When it comes to reaching out to other brands and companies you want to make sure you’re doing it the right way, right? You want to make sure that you’re reaching out in a way that they’re going to want to work with you. That’s what these tips are going to help you to do.

Know Who You’re Talking To

The most important thing you can do is research the website or individual before you send a message to them. You need to know that they actually write about topics similar to yours. Sending an email to someone who doesn’t write about what you have to offer is only going to waste both of your time.

Know What You Want Them To Share

If you already have the article written that you want someone to share make sure you mention it. If you are planning the article and you’re still open to feedback then let them know that as well. Make sure you already have it figured out rather than leaving it up to them to do the work of finding an article.

Write the Post

If you really want to make things easy you can actually offer to write the post for them. Offer a full guest post where you create the content and they just have to put it on their website and click ‘publish.’ It’s going to make things a whole lot easier for them and that makes them more likely to want to work with you.

Be Polite

Someone who is already an influencer is likely receiving hundreds of emails (or more) a week. That means if they’re taking the time to look at yours they already have plenty of options. You want to set yourself apart from some of those. Taking the time to thank them for their consideration and to talk about why you want to work with them specifically is definitely going to do just that. And it might get you the link.
