It’s as simple as that. But the question is, how to send a submission that gets approved right away?
As an influencer, you have already mastered the creating content and now all you need to do is combine with the brand’s personality. Apart from your creativity, there are certain aspects that can help you make your content stand out and get your submission approved.
- Research about the brand
When you select a campaign to work for, it could be two reasons- you liked their campaign or you liked the brand. Either way, it is necessary to do thorough research about both. You can try to know more about the brand. Dive deep into their history, their origin, values, past marketing campaigns, and learn everything about their product that you can. List down the pros about the brand that you can use to highlight in your campaign. Take a step forward and also research about their target audience. You will have an idea about what kind of content they consume and you can incorporate that into your submission.
- Focus on quality of your deliverables
Your deliverables can vary from writing a blog, a caption, shooting pictures with it or videos. You do not need an extravagant production team to create a good product. But keeping in mind certain attributes like, the language, resolution of the image, the presentation, and editing, these small things can make a large difference. The brands might have other candidates too. But focusing on small but important things like these, can help your submission stand out and increase the chances of getting approved.
- Keep the product in limelight
When working on your deliverables, remember that product is the highlight of the campaign. The brands want an amalgamation of your creativity and their product. As long as you are able to strike that balance, your content has the potential to get selected as soon as they see it. Of course there are chances for revisions and discussions. But when you are making your first impression, keep it crisp and with a mindset to give your best shot. The product needs to be showcased appropriately, every detail that they have mentioned in the brief should come as they expect.
- Follow the instructions given in the brief
Sometimes a lot of brands are specific about details. They even mention them in the brief. So read it carefully. For instance, a brand might restrict you on using certain words or negations, or they might prefer their deliverables in a particular format, so keep an eye for them. If you have any questions or any suggestions, you can always contact them. The instructions are what make the brands specific and when you follow them they know that you have paid attention to details as they requested. And that again raises your chances to become their preference out of the other lot.
- Stick to the timeline
Social media is a place where trends come and go in a negligible time period. So if a brand is looking for a particular timeline or deadline, then it is best to adhere to it. There could be times where brands are on tight deadlines. So it is important that you commit to them only when you know you can accomplish the goal in the desired time. Working with brands will eventually get you into the habit of it. So, if you miss out on any projects because of tight deadlines, do not worry. There will be more opportunities for you.
- Check your grammar and spelling
Grammar and spellings cannot be neglected at any costs. We all know about the trollers who are just waiting for influencers to make one single mistake in their caption to go bizarre on them. And hence, brands themselves are extremely careful about it. Analyze your content one, twice or even thrice if you have to. But be sure of your final deliverables.
- Keep you communication clear
Always be clear about your needs, goals, and services with the brands. Clear communication gets work done faster and it’s easier to maintain the efficiency. You can share your opinions, give your suggestions, and recommend things to them. Clear communication builds understanding and helps you establish an effective management of work. In case of delays in submissions or any help, you can reach out to them and have every conversation available in your WORD Marketplace inbox at all times.
