Tip 1: Know Your Worth and Value – Understanding your worth as an influencer is key. Research industry standards, know your engagement rates, and highlight your audience’s demographics. Confidence in your value is your strongest asset.

Tip 2: Be Clear About Your Deliverables – Define what you can offer the brand clearly. From post formats to timelines, clarity ensures a smooth collaboration. Got creative ideas? Share them; they can set you apart.
