    I would love to find a tool that can give me a list of profiles with url and metrics so I can start building relationships with them. Does anyone have any software ideas for this? I know I have an ad for MP2, but it seems to be more of a wide net that pulls in a ton of garbage I have to go back and sift through.
    I am open to hear better tool ideas..

    The one and the only Majere! That deserved a thumbs up.
    With regards to the niche I had in mind,I have clients in different niches, some technical, some local mom and pop, some professional services.

    Funny I am a big proponent of the tool, office is trying it out next week for the outreach, didn't know it had the social capabilities. For now it just has Twitter and IG, would love to find some G+, FB, and LinkedIn to that list. So as of now it's semi-incomplete as a tool.
    Appreciate the reply!

    i think this is a manual job, really. i would use buzz sumo to find popular articles and the author is most likely an influencer.

    I have to agree here, it really is a manual task. There is an expensive alternative with Cision but I think they charge like $5k for a subscription to have access to the influencers in their database.

    Anyone know if Ahrefs has that capability? Huge tool, not fully aware of it's capabilities...

    Looks like BuzzSumo has the intelligence, but Ninja Outreach has the outreach system. Wish there was a tool that had both of them. BuzzSumo is $100 a month for the follow up capabilities, while BuzzSumo is $300 a month for their analysis capabilities. That's a lot of dough per month when you add Ahrefs on top of that, that's $500 in tools a month!
    Gotta find a better option...

    I guess I was also using the wrong terminology, it's Social Analytics Software, not influencer etc.

    There is a tool called Awario in the market. You can collect the mentions for your keywords (from Facebook, Twitter, Google +, YouTube, blogs, forums, reviews) and then sort the authors of mentions by the number of followers/traffic amount and react to them right from the app. Good thing is that it has 14 days trial period and unlimited number of users.
