1. Give Them the Right Assets

Influencers typically prefer highly visual, short content. Therefore, it is important to give influencers easily shareable content for best results.

2. Find Them in Your Data

It is easy to spot influencers in your data because of how they tend to forward information. One way to spot them is to keep your eye out for emails that have been opened several times over 2-3 days.

3. Tag and Track Them

One way to track information is to use persistent uniform resource locators to see where the influencers are sending your information. This is an excellent tool because sharing information tends to represent a higher interest level than a download or click-thru analytic.

4. Sell Them on the Idea, Not the Solution

When pitching your business to an influencer, it is important to attempt to make your idea or solution become their idea. Influencers tend to be the most successful when they shine in front of their followers and peers. However, suppose you are presenting the whole picture and solution to an influencer. In that case, it is possible for them to feel threatened.

5. Give Away Ideas

Giving away free advice will most likely serve you in the future. Being generous will come back to help your business and others in your work.

6. Use Them to Remove Blockers

Influencers are masters at selling. They will help lead the buyer through all stages of the purchasing journey and will help reinforce the reasons why they are making the correct buying choices.

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.

He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.

An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.

One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
