One of the best ways to grow our blogs and turn them into businesses is to create our own opportunities. But what do we do when paying for influencer marketing is taboo for many companies and brands? This industry is competitive, particularly in Europe, and creating our own destiny is sometimes the only way to succeed. If you're struggling when it comes to strategically pitching brands here and abroad, or you feel like you need help navigating cross-cultural brand relationships, this session is for you. We’ll examine the nuances of working with companies both local and across the globe, and outline best practices for pitching – from finding the right contact and determining the best time to reach out to skillfully asking for payment. Whether you're a micro-influencer or have tens-of-thousands of followers, you’ll come away ready to create your own destiny.
