Is it possible to get sponsored by brands even if you have a small following?
Yes, it’s absolutely possible BUT I don’t recommend sitting around waiting for brands to reach out to you. I, personally, recommend taking matters into your own hands!
1. Join Influencer platforms/networks:
These are networks that connect brands to influencers. Usually, you sign-up on the website, they ask you a few questions, and once you’re accepted, you get to apply for sponsorships with brands. I got to work with one of my dream brands using influencer networks! Check out my favorite 5 influencer networks here.
2. Reach out to brands yourself:
Did you know you can pitch to brands? Of course, you did. Don’t wait around for brands to email you. Email them and negotiate the amount you will get paid! I highly recommend this if you have a smaller audience!
