That was an informative piece! Besides Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, I think Pinterest is also an excellent platform to search for an influencer.

Now days a lot people have fake followers, how to find real people in social media?

Venetia Anderson • 4 years ago

Great question! To get an idea of if their followers are real or not, you'll also need to pay special attention to the influencer's engagement rate. That is, how many people are liking and commenting on their posts compared to the number of overall followers.

This article was very informative. However, when locating influencers by hash tagging what do you search specifically? #influncers?

Venetia Anderson • 4 years ago

Hey Felicia, Venetia from Oberlo here. When using hashtags to find influencers, you should use hashtags related to the niche your desired influencer is in. For example, if you were a fashion brand, you could try looking under hashtags like #outfitoftheday, #fashionblogger or #mylook.

Great! What are the usual deals one can make with influencers - is it payment (what is the range of fees from nano to mega influencers), or gifting the product / service itself?

Venetia Anderson • 4 years ago

Hey it's Venetia from Oberlo here.

As a general rule of thumb, you can use the one cent per follower (or $100 per 10K followers) rule. This us just a starting place though, and you should always ask individual influencers for their suggested rate. You'll find that many nano and micro influencers will be happy to do it in return for receiving the product for free.

I would also like to know the range of fees. Good question

As a marketing person you should be seeking to align with other interest groups and niches. Like Febreze is promoting Purina pro plan dog food or Salt of the Earth is on Gluten free bread. Having the right content for the right people makes it more effective.
