75% of Marketers agree that identifying influencers is their biggest challenge.
According to Adweek, one of the main roadblocks to a successful influencer campaign is connecting with influencers. Seventy-five percent of those surveyed said identifying the right influencers was their most significant challenge. In 2017, 84% of marketing teams allocated resources toward influencer marketing strategies. With 71% of consumers stating that they’re more likely to make a purchase based on a social media reference, that trend is expected to grow in 2018.

New Feature Lineup:
You’re stretched for time, and building an influencer or brand advocate program is only possible with time investment. And we know the hardest step in that process is identifying and evaluating potential influencers.
With Discover, we’re bringing you the data you need to narrow your prospects and analyze their performance. This robust tool empowers you to dive deeper and identify previously unknown influencers and fans. Here’s a list of the awesome new things you can get done in a snap.
New Influencer Score
In Discover, each potential influencer receives an influencer score under the “Potential Influence” column on a range from 0 – 4. This proprietary approach takes into account their number of followers and engagement. It’s just another way we’re working to make identifying the best influencers simple and straightforward.
Real-Time Search Outside Your Landscape
Searching via Twitter or Instagram in Discover is going to give you the most recent relevant posts based on your search. For Twitter, we’ll provide the most current 1000 tweets from the last seven days. For Instagram, we’ll show you the most recent 500 posts.
Influencer Profile Analytics
Within Discover, you’ll be able to get a quick highlight of a potential influencer’s performance in the last week. This analysis gives you an immediate sense of the influencer’s potential for your brand and helps you keep tabs on the impact your current influencers are making.
Most Engaging Posts
Based on the search, we surface the top performing posts by engagement. And just like you can elsewhere in Rival IQ, you can see this in a list view, or show posts with photos as a grid.
See which hashtags other people, influencers, and organizations are using together and how they perform. This section of the tool breaks out engagement rate, the number of unique hashtags, and which hashtags drive the highest engagement in social posts. This real-time analysis will help your team make last-minute shifts to help amplify and extend your reach on Instagram and Twitter.
Identify who is sharing your content or which sources of content are most popular. You can even search by specific links, allowing your team to understand which pages of your site, like blogs posts or product pages, are being shared on Twitter and Instagram.
Use URL tracking to determine who is sharing your blog content, a giveaway, or product. This extra level of exposure means you now have a better story to share about how social is amplifying your content.
