How To Get Media Invites As A Blogger

@itsbobbiesworld on Twitter wants to know what the best way is for a blogger to get invited to local events. There are 3 things to focus on when you’re trying to get media invites.

[bctt tweet="The best way to get media invites as a blogger? Reach out, research & network."]


  • Reach out to local PR companies and send a quick blurb. That way you’re able to let them know that you’re in the city.
  • Keep it short and simple.


  • Research everything. Find out where bloggers in your local area are going.
  • If you’re a style blogger, look at boutiques and see what they have going on.
  • Also look up what events have happened in the past so that you know how to get on the list for the future.


  • Get out and let people know who you are and what it is that you do.
  • Pass out your business card, and give people your social media information.
  • See if you’re able to join a specific network or blogger group.
  • This is the best way to get your information organically.
