    Hello,

    I've never had such an experience before. I contacted a vlogger with the goal of promoting my ecommerce shop, telling that she can choose a product from the site to show up in the next video with and mentioned that she'll receive money also.

    Her response was that she agree.

    I know it's funny but I don't know what my next step should be in the conversation. I overthink it whether a) i should tell right away how much money I can offer her for the first time or b) prompt her to choose a product first and then tell her about the money.

    What do you do in such a situation? o_O

    Keep it extremely simple.

    Tell him your budget, and ask whether it is doable. If yay, offer the product, receive the promotion. If nay, move on or offer some more if you're capable.

    Remember, there could be plenty of reasons for rejecting your offer. Perhaps he/she doesn't want to promote others at all. Could be anything. And not everybody will be humble enough to explain you why they rejected.

    You can tell her either. The point is that you have a clear understanding of what you want her to do and what she would get in return. Ask her if she'd like to have a signed agreement for the deal or just have it as an X deal.

    Prompt to choose the product. Make her invest time into the deal and she'll be less likely to reject your payment offer later. How big is the audience?

    That's what I thought at first also. But then altered the strategy a bit - Decided to continue the conversation by asking her about her next video. She still hasn't responded but the next step would be what i want to achieve, like the technical details of how to conduct the promotion, if it's doable for her then prompt to choose a product and then i'll announce what she can get as payment.

    She get's a minimum of 20k views per a video, sometimes 50k.

    The audience is quite warm to my niche but probably 80% of them are under 18 so i have no idea if it will convert well :>
