About the Influencer Recommendation Engine

Extending the reach of a social message via influencers is an important way for existing Hootsuite users to fulfill their marketing and PR goals.

Influencer Marketing is word-of-mouth at scale. Influencer Marketing means that a brand collaborates with social media personalities – like YouTube Creators, Instagram Influencers, and Bloggers – to create engaging content and to explain a product or service to their community and fans. It is one of the most valuable forms of marketing, as brands can tap into the trust of these key opinion leaders. Nielsen Reports indicate that 20-50% of all purchasing decisions are influenced by word of mouth: recommendations made by friends, family, or social media personalities. It comes as no surprise that 92% of consumers trust personal recommendations more than advertising.

Getting started with Influencer Marketing has never been easier:  Amplify your message with help from influencers your audience trusts using Fourstarzz Influencer Recommendation Engine for Hootsuite.

Now anyone can harness this influencer marketing power right inside Hootsuite. The Influencer recommendation engine quickly creates a customized influencer marketing campaign proposal. You get guidance on social channels to choose, content types, publication tactics, and even estimated campaign results like reach, engagement, and Estimated Earned Media Value.

If you like the suggestions, you can reach out to the influencer’s talent manager via the Fourstarzz app. No obligations or costs are involved until you finally sign a contract with the influencers or the connected influencer talent agency.
