Ultimate influencer marketing guide
Available for the first time in PDF, this influencer marketing guide covers all you need to know about social media influencers.
If you’re looking for someone to promote your next social media campaign, there’s an almost limitless number of influencers to choose from.
But should you choose the million follower celebrity, or choose to engage with your micro influencer?
My guide covers the influencer industry from top to bottom and helps you weave your way through the intricacies of:
- finding the right influencer for your brand
- how to engage them with your brand
- what rules you should follow to ensure your campaigns remain legal
Trending hashtags tracker
Hashtags are awesome for boosting the views of your social media posts. But only if you use the right ones.
The trick is to not focus on the hashtags with the most mentions, but the ones that are most relevant to your brand. And this tracker shows you exactly how to find the hashtags most relevant to your brand.
And with the spreadsheet, you can organize your favorite hashtags, so you have them on hand ready for your next social media post. Easy.
Social media report - share of voice
We all know social media, and marketing as a whole, is about setting benchmarks and then working hard to beat them.
But how do you set a benchmark for your social media, when you have nothing to compare it to?
A share of voice report helps you compare the impact of your social media marketing strategy against that of your competitors. Giving you insight into how your marketing plan is impacting your industry. And providing you with a vital overview of what your potential consumers are engaging with.
In this example, we’ve simulated what you should include in an SOV report, using one of the most creative motor brands on the market (Hint: It’s Tesla). Inspiring you on what you should include, and what analysis you can gain from it.
