Brand sponsorship request
Here’s the starting point for a message Latasha James used to secure a brand sponsorship deal.
I hope you are doing well!
I’ve really valued our partnership over the past year or so, and have heard a ton of great feedback from my audience about their experience with
BRAND, as well.
I am currently preparing to launch the third round of my twice sold-out Social Media Management Accelerator program and wanted to touch base to see if you were open to additional partnership opportunities.
The 8-week accelerator program sees up to 200 dedicated freelance social media managers each round and finishes off with a pitch competition streamed live to my YouTube channel. We like to reward our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners with some real-life prizes and thought a
BRAND license would be an excellent fit for one or all of the winners. Is that something you would be open to sponsoring?
In addition to placement on the landing page, I’m also happy to offer a video podcast read promoting
BRAND, as well as a dedicated lesson within the course content on using the tool itself.
Let me know if this is something you’d be interested in exploring — happy to hop on a quick call to discuss further!
My best, Latasha

TOPIC, just let me know.
A couple things to note:
- This works because it’s short, sincere, and personalized
- The message should be timely - spamming all your followers with a similar invitation wouldn’t make any sense. Send this within a day or two after someone follows you
