Primed to Pitch is a 6 hour done-in-a-day coaching accelerator for influencers in the vegan or plant-based niche who are ready to monetize their influence, craft pitches with a proven framework, negotiate with brands, and manage their influencer campaigns.
Many unpaid influencers and content creators make the mistake of thinking that if they just put their energy into growing their following and posting every day, they’ll automatically get paid partnerships…and maybe that’s what you’ve been thinking too.
But you and I both know suggested follower growth strategies such as posting three times a day are exhausting, unsustainable, and they don’t always lead to paid partnerships.
This is why many content creators burn out, resent social media, and end up never satisfied with surpassing follower count milestones.
Despite all their best efforts, they aren’t getting on the radar of brands with budgets and aren’t getting paid.
Brands are not really focusing on follower count because anyone can grow their following. What proof of influence do you have? How is your engagement? Having a smaller following can be seen as a benefit to brands while many influencers think brands see it as a negative.
Posting consistently won’t matter if you’re posting things that don’t lead to paid partnerships or to your own products or services. You need systems in place to get your audience off of social media and onto your email list, signing up for your offers, or getting on the radar of brands.
Sometimes influencers think that just because they post often or go viral that brands will find them and reach out for partnerships. This can and does happen, but are they the right brands? Pitching to the right brands gets you on their radar without hoping one day they find you.
Influencers want to be paid by brands, but the quality of content has to be there before brands will want to pay 4-figures or more for it. Posting low-quality content daily doesn’t mean brands can use it nor will they see the value.
Check out this testimonial from my client Rasheeta Joy. Rasheeta was invited to BlogHer Health and is now a part of SheMedia Publishing Network. She’s worked with brands such as Reebok, Splendid Spoon, The Honey Pot, My Happy Flo, and Athletic Greens.
The same strategies applied to land these partnerships are what you’ll learn during the Primed to Pitch VIP Day.
I’ll share a secret:
I used to dread pitching on behalf of my influencer clients. I cringe thinking about the pitches I sent based on templates that didn’t include important details brands want to know.
During your Primed to Pitch VIP day, we’ll go over my R.A.V.E. Framework that has helped me secure multiple 4-figure partnerships with brands such as Just Egg, The Honey Pot, Raw Sugar, My Happy Flo, and Athletic Greens.

This is where you remind them that they need to take action in order to create a life-changing transformation.
List all the desired outcomes that will be the results of taking this action, itemize each outcome.
I’ve made large investments in the past in programs that promised the world and didn’t deliver. I wasted my money and time. I NEVER want you to feel like that.
You might be on the fence thinking “what if this doesn’t work for me?”
Here’s my promise to you. Suppose you follow my proven framework, apply and implement the strategies, stay committed to the process, and don’t get a full return on your investment in 4 brand partnerships or less, I’ll do a complimentary 60 min strategy session PLUS an additional 60 days of 1:1 Voxer support.
You don’t have to be 100% vegan or plant-based. If you’re not, we can discuss your situation during the compatibility call. You might be in a vertical/niche that I could still help you with.
You can be in the vegan and plant niches health & wellness, vegan / plant-based fitness or coaching, ethical fashion, clean/cruelty-free beauty, sustainable living, vegan lifestyle, etc. I’ve worked with influencers that fall under all these categories.
You’ll first sign up for a 20 min compatibility call. I want to make sure you’re 100% confident that this is for you.
You’ll be sent an invoice and contract if you decide to proceed.
Once the signed contract and paid invoice is received, you’ll be sent a welcome package and pre-work that needs to be completed 72 hours before your VIP Day. Video instructions will be included!
The VIP day is 6 hours done on Saturdays from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm CST. It will be divided into three phases.
Lunch is on me! It will be delivered to you.
After the VIP day, I’ll begin working on the deliverables and you’ll receive access to everything within 5 days after the VIP Day. You will have unlimited access to your private portal which will include the video session from the VIP Day.
Your 1:1 14-day Voxer access will begin after you receive your deliverables.
The VIP Day is an investment of $2,000. A 2 -month payment plan is available. The invoice must be paid in full before you book your VIP Day. There are only four spots available each month.
You will have unlimited access to everything! You can reuse the deliverables and refer back to them as often as you’d like! Your private portal will be on a platform called Membervault, and you’ll be able to access all your materials in one place.
No, however, Primed to Pitch is best suited for nano and micro-influencers that post high-quality content. You can get a paid brand deal with any follower size but, Primed to Pitch is designed to help influencers get 4-figure partnerships. It’s harder to do that with a smaller following, but not impossible if you know how to create exceptional content.
No. We’ll go over which platforms will be the best fit for you. I recommend getting well versed on one platform before you add on others. The benefit of being on more than one is that you can bundle up packages for higher rates. It also helps increase your visibility.
I experienced the same thing and what we won’t be doing is using templates.
Primed to Pitch is more than just teaching you how to pitch. You’ll be getting a strategy for your content as well.
I’ll be teaching you the anatomy of a well-crafted pitch, including the pitches that led to my clients landing 4-figure brand deals and repeat partnerships.
Part of the Primed to Pitch VIP day (Phase 1) will teach you how to set yourself apart from other influencers and content creators. We’ll be approaching pitching the same way.
Brand contacts are swamped with plenty of the same templated pitches. Yours will be different.
Although templates can help you save time, I encourage you to use my R.A.V.E. Framework to get the best results.
It depends. If you’re expecting overnight success, this program isn’t for you.
We’ll be doing a content audit and you may need to improve the quality *before* you start pitching to brands. That might take some time.
If your content is already up to par, you could land paid partnerships within the first month. Pitching is something you have to be committed to doing.
Campaigns don’t happen overnight either.
You have to be willing to pitch and post quality content consistently if you want to see results.
No. Primed to Pitch is best suited for influencers who already know the basics of how to create content. Our primary focus will be on a strategy for your reels and other content, not the technical side of creating it. If you’re struggling with the technical side of content creation, I highly recommend investing time in watching tutorials so you can hit the ground running after your VIP Day.
You will get everything within 5 days after your VIP Day. Your 14-day access to 1:1 Voxer support starts the day you get your deliverables.
I can’t guarantee that you’ll immediately get a 4-figure brand deal. No one can.
Your rates depend on the brand’s budget, your follower count, quality of your content, terms of the contract, your analytics, and the deliverables.
I can promise you that you’ll learn how to get the highest rate for any campaign you’re a part of based on your analytics.
Suppose you follow my proven framework, implement, stay committed to the process, and still don’t get any brand partnerships within six months, I’ll do a complimentary 60 min strategy session and you’ll have an additional 60 days of 1:1 Voxer support.
No. Before signing up for a VIP Day, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions. Book a compatibility call if you’re ready to sign up but still have more questions before proceeding. I want you to be 100% certain that this is the best program for you!
