When I first started blogging it was really just for fun and a personal place to share my mom experiences. It quickly became something much more. I had so many readers chiming in about different issues, brands started to contact me for collaborations and product reviews. It was a whirlwind. Even though I had already been a business owner and built that small brand before, this was completely different. This was my brand and in the early days of blogging we all kind of didn’t know what we were doing or how to move the needle when it came to sponsorships, brand collaborations, marketing.
I loved sharing my family adventures and the little parts of my world with readers but when you’re building a blog and a brand you spend so much time pitching ideas and trying to connect with companies, it can be stressful. Collectively gave me the support I needed and provided me with great partnership opportunities that I probably wouldn’t have gotten on my own. Networks and collectives are a huge part of growing a blog because you have a group of experienced and talented people who know what they’re doing. And now my little blog is a thriving business.
Collectively has been a part of my blogging world for years and I am constantly impressed by the dedication they have to their stable of influencers and clients. They are a savvy and hard-working team that I always feel provides top-tier campaigns and projects for bloggers/influencers. Collectively was one of the first blogger networks I worked with and they opened so many doors for me to work with amazing brands.
They have a unique understanding of brand marketing and the influencer landscape and I trust their team. Collectively has helped me to foster relationships with reputable brands and collaborate on exciting projects with amazing companies like Zappos, Old Navy, Swiss Gear. The Collectively team understands my mission and partners me with other brands that are perfect for family/lifestyle blogs like mine—they just get it.
Being a part of the #collectivelycommunity is what launched my brand to the next level. I am excited to be a part of their incredible network of influencers and celebrate the re-launch of the collectivelyinc.com website. If you are a brand or blogger, I encourage you to visit their site to see all the amazing work they do and the even more amazing people they represent.
