What is an Influencer Marketing Platform?

Maybe you’ve heard of influencer marketing. But what is an influencer marketing platform? How does it work? All your questions will be answered below.

An influencer marketing platform is a type of software that offers a direct way for brands and influencers to connect and work together. It’s a space for brands to find new influencers, manage campaigns, and track ROI. Importantly, influencer marketing platforms give brands the space to focus on developing genuine partnerships with their influencers by reducing the time-consuming parts of their campaigns.

Influencer marketing platforms also provide a way for influencers to monetize their social media content, allowing them to build their personal brands and turn their passion into a full time job.

Some influencer marketing platforms also offer additional strategic services to help brands through each stage of the process. Others simply provide a convenient self-serving tool. Many of them operate across multiple social channels, but some focus on a particular social platform.
