I’m not a famous influencer (not yet) and I don’t generate millions of traffic, but why do I get brand deals?
I get brand deals every month, I have worked with lots of brands and been featured in some famous publications as well.
Why do brands like to work with me?
Although Inuidea.com was just another hobby project when I started it, I treated it as a serious business from the beginning.
I wrote some high-quality articles and just with 7 article I got AdSense approval. I was happy but the earnings were not great. I tried affiliate marketing as well.
As my blog grew, I started getting cold emails for brand deals and collaboration opportunities from different companies.
Now after working with all these companies, I realized that the professionalism in my work helped me get all these brand deals. The brand value, domain authority, good-looking site, high-quality articles, SEO skills, negotiation skills, and marketing skills, all these things helped me as well.
In order to work with brands and collaborate with people and companies, behave professionally, improve your communication skills, write or create better content, treat yourself like a serious entrepreneur, and treat your side hustle like a serious business from the start.
From this very fast day, make sure you create the best quality content you can!
There are a lot of videographers with 10k followers on Instagram who collaborate with camera companies and car companies for the simple reason that they create high-quality content.
Content is king.
How do brands reach out to me?
They email me actually. I receive hundreds of cold emails with collaboration opportunities every month. Also, there are sponsored marketplaces such as Intellifluence, where I get brand deals as well.

You can make videos, blog posts, microcontent, podcasts, social media graphics, etc.
