How To Start A Successful Fashion Blog

The first girl I introduced to the world of blogging was interested in the fashion niche. She was working for me as an intern writer on one of my blogs. When she asked me "which is the best niche to start a blog?" My answer was the same one I tell all newbies, "Follow your passion." For her, she loved clothes, jewellery, shoes and everything about looking good. She fitted well in Fashion Niche. Today she writes a successful fashion blog targeting female readers and she makes money with Google adsense.

Why A Fashion Blog Will Be Successful

Fashion niche is big. Millions of men and women spends hundreds of dollars on magazines just to read articles telling them how to look good. There are the big players in this niche, Vogue for women and GQ for men. Apart from this big magazines with online presence there are also independent bloggers, The Style Rookie, The Sartorialist and Style Bubble. Even in this crowded field, a writer with passion and tenacity will find her corner.

Don't let the success of these fashion bloggers put you down, instead let it inspire you. Remember long time ago were like you asking, "how to start a fashion blog?"

How To Make Money With Your Fashion Blog

The easiest way to make money blogging on fashion is enrolling in Google Adsense program. According to google the average CPC for fashion is $0.65. You can also sell ads directly to online boutiques. The monthly ad rate you set will depend on how much you value your work. Never under value your work and never out price yourself.

Attracting traffic To Your Fashion Blog

The secret to starting a successful fashion blog or fashion website with lots of traffic is hardwork, write often, preferably every day. There is a strong link between the number of post and traffic. The more the post the higher the traffic.

Strategy of Getting Back Links to your fashion blog

Join Fashion forums and be active there, e.g fashion trends and fashion spot . Once in a while live your blog or website link on your forum post. The link will bring you traffic and most importantly give you a back link that increases google authority. The more links that point to your blog/website the higher your blog will rank in Google searches.

Write a list of top 50 fashion blogs and visit each one of them and leave a comment. The blogger may reciprocate the visit and check out your site and if he/her likes what he sees, he might link back to your site. It is a simple way of networking in your niche.
