In 2022 there are a huge number of ways in which creators can present content across platforms – think Reels, Tik Toks, post, stories. Work with creators who produce high quality and creative video and imagery consistently, making sure that the style and quality aligns with your brand.
Whilst Instagram remains the top platform for influencers, truly influential creators have followings on a multiplatform basis – cross reference their Tik Tok, YouTube and Twitter channels too!

A note on followers:
Whilst followers are essential to an influencers sphere, it’s important to note that a greater number of followers doesn’t equal a better return on investment. A micro influencer with 5000 followers in a niche specific to your campaign may drive more engagement and genuinely interested followers than an a creator with 500K followers, outside of your niche.
