To all of my blogger and influencer friends- Saying no to a brand can be hard! It is totally okay to set the boundaries of what you want. Don’t be afraid to walk away if they are not meeting your requirements!
It can be difficult to say no or to push for what it is that you deserve. I hear bloggers all the time saying they don’t know what they should be paid and there are a lot of brand that take advantage of that. I have worked with tons of different kinds of companies and one thing I have not been afraid to say is- no.
But how do you politely say no? If you want to work with a brand you don’t want to just automatically say no but you can negotiate for what it is that you want.
Here is an example of what to say to a brand-
Thank you so much again for being open to a partnership with me. At this time my content calendar only allows for guaranteed post spots for paid campaigns. Photoshoots, editing, writing captions, engaging with my audience & answering questions all takes time and talent and I want to make sure my content is as high quality as possible.. Like any business it is very hard to work for free. I’d love to continue this discussion so we could come together to make a great partnership happen.
This is a great way of saying- I am also a business. Please pay me for my time and work I am putting into this.
As a full time creator I take negotiating my terms very seriously! I need to be able to support myself financially, so I have no problem turning away collaborations that don’t want to pay me for my time.
If you want to know how to find paid partnerships and grow your audience I have an ebook on how I grew mine. Click here for the ebook ! It is currently on sale for only $20. If you are needing help coming up with content I also have a content idea planner to help! Grab now for only $7!
Hi everyone! I don’t tend to get too personal on social media but I love updating the blog and getting to really write important stuff down to look back on.
This last year has been a really crazy one. I started this business and threw myself into full time influencing/blogging. I also started coaching and wrote a couple ebooks! In the past year I’ve grown my following by the thousands and starting helping other women do the same.
I took a job for a very short period of time that I knew was not the one for me at all. That lasted about two months and I am back to full time influencing, which is what I really love. I am also going to be getting my real estate license (which I wish I had with this crazy market).
I lost someone close to me, and have learned a lot because of it. This world has been full of so many challenges and it has been all about taking it day by day.
I have gotten to work with some incredible companies and have been able to make more money as a micro-influencer than I did at that other job.
If you are wanting to be able to do the same thing I do I do one on one coaching and I also sell my ebook!
Hi everyone! Life has been so crazy lately. I recently started a new job and I am adjusting to blogging and also working. I am in the office Monday Wednesday and Friday now, and it is completely different! I got used to only working from home and for myself. I am now doing social media and online retail for a small business!
I also just had a birthday February 13th! I turned 24 and celebrated by going to brunch with my boyfriend and then we went to happy hour with my best friends!
I have definitely stepped out of my comfort zone which is hard for me to do. I love that I have made some changes and keep on growing! I still plan on expanding my own business and growing that while working part time.
I am also taking coaching clients if you are interested in one on one coaching! For anyone looking for grow their social media and work with brands I help other bloggers step up their Instagram game and land the paid collaborations they are wanting.
This weeks post is a highly requested one. I’ve gotten asked on Instagram many times how I stay motivated to post and to keep creating content. The answer is actually pretty simple…I love it! I genuinely enjoy what I do. I have a great time meeting up with my blogger friends to shoot photos and I have gotten to work with some incredible brands.
Doing what I love motivates me! I know the harder I work and the more consistent I am the more opportunities I get. This job is all about what you make from it. This year has been an extremely hard one. With so many ups and downs this has been consistent for me. I have also been able to grow and get better at what it is that I do.
I have been lucky enough to work with some big brands and gotten chosen for some exciting collabs. Some of my favorite collaborations have been from companies who have reached out to me! They love my page and they pick me to advertise their product and that feels like such an honor.
I got to work with Stella Artois, and they picked me as their micro-influencer for their campaign. That felt absolutely amazing! I had such a great time learning how to work with a bigger company like theirs.
I decided I needed to help other women be able to work with brands and I started my one on one coaching page. I knew that, that wasn’t enough and maybe some people didn’t want one on one so I created an affordable EBook also to help them land paying collabs.
I stay motivated knowing I am making progress and growing. I love to write everything down and to look back and see how far I have come. I consistently add new goals to accomplish and that keeps me motivated.
Are you a blogger or influencer wanting to start getting paid for your social media? Then this post is for you! I wrote an EBook to cover any questions you may have and to help you land your first paid collaboration.
Because of Covid I went full force on social media and really made the most of it. I turned it into my full time job in 2020 and I want to teach other women how to do the same thing! I coach one on one privately and I wanted my class to be even more accessible and affordable!
I also created another EBook at a cheaper price for those starting out and needing advice on growing their following on Instagram.
