There is some really good advice in this network and all over the Internet, but no one has really answered the one main question that I have.
How long should I wait before I start directly contacting companies?
I have permission to do a giveaway from House Party with a few of my left over Febreze products and have a book coming from booksneeze.com to review. In addition, I will have a review of some mineral makeup products from an Etsy shop once I receive and review them.
However, I was wondering how long people waited before they because direct contacting and pitching to companies. My blog is new, but I did purchase a custom design that I think is great, to give it a professional feel. I do not have that many followers, but I am working on that and site traffic daily. I just do not want to make a fool out of myself by contacting companies only to have them laugh at me because of my stats.
If you started contacting companies early on, any advice on how to pitch and highlight your other skills and not just focus on stats? Thanks in advance for any help.
