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 can I ask an influencer to promote my product?”, DearMishuDad answers

DM them a straightforward message, and ask an influencer something like: “Hi Johnny, I would like to pay you for promoting my ____ product. Is that ok, and what would be your fee?”

 

That’s right, that’s right:Β The whole notion of “outreach” to Influencers is a myth.Β  There is no outreach, there is “hiring.” If you want to work with an Influencer who is a professional and will take your product and business seriously, think “hiring” instead of “outreach.”Β  Think simple, talk in short sentences, and get to the point.Β  What you want to know is:
1. Will he/she/it do it.
2. How much.

 

Don’t: “$5 for shout out πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ DM me for shout out.”

Here is an example of what worked last year but won’t fly THIS year (or at least not by those who reads my post):

DONT!! $5 for shout out πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ DM me for shout out.

There is no point of hiring an influencer for a universal “all-products-are-ok” for me to “shout out”” (not to mention that $5/work sounds like something that will bring negative ROI to you).Β  In fact, from my experience, you don’t want someone to shout out your product, you want a SERIOUS InfluencerΒ  that you KNOW that your product/brand fits the desire of that Influencer followers.Β  You also want to validate that the Influencer feels GOOD about your product (otherwise how can that Influencer send a good message, a message that all will listen to).

 

Should I pay a #retainer to the Influencer?

If you are in love with that Influencers job, then why not? This is generally called making them your brand Ambassador but still keep them external contracors. This way they will lock down their schedule for you, and that’s awesome. It’s a big love story…

Am I allowed to tell the #Influencer exactly what pic and text to post?

Yes, but you are missing the chance for an authentic post that they will be creating for you. They are really professionals, they know what to do. If you give them your post or photo, it will look like an ad and not like an authentic testimony.

 

Do I need to choose an #Influencer from my same industry?- DearMishuDad answers

Not necessarily. What you need to #focus on is the type of people who follow the Influencer, and what else they might like. For example, my @DearMishu is followed by dog lovers but also by people who are interested in travel, a holistic lifestyle, family, and living in the present. What products would those people like? Get creative!

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.Β  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…Β  and yet only if your followers are LISTENING to you, to your advice, to what you preach, to your – yes – your BS…Β  then and only then do I consider you an Influencer.
