Top 5 Best Instagram Sponsorship Websites:
In this post, I’ll review and talk about the top 5 Instagram influencer marketing platforms that you can consider for growing your brand awareness and reaching new audiences (this is our 2020 update).
Influencer marketing platforms, especially those targeting the 1 BILLION monthly active Instagram users and other social media platforms, have boomed over the last few years. It’s been a race by startups to see who can build the largest database of brands and influencers, have the best features for facilitating collaborations between the two parties and optimising the best business model for growth.
5 Best Instagram Sponsorship Websites:
1. AspireIQ (formerly Revfluence)
AspireIQ is a software solution for brands looking to build influencer relationships and content at a significant scale.

The platform has four components:
1) a database of hundreds of thousands of influencers with high engagement and audience size
2) CRM software to coordinate with hundreds of influencers
3) an analytics dashboard to track performance per influencer/content by things like sales, followers driven and engagement

Instabrand brings more of the agency approach to the influencer marketing mission. Their campaign managers help craft the right message and engage the influencers on your brand’s behalf. Going by their Rolodex of impressive past customer logos, the concierge strategy is working for them. However, this might be out of budget for the smaller business. Also, whilst their company’s name references Instagram, it seems they also put a big focus on Snapchat as a platform.
Personal note: I think it’s incredibly exciting to see Instabrand put such a highlight on Snapchat. With 100M daily active users, Snapchat is fast becoming a platform of choice for marketing to millennials.
