Being a beauty blogger can have many blocks: If you’re successful at it, you can get free beauty products and opportunities to work with famous brands as a blogger or writer.

You could build an audience of thousands of readers, fans and subscribers. Here are 4 strategies to get you to be the best beauty blogger.

1. Decide whom your audience is.

You may choose to start a beauty blog on your own, or you may want to start working for another company or through an agency. You can also do both. Keep in mind that if you decide to work for someone else, you may be responsible  for maintaining a certain amount of social media interest in your material (for instance, through “likes” or “shares”).

2. Plan your budgets and finances.

Don’t expect to be successful beauty blogger overnight. If you’re starting your own beauty blog, you’ll need other ways to support yourself financially – at least at first. Have a strategy for paying your bills until your blog generate enough income to be your full time career.

3. Find your niche.

A niche is a topic with a specific focus. Think about what makes your beauty routine unique and try to come up with a topic that relates to you. Make a list of niche ideas, and then do online searches to assess how much competition you’ll have in that area. You don’t need to be the only beauty blogger in your niche, but you don’t want to pick a topic that is so general that  you’ll have difficulty making your mark. Keep in mind that  you’ll want your blog to adhere to your niche as much as possible, so don’t choose a topic so ultra-specific that you will run out of ways to write.

4. Find and know your audience.

Once you’ve figured out your niche, you can find who your target audience is. Get to know who they are and what they would like to read about. Think about what would motivate the people who would visit the type of content you’re offering.
