    Posted by Stacy Jones on March 28, 2016 at 2:40 PM


    How To Get Your Start-Up Brand Onto The Most Relevant YouTube Channels & Marketing Tips.

    YouTube and other social media stars are their own kind of celebrity - with massive followings they have the ability to directly influence their followers. They're also breaking into the world of Hollywood more and more now.

    While a social influencer endorsement of your brand can work wonders, you have to make sure the influencer him or herself actually likes the brand.  In this post, Hollywood Branded looks at 5 ways you can do as a brand marketer to make your brand appealing to a teenage social media influencer.

    Brand Deals from a Beauty Guru’s Perspective

    While many Youtubers fail to discuss how they actually make Youtube a full time job, one of the most relevant Youtubers of the moment in the beauty community has created a video detailing how brand deals work from a Youtuber’s (and an 18-year-old’s) perspective.  Take a listen to the advice in the video below from Youtuber Megan, of Miss Megan Makeup, who shares “It’s important to not make your channel like a commercial and only work with the companies that you’re like ‘woah, ok, that’s a good one.’”


    Standing Out To Social Influencers

    Below are 5 ways to make your brand stand out to a social media influencer

    1. Choose A Demographic

    Refrain from reaching out to someone who doesn’t match your company’s vibe. Reach out to those you can see genuinely enjoying your product. 

    2. Be Sure To Reach Out To Someone Who You Can See Being Attracted To Your Products Packaging

    When you watch almost any haul a beauty guru does - if the packaging is cute most of the time they will mention that. You will also hear them say, “I wanted to try this just because the packaging is so cute. Try to find Youtubers that will look at your product on a shelve of one hundred other products and still pick yours just from packaging alone. 

    3. Help Them With Video Ideas

    If you want to potentially have them create content other than just a sit down review of your product, include a couple ways they can make the video more interesting when you send them the product information. For instance you can send them a mood board or links to your social media handles. Or offer for them to call you and have a brainstorm session if they’re interested. 

    4. Let Them Know That They Can Give An Honest Review

    As a startup brand - any buzz is good buzz. Whether they like your product or not they still want views on their videos so chances are they will take the time to create relevant content even if the review is negative. You can also gain buyers from their loyal followers even if the review is negative. Viewers may want to try the product out regardless of their review. Somebody that already uses the product or the brand might start conversation on the video and cause debate. 

    5. Give Them Incentive

    Along with their paid placement, create a code for them to have their followers use. For every person that uses their link, give them credit to the store so they can use it and try more of your products.
