HOW TO START A FASHION BLOG ON INSTAGRAM – BEGINNERS GUIDE
Here are the 7 steps that’ll help you to make it big on Instagram!
OBSERVE WHAT’S NEW, WHAT’S HOT AND WHAT’S NOT!
You gotta observe before you start! Observe the latest and upcoming fashion trends. Don’t be confined to a particular platform, observe the trends around you, read magazines and newspapers, browse the internet and most importantly, go through the profiles of already established fashion bloggers. Once you’re done with it, list down everything that looks appealing to you and can help you in future.
SHOW OFF YOUR WARDROBE!
Starting a fashion blog doesn’t mean that you need to throw your old clothes and get the new ones! This is the biggest challenge you’ll be facing while starting a blog. You’ve got to show your fashion skills. Mix and match can be a great option at this stage because making large investments here won’t be a clever option. You can definitely buy what’s trending, the next time you go shopping. Till then, bring the best out of your closet and let the world see it!
QUALITY MATTERS, DARLING AND SO DO PIXELS!
Whether it be your clothes or the picture you post, you have to maintain the quality. Never post a picture that doesn’t catch your eye at the very first glance! If the picture does not look appealing enough to you, then how would it be able to attract followers!
Everything, from makeup to clothes and from location to photography will help you to establish your personality and goodwill among the public.
HASHTAGS ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS!
Use hashtags that are trending, common and appropriate. Go through the profiles of some already established fashion bloggers and note down the tags that they use! Better the hashtags, the more famous your blog will be! Moreover, don’t forget to tag the brands that you’re wearing and use suitable captions that define you and your style.
PROMOTE YOUR FASHION BLOG AND KEEP IT UPDATED!
Post pictures frequently with proper hashtags and keep your account updated otherwise followers might lose interest in your blog. Ask your friends to promote your blog on every possible platform and a photographer friend would be a cherry on the cake! You don’t have to hire a photographer and so you can cut down on the costs. Obviously, you can pay him once you start earning. The more they promote, the more followers you earn!
BE PATIENT! DON’T WAIT FOR A MIRACLE TO HAPPEN OVERNIGHT.
You have to be very, very patient! One can’t get followers overnight and if you’re thinking that you’ll start earning as soon as you start the blog, then you are absolutely wrong. You have to wait until people start observing you as you observed the “famous bloggers” when you started your blog! Once you get a decent amount of followers, you can definitely start earning but even then you have to maintain the quality of your blog.
Remember, there are times when you don’t get paid but if the offer is good for your blog, then go for it!
THERE YOU GO FASHIONISTA!
Once your blog is famous, you’ll have to keep it updated and maintain the quality. Last but not the least, never underestimate your competitors i.e. the other fashion bloggers. There you go girl, follow the latest trends and you’re all set to make it to the list of “famous fashion bloggers”!
