What if I told you, you could convert your pageviews and Instagram followers into complimentary hotel stays?!

This can be a controversial topic, partly because anyone can be an influencer these days and many people want things for free. My advice is to overdeliver your part of the agreement. Don’t just ask for a free stay, offer professional photography, a detailed review or inclusion in a SEO article about the destination they are based in.

In this lesson, I will walk you through:

  1. Offer value first, before you ask for something in return
  2. Create a list of hotels with relevant contact information
  3. Contact the hotels
  4. Follow up and contact more hotels
  5. Overdeliver your part of the agreement
