If you opt not to use a platform or an agency for your influencer marketing then you will have to build up relationships with influencers yourself. To do this, you first need to identify the influencers that rule your niche. If you are an active online participant in your niche you may already have a good idea who are the best influencers. In other cases, you will have to carry out considerable research first. Luckily there are a variety of influencer marketing tools to help you in your quest.
We have selected 23 influencer marketing tools here that are either free or freemium. The freemium tools are tools that need you to pay to access most of their features. But, they also offer limited capabilities for free.
Here are 23 Free Influencer Marketing Tools to Find Influencers:
You can use HypeAuditor to determine the top Instagram influencers ranking by the number of quality and engaged followers.
HypeAuditor’s AI analyses thoroughly and ranks bloggers by quality followers and authentic engagement. They gather raw data from different sources, depersonalize and clusterize it. They take only real followers and likes from them into consideration. The algorithm then ranks influencers and forms the global top influencers’ lists, updated daily.
You can either select a list of the top 1000 influencers, covering all niches or alternatively break the list into one of 14 categories. In turn, you can either select influencer lists covering all countries, or select a list only including influencers from one of 17 selected countries.
HypeAuditor provides the following information about each influencer in each list:
- Their current ranking (and the change since last month for some lists only)
- The influencer’s Instagram username
- Main topics the influencer posts about
- Their audience country
- Their followers
- An estimation of their authentic engagement
If you click on any influencer, you will be taken to a page giving additional information and statistics relating to their Instagram performance, Audience Quality Score, demographics of their followers, and engagement.

5. Post for Rent
Post for Rent is also a full-fledged influencer tool. The company effectively maintains a balance between cold business efficiency and authentic influencer campaigns
There’s a system in place for brands and influencers to leave reviews for each other, and act as references. Brands searching for influencers can see these star ratings in their search results, and can click into their profiles to look at reviews left by other brands. Likewise, influencers see ratings for brands, which may affect how willing they are to work with the company.
Brands begin by creating their brief, where you can specify the type of campaign you want. However, the more boring and tedious stuff involved in the process—finding and managing influencers and their content, poring through profiles and data, researching audiences—is effortlessly accomplished via a clean and straightforward interface.
Brands don’t even need to search for influencers before creating a campaign. In some types of campaigns, they don’t have to search for influencers at all. If brands publish a Public campaign, Post for Rent notifies any influencers who match the campaign criteria through a mobile app. Those who show interest can apply directly.
If you do choose to search for influencers, Post for Rent shows you thumbnails of suitable influencers, with their ratings, a credibility score, and basic stats. You can then click on those influencers who interest you, and they are added to a list on the right-hand side of your screen. You can keep refining your search—based on influencer and audience attribute—and the list never disappears.
Post for Rent allows you to search for influencers based on the hashtags they have used in past content. This helps give better targeting.
They also offer the ability to analyze any social media account, the first report is free. This provides the perfect first step to making informed decisions in influencer marketing.

12. Social Crawlytics
Social Crawlytics allows you to track content and competitors. You can use it to discover which posts are the most popular and shared on particular websites.

When we talk about influencer marketing we rarely think about podcasting. But podcasting has grown dramatically over the last few years, and quite a few influencers now host their own regular podcast show.
The easiest way to listen to podcasts on iOS devices is via iTunes. On Android, Stitcher is a well-rated app for this purpose.
But, these apps are not so good at helping you find the most influential podcasters in your niche.
Podbay.fm is useful because it ranks podcasts within various genres. Search for the category that best fits your niche.
You may want to find a podcast that uses an interview format so you can request the host to add you to the relevant podcast’s interview list.
If it is not obvious from the description on Podbay.fm whether a particular podcast uses an interview format or not you can search for the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher. You can then check its format and suitability for your purposes.

Be aware, though, that the free Testing version only allows you to match up 100 people and 100 companies per month. The lowest of the paid levels, Starter, allows 2,500 people and 2,500 companies per month (for a $99 per month charge). If you wish to find and record details on potential influencers on the free plan you will need to be careful which accounts (and lists of contacts) you link to Full Contact, to keep within your limit.
SEOquake is a free browser add-on you can use for quite a few SEO purposes. It includes the SEObar which you can use whenever you go to a website of a potential influencer.

