Now for something a little different. You may have noticed, I love fashion. I’m sure you do too because that’s probably how you found my blog. But have you have thought about turning your passion for style into a profitable venture. There are ways that fashion can transform from a hobby or pastime into something so much more. Here are some of the best ways that you can make money from your interest in style.
Become A Designer
I remember watching One Tree Hill when I was younger. One of the main characters became a fashion designer, seemingly overnight. At that moment I thought, why can’t I do that? The fact is there is nothing stopping me or you from beginning our own brand. If you have the style and some creativity, you can create your clothing. Then, you have to market it and the best way to do that is to get people to wear it and advertise your designs for you. After that you can consider attending a trade show to market your concepts to investors. You hear about a new celeb starting a clothing line every other day, so why can’t you? It might take a while to find your feet in the fashion world, but nothing in life ever comes easy. You’ve just got to go for it.
If you love fashion and clothing as much as I do, you’re probably already writing about it on a blog. But, are you just doing that for you or have you made it a profitable business? If you spend a lot of your paycheck on buying clothes, you should use your blog to review the outfits and tell your readers when you wear them. It’s a great way to drum up some extra publicity and make your blog unique from the rest that are just talking about the latest celeb fashion. You should also use things like Pinterest to get the images shared on social media. By making sure your photos are shared your site search ranking rises, and that will increase your presence online. You may then attract the interest of advertisers. They might pay you to market their clothes on your site or at the very least, advertise there.
Of course, you don’t have to design your own clothes and accessories to sell. You can instead sell someone else’s. You’re still working with fashion and making a decent profit. This is usually achieved by selling wholesale products online. You can buy whole sale hand bags in bulk, then sell them on a website that you have set up. If you’re struggling to set up a site, you can use a template like Shopify. This makes things very easy for you but remember, you also need to set up a safe secure, purchasing method. It’s important that your website appears professional as well. Otherwise, customers won’t trust it.
Step By Step
Then again, if you want the best plan of action, you should move from one concept to the next. Start by blogging, making a name for yourself with followers. Then, link your blog to a clothing store where you sell unique products. Finally, market your designs to investors and begin your life as a successful seller and designer.
