Even for influencers that have been in the game for a while, getting consistent brand deals is...hard. Not knowing how much money you're going to make from one month to the next can be one of the most stressful parts of earning a living from social media.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
In fact, that uneasy feeling can be traced to something very specific...
So I bet what you really want to know is...
Before we get any further, I want to share a story with you.
About 10 years ago, April and I were living in Southern California and this was before we were married, before we had kids...at that time we just had our three cats.
We had been slowly growing our YouTube channels to about 35K followers and making some nice side income here and there to supplement our day jobs.
April came running into the bedroom (I'll never forget this) and said, "Look at this email! What do we do?"
It was from a very well-known brand asking our rates. Rates? We were confused. We were used to just getting a bunch of free products in exchange for posts.
You mean, this brand actually wants to PAY us to talk about them on social media?!
That was the moment that our lives changed forever.
We realized that there was absolutely no limit to how much money you could make as a creator.
We realized that there was nothing preventing us from reaching out to brands *ourselves* and pitching unique partnerships.
But most importantly, we realized just how much money you could make from sponsorships.
Way more than Adsense.
Way more than Affiliates.
WAY more, in fact, than my 9-5 job which I quit six weeks after our first son was born! 🙃
But that's not all...
I also own an influencer marketing agency that runs paid campaigns for brands.
Why does that matter?
I have insider knowledge behind how big brands choose which influencers to partner with and why they pass on others.
Over the course of the next 4 weeks, I'm going to teach you how these brands think so that you can get "unblocked" and make them desperate to work with you.
Get more confident when you interact with brands so that you don't mess anything up, say the wrong thing, and scare them away?
Negotiate more money for each sponsorship so that you never wonder whether your rates for whitelisting, usage rights, or exclusivity are accurate?
Secure longer-term partnerships so that your one-off deals turn into well-paying, ongoing collaborations?
Pitch more effectively so that brands actually answer your emails and DMs (AND offer to pay you)?
Connect with other business-minded creators who can offer support and guidance so that you never feel alone or confused about how to handle unique or difficult situations with brands?
Get organized and track all the small details from every brand deal so that you eliminate unnecessary re-shoots, never miss a deadline, and get that money in your bank account ASAP?
You've applied for campaigns on all the brand deal platforms, sometimes successfully, sometimes...not so much.
You've DMed the brand on Instagram or went to their website and emailed "PR@brand.com" crossing your fingers that someone would eventually get back to you.
You've literally made up rates out of thin air when brands asked for usage rights, whitelisting, or exclusivity...silently praying that you weren't low-balling yourself.
But I think you know deep down that there must be a better, smarter way to pitch brands & negotiate.

“There were several times during the sessions that our mouths literally dropped at the strategies that Justin was teaching us! From networking and reaching out to brands, to negotiation and making sure the brands keep coming back for more... his course covers it all and you will leave with strategies that you can implement today to land you brand deals with companies that you love, for MORE money! Brand Deal Wizard is 100% worth the investment!”
“Justin provided so much insight on strategic planning, getting brand deals, and what I found to be the most important: sustaining relationships with brands. The Zoom classes were interactive, highly engaging, with a diverse community of creators. Justin is a terrific leader, not just a teacher. He’s very passionate, funny, and encouraging. This program is about understanding your worth and getting paid for it! I highly recommend it!”
“This is not a template course that you just purchase and you’re left with a ton of questions. It’s interactive and you’re going to be guided through the whole way. You’re going to be so mind-blown. The information you’re going to receive…you don’t find anywhere else. If you are a little lost or if this is a goal you’ve had for a long time, you owe it to yourself to take this course.”
Soon, your creator friends are going to start DMing you non-stop asking you "How the heck have you been getting all those deals lately?!"
If that sounds annoying to you...well, this program probably isn't a good fit. 😉

I see influencers investing in things like new camera equipment, new phones, new editing software - don't get me wrong - all of those things can absolutely improve the quality of your content.
But if you want to improve the quality of those *sponsorship checks,* you need to be investing in your knowledge!
The total value of the course is $20,000+
But your investment is...
Attend Zoom classes for 4 weeks (or watch the replays if you can't join live)
Step 2. (Optional)
Attend weekly Office Hours to get all your questions answered
MORE Brands, Opportunities, and Money!
Why is this so ridiculously inexpensive?
Because let's face it...even ONE high-paying sponsorship will get you a massive return on your investment in this program.
