As a digital marketing consultant, I often work on influencer marketing projects for my clients. Therefore, I am always on the lookout for good influencer marketing agencies and platforms.
HypeAuditor is one of the top platforms for influencer discovery and vetting. I tried it some time back, but wanted to use it for a few months before writing a review.
Therefore, this HypeAuditor review is based on my personal experience of using the platform.
Want to know which features I like the most?
Well, my favorite thing about the platform is the depth of reports that it provides. HypeAuditor assesses each influencer on 35+ metrics and also weeds out any fake influencers.
I also like the accuracy of the results that it provides through its Influencer Discovery Hub and the advanced filters to streamline the results.
If you are looking for an advanced tool to find and vet influencers, then HypeAuditor will not disappoint you. Overall I love the tool and this HypeAuditor review will tell you why it is one of the best in the industry.
I used this platform for a few months before writing this HypeAuditor review. In this section, I will review all of its key features in detail and mention the ones that I like the most.
Ready to read my comprehensive HypeAuditor review?
Let’s get started…
Here are the four main features of HypeAuditor, along with the reports and insights provided under each section.
1. Influencer Discovery
HypeAuditor, at its core, is an influencer discovery platform that you can use to find Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok influencers. It currently has a database of over 18 million influencers.
Its Influencer Discovery Hub has advanced search filters that allow you to search for influencers by performance metrics, audience, demographics, etc.
Want to know the best part?
It has platform-specific filters that help you finetune your search results and find the most relevant influencers.
Wondering how that works?
Let’s take a closer look.
HypeAuditor can help you find Instagram influencers by number of followers, engagement, and posting frequency. One unique filter that it provides is Audience Quality Score (AQS), which lets you find influencers based on their audience.
Another useful filter is “Similar as” that helps you find influencers similar to a particular influencer. This is useful if you have successfully worked with an influencer and want to find similar influencers.
HypeAuditor’s YouTube influencer discovery dashboard has more engagement-related filters than for any other platform. You can filter your influencer search results by average views, comments, reactions, etc.
Just like AQS for Instagram, it has a Channel Quality Score (CQS) filter for YouTube. This gives each influencer a score between 1 and 100 based on their influence, audience quality, channel credibility, and viewer engagement.
This is a fairly new addition to the HypeAuditor’s Influencer Discovery Hub and helps you find the best TikTok influencers for your brand.
Just like the filters for YouTube, this also has filters for followers, engagement metrics, and content.
Pro Tip: Use the generic filters first and then apply more advanced filters to narrow down your search results.
2. Influencer Vetting
Once you find influencers based on your selected filters, you need to vet the influencers before you choose the ones you want to collaborate with. HypeAuditor helps you with that.
HypeAuditor provides detailed influencer reports with valuable performance and engagement metrics to help you choose the right influencers. You can assess your influencers on 35+ metrics and then select the best one for your brand.
Earlier, these reports were available only for Instagram and YouTube influencers, but now you can also get TikTok influencer reports.
TikTok is an emerging social media platform and few influencer marketing tools help you to find and vet TikTok influencers. Therefore, I wanted to give an additional thumbs up to HypeAuditor for including TikTok on their list of platforms.
Here are some of the key areas that HypeAuditor considers to vet influencers.
HypeAuditor allows you to vet an influencer based on their audience quality and demographics. You can use this to identify the influencers whose audience matches your target customers.
Some of the key metrics in this category are:
- Audience Quality Score
- Audience type
- Age, gender, ethnicity, language, etc.
This shows the yearly follower growth of influencers and identifies mass follow/unfollow patterns. This helps you to detect fake influencers and avoid working with any unauthentic influencers.
I particularly like this feature because working with fake influencers can lead to a waste of time, money, and resources. Moreover, the wrong influencers can also cause damage to your brand’s reputation.
Wondering how it does that?
It does not just check the number of comments, but also checks the authenticity of comments.
Many inauthentic influencers use bots to comment on their posts to improve their engagement rates. Working with such influencers will not help you reach the right audience, even though the engagement metrics may seem high.
HypeAuditor identifies inauthentic comments and, thus, weeds out fake influencers.
One unique and extremely useful feature of this platform is that it provides you with an estimate of how much an influencer is worth.
What does that mean?
It means that you can see an estimated dollar value that the influencer should charge per post, based on their performance metrics. This gives you an idea of where you can start your negotiation if you want to work with an influencer.
Apart from these, the report also provides details on posting frequency, influencer mentions on social media, advertising performance, etc.
Another additional feature is that you can create influencer lists for future use. This helps you quickly find influencers for your campaigns without going through the process again.
Pro Tip: Create multiple influencer lists by topic or category to save time for influencer search and vetting for future influencer campaigns.
3. Performance Tracking and Reporting
Just like the influencer reports, you can track the performance of any Instagram account. You can use this HypeAuditor feature to see your account performance and growth on the metrics mentioned in the influencer reports section.
Additionally, you can compare up to five accounts to benchmark your performance against that of your competitors. I really like this option as it helps me stay updated on my performance.
But, that’s not all!
You can also track your influencer campaigns and get performance reports for them. You can find these under the Campaigns tab on your dashboard.
Want to know the best part?
These reports are shareable and HypeAuditor provides whitelabel reports option, so you can add your logo when you share them with a client.
Wondering what kind of metrics you will get?
Here are some key influencer marketing KPIs that you will find in your campaign reports:
- CPE (cost per engagement) and CPM (cost per thousand views)
- Total likes, clicks, comments, reactions, etc.
- Audience reached
- Audience type and quality
- Total expenditure
Pro Tip: Leverage the account comparison feature regularly to keep tabs on your main competitors.
This HypeAuditor review won’t be complete without the mention of this value-adding feature as most influencer discovery platforms don’t provide this.
You can also find an option to create a report for detailed competitor analysis in HypeAuditor’s Research Hub.
Want to know more about the Research Hub and the reports that you can get?
Let’s discuss these in more detail.
Industry Trends and Analysis
You can find top Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok accounts for any industry and location.
You can also find the most-mentioned accounts or the trending accounts in any industry. You can also see which of these have witnessed a steady follower growth directly from the dashboard.
I particularly like the fact that follower growth is visually-represented in the form of a line graph within the table. I don’t need to open the report for each influencer and can easily compare accounts right from the dashboard.
This is another additional feature that lets you analyze the influencer marketing campaigns of your competitors. You can see which influencers they work with, analyze the creatives that they used, and how much they spent on the campaign.
You can also find your competitors’ top-performing content and the audiences that they target.
Here’s a picture to give you an idea about the kind of metrics that you can expect.
Pro Tip: If you are new to influencer marketing, check what your competitors are doing to get ideas for your campaign.
