What is Land The Deal??

Are you a blogger who is looking to seriously MONETIZE your influence? Do you create great content, but haven't found a way to work with brands consistently?
You don't need 100K followers to earn money each month through Instagram or your blog. With quality content and a strategic approach to attracting potential partnerships, you can build your blog into a profitable business in no time.

Land the Deal was created to help you understand the process behind paid collaborations with brands. Designed to eliminate the guess work from finding the influencer networks that will actually pay your rates, this course will help you draft emails that will resonate with potential brand partners and provide proven tips to help you create the content that will keep them coming back for more.

After starting my blog as a hobby in 2014, I shifted its focus from personal to professional and landed a paid deal with a major hotel chain that lasted two years. Since then, I have fine-tuned my strategies, and I am sharing the secrets that have resulted in my more than 80 paid campaigns with major brands including Pantene, Chase Bank, Olay, Alaska Airlines, and many others.

This course will walk you through the step-by-step process of applying for sponsored campaigns on influencer platforms. It will guide you through negotiation procedures to help you earn more money for your collaborations and create content that resonates with both brands and your followers.

Each module offers specific tips, not generic advice, to help you navigate the influencer space with ease. The modules cover:
  • Fundamentals of Sponsored Campaigns
    • How to create value for your readers and keep your sponsors happy
  • Pitching to Brands
    • What to include in your emails and what to avoid
  • Working with Influencer Networks and Agencies
    • My recommendations of the best platforms to work with and why
  • Establishing Relationships with PR Companies
    • How to deepen your relationship with brands and find new potential partners
  • The Art of Negotiating
    • How to get paid what you are worth
  • Post Campaign Wrap-Up
    • What to do when the campaign is over to ensure future deals

  • Plus, Bonus Templates and Worksheets

This is not a basic blogging course. It will not cover topics related to creating a blog or building your readership. This course is designed for those who are looking to take their brand/blog to the next level monetarily.
These days, the influencer space has a lot of competition, so you need to adopt the right strategy and mindset to grab a brand's attention and keep it. Land the Deal will equip you with the tools you need to create a successful blogging career by forming long-term partnerships with the brands you love.
