How brands can work with fashion bloggers

*Collaborative post.

Fashion and Style Police was initially set up as purely a fashion blog in 2012. I was so into fashion back in the day (I still am but into other things as well now) and I wanted a creative outlet to explore all the crazy fashion and style ideas I had. That quest led to the creation of this blog. If you scroll through my fashion posts category, you will find all sorts of content on fashion and style. Over the years, I have learned how to create my own space on the web and how to stand out as a fashion blogger.

How brands can work with fashion bloggers

In other to succeed as a fashion blogger and start to earn an income from your blog, you need to attract brands who will be interested in working with you on your blog and social media platforms.

As a fashion blogger, there are so many ways to work with brands but I will be talking about the most popular ways to collaborate with brands and earn some money whilst doing so.

Sponsored posts

Sponsored posts are one of the most popular and lucrative ways of earning money from your blog. Once you grow your blog and start getting steady traffic, you will start to attract brands who are willing to work with you on sponsored posts. Sponsored posts usually work with the brand and you collaborating on a blog post. This involves agreeing on the theme of the post, images, links, and anchor texts. An agreement on a fee and terms of payment is usually done prior to the post being written.

Sponsored posts work great for fashion bloggers UK and brands as they are a great way of promoting a brand and earning income for the blogger as well.

Product reviews

This is similar to sponsored posts but the only difference is that products are sent to the bloggers to be photographed and reviewed on the blog. Sometimes the bloggers receive payments and sometimes they don’t. I have published product reviews on this blog for years. Some are sponsored by brands and some are not. The truth is I enjoy trying new products and sharing my thoughts with you all. I really like photographing new pieces and accessories and showcasing them on the blog and on social media platforms. Having a fashion blog enables me to connect with various fashion brands and explore their amazing collections. It is a win-win.

Product review collaborations are a great way to work with brands. It is great especially for new UK fashion bloggers who are trying to stand out from the saturated blogging industry and create exciting content for their blog.

Affiliate marketing

This is another way to make money as a fashion blogger or any kind of blogger. For every affiliate link a reader clicks and makes a purchase, you get a commission.  I started affiliate marketing some years ago and it has been a steady way of working with different brands and earning some money by the side while providing engaging content for my blog visitors.

How to get the best out of your collaborations with bloggers with Get Blogged Marketplace

It is wise to agree on the terms of the collaboration before starting. Payment terms should be agreed upon prior to the collaboration. As a blogger, I always appreciate it when brands send me all the details I need in as few emails as possible. The back and forth can be draining and time-consuming. This is why it is easier for all parties involved to understand exactly what the collaboration would entail as quickly as possible.

This is one of the reasons why I love working with Get Blogged Marketplace. Posting a job on Get Blogged Marketplace is a quick, easy, and profitable way to work with many UK Fashion bloggers. As a brand, you can gain the best search engine optimisation results without spending a fortune or spending hours trying to find the right fashion bloggers for your campaign.

What will become of fashion blogs

CoronaVirus has completely changed the world. The fashion industry is one of the main industries affected by COVID-19 pandemic. For now, gone are the days of fashion shows, and even shopping on the high street isn’t for everyone with the new rules and regulations. Plus, with the current state of the economy, going on a shopping spree is probably the last thing on many people’s minds. Shopping is now down to necessity rather than a luxury. Which makes me wonder what will become of fashion blogs in these uncertain times.

The high street is disappearing.

Many high street giants are closing shops in many locations all over the world. Our local Dorothy Perkins recently announced they were closing down the store for good after 30 years of being in town. Debenhams, M&S, and many more have announced job cuts and store closures all over the UK. The current state of events makes me wonder what will become of fashion blogs. If stores are closing down and people are losing jobs, will showcasing new pieces/accessories make sense? What will happen to blogs and websites that only feature personal style posts?

The pandemic is definitely going to affect every content creator. Let’s face it; life has changed and adjustments have to be made. The UK is officially now in a recession. Many people are now more interested in content that would help them, rather than simply entertain them.

Blog how you want!

At the end of the day, our blogs and social media platforms are our little corners on the internet. There is the freedom to create whatever and whenever you want as long as it is legal. I won’t share certain content on here because of what is going on in the world. My approach to blogging has changed over the years, and me having a lifestyle blog allows me to write about whatever I want to write about. I am thankful to have that creative freedom. If Fashion and Style Police stayed as a pure fashion blog like how it started, I would have been in a very bad situation now. I know some bloggers have had to sell their blogs which is sad. Luckily, I decided to go down the lifestyle blogging route within a few months of blogging.

What will become of fashion blogs?

I really don’t know. I stopped reading pure fashion blogs when I stopped blogging just fashion. Instagram seems to be the place for showcasing fashion and style, and I see more than enough on there. I wonder what will become of fashion blogs.

 

 

What my autumn wardrobe would look like

Autumn is around the corner and I can’t wait to embrace it. I love the beautiful autumn leaves and cooler weather. It has been painfully warm here in Cheshire in the last few days. The crazy warm weather is making me want the autumn season even more. So what will my autumn wardrobe look like? I work from home as normal and with the current situation we are all in, I am not socialising much. That means my autumn wardrobe will look pretty much like my spring and summer wardrobe but a bit thicker.

Here are 5 items I am looking forward to wearing this autumn season –

Turbans/Scarves

I love turbans and scarves. They keep my head warm and they are great for when I don’t have the time to style my hair properly. I also love wearing turbans/scarves because the extra warmth keeps my scalp moisturised which helps the hair grow. I have found some amazing turbans online and I will be grabbing some of them in the next few weeks. Do you love wearing turbans/scarves?

Trainers

Trainers are great for the school run, which will be starting in the next few weeks. I can’t believe I am saying this but I have actually missed the school runs and the kiddies have missed school so much. I am looking forward to that starting again.

I love wearing my trainers. They are stylish and comfy. I will be getting a lot of wear out of my trainers this autumn season.

Sunglasses

I love that I can still wear my sunglasses on sunny autumn days. That is one fashion accessory that is more of a necessity than an accessory for me.

Light Jackets

One of the beauties of autumn fashion is that I can still wear light jackets. I cherish the last few months where I can get away with wearing a light jacket outdoors. I have a couple of light jackets I am already looking forward to wearing this autumn.

Leggings

I am a huge fan of leggings. They are super stylish and they look great with almost anything. Whenever I can’t think of what to wear, I throw on a pair of leggings and everything else just fits into place. In the last few days, it has been way too warm to throw on a pair of leggings. I am looking forward to the cooler months to make up for the lost time.

What is your autumn wardrobe going to look like this year? Please share your fashion tips in the comments section. Thanks for reading, commenting, and share. Have a great weekend.
