Writing an email to an influencer

This step outlines the requirements for the peer-graded assignment.
Now that you have learned about engaging influencers in your marketing campaign, you are encouraged to submit an example email to an influencer for a brand or product of your choice, for peer grading.

Assignment requirements

Select an influencer for a brand or product of your choice, and write the copy for an example email, making sure it contains all of the following points:

  • A brief explanation of the campaign concept
  • Social platforms and formats you’ll utilise
  • Why this partnership is a good fit for your brand and the influencer
  • Timelines for delivery and publishing
  • Compensation terms
  • Media value in your ad or editorial inventory
  • Inclusion in press materials, packaging or other collateral.

Keep your email brief and straight to the point. On the next step, you will submit your email by filling in boxes after each prompt.
