My best advice is if you’re looking to collab with larger brands if you already own the item post it to your social media as an organic post. These posts go far! You’ll be surprised who’s looking at your social media posts.
Also, don’t be afraid to ask! I wanted to stay at a resort so bad and I couldn’t get in the weekend I was going to be in town. So… I used social media and found the resort manager on Linkedin and asked him if he’d be able to get my family and me into the resort… He agreed and ended up giving me a discount! We’re in a time where social media is the new marketing, use it to your best advantage!
