Many marketers are banging their heads against the wall wondering why influencers won’t return their emails or promote their programs. The reason? Small mistakes can often have a big impact. To help make your influencer marketing a winner, we have tapped 15 top marketing influencers for reasons they've not responded to a request and included 25 ways to help you win.

Influencer Engagement: 15 Ways to Fail & 25 Ways to Win
If the internet has taught us anything, it’s that when you
fail, everyone from your grandmother to your boss will
know by the end of the day. Maybe you didn’t think twice
about the email that you sent to Janice in Accounting
asking for her to complete a large task with an impossible
deadline. Unfortunately, the joke is on you. She is going
to tell everyone she knows.
Sure, that type of personal experience is painful, but
imagine how much worse it would be if you made
the same type of mistake with an influencer outreach
email. That type of mistake can seriously damage your
credibility with that influencer, their friends and their
online community.
Many marketers are banging their heads against the wall
wondering why influencers won’t return their emails or
promote their programs. The reason? Small mistakes can
often have a big impact.
Marketers, we feel your pain and we want to help!
While we can’t keep Janice from shooting daggers at you
from across the office, we can help you fail less and win
more with influencer engagement.
To help make your influencer marketing a winner, we
tapped 15 top marketing influencers and asked them
to share their biggest reasons for not saying yes to an
influencer request.
TopRank Marketing’s experience creating influencer and
content marketing programs for some of today’s most
successful brands can also help you win with influencer
marketing. We’ve condensed these into snackable tips
to help you create better relationships and provide more
value to the influencers that you’re currently working with,
and those that you want to begin working with.
What do you say? Are you ready to find out how to fail
less and win more with influencer marketing?
WILL YOUR INFLUENCER MARKETING
FAIL HARD OR WIN BIG?

“I get requests from people I know really well every
week. What makes you think I’ll make time to work with
you if I’ve never interacted with you before? Take some
time to comment on my posts, rate my podcast, review
my book. I’ll return the favor in a heartbeat.”
INAPPROPRIATE
ASKS.

“As in asks for promoting your product (books,
webinars, conferences, etc.) in exchange for affiliate
revenue; please DON’T.”
TOO SOON.
KIM GARST

“My pet peeve is when someone follows me on
Twitter or Instagram and/or fans me on Facebook and
immediately reaches out to me with a request to check
out their business.”

