Influencer collaborations take many shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common, they all came about thanks to a brand collaboration email. Once you’ve done the hard work on identifying which influencers you want to work with, the next challenge is to convince them to partner with your brand. Now, if you’ve done the first part well, you should have a shortlist of influencers who are interested in your industry niche and will be genuinely interested in your products. However, there is no guarantee that they’ll want to work with your brand. That’s why you need to use an influencer brand collaboration email sample from Upfluence!

In this article, we’ll share a collaboration email sample for 3 different types of influencer campaigns. This will allow you to see what an influencer brand collaboration email looks like in practice and give you ideas to create your own. Finally, we’ll share instructions and a checklist so that you’ll know exactly how to write an influencer brand collaboration email for your next campaign.

How do you write a collaboration email?

An influencer collaboration email needs to be clear, engaging and communicate the value of your brand products. Start by introducing your brand, make a connection between the creator’s work and your brand, then make a clear invitation. State what kind of collaboration you’re looking for and what compensation you’ll provide to your influencers.

Here’s an influencer collaboration checklist to help you get started:

  • Brand introduction – What products do you sell? Where is your brand based? What’s the aim of your brand?
  • Influencer connection – What are your shared values? What do you like about their work? Why are they a good fit for your brand?
  • Collaboration invitation – What are your collaboration expectations? What compensation will you offer? Why will their audience be interested in your products?
  • Next steps – Where can they find more information? What does the creator need to do next?

With this checklist in mind, you can use these influencer collaboration email samples to create a collaboration email adapted for your brand.
