20 Online Influencer Outreach Tools to Use in Affiliate Recruitment

Yesterday Ann Smarty tweeted:

…and her tweet (and link) gave me an idea for this post: With the plethora of influencer outreach tools out there, why not put together a list of them right here in my blog?! After all, these can be extremely useful for affiliate managers in their search for new affiliates. So here’s my (strictly alphabetical) list of 20 such tools (with the types of media they cover):

  1. BlogDash (bloggers)
  2. BloggerLinkUp (bloggers)
  3. Business 2 Blogger (bloggers)
  4. BuzzStream (all sorts of content websites)
  5. eCairn.com (bloggers and communities)
  6. FindPeopleOnPlus.com (Google+ influencers)
  7. Followerwonk (Twitter influencers)
  8. Google Blog Search (bloggers)
  9. Klout (an array of social media)
  10. Kred (social media | check out Communities)
  11. Listorious (Twitter)
  12. Ninja Outreach (an array of social media)
  13. Outreachr (all sorts of content websites)
  14. Pitch It To Me (bloggers)
  15. Respona
  16. Simply Measured (analytics tool: measures Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google+)
  17. SocialBro (Twitter)
  18. Sulia (Facebook and Twitter)
  19. Twellow (Twitter)
  20. Twitter Search (Twitter influencers)

  Bonus: MyBlogGuest.com (bloggers)

IMPORTANT: Please don’t forget about the importance of those who “endorse” you having proper disclosures (of monetary relationship if you recruit them affiliates) on their websites!

  2. Hey Ann,

    Great list of tools here! I am actually developing a tool myself for influencer outreach that I think fits nicely in this group. I’d love to have you as a beta tester when it’s ready. Just send me an email.
