You’ll notice in the member area, there is a button to access a full brand database. This database is compiled of brands that have worked with influencers in the past. This allows you to contact brands who are familiar with influencer marketing and offer your services.
Based on your influence, you’ll want to choose the right filters that will match you with brands more likely to work with you. Smaller influencers, may want to find brands with less than 5,000 followers. While these brands are smaller, and may not have a high marketing budget, they’ll be more willing to offer free products/services in exchange for you influence. Medium – larger influencers, may want to target medium – large brands that have a larger budget that can match their rates.
You might want to take some time to play around with these settings to find the best options for you.Since we have a large database, there might be multiple filters that can give you the best results.
Use the category filter to start narrowing brands down by niche/industry. By clicking the “Category dropdown, you can select multiple categories, as many as you like. As you click, the database will automatically return results in real time. To remove a category, just click again, or click the “clear filters” button to start over.
Tip: If you’re having trouble finding categories, scroll to the bottom of the database page, and you’ll find a chart with “top categories” to give you ideas of trends and additional opportunities
Since we have hundreds of unique categories and sub-categories, you can also use the search tool to find categories with a specific name.In this example, we searched for “beauty” which gave us results of all “beauty” related categories, as well as the brands that have “beauty” in their username, contact information, category, or website.
Once you’ve found the right category, and/or search, narrow even further by number of followers from brands. Enter any range you like, and the database will automatically filter your result in real-time.
Tip: In order to get the best results, limit filters by either using category filter or search filter, then combine with the followers filter. If you use both category and search, you may limit results to a smaller pool of brands.
In this example we selected category “Clothing (Brand)” and filtered brands that have 10,000 to 50,000 followers.