While you won’t be able to find any influencers using Personapp you can use it to help you determine the types of people you should search for to be influencers.
If you have received any marketing or sales training you will probably have had the importance of personas drummed into you. You are always told to draw up personas for your ideal customers. Manufacturers are also encouraged to draw up persons of the ideal users of their product.
The same can as easily be done for influencer marketing. If you spend time thinking up the persona of your ideal influencer, it could save you a considerable amount of time. Too many businesses have waste time and energy chasing after influencers who are not ideal for their business.
Just because somebody exerts influence online does not mean that they will be of real benefit to your business. For influencer marketing to be successful you need to find influencers who influence the types of people who make up your target audience.
Personapp helps you to create personas for your ideal influencers. It leads you through the persona creation process step-by-step, covering such factors as behavior patterns, goals, needs, attitudes, beliefs, workflow, skills, and environment.
20. Similar Web

Obviously, you will want to use other tools to determine which potential influencers’ sites you wish to investigate first before you use up your free allocation of Similar.web research.
Buzzsumo is very much a freemium product. You can use it for free, but the limited results shown by the free account quickly leaves you wishing you had a paid version.
Buzzsumo is excellent for showing what is popular on social media. It can show you which content any business shares most, which is great for checking out what was successful for your competitors. Alternatively, you can search by niche. It will show you which items of content were shared most on social media about particular topics.
However, Buzzsumo does more than that. You can also use it to see who has had content shared the most. It includes an Influencers and Outreach section which allows you to find, analyze and follow influencers. You can sort this in many ways to determine who are the most important influencers on social media in your niche.
You should probably concentrate more on influencers’ domain authorities than on their followers. If you want to build up a relationship with an influencer you also need to ensure that he or she has a reasonable retweet ratio – something near 20% or higher. If he/she doesn’t retweet then you are unlikely to be able to encourage that person to share your material.
You can only see the top 10 influencers in a list with the free license, though. You might consider taking out the short-term free trial of the premium version to give you more time to find influencers.

What to Do When You Find Potential Influencers for Your Brand?
Influencer marketing is a great way to connect with a target audience and drive engagement. It is also a great way to build a relationship of trust and collaboration.
Once you use these free tools to find influencers who are relevant to your niche, here are four tips to help you get started:
1) Connect with them on their social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
Social media is a great way to connect with potential influencers and get to know them better. By following them and engaging with their content, you can start to build rapport and develop a relationship.
Take the time to get to know them and build rapport before asking for anything. Always be respectful of their time and space, and do not bombard them with messages. If you show that you are sincere and genuine, the likelier they will work with you in the future.
2) Verify their influencer credentials.
As influencer marketing continues to grow in popularity, more and more businesses are looking to jump on the bandwagon. However, influencer marketing is not without its challenges, and many businesses make avoidable mistakes that can jeopardize their campaigns.
One of the most common mistakes is failing to verify an influencer's credentials. With so many influencers out there, it can be tempting to work with anyone who seems popular. However, it's important to make sure that an influencer brings relevant value to your brand and that their audience demographics are relevant to your products or services. Otherwise, you could end up wasting time and money on a campaign that doesn't generate any results.
3) Create content strategy goals for your influencer campaign.
Before you start reaching out to influencers, it's important to have a content strategy in place. What are your goals for the campaign? Are you looking to increase brand awareness, drive traffic to your website, or boost sales?
With a goal in mind, it will be easier to pitch your campaign to your future influencer. Once you've decided on your goals, be sure to include information about your content strategy and how it can help them achieve their own goals.
4) Make a proposal for engagement and collaborations.
Once you have shortlisted and vetted influencers for your brand, you can prepare to make a proposal for engagement and collaborations.
A well-crafted proposal is essential when pitching to an influencer. You'll need to demonstrate that you understand their audience and have something valuable to contribute. Be specific about the topics you're interested in, and be sure to offer something of real value—either through content or engagement.
Keep in mind that influencers are busy people, so be respectful of their time and resources. If you can make a strong case for why working with you would be beneficial, you're more likely to secure a collaboration.
Influencer marketing is a great way to reach a target audience and generate positive sentiment. However, it is a complex and time-consuming process that requires a thorough strategy and a lot of patience.
There are influencer marketing tools out there that have more features that can make your life easier, but they come at a price. If you are just getting started with influencer marketing, or if you are working with a tight budget, these free tools can help you get the job done.
More importantly, be sure to think about the end goal of your campaign before you start reaching out to influencers. If you want to increase brand awareness, you will want to look for an influencer with a large following. On the other hand, if you are looking to drive sales, an influencer with a high engagement rate will be more effective. With these factors in mind, you can be sure to choose an influencer who will generate the most press for your brand and help you reach your business goals.
