Case study: https://www.instagram.com/sethsbikehacks is doing the #Influence right.

If you’re looking for an example of an Instagram influencer post that is authentic and “doing influence” right, have a look at the @sethsbikehacks post below.

This is a good example of a very authentic #sponsored post: Seth really knows bikes inside out, ppl can see that, and ppl listen to him on that topic.

HowΒ SethΒ ‘s post could be improved: using Hashtags- bc of the new IG feature where users can save hashtags and these appear on their streams – will give you more exposure. Also use #Ad instead of #Sponsored as it’s more common and take less real estate in the post.

There is no “outreach” to Influencers, there is “hiring”. Think “hiring” instead of “outreach” – DearMishuDad

Case study: Allie is a good example of micro-influencer who kills it

 

Allie does not have over 1M followers. Β She has only 7.8k – which makes her a micro-influencer.Β  Even a micro-micro-influencer. HOWEVER, look Β how talented she is, how genuine of a message she’s radiating to those 7.8k – she is so real the way she drinks her coffee (the product she promotes here) that it’s..amazing… and ppl LISTEN to her. Β And the engagement is GREAT (100 comments, that’s very very high rate compared to her number of followers).

Furthermore, she shows that she cares, she always respond to comments, look:

Alien (micro-influencer) always engage the engagers

Responding brings even more engagement and trust.

Perfect micro-influencer, we need more of you, Allie!

Should I ask the #Influencer for exclusivity with the Contract? – DearMishuDad answers..

Yes! You can ask that when discussing the terms of the Contract (https://dearmishudad.com/influencer-agreement/)– in this case, it means that the Influencer will not work with competitors.

 

What determines influence? Is it a calculated #score, fan numbers or something else?

There is a hot debate on that. In my opinion:

A minimum of 50 engagements on their posts (can be comments, retweet’s, replies, like, etc. ).

A minimum of 2,000 followers.

Their posts are totally awesome and original.


Besides that, it’s all a matter of quality, and cannot be measured by tools, only by YOU.

Micro-Influencers are game changers + the main reason why a consumer will end up buying your product or service. These are the people they trust.

How do I know that an Influencer is #fake?

-Check their followers: are many of them without pictures? No posts? Weird names? No names? No Bio?

-Check what they commented exactly: do the comment looks like an output of a robot? Spam comments..?

-How are their posts – do they look authentic or trash/junk/spam/low quality?
