Pitching & (Politely) Persisting the Ultimate Brand Partnerships

  Enroll in Course

Two weeks after finishing BossPitch, Sarah earned an extra $100.

Cara saw results immediately - as soon as she started pitching - and increased her rates by 50%.

Chelsie doubled her rates.

Erin doubled her rates, too.

Summer tripled her rates.

Taylor 4x’ed her sponsored rate and made more via blogging than in her job, tripling her monthly income.

This is what BossPitch does - it helps amazing bloggers just like you take your blog income and opportunities into your OWN hands, making more money, booking more deals, and feeling more confident while doing what you lovelovelove every single day.

I know where you're coming from. I know, because I've been there.

I used to feel invisible online.

I was sick of working my BUTT off to create killer content, but still getting email after email trying to get me to work for less than my rates (or, heck, for free).

And I could not find ANYTHING online that taught actual steps to take to change my situation - to go from overworked, underpayed, and invisible to brands, to getting paid my WORTH (and *knowing* my worth!), negotiating like a boss, and booking deals day in and day out to make up a full time income from my blog.

After nearly 4 years, I figured it out.

SO, I created BossPitch: Pitching & (Politely) Persisting the Ultimate Brand Partnerships.

BossPitch is THE gamechanger for bloggers and entrepreneurs wanting to collaborate with brands.

It's the most comprehensive teaching online today to walk bloggers through brand collaborations from start to finish.

BossPitch will optimize your content for sponsored partnerships, teach you exactly how to pitch your favorite brand(s), and - most importantly - help you master the art of following up, so that your income + relationships are in YOUR hands.

You'll finish the course with knowledge + understanding that you've NEVER had before, newfound confidence in your blog as a business and bigger paychecks in your pocket.

In my 3.5 years of blogging, I’ve gotten paid to work with brands like Starbucks, Pepsi, Target, Cotton, Allstate, Dove, and Capital One. I have 30x'd my rate for creating sponsored content (yup, 30). I went from blogging between classes in my college dorm room, to living my dream as a full time blogger and influencer. I've never been more confident as a blogger (even with these crazy changing algorithms!), I've been on all-inclusive, all-expense paid trips around the world, and I've gone on to be booked out months in advance for sponsored content at MY rate, .

Today, sending an email doesn’t guarantee a response, and a response doesn’t guarantee a paycheck.

BossPitch uses industry research, tried and true tactics, and dynamic strategy to build your relationships with brands, effectively pitch + persist, and double your rates for sponsored collaborations.

Instead, Erica went on to partner with brands like Starbucks, Pepsi, Cotton, Target, Capital One, and more on paid collaborations. She fell in love with being on the influential side of influencer marketing, and took the leap into full-time entrepreneurship and full time blogging immediately after graduating from Wharton and Penn.

She's most passionate about helping other bloggers recognize their own worth and make it happen for themselves, doing what they lovelovelove.

"Boss Pitch is a MUST-HAVE course for anyone looking to take their blog from a part time hustle to a full-time income. Erica doesn't just break down how to pitch to brands but explains it in a step-by-step formula. Invest in her steps and you'll be collaborating with brands you'd always dreamed of. I secured 2 outstanding brand collaborations within 1 month finishing the course and felt empowered to DOUBLE the asking rate on two other collaborations."

- Kallie, But First Coffee

“I've been blogging for less than a year and charge 4 times the rate of friends with double the readership who have been blogging for 5 years! A lot of that has to do with the confidence gained from Bosspitch and the community around the course. The course really did pay for itself after two sponsored posts and now I continue to see the returns of the investment as limitless. Plus anytime I started to doubt myself or my pricing, it's awesome to be able to hop back in the course, revisit a module, and get a confidence kick in the behind from Erica!”

"BossPitch gave me the confidence to stop working with blogger networks and to take my income into my own hands."

- Chelsie, Hey there, Chelsie

I started my blog in April 2016. I am passionate about writing and marketing and knew that at some point, I wanted to make it my full time career. Around November - December 2016, I was getting REAL good at having companies want to send me product and I was seemingly content with that. Then I realized...I'm worth WAY more than free. My time is worth more, my audience is worth more and I WAS WORTH MORE.
So, when Erica launched BossPitch for the first time, I was ALL IN. I took the course in less than a week and jumped into pitching head first. My results? Pretty incredible.
1. My rates doubled, almost tripled overnight.
2. Companies ACTUALLY started to pay me, HAPPILY.
3. I had made more money in THREE MONTHS than I had made the ENTIRE YEAR of 2016. Let that sink in.

Now, 5 months into 2017, I have TRIPLED my income from last year alone. Tripled. My. Income.
Now, some of that can be attributed to my following/readership/stats in general continually raising, but more than that, I know how to talk to companies and pitch my heart out.
I'm traveling to the Dominican Republic on a press trip in June (thanks to my new-found pitching skills), working with big brand companies, and I quit my 9-5 job. Blogging is my career, and BossPitch was a HUGE part of making that happen.
Take the leap. You will be SO thankful you did. Pinky swear.
- Taylor, Blonde and Ambitious Blog

"BossPitch is in a league of its own and is SUCH an amazing course. I was able to increase my rates, I'm now in constant communication with lots of amazing brands, and BossPitch is what has helped me take my blog from a side-hobby making nothing to a profitable business income.”

- Cara, Kindly Unspoken

“BossPitch has completely changed the way I approach brand partnerships. Prior to taking the course, I wouldn't have had the confidence to reach out to a brand and pitch an idea, nor would I have had the confidence to negotiate to make sure I'm being paid what I'm worth. You can quickly make back your investment from BossPitch by implementing the tips Erica shares! Her pricing guide and template emails on exactly what to say to brands have been invaluable.”

- Erin, Very Erin

Frequently Asked Questions

When do I get to start working through BossPitch, and when does it end?
Class is in session starting on Monday, June 5th, 2017 - right after doors close. It's an entirely self-paced course, so you go at your own speed! Whether you want to binge BossPitch or take the slow n' steady route, it's all up to you.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. BOOM.
#BossPitch is an investment - do I get a refund?
Here's the thing. It's Pitching & (Politely) PERSISTING. Some of my best deals took MONTHS to happen. That's not taking the easy way out - it's the truth! Therefore, because of the nature of the course and content being taught, there won't be refunds. But no worries - some of my best pitches were 11 months start to finish, so if you're slow to see results, IT'S OK - you can (& will) do it!

I just KNOW that BossPitch is the missing piece to your puzzle when it comes to knowing your worth, monetizing your blog, and working with brands. If you're ready to take your blog to the next level and do what you *really* lovelovelove every single day, this is hands down the course + community for you.

I'm so excited to see you in class, BossPitches.
