A few minutes into tonight's season premiere of The Bachelorette, our leading lady — JoJo, from Dallas — hosted a summit for the franchise's former protagonists, in which she received all sorts of advice on how to find The One. What she should have been looking for, though, was career advice for What Happens After. Because while ABC was airing this parade of mostly doofuses, former Bachelorette-turned-style blogger Ali Fedotowsky was busy building her brand.
About an hour into the show, Fedotowsky tweeted a where-to-buy link to the dark floral romper JoJo was wearing in the scene with the former Bachelorettes. Clicking through on Fedotowsky's link reveals some sweet, sweet affiliate linking via RewardStyle, the affiliate marketing company through which bloggers and retailers earn serious cash.
Because whether or not you find love, you might as well get paid.
