I've had brands approach me but didn't know the right steps to take to approach the brands I wanted to work with. The Ultimate Blogger Guide for Working with Brands gave me a clear guideline for approaching brands as another income source. I've started making my list of brands I want to approach using the tips in this ebook. If you're unsure of how to start working with brands this great resource will walk you through it step by step
Reading through "The Ultimate Blogger Guide for Working with Brands: For Intermediate Bloggers" has helped give me the confidence to approach brands I love, use, and share about already about the possibility of working together. Heather gives great tips on how to prepare yourself, your blog, and your social media for partnerships. I love that she didn’t leave out the mental game when it came to transitioning to working with brands. If you are considering this transition, the guide as tons of tips to give you a great start.
When I first started blogging, I didn't even know it was possible to make money from it. Slowly I learned about ads, and then I was pitched by my very first brand. I was terrified but also excited someone wanted to pay me to write on my blog! For awhile, I would get pitched by brands, but then I wanted more. I began going out on my own and doing the pitching. I also started getting bold and negotiating my contracts to get the money I knew I deserved. I learned how to say no, here are my rates, and I learned when and what to say in a pitch. Now I want to help YOU do the same thing and earn what you deserve as a blogger. I can't wait to see your successes by using my guide!
