Finding influencers is hard. No matter how big or small the campaign, which category you’re focused on, or what part of the world you’re trying to reach out to; brands and agencies alike agree finding the perfect influencers is an incredibly time-consuming process.
At influence.co, our goal has always been to build products that make the process of building, managing and executing influencer campaigns as painless as possible. So today, we are proud to announce our next innovation aimed at simplifying influencer marketing. Influencer ENGAGE by influence.co is a Chrome extension that lets you identify, analyze and save influencers you find while surfing the web.
By installing the free Chrome extension, every time you’re looking at a webpage with one or more Instagram or Twitter user mentions, we’ll let you know when we have additional information on them. Information can include full social media reach breakdowns, locations, and engagement scores. You’ll quickly be able to determine just how influential the people you’re reading about are.
Furthermore, if you see an influencer you might want to work with you can Favorite that account and come back later to connect with them. Influencer ENGAGE works with users who both have an influence.co profile as well as over 50M Instagram and Twitter accounts who might not have one yet.
Let’s face it, spending time finding influencers sucks. Our goal was to make it suck less. We think we did a pretty good job with this one. Check it out, and install for free here.
One of the most frequent questions we get at influence.co is how our community members can help promote themselves to get more exposure for brand and influencer collaborations. Today we’re launching a set of features to help you do just that! Whether you have a blog and want to link back to your profile, you’re working with a journalist and they want to show off your stats in their article, or you’re working with an agency who wants to represent you appropriately on their site, we have a feature for you.
We now provide branded influence.co badges that allow you to link back to your profile and easily share your influencer resume. Wherever you already link to Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Bloglovin’ or other services, you can now link similarly to influence.co. We are rolling out various versions in the next week including automatically adding reach statistics as you can see in the example below. Once you install it on your blog, any changes you make will go live on your blog right away. Badges look like this:
Want to take your influence.co profile with you or give it to someone else to publish in an article, blog or on a website? Now you can with embed cards. Embed cards lets you configure a quick overview of your influence.co profile and grab a snippet of HTML that can easily be placed on any website. The results are dynamic and always update. Here is an example of a live card:
You can find all of these features from your profile page just by clicking the “Promote” menu item in the top right menu where your picture is.

Swimsuits, sunsets and vibes for days, or a week in fact. influence.co hosted newMARK Models in the influence.co House earlier thi…
As the sun rose so did the influencers and people of Los Angeles. Some from their beds with nothing but a single sock left on, others from the shadows of street lights as the moon disappeared and the LA fog made the realization of staying up all night all too real.
Normally dizzy vision, fuzzy memory and a thumping headache would be something to convince yourself you were never going to drink again. However, for this particular day, it was encouraged, for this means you accepted the challenge to take your heftiest hangover to the Influence house for the ultimate recovery experience.
Upon arrival the choice was seemed clear- retox or detox? For some the decision was instant. Detox with a catered brunch and unlimited Resqwater, followed by a massage from Soothe and an IV drip by The Cure LA, then finished by the pool on an Azza daybed, enjoying the view of the city from the top of Mt. Olympus. Others chose a direct route to retox with champagne, a bloody marry bar, and libations from Fliquor Bean, Voco, Perfectomundo, and in some cases all of the above.
Regardless of which road Influencers chose to take, the bonds formed were apparent for everyone . Brands and influencers became associated, social campaigns were formulated, and a total media reach of over 7million was aggregated. If you were there spot and share your photos below. If you weren’t, bask in envy and relive the event vicariously. Click on each photo to check out more.

Today we’re pleased to officially announce the ability to find influencers by both location and category. Since we launched the general search feature, over half of our searches have contained a category location. This was a short term solution until we could put a more robust location feature in place. Despite its limitations, it has been an amazing indicator of how valuable it can be to narrow searches to a location.
