Jeans are one of the most enduring and practical items of clothing that you can own, which is why it’s no wonder everyone has at least one pair. There are different shapes, designs, and colours, and each one is a fashion statement of their own, but how do you showcase your passion for these jeans, and indeed for fashion in general? How do you turn yourself into an influencer, become a trusted fashion guru, and you put yourself out there? Follow these top tips:
- Start an Instagram Account
Instagram is where people go to share images. It has over 200 million monthly users. Those users share an astonishing 60 million images every single day. There are so many users and so many chances to connect, that it is almost impossible not to find an audience through the app. It is also very image-friendly, which is one of the biggest draws about fashion blogging. So, brush up your photography skills, get either a selfie-stick or a tripod for your phone (or a friend!) and start creating some striking images!
- Start a YouTube Account
The other social media option which is great for fashionistas is YouTube. You can give out beauty tips, styling tips, show your shopping haul, and so much more. You can tell a story through the video format, but you need to remember that both Instagram and YouTube are all about consistency. You need to post regularly in order to be successful, and those photos and videos further need to be something worthwhile to your audience. Start by having a professional intro. If you don’t know how to make a YouTube intro, there are many free resources and tools available online.
- Start a Fashion Blog
Not everything about fashion can be told through visuals. Further, engaging written content is still the best technique for SEO, which will increase your position in Google’s search results. Take an environmental stance and write about sustainable fashion, or talk about body positivity and how to dress for your shape. Write about fashion news, about your thoughts, and more. It will all help you provide more information and value to your readers.
- Connect with Brands
Once you have an audience, you can start reaching out to brands. Start off by tagging clothes by retailers in your posts. You will also have to ensure that you have high engagement, and are otherwise a perfect fit for brands to hire you to be their influencer. Do this, and you’ll be able to cash in on your efforts.
You can turn your love of jeans and your passion for fashion into something that can make you money. At the very least, you can connect with the brands you love, and even get a few freebies out of it. All you need to do is be genuine, be yourself, and keep at it. Consistency is the key, so do it because you love it first and foremost.
