The great thing about fashion is that it always looks forward. Oscar de la Renta
Being trendy is a way to show who you are without saying a word. Whether one confesses it or not, but everyone wants to look good when they stand in front of the mirror. Fashion projects our identity to the outer world.
The Fashion industry has the huge market share which is growing beyond limitations day by day. This is indeed an excellent opportunity for fashion bloggers or those who deal with various affiliate marketing programs. Even the top clothing brands know that the worthiest people to endorse their products are the clients themselves.
Impact of fashion bloggers on fashion industry
Fashion bloggers come on the top priority list of these fashion brands as they contribute a significant amount to this industry. In return, they get huge commissions per sale. Affiliate marketing is the best way to monetize on the fashion related traffic.
All the top fashion brands do not have direct affiliate programs for promotional campaigns. These brands tie up with various affiliate networks who provide these brand’s links, banners, cookies, texts and other offers to the interested people (mainly fashion bloggers or affiliate marketers). These individuals approach the top brands through these service providing network partners. When their requests are accepted, they join the affiliate programs of the top fashion and beauty brands and start endorsing their products on various channels.
Types of income earned through affiliate programs
The income earned by these fashion bloggers is divided into two parts namely commissions and pay per click. The promotional campaign might involve writing review about a particular brand, posting photos along with affiliate links on social media, making flaunting YouTube videos, etc. If your audiences, click on the link mentioned on your photos or the blogs, you get a small percentage of the amount. If they buy, you get a fixed commission that can go up to 20 to 40% depending on the sale made.
One more thing which comes in between the brand endorser and the brand’s network partner is their strict terms and conditions set by the team of affiliate department. So, do not assume that your request will always be accepted to get associated with the brand.
