what's good you guys welcome back to my channel today's video is going to be a fun one because i'm going to be sharing with you guys how to get on pr list i think i started something i recently started growing on social media in the past couple of months and i've definitely gotten a lot of free stuff like if you guys watch my vlogs you guys know i'm still in awe of how much free stuff you can get with just this amount of followers and i will say while most brands reach out to me now that i do have more followers on social media a lot of what i did before i even started growing on social media has contributed to why i have so many pr packages coming in right now so in this video i'm going to be sharing with you guys everything that you can do no matter how many followers you have to get noticed by brands develop relationships with brands and to get on your dream pr list so the first thing that's really important when you want to get noticed by brands is something that i kind of already touched on in my last video on how to grow on instagram and that is investing in the brands that you are interested in so i told you guys in that video about how i invested in a lot of brands that i normally wouldn't buy just because they are a little bit above my price range but they are brands that i know i want to work with they're brands that i love if i had like an unlimited wallet i'd be spending my money on those brands right but i knew for me because i want to do social media full-time because i want to work with these brands i would have to invest some money up front before these brands would notice me to show brands i can make good content in their clothes and that i was also interested in their brand right so what i really suggest you guys do come up with a list of like your dream brands and i definitely will say just focus in on a few brands that you really want to pay attention to because obviously most of us probably have a limited budget so there's really only so many brands that you can invest into right be intentional about who you're investing in and what brands you want to work with so you guys know like i shared my last video the only time that i ever ordered from jaded london i bought two outfits from them and i spent around 150 right so what i did and what i really suggest you guys do is when you get products from brands really try to use those products in as much content as possible so what i did when i received a lot of the clothes i received is i of course posted some instagram pictures in them but i also created tick tock content i created youtube hauls i've just posted as much content as i could to get noticed by these brands so this is why it's really important to cross promote yourself and to post content on different platforms but especially when you're trying to get on pr list and you're trying to get noticed by brands you want to be on as many platforms as you can because you never know when a brand's influencer manager might find you so when i was posting my jaded london pictures on instagram i maybe had like 2 000 followers and that's totally fine but because i was cross promoting it and because i was tagging them on my tick tock that's the reason why they noticed me so this kind of leads me into my next tip which is to make sure that you're tagging brands when you're posting them this is kind of obvious but a lot of people will not do this because they feel like well if i'm tagging a brand then i'm giving them free promotion and what i really want from them is for them to pay me or send me free products in exchange for promotion and i totally understand that but the honest truth is if you have like a thousand followers on instagram or if you don't have a big following chances are brands are not lining up to send you free stuff right so what you really want to do while you're focused on growing your social media following is post content to show brands that you're capable of making quality content even if you don't have a lot of followers but they really like the quality of your content they might be willing to send you some free stuff but they have to be able to find you first right so you really want to make sure that no matter where you're posting these brands you're tagging them as much as possible if you're posting a youtube video with their products being featured if you're doing a haul especially you definitely want to make sure that you're including that brand and title in the thumbnail because again you never know where these brands might find you and you want to make it as easy for them to find you as possible and even like little things like when people are commenting on your posts and asking you where you got certain stuff from when you're responding to comments make sure that you're tagging the brand and not just saying their name because again that brand might just find you from that comment like you just never know my next tip for getting on pr list is to use tick tock and i said this before in my last video on how to grow on instagram but i'm going to say it again in this one just because again tik tok is the new up and coming app that everyone is on and that brands especially are on and are finding people on right so for me most brands that have reached out to me and have asked to send me some pr packages have found me through tick tock instagram is great youtube is great as well but nine times out of ten these brands are not discovering people on these apps instagram especially is not built for discovery especially if you don't have a lot of followers so using tick tock can help you a lot because even if you have like three followers on tick tock you're way more likely to get noticed by a brand and you're also more likely to grow on the app than if you were to just be posting on instagram and tagging brands on instagram right so when i started posting on tiktok that's when things really started to pop off for me and that's when a lot of brands noticed me personally and started reaching out to me and this kind of leads into one of my last tips which is to make sure of course you are being consistent and focusing on the quality of your content and i know i've said this before but i saw a lot of comments on my last video with people saying well i want to get free stuff from brands but i know i need to start posting more i don't really post that often it's like you cannot expect brands to want to work with you if they don't know what to expect from you right so before you even worry about getting free stuff from brands have a posting schedule figure out your groove figure out what works for you and what doesn't work for you figure out the best way that you can shoot your own content and just do your best when you are investing in these brands to make sure that the content is high quality and one thing that can really help with this is looking at the brand social media because it can really give you some ideas of the kind of content that they like that they're looking for to promote their brand and it can really help you understand what quality of content you need to be aiming for in order to get noticed b
Thanks for your comment Ignacia Eliasen, have a nice day.
