What To Do Before Applying To Shein

Before you click that big apply button on the Shein website you’ll probably need to clean up your online and social media appearance a bit. This is an easy but necessary step to getting approved. Major clothing brands do not want to be associated with content creators who post thing that don’t fit with their brand image.

Take a quick look at your social media and ask yourself what impression each post would give to a Shein employee who was judging your account. If you think it wouldn’t be deemed professional enough, get rid of it. You should also setup a business email at this time. You don’t need to have your own domain, so something like “yournamemodeling” at gmail will work fine.

A few other tips to handle on social media before applying to Shein:

  • make sure your profiles are all public so they can be viewed by anyone who wants to verify your status
  • have more than just a handful of posts
  • link to your other social media accounts in your profile
  • state your country
  • have an indication that you want to be a model
