Creating A Blog: Connecting With Brands

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.

I’m completely new to the blog world and had no idea you can make money by blogging. You hear about people making a ton of money through YouTube, but never really through blogging. This is a great idea, not only to get some extra cash, but to create those relationships you were talking about. I would love to hear more about your strategy on what links you would add and what brands you are wanting to tag in your photos on social media. Sounds like such a cool plan!

    Hey Jade!

    I am planning on joining the affiliate program with Amazon as my first one, then I will move on to other affiliate programs. As far as the brands I would tag on my social media, it would be the brands that I purchase from! I think I am going to focus on Athens boutiques and Nordstrom in the beginning.
