How do you segment your influencers for outreach?

Do you know this practical infographic from Traackr: The Many Faces of Influence - you may be able to spot some famous US digital marketing commentators there!

We're sharing this as a useful infographic because it prompts you to think whether you're making the most of opportunities to encourage different types of online influencers to share your branded content.

Segmenting influencers into different types will help you prioritise types of influencers to monitor and interact with. It should be a core approach to support your content marketing, SEO and social media marketing. Remember that Content Marketing is two words - it's not just about creating content, but marketing it!

The infographic covers the '3Rs of influencers' to help prioritisation, these are:

  • Reach (Audience size)
  • Resonance (Engagement power with audience)
  • Relevance (Contextual fit)

Often it's natural, to start by using Reach, but although many 'A list' influencers may have good reach, they don't offer relevance to your theme or resonance. We find working with 'B/C' list influencers is more practical for this reason.
