How do brands #pay influencers to create content?

The brands negotiate a contract (Sample Influencer Contract –  (http://dearmishudad.com/influencer-agreement/), which says exactly what’s the pay, for what, when and who has the right to re-use the content, and voila – brands pay, and Influencers deliver!

What can I ask when I’m interviewing a potential Influencer to work with?

Here are some good questions:

  1. Ask about their love for your product, because if they don’t love it how can they make others love it.
  2. Have they promoted a similar product or a competitor
  3. How much do they usually charge per post (and why)
  4. Ask to see their best engagemented posts and then ask why they were successful and can they repeat the same success with your post and why.
  5. Ask what the optimal time and days have been for their most engaged posts.
  6. Do they delete the post the day later or keep them forever?
  7. Last, ask them if you can keep the creatives from their sponsored posts that you pay for.

How much should I pay Influencers to promote my brand/product?

Ask THEM how much they suggest (and why). Then add a bit more. Why? Besides showing that you really respect them, and your product, this will let them give even more to you.  Tip: I found socialbluebook.com‘s* recommended Influencer rate estimates to be pretty accurate.

*I’m not getting affiliation fee.

Should I pay to only Influencers with 1,000,000 followers?

Hmmm number of followers is important, but anything over 2,000 (in many cases) is enough. More important is their quality of posts, and how much their followers are LISTENING to their recommendations. You’ll probably get more attention and more bang for your buck with a smaller Influencer.

Can an Influencer delete a paid post?

Yes (it happens often) but you – the brand – should know about the deletion in advance. You can also lay this out in your Contract.
