This quote is so 100% true!! I have seen multiple people posting recently and have had a few messages over the past few days regarding sponsorships.
Putting a post up asking for brands to approach you for sponsorship or sending out the same messages to multiple companies will not get you anywhere.
To be recognised by a brand, you need to first LOVE the brand!! They want to see you using their products that you have purchased from them, raving about it before it gives you any sort of gain and really believing in that brand!!
For example, I am sponsored by the lovely team at @omegaequine !! I love their products, use them, rave about them and BUY THEM! If I was to go to NAF or Bluechip and ask for sponsorship it would be wrong, I don’t use their products, I don’t buy their products and wouldn’t want to represent a brand that I can’t truly promote!
So if your thinking of sponsorship but don’t no where to start, then I would say invest time in the companies you love, get to know the person behind the social media accounts, rave about the products, buy the products and show a genuine interest and the recognition will come 💁🏼♀️💁🏼♀️ Stop with the blanket emails!!!!!
