Travel Creators: Let's Talk Brand Deals
To transform your wanderlust into a sustainable career, you’ve got to learn how to land a brand deal. Brands seek authentic storytellers to showcase their products or services in real-world settings, allowing travel creators to align with partners who resonate with their audience. Therefore, monetizing your travel content provides the means to fund travel expenses, elevate content quality, and turn a passion for exploration into a profession.
Here are 5 steps every travel-focused creator should be taking to land their next deal:
1. Stay informed about active deals
Take a look at the most recent partnership opportunities in the fitness industry and familiarize yourself with the kinds of content brands are looking for. July makes this super simple! Just subscribe to our Brands with Budgets email to get updates about brands actively searching for content like yours.
2. Get your Media Kit looking sharp
Selling yourself can be hard. And designing a media kit can be even harder. But guess what? As soon as you create a free July account and link your socials… we automatically do all that for you! Check out some real examples of our users’ beautiful media kits.
3. Set your rates
How much should you even charge for a brand deal? It’d be great if there was some hard data to show you what to charge. Don’t worry - we offer it for free: use our rate calculator to estimate the value of your social channels.
4. Start pitching brands
Once you create a free July account our AI goes to work matching you with brands based on your social media content. You’ll see a match percentage next to each brand campaign. Then, you’re one button away from contacting that brand’s partnerships department; just press “Pitch.”
5. Keep pitching… A LOT
It usually takes lots of pitching in order to start hearing back from brands and eventually landing deals. While it’s fun to hand-pick the brands you want to contact on July, why not let AI do it for you automatically? Consider enabling our automatic pitching feature, which will send customized pitches on your behalf to every high-probability match the second they drop.
Now that you’ve bought a one-way ticket to land your next deal, check out July’s suite of creator tools, all designed to find you partnership opportunities and get you paid!
