As influencers, we have the opportunity to work with brands to promote and share our favorite products. But one of the top questions we get asked is, where to find those collaborations?
We always encourage bloggers and influencers to pitch and build relationships with brands. They typically are more lucrative. But also allows you to build a great partnership with the brand itself. This isn’t always easy though, and we get that. So signing up with blog partnership programs/platforms is a way we like to support our sponsored income stream.
It can be hard to find all the platforms to sign up for. And not all are created equal. Some are more lucrative, or harder to get projects. Some may be just for gifting. And others may be just for food, or beauty. But we wanted to share some of our favorite platforms that we check every so often for blog campaigns.
A few tips for working with these types of platforms is to always keep your profile up to date. Also, always read the contracts! Many of them will require you to sign over all photo rights on all campaigns from sign up. Be well aware of this when working with photographers because it can be a big legal battle if overlooked.
