You might not know how to sing, but by the end of this article, you’ll be pitch-perfect. When you’ve found a brand that catches your eye, use these tips to submit the perfect pitch.
You’ve found a great brand on #gifted and you want to collaborate. That’s a great start. Now you need to catch their eye and make yourself the obvious choice for a contra gifting collaboration.
So, how do you catch their eye?
Wait, don’t answer that question (we’ve already answered it for you). Read on to learn how to write the perfect pitch on #gifted.
Let the brand know exactly what you can offer in exchange for their product or service.
For example, you may take incredible photos so you feel comfortable pitching 1 x In-feed Instagram post plus 1 x Amazon review. Or, you might be a pro when it comes to video content and decide to pitch 1 x TikTok video and 2 x Instagram stories with a swipe up. Be clear on the exact output you’re offering so your favourite brands can make informed choices based on your strengths.

Keep your pitch around 3 to 4 sentences at most.
Length isn’t strength when a brand is comparing applicants, so make your #gifted pitch an elevator pitch. That means it should be quick and easy for brands to see why you’re the right influencer to collab with without having to read through a novel to learn why.
Brands want to know that the influencers they partner with can help drive interest, clicks, and sales. So tell brands why you (and your audience) are a great match for their goals.
Niche metrics can help you land more successful collaborations, so focus on what makes you the best collab partner. For example, if you’re pitching to a makeup brand, try telling them that over 70% of your followers are female. Or, if you’ve got your eye on an activewear brand, let them know you’re a full-time personal trainer too!
It’s not enough to just *want* to collab, you’ve got to convince brands that you’re a natural fit.

Pitching to brands is a skill that takes practice. Remember to keep your approach short and sweet and stay focused on what you can do for a brand (rather than how much you love the brand).
Here are a few example pitches to use as inspo:
EXAMPLE PITCH #1
“Hi Bailey Nelson! I’m heading off on holiday to Ibiza and would love to snap some great content of your sunnies on the beautiful white beaches while I'm there. I can provide 1 x In-feed post on Instagram and 1 x TikTok video, as well as a written review on your website. Thanks!”
EXAMPLE PITCH #2
“Hi ModelCo! I’d love to try your new foundation, and my follower base is 65% female and 75% Australia-based. I would love to do 3 x Instagram stories with swipe-up links, and a blog on my website which is all about affordable beauty. Thanks!”
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
