I'm just reaching out to see what experiences people have had with instagram influencers?
I run an ecommerce store and haven't had much luck and have used a range of influencers with genuine followings of 5k-50k. Their posts didn't really change the impressions on our profile, nor did it affect link clicks or engagement for us.
I also had a hard time budgeting for spend on influencers - their prices seem to lack consistency, I've had an account with 12k followers asking for $700 for a post and another account asking for $800 with 10x the followers at 120k.
Regardless... there's word FB is beefing up the way they deliver ads via Instagram and have changed their alogrithm so that posts are delivered not in chronological order, but in relevance order - e.g. posts IG thinks you'll "like the most".
For me - that might mean I'd be better off spending $800 on a saavy social media marketer rather than a 1-post "wonder".
I could be wrong though! Would love to get some discussion going around this
