I’m an Influencer, what proven record should I be able to share when reaching out to brands? #InfluencerTips

🥋If you're looking for influencer services from Dear Mishu, click here

You’re already ahead if you realize that it’s best to contact brands only once you have a proven record as an influencer.

Focus on:

  1. Evidence you helped another brand to sell… (you can do this via free campaigns if you haven’t gotten paid ones yet)
  2. Show that you are recognized as someone who gives excellent service
  3. A lot of followers (it is what it is… 😞 )
  4. >2% engagement rate
  5. Amazing, related story-telling content
  6. Get others to refer you to that brand

Good luck, hero!

Attitude is often what is expected from you if you are known to...have an attitude. As long as it's you, test it and see if your followers connect with you over that kind of approach. If so, it's here to stay! #DearMishuDad #InfluencerMarketing #Attitude #Branding
