HOW TO TURN YOUR FASHION BLOG INTO A SUCCESSFUL, PROFITABLE FASHION BUSINESS
The world of fashion blogging has become a thriving industry and remains ever-growing.
There are literally hundreds of fashion, makeup, and lifestyle bloggers currently active on social media - Some of which have been incredibly successful, but many are unable to boast huge subscriber numbers and struggle to make an impact, or indeed reach the right audience.
It's very easy to begin a simple fashion blog, but to turn it into a thriving fashion business? This is time consuming and the ride can be bumpy, with increasingly fierce competition daily.
If you are a new fashion entrepreneur wondering where you are going wrong and what is stopping you from becoming blogger or brand of the year, this post will help you move forward.
We explore below the key tips and tricks to quickly help you escalate your fashion blog into an enviable business.
CREATE INNOVATIVE CONTENT THAT STANDS OUT
Be it blogging or vlogging, the key to success is creating content that nobody else is creating. You need to always be a step ahead with your ideas. If you are offering what everyone is offering, you can't expect to be more popular than them. Do your homework and be the first one to come up with an idea or concept. Report on trends that will be coming in the future.
BLOG ABOUT WHAT'S NEW RATHER THAN WHAT'S NOW!
Relying on Google search results for your research, restricts you to ideas and topics that people are already seeing, writing and talking about.
One of the fastest ways to elevate your blog's presence and stand out from the crowd, is to explore our world of fashion forecasting reports which predict future trends and allow you to create blogs that are ahead of your competition. Reporting on the future will position you as a respected industry leader, rather than a follower and will gain you trust with a loyal following. Talking about "what's next", rather than "what's now" will also strengthen your position as an influencer.
Being different with your content will encourage readers to talk about you and your page and including insights or future trend predictions will set you apart from others, ranking you higher on Google results, and gaining you increased exposure.
BE STRATEGIC AND CONSISTENT
Whatever your blog topics cover, (dresses, knitwear, print etc), you need to be strategic and consistent. People will keep coming back if they know that you are innovative and provide consistent inspiration.
Provide your audience with insights into what's coming and offer advice on styling and accessorising for the next seasons. Plan your strategy ahead and have your research prepared for the following season with future fashion trend forecasts.
This allows you to prepare and schedule posts and articles in advance with the right subjects and content that will keep readers interested.
LASTLY, PARTNER WITH BUDDING BRANDS
It is after you have established a solid reader base, that you should consider reaching out to fashion brands for paid/unpaid partnerships. Seek out new, emerging brands that reinforce your aesthetic and also will appeal to your target audience part! Search marketing agencies that represent the brands you love and send them prospective emails for partnership proposals.
KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
Define your blog's target audience and be clear about your vision. If you intend to have a subscriber base of 1 million before the end of the year, you need to buckle down and put in the effort to achieve this.
It is admirable that so many new bloggers are emerging daily, putting time, effort, energy and passion into each post, but to be able to shine in your industry, you need to be a step ahead.
It's high time you outgrow traditional blogging and take your venture to the next level. Good luck!
