What are some common tools and strategies to help grow your presence on Instagram? Are you currently using any tools?

With over 50% of the worlds’ population on social media, people are starting to buy directly from these platforms. Facebook and Instagram have launched features for this to happen.

What advice would you give to a new business that wants to gain and grow its paid sponsorships?

New businesses often make the mistake of not asking whether an influencer’s audience is appropriate for their own business. That’s why I think that businesses should perform thorough investigations into how an influencer’s content, audience, and services are in line with their own. An influencer with 1 million followers that has the right audience can benefit you more than an influencer with 10 million followers that doesn’t have an appropriate audience.

How do you think Influencer Marketing will grow among small businesses in near future?
