Blogging Advice Reviews

Great resources to improve blogger outreach

A little while ago, I posted a tweet saying that I had received a blogger opportunity from applying for a job via a Facebook group and I was quite surprised to see how many bloggers were replying to me firstly, saying they had no idea that was a “thing” and secondly, asking where they can find these sort of opportunities. I get it though, when I started blogging, I had no idea what I was doing and wouldn’t have any idea where to look for paid blogging opportunities or the chance to review products if I tried!ย

Working with brands has become a pretty standard part of blogging and it’s talked about a lot more now, with plenty of helpful posts on the internet about ways you can get started, what brands look for, how you can pitch to them and much, much more. And blogger outreach definitely works both ways and when brands and bloggers work together, it needs to be mutually beneficial to both. There are lots of great places bloggers can sign up for to apply for blogging opportunities as well as places for brands to advertise opportunities as well.

Get Blogged

This is a great website, I think specifically for newer bloggers and bloggers who are just getting into working with brands. It’s also a good place for brands to advertise what they want from bloggers and allows bloggers to apply for whatever jobs they want. If you’re thinking about starting your journey into paid blogging, then this might be a good place to start! You can sign up for free, here!

Twitter

If you’re on Twitter then chances are, you would have been the #prrequest and #bloggerswanted has tags. Although yes, sometimes they are used incorrectly and some people do post a load of rubbish on there, you definitely will find opportunities under these hash tags, if you’re a blogger or a brand! It’s a great way to advertise what type of bloggers you’re looking for and it’s a great place for bloggers to also promote themselves.

Facebook groups

Like I mentioned in the intro to this post, I said I had received an opportunity through a Facebook group I’m in. Obviously I can’t speak for everyone here because not everyone has Facebook but if you do, I’d highly recommend joining some groups. You ask to join, the group admin will usually ask a few questions to ensure that you should be in the group (as opposed to a bot, or something!) and it’s handy to take some time to have a scroll through the things people are posting. Just type in “Blogger Opportunities” in the search bar and the most popular ones should come up!

Newsletters

The Bloglancer is a great newsletter which I’ve signed up for for a while, which includes links to helpful posts for bloggers and brands as well as blogger opportunities. I’ve grabbed myself a couple from here as well, so it’s well worth signing up to receive this regular newsletter!

If you’re a blogger or a brand and have any more tips to share, I’d love to hear them in the comments below!
