Some of the best marketing tips we could share with you ladies as business owners and entrepreneurs would be to encourage you how to reach out to brands to make some extra cash! You don’t always have to wait for brands to reach out to you, you can definitely make the first move! From your media kit to your email game, you want to be able to showcase a consistent offering so that brands that are looking for influencers can trust your content. Let us share 3 tips to keep in mind when you’re looking to reach out to brands.
First, make sure that your Media Kit is on point girl!
You might be asking, “What the heck is a Media Kit?!” well we got you covered! Your media kit needs to include a thorough summary of the unique services that you offer. Why would any brand want to partner with you rather than some other influencer on the Internet? You need to let brands know exactly what niche you will appeal to most and how you will do it. Bring day one results in your media kit, and you will start seeing business.
Second, make sure that you are among the most unique blogger brands on the market. You need to have a presence online that showcases exactly who you are. You cannot be afraid to show your face, and you cannot be afraid to have a real vision about how you present yourself. No one wants to deal with the generic blogger, so do not even try to market to a generic audience. Pick a niche and stick to it.
Third, get your email game tight.
If you really want to know how to reach out to brands, here are some email tips.
-Tell a story with your emails
-Be aware that you might not get a sale on the first contact
-People want to learn who you are, and this takes time
-Add value with every email
-Be sure that you keep your emails short, if you are conflicted about what to say and how to say it, pick the shorter option every time.
Use these tips to set yourself apart from your competition. Trust us we get it, your competition is fierce. However, most people do not take the time to build up a unique platform, and even fewer people take the time to really understand what partner brands are looking for. If you want to have a career in this exciting new world, make sure that you understand both ends of the spectrum. Give people what they want, and have fun doing it. This is the way to the top of the game when you are talking about partnering with brands.
