How to land a sponsored collaboration with Alibaba
So you have set your eyes on Alibaba to work with? That’s great! Read on how to get in touch with them, and what you actually need to do to land an influencer collaboration with Alibaba
Step 1: Find out if you qualify to work with a brand like Alibaba
To make sure your social media meets Alibaba's standards, start by looking at Alibaba's own social media and the creators they partner with. If these influencers have a bigger following or create superior content, we’d recommend improving your profile before reaching out to the brand. Vimma App is here to help! Your Talent Manager Ava will give you all the tools necessary and guide you through how to improve your profile. Our team is here to support you every step of the way! Once you are confident your profile is a good fit for Alibaba, it is time to move to the next step.
Step 2: Find out how Alibaba works with influencers and creators.
Before you reach out to a brand like Alibaba, doing research is key. Check the brand's website for press, media, or influencer sections. Look on creator platforms for ongoing campaigns you might qualify for. You should also connect with influencers who've worked with Alibaba for advice. Brands often have set ways of working with influencers through agencies and platforms. While researching might take effort, it will increase your chances of landing a deal.
In the Vimma app, you can find this info for most brands. And if we lack the collaboration details, we can reach out to the brand on your behalf. (Download the Vimma on App Store here)
Step 3: Dig up the right contact at Alibaba marketing department
Once you've established that collaboration with Alibaba is a good fit and you've done your research for their existing creator programs and platform opportunities, the next move is finding the right person to reach out to. And we have to be honest - this step might take time, but it's essential for effective communication. Head back to Alibaba's website and scout for an email for bloggers and influencers. If that's not available, look for the brand's influencer marketing manager on LinkedIn. If the right contact seems elusive, try a social media direct message asking for the correct inquiry address. You can also take a shot with the general inquiries email, asking for guidance to the right person!
Step 4: Craft a perfect email and send your Media Kit to Alibaba
Once you've pinpointed the right contact at Alibaba, it's time you write a polished email and assemble your Media Kit. Draft a professional email showcasing your creator strengths and a concise proposal for Alibaba. Include links to your Media Kit and social profiles, and you're ready to hit send! If you're new to brand pitching or lack a Media Kit, we can help you before contacting brands.
