Analyze, Sort, and Select the Right Match Based on Smart Results
- Smart Interests
Easily recognize interests that are considered most engaging by an influencer’s followers. Influencers with high performing posts about the interests you specify are ranked higher in the search results, meaning the right match is closer than ever.
Also pay attention to the strength of an influencer’s interests, indicated by both order of the interests and the intensity of their color. This allows you to get a quick overview of the importance and legitimacy of their interests straight away, so you can make sure they get consistent interactions on topics that matter to you.

Allowing you to easily identify top performers, Influencer Score takes into account key engagement metrics such as Sum of Interactions, Interactions per 1k Followers, Number of Followers, and posting activity.

Avoid Untrustworthy Influencers Through Performance Analysis
The Transparency of a Business Profile Badge
Without a business profile, an influencer is unable to prove their success, meaning partnerships with them will be less transparent and less secure. Any influencer clearly marked with a pink business profile badge in Suite can be monitored using Socialbakers’ analytics and customized dashboards. Click “Add Profile” from an influencer’s details and you’ll be on your way to deep analysis of their social performance.
The Honesty of the Engagement to Follower Ratio
Asking the right questions from your data can help you decide whether an influencer is legitimate. Look at the follower growth over time, as well as the Engagement to Followers ratio. Does the influencer have steady growth, or can you spot unusual changes in audience size?
Is their follower growth marked by suspiciously big surges or dips? Do they have a large follower base, but you see their engagement is dwindling? Benchmarking the performance of influencers over a longer period of time in this way can help identify anomalies associated with fraud.

The Perspective of Interactions per 1K Followers
Fake accounts and fraud can lead to disappointing performance numbers, meaning brands don’t always benefit from the authenticity characteristic of influencer marketing.
Consulting the Interactions per 1k Followers metric allows businesses to understand an influencer’s engagement in relation to their audience size on a more granular level, so they can know whether an influencer’s content is truly making a real impact with real people.
In the case shown, this influencer has almost 70k followers, which could indicate success at first glance. But scrutinizing interactions using this metric, you get a more accurate picture of how low engagement on this profile actually is – not even 1 percent. This insight should encourage second thoughts when engagement is a key objective.
