How to Offer to Help Someone
“Discover how to offer help someone in the most effective and impactful way.”
In this episode, Cassie and I talk about the way we meet and what she learned about how to offer to help someone. Over the years I have found that offering help in the proper way is essential when reaching out to someone. It is important to be specific about what you can bring to the table and to do your research on the brand or organization to understand what they are looking for.
Building a relationship is key, and even if you hear a no initially, keep the relationship going as the opportunity might present itself in the future. Additionally, volunteering or becoming an intern is a great way to get started offering help and meeting people. Paying to attend someone’s event or offering services for free as an example of your work can also be great ways to get your foot in the door.In this episode, you will learn about:
- Offering specific help instead of vague offers when seeking to collaborate or partner
- Building relationships to increase chances of success in collaborations
- Investing in someone’s products and services as a way to demonstrate genuine care.
“Don’t be afraid to pay to cut to the front of the line. If there’s someone that you really want to meet and you want to eventually offer to help them in some way, don’t be afraid to pay to get there if you can afford it.”

Lee and Cassie discuss the proper way to offer to help people. Do your research first, come back with specific ideas, and make your pitch personal. Having a relationship established first before you offer some sort of service can also help.[00:06:09]
If you want to help out at someone’s event, get to know the event. Offer to be an intern, offer to volunteer. Most people need help at events. If you can offer something specific as a way to help, then it really can open up an opportunity.[00:11:20]
If there is a specific service that you’re offering and it’s something you can do remotely on your own, go for it. Doing the work for them and making it so easy for them to say yes is another great way to get your foot in the door.[00:12:24]
The more that you can connect with someone over in person, over coffee, or over zoom calls, the better. Don’t be afraid to pay to cut to the front of the line.
