The beauty industry is now fully working in tandem with independent bloggers who review various brands and products. They have found this method of marketing to be incredibly powerful, because essentially their best case for buying their product is made by a consumer, to other consumers. It’s a really personable approach to their customers and the cooperation between bloggers and companies as hit new heights. Only the best of the best can make their livelihood purely based on their blog and together with a YouTube channel, on reviews and style tips. However, beginners and semi-pros are able to use their platform, fanbase, and expertise to sell items of their sponsors and startup a small business right from home.

Be trustworthy throughout
Make the transition from, reviewer and blogger to an independent business owner, publicly. Remain in full and transparent contact with your fans, for they are your loyal consumer base; without them, you wouldn’t even be in this position in the first place. It must be your ethos to be completely impartial and unbiased. Only sell the products that you personally believe in, fans and first-time viewers want authenticity because that builds trust both financially and mentally. This means you will have to carefully plan how much stock you’re willing to buy and store.
