How I’m Landing Brand Partnerships Using My LadyBossBlogger Course Knowledge
It has now been a month since I started my LadyBossBlogger Course (not familiar with this? Check out my first blog post here!) and I’ve got a few more thoughts to share with you today.
First of all, I’m feeling even more confident than before reaching out to brands for partnerships.
I still don’t hear back from every brand, but the conversations are being started, and many have been successful!
Landing the Partnerships
Thanks to the course’s guidance on how to structure my initial proposal, I’ve begun a new partnership with SnapSource that I am super excited about.
This week, I reached out to a shoe brand that I love, as well as a watch brand I’ve admired for many years. I am looking forward to hearing back from them soon!
Since implementing some of the techniques recommended in the course, I’ve been able to put together great pitch emails when reaching out to these brands.
I’ve recognized that for me, it isn’t important to simply begin partnerships just to say I’ve created collaborations.
Instead, I’ve identified brands that I truly love and either already use regularly or am excited about trying out in a practical way.
This has really helped me to put together meaningful information in my pitch communications – I have been able to really add that personal touch, such as taking a trip through Italy in my favorite boots from a brand, or a real need to find a new snap application tool as I sew rompers for my daughter and niece.
I think this has helped me stand out in my communication as someone with a real connection and desire, rather than simply a blogger looking for connections.
Learning the Guidelines
Another thing I found to be super helpful in the second half of the course was the breakdown of FTC Guidelines.
I had no idea I wasn’t labeling my posts appropriately for some of the companies I partner with! I had always thought that the only posts I needed to label were those that were paid, but I learned that posts including products I’ve received for free need to be labeled particularly, as well, in order to be compliant with FTC Guidelines.
The course broke this down in a very understandable way, so I can feel confident that I’m on the right track with things now.
The End Results
This course has cemented my thought that full-time blogging is not something to sneeze at – it truly requires work!
Although I don’t intend to blog at this level, where my work here will fully fund my lifestyle, I have been able to take the tips and tricks and work them into my routine in a way that helps me capitalize on what I am already excited about doing.

Honestly, I think it is a great resource for anyone trying to figure out how to make their fun hobby balance the time it takes to complete it!
