    Ways you can crowdsource content to grow your social channels
    Brands can look to Micro-influencers as a means of outsourcing the content creation process. Then they can keep working with the best ones on an ongoing basis.
  • 04:16
    Crowdsourcing content at scale
    With Micro-influencers, you can expect to pay hundreds of dollars per piece of content. You can also incentivize your customer base to create content through testimonials and hashtags.

    Results from Micro
    For informational and good quality content on products, Micro-influencers are best. For testimonials and like content, its best to tap directly into your customer base.
  • 07:48
    Content creation process for Micro
    After determining content needs using a mood board approach, the right influencers or customers are chosen. You can incentivize customers in order to use their content in ads.
  • 09:18
    Using customer shared posts without offering compensation
    While it can be done, it really boils down to attribution. Permission should be sought to reuse both customer content and content from influencers to protect your brand.

    Determining the value achieved from crowdsourced content
    You can look at the areas in which your performance increases. You can also look at the return on ad spend and social media lifts from resharing influencer content.

  • "When you go the Micro-influencer route, you can expect to pay a couple hundred to a thousand dollars per piece of content, depending on the complexity of what you're looking for." -David Morneau, inBeat Agency, Co-Founder

  • "Targeting Hispanic women aged 25 -34, is easy. You can get people that match your target audience, create content towards that audience, deploy it in your Facebook ads, and measure the results." -David Morneau, inBeat Agency, Co-Founder

  • "If you're looking to collect testimonial based content, you're gonna get much better results with people that actually love your product." -David Morneau, inBeat Agency, Co-Founder

  • "You don't want to have someone saying, this skincare cream isn't amazing, but I haven't tried it nor do I care, and this is a paid collaboration. That has a level of trust of about zero." -David Morneau, inBeat Agency, Co-Founder

  • "If you're looking to do feature-driven content, it doesn't really matter if the person has used the product before. You have to have someone that's good at creating the content." -David Morneau, inBeat Agency, Co-Founder

  • "You want to create inspiration for multiple types of content. Then, it's about finding the right influencers or clients against that type of content that you're looking to create." -David Morneau, inBeat Agency, Co-Founder

  • "Unlike the influencers where you've probably built in a clause in your contract asking for copyrights, with customers, you dont have rights to their content." -David Morneau, inBeat Agency, Co-Founder

  • "It's okay to repost an influencer's post to your Instagram page and mention them. If someone decides to repurpose your podcast to promote their network, then it becomes a bit different." -David Morneau, inBeat Agency, Co-Founder

  • "If you're dealing with your existing customers and you tick them off, that's very bad for you as a brand, right. You want to make sure that they're okay with you reusing their content." -David Morneau, inBeat Agency, Co-Founder
