Hey blogger/reader!I’m Nika.Thanks for reading!
The other day I wrote on this blog about 10 easy ways to make money online without crazy investment.
You guys seemed to like it, and I got comments asking more detailed questions on every point I mentioned.So I thought, why not blog more about it?
A few people asked ,”I’m a small blogger/beginner.Is it possible to not be Zoella and still work with brands?”
Why yes, it’s possible, fellow blogger.
You don’t have to have a million followers to work with brands.
I did some research on this topic, and I figured out some stuff worth sharing.
Here are some eligibilities that brands stick to, if you’re considering working with one as a small blogger.And if you read further, I have a step by step guide to emailing and approaching brands.
You don’t have to have a million followers on every social media platform, but you sure do need to have atleast 1000 followers on any one platform.
If you want me to write a blog-post helping you out to get your first 500 or 1000 followers, let me know in the comments!
I have a blog-post on how to get your first 100 blog followers.I hope it helps.
What brands look for is apparently not always the following or the numbers.It’s more of how much your followers engage with you,trust you, and with how much consistency they view your blog.
If you’re trying to be picture perfect everywhere, brands are less likely to work with you.
Heard of DGGYST?Did you notice how fast she grew her blog, all because of her authenticity, humour, and honesty?
Look, brands will only work with you if they get something from you.You need to give them a strong reason why working with you will benefit them.
Okay,let’s suppose you have all the things mentioned.Now, how exactly do you approach brands?
I’ll take you through it in steps.
1.Look up brands that work with small bloggers/youtubers.
2.Choose a list of your ideal brands-brands whos work is relevant to yours.
3.Make sure you have everything that brand needs in a sponsored blogger.
4.Make sure you know how to pitch your idea and relevance.
5.Find that brand’s PR contact.
6.Email them, and wait for the response~
If you want to know more detailed info on how to email brands successfully, leave a comment letting me know and I’ll make sure to help you out by blogging about it.
