Everyone wants a piece of the pie, how to make sure you’re getting a piece of the pie and the right portion.
lol, like what I did there. omg okay, I have to stop, moving on.
Negotiation is key, and also knowing your worth but when everyone is so hush-hush when it comes to how much they earn or charge, can make things a little difficult for you when knowing how much is too much or too little when charging for paid campaigns.
There are several different factors that I had really gone in depth in this blog post here.
It’s A Numbers Game
There are tools that allow you to track your engagement, followers, age, gender and so much more especially when using features built right into Instagram, like Instagram Business Tools.
If I were you, and you wanted to get serious about your numbers, do a weekly – monthly engagement check-in report, so when brands do email you or you pitch to a brand, you know the exact, who, what, where, when and WHY they should be doing this paid campaign with you.
Cut The Sh*t
If I am being honest, it’s almost never this complicated. Most of the time, a brand already has seen some sort of value in your Instagram and social networks and already created a social strategy for their upcoming campaigns. However, sometimes that dreaded email comes in that there is “no budget” and are only working with product based posts… I know total dream killers right?
Because I love you babes sooo much, I have shared my secrets to turning that gifted product into a paid collaboration.
I am definitely not an expert in Instagram Business, however, I do know it gives you real-time tracking for posts and even Instagram Stories, which I mean does anyone really scroll anymore? I’ll definitely go into that at a later date, so stay tuned by clicking here.
Another stats tracking site I love and use for my own personal growth daily, weekly and monthly is Social Blade. Not going to lie, had a complete melt-down just about two months ago after looking at my stats, so tread lightly babes!
