Must Have: 6 Influencer Marketing Tools for Your Brand

Social media marketing is more than just posting a tweet about the launch of a new product. Like commercial marketing, heavy analysis and research should be done to ensure that your strategies are effective. One strategy that has stolen the spotlight recently is influencer marketing. This year, most marketing managers are increasing their budgets on influencer marketing due to its success in improving brand awareness and overcoming the ad-blocks (say goodbye to pesky digital ads). However, many go about this without the right tools and action plan. For example, brands invest blindly in influencers without considering the important metrics of the audience and the magnitude of their ‘influence’ which are important in optimizing investments.
