This week, I decided to dive into how to connect with brands for blog posts. I feel that it is important to have a plan for making connections and relationships.
After joining a Facebook group for creating a blog, I have discovered that you can connect brands by using affiliate links on your blog. Affiliate links are a URL address that you use in your blog post that track the amount of traffic that the link gets. Generally, after you get a certain amount of traffic or purchases from your link, you begin to earn money. I plan to join affiliate link programs when I launch my blog. I will also tag brands in pictures that I post on social media in order to form a relationship with said brands overtime.
It is important to me that I work with brands and companies who have good brand loyalty and ethics. I want to work with brands that will care about our relationship. I feel that it is important to work with companies like this so that my blog followers will have an enjoyable experience if they choose to buy clothes and products that I suggest. Teaming up with great wholesome brands and companies will be vital to the success of my blog because it is another way that I will be marketing myself.
