Recently we mentioned that starting a blog is a great way to get noticed in the fashion industry. If you are interested in fashion PR, blogging is a great way to get your feet wet and show the world (and your future employers) your passion for fashion PR.
There are plenty of ways getting your blog up and running. In a recent post on the website Independent Fashion Bloggers, they outline some ways to gain respect in the fashion blogging world.
First, you should approach starting your blog like you are starting a business. You need to know what you want to accomplish with your blog, what type of audience you desire and most importantly what your niche is. Next, you should have a plan. It is necessary for you to know what your goal for your blog is, how many posts you are going to write per week, how you will promote your posts and you should know what you are going to write about. It is important to not just make up posts on the fly. You should have a concrete idea of what you are going to write about each time you sit down to post. Obviously you should be creative and fun with your posts, but you should also have an idea laid out so your posts make sense and so they don’t run in circles. Additionally, your blog should be professional looking. If you want big wigs in the fashion and fashion PR industry to take you seriously, you do not want a blog that looks unprofessional, messy and immature. Your blog should have a eye catching, yet streamlined template. This will ensure everything on your blog is easy to read and your posts are not cluttered. Also, you should have a logo deign that is memorable. This logo should be located everywhere, from your blog, to your twitter, to your Instagram so anytime someone sees this logo, they automatically know who you are. Branding is super important in this industry, so take your blog to the next level and have a memorable design so everyone can remember your name!
There are so many more ways to create the perfect fashion blog, but these are a few steps to get you started. Remember that it is important to get yourself out there in the most respectable and fashion forward light, so if you want to make it in the fashion PR industry, get your blog started today!
Until next time
