Top 19 Influencer Relationship Management Tools

Advertising Disclosure

We have written many articles about influencer management platforms. However, the platforms do not all provide an identical service. One area that some of the platforms specialize in is offering influencer relationship management tools.

Large firms may have to manage hundreds, possibly thousands of influencers.

Yet you can't just engage with your influencers en masse. You need to personalize the way you keep in touch with each influencer.

Influencer relationship management tools can help ease this process for you. Influencer relationship management includes anything necessary to strengthen relationships with your social media influencers. These tools can store essential information to ensure smooth influencer management in your social media campaigns.

8. Insense

Insense

Integrations: none

Channels: Instagram, TikTok, Facebook

On Crunchbase, Insense shares a to-the-point summary of their platform — it’s a creator marketplace for UGC and creator content at scale. While this description is modest, this tool has plenty to boast about. For starters, there are more than 20,000 vetted creators in their network. What’s more, over 1,500 brands rely on the platform.

The sheer number of creators in their network would be useless, though, if brands weren’t equipped to communicate with their selected collaborators. After all, the success of creator marketplaces like Insense hinges on its ability to streamline workflows. To help with this, Insense kept interface design intuitive, making it straightforward to complete common actions like finding a new creator. Then, to help you remain organized, you can add shortlisted candidates to a favorites list.

Once you’re ready to start chatting, Insense makes it easy to communicate directly with your chosen creators via the platform’s chat function. One team member can chat with as many as 50 creators in one space. To help you keep all your messages organized, you can sort your conversations using filters like delivery status and unread messages.

It’s great that its platform is so intuitive, but you can’t be glued to it 24/7. To ensure you stay up to speed with what’s going on in the Insense’s chat function even when you’re not using it, you’ll get notified via email whenever a creator sends you a message about a campaign.

That being said, effective influencer relationship management is much more than simply striking up a quick chat. If you had to send your creators a message every time you wanted a quick update, it would have the opposite effect. Insense realizes this and offers a centralized campaign dashboard where you can track key statuses like product shipments, your budget, and the results.

Pricing:

Insense offers a one-month trial with a marketplace fee, which allows you to activate one campaign for one brand. When it’s over, you can choose from three types of Self-Service plans—which you can pay quarterly or yearly—and three types of Managed Services for UGC video ads.

Key Features: Content Amplification, Search/Discovery, Automated Recruiting, Influencer Relationship Management, Influencer Marketplace, Content Review, Content Library, Campaign Management, Campaign Reporting, Influencer Analysis, Audience Analysis, E-commerce Tools, Product/Gifting Tools, Fake Follower/Fraud Detection, Payment Processing, Influencer Whitelisting, Creator Marketplace,

CrewFire is a unique, easy-to-use tool that helps you manage all your social media influencers in one place. What sets it apart is its emphasis on building and nurturing an engaged community and maximizing the presence of advocates. Instead of relying on typical social media influencers, CrewFire lets you discover brand ambassadors among your customers. 

Simply identify the people who talk about your brand on social media–you can do this by searching for relevant hashtags or using a tool like Mention. Once you’ve found them, add them to your CrewFire ambassador community.

Next, segment your community into different groups so that you can easily communicate with them. For example, you may want to create a group for top performers or one for ambassadors who live in a certain country. Then, start sending them targeted content. CrewFire makes it easy to do this by allowing you to upload content into the app and then share it with specific groups.

You can also track the performance of your content and see which pieces resonate with your influencers. With this feature you can easily modify your strategy promptly.

Furthermore, CrewFire has a built-in rewards system that you can use to incentivize your brand ambassadors.

This motivates your influencers to continue creating content and helps you build deeper relationships with them.

In April 2023, Crewfire became a part of the BrandChamp family. With the BrandChamp acquisition, Crewfire users can set up discount codes and advanced referral commission rates based on teams, rewards catalogs that integrate with their e-store, and white-labeled platforms with customizable email notifications.

CreatorIQ integrates directly with the social platform APIs and its AI-powered algorithm analyzes millions of public social accounts. There are currently more than 20 million creator accounts indexed on the system. CreatorIQ takes a “content first” approach to its discovery. The AI looks at all the discrete parts of any given piece of content—the image, the location, mentions, and even emojis—and makes logical inferences. The AI assigns each influencer an “Integrity Quotient,” which can help you discern just how authentic an audience is.

You can invite your selected influencers via email to join your network. They can register with you and go through an onboarding process. Influencers create an account, fill out any tax and compliance forms, self-identify their interests, and set up their payment options. They also connect their social accounts to your portal and authorize CreatorIQ to ingest all the data that the public APIs can’t get you. With the one-to-one connection between the account and platform, the AI can look at how many people are seeing content and make more accurate predictions as to what their reach will look like.

With CreatorIQ’s built-in CRM, there are plenty of opportunities for active users to communicate, annotate, and otherwise share information. You can share certain aspects of a campaign using private links. Furthermore, you can automate your talent pitch and approval process using templates while securely accessing proprietary data from your dashboard.

Pricing:

You must answer CreatorIQ’s “Request Pricing Now” form to schedule a call and discuss rates.

But it also has an affiliate network of over 1 million people that you can tap into to help drive sales.

Brandbassador’s business model works differently than other types of social media marketing. It relies on the power of connecting brands with customers who are already aware of and interested in what they offer. So, instead of opting for macro-influencers whose communities generally don’t engage or respond similarly to micro-influencers, they focus on connecting you with people who have a higher chance of becoming brand ambassadors and promoting your products to their audience.

Interestingly, the process by which the company can help you manage your influencer relationships is quite simple. With access to engage and partner with unlimited ambassadors, all you need to do is provide them with creative briefs for each campaign. You can track their progress, and then pay them based on the results that they deliver.

Furthermore, you can engage your ambassadors through gamification. When they complete the brand-centric missions that you set for them, they can earn rewards like points, cash, and other prizes. Brandbassador makes it easy and fun for influencers to promote your brand, which is why it’s such an effective tool.

Overall, Brandbassador is an excellent tool for managing your influencer relationships. They make it easy for you to find and work with influencers who will be excited to promote your brand.

You can group them according to topic, tier, and brand affiliations, among others.  You can also group influencers by how close you are to them. This simplifies collaboration across the marketing team. Anyone in your organization can see where you’re at with an influencer and adjust his/her approach accordingly.

Traackr offers plenty of space to customize the data you store about each influencer. Team members can add notes about interactions and save any other relevant information. All communications, including emails and social interactions, are stored on Traackr.

The platform includes a social listening tool that can track influencer content in real time. It also features a network visualization map showing how influencers connect to other people in and out of your network.
