Social Media Influencer? Here are 10 marketing platforms you NEED to be on.
Have you ever wondered why social media influencers are always saying #ad, #sponsored, or #partner? It’s most likely because they are being compensated for their opinion on the product they are using. If you are a social media guru and you’re not on Influencer Marketing Platforms- You NEED to be! I’m going to talk about my absolute favorite ones that I’ve had the best luck and experience with. I’ve worked with brands like HelloFresh, Sperry, Aldi, and SO many more on these platforms. I love building relationships with brands. My specific focus is health & wellness. Anything that is along those lines are going to be right up my alley. I also have little ones so I like to work with clothing brands too. All natural cleaning products, food, and beauty products are things that fit into niche! Some of these have waitlists but most are easy to get on! Just link your instagram up and they can see your analytics to make sure you have a real & genuine following! Once you do that brands will start reaching out to you!
When on Instagram, don’t loose yourself. Money doesn’t matter if your trying to get someone to buy something that you or your family don’t genuinely like and it’s not fair to your followers to advertise something that you wouldn’t use yourself. So before you “apply” to something make sure YOU would go to Target, Kroger or wherever to get this product. Also, don’t ever be too good to work with smaller shops in exchange for free goods.
Popular Pays is where I got my FIRST paid partnership! It still remains one of my favorite places to work with brands. I like that the company has an app that you can download and access via phone. Not all of them have this so it’s a nice feature. You have to propose an amount for these gigs. The best place to determine your price is heading to Social Blue Book. Once there- you can use a tool that easily tells you all of that!
Aspire IQ is great for established bloggers/influencers! It’s a little harder to get on right now and they have specific requirements you have to meet. I worked with HelloFresh through Aspire. You also propose your rate on this site. Some of their campaigns are product for post but they always good products with a high value! This is also one of my favorite platforms!
Heartbeat is A M A Z I N G for newbies! It’s easy to get on and while their payout isn’t high- it’s an amazing starting point. This is one of the first places I applied to! I’ve worked with Dunkin Donuts and Gymboree through them so they definitely work with big brands as well! This is also in the App Store so it’s easy to access on your phone! Right now, they have a paid Tinder campaign!
Cohley is one I’m actually pretty new to! I’ve worked with a few companies so far and have had a really good experience. It’s a very organized process when posting content which I love. One campaign I’ve done on there is Winc, a wine delivery service. I am obsessed with Winc so it was a perfect fit!
REP is a platform I’m on but have never used for campaigns. I am new to it so I’m still feeling it out. They do have a area where you can talk to other influencers and bloggers and get advice which I love!
Like REP, Brandsnob is essentially the same thing. They also have a area where you can talk to other influencers and bloggers and get advice. They also have a contact swap where you can swap contact information to a company you would like to work with in exchange for a company you have contact information for!
Grapevine has a few really good campaigns I’ve seen!All things from teeth whiting to lawn care so there is no specific niche! Definitely head there to join so you don’t miss out on opportunities in the future!
Trendship is very unique. Basically, it’s only product for posts but they have amazing things like restaurant meals and hotel stays on there! They also have clothing, beauty, and a small amount of children wear.
I’m NOT on octoly simply because it’s more fashion and beauty based and that’s not my niche. With that being said- I wanted to put it up here for people who are into that- This is the perfect site for you!
Mavrck has campaigns working with companies like Godiva Chocolate! I’ve never worked with them yet but I’ve just joined! I can’t wait to see what they have to offer!
Hope this helps you guys, thanks for reading!
