Connect with brands looking for influential bloggers just like you

Do you dream of picking up a killer blog deal that makes the time you spend writing a blog post worth the 32 drafts?

Well I have some of the most exciting news to hit blog land today: Bloglovin debuted its influencer network, Activate. Yup, it’s time to roll out the red carpet and get noticed by brands looking for bloggers. This spotlight opportunity hasn’t even been up for 24 hours – so now is the time to join – while brands are clambering to meet bloggers like you, and before everyone + their mom signs up. Plus it’s free to join, so why not get noticed for your time?

{Just a heads up that this blog contains affiliate links here and there, which cost you nothing but could result in a monetary benefit for SBG. Thanks again for keeping this blog going. Gracias.}

Get in on Bloglovin’s new influencer network for bloggers (it’s free)

There are plenty of reasons bloggers and small businesses want to become known as an influencer within their online community. It can lead to new opportunities to get your message into the hands of people who need it, share your latest products and services with a wider range of blog readers, and increase the quality of your own personal network. You never know if meeting the right brand will be a 1-off deal, or lead to something bigger. If you don’t put yourself out there once in a while, you might miss your next big break.

 

Sign up for the Bloglovin influencer network in 2 steps:

  1. Join the Bloglovin influencer network for free

  2. To verify, confirm your blog –or- connect your Twitter account

 

That’s it. Pour yourself a swirling glass of chardon-yay while you sit back and let the geniuses at Bloglovin work their magic to match you with brands looking for quality bloggers.

It’s no fun to be the last one to the party (the snacks are usually gone)

You can end the missed-opportunity-cycle today. If it helps, set a goal to sign up and then treat yourself to a celebratory piece of chocolate, a walk outside in the fresh air, or a smancy frothy coffee that hits the spot. Just hop over to Bloglovin’s new site to get noticed by brands looking for bloggers.

 


 

Q+A

Do I have an influencer blog? Do I have enough blog readers to join?

If you’re not sure whether or not your blog qualifies as large enough to be an “influencer blog”, you don’t have to go crazy boosting all your numbers. Even if your last blog post had 2 comments, you can sign up. Where your blog is today is enough. The point of forming a blog “network” is to get a bunch of smaller, specific and niche blogs to collectively reach thousands of readers. Instead of going after one large blogger with 20k readers a day, brands prefer to connect with a blog influencer network to leverage smaller blogs to equal those same 20k readers a day. So maybe your blog alone isn’t enough to get a big brand to notice you, but as part of the Activate network, you are more than enough.

I’ve never been part of an influencer network – can I join?

If you’ve never been part of an influencer network, don’t fret. The upfront work is about 5-10 minutes, then you’re pretty much off the hook until they find the right brand for your blog. They’ll shoot you an email when brands want to reach out to you. Either way, it’s worth getting on Bloglovin to claim your blog. That’s the only pre-requisite. It’s free, anyways, so what are you waiting for? Become an influencer with your blog today.

Should I wait to join the Bloglovin influencer network?

Um, if I thought you should wait to join, I probably should have eaten dinner by now (it’s 8:50pm). I expedited this post because there is no time like the present. Especially when it comes to launches. From my experience in real-life marketing (the type where I’m given a salary + expense card), an established brand launching a new product would only do so if they are ready with new brands demanding the product. I wouldn’t go to sleep on this. I suspect they have brands lined up to work with bloggers right away. It’s been less than 24 hours and bloggers of all sizes and types have already started to claim their spot. Don’t get left in the dust.

The short list of things I regret doing too late: 

  • Starting my blog years after I thought I was ready.
  • Joining Instagram later than I should have.
  • Moving to San Francisco after it was already declared the most expensive city in the country (yup, SF is pricier than NYC).

When you decide to make a blog that is also a business, you make yourself available for new opportunities. Boom. Being productive feels so good.

If brands haven’t come crawling to your blog, this could be your once-in-a-blog-time opportunity to roll out the red carpet and welcome brands to your online doorstep. Form relationships. Get noticed.

Your future blog success might depend on it.

If you wish you started your blog years earlier, or you stalled to get going with Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest, here’s your little kick in the butt: get your blog noticed by brands – claim your site now >>[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

In the comments: how can I follow YOU on Bloglovin?

Once you join the Bloglovin Activate influencer network, share your Bloglovin link in the comments so I can follow your blog. If I already follow you, feel free to share a blog influencer tip instead. The community would love to hear.
