    I've been doing some research lately on influencer networks and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for me.

    I work for a small agency, our promotional budgets are pretty small so that cuts out many of the influencer networks such as Neoreach (minimum of $10k per campaign)

    I've done some preliminary research into
    • Skylikes
    • Exposely
    • Leap Viral
    • Influicity
    • Tapinfluence
    • Instabrand

    Exposely seems like the most likely affordable for a small budget. Tapinfluence, while costing a fair amount, is going out of their way to be helpful and may, in the end, succeed in being helpful (not at their asking price for the software though).

    Does anyone have any experience with any of these programs? Does anyone know of an influencer program similar to these? Does anyone know of alternatives to these types of programs?

    Any knowledge would be well received.

    I haven't looked into any of these, but I'd be interested in what you find OP. Let me know with which one you decide to go and what the results show :)

    Will do, looked into most of them but I'll let you know my final findings. Thinking of turning it into a blog post but I'll at least put my notes here.

    If I were you, I would just not use those services at all.

    I mean, they cost quite a bit of money and in many cases, the real influence leaders in your niche can only be reached through your own specific efforts.

    At best, those services can narrow down the pool of potential influence leaders, but as far as the actual legwork concerned to turn prospects into actual contacts that would benefit your website in any tangible way, you're better off doing things on your own.

    In fact, you only need to go on Twitter and hire a virtual assistant to do the legwork for you.

    For as little as $10 to $25, you can get virtual assistants to find influence leaders in your niche.

    You can then engage with those influence leaders, and they could lead you to other influential people.

    You have to remember, once you tap into a tight circle of influential people, they can easily point you in the right direction as far as further influence in your niche is concerned.

    The key is just to get in there and build credibility.

    As awesome as these tools may be, from my experience, they cost a lot of money and they take too much time.

    You're better off coming up with your own specific solution that is tailor-fit to your specific needs and circumstances.
