For many bloggers, brand partnerships represent important opportunities. They can be a fantastic way to increase your exposure and reach new demographics and audiences. As exciting as it sounds, getting there can be an intimidating process!
This #BlogTrends chat, we talked about the benefits of connecting with brands, whether you should aim for a certain brand “size”, how to make your pitch stand out, what it’s like (and how to get to) guest blog for a brand, and the ever-present question: what is the etiquette of working with multiple brands?
