So how to start with a fashionblog?
1. Getting a domain name
Think of something special or brand-related domain name for your blog. You should go to a domain name registrar and search for available domains to buy a domain. Some of the best providers are Hostinger, GoDaddy, Bluehost, and Namecheap. Go for something with fashion in it, or just use your own name, like for example iammandyb (Mandy Buddenberg is my real name).
2. Create a website blog on WordPress
Getting a professional outlook for your fashion blog is absolutely crucial to have a well-functioning website with good technicals—WordPress powers around 40% of all websites worldwide, and it’s super easy to use CMS.
There are hundreds of already made templates you can choose from. It is truly the best place to start your blog, especially if you do not have prior website building experience. But you can also choose for a web designer on Fiverr for example. They have good and affordable web designers that can create an unique blog for you.
3.Setting up social media profiles
After creating your fashion blog, you need to set up social media links on all the significant sites, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. And what do you think of Tiktok? Show your latest outfits in video’s on TikTok. TikTok is the trend for the youth in 2022 and some gain fame and got rich because of it. Is TikTok taking over Instagram?
Choose a profile name that is similar to your blog’s domain name. Thus, you will be able to gain more visibility and links from search engines to your domain.
Publish your latest posts on your social media profiles as soon as you publish them on your website. Increase your likes and followers on your platform. You can advertise for this. Of course making a blog succesful means a little investment. It does not have to cost thousands of dollars, but with 1000 for advertisiment you can come far and reach a loyal fanbase.
4. Discovering the best places to share your content
First, write some killer content. Content that Google loves so you will get traffic through Google. You can think of the latest fashion trends etc. Brainstorm your ideas. You can also hire a copywriter from Fiverr or sites like Upwork.
Then, networking is crucial. You need to collaborate with major players in your niche and start communication with them. One of the possible options to improve your online visibility is to publish guest posts or banners on relevant websites to gain exposure.
You should also aim for gathering a good maillist for email marketing campaigns. Regularly sending the newsletters for your new content to the relevant audiences can be a huge booster!We dont have a newsletter yet, but this will come later on when we reach more people.
5. Monetize your blog
Blogging as a hobby is good, but blogging as a business is even better. Once you start getting traffic through Google and social media you can start thinking of monetizing your website. These are some of the most popular ways to monetize your blog:
- Affiliate marketing – Promote fashion brands you love and earn money when people buy the products you recommend! There are many affiliate progams out there and many shops to promote.
- Design your products – Are you a designer of products? Use an eCommerce plugin to sell your own designed products.
- Offer service: Maybe you aren’t a designer, but you have the people skills and sharp eye to become a fashion consultant.
- Sell banner spots – Once you’ve built an audience, you can use them to sell advertising placements on your site. We strongly recommend that you only sell locations to brands you love if you choose this route. Readers can be turned off quickly when you don’t care about something.
- Adsense – You can use Adsense of course to make money blogging. But If you have more than 50.000 sessions a month (in Google analytics) you can think of premium advertisers like Mediavine. They pay a lot more so thats better. Think of 10 or 20 dollar for every 1000 pageviews. This is much more than Google Adsense, which pays so less. I don’t have a good experience with Google Adsense.
- Final advice
Learning how to start a fashion blog in 20223 and how to make it successful is a long and difficult process. It can be a effective way to earn a secondary income, or someday even a full-time business if you love fashion and have something truly unique to offer.
Some tips from me: focus on popular content. Write about popular brands and products. Make reviews etc. Don’t only post your images. Focus also on content, this way you will get traffic and traffic is what you need.
Be positive and go for it!
