Welcome, I’m Simon. I’m going to be quite truthful with you here, I’m as far removed as possible to be considered as any type of fashion guru, consider me a bit like a fish out of water where clothes and fashion are concerned. I have a small partition for clothes in our wardrobe which expands across the bedroom, the rest is dedicated to my wife Tracy, who is a fashion addict.
What I do understand however, is how to sell stuff online in a respectable manner. I learnt my affiliate marketing skills with Wealthy Affiliate, a company who are experts in running online businesses, have a passion to teach others their know-how by uncovering all the successful bloggers secrets.

The 4 step process for selling garments on the web successfully:
- Choose a targeted niche within the clothing / fashion sector
- Design an enchanting website around your passion
- Entice visitors into your website
- Earn Revenue from your visitors
What’s your targeted niche?
If you choose a niche like clothes to market on the web, how many people are you trying to attract?
Far too many where competition is fierce down so many avenues. Multiply this infinite amount of avenues together and you’ll probably never get a foothold in any market, this is why so many bloggers struggle. The idea is to narrow your fashion niche down towards a targeted audience, for example:
Boys Outdoor Wear, Lingerie, Girls Dresses, Women’s Shoes, Casual Wear, Gym Wear, Leather Dresses, Swimwear, Printed T Shirts, etc, etc.
By choosing a targeted niche, for example: Swimwear, Wealthy Affiliate will show you exactly how to respectfully target people searching for different types of Swimwear in the Search Engines, driving visitors into your Swimwear Website to read your carefully crafted content regarding the various styles of Swimming Costumes.
Overtime with learning, your Swimwear website will evolve with phenomenal design features enhancing swimwear to it’s full potential, become an authoritative establishment on the web and as trust increases with the Search Engines, rewards of higher rankings will be achieved.
Once organic traffic is attained, earning revenue runs automatically. This is how the successful bloggers operate.
Examples of Fashion Niches from Wealthy Affiliate’s Members:
Here’s two examples of targeted clothing niches from a couple of members:
One lady has a targeted niche for Fancy Dress costumes. She writes articles on anything associated with dressing up for any laughable occasion.
Leading up to a few months prior to Halloween she wrote fascinating articles regarding different venues where Halloween is prominent, like Whitby in the UK, describing the tours around the haunted seaside village, telling the witches tales whilst introducing her Goth costumes into the article.
Her multitude of posts regarding Goth weekends included affiliate links for Goth costumes to which she earns revenue from.
Another member’s niche is Men’s Hats. A wonderful website where he describes the origins of the Pork Pie Hat whilst introducing affiliate links to the different styles of Pork Pie Hats.
Another interesting post is the Carlos Santana Hat where he tells Carlos’s life story and introduces affiliate links into his posts for the iconic hat.
Many posts can be written about a Carlos Santana Hat, write about an album, a concert, etc. There’s always numerous ways to write many articles regarding 1 specific Hat whilst introducing the same affiliate link to earn an income from.
It’s a very straightforward process, just requires a bit of determination whist taking inspiration from other websites.
