How to Approach Brands for Collaboration & My Collaboration List

Hello Every one
Today I am going to Share a Secret :-)
As I am being asked so many times from fellow bloggers specially newbies that " How to Get Collaboration from Brands " , So thought of writing this post ,which will help others :-)

My blog is around  2 years old , when I started blogging  I had no idea about Collaborations.
I used to review products that I had brought from my own money and some which I had won in Giveaways and I used to participate in various blogging activities & contests to keep my work going on .
After six months of blogging , I slowly learned how other bloggers are collaborating with brands and how are they getting works , It was a Self  Learn one as at that point of time , I was not having any blogger friend or Guide to help me , Simply by following others blog , reading their reviews I got to know that Collaboration happens :-)
The First Brand I approached was  Sheer Skinz .
I approached them on their Facebook Page and wrote that I am interested in trying & reviewing their product . I was not even sure that they would respond to my message but they did :-)
They checked my blog and then asked me My Postal Address :-)
That was my first Win :-)
After 3-4 days I got their Parcel , a Huge Hamper of some 8 products .
I was delighted and was so happy that I shared it's Pic with every one :-)
All the product were too good and I reviewed them all on my blog .
That gave me confidence & courage that Yes I can write well and then I started approaching some more brands on facebook and got many more Collaborations .

To get Collaboration from brands follow few things :

1. Write your post/ reviews well .
Either it's a Collaboration or review of your own  , write your post well so that it creates a good impression on brands , with some good images we can make it more readable .
2.Write Honest Reviews
Always try to write honest reviews and give a true feedback , this also creates a good impression among readers & brands .
3. Increase your Social Media Followers .
When brands are sending products for reviews to bloggers it's a Kind of Barter , Products for posts .
And brand always look for maximum exposure or promotion of their products and  brand name , so more followers you have , better it is for your blogging carrier .
4. Approach brands on their social media handles like facebook , Instagram , this is the easiest way to approach brands , If  they are satisfied with your blog & writing skills they would definitely revert back .
5. On Facebook  there are many blogger groups where we can find blogging assignments from brands & their PR's , so join such groups to keep updated about latest collaborations .
6. Keep an eye on other's  blog :-)   I mean Follow fellow bloggers blog to know what they are doing :-) This way we can know with which brands they have collaborated and we can also try there .

Now I would Share my Collaboration list :

I have collaborated with many Indian & few International Brands , here I am listing all :-)

In case of International Collaborations , the only problem is one has to wait too long to get the products , it might take up to a month's time to get product from these sites .
Many such sites have Blogger programs where in one can get products for posts .

So this is what I have done in past two years :-)
