It can be difficult to know how to start getting brand deals 🙄as a content creator, the following will cover how you can land your very first brand deals (unpaid), which provide the foundation of your portfolio. Check out our story for an email template you can use, just remember to personalise it around what you do!
1) Create a compelling pitch template which introduces yourself and what you do, a key selling point👊 about your brand (high engagement or following # depending on where your account is at presently), a leading sentence which outlines why your interested in working with them specifically and a question aimed at gauging their interest in working with you. (Template in story)🤗 2) Create an excel doc or use a CRM to log the details of 50-100 companies in the location and/business type you want to work with. It could be your home city or a destination you want to go and can be tailored to fit your brands niche👍
3) Send the pitch doc to ALL the brands 1 by 1, personalising the names of each brand and contact name where possible. Expecting to get a response rate of between 5-10% you should have atleast 5-10 companies interested in hearing more. Do this in one go and you can easily get 50 done in an hour.
4) Send your rates and negotiate (if you are just starting out offer your services for free or for free accommodation/product for the first 3-5 brands. This can be invaluable in gaining experience and will also allow you to start building your portfolio which you can leverage in later negotiations to get actual money) 💰
As I got older, the less I celebrated occasions. Today is no different, but i am thankful that I get to be her mom. I’m thankful that I get to celebrate with Cky and my mom. They drive me effing crazy, but this life definitively wouldn’t be what it is without them. Happy Mother’s Day to everyone celebrating. #myprincess#myforever#ckyleegrace#iloveckyleegrace#ckyleegracesassysix
