How does the prospecting feature work?
The prospecting feature helps your brand find and collaborate with creators who may not have discovered your brand on the platform yet.
How it works:
- Log in to your Social Cat account.
- Under the "Prospecting" tab, click on "Generate Prospects."
- By default, this will generate 20 prospects, based on your creators' preferences, available under "Edit Campaign."
Check each creator's profile, and if you'd like to work with any of them, send them a proposal.
The proposal can be for any collaboration: paid, affiliate, or gifted.
For the creators you're keen to work with, we recommend sending a proposal for a paid collaboration to grab their attention. The system will also suggest a fair amount for the paid collaboration based on creators' metrics and other KPIs.
- After you send the proposal, you'll need to wait and see if the creator accepts it.
- If they do, it's a match and will be listed under the "Collaborations" tab at the top of the "In Progress" column. You can also head to the "Inbox," and you'll be able to communicate with them.
What are the advantages of the Prospecting tool?
- Discover creators that have not found your brand yet: creators on our platform get many opportunities, and sometimes, it's easy for your brand to get lost in these. With prospecting, you can increase your chances of working with them.
- Better matches: even more chances to find better matches for your brand.
- Stay ahead of the competition: the more prospects you can reach out to, the more chances you have to start a campaign with them ahead of your competition.
Which should I focus on more, opportunities or prospects?
We advise working with both features to increase your chances of working with the ideal influencers; there's no right or wrong here, and the best results are obtained when both features are used in parallel.
