One way to make money with a
fashion blog is to sell advertising space. This obviously can be
challenging for a small business owner (fashion blogger). In all
honesty, it is difficult to spend time writing about fashion and at the
same time contacting potential clients for advertising. Even here
at Apparel Search, we have a method for apparel companies to
advertise on Apparel Search, but we
spend VERY little time actively seeking advertisers.
Rather then directly seek out
advertisers, you can utilize other companies that have advertiser
inventory and use a special code to place advertisements on your own
website. So far, the best program that I have found is the
program. If you look carefully, you will find some on this page...
We also use what is called
in text advertising. At this time we do not use this method on
all of our pages, but we do use the method on some. For fashion
blogs, it is a pretty good method for placing ads. There are a few
services that provide in text advertising, but Apparel Search selected
Another way to make money
fashion blog is to use affiliate programs. Truth is that I do
not use affiliate programs to their full capacity. I have been

it potentially ruins the links previously created. This results in
dead links on the website if they are not properly maintained.
Again, I have not properly worked with this type of program. I am
certain they can be successful if used properly (maintained, tracked,
updated, etc.). You can read more about
programs if you are interested in doing so.
Recently, I found another
interesting method for fashion blogs to earn revenue. At this
point I am not certain how beneficial the program is, but I think it
should work well. Even if it does not earn much revenue, it
appears that the service will actually benefit web site viewers.
If it benefits viewers, I will consider it a success...
new method is to provide "local business listings" on your blog. By
simply adding a search engine, viewers can find local clothing suppliers,
fashion boutiques, etc.
For example, if your blog post is regarding a shoe designer in Los
Angeles, the reader can use the engine to search shoe stores in Los
Angeles or other relevant topics. Add
Local Fashion to your
