Influencers and bloggers are taking the world, and they definitely have changed the way the fashion and beauty industries work. We see them everywhere and they seem to have really cool lives. And let’s be honest, sometimes we even wish we could be them.
But after all, we wonder: how do they get to live like this? How can you make money as a fashion and beauty blogger?
Well, there are three main ways for fashion and beauty bloggers to make money with everyday. In this post, we’re going to show you how to put them all into action. And the best part: we’ll be sharing with you a list with the highest paying affiliate programs for fashion and beauty bloggers to join.
You can’t miss this!
But first, let me ask you one question: do you think you need hundreds of followers to make money online?
Clue: no, you don’t.
Actually, you can make money as a new blogger or influencer with less than 1000 followers and no experience, but with a little perseverance and hard work.
To make it understandable for you, I will first put it simple:
Let’s discuss everything more closely.
Affiliate marketing basically consists in promoting products and services from other brands you are associated with. In this case, this will be products related to the business and fashion industries like clothing and accessories or any product and service related to makeup, skin, hair, etc.
To make money using this strategy, you have to sign up for the affiliate program you are interested in, and they will provide you with product links to share with your audience. When someone reading your blog or Instagram profile makes a purchase through that link, you earn a commission of the price they paid.
This basically means you get paid for recommending a product, but don’t overuse it, only recommend those products and services you truly love in order to keep your audience’s trust.
The best thing about affiliate marketing? Everyone can do it! You don’t need hundreds of followers to use affiliate links on your blog, in fact, it’s better to have a small audience that believes what you say. Because what are a million followers without engagement? Nothing.
Joining an affiliate network will make things way more easy for you, since you can access to a ton of programs in one place and find all the information about them: how much they pay, get your affiliate links, get paid, etc. These are the best affiliate networks and some of the brands they work with:
Sponsored posts are also a great way to make money in this industry, and they require a collaboration with another brand or shop.
This is how a sponsored post will work normally: you reach out to a company that you’re interested with, or they pitch you an idea to start a collaboration. This collaboration usually consists in promoting their products and services on your blog or other social channels.
When talking about sponsored posts there are sooo many options: you can promote a fashion clothing line, you can review a beauty treatment or you can feature a new shop on your social media. The possibilities are endless!
This may be the less known way to make money online, but it definitely works if you have an engaged audience that trusts you. If you have created something you know your followers could be interested in purchasing, don’t hesitate and include as a part of your income!
There is no limit established by another company, so you can really be yourself here and try something different. You can sell a physical product (maybe clothes designed by you, or simply your old ones), or a digital product (a skin care guide or an ebook about your journey as a blogger are just some of the possibilities).
The good thing about selling your own stuff is they are so fun to make and you can really get creative, since you’ve got all the power!
As you can see, literally everyone can make money blogging. It obviously takes time and patience, but in the end it’s really worth it to build a community and share your interests and favorite things with them. Now, we encourage you to try some of this strategies and tell us what works best for you! As always, we’ll love to hear your stories.
