How To Email PR Agencies/Request Review Products

How To Email PR Agencies/Request Review Products

So I’m seeing lots of people that are wanting the pleasure to be able to receive products from companies for review either on there blog or youtube channels and the majority of these people seem to be messaging in the wrong way or tweeting in the wrong way so I’m here on hand with some useful tips that will hopefully help you with the way you contact PR Agencies or request from companies direct.
Just as a disclaimer before you read this post I’m not claiming that I’m and expert I’m just sharing common sense tips that hopefully will help.

  1. Give details on the views that your Blog/YouTube Channel or both gets on a daily and monthly basis ( Screenshots of googleanalytics are useful)
  2. Keep the email brief but give enough information so that you can get across who you are & what you do
  3. Explain that by going with your review request what you can offer them that maybe someone else can’t and also try be unique what separates you from everyone else
  4. Tell them all of your social credentials and where they can find you online just so they have some idea of the following you have i.e. twitter/youtube/bloglovin/facebook/instagram.
  5. Let them know what you plan on doing with the product after the review if they want it back then promise to return it or see if they wouldn’t mind you keeping it for yourself or even for a giveaway video or post

What do I blog & vlog about ?

What do I blog & vlog about ?

So I’ve been wondering for sometime what I should be blogging & blog about I think my main problem is I want to try and please everyone but I think I want my blog & youtube channel to be my place on the internet that can I post what I like when I like.

What content can you expect from my blog & YouTube channel?
Tech Content
My Photography Work/Photography Related Content
Men’s Fashion
Men’s Beauty & Hair ( possibly )
Random Vlogs
Lifestyle Stuff
Current events & news stories that interest or annoy me

I think we get the gist that I’m posting about what ever I like and I do hope that some of these subjects interest you I’m going to try and cater for everyone and i don’t really know where this posting is now going as i seem like I’m rambling on but what i really wanted to say is that ti have no set agenda with my blog and no set schedule so there maybe times when there are no post and times when there are 50 a day.
This is a personal blog I’m just a one man band and I’m not a brand with tonnes of cash that I’m plowing into my blogging/vlogging for me this is a hobby and want to thank everyone who is supporting me with this.
