Unique Career Paths That Style Influencers Can Take for a Reliable Income

Unique Career Paths That Style Influencers Can Take for a Reliable Income
Posted By: Dixie Somers on December 27, 2021

Influencers are making inroads in the marketing world, and there is good reason for it. Statistics from major business reports show that influencers now reach $15 billion, and influencers will have doubled sales for many different types of businesses.

However, businesses still struggle to know how to approach an influencer and how to pay for the benefits they bring. This means it can be hard to make a full-time living as an influencer and businesses may not know who you really are and may not trust your trendsetting style, especially when you don’t have the needed skills. So, how can you make money as a fashion influencer? Here are four ways to make money in the fashion industry, and many of these career paths are very lucrative.

Traditional Career Paths



When you are a fashion influencer but don't really know how to make money off of your popularity, you might want to choose a more traditional educational path, just so you have something to fall back on if you find you don't make enough money as a social media fashion influencer. Having a career plan on the side can help you maintain stability until your work as a fashion influencer starts to finally pay off in the future. It’s always important to plan ahead when creating a career plan.

Cosmetology



You might want to think of entering into a cosmetology program. In doing so you learn more about your field of interest and can be a better social media influencer.



More than that, you can also work in other fields like film makeup artistry, cosmetology for special events like weddings and celebrations. Remember cosmetology will teach you more about skincare and makeup that you can also use as a popular fashion trend influencer. Once you have the training you need, you can even consider opening your own business and hiring talented professionals like yourself.

Fashion Design



Depending on the area you specialize in, you might consider an educational career in fashion design. Create your own designs and clothes that you sell and promote on your channels. Get the educational experience you need to take your fashion trend interests even further.

Fashion Merchandising



Maybe you aren't all that creative and don't see yourself as a designer. If that is the case maybe you want to learn the business of fashion. If you study fashion merchandising, you'll learn how to manage a fashion business and can work your way to the top in the fashion industry.

Develop Your Online Marketing Skills



If you really want to be a popular and lucrative fashion trend influencer, there are many career paths you can take. You are not limited to being a YouTube influencer. Instead, you might learn cosmetology, fashion design, or another fashion-related career. But if you do want to become a social media fashion influencer, then you'll want to learn and acquire important marketing skills to promote your channels and make money. Learning these skills also requires some form of education, so the sooner you get started, the faster you will be on your way to success.
