4 Ways to Get a Sponsorship as an influencer

Posted 7th February 2020

This one is for the creators. We all want to those juicy sponsorships on our videos but how do you get them? Where do you start?


Today we have a short blog and it’s 4 ways of getting a sponsorship as an influencer.


So, let me grab my tea and let’s dive in…


Using an Agency:

These are the people that hunt monetizable opportunities for you as influencers. They act as the key connection between brands and the influencer.


Through Talent Management:

Having a management means that you have someone caring for your business needs. They hunt for opportunities as well as help with all your business affairs as whole. Management can also take on the role of marketing and help with growth and optimisation strategies for your content.


Reaching out to brands yourself:

As a creator you can personally reach out directly to the brands you want to work with. This can be intimidating and thus I recommended going through an agency so that you don’t have to deal with the extra faff. But just send an email, introducing yourself, what you do and what you can do for them.


Brands reaching out to you:

Occasionally brands will reach out to you personally, usually through Instagram DM’s or emails. This is a rarer scenario and I don’t recommend relying on it, especially when you’re just starting out. But learn to handle yourself professionally and look out for scams.
