For those types of campaigns, a smaller influencer (think 10,000-50,000 followers) who focuses on a specific audience linked to your sector would be a better fit.[/highlight][/size] [size=4][highlight=transparent][img width=624]https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/9IFa0TkFlgGyrDwjNn_fIMuF6MXGyQhI-yMUVGOctnzPaACwUqRLgprWu0IHG5Hv4J8v_zQrGTupjQ1GwzfhbZCGuHxfgXU3uQQhNUATHTV9NjlX7pM6CQK4eHwqMLKqLEElYukn[/img][/highlight][/size] [b][size=4][highlight=transparent]Check to see if their followers are genuine.[/highlight][/size][/b] [size=4][highlight=transparent]Examine an Instagram influencer's comments and interactions to see if their following are genuine.
