Use real influencers to promote your brand: Intellifluence

Posted July 6th, 2018 in Social Media. Tagged: , .

You know how totally inappropriate it is when a huge celebrity actor totally unrelated to food features in commercials or becomes the brand ambassador for a grocery store chain? What sense does it make when someone like Mike Tyson promotes a brand like Nickelodeon?

What we’re trying to get at is, that often the most beaming of businesses make the somewhat misplaced marketing decision of hiring celebrities for promoting their brand just so that they can have a known face at their front, thinking it will create a great brand image for them. While it may work in some cases, in others, it can fall flat leaving such businesses out of millions of dollars and probably, loss of some customer base.

Now picture this. Instead of spending so much for the popular face who probably doesn’t even relate to your line of business, wouldn’t it be much more apt and smarter if you could rope in some non-celebrity who has a lot of followers on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to promote your product / service among their following for a much lower price? Such people are known as influencers since they are in a unique position to sway the liking of a lot of people (their social followers) in favor of a product or service. Influencer marketing is the buzz-term in business circles these days and if you know what we’re talking about, you’d love to check out the online tool we’re covering today – Intellifluence.

Intellifluence – The simplest & smartest way to socially market your product

Intellifluence is a SaaS platform that connects you with influencers who have a large social media following and whose followers in turn have a large following. By letting you reach out to an influencer, encouraging you to let the influencer try out your product / service, and share their positive experiences on social media, you get the benefit of a word-of-mouth kind of marketing to an extremely large group of people through the medium that has proven to be the most effective way of creating buzz about a product / service. And all that at a fraction of the cost you would have to invest if you tried to sign up a celebrity to do the same. Cool or what?!

So basically with Intellifluence, you get to promote your brand and increase sales in 4 simple steps:

  • Spotting the people with a large number of followers on social media
  • Picking the ones who you find appropriate to promote your kind of product (for example, to promote a baby clothing line you could find a mother with a huge circle of friends and followers who is actively involved in mom’s clubs on Facebook and Twitter, whose opinion other fellow moms value, and who probably owns a blog on parenting)
  • Connecting with them and letting them try out your product
  • Share their positive experience on their social media handles and blogs

Come to think of it, using everyday people to promote a product / service in this way does sound like a pretty smart idea. Good points to the people behind Intellifluence.

Some of the best features of Intellifluence include:

  • Simple, yet powerful interface that makes it easy to reach key peer-level influencers
  • Single dashboard where you can create custom overviews of your offers and requirements so that pitching multiple influencers at the same time becomes easy
  • Analytics support so you can track your progress right from within your dashboard
  • Inbuilt proprietary messaging system that lets you communicate with your influencers directly, without the need of emailing

Overall Verdict

Intellifluence makes for a great connecting platform for brands and influencers, and that too for a price as low as $9 a month even for top brands. Plus, it lets influencers benefit from cash and kind too, so it’s really a win-win tool. The only feature which would probably be great to have would be a trial package for brands wherein they are allowed to at least search for influencers and send out a limited number of pitches. This can help give them an idea of how effective the platform can be. Regardless, we loved it and would recommend it to every social media influencer out there.
