So, how to get free clothes if you are a small blogger you’re asking? (I am not referring to the height you all) In the beginning, it seems like a fairy tale. Impossible to happen and exclusive to dream about. But eventually as you grow with your blog, you are gonna have those free clothes moments. I am explaining you how below.
QUALITY OF YOUR PHOTOS. Nobody wants to see low high res pictures, in fact if you think about it you are the first person to know it. Do you stumble upon those bloggers that have those LQ photos and you find yourself closing the page quicker than a camera flash? Then, quality has to happen and as soon as you realize it, the better. If you don’t have an idea or you want to get inspirations on which photos are the cool ones, go on Instagram and browse famous bloggers feeds. You know now what I am talking about?
CONTENT. You think that content doesn’t matter when it comes to get free clothes? Well, it still matters as it’s the thing that will get your blog going and growing stronger! The more you write something useful for your readers, the more they will get back to your blog and improve your daily traffic. After all, you are not doing the blog just for yourself, right? (even if it’s a pretty good idea to start off as if you were writing your diary) It will get less awkward as the days go by. Trust me. (see my post How to create great blog content here)
READERSHIP. Everything counts when it comes to get more recognition as a blogger. Brands are particular drawn to bloggers that have a loyal readership, with constant messages and comments. They need bloggers with lots of readers in order to promote their brand. (makes sense) So, you need to start today and start leaving lots of comments on other’s Instagram feeds and blogs, they need to know you exist!
EMAIL BRANDS. Don’t be afraid as I have learnt that brands don’t bite. (yeah sometimes they do bark though) So, prepare your cover letter in which you present yourself as the fashion blogger and your blog (plus all your social media links too), don’t forget to include compliments to the brand itself and a “looking forward to your reply” sentence as well. Brands like some kindness and anyway kindness is free.
LIST YOUR COLLABORATIONS. If a brand is visiting your blog for the first time, they want to know who you are and most important they want to know who you collaborated with. Write down a list of your past collaborations (anything is legit) and don’t forget to do all the steps listed above to get to this one eventually!
