If you have started a fashion blog or are looking to do so soon, it is no doubt because you have a passion for fashion. However, it is unlikely that you want to do this just for the fun of it. Instead, you want to make a little money while having fun.
To do that, you need to monetize your posts. While this sounds daunting at first, it is actually pretty easy to do. In fact, there are three easy ways you can turn your blog from a hobby into a business. Below are our 3 ways to monetize fashion posts.
To do this, you need to be part of an affiliate program, but once you are, it is quite simple. All you need to do is link within your posts to a product within the affiliate network and when someone clicks or purchases, you make money. There are many affiliate networks strictly focused on fashion.
The obvious way to do this is to feature the products you link to in your posts. However, you could also try things such as featuring a celebrity outfit and linking to items that are similar but budget friendly, or even include multiple links by first featuring the items in your post, and then suggesting alternatives. This can be a great way to include both plus and standard sizes.
And you can change them as you add new posts so you are promoting the most relevant items. Images grab people, and if they work well with the outfits you are featuring in your posts, or are the items featured in your posts, you are more likely to see returns. Another option is to focus on accessories, that way it is easy for them to work with whatever post your reader might be on. Finally, you can simply sell the space to fashion companies, allowing them to decide the content.
This is probably the most enjoyable way to monetize your blog, but it is also the hardest. With this option, you find a company or designer that wants to pay you to create a post. Usually, they will also provide you with the items they want to feature free of charge, no need to return them. You just set the price for the post and write it. Be sure to let readers know when a post is sponsored so there is transparency.