But here's the thing...
I believe that landing dream brand partnerships shouldn't be restricted to just a few "well-connected" influencers.
Every influencer CAN secure lucrative brand deals with complete confidence.
There are TWO big reasons why I'm offering this program at a fraction of what it costs to work with me one-on-one:
Reason 1: This is an invitation to become part of an exclusive, growing community of creators that are serious about transforming their earning potential. I'm going to teach you a ton but learning from others' experiences is often when things finally "click." Your investment to join Brand Deal Wizard right now guarantees you've got a front-row seat to propel you along your path to success.
Reason 2: It enables me to live my mission of helping creators big and small land 1,000,000 sponsorships by 2032.
So, yes, it's a WIN-WIN.
Do you have a monthly payment plan option?
Absolutely! Scroll back up to the "Investment" section to read more about the monthly installment option.
Will I actually get results? Why should I *really* invest in this?
My wife April and I have personally made over $4,000,000 in brand deal income using the strategies I teach in Brand Deal Wizard (like the Sponsorship Wheel framework) and it WILL work for you too if you're willing to put in the work. I also coach influencers 1-1 using these same principles and have achieved *incredible* results (scroll back up to check out some of the testimonials). To set crystal clear expectations, please read the earnings disclaimer at the bottom of this page.
What if I've only done posts in exchange for free product and haven't done a *paid* brand deal yet, is this right for me?
Brand Deal Wizard is an intermediate course for influencers that have experience doing paid sponsorships. I will be releasing a separate program called "Gifted to Paid" in the future, so click here to stay updated!
I think I make pretty good money on my own already, how will this program help me?
If you're satisfied with the income you're making, are getting consistent brand deals, know for a fact you're charging the right amount, and feel confident nothing will derail your earning potential in the future, perhaps this program isn't for you. Brand Deal Wizard is for influencers who want more certainty and confidence in their lives so that they can get rid of their brand deal blocks for good.
I've been an influencer for a while and I feel like I already know most of the common pitching techniques and best practices. I'm concerned this program will be too simplistic.
Having experience working with brands will actually help you achieve results even *faster* with Brand Deal Wizard because the strategies and tactics I'll teach you are most helpful for influencers with existing brand and agency contacts.
Does this program focus on getting brand deals for specific types of creators or on specific social media platforms?
Brand Deal Wizard is best suited for influencers creating content in family-friendly categories such as Lifestyle, Beauty, Parenting/Family, Fashion, Food, Health/Fitness, Home, and Travel. Additionally, though the principles I teach will help creators secure sponsorships on any social platform, we will talk mainly about YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok since those tend to be where most consumer brands are partnering with influencers right now.
Tell me more about the time commitment, schedule, and live sessions?
To truly get results, plan on allocating at least 2.5 hours per week for the duration of BDW. One hour will be for the live video sessions and thirty minutes for Q&A along with supplemental videos + resources and an additional hour for you to take action. Dates/times of the live sessions will be locked in after the cohort closes (all content will be archived if you can't make a session for some reason). To be clear, you will not be able to binge all four weeks at once or skip ahead to a future week's content. I specifically designed this course to build on itself week-by-week so that you get the most value out of the lessons.
Will this program be relevant for me even if I don't live in the US/UK/Canada?
Absolutely! The fundamentals that I teach in Brand Deal Wizard are universal and will apply in any country brands are partnering with influencers. As a heads up, some lessons focus on pitching tools like LinkedIn, which may not be the most prevalent business directory in your region but the lessons can be easily transferred.
How much access will I get to Justin personally?
Brand Deal Wizard includes access to an exclusive, private community where you can get support and guidance from other creators so that you'll never feel alone when navigating your next deal. There will be opportunities for interaction with Justin directly on the weekly live calls (including intimate Q&As) but this program is not group coaching or 1:1 coaching. Remember, by the end of BDW, you will have a completely renewed outlook on your brand deal strategy and feel empowered to negotiate your future sponsorships solo.
I am so confident that you will start getting Mind-Blowing Brand Deals after participating in the course that I'm offering a 30-Day, 100% Money-Back Guarantee from the time of purchase, as long as you put in the work. That means that if you've shown up to every live session, you've implemented all of the strategies and tactics I recommended, and still don't feel like the investment you made in your knowledge will help you make more money on your next brand deal, I will refund you in full.
