Have you ever considered starting a blog but didn’t know where to begin? Do you have a love for all things beauty and want to share your passion? Today we’re bringing you some pro tips to start your new beauty blog off on the right foot.

If you’re new to the blogging world, it can get overwhelming when faced with so many options for images, customization, and marketing. Luckily, BeFunky has you covered with their Photo Editor, Collage Maker, and Designer tools!

Choose Your Topics

When you’re starting your blog, it’s helpful to pre-plan the topics you will be covering. This is nice because it helps you market your blog to the right demographic and lets your audience know what to expect from you. When your readers know the type of content to be expecting, they will be more inclined to subscribe and keep coming back!

A tip I practice myself is to designate a day to brainstorm and write out my content for the week.

Create Quality Photos

Now that you have your topics and know the audience you want to appeal to, it’s time to start creating your content! One of the best tips I have for you is to include quality photos in your blog posts.

BeFunky’s Photo Editor has a full arsenal of tools you can use to make your own photos as fabulous as you can! If you’d like to use stock photography, you can also choose from pre-made templates in Designer for blog images that you can customize to fit your needs, or you could also make your own, too.

Create Pictorials of Your Work

If you’re wanting to have a successful beauty blog, you’ll want to include some tutorials of your work in your posts. You can put together step by step guides for makeup, hair, or nails that your audience will love. I personally like to use the Collage Maker to create pictorials that show off my newest nail designs! This ensures your work is easy to follow and pleasing to the eye.

Market Yourself With Social Media

For an online beauty blog, it’s important to market yourself and remember that social media is your best friend! To begin, you’ll need to create a brand presence for your blog on several different social media sites to attract new readers to your site. With BeFunky’s Designer Toolset, you have a complete starter kit to get your blog looking its best!

Simply head over to the Social Media headers tab and customize the look for your Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and more. They have ready made templates that are sized to fit each format perfectly, so there’s no guess work involved! Here’s a couple of posts to get you started:
