How to convince brands to work with you

3 Ways to Create a Killer Influencer Pitch
Bruce Mars

There are thousands of influencers out there, be it on Instagram, YouTube, or Facebook. Then there are those who aspire to be influencers but don't know where to start or how to convince clients. The truth is that it's really not that hard to talk to brands and get sponsorships and free vacations. You just have to have a killer pitch.

Let's look at the top three proven ways to create a killer influencer pitch.

1. Get Visual

If you're trying to convince a brand to work with you, it's not enough to just say "I take great photos." You have to have actual samples that reflect the same work you're offering to do for them.

Make sure you have a great portfolio either on a website (for which you can use Wordpress or Squarespace).

If you really want to impress them, go for a custom whiteboard animation. Why? Because people are visual creatures. You can speak on the phone and explain how you'll help a hotel increase their Instagram followers but unless they see it in front of them with drawings and a visual explanation, they won't be convinced.

Using an animation that explains your services is a next-level approach that will really set you apart from the competition.

2. Have your numbers ready

Any successful pitch includes numbers. Of course, you'll need a dash of charisma to go with them, you wouldn't want to send a dozen statistics with a dry explanation, but you have to have numbers.

Show the client what you've successfully worked on before. For example, if you've advertised watches on Instagram with a special promo code, show in a neat table how many sales your code has gained over a period of time

You can do this nicely by using colorful charts and graphs from websites like Canva. There's a high degree of security and confidence that numbers will give you in your pitch.

If you nail their presentation, you'll be golden.

3. Talk about the outcome for the brand

Ultimately, businesses care about what you can do forthem . While you speak about your past accomplishments and sales you've made for other brands, incorporate an explanation of how this relates to the particular business in question.

For example, if you say: "I sold 100 watches for Brand X," follow it up with: "Based on my expertise and your product, I project sales of 120 at least."

Make sure that you show your interest in the brand/ product and demonstrate that you have their interest in mind.

If you're looking for a free stay at a hotel, don't lead in with: "I'd love to stay at your beautiful hotel." Why? Because this statement sounds self-focused. The hotel will think that you only care about your vacation.

Instead, say: "I love your boutique concept and I think you've got great potential which can be translated into sales with the right social media exposure."

Make the brand feel special, reinforce their idea. Show that you care about them.

Take these three approaches and incorporate them into your pitch. If you get visual, show the numbers and demonstrate that you care about the business, you'll be a successful influencer.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
