Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! I spent some time shopping out in Allen, TX at the outlets there. Does anyone else love outlet shopping? It’s where I find all the bargains! I picked up some super cute over the knee boots 75% off at Aldo so I can’t wait to wear those this fall!
So as a style blogger the measurement of my success seems to be my acceptance into Reward Style. You know, that little “shop my look by signing up for LiketoKnow.it” message in most Instagrammer’s posts? Yeah, that’s the thing I’ve been dying to be able to include in my posts but I haven’t been accepted yet! So here’s what I’ve gleaned from other blogger’s success stories about getting into Reward Style.
Style Bloggers Need Outfit Posts
For a long time, I posted a little bit of everything on my Instagram. One day might be a styled photo of my coffee and the next day might be a shot of my outfit. Reward Style focuses on style. Think “Outfit of the Day” posts! So I’ve been trying to adjust my Instagram feed to be just style.
Quality Photos Matter
I don’t know how in depth they go into an Instagrammer’s blog, but I think it’s important that the photography for your fashion posts be up to par with what Reward Style expects. Hiring a photographer is something I’m ponying up the money for and it’s totally worth it. Photos for my outfit above were taken by Luisa (link to her blog here!) She’s amazing and very affordable if you live here in Dallas!
Engagement is Important
You can have great posts but if no one is engaging with them (i.e. commenting) then your social influence isn’t very high. Reward Style will likely notice this and assume that no one is interested in what you have to share, therefore no one will purchase any of your promoted items. I’m still learning how to solve this problem on my own Instagram.
If you’ve gotten into Reward Style, please leave me a comment with any tips or secrets! If you work for Reward Style, then please accept my application! Being accepted into Reward Style has been a goal of mine for the last year and I’m hoping to make that happen soon!
