Tips for pitching yourself to a brand/merchant?

If you've applied to any campaigns in our Marketplace (or if you've ever reached out to any brand, for that matter) you know that a friendly, personalized message can only help your chances for collaboration.


Does any influencer have a tip on what to write when you get to that "Send message to the merchant" box during your sponsored campaign application?

@SashaMarie

Emily Helwig I usually treat the "Send message to merchant" box like a cover letter. I introduce myself, give them a brief history of my work and strenghts, and then thank them for their time and consideration.

Sasha Johnson That's great advice! In my opinion, it's the brand's first direct interaction with you, so you have to put your best foot forward. Thanks for chiming in!

caroline ortiz Hi Caroline! It's completely free to join a campaign, all you have to do is apply. Once approved by a brand, you'll be sent a free product (if the campaign is offering one). Once the product is received, you can start on your blog post or video. If there's no free product being offered with the campaign, you can start on the post or video right away. Everything is managed/tracked right through your My Campaigns Dashboard.

Emily Helwig This is a great answer which leads me to a question. What happens after it's in the dashboard? How does the Influencer update the dashboard after receiving the product?

@BestofCyndi

Emily Helwig Hi Emily! You're the best! I really appreciate your quick responses. I received the updates on my dashboard and have submitted all for review. Thanks Again!
