Fashion Blogging Jobs | How to make Money on Fashion Blog for Free
01). Monetize via Advertisement Networks:
Ad networks, like Google AdSense, are one of the easiest methods to make money from a fashion blog. You’ve probably noticed other websites with advertisements on them from Google or Infolinks. Each time someone clicks on those ads, the website owner is paid. In fact, if you have good influence then some ads will pay you for simply showing them on your site whether they get clicked or not you will get paid.
To get started with these networks, simply paste the code they give you into your website. That’s it. Rest if you want to spend some time finding the perfect place to put the ads then it will be more great.
02). Make Money via Affiliate Links:
Sites like INRDeals use affiliate links on blogs to link directly to products that the blogger is wearing or buying in photos and posts. In turn, bloggers will then get paid based on either clicks or a percentage of total sales made from their posts.
03). Publish Sponsored Content:
This is paid for by the brand through blog posts, Instagram, YouTube videos, Pinterest collaborations—whatever medium they choose and usually is a combination of all these outlets together. Lately it has become more transparent in blog posts by using the hashtags #ad #sponsored or “in collaboration with” to indicate that the content is sponsored by a brand.
Some of the popular websites through which you can apply for sponsored post in a fashion blog are,
Choies welcomes fashion bloggers to promote their products. You can get paid and avail special discounts for promoting their products.

04). Tie-up with Brands for Collaborations:
Once you’ve built your brand, you can endorse other brands. As you know, fashion is an industry crowded with tons of brands and these brands are looking to promote their brands through various methods. This is why they are looking to collaborate with fashion bloggers (In other words, fashion influencers).
You can promote products of these brands making a deal with them. Well, the deal can vary as per the collaboration, it can be for a time period, it can be for number of blogposts. It’s all up to the blogger and brand.
05). Via Boosting Marketing Campaigns:
These are different than the sponsored content, instead of giving a blogger something to create on their personal site, it’s done by a company’s marketing team and lives on the company’s site, is promoted by them but also shared on a blogger’s platform.
06). Create your own E-book and Sell it:
Having a Digital Product to sell can be one of the most profitable online businesses in 2018. The biggest advantage of having a digital product is that it is onetime investment business and once it reaches a break, all the sales will generate 100 percent profit to the creator.
Ebook is one such digital product through which you can generate tremendous amount of profit. Once you build some traffic to your fashion blog, you can write some e-book about fashion tips, fashion photography or something, or even about starting a fashion blog and sharing your journey. Primarily, analyze what your reader want to hear from you and write an ebook in that niche.
Once you’ve written an ebook, set a descent price (I’d say something in the range of $10-$15) and promote this ebook on behalf of your readers. If you can achieve a conversion rate of 3-5 %, and traffic of 500 unique visits a day, you can easily touch $6000-$7000 a month in revenue, not at all bad! right?
You can also sell your ebook through Amazon ebook store and kindle store.
07). Start Your eCommerce Fashion Store:
Once you have a set of readers, you can convert this readers into potential customers. Theblondsalad is one perfect example of converting a fashion blog into fashion eCommerce store.
08). Be a Fashion Model:
Being a model is the dream of every fashion enthusiasts. You are building a brand through your fashion blog, if you check this fashion blog of Julia Engel, you can see that she is building a brand of herself.
A fashion blogger often upload photos in the latest fashion wears. Or in other words, he/she is the model of their fashion blog. Once you build a readership, you can offer modeling as a service and you can get hired as model and make money.
A good real life example would be Aimee Song, from songofstyle.com. She do have more than 4 million followers in her instagram account, which means she is a style sensation and is model who has lots of followers. This massive amount of followers can bring in more brand to her modeling and thereby more money.
