Influencer Marketing Software and tools help to locate and connect your brand to an influencer's audience and publication in some capacity. These tools provide marketing departments with data about which content is performing best and which influencers to connect with.
An "influencer" is a content publisher that already has a sizeable following online and through social media. It can take many months, even years, before new content publishers are discovered and avidly followed, irrespective of the content's quality.
