JUST A FEW OF THE BRANDS I'VE WORKED WITH
Now you might have seen influencers get paid brand deals without 10k followers, the question is HOW???
You're scrolling on Instagram or TikTok and see #sponsored or gifted or Paid Partnership tags and you're wondering how that happened and how it all works. You haven't seen it? Open up the app and search the hashtags, you'll find them.
Maybe you're getting weird comments for collabs and DMs from accounts that don't look legit asking you to be an "ambassador" or to buy the products before you get reimbursed.
Or maybe you're getting a lot of free products and offers to be an affiliate and you're wondering when this is going to turn into actual CASH.
Here's the real problem:
Influencer marketing is still a fairly new industry meaning there's no actual standards or regulations in place like "minimum wage" so brands are going to try to get free content and promotion because it's better for their bottom line.
Some brands don't even understand how influencer marketing works and sometimes YOU have to educate them on it.
Until you present yourself and your services effectively, you're bound to get stuck with discount codes, free product and NOT getting paid for your time and effort.
I get it. You're tired of NOT getting paid for your work.
Let's face it: Content creation takes time and effort.
You're the producer, director, model, hair and makeup stylist, photographer (or Insta-partner, friend, or tripod), editor, social media manager, etc. and these brands are making a PROFIT when you promote them to your audience.
These brands are most likely paying for advertising on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Google, hiring production companies for THOUSANDS of dollars (I've seen it!) yet they refuse to pay influencers to create content and promote them on their channels.
Yes, you might do some unpaid collabs in the beginning and choose to work with some brands for free BUT if you're doing this as a business and want to do this full-time...
Then this has GOT. TO. STOP.
Here's the truth: Brands are looking to work with creators & influencers of all sizes...
Because they have a built-in, engaged audience
Because they have an audience that knows, likes and trusts them
Because they are an all-in-one production company
Because businesses are seeing a 6x ROI (return on investment) in influencer marketing
And let's face it...because they can't all afford to work with the Kims, Kylies, and celebrities of the internet/worldYES, I WANT TO GET PAID BRAND DEALS!

Meet your coach, Gwen Lane!
I started my lifestyle and travel blog in 2015 before influencer marketing was even a thing and before Instagram & TikTok even existed.
I have over 12+ years of experience in the entertainment industry and I've worked with the biggest brands out there like Disney, Facebook, Google, American Airlines, Target, Starbucks, Capital One and more!
I soon realized that I needed a strategy to charge higher rates to become a full-time creator. I developed a proven framework to attract, pitch, negotiate, and secure four and five-figure deals with premium brands.
With my unique experience on the brand side and as a content creator, I'm passionate about helping other creators get paid for their work (I've seen firsthand what those budgets are like!)
