To launch an effective influencers marketing campaign, the key is to find and engage the right influencers. The right influencers is someone who can reach your target audience, build trust and drive engagement. 

Now, you may be wondering how to figure out who are the right influencers? Before reaching out to potential social media influencer, there are 3 fundamental aspects that brands and agencies should consider. 

 

  • Relevance, referring to the contents that the influencers are sharing, are they relevant to the business being promoted. 
  • Reach, the number of people that could potentially be reached through the influencers follower base and are these followers the genuine and organic audience that will add value to the business?
  • Resonance, the potential engagements that influencers can create with an audience that's relevant to your brand.

 

Bigger isn't always better. A huge followers count is meaningless if those followers aren't interested in your business' offerings. And a small follower count can be very effective if the influencer has a dedicated and authentic engaged interest.
