The word “influencer” is a buzz word garnering a lot of attention behind the scenes in business meetings — and for good reason. Influencers have loyal followings, usually in a niche market. They offer information and tips to their audiences, which usually includes products and services. Why should your business use influencers? Short answer: Because they work.
Influencer marketing comes with its fair share of challenges for companies unfamiliar with the market. How do you find the right influencer for your brand? Right now, the market is saturated with individuals who call themselves influencers. Here are a few things that you should look for to make sure you are getting the most out of your influencer marketing plan.
Before reaching out to an influencer, review their website and social media pages to see if they are a good fit. Does their content appear to be a match for your brand? You want to see if there is fluidity with the items they promote. If they appear to promote a number of different, seemingly unrelated items, then that might not be the best influencer for your company. When you look at their page, you want the items you see to make sense in relation to who the person is.
