Where to find collaboration and styled shoot opportunities near you
If you’re a brand new business, or a content creator who is looking to boost your reach on social, a styled shoot or collaboration might be a great idea to help. Not only are there a plethora of benefits to collaborating, you can also establish your presence on social with fresh content, and be exposed to new audiences.
Still not convinced? Here are 9 reasons you should collaborate or get involved on a styled shoot for your business
While many small business collaborations are planned as unpaid content creation activities, there is also opportunity for paid collaborations, especially if you are a content creator. As a brand or a small business, you could also choose to engage a creator and pay creators a fee for their services.
But how can you find these opportunities? Here are 6 ideas.
Six ways to find collaboration opportunities near you
1. Reach out to relevant businesses on social media
Look for hashtags in your niche, and study the profiles of the accounts you find. Have they previously participated in collaboration activities? If so, they might be a good fit. Reach out via DM with a compelling email and specific details. Instagram and TikTok seem to be the best platforms for this type of connection.
2. Attend networking events
As with any industry, face-to-face networking events are the best way to meet and make connections with people in your industry, and this type of connection may naturally lead to the generation of collaborative content.
3. Engage with businesses and creators in your niche to see who is collaborating
Like and comment on the post of people in your industry or niche. Make sure you compliment them on their collaborative efforts – chances are they have put a lot of work into it! Don’t forget to reach out and ask if they are considering any more collaborations in the future.
4. Browse influencer directory and platforms
There are many influencer directories and platforms available – a couple in Australia include Tribe and Collabosaurus.
5. Check out Facebook groups
Not only are there likely to be many Facebook groups for your industry or niche, you may even find Facebook groups entirely dedicated to planning collaboration activities. These are easily found by doing a search for the relevant keywords on Facebook.
6. Bookmark Confetti Collab
Confetti Collab will soon become a source to find any kind of collaboration opportunity within the events, party and wedding niche. Whilst the focus will be on styled shoots, there will also be call outs for features, video and audio content and more.
