  1. This was insanely helpful. As a marketer by-day and a fly on the wall of influencer strategy by night (not looking to get my feet wet but love to learn) this is EXACTLY what I was looking for and I didn’t even know it. Thanks!

  2. Thank you SO much for posting this! I’ve been wanting to start a fashion blog for a long time and I finally dived in a few weeks ago. As a new blogger, this article was amazingly helpful and I’ve already started utilizing some of these resources. Thanks for posting such helpful content!
