Lands End White Halter Bathing Suit Sale

on December 27th, 2016
0 Comment

img_8738When a white bathing suit is well lined, it is one of the best colors to wear for a bathing suit. White bathing suits look fresh and show off a tan in the most chic ways. My favorites include a good looking halter tie neck one piece swimsuit that looks sexy and classy at the same time. Not too much skin and looks great when you pull on that skirt to go to lunch from the pool. I took my white Lands End white bathing suit with me to the W Hotel in Punta Mita for our resort vacation this season and it was perfect for the colorful ocean side cabanas.

Lands End Halter Tie One piece suit on sale for $33.97 from $149 – 70% off

How to Monetize Your Blog

on November 1st, 2016
0 Comment

img_8807IF you are one of those people who love taking photos on Instagram and painstakingly work on editing your photos before posting on your blog, but do not know how all these other bloggers out there are making money while doing what they love, here is some some advice I learned while blogging and working with bloggers over the years. As a blogger, I started my blog in 2008 and became one of the early influencers in the blogging industry before starting my own digital marketing company to help other fashion companies work with bloggers. I learned a lot about blog monetization along the way and helped companies work with bloggers to create creative campaigns that were lucrative for the companies and the bloggers along the way. My personal blog took a little hiatus as a built my company during those years. Today, I use my blog  to showcase some of my clients, my work, as well as give advice to newer bloggers, and also blog on fashion finds that I love. Let’s get to it.

  1. Consistency – In order to monetize your blog you need to work on consistently blogging regularly about your specific interests and finding your voice which will help you grow and audience. A regular growing audience is the key to blog monetization. The more eyeballs and blog traffic your site gets, the more money your blog can help you generate. If your reader comes to your blog at 9A on Monday and you have not posted in 3 weeks, they won’t come back again. Make a schedule and stick to it. If you blog a few times a week, make sure your schedule is a consistent weekly schedule so your reader knows when to return to read your newest post. Readers like to know that when they return there will be new interesting information for them to read again when they return. If they return a few times and find no new info, they may not come back. So sit down and decide how much you can devote to your blog based on your work and life schedule and carve out that time before you get started. It will take planning, hard work, and dedication.
  2. Blog what you know – That means looking at what you are really interested in blogging about and putting your personality into writing about it on your blog. If you love photographing and documenting your travels then a travel blog is probably your best bet. If you love photographing food, trying new foods, and writing about different food finds, then start a food blog. If you love sneakers and love collecting sneakers, wearing sneakers and researching different types of sneakers and brands, then start a sneaker blog. Bottom line is blog about what you are love. If you blog about something you are not interested in or don’t know anything about, people will generally know that you don’t know what you are talking about.
  3. Photos – Photos are important. Whether the photos are about food, people, clothing, or places, your photos are everything on your blog. Not all photos have to be your original photos, but the photos need to bring interested readers to your blog. If your blog post is about travel to New Zealand and you went there, make sure you show the photos of the places you visited along with the information you are providing to the reader. If the photos are not detailed or do not show the place you visited, the reader can quickly lose interest. The content should be accompanied by your photos to keep the reader interested. Invest in a good camera or at least make sure your photos are edited with good light before you post.
  4. Be Social – Visit other blogs that you like that are in your same category and comment and read their blog posts. Go to their social media sites and like and comment on their posts. The will do the same for you and their followers will see who they like to read and come find out what you are all about. Blogging is about community and if you can build a community that will support you within your niche topic, you can succeed even faster.
  5. Guest Blog – Ask blogs that you like to read if you can offer a guest blog post on their blog and vice versa. By offering to write an original blog post on your expertise on another blogger’s blog, you will potentially gain a new audience that may never have discovered you otherwise and the blog that you wrote a guest blog post for will have some new original content.
  6. Find An Affiliate program – If you want to monetize your blog, you should make sure to join the appropriate affiliate program so you get paid for your work when you drive traffic to your site. Many affiliate programs will require you to have had your blog for at least 6 months and some will require a referral or an invite. Some affiliate programs can automatically link to your blog content based on keywords that you use on your blog post once you add the tracking code to your site. The one I really like for commerce enabled content Skimlinks. My other favorite affiliate program is RewardStyle which requires a referral by another blogger. This affiliate program is also content driven and you can easily create links to your content to monetize all your blog posts. If you are interested in a referral to RewardStyle, email me at shopgirl@shoppingandinfo.com with your full name, URL to your blog and your email address and I will have them send you an invite to see if you qualify.

Finding American Airlines Fares Online

on January 5th, 2011
0 Comment
By now, you are well aware that American Airlines’ inventory has officially been pulled from both Orbitz and Expedia. As you know, what makes the web so fantastic for travelers is, of course, the ability for fares to be as easily-accessible as possible. The removal of American from these two online third-party booking giants is the first move from a major airline we have seen in the battle between booking sites and carriers. As travelers are fearful of other airlines following American’s lead, resulting in a more tedious search process and likely higher fares, I wanted to send you a quick note to remind you that Bing Travel provides results from all the major airlines, including American Airlines. 
Bing provides flight and hotel results directly from suppliers and agencies. Once you’ve found the best possible trip option, Bing takes you directly to the supplier’s site to continue on with your booking.
Making the booking process even simpler, Bing Travel also allows travelers to book their trips with confidence when they use Bing’s price predictive technology. This technology and data will tell you if the lowest fare for a trip is rising or dropping over the next seven days. If Bing tells you to wait on that purchase, you can set a “fare alert” for Bing to email you when your fare is low and ready to buy.
Even though the news of American being pulled from Orbitz and Expedia may seem frustrating, with Bing Travel, travelers still have the choice to search for the best possible fares in a quick and simple way (without having to choose sides in the debate), with confidence that they are getting the best possible available fare.

If you’ve seen panic spread amongst your readers, feel free to re-tweet this from @fareologist which reminds travelers that they still have options when it comes to finding the best possible fares for their next trip: “Having trouble finding all the best air fares? Bing Travel has the major airlines including American Airlines.
