    I, and I'm sure many others, would like to promote big businesses (in our niche) on our Instagram accounts. I'm assuming larger companies are interested in long-term relationships on Instagram as well as having a larger budget (as opposed to individuals/small businesses).

    I've connected with one business after one month into the Instagram journey (prob 4K followers). I believe I was lucky. Now that I have a larger account (8K) I reach out to companies more, usually getting ignored or that they've reached their annual quota. I know 8K is nothing.

    I usually DM them on IG and e-mail them via their website or my e-mail client.

    How do you guys usually form relationships with the large companies?

    Do they approach you or are you BHWers using any reliable methods?

    Looking forward to hearing opinions.:)

    What is your definition of a big business?

    Anyway, as an illustrative example, I could be in the bicycle niche. What for me would be a big business is a large international manufacture like Trek. Forget about them with less than a couple of hundreds of k's of followers. What I do is, I reach out to small local businesses - that would be your local bike repair shop. When you send them a proposal, you can also ask to set up a meeting in person, which works great to convince them into your idea.

    Oh, I don't do shoutouts. I make a continuous contract with them for products and cash in return for promoting their services/products on my account.
