The search engine capabilities are impressive and can match or exclude all text characters, including hashtags and emoticons (like sun emoticons to filter holiday posts, etc.) It’s very easy to find and filter creators from the crowd of influencers (literally hundred of thousands of them) and contact them in minutes.
It takes time to understand how some of the filters work, especially the exclusive ones. My first searches always had too many results but the training (provided by Upfluence) really helped. Now I filter influencers in bulk, making use of the quantitative criteria, rather than relying solely on keywords. Apart from that, the software is very reliable and effective.
Recommendations to others considering the product
It is a tool designed for social media professionals, ie. you can expect great results but it requires one or two hours of training before being able to use it properly. Compared to the previous (paid) tool I’ve used, the results of Upfluence are way more accurate, fresh and actionable.
