Influencer Marketing is everywhere these days and is rising by the minute. Brands will actively look for influencers who have a large following to help promote their brand, product or service to their audience aiming to attract sales, brand awareness and social media attention of the product.

This is where Facebook has stepped in and have officially launched their Brands Collabs Manager dashboard making it easier for brands to contact influencers and start a connection between them.

How does this work? Let me tell you!

Brands and Creators can both sign up to the Brands Collabs Manager. Think of this as Google for finding influencers and creators. Brands can use this to find influencers who have worked with similar brands in the past based on their demographics of their target audience and their previous content creation. They can also use this engine to search influencers based on their interests, events and even personal details such as relationship status and education background.
