If you’re eager to get into the world of fashion, there’s a good chance that you may need a little extra motivation and inspiration.
This is why it’s important to look at some of the successful fashion blogs out there, because you can use them as a baseline or goal to follow and conquer.
So, whether you’re starting out or looking for some motivation to reach the next step, you’re definitely in the right place.
Blogging isn’t easy, and while it may seem fairly easy to sit there and type words, there is a lot more that actually goes into it.
Also, for your convenience, everything will be broken down into easy-to-read sections in case you feel the need to skip around.
Now that you know what I’ll be going over, let’s get right into the top 5 list.
Alexa Chung began her fashion blogging career only a few years ago. In that time frame she was able to amass a very large following of over 3 million people, and for each post she writes, she expects to make between $4,000 and $5,000. For a fashion blog, well, those are some impressive numbers. Her blog is based in the UK, and adheres to more English high fashion.
How does she make that much money?
That’s a lot of money per post, and definitely enough money to live a comfortable lifestyle. Chung is able to make this money through a combination of clever tactics. Chung is able to leverage social media to drive traffic to her blog, and this blog acts as an affiliate program.
Plus, Chung was very smart with the way she set everything up. Instead of limiting her exposure to just WordPress, Chung’s blogs run across multiple platforms. Her other sources of income include:
- Fashion sponsors
- Affiliate programs
- Being a fashion influencer on social media
$4,000 is a lot of money for a blog post, which means that Chung definitely knows what she’s doing. Also, you need to consider that this is just off of one blog post. Chung is making several streams of income, so she most definitely has a lot more money coming in.
Leonie Hanne is another fashion blogger that makes a ridiculous amount of money per blog post. Leonie Hanne is a German based blogger, and she represents an appeal to German fashion. She has amassed nearly 2 million followers, and expects to make about $5,000 for every blog post she writes.
How does Leonie Hanne make her money?
Leonie Hanne is ambitious to say the least. This is due to the fact that she has started her own company (fashion line) called Ohh Couture. This alone makes her a pretty penny, and she can use her blog to direct people to her online store and landing pages. As for her other sources of income, well, it’s assumed that a lot of it comes from media advertising.
Leonie Hanne is a blogger with real entrepreneurial spirit. Not only did she launch a successful blog with millions of followers, but she was able to bring her own fashion vision to life.
Aimee Song makes a very large sum of money for each blog post that she creates. A lot of this is based on the fact that she actively participates in two niches where she is an authority figure. So, while Aimee Song may be all about fashion, she does have a very successful interior design blog as well. With these tools at her disposal, she expects to make roughly $7,000 per blog post.
How does Aimee Song get paid?
Her annual income is not disclosed to the public, but I have a pretty good guess as to how much she is pulling in. Trust me, it’s way more than just $7,000 every time she makes a blog post. Aimee Song’s revenue likely comes through streams of affiliates, or interior design blog, and advertising.
Aimee Song is proof that you can be an expert in more than one niche. With nearly 5 million followers, her reach is almost endless.
The last blogger I want to bring up is Amra Olevic. Amra Olevic expects to make nearly $10,000 per blog post, and this money comes in some very interesting ways. So, aside her massive following of over 5 million people, let’s take a look at what makes her special.
How does Amra Olevic make money
Amra Olevic was born and raised within the United States, so her fashion appeal reaches the number one economy in the world. This was a great breeding ground for a young fashion blogger, and once she had the followers she needed, she was able to create her own successful brand called Glamrezy.
Olevic’s story is not very different from others that I’ve spoken about so far, so hopefully you’re noticing the pattern.
I know that comparing yourself to these blogs may seem like a stretch right now, but you need to have inspiration and motivation. You need to have that goal in mind, this way you know what you’re striving for. I’m saying that you need to become as profitable as these fashion blogs overnight, but knowing what the end result is can be a powerful tool.
So, now that you know what’s possible in the world of fashion blogging, I hope that you’re ready to take that next step.
