1. Clearly identify your campaign objectives

What do you hope to achieve with your campaign? Are you looking to increase brand awareness, and engagement or simply get new leads? Who is your target audience? Starting with your objectives will help you pinpoint the details of the campaign. That way, you’ll be able to determine the most relevant platform(s) to use and the types of messages you’d like an influencer to share. You can then easily match the right influencer to your goals.

2. Determine the best platforms

Do you want your influencer campaign to reach as many people as possible? Do you want potential customers to be redirected to your website? Do you prefer video or photo content? Based on your predefined objectives, the ideal content on the platform of your choice will emerge, helping you to filter the pool of potential collaborators.

3. Work with influencers who share your brand’s values

When looking for influencers, think of your brand first. The person who supports, promotes, and demonstrates your product will become the face some customers might associate with the brand. Choose an influencer who posts content you want your brand to be presented in.

4. Select influencers who are experts in your target field

This is probably one of the most important rules in influencer marketing. Rather than stars or celebrities, seek to work with influencers whose communities fit the profiles of the people you’re trying to convert into customers (leads). 

For example, if you sell video games, you need to work with gamers who are popular on Twitch, YouTube or TikTok, and whose fans are likely to be interested in your products so that they can buy or recommend them.

5. The importance of validating statistics

When building your list of potential influencers, it’s essential to validate certain metrics to ensure that you’re choosing the right person. Does the influencer in question have a good engagement rate based on their reach? Are his or her subscribers genuine, or is there a percentage of fake subscribers? Does the influencer’s audience match your target audience (age range, language, location, etc.)? These preliminary validations carried out with professional software, will enable you to avoid the “trial and error” method, putting all the chances on your side for a successful campaign.


Influencer marketing is an effective way for a brand to reach a new audience, increase traffic, and gain visibility. Taking the time to choose the right partners will help you to set up a campaign that generates the desired results.

Good success!
