Lularoe is the latest and greatest money-making opportunity around! Chances are, if you’re reading this page, you “Like” Lularoe on Facebook, or are at least interested in the business. And most likely, you’ve heard of someone, somewhere making thousands of dollars every month selling Lularoe products.
Well, it’s time to consider what you can do to either boost your existing sales, or start out right- by using a blog to reach sales numbers you only dreamed of.
Did you know that unlike some companies, Lularoe does let you generate sales online and through social media? This is huge! You can (and should) absolutely use social media and a blog to promote your business! So few Lularoe reps are doing this that it’ll give you a HUGE leg up on the competition!
A few bloggers who are using their blog to generate sales online and to bring people to their pop-up parties are generating thousands of dollars per party!
I’m not going to get into specifics on signing up for Lularoe or how the business works on that end. That part is for you to research and act on. This post will be a tutorial on setting up your own blog. From there, it’s up to you to use it to generate sales specifically for your Lularoe business. This is perfect for people who want to start with Lularoe or people who have already started and who are looking to take their business to the next level!
Really quickly, a few ideas on using a blog to boost your Lularoe online sales:
– Write posts that feature leggings and clothing. This goes beyond a single image social media post and can really make your followers take the next step and purchase.
– Feature products on social media and link to your blog for more. A lot of people have questions or would like to see clothing at more than one angle. Having a blog to send people to where they can see a full feature of a product is HUGE in generating sales.
– Promote your Facebook sales group and other social channels on your blog to bring everything full circle.
– Feature satisfied people who have bought from you – thus making others want to do the same!
– Talk about your own experiences as a salesperson and encourage other people to sign up through you – thus generating a HUGE opportunity for those much-talked about bonus checks!
The cost of starting and running your own blog is literally so low, selling TWO pairs of leggings can pay for an entire year!
Take a look at the steps below to see how to start yours today!
There are many reasons why I recommend HostGator. For starters, HostGator guarantees 99.99% uptime for your blog. They also have fantastic customer service available 24/7/365. Another reason is that their pricing is really good. (Save 25% more with code BLOGGINGOMG) Lastly, as you are about to find out, setting up a WordPress blog with HostGator is extremely simple.
Note: I am a HostGator affiliate. I do earn a commission when you purchase hosting. There are hundreds of webhosting companies out there who pay very nice commissions as well and I choose to promote HostGator because I truly believe they are the best company for people starting a blog.
Head over to HostGator and click get started now to choose a hosting plan. I would start with the small one aka “Hatchling”. As your blog grows, you may need to upgrade (no problem!), but starting at the small level is perfect.
Once you choose your plan, you’ll see this screen:
Choose a catchy domain name. One that relates to your business also helps! When you type in a domain name, it will tell you that it’s available or already taken. When you find one that’s available, get the .com ending only. They will offer you others- just pass on those. Definitely get the “domain privacy protection” that is offered at $1.08 per month. This prevents your personal information from being available when people search for the registration information of a website.
With HostGator, the longer the term that you sign up for, the less money it costs you per month. I recommend signing up for at least a one-year term. This keeps your per month cost down and makes you MUCH more likely to stick with your blog!
So, select your hosting package and billing cycle length and then create an account username (your password will be emailed to you upon signup) and security pin.
Scroll down and enter your billing info.
Below that will be 4 options for add-ons. Make sure to deselect those, as none are necessary.
The next section will have you enter a coupon code. Here’s where you will enter BLOGGINGOMG to save 25% on your order!
Next, it’s time to review your order and continue to checkout.
After your payment goes through, you’ll receive an email (usually within minutes) containing important information including your new password. Also in the email will be a link to your cPanel, which is the control center of your blog. You’re going to want to click that. You’ll have to login.
Once you’re passed that screen, you should get to your cPanel. This is the “back end” of your site and where all of the key technical matters will take place. You won’t actually blog from here, but this is where you will be installing WordPress to your blog.
Aside from that, you won’t need (or want) to spend much time in cPanel unless you truly know what you are doing.
It’s now time to install WordPress. In your cPanel, scroll down and look for a “Software/Services” section. It’ll look like this:
Click QuickInstall to move forward.
Now you’ll be at the WordPress install screen.
Choose WordPress on the left under “Popular Installs” (step 1 above) and click “Install WordPress” on the right (step 2 above) to move forward.
- The domain that you’re installing WordPress on.
- Leave this blank unless you want an extension on your site. For example, if you enter “blog” into the box, WordPress will be installed on www.yoursite.com/blog as opposed to just www.yoursite.com.
- Enter the email address you want to have associated with your blog. It will be @yourblog.com
- This will be the title of your blog.
- Enter a username other than “admin” here for security purposes.
- Your first name.
- Your last name.
- Click the “Install WordPress” button.
Now, check your email for your WordPress username and password and a link to your WordPress dashboard.
You can also find your credentials by clicking “View Credentials” in the bar at the top of the page:
Bookmark the URL they give you- that is your WordPress login URL.
You’ll see a screen that looks like the one above. That is your WordPress dashboard. Hold your mouse over the “Posts” option and a new dropdown menu will appear. Click New Post and you’re off and running! To delete the original post that they put there, click all posts and you’ll see an option to trash that “Hello World” post.

Now that you have your WordPress blog, it’s time to make it look good. You could go with a free theme and try and customize it to your liking. Or you could use a high-quality, beautiful premium theme. I recommend a Genesis theme.
