Deciding and planning the influencer marketing campaign is the easy part. Getting influencers interested in sharing your products? That can be a bit more difficult. Difficult, but not impossible. Here are 3 steps to growing your influencer talent pool that are much simpler than you think.
- Be authentic.
Authenticity matters when it comes to influencer rating, but it is also important for you. The content you share should reflect your brand’s values and mission. This helps the influencers know if their values align with yours. Being aligned creates a strong brand/influencer relationship.
- Be interested.
If you received a message saying that you would be a perfect influencer for a jewelry company, but your focus is on health and fitness, you are likely not going to respond. That brand clearly didn’t do its homework. Take a few minutes to scroll through a potential influencer’s feed to ensure promoting your product makes sense. The more you know, the better you can communicate.
- Be engaged.
You should take an active role in helping the influencer become successful in promoting your products. Of course, you should allow them creative freedom to create what will speak to their audience, but offering suggestions and communicating with them is a great way to create a feeling of true collaboration.
