If you’ve been running influencer marketing campaigns for a while, you’ll agree that working with influencers can be tricky. 

Especially if you’re working with a number of them.

You can’t send a broadcast message to all your influencers as they’re most likely working on different projects.   

They have different payment structures so what’s applicable for one isn’t for the other. 

How about the ones with unique individual processes?

The point is it can be a lot to keep up with them, but at the same time, you have to.

Well, that’s where influencer relationship management tools come in. 

They provide everything needed to develop a strong relationship with your influencers. 

From storing crucial information to streamlining how you communicate, IRM platforms ensure you have a smooth collaboration with influencers. 

Very quickly, let’s walk you through some of the best influencer management platforms and tools on the market.
