How to Create Useful Content As A Fashion Designer Content Creation Mini-Series [Part 2 of 3]
Creating content is an old marketing strategy but has been the millennial online brand’s game changer across the digital space. No matter what niche you’re in, you have to diversify your content to serve your audience. Because everyone has a different learning style it's important to create more than one format of content. Part two of this content series will discuss content topics that fashion designers and fashion store business owners should create outside of their portfolio, product lists, and behind-the-scenes work.
Fashion designers, like many beauty artists, have a great strategy for entertaining and enticing their audience. It's understandable because most of their products are visual and they need to attract the right customers to their online stores, events, and local brick-and-mortar businesses. Most fashion designers and/or online boutiques consistently showcase their products, product numbers, and customer review as a great way to appeal to the imagination of their audience. However, there are many people who aren't sure if certain pieces or outfits will look right on them. They aren’t sure which accessories compliment their skin tone and wardrobe. That's why informing and educating a targeted audience is equally important as showing items the brand has to sell.
There are three things fashion designers and boutique owners can do to educate all members of their audience online as well as in person.

Just as you would communicate with both ladies differently, you'd would create content in their language to communicate in the same way. Once you’re clear on your ideal buyer's demographics and needs, you can create content to attract this person.
