Guys, I'm getting ready to launch my first start-up and would love to see what tool is best to find social media influencers for marketing.
- Kuba Rogalski made this productI’d suggest using a social media monitoring tool. There are quite a few of them that you could test but when it comes to hands-on experience, I can give you a biased recommendation based on how I use our very own tool. Social media posts have influencer scores assigned to them. With the influencer filter (based on a scale 0–10), you can quickly get to the most relevant posts and engage those authors you consider worth cooperating with. You can filter the results based on a domain, so you can browse accounts specifically and see a few additional metrics such as a number of mentions, reach, voice share, and influence. Hope you'll find it a bit helpful!
- Aleh Barysevich made this productTry creating social listening alerts for your competitors or industry keywords, and then go to the Influencer report to identify the most influential people who've mentioned them.
- Shannon Bray made this productI'm biased – this is my product! But we've spent the past year and a half hand picking and carefully vetting 30k of the most talented and most reliable creators and influencers in the world. I've personally met and worked with thousands of them myself.
- 1HipSocialI’d recommend HipSocial by 500apps to find social media influencers. Its a social media management tool that features content scheduling, social listening, analytics, and more. But its social listening is what you want to utilize. It lets you follow topics, hashtags, competitors, your audience, and influencers. Essentially, you’ll create a stream for influencers. You’ll want to see if they’re mentioning you or your competitors. You can also search for topics and hashtags that are related to your business. Depending on the platform and niche, influencers will utilize at least one of the same hashtags in the majority of their content. And if you see something similar to this occurring, you can look into it. How you use HipSocial to find influencers depends on how well known you or your competitors are, if you’re targeting micro-influencers, what platform you’re using, etc. If you’re interested in seeing how HipSocial by 500apps can help you find social media influencers, then try its 30-day free trial today!
