If you’ve been searching for influencers manually by looking up hashtags or scouring the Instagram Explore page, perhaps it’s time to upgrade to an influencer marketing platform like Aspire. Keep reading to learn more about the 5 influencer discovery tools we provide to help you find better-aligned influencers quickly and easily — plus, stories of how brands utilized Aspire to find their favorite influencers and build some of their most successful partnerships.
1. Branded application pages to invite people to join!
As the lines continue to blur around who is most influential to brands, we make it possible to invite anyone to join. First things first, we want to make it as easy and streamlined as possible to invite people to join a campaign. That’s why we have a tool that allows you to create custom application pages, where you can invite and onboard anyone to join a campaign. These application pages act as a honeytrap for whoever you want to work with — from influencers, to ambassadors, to customers, and even employees.
Use this application page to:
- Promote on your social media channels
- Add to your website so that people can apply at any time
- Collect relevant information from your potential partners which will automatically populate in our influencer CRM
- Share on our Creator Marketplace and watch our active influencers sign up
2. Influencer search engine
Imagine being able to Google search for influencers. That’s exactly what our influencer search engine gives brands access to. Our powerful search engine allows you to explore the entire influencer universe across Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, YouTube, Pinterest, and online web (i.e. blogs) to see data-rich profiles and review influencers before you invite them into a campaign.
Unlike most influencer platforms, Aspire vets the influencers that appear in our search engine to hide any inactive, suspicious, and non-influential accounts to ensure that you will only see high-quality potential partners in your search results.
Our search tool lets you filter by:
- Social following size
- Audience & influencer demographics
- Vertical or industry
- Aesthetic through our image search function — a customer favorite!
Once you find an influencer who catches your eye, you can click into their profile to gain deeper insights into their engagement metrics, authenticity rating, comment sentiment, audience interests, and more.
“Aspire has helped us save time, money, and energy. Being able to filter through influencers by specialty topics and having the right platform to do this is huge for us.”
– Nicole Rohrer, Senior Marketing Manager at iHerb
3. Creator marketplace
Nobody likes a one-way relationship — not even in influencer marketing. Now, you can say goodbye to ignored DMs and rejected emails. With our creator marketplace, influencers can find your campaigns and reach out to you.
Our marketplace is teeming with influencers who have specifically signed up to be part of Aspire to be noticed by brands and to take part in campaigns. This means that you can submit your campaign to our marketplace and get hundreds of proposals from influencers who are interested in your brand within days.
