Affiliate Marketing For Ethical Fashion Bloggers

As an ethical fashion blogger who wants to promote sustainable and ethical  choices, it can sometimes be difficult to find ways to monetise your blog whilst still sticking to your values. I often find myself turning away advertising because it is not for ethical products but there are ways to make money from you blog even if you set yourself a strict criteria of what you will and won’t promote.

Affiliate marketing offers a great way to make money from your blog whilst choosing exactly which products and retailers you want to promote. Of course, in order to ensure that everything is above board you need to disclose that your post or site contains affiliate links. You should also only promote the products that you really love and would have featured on you blog anyway as this helps to keep it authentic and true to you.

If you don’t already know, affiliate marketing is a way of making money by putting links to retailers or banners on your websites. You will usually get paid a percentage of any sales generated within a set time after the click eg 30 days. There are a number of affiliate networks that represent the retailers and provide links, banners, tracking and payments all managed through online portals. I usually find the links to individual products that I like within posts are far more effective than banner ads.

Basically, the more traffic you get and the more relevant the products you feature, the more will be sold and the more money you can make. I wrote a post quite a while back for IFB which gives a lot more information on how you can maximise income to your blog with affiliate marketing, you can check it out here.

Here is a round up of the main brands and retailers that sell ethical fashion and the networks that you can join their affiliate programmes through.

By the way, I just thought I ought to mention this post does contain affiliate links. But this by has no means affected what I have written with the aim of helping bloggers who would like to make money from their blogs whilst promoting ethical fashion.

What do you think? would you consider giving affiliate marketing a go?

Thrifty DIY And Upcycling Round Up For March

For March, the Ethical Fashion Bloggers were challenged to make or upcycle a piece of clothing or accessory without spending much money. There is some fantastic inspiration here on ways to refresh your wardrobe with really easy ways to refashion an old piece of clothing to slightly more complex sewing projects for a whole new piece of clothing from something old, all without spending much money at all!

Terri at Rags Against the Machine has upcycled this beautiful printed shirt by replacing its buttons and added cute hearts to this skirt to cover burn holes.

Pao from Project Minima has been making good with scraps! This reversible vest has been made with real attention to detail right down to the handmade bias tape edging.

Franca of Oranges and Apples has made this fantastic dress using a thrifty sheet that she got from the Salvation Army.

At Thrifted Shift a cosy cardigan refashioned with some new buttons (and a very sweet dog!)

Vix at Vintage Vixen has made some Hippi tastic jeans by customising a pair she got at a car boot sale.

I recycled some old t shirts into a headband. Further details of this project on my blog Ethical Fashion Blog

If you fancy having a go at creating your own DIY clothes by upcycling something old, why not join us at Ethical Fashion Bloggers and take part in our monthly DIY round ups.

With warmest wishes
