  29. Hi Natalie – First off…the ladies at XXXX wanted to send some love for your style blog…we may or may not use it for inspiration sometimes! Just to introduce you to who we are: XXXX is a beach lifestyle boutique from xxxx, California. Although we do carry the larger surf brands, we like to keep the focus on more up-and-coming contemporary brands. We think our fans would really resonate with your style (especially now that you’ve become part of the Volcom community), and would love to work with you on a curated collection, sweepstakes, or maybe just sending over some product from the site. Xxxx has a large following, so it could be a great opportunity to gain some exposure on both sites. Anyway, let me know what you think, or if you have any ideas/questions/etc. Or if you’d rather, we’d love to send you some apparel from the site – just let us know what resonates with your style. Thanks for your time! <name> An  Okay  Influencer  Pitch    
  30. Hi Natalie. I absolutely love your blog, especially the <insert specific thing>. I’ve got a limited opportunity for style bloggers that I’d like to run past you please. I’m <name>, the Community Manager for XXX, an online beach lifestyle boutique. We’ve been around for 10 years, and have an email list of more than one million customers. We carry the big brands like xxx of course, but also up-and-comers like xxx. Our team at xxx has selected our 9 favorite style bloggers, and of course you made the list. We’d like to send you 3 outfits from our Fall collection. Then after you’ve had a chance to check them out, we’d like to interview you on Skype about which one you like best and why, and then include that video on our Facebook page, where we have 61,000+ fans. It’s a great way to introduce a bunch of new people to <blog name>. We’d like to get the clothes out to you tomorrow, and schedule the video interview on <10 days away>. Can I get your mailing address today please? Also, please let me know if you don’t want to be a part of this program. Thanks! I look forward to working with you. <name> xxxx.com Facebook.com/xxxx A  Be3er  Influencer  Pitch
