But first of all “What is pitching” ?


What is pitching?

Pitching is when you reach a brand or a hotel and request a collaboration or a sponsorship. You can for example presenting an idea that will be beneficial for both of you. 

There are 2 ways you can collaborate with your favorite brands, you can stick around and wait for them to contact you, or you can go out there and contact them.

There are 2 ways you can collaborate with your favorite brands, you can stick around and wait for them to contact you, or you can go out there and contact them.

If you wait for a brand or a hotel to contact you, chances are that you are going to have to wait for a very long time. 

So, if there are any companies that you’d really like to work with, your best option is to contact them.

Keep in mind that you do not need to have a ton of followers or subscribers on your Instagram or Youtube channel, small influencers can also get free stuff and big companies start to understand this concept very well. 

However, there is a lot of competition and you definitely need to put yourself out there and work hard for it.


The right fit

The first thing that you are going to figure out is: Are you qualified to work and collaborate with the desired brand, hotels, or company? And by this, I do not mean numbers as numbers do not mean anything.

The first thing that you are going to figure out is: Are you qualified to work and collaborate with the desired brand, hotels, or company? And by this, I do not mean numbers as numbers do not mean anything.

What I mean is:

  • Does your content match with this brand?
  • Does your message fit their message?
  • Would it be beneficial for both of you?

You need to be careful as there is nothing worse than working with a brand or a company that does not fit your audience.

If you are a travel blogger, you can for example reach hotels, travel luggage, and clothing… but if you start promoting TVs & cats’ food, it has nothing to do with what you are doing.


Be transparent

Make sure that your website or Instagram account is ready and optimized before contacting any brands or companies so they know what you are all about. 

You will have about 2 minutes to convince them and give a good first impression so try to make the best of it, do not miss any chances!!!

  • Make sure your Bio is optimized
  • Great content and images
  • Easy to contact you

Tell them exactly what you are looking for and what you are going to do with them:

  • Be clear
  • Be honest
  • Be professional

The clearer and more professional you will be, the more chances you will get to work and collaborate with a brand or company.

In addition you may also be recommended by them  which will bring you more jobs in the future.


The soft pitch

The soft pitch is a small DM where you are going to introduce yourself, your brand and request an email to discuss further your future collaboration with the company that you are contacting.

you have products that would be a great fit for this post, please DM

me or email me at partnershipdiscoverevolution@gmail.com

Looking forward to hear from you

Soft pitching is a great way to introduce yourself first instead of sending a long pitching email that will probably be ignored or deleted.

Where to find contacts?

One of the best ways to find contacts will be “social media” . A lot of companies have their email & contact details featured and I reckon that it will be the best way to get started.

Another way will be to go directly to their website. Most brands will have a contact page and sometimes email list where you can reach a specific department.

A few companies now even have a blogger/influencer department so make sure to look for that as well while doing your research.


When to send Emails?

Most companies work on a daily basis from 9am to 5pm, so i will highly recommend you to not send any email over the week-end.

 If you think about it, if you send an email over the week-end the person will be receiving it on Monday morning! And getting tons of emails on the Monday after a great week-end at home can be overwhelming.

I personally send my email on Friday morning around 8 am/8:30 am.

Why Friday?

Because it is the end of the week and people are happier while knowing that they are going to be able to spend the wee-end with their family. 

And why 8 am/8:30 am?

As mentioned earlier, most companies work from 9 am to 5 pm and if you send your message early in the morning it will have the chance to be on the top of the list, increasing your chances to be seen better.


What should you charge?

I honestly am not an expert. What you should charge is, I think, totally up to you. It will also depend on your years of experience and the content/audience that you bring to the company.

If you just get started, you can ask for a sponsorship in exchange of promoting them to your website, youtube channel, and instagram account.

It is a great way to get free accommodation while traveling for example.


Follow up Emails

Yes, you’re gonna have to work more! Sending one email does not only stop there. These people are extremely busy and sometimes your email will be left out and it is important to get back to them to make sure they have noticed your request.

I will normally wait one week after sending the initial email and this email again to be short and clear. Hi

Hi

I am just getting back to you that my previous email reached you well…something like that.


A follow-up email is extremely important as these companies receive 1000 emails every single day so if you are not being consistent and not trying to put your name out there it will get lost in the sea.

Show them that you are proactive, motivated and that you are ready to collaborate with them and when you keep sending email eventually they will click on it and open it and hopefully they will agree to work with you.


Keep in mind

Keep in mind that I have created for you 5 templates. They are ready to be send so you will not have to worry about creating one.
