Hope you all had a fun and safe Memorial day weekend!!!??
Today I wanted to go over 4 easy steps in making money with your blog and social media accounts by being able to land paid brand collaborations! I will share all my tips and tricks to help you become successful!
Define your brand
Are you a fashion, lifestyle, or fitness, or a mom blogger!? What ever the case is, find out what you like to talk about, or what you feel more people will be able to relate to you on! From there, decide if you are just going to have your social media channels? Or Just your website, CLICK HERE to find out how to start a successful blog or are you going to sale something online? It is extremely IMPORTANT when defining your brand to not only look at NOW, but also brainstorm as to what your future goals are, so you can have something to work forward to! It also helps to think in the future, so you have a better understanding of your brand/ niche!
Have a Media Kit
Media Kits are important! If you are not sure what a Media kit is… It is basically a short resume for all your social media accounts, blog stats, and contact information, and a quick summary of what services you have to offer a specific company!
Some people add more topics to theirs.. But I think
Focus on growing Social Media & Blog
When it comes to growing your social media account it can be a little overwhelming! You will have numerous people telling you to grow your FB, Twitter, IG, and everything just at once, but that is not smart!
It is best to look at your stats on where you are gaining most of your audience from already, and then work your way from there. For me I started with my IG, and my blog! I am always trying to improve growth! If interested in learning HOW to grow your Instagram Quickly CLICK HERE! CLICK HERE for tips and tricks on growing your blog traffic!
Find Brands to collaborate with
There are many ways to find brands to collaborate with! One of the three ways I use are:
1) Personally reach out to the brand of interest, and send media kit!
2) Personally be reached out by the PR/ Company of interest!
3) Use a third party brand collaboration app that helps link you to brands to work with! EX: Aspire, Cohley, Heartbeat,Brandbacker, Activate, and MORE!!
