Blogger Outreach Strategies For More Than Digital PR

Done right, Blogger Outreach can deliver so much more.  Brand Meets Blog...

Before You Host A Blogger Event, Read This!

What makes a winning blogger event? Blogger events offer brands an opportunity to activate creatively, influencer networks. However, putting on a blogger event is not the same as a press event, and agencies would be wise to note the difference. I remember the dawn of blogger events in Australia. The year was 2010 and some mummy bloggers were being chauffeured around Sydney in limos, drinking champagne and from the looks of things, having a fabulous time! What stood out to me was that I had to dig around to find out who the hosting brand was,...

Not working with low-traffic blogs? Here’s why you should!

I was recently interviewed by WHSR on how bloggers with low-traffic can work with brands. Today, we have Daniel Slomka flipping the conversation around to share why low-traffic bloggers can make great brand partners.

Friday Faves: On entrepreneurship, failure and the singular power of tenacity.

If you hang around entrepreneurs enough you will start to hear them talking about the importance of “getting back up when you fall down.”. You will actually hear them talk about this a lot! For the first little while it might not make sense…you might wonder what they really mean when they say that. Then the day will come when you have an ‘ah-ha’ moment that brings you such great clarity, and that propels you forward when you most feel like throwing in the towel. Like many entrepreneurs before me, I’ve come...

One Simple Technique that Increases Blogger Outreach Rates to 98% YES!

There’s something, super super simple you can do that will have an instant impact on the number and quality of responses to your blogger outreach pitch.  It’s true! BMB has a 98% response rate when emailing bloggers, and I am convinced that this one tweak is why. (In fact, my response rate is ultimately closer to 100% but I am allowing a 2% difference because no one is perfect!) 98%+ sound good? Would you like to know my secret to ‘pitch perfection”?
