Have you identified a list of bloggers that would be interested in what it is that your campaign is all about? You really should. Blogs are a great way of accessing people with similar interests to yours. Start by doing a Google search using “Blogs + a key word that relates to your industry” and you will be surprised at what you discover! Remember that bloggers are people like you…so when you approach them to talk about your campaign on FundedByMe, keep your email personal, short and informative.
Remember to include the following:
– Your elevator pitch, explaining what your brand does
– Add a good photo that would entice them to share it with their readers
– If you have a video, include a link to that
– Add a link to your campaign on FundedByMe
It’s okay to ask them to help you share awareness around your project! If you’re nice enough, most bloggers will be happy to help. But never spam a blogger! If they don’t reply, accept it and move on to another. Good luck!
