What is a music #Influencer?

Someone whose opinion music lovers listen to

 

I was asked to explain in simple English what a Music Influencer is, so here it goes: an influencer is someone that people LISTEN to.  Yes – you can think that you are an Influencer, you write every day, you publish twice a day on Instagram, twice a day on Pinterest, 12 times on Twitter…  and yet only if your followers are LISTENING to you, to your advice, to what you preach, to your – yes – your BS…  then and only then do I consider you an Influencer.

“What is #InfluencerMarketing?”, DearMishuDad answers.

Marketing has many sub-divisions and focuses. Marketing that focuses on finding & maintaining #Influencers is Influencer marketing. This has become popular because it is considered to be very effective for the cost. Influencers fall under the umbrella category of “word-of-mouth marketing”, which is considered to have the best influence on people’s opinion.

What are the best tools for finding Influencers for my product? What are the best tools for Influencer identification?

The best #tools are the original tools that come with the social network itself: Instagram app for Instagram Twitter app for twitter Facebook app for Facebook Frankly saying, other tools are too general and won’t address a specific product that YOU are building. Therefore, you should search by yourself, via hashtags that are suitable for your products, and see which Influencers get the best engagement, which ones have a real cult of followers that would be interested in your product or brand.

Who are social media Influencers? What is an Influencer?, DearMishuDad answers.

Influencers are accounts on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Pinterest, etc. that people listen to and follow their advice

“Can I use the creative of the sponsored post that the #Influencer was paid to sponsor my product?“

Only if the Contract between you two (https://dearmishudad.com/influencer-agreement/) is says so. Otherwise, ask the #Influencer, they may still agree. No matter what do not use it without their consent because it’s illegal.

 

 

“Influencers are a trusted authority on their #Hashtags” – DearMishuDad

Influencers are a trusted authority on their….

#Hashtags

 

Yes, that’s right, it’s not the topic they are authorities on, but rather their hashtag.  This means that when someone is searching for a specific hashtag, the Influencer who is right on top of the search results is… the most influential.

Tip:  Look for hashtags that have less than 500,000 uses. Choosing a less popular hashtag gives you more opportunity to have an impact.

Finding out influencer pay rate

Yes that’s the RIGHT way – just DM a short message to your potential Influencer, and ask for their rates.

The answer in this example is great – straight to the point and showing authenticity (it’s a good sign when an influencer will not agree to promote just any product).

Tip: if the Influencer’s answer is not very clear or sincere, or they don’t ask you about your product, they might not be a Pro

Why should my business work with a social media #influencer?

3. Influencers create high quality content for you that you can re-purpose later for your marketing.

4. They Engage NEW target audiences, and create a relationship between them and your brand.
