My Visit to the RewardStyle Office

My Visit to the RewardStyle Office | The Petite Bijou

My outfit: Dress (sold out) // Circle Purse // Sandals (sold out)

On Friday, I was fortunate enough to visit the RewardStyle office in Dallas, TX. This trip was really important to me. RewardStyle has empowered me to monetize my influence and make an income from my blog through fans and readers shopping my outfits and recommendations. Today I want to introduce you to the platform and why this trip was important.

But I was really anxious to go in actually…

I was scared my disability was getting in the way of being a influential blogger.

I was scared my modern vintage style wasn’t working. What if you guys secretly hate it? How would I even transition my blog?

All these questions were top of mind for me this summer. But visiting the RS office has put my mind to ease. I may not be a blogger that links to every darn thing on sale all the time. I don’t often feature too many expensive/luxury items. But I’ve been told I make a difference and inspire women that read my blog to find their own unique style.

That’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do. And thanks to RewardStyle, I can make it happen.

So here’s a behind the scenes look at my visit to RewardStyle, how to use their app to shop my looks, and what I learned about being a “unique” blogger.

The whole time touring the RewardStyle office, I was so impressed by the dedication to company culture and employee happiness. This was a beautiful and community filled office!

What Is RewardStyle?

RewardStyle is a Dallas based company that helps influencers and online platforms monetize their websites through affiliate links and brand collaborations. So, let’s take my blog as an example.

As stated in my policies, I may make a commission off of a click through my page. So if I recommend an item, you click the link, then you buy it, I may make a commission off of that sale.

However, you don’t pay extra for me to make a commission. This is the beauty of RewardStyle. It’s essentially, online sales!

 

How RewardStyle Helps Me

Commission from affiliate links helps keep this blog going. Every month, I have to pay tons of fees to keep this website running. When I make a commission, 90% of it goes back to my site fees. This is truly amazing, since I would have never imagined I would ever be inspirational enough to have someone buy my outfit head to toe.

As a disabled woman, this is huge for me. I don’t fit the standard blogger stereotype and sometimes I feel as though a lot of women: people of color, medical conditions, and different styles, are not represented enough in the blogging community. I’m happy that I have readers who don’t care about looking the same. Cheers to you!

 

What I Learned From My Visit

I learned that I shouldn’t care about what others are doing.

For the past few months, I have thought about what’s next for my blog and platform. I have questioned what my readers really want to see, why my Instagram doesn’t seem to grow, and when can I finally say I “made it” as a blogger.

The lovely ladies at RS spoke to me honestly and truthfully about my blog. They gave me wonderful feedback and here’s one takeaway you should know:

BE UNIQUE BECAUSE BEING TRENDY IS OVERRATED

There, I said it. Yes, it’s true. Being unique is going to pay off in the long run. Want to write about kittens? Cool. Do that.

Don’t feel like you need to wear/post the same things every other blogger is posting. The market is overwatered and being unique is the way to win in the long run.

How to BIJOU with RewardStyle

The LiketoKnow.it app has over 1.5 million users shopping their favorite outfits from influencers just like me on a daily basis.

You will never miss a shoppable post I share by following me in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, as your homepage surfaces all of my content (even secret content) in chronological order. Plus, once you’ve downloaded the app, you can also screenshot any of my LIKEtoKNOW.it posts on Instagram to instantly get the product details for my look.

You can also look at my shop page, but the app is way more convenient if you’re shopping/browsing a lot on your phone. I use it often to find cute pieces other bloggers wear.

This blog post was inspired by an event I attended with @diptyque the other week. There are so many different terminologies used in Perfumery and the history of Perfume is so interesting! I've read several books on the topic which I will share in my stories in case you are interested in learning more. What does the Perfume you wear say about you?

  • Do you have a pair of comfortable snow boots ready for winter?
-
No matter how mild, winters are always a rather challenging time for our skin, with exposure to harsher temperatures and winds, as well as dry air. And most women forget to protect their feet as they venture out to their day to day errands.
-
Today on the blog, I'm sharing the snow boots I've tried on in the past month that are not only very warm and protective, but don't distract from any outfit. I think it's possible to be both warm and stylish, is it not? Click the link in my bio to read the post.

I am in love with these @sperry snow boots, as they are not only very warm, but look more elegant than my traditional winter hiking boots.

And I leave you with a winter quote:
“When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring.” —Madeleine M. Kunin

  • Hello sweater weather, or should I say, sweater dress weather?
-
Question: Would you ever sacrifice style for comfort? Or the other way around? I wouldn't and my favorite way to combine elegance and comfort is in a sweater dress! They're easy to accessorize and perfect with fleece lined leggings - so no one knows you're secretly as cozy as you are with a jumper and joggers 😊

  • So very plaid indeed! 🍁🍂
-
This little plaid number has been my seasonal purse of choice because it’s perfect for adventuring with. Who else has seasonal purses they go through? 😆
-
I have my summer purse, my fall purse, my winter purse...and they get re-used until they break to bits. One way to be more conscious about your shopping habits is to create seasonal capsules that never go out of style. I consider this trench and this purse part of my autumnal capsule.

  • Does anyone actually read their coffee table books?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’d hope so - which is why today on ThePetiteBijou.com, I am sharing 18 of the best and most interesting fashion coffee table books. Not only to look nice sitting on your all white marble table but to actually read! 😆👗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Among these books is this one I’ve been reading called Fashion and Versailles which documents all the historical fashion events and traditions that have taken place in this French chateau. The history is so fascinating!

Check out the post via the link in my bio 💕 Do you enjoy reading coffee table books? My favorite are photo essays and history related.
