There are Facebook groups for connecting small businesses and bloggers. Why is b-directory a better option for me?
For lots of reasons! Firstly, our member directory makes it easy to either find someone, or be seen – no spending hours searching through a Facebook group feed! Our jobs board is also super easy to navigate, and you won’t be lost in the noise – easily filter and search for relevant opportunities – view only what suits you, when it suits you.
We use our social media to promote our member businesses and blogs, so not only do you benefit from the partnerships you form – you benefit from social media shares too.
Finally, our community is full of like minded people who support each other – everyone can learn, grow, connect and have fun along the way.
I can’t find a member who matches my brand - can you help me further? Or I can’t find brand who matches my blog/interests, can you help me further?
Absolutely. We will happily seek out and approach anyone we think might benefit from a partnership with you.
What is the difference between Influencer, blogger, brand ambassador, advocate etc?
Let’s start with their similarities – anyone working with your business is partnering with you to help promote your brand, by sharing your products or services with their audience.
My Facebook followers are under 1,000 - no agencies will even speak to me! How can b-directory help?
One of our main goals is to educate small businesses on how beneficial working with a small blogger can be. We will do this via social proof and maintaining a constant message supporting this through all our training and education materials.
Do you have tips for maintaining a good relationship with a fellow member I'm working with?
We sure do. Be transparent, honest and work together to ensure a successful outcome. Respect each others strengths. Share your results. And above all else, be nice humans!
Is there anything to be wary of?
We do our best to ensure all our members are genuine, respectful and fair – but naturally sometimes things can go astray. Be sure to set clear intentions from the outset of any agreements and be comfortable with the exchange. If something doesn’t seem right, or you start to feel unsure – please contact us and we will endeavour to get to the bottom of it.
I'm a newbie blogger - what value could I add to anyone?
Lots! Even if you have a small audience, they are your audience and are waiting to hear what you have to say. Partner with the right small business (one who suits your followers!) and you can share their brand with your loyal fans. Who knows what will come of it!
I've registered with Source Bottle already - how is this different?
In lots of ways – at b-directory our members can view each others profiles and get to know other before committing. We have a more personalised approach and can help you find the right partnerships, rather than just placing an ad and waiting for replies, then spending hours reviewing them. We are also more specific to small business, bloggers and influencers – rather than journalists and PR agencies.
I have a small business but have never used a social media platform to market - it freaks me out! Where do I even start?
Ooh great, newbies are a favorite and teaching the basics is what we do best. We can take a full assessment on exactly where you’re at in your business journey, even if it’s the start, and personally tailor our tips and training specifically for your needs.
What on earth is a jobs board?
This is our favorite feature on the site. It’s a place for you to either advertise or seek opportunities to the other members. It allows the businesses that might be a bit shy about entering into a partnership to browse what’s on offer with all the info being completely transparent. E.g –
FOOD BLOGGER SEEKING – Cafes in the Perth western suburbs to partner with for the month of July. I am offering a sponsored post with links to your site and 6 posts across all my social media channels for just $150. Message me if your interested.
You can only post an advert ONCE a month but you can respond to as many ads as you like.
