upload an Instagram post for them if you've got a huge following and engagement.
