My recommendation is to have a website that has strong SEO so retailers/brands can find you. I also recommend looking for your target business through Instagram. When you contact the brand, make sure you have your readership and all your blog stats ready. It also helps to have an IG page with a lot of followers and a lot of followers who comment. You may also offer a combination blog and IG post to sweeten the deal.
