Video Q+A: My Exact Brand Pitch Email + More!

One of my goals for 2018 was to bring you more video content. Although the process is definitely not as seamless as throwing up a blog post with some still photos and calling it a day, I have loved creating content that has allowed me to better connect with you guys.

A few months ago, I created a resource to get to know my blogging community better on Facebook (check out the P&P Blogging Community group here!) and have loved getting to know each and every one of you on a personal level pasts the posts and the emails.

I started to record these video Q+A's right around the time I first created the group, because I thought they'd be a more engaging way to learn what goes on behind the blog than a simple email and have officially opened them up to my public YouTube channel. My hope is that by opening them up to everyone, they'll serve as a resource accessible to a wider range of bloggers on a bit of a larger scale.

Without further adieu, below you'll find our third video Q+A (to see our first 2, join our Facebook group and search Q+A). I'm sharing my exact brand pitch email (WHY are we so secretive about this guys?!), how I balance blogging with a full-time job, and more!

      You’re so welcome babe! I completely agree – so much benefit in just hearing from others and what their process looks like, even if you’ve been in the industry for a while and have yours down!

    Hi lady,

    Thank you so much for sharing this video with us. If you shoot 2 days out of the month, how many outfits do you take pictures of and how many hours do you spend taking photos?

    YES! Loved this Q&A! Sharing your pitch email was so helpful! I’m so sick of people treating it like it’s a top secret thing or wanting $$ for something so simple… I’m tweaking my pitch right now to include some of the tips you mentioned. Thank you SO MUCH!

    Okay loved this!! I love that you shared your pitch email. Most bloggers keep that top secret, but you’re right that it should be tailored to your specific brand. Thanks girl!

      It boggles me that there’s so much secrecy around it! Mine is constantly changing and improving, as all of ours should be…so why not share?!
