There's no point in onboard an influencer whom your target audience doesn't know or they don't relate to. So, understand the likes and dislikes of your target audience first, and on that basis choose an appropriate influencer.

2) Define The Goals: Before starting an influencer marketing campaign, first, make sure what you want to achieve through that campaign. A clear goal definition is very necessary for any influencer campaign.

A goal can be to gain followers or to gain leads or engagement for the product/service of their brand. Based on the goal setting, define the KPIs for the campaigns.

3) Budget Allocation: Influencer marketing is a costly marketing strategy but highly effective in terms of the ROI. Conduct market research on different types of influencers and their creative costs per campaign.

Based on these factors allocate the right budget and execute your influencer marketing campaigns.

4) Shortlist Your Influencers: Based on your goals, target audience, and budget, shortlist the most appropriate influencers for your brand and prepare a campaign guideline for them.

Post shortlisting, classify the shortlisted influencers into micro and macro and assign the KPIs for both sets of influencers. Any creative digital agency in Lucknow or anywhere else also makes use of different influencer marketing applications to connect with influencers.

5) Campaign Ideation: Once you have shortlisted the influencers, create the campaign strategy and its distribution for the influencers. Ideate the content type for the campaign and set the standards.

Based on the campaign ideation, finalize the different social media platforms where influencer marketing will be executed.

6) Negotiate With Influencers: Once you have shortlisted the influencers then reach out to the influencers with the campaign objectives and offered remunerations. Make sure you communicate the requirement clearly to the influencers.

After negotiating with the influencer concerning terms and prices, prepare an agreement that defines all the terms regarding the collaboration and finalize that with the influencers.

7) Campaign Launch: After everything is finalized launch the influencer campaign on all the decided social media platforms and make sure that all the guidelines regarding content and communication are met and make the amendments accordingly.
