Start making money from your fashion blog

Many fashion and style lovers dream of owing a successful fashion blog. If you are a natural writer or photographer (or you have a great photographer at your disposable). the dream of having a fashion blog is even stronger. Fashion and Style Police will be 7 years old in a few days and I can’t believe how far this tiny little blog has come. Having my own little corner on the big wide web has always been a dream, and I am glad to see it alive and doing amazing 7 years after I clicked publish on my very first blog post.

I know many people wonder how bloggers make money and I have written extensively about that on the blog here. However this blog post’s focus is on how you can start making money from your fashion blog. So the ideas and tips will be focused on fashion blogging but can also work for other blog niches.

Start making money from your fashion blog

So how do fashion bloggers make money from their fashion blogs? Here are some popular ways they do this –

 

Sell your own products

I know many fashion blogs with their own online store where they sell their items. Some of them are new fashion designers and sell their designs on their blogs. Others sell clothing and accessories from other brand on their blogs. I have played with the idea of doing this on and off for years but I have decided not to for many reasons. However I know many fashion bloggers doing this and making good money from it as a side gig on their blogs. It works if you have a good eye for clothing and accessories that would sell well. It also works if you design lovely items and you get to set your prices which is good.

 

Affiliate marketing

Many fashion bloggers make a decent wage from affiliate marketing. This works by promoting brands and getting a percentage off the sales from your blog. I do this and it works great especially if you readers are buyers. It also works great if you write SEO optimised posts that rank on search engines, that way more eyeballs get to read your blog posts. I make about 1% of my blog income from affiliate marketing so not much for me but every penny counts and I plan to incorporate more affiliate links.

 

Sponsored Posts

This is how I get 95% of my blog income. Sponsored posts is all about brands paying you to write about their products/services and linking back to their websites. Usually the brands/PRs/SEOs come to you once you have an established blog but you can also reach out to them via email and social media. I have a blog coaching service I offer that will help you grow your blog so brands find it attractive enough to spend money on. You can reach out to me via email to hear more about this service. My email address is on the right hand side of the blog.

Social media promotion

Many fashion bloggers also make money from their social media platforms alongside their blogs. Brands do pay them to promote their products and services on their social media platforms. This works if you have a good following and engagement on social media especially Instagram. I get 2% of my blog income from social media promotions.

 

Banner ads

This is another way of making avenue to make money on your blog. It works great for me as well. My banner ads are from WordAds (Wordpres) but there are loads of options available. I also put up banner ads for private clients and they usually pay a better figure. I get 2% of my blog income from banner ads.

 

I make money from other ways thanks to my blog but they are not tied to the blog directly so I have left them out.

Do you have a fashion blog? Any new creative ways you have made money on it this year?

Five Must-Have Tops for Your Life

*Collaborative post.

As a twin mum and also as a woman and a writer, I have a lot of different places and spaces in my life. There are times when I need to be dressed up and there are times when dressing up is the worst idea ever. My kids, like all kids, like to make messes and I like to be able to participate or at least not lose my mind when I inevitably get sucked into their dusty fun. 

But there are plenty of moments in my life when I need to look polished and put together. For my wardrobe, the tops that I choose have to be wardrobe workhorses

Here are my top five styles that are a staple in my closet.

 

1)      The Short-Sleeve Top
 Whether made of a casual material like cotton or a dressier fabric like silk, a short-sleeved top is the most versatile piece in my wardrobe. I can wear it by itself in warmer months and I can layer it under a cardigan during the fall and winter months. Nothing gets more use in my closet.

 

2)      The Button Down Top
This is another top that is a workhorse in my wardrobe. Theses tops can be made of a heavier weight material for warmth during the cooler months or it can be made with a lightweight fabric to use during the warmer months. This style is perfect for a casual weekend brunch or a work meeting. These tops look best fitted comfortably to the body. I like to get my button down tops tailored for just the right fit.

 

3)      The Twist Front Blouse
This top is a sweet mix of femininity and flair. It is versatile, fitted, and gives me the confidence I need to go from a work meeting into a date night. It can be dressed up easily with a pair of heels and is flattering on all body types. Choose it in a rich, bold color or pattern for a statement piece or choose it in a muted neutral for a laying piece to wear with any and all of your outfits.

 

4)      The Knit Top
The knit top is a piece I love to wear and layer in the colder months. It wear it under jackets, over other shirts, or simply by itself. It can be worn with a business suit, skirt, or a casual pair of jeans on the weekend. Its ease and predictability makes it a staple in my wardrobe and makes it a piece I’m never without in my closet.

 

5)      The Crop Top
Okay, hear me out. Today’s crop top is not the wild child shirt you wore when you were a teenager. Crop tops can be made out of delicate materials and fabrics and when I pair them with high-waist pants they are not too revealing for daytime. Give this style top a try in your wardrobe the next time you’re in a rut. It’s a fun exploration into something creative and trendy!

Those are my top five tops that I love as staples in my closet. What are your favourite tops?
