Online Fashion Magazines - Getting Started

Aug 18, 2007
Are you one of those people who love two things fashion and writing? Do you dream of becoming a fashion magazine editor but some how you think you will never get the opportunities to do this? Do you think what hope do I have to be employed by top magazines such as Elle or Vogue? You think if only they gave me the chance I know they will appreciate my talent.

It may seem impossible for you to enter a career as a fashion magazine editor, but the Internet is making this quite possible. The question is though how to do you go about getting your own fashion magazine going on the Internet?

Of course getting your fashion magazine going will not be easy. I am not saying that it is and would be foolish to give you the idea that all you have to do is sit at a computer and keep typing till you decide you want to go to bed. However with hard work, persistence and some tricks of Internet marketing you can pull yourself together with the talent you already have and make quite an achievement.

The first thing you need to be mindful of is that to start out with your fashion magazine does have to be glossy, full of photos and packed full of the latest information. Start humbly and build from there. Start with your available funds as small as that may be. You do not have to be rich to get a website up and running. You can do it on a shoe string simply by doing research and learning how to get your magazine online.

Secondly, decide what sort of format your magazine is going to take. To do this surf the net and see what other websites are doing. You will notice there are some really spectacular sites on the Internet. This may frighten you a little and lead you to ask how you are going to manage to get up to that level.

Here is a secret, you do not have to get to the superstar website appearance to be a leader in the field. Some of these spectacular looking websites are not really all that successful. They may have been able to make their site look great but in the process they have missed out on the principles of search engine optimisation. Something you should learn about as you put your magazine together. A simple looking website properly optimised will end up being the winner.

Thirdly, consider when you are going to get some of your material from. If you are interested in writing this should be no problem to you. Simply again search the Internet and you will find stacks of ideas and information. However note when you are searching for information on fashion you are not just looking for fashion per se, you are also looking for the best way to put your magazine together. Search for topics about key words, article writing and as already said search engine optimisation.

Here is a tip. Join affiliation networks and affiliate with other Internet marketers who are trying to sell their products online. Because these sites want to help you to sell or promote their products they provide a lot of pictures and ways in which you can obtain pictures to put your website or fashion magazine together. In time if your site really takes off you will be having a lot of other sites and offline retailers wanting to give you the pictures you want to make your magazine look good.

As you develop your fashion magazine and find that you are making some sales through affiliation marketing or using adsense on your site you will find that you have more available resources to do some special things with your magazine and by more sophisticated software to make your site spectacular. The important thing is that you get started on the learning curve and be persistent in what you do. To ensure that you do not become too stressed initially take the venture as a hobby. Meaning be less concerned about making your millions and just enjoy yourself as you learn.
