Top 25 Influencer Marketing Tools You Need to Try in {year} main image

Rome wasn’t built in a day. And like Rome, your influencer program is a big project that requires an army of workers and soldiers to build. You need the right types of influencers, the right content that actually engages your ideal customers, and most importantly - the right influencer marketing tools to automate the process.

Imagine these tools like your modern-day gladiators: they are agile and adapt to changes in the market, they’re results-oriented focusing on achieving campaign goals, they’re strategic in using data and analytics, and most importantly they work really hard to bring the wins home for you.

In the arena of influencer marketing, you need strong gladiators specialized in your needs that will make your influencer campaigns a success and help your brand scale profitably.

What are influencer marketing tools?

An influencer marketing tool is a software platform that helps brands find, connect with, and manage influencer relationships and campaigns.

Basically, a ninja that can help you deploy influencer marketing campaigns at scale. Or rather, a gladiator.

It can vary from a simple tool that excels at helping you niche down the right influencers by filtering by location, hashtags, and interests to full-on campaign management with payment options. It is a pillar in your influencer marketing strategy, whether you’re a start-up brand or a global consumer enterprise.

How can these tools improve your influencer marketing campaigns?

Tools for influencer marketing can significantly improve your influencer marketing campaigns in many ways. They can help you identify the best social media influencers to work with, manage your campaign from A-Z and measure your ROI.

Influencer discovery

At the core, influencer tools help you identify the right influencers for your business or project.

No audience is the same and no influencer is the same. Your target audience is unique, which means you need to find relevant influencers whose audience and style match yours.

If you’re a homey, southern, apple-pie-smelling company you’ll want an influencer whose audience resides in Kentucky, not Seattle (no shade to Seattle, as cloudy as it is!)

Influencer campaign management

These tools are great at helping you manage your campaigns efficiently and profitably. They usually have features like inbox sorting, tracking campaign progress and generally staying organized.

Measure ROI

Influencers are there to influence results. And those results need to be measured. An influencer marketing tool helps you measure your campaigns’ effectiveness with campaign analytics, including reach, engagement, and sales.

We put together a list of tools from our own research, unbiased websites like G2 and Captera, and our own experience working with these tools.

Tools for Influencer Discovery

If you have an internal team or agency that can take care of campaign management, payments, and tracking – this is what you need: an influencer marketing tool to find the best influencers for your brand. The ones that have an audience ready to be exposed to your product so they can be turned into your raving fans.
