Understanding your target audience will help you choose an influencer whose followers will be relevant for your brand and can be interested on your products or services.

Step 3: Establish the terms of the collaboration

Once you have selected a suitable influencer, it is important to establish a clear partnership. This includes negotiating the terms of the collaboration -such as the campaign duration, economical retribution, deadlines and the type of posts that will be made. It is crucial to have a written contract that clearly states the terms of the collaboration to avoid misunderstandings, and also a small document or briefing that explains the key points of the promotion of your products or services, in a clear and precise way.

Step 4: Define the content of the campaign

Next step would be defining the content of the partnership campaign with the influencer. This includes determining which type of content will be created, like feed posts, Instagram stories, Reels or live videos, and how will that content integrate with your brand or product. It is important to ensure that the content is authentic and matches the voice and aesthetics of your brand, as well as the style and tone of the influencer. They must be able to create content that will take your products or services to their audience in an organic, natural way.

Step 5: Settle the divulgation terms

Transparency and honesty are key in influencer marketing. You must guarantee that you both comply with Instagram's terms and regulations regarding advertising divulgation. Make sure that the influencer clearly divulgates any partnership or collaboration with you in their posts and stories, using hashtags such as #ad, #gifted or #sponsored. Moreover, it is importan to settle clear terms about how the influencer may talk about your brand and product or service in their content, to make sure that it is aligned with your brand's values.

Paso 6: Realizar seguimiento y medir el éxito de la promoción

Once the campaign is on, it is important to do follow-ups to measure its success. Use Instagram's analytical tools and other relevant KPIs to measure the performance of your campaign, such as reach, engagement rate, generated traffic and conversions. Evaluate whether the campaign has met your settled goals and if it has generated a positive ROI. This will help you to better adjust your focus in future influencer marketing campaigns.

Step 7: Have an open communication with the influencer

It is important to have an open and constant communication with the influencer throughout the campaign. Open clear communication channels, such as e-mails o regular meetigns, to make sure that deadlines are being met and the agreed content is delivered. Maintain a positive and collaborative relationship with the influencer, offering feedback and support when needed. A solid relationship with the influencer can lead you to future collaborations and strengthen your brand's association.
