  • Using Facebook for Social Media Marketing

  • How to get started with TikTok for Social Media Marketing

The golden rule of TikTok Marketing : relevance is more important than reach in TikTok Influencer marketing.

Don’t simply approach the people behind accounts with the largest following⁠⁠. Not only will they be incredibly expensive to work with, but many references to your brand could fall on deaf ears.

Find out who is posting popular videos in your niche by navigating to the Discover tab, and searching a handful of keywords that relate to your industry, products, or services.

Document the users with the most followers or most popular videos within this topic, watch their posts to determine a fit for your brand, and think about reaching out.

While this is great encouragement when producing your own original content, this also gives us clues about when to nab an influencer as they’re on the cusp of becoming popular.

Instagram influencer marketing removes the barriers of traditional advertising because customers are introduced to your brand from a trusted source (the influencer) on an authentic, casual platform (Instagram).
