Hello and Welcome!
In this post I’m going to share with you how to sell clothes online, without having to touch a sewing machine, that’s right, you don’t need to even make the clothes! How amazing is that?
From an early age I’ve loved making clothes, playing about with fabric and sewing. Although my love for this was strong, the realization of making clothes to sell online seemed so daunting! I don’t work fast on a sewing machine so even a small amount of orders would stack up in no time if I were to pursue this ambition!
I love clothes, the way you can express yourself, the colours, the textures, the beauty, and I love sharing with other’s my beautiful finds!
So what if I told you that I’ve found a way where I can promote other people’s beautiful creations and make money from it at the same time!
Would you like to do the same? You can do it too…
Let’s do this…
So first things first, you are going to need to decide on what type of clothes you want to sell.
What’s your style? Boho, Trendy, Sporty, Casual….
Or would you love to sell children’s clothing? Fairtrade clothing?
Even a specific brand of clothing?
The great thing about this is that it’s up to you!
Choose something that you’re not going to get bored with… or you could even choose fashion trends.
The choice is yours…
Next Step – Build a Website
Right, so you’ve decided on the type/brand/fashion of clothing you want to sell, now’s the time to build a website.
It’s as easy as that, don’t panic, if I can do it so can you!
Think up a domain name that is specific to you, or the type of clothing you want to sell, for example: fashionwithjenni.com, ecofriendlyclothing.com, colourfulkidsclothing.com…. then…
You can purchase a website domain from one of the hundreds of different domain hosting sites available (usually for around $1.99 to13.00 a year). For example godaddy.com, 1and1.com, or names.co.uk. You can build it using one of their templates (sometimes at a small cost and sometimes for free, depends on the site).
Or you could do what I did and sign up with Wealthy Affiliate (Check out my review here). With Wealthy Affiliate I was able to build my website(s) using WordPress and SiteRubix, following their step by step tutorials and training. With the FREE account you can build 2 websites and with the Premium account you can build up to 50 websites. On this amazing training platform you learn all you need to know about Affiliate Marketing.
Wow, wait a minute – what’s affiliate marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is a marketing agreement where an online retailer agrees to pay a commission to an external website (you) for traffic and/or sales generated from referrals.
WordPress and SiteRubix – the best of the best in my opinion
Being a complete novice when it comes to website building I found these platforms so easy to navigate.
With WordPress you have 1000s of beautiful templates to choose from, each can be tailored to your needs and preferences. It’s so simple and easy, you just choose your template, and start to create!
SiteRubix takes website building to another level allowing you to create your own business online with ease using:
SiteRubix allows you to build with safety, keeping you protected (from hacking, spam, malware, etc) and keeps your site optimized and functioning at the same time. All of these are available with your premium account at Wealthy Affiliate.
Right? So how do I sell clothes? – You might be asking….
Once you’ve decided on the type of clothes you are going to sell, your domain name, and started your template, you are going to want to start adding content to your site.
You want to be creating content in a way in which it creates traffic but still being true to your followers.
I learned how to create amazing content with Wealthy Affiliate‘s Online Entrepreneur Course. Their step by step instructions really helped break down how to do this, and by this I mean become an Online Entrepreneur!
Your content will then need to be linked to an affiliate program. Almost every company that you think of will have an affiliate program, there are 100,000s to choose from.
The easiest one to start with is Amazon, they give up to 75% commission on sales!
The Online Entrepreneur Course – What does it cover?
You might be asking, so what’s this online entrepreneur course all about?
The answer is that it is an amazing training program, breaking all the information you need to know down into easy to understandable chunks. I found the whole concept of affiliate marketing a little overwhelming to say the least in the beginning, but now that I am working though these steps, I’m finding it more and more exciting every day.
The 5 main Levels within the certification are:
- Getting Started
- Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website
- Making Money
- Mastering Social Engagement
- Acheiving Maximum Success Through Content Creation.
Within these are up to 40 tasks per level, you can do one a day, or work through a few a day, it’s all at your own pace.
So what’s this about Amazon?
Like I said, Amazon is a great company to get started with, for a start it’s huge, and there are so many products to choose from.
When you begin to create content in the form of blog pages and review pages you will be able to promote items of clothing, brands, etc.
These will then be linked to the products related to this through Amazon (and eventually any company you would like to promote).
All sales purchase through your link in your website, you will earn commission on!
Awesome, don’t you think?
I hope you’ve found this helpful, any questions please ask away!
Love and Light,
