connecting brands

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?

Within our community’s responses, we saw a lot of great questions and requests for more information. Here are some helpful sources on media kits and brand partnerships:
