Instagram content creators. What sets them apart from the rest? We say it’s a combination of their awesome content and the fact that it’s delivered on the platform that revolutionized photo and video creativity. Instagram.
As a brand, of course, you want a piece of that Instagram pie. Sure, other competing platforms such as TikTok appeal to the younger generations, but Instagram is still a force to be reckoned with. In fact, when it comes to engagement, Instagram remains one of the strongest of all social streaming services.
Content Creator/Influencer Marketing: Why Engagement Rate Matters
Without getting too technical, the engagement rate is crucial because it affects the reach of an Instagram post. This has something to do with the algorithm. The higher the engagement rate, the wider the reach.
Side note: Engagement rate statistics aren’t always easy to come by… unless you’ve joined us on Afluencer 😉 As long as a content creator has shared their social links with us, you as a brand can view this information in their profiles. Alternatively, you can find Instagram content creators using our engagement rate filter.
Does all this talk about Instagram and engagement make you wanna say, “I do” to Collabs with Instagram content creators? We’re not surprised!
Here’s our selection of candidates for your potential Collab match made in Afluencer heaven.
