But there is still a huge problem. 75% of marketers are facing a challenge with finding the right influencers. This isn’t surprising because searching for influencers manually takes a lot of time and effort.
The good news, however, is that there are a lot of influencer network platforms such as HelloSociety and Activate that that can easily connect you with influencers in your niche industry. But you could end up spending quite a lot on these platforms.
Then there are influencer marketplaces that allow you to connect with influencers for a small fee or commission. Tribe, Brand Snob, and HYPR are just some the popular options.

You need to engage influencers and build relationships that last, while still maintaining a professional connection.
Otherwise, your campaign will fail to meet your business goals and objectives, despite your meticulous planning.
