Get the Word Out! More visibility means more people taking notice of your style and perhaps adopting it themselves. Bottom line: people know people, so talk it up. But be careful; excessive “me” talk and not enough “how was your day?” conversation can work against you. Too much rambling about your picket-fence inspired hair combs can be a turnoff, so choose the right moments to talk up your latest look.
All this interaction builds networks of like-minded fashionistas and gets you moving along.
Be a Social Butterfly! We’re not telling you anything you don’t know, but it’s a social media world out there. For crying out loud, Grandma’s even doing the Skype thing! So, if you haven’t already, jump on the social media bandwagon and spread the word about your trendy ways. Here are some suggestions:
Blog: We recently wrote about how to start a fashion blog, filled with great tips on how to showcase your style. Many of the platforms that let you create your own Web site are free (we love that) and easy to develop (we love that too). So get going…take pics of yourself then upload your look. Crank out a brief paragraph explaining the thought behind your style. Don’t forget to comment on (not suck up to) other fashion bloggers, as it’s an easy way to get others interested in you.
Tweet & Post: Once you’ve created a fashion blog, share your link and its posts on Facebook, Twitter, and so on. There’s nothing wrong with patting yourself on the back and saying, “Hey, look at what I’ve done.”
Success is in the Cards: Hit Moo for affordable business cards that put you in total control. You choose precisely what you want to appear on your card (including an image of your fashionable self). Add your Web site link and even a title for yourself (be creative and have fun!). Leave some on counters, tack a couple up on coffee shop bulletin boards and hand out a few to that downtown boutique owner who’s been complimenting YOUR style for ages. In no time, you’ll be getting more retweets, shares and comments than you know what to do with.
