I’ve started to notice in some of the blogger groups I am in that influencers are struggling with brand negotiation. I have posted before about how to pitch brands. However, I think there is a step beyond that that not many people cover and that is the tough negotiation .Not knowing how to word emails to sound professional, nice but also to help bring a message that our work is worth something. So I am bringing you beyond the brand pitch on this tips and tricks Tuesday!
I don’t know about you all but 2020 is the year of ROI for me. I am really reflecting on brands I loved working with and reaching out to new brands I already love. I want my content to be better, to be more meaningful. That means not taking on free product exchanges unless it is something that really blows me away. Pro tip: I usually tell brands I’d love to accept items to try but that I don’t guarantee posts for gifted product. That way if I am blown away I can post and if not I don’t feel pressured too. This is also a great way to build your content calendar out.
What do you cover?
I have included a downloadable PDF document that you can save for easy reference. It not only covers brands pitches but has response emails to the tough questions. Responses cover topics from brands asking you to work for free, try it out the first time for free, be an ambassador and a few more topics! I really hope this can help give you confidence in your response to brands. YOUR WORK IS WORTH IT!
