When collaborating with influencers, it’s always nice to know you can count on them to help you get the desired results. Keeping that in mind: influencers are as authentic and powerful as their audience lets them be. That’s why you need to remember one thing: just because their account says they have a big amount of followers, doesn’t mean those followers are genuine and real. It might look like an endless struggle to find out who is getting a little… creative with their follower growth strategy and who isn’t, but we hope to help you figure out who has genuine followers, and who is fooling you.
It seems only yesterday we started Influo from scratch. We noticed how companies were struggling to tap into the many uses and benefits of Influencer Marketing, how they got bogged down by the logistics of it, and how the software they used – if they used any at all – was lacking. The result of our hard work is an all-round service provider that supports organization from A to Z in all things Influencer Marketing. We’ve learned quite a lot in those months of support and growth and we’re happy to share our key takeaways with you. Let’s go.
Being an influencer is more than just creating content and selecting publish when it’s ready. It is planning, it is researching and it is engaging. Every day, there are new social media platforms showing up. That makes it difficult for people whose job it is to be online to know where they need to post at what time. Influencers have as much time as any other person, so they need to make decisions about which platforms they want to use. Every social media channel is different and which ones to use depends on your goals and the audience you want to reach.
It is good to have a clear view of your options as an influencer. That is why we listed the most popular social media channels below, and when you should be posting on them.
