3 Ways to Take Advantage of this Update

Easy access to the interactions you’ve every Influencer who has had an interest in working on your campaign opens some great opportunities for you to find ways to work with more influencers in more ways.

Here are three ways you can put the new features to work for you:

1 – Simply reach out to Influencers you’ve rejected. Suggest a bid amount that you think is appropriate and invite them to re-bid. To do this, sort the list by “Rejected”, click on a profile and then click the “View Conversation” button to view the message thread and send a new message.

2 – Let the Influencers with Pending bids know why you haven’t accepted or rejected them yet. Is it budget? Is it testing? Do you have a long list of bids that you need time to clear? Take a few minutes to shoot them a message so that they don’t feel forgotten or lost in the shuffle. They’ve taken an interest in working with you, even if they aren’t a good fit now, you want to keep the connection for future opportunities.

3 – Review the bids you’ve Rejected or those that are still Pending. Is there another way you could work with some or all of them? Maybe they don’t fit your blog post Opportunity, but could they help you generate buzz by sending a tweet that you prepare for a set fee, like $5? Come up with a new Opportunity, set it up in the campaign and then message the Influencers in the Pending and Rejected lists with a link to view the Opportunity and submit their bid.
