Being in an ever changing industry like blogging means you have to be on your game 24/7. You have to be constantly striving for improvement and learning new tricks of the trade.
Whether you’ve been blogging for a month or a year, you should always be prepared for your first (or 100th) brand collaboration, especially if you plan on making blogging your full-time job.
If you don’t have any experience in marketing or sales, promoting your blog content can be challenging. There is a super fine line between actually bringing value to your readers and annoying them.
Today is it is both ridiculously easy and hard to kill it as a blogger. It’s easy because anyone anywhere at any time can start a blog with as little or as much money as possible.
One of my most frequently asked questions is ‘how do I get brand collaborations as a beginner blogger’? My initial answer is patience, but that’s never good enough and I get it.
Like anything else you do as a blogger, branding your blog takes time and hard work. Your blog name has to match your personality, your personality has to match your colour scheme, your colour scheme has to match the way you edit photos and your photos have to match your content.
Being a blogtrepreneur and working full time is extremely hard work, but it’s not impossible. In fact, all the great bloggers have done it at some point or another.
There are hundreds of blog posts out there that give tons of Instagram tips like how to get the perfect shot, how to edit your photos, what hashtags to use, how to increase your followers, etc.
