A Content Creator’s Guide to Landing Press Trips & Brand Collabs (Templates + Tips)

Are you a content creative/influencer who wants to collaborate with brands?

In the age of the ‘influencer’ and social media, brands across ALL industries are looking to extend their reach and audience through smart and successful collaborations.

Bloggers, influencers, and creatives are a great way to do that.

The only problem?

Competition is fierce. So many content creators want to work with brands — hotels, fashion brands — you name it. They receive loads of sloppy outreach and poorly put together proposals. In order to really stand out and get a second glance, it’s all about presenting your work in an impressive way while offering real value: how can you boost their brand/efforts and why are you the best person to do this? I didn’t have a huge amount of followers! And still don’t. I landed my 1st hotel press trip with only 2k followers but that didn’t stop me from getting the green light. What I did have was a passion for photography and writing and my pitch was effective.

I can help you get your foot in the door. This is a step-by-step guide for press trip beginners

I created this 10 page guide to help beginners team up with great brands while highlighting your talents and services in the best light. If you’re a beginner like I was, that’s okay. What matters is that you have proof of quality content you can produce. Photography, video, writing, whatever it is. I started with ZERO experience and still managed to land 12 press trips in one year thanks to these same outreach materials. I worked with hotels, tour experiences, spa retreats, and restaurants all thanks to the email outreach I created! Now, I want to help you with the experience I gained last year. So, I broke things down into five categories.