Influencer Engagement: 15 Ways to Fail & 25 Ways to Win

  • 2. If the internet has taught us anything, it’s that when you fail, everyone from your grandmother to your boss will know by the end of the day. Maybe you didn’t think twice about the email that you sent to Janice in Accounting asking for her to complete a large task with an impossible deadline. Unfortunately, the joke is on you. She is going to tell everyone she knows. Sure, that type of personal experience is painful, but imagine how much worse it would be if you made the same type of mistake with an influencer outreach email. That type of mistake can seriously damage your credibility with that influencer, their friends and their online community. Many marketers are banging their heads against the wall wondering why influencers won’t return their emails or promote their programs. The reason? Small mistakes can often have a big impact. Marketers, we feel your pain and we want to help! While we can’t keep Janice from shooting daggers at you from across the office, we can help you fail less and win more with influencer engagement. To help make your influencer marketing a winner, we tapped 15 top marketing influencers and asked them to share their biggest reasons for not saying yes to an influencer request. TopRank Marketing’s experience creating influencer and content marketing programs for some of today’s most successful brands can also help you win with influencer marketing. We’ve condensed these into snackable tips to help you create better relationships and provide more value to the influencers that you’re currently working with, and those that you want to begin working with. What do you say? Are you ready to find out how to fail less and win more with influencer marketing? WILL YOUR INFLUENCER MARKETING FAIL HARD OR WIN BIG?
  • 4. OUT-OF- THE-BLUE ASKS. ANDREW DAVIS Founder, Monumental Shift @TPLDrew “I get requests from people I know really well every week. What makes you think I’ll make time to work with you if I’ve never interacted with you before? Take some time to comment on my posts, rate my podcast, review my book. I’ll return the favor in a heartbeat.”
  • 5. INAPPROPRIATE ASKS. CARLOS GIL Head of Global Social Media, BMC Software @CarlosGil83 “As in asks for promoting your product (books, webinars, conferences, etc.) in exchange for affiliate revenue; please DON’T.”
  • 6. TOO SOON. KIM GARST Best Selling Author & Keynote Speaker @kimgarst “My pet peeve is when someone follows me on Twitter or Instagram and/or fans me on Facebook and immediately reaches out to me with a request to check out their business.”
  • 7. USING THE WRONG CHANNELS TO COMMUNICATE. JASON MILLER Group Manager, Content Marketing & Social Media, LinkedIn @JasonMillerCA “Sending me a message about LinkedIn using Facebook.”
  • 8. IMPERSONAL PITCHES. CHAD POLLITT Co-Founder & VP of Audience, Relevance @ChadPollitt “When companies send out generic en masse pitches, like a robo-call, but via email. The personal touch can make or break an influencer’s decision to engage.”
  • 9. LACK OF CREDIBILITY. LEE ODDEN CEO, TopRank Marketing @leeodden “Competition for effective influencers’ time is high, so reaching out using a Gmail address and pointing to a little known brand hosted on a hyphenated domain with poor design isn’t going to motivate anyone to engage.”
  • 10. LAZY DUPLICATION. JOHN JANTSCH Founder, Duct Tape Marketing @ducttape “When you get that really interesting Tweet inviting you to take a look at something and then when you click through to it you also see that they have composed basically the same message to 579 other people on Twitter.”
  • 11. HEIDI COHEN Chief Content Officer, Actionable Marketing Guide @heidicohen “Reach out to me directly yourself. Do NOT delegate this critical step to your marketing agency, PR professional, team member, assistant or intern. Do it yourself and make your note personal. If you want me to respond, I expect you to do the asking yourself.” DELEGATED & IMPERSONAL.
  • 12. EXPECTING TO GET WITHOUT GIVING. JOE PULIZZI Founder, Content Marketing Institute @JoePulizzi “Not greasing the skids. Influencer’s are most likely to add commentary if there is some kind of existing relationship. This means at least some kind of history where the person reaching out has already been sharing the influencer content.”
  • 13. CLOAKED SALES PITCH. ARDATH ALBEE CEO & B2B Marketing Strategist, Marketing Interactions @ardath421 “Asking for 30 minutes of my time to discuss a “partnership”– which actually means you want me to sell your stuff to my clients.”
  • 14. ASK THEM TO SELL. GERRY MORAN Global Head of Social Media, Cognizant Technology Solutions @GerryMoran “Your influencer is there to help you increase the awareness, association and consideration of your brand in a certain space – not to shill for you.”
  • 15. TOO MUCH FOCUS ON THEIR BRAND. TED RUBIN Social Marketing Strategist, Evangelist & Acting CMO, The Rubin Organization @TedRubin “Don’t tell me your story, let me tell my story. ‘LESS fabrication, MORE facilitation’ = a boost to your Return on Relationship, #RonR.”
  • 16. ABUSING THE KINDNESS OF AN INFLUENCER. BRYAN KRAMER President & CEO, PureMatter Brand Marketing & Interactive @bryankramer “Set the tone and rules upfront. Influencers can’t be expected to take part in everything you do, so say that. Set the ground rules and expectations.”
  • 17. SPAMMING INFLUENCERS. GLEN GILMORE Principal, Gilmore Business Network @GlenGilmore “Signing up for an app that spams your “top influencer” with automated messages is a sure path to a rocky relationship.”
  • 18. FAILURE TO FOLLOW UP. REBECCA LIEB Principal, Conglomotron LLC @lieblink “Not following up with that blog post, ebook, or copy of the interview the influencer contributed to. Influencers are indeed interested in seeing the fruits of their labors.”

  • 26. “Manage influencer expectations by providing a reasonable deadline according to the complexity of the ask.” - @TopRank

  • 30. “Build a solid foundation with influencers by showing appreciation for their contributions.” - @TopRank
  • 31. “Sometimes, you get what you pay for. Big commitments with popular influencers often require compensation.” - @TopRank
  • 32. “To instill confidence in the influencer relationship, always follow up once they respond.” - @TopRank
  • 33. “Make your influencers look good by providing copy edits that help provide clarity of message.” - @TopRank
  • 34. “Always give influencers appropriate credit for their contributions. The appreciation will inspire more shares.” - @TopRank
  • 35. “Make collaboration natural for influencers by allowing them to cover topics that resonate with their community.” - @TopRank
  • 36. “Being thankful for an influencer’s contribution goes a long way towards a lasting and productive relationship.” - @TopRank
  • 37. “Create a good experience for influencers by managing communications in an organized way with clear direction.” - @TopRank
  • 38. “People work for a living, but they will die for recognition. Influencers are no different, so always give positive reinforcement.” - @TopRank
  • 39. “If an influencer is not responding to standard outreach, get creative with a 3D mailer, customized web page or video.” - @TopRank
