But, some general rules to keep in mind no matter what platform include:

  • To boost engagement use 3 to 9 tags. 
  • Include tags in the content and not as a comment on the post (especially for Instagram)

Surprisingly not all influencers have hundreds of thousands of followers. Some of the most successful individuals are micro-influencers and have a small but loyal following of just a few thousand people. What is important is that all influencers know their audiences well. They understand what the needs are, likes, and what appeals to them. They know exactly when to post to get the most engagement and the content to create that will encourage and boost this engagement. Businesses look for influencers that can generate more interest around their products or brand and they know this is done by effectively getting the audience to see the content about their company. If you aren’t posting at the appropriate time you could be missing out on a number of sponsorship opportunities. If you want to get more sponsorships as an influencer you need to prove to them that you can bring in more traffic to their product or brand.

5. Define Your Clear Personal Brand

The most successful influencers stand out because they have created a brand of who they are. This brand is reflected through the content they share, the images they post, and the products they use. You can easily identify these individuals just by what they share they are a clear unique aesthetic and style. Additionally, they focus their content to a specific niche. Whether this is food, nutrition, health, fashion, or travel, if you want to get more sponsors to notice you you have to narrow in on a specific area that is reflected in the content you create.
