Are you new to Instagram shoutout or looking for a trusted way to purchase shoutout at low cost? You are in right place. Shoutout or promotion post on Influencer page can help you and your brand to reach out targeted audience at a lower cost then Instagram advertising itself. Instagram influencer marketing is only good if you choose right Influencer for your promo and get a better deal. There are lots of fake Instagram influencer you have to avoid, to make most out of your shoutout campaign. Here I am going to share my personal experience with Shoutcart.
What is Shoutcart?
Well, Shoutcart is a marketplace for Instagram and Twitter shoutout where the buyer (Marketer and Business owner) can buy shoutout from Influencer on Twitter and Instagram just like buying physical products on Amazon. Instagram and twitter Influencer on shoutcart list their profile and offer about shoutout deal which is accessible easily if you sign up for an account on Shoutcart and it is free for the buyer without paying any monthly subscription fee. You will only pay what you see on Influencer page and on your selected offer, there is no hidden cost.
Benefits of Shoutcart
Most of the Influencer don’t sale shoutout openly, even in the marketplace because of reputation with their followers. Those types of Influencer is only available directly and through Influencer Agency. You have to find and contact them manually which take lots of time and those Influencers are also price. That’s why there is Influencer Marketplace where Influencer lists their offer to get Promo deal which helps them to make some extra money.
Below are the four benefits to choose Shoutcart Marketplace over finding Influencer Manually and working with Influencer Agency.
1. Handpicked Influencer
It is important to verify Influencer listing to manage and run marketplace like Shoutcart to build a reputation with marketer and business owner. All of listing on Shoutcart is listed by Influencer itself and verified by Shoutcart support teams. Shoutcart also uses Twitter and Instagram authentication for Influencer listing to keep track of their account performance like engagement rate, reputation score, which very important to look for when you a purchasing Instagram shoutout.
2. Low-cost shoutout
You can buy Instagram shoutout on Shoutcart as little as 2$ which is very cheaper than any others medium of advertising where advertiser pay more than 2$ per click (CPC cost) on Social media advertising. Now, you must be asking what will you get in 2$ and answer is It depends on Influencer which you choose. 2$ is the lowest cost of an Instagram shoutout on Shoutcart where Influencer will post your promo post on their profile for a limited time like 2 hours.
3. Direct Deal with Influencer
Everything on Shoutcart Marketplace is transparent where you will see all details about Influencer profile. It is not like working with Influencer agency which protects Influencer profile from the public until you become their customer. Influencer Agency works as a middleman between advertisers and influencer, it is also expensive to work with an agency. According to Forbes Influencer agency charge 30% of advertiser advertising budget which is ridiculous.
4. Trusted Marketplace
