Work Exclusively With Brand Safe Influencers

A significant number of influencers adhere to the rules of their social media platforms to avoid content moderation issues. But is this entirely true? Not necessarily. Social media platforms also profit from the rapid growth of content creators, and they sometimes lower moderation levels for bigger influencers, occasionally permitting content that a brand might not want to be associated with.

By operating our own app for influencers, where they register with our platform, we can conduct these tests to filter out those who do not meet brand safety criteria.

Thus we offer searching on a database of influencers that are foreseen to meet basic safety standards.

How to Protect Your Brand When a Crisis Comes?

Social media crises are notorious for flaring up on Friday afternoons, aren’t they? Unfortunately, this can also involve brand ambassadors or influencers who are currently participating in or have just completed campaigns. To protect your company effectively, the most crucial aspect is understanding the crisis and monitoring the influencers’ accounts for any potential warning signs.

indaHash’s Crisis Detection Scanner allows for 24/7 monitoring of selected influencer accounts to identify any negative activities that could damage your brand’s image. Any suspicious activity, such as inappropriate language or negative sentiment in publications and comments, will trigger a warning to be sent to you. This allows you to take necessary countermeasures promptly.

Ambassador programs - protecting your campaign with Competitor Post Check

Ambassador programs should respect the exclusivity clauses in contracts with creators. Many brands do not tolerate competitors, and sponsors often prefer ambassadors not to promote competing brands.

In theory, it seems straightforward. However, in practice, without a tool, it can be challenging to determine:

  • If the influencer has previously published content about a competitor
  • If the influencer will continue publishing about competitors after the program has started

This relatively simple tool allows past searches and sends warning emails about competitor posts. This helps make informed decisions and monitor potential future violations based on the relationships of your chosen influencers with your competitors.
