Hey, what’s up! So you’re interested in working with me? Awesome!
This is where I share a little bit more about the blog and whether or not a collaboration or partnership would be worth your while. (It totally would, btw :))
If you haven’t checked out my about page yet, you may want to take a look to learn more about my journey and why I started Gentleman Within.
The Gentleman Within Difference
I enjoy writing articles and editorials on men’s style/lifestyle, grooming, self-improvement and all of that. I put a lot of time and effort into it and try to write in a humanistic, down to earth, relatable way, and not robotic for the search engines.
Not only do I enjoy the writing process (for the most part), I specialize in longer form content which means my editorials have the potential to rank well within Google and the search engines to reach a wider, highly targeted audience. In fact, over 80% of my blog traffic is through organic search.
The same goes for my YouTube videos. Over 60% of my traffic sources come from suggested videos and YouTube’s search function. This means a large percentage of my YouTube videos are highly targeted within the men’s style/lifestyle and fashion niche. I may not have the most subscribers, but my view counts are higher than average and my videos have high engagement from loyal subscribers and supporters.
Collaborating With Me
I put a lot of time and effort into the content I create. I’m passionate about it and lovingly create each piece of content so that it’s unique and true to who I am. There are a lot of me-too websites and copycats out there, but I don’t like to follow what’s “hot” or “on trend” when it comes to the content I create. I create what I like and also what my audience asks of me.
Whether I’m drafting and delivering an editorial, recording and editing a YouTube video, planning for a photoshoot with my photographer or curating my Instagram feed with style/lifestyle photos or IG optimized video, it’s all done in a methodical and thought out manner. I do my research and get to know the companies I work with. And when I work with brands, I ensure that I create a piece of content that feels organic and introduces the brand in an authentic way. I keep communication lines open and ensure that it is truly a collaborative effort. Ultimately, I want to bring my audience massive value. The goal is to ensure that all parties—myself, the brand and my audience can benefit from the work that I create.
A Couple More Things
I designed this ‘I Am A Gentleman Manifesto‘ as something that can help to guide men down a fulfilling path of endless self-reflection and self-improvement, and that I myself am always striving towards.
I also have a free email course, ‘A Crash Course To Better Style‘ that helps menswear enthusiasts early on in their style journey.
Nearly 40% of my blog’s audience is in the 25-34 age range. And so I cater to the young adult demographic. These are men who have disposable income and care about their appearance. Additionally, about 20% are 18-25 and nearly 20% are in the 35-44 age range respectively.
Potential Collaboration Ideas
I’m always down for a mutually beneficial collaboration or partnership that brings all parties value. Here are some ideas on how we can work together.

- Press trip
- Social media management/takeovers
