Hi sweet reader,
Collaborations, referrals and influencer networks….
It’s not a secret the whole online influencers business in booming right now.
Honestly, i don’t like the word online influencer.
I’m convinced the most important things in the world isn’t an online thing.
I don’t need to be a online influencer for my family and friends.
I prefer to see them in real life and ‘trying’ to be real for you.
It’s an obssession i know, but i guess we need to be aware of a lot of things aren’t real.
My Instagram page for example, is absolutely a reflection of who i am.
But most of my pictures at my feed are the best of a selection of 10 ;).
A selfie is not just a selfie, it has to do with the perfect light,
background and facial expression.
I know a few people will copy these actions and getting inspired by the pictures i took.
And that’s exactly why there are a lot of people who want to take advantage of you as a blogger.
A couple of weeks ago i read a article about company’s who didn’t want to pay for a blogpost or social post.
They want to advertise for free and also had some conditions too.
Of course when i just started i was flatterd when a company wanted to work with me.
Now i’m getting a bit more “business”,
i can say it’s ridiculous when a company doens’t want to pay a blogger/influencer for a post.
And yes i’m also talking about item reviews.
A blogpost isn’t something you do in 15 minutes,
it takes a lot of work and energy.
Eventually it is work now.
Well, that said i have a few advices for you to set up some fairly collaborations.
First of all, if you didn’t know there are a lot of agency’s who can help you to connect with brands.
I can’t mention all of them, because there are too many nowadays.
For now i will specifying the ones i’m using……
– Is a big agency which connect influencers with brands.
a note is you need to have a lot of readers/followers to be interesting.
I’m using it since a while, but it hasn’t been really effective for me.
– Is a US agency which connects you (primary) with asian stores.
I’m not really sure what the effects are of these collabs, because i just joined them.
– One of my fave, i have a few collaborations because of Shoppinglinks.
You will be match after you’ve applied and then you can choose which collab you like.
– you need to get an invite to join Rewardstyle.
I think this is one of the first (and biggest) influencers marketing agency in the world.
A lot of “big bloggers” are connected with Rewardstyle.
– I’m not sure exactly how it works, because i didn’t had a collaboration in the past.
Maybe i’ll describe from this platform.
But i wanted to mention it, maybe it works for you!
– Defintely my fave! a UK influencers platform with bloggers from all over the world.
I’ve got several different collaborations with brands.
At the moment i’m busy with a great brand as well.
– Reachbird is als a big agency, but myabe not that interesting for me.
Just like influenceratwork i’m going to subscribe from this.
It looks like it’s not that active.
Anyaway, there are many many more.
Obvisiouly there are also a tons of PR agencies, but most of them are asking for a commission.
I’m also curious if you have any suggestions for (honest) agencies?
