My Top Secret Tip
IDENTIFY A NEED AND FILL IT.
Every brand has something they’re missing. Even the best, most organized brands with full marketing teams. And it’s your job to find that missing link and fill it with your talent. When you pitch, lead with this concept and it will change the game. When you say “I’d love to hear about your goals & fill any content gaps that you need filled.”
Make it about them. Not about you.
I’ve worked on the brand side before and I can’t tell you the amount of emails we received that were all “me, me, me”… We get it, you are a talented creator. But what can you do for US.
Land More UGC Deals With These Examples
Some examples of things to look out for on a brand’s social page could be:
- Maybe they’re missing video content, they have a lot of still studio style images, but no high quality video of the product
- Maybe they have a lot of video but are missing high quality imagery
- Images in a different setting/in home/not in a studio
- Testimonial style videos
- Entertaining videos
- Trends with a spin for that brand in particular
The list is really endless. There are so many things that a brand can be missing & it’s your job to identify that. But this takes practice.
LET’S PRACTICE TOGETHER. Today, I challenge you to find some brand profiles that you may be interested in working with and evaluate them. Find what they’re missing. Then respond to this email and let me know what you’ve found!
