How to work with social influencers

In many cases, it depends a lot on what influencers you’re working with when choosing a campaign type. Some influencers have their own vision on how they want to work with brands but more importantly, they know their audience the best. And what that means is that they also know what kind of content performs the best on their channels and what their audiences’ interests are.

Plus, product review blog posts are evergreen: if someone researches your product and finds a positive review from an influencer, it might just be the finishing touch for convincing them to buy.

Sponsored posts:

Ideally, you want them to keep their authenticity and not be too sales-y; rather, sponsored posts should promote your business or your products in a subtle way, rather than mentioning your business every other paragraph

Giveaways and contests:

Giveaways and contests are great at generating buzz about your business or your products. And if you collaborate with an influencer, the reach and the results will be that much more impressive – especially if you have a…
