An online firm wanted to blog about me so they asked few questions and I sent back the answers to them but then it never got published. Is there a hashtag for a situation like this? Let me know. So instead I am posting it on my blog (I promise I am not self-obsessed)!
Here are the questions:
- Who are you?
I am Nazish otherwise known as Discover with Nazish (yes, sometimes other bloggers literally call me that). I have been discovering restaurants, cities, and things I love for about a year and a half.
- Do companies approach you or do you approach them and how do interact with them (via social media/in person)?
I personally don’t prefer approaching companies because, at some point, I might feel that I don’t have a voice for any ideas or opinions. Also, you know that they are 100% happy to work with you. Email is the best way to interact or in person but never on social media as it is very informal.
- What attributes do you look for in companies that you choose to represent?
Companies who can accept the truth about their product/services and appreciate the time and energy that takes to create content.
- What type of companies do you avoid or reject offers from?
Anything that I know I won’t enjoy. I don’t want to waste precious time for both the parties and end up writing a negative review.
- Do you always get paid for marketing brands/how do you generate value for the services you provide?
To be honest, I never got paid in terms of money yet. If I ever do, the value would depend on the type of content required.
- Which industry that you’ve partnered with has been you’re best so far?
I mostly collaborate with restaurants and it’s definitely the best (who doesn’t like food?) Moreover, I have recently started partnering with other industries and hospitality is so much fun!
- What advice would you give startup bloggers for expanding the audience and getting noticed?
Just be yourself. People will always appreciate blogs with unique and interesting content.
- What advice would you give companies/brands looking for influencers to market them?
Don’t choose influencers for the sake of their followers. Quality over quantity is what I believe in!
Hope you enjoyed!
