Free Tools to Run End-to-End Influencer Marketing Campaigns. There are four stages to every influencer marketing campaign. Step one: Define your strategy You don’t have to be the world’s top marketer to understand the importance of strategy. Earlier this year I wrote an entire eBook dedicated to helping marketers write their first Influencer Marketing strategy, if you’re new to this i’d suggest you give it a read – it’s free. Step three: Connect and collaborate Now that you have defined your strategy, researched your influencers and you’re ready to connect you’ll need a tool to manage all your influencer communication, collaboration, payments and content in one place.

The other measurement tool you could use is Hootsuite, if you set up a free account you can track hashtags and keywords across platforms. All the tools mentioned above won’t cost your brand anything to register.
