Pick A Unique Yet Memorable Name
Once you have identified your expertise, it’s time to choose a memorable URL for your website. Some blogs will infuse their URLs with relevant keywords. This is not a problem for fashion blogs. Keywords aren’t irrelevant, but fashion keywords change faster than other industries. You don’t want your blog name to look dated.
Instead, focus on creating a memorable name that is unique and fun. Choose 2-4 words that are simple to remember and easy to spell. Your name or a group of words that sound good together could be included. You might consider incorporating words like fashion or style into your name, but don’t force it. Cupcakes and Cashmere is a blog that focuses on food and fashion. It’s a great example of a unique and memorable blog name.

No matter if you use a WordPress template or create your own, it must look clean, stylish, modern, and professional. Fashionistas love to be able browse their favourite fashions on the move, so make sure your website is mobile-friendly.
Apart from the design of your blog’s graphic, you should also have a way to access images. You may need to contact local boutiques and designers, as well national and international brands, in order to obtain copyright-free images. Make sure that you have the permission to post any photos on your blog. You may choose to take your own photos if you are a photographer. Many fashion bloggers are the main models wearing the clothes they write about.
Create Your Marketing Strategy
It is important to develop a marketing strategy for your business. There are many ways to market your fashion blog. You will need to decide which methods you will use and which you will outsource. Although your main goal is to create compelling content for your fashion blog’s website, you should also consider sharing content on other websites to increase traffic to your site.
