The main activity in influencer marketing campaign are identifying who are the right influencers, asking them to market your product, and designing a long term relationship in which both parties work together.

Online, social media networks are great places to find these people. Look for people with large friends lists. Bloggers can be a powerful channel and can get you visibility in front of hundreds or thousands of readers who can all become potential customers.
