Creating Brand Partnerships and Sponsorships
A free course for content creators on how to build relationships with brands
When we first started blogging in 2011, we never thought it would become a business. And in 2014 when we decided to film a documentary about traveling to all 50 states in an RV, we never thought someone would want to sponsor it.
But both of those things happened.
Fast forward to 2020 and 25% of our blog income is from sponsorships with big brands.
We've worked with companies like Winnebago, Camping World, Go RVing, Jellystone Parks, Harvest Hosts, weBoost, Passport America, Outdoorsy, and more. These companies have sponsored our podcast and our annual conference, The RV Entrepreneur Summit. We've written blog posts and filmed videos together.
In this 100% free course, I share four lessons on how fellow content creators can build lasting relationships with brands.
Plus, I sorted through 200 episodes of the RV Entrepreneur Podcast to find a few interviews with other bloggers and entrepreneurs focused on the topic of brand partnerships. You can find those under the Bonus Content section!
