How do you partner with an influencer for dropshipping?
If you have finally found the influencer who perfectly matches your expectations and needs, all that remains is to establish a partnership. But before you do, you should also consider the different forms of partnership that are possible. These can be simple product placements, participation in an event, production of content for the brand, ambassador-type collaboration or recurring partnerships.
Contact the influencer directly
Once you have made your choice and the type of partnership you wish to undertake with the influencer for your dropshipping shop. You can start by contacting the dropshipping influencer directly. This can be done by email or by phone. You can tell them about your project and see if they agree with your ideas or not.
You should be aware that good influencers are often oversolicited. So think about getting their attention before you contact them. There are many ways to get their attention. For example, you can leave an important comment on their posts. You can also bounce off an issue that the host is complaining about publicly. Once you have been noticed by the influencer, the exchange can be much easier than with direct contact.
Invite him for an interview
You should know that dropshipping influencers feel a certain pride in the posts and everything they have achieved. So, by offering them an interview, you give them an opportunity to talk about their entire journey. On the other hand, you will know exactly what the person is like and decide if they are a good fit for your business or not. To make sure that everything goes exactly as you want it to, remember to prepare the questions beforehand.
Seek advice from the influencer
To get off to a good start and start building a relationship with the influencer, you can ask for advice. And to make it work, make sure that the question you are going to ask is not one that they have already answered. Be original as your main objective is to get their attention in addition to the valuable advice you have asked for. As you can see, finding a dropshipping influencer and establishing a partnership is not as easy as it sounds.
