Tomoson.com represents 40,000+ influencers and micro influencers in a wide range of industries, who love to review and create social buzz for Brands. When creating a campaign, you will be able to select what kind of niche you would like to review your product.
Studies show readers trust the blogs they read and brands can submit free products to bloggers for a minimal cost. Bloggers may influence 1000’s if not millions of people that see your product review and make a potential decision to purchase your product. In short, the cost of getting your product in front of millions of people via influencer marketing could be the cost of one free product. Now that’s an ROI anyone can live with.
After the free trial period we charge a monthly subscription fee based on software usage.

When determining your marketing budget remember to include the cost of the product, shipping costs and payments to influencers for their work.
 
Free trials are limited to one per brand and a maximum of 10 campaigns. Creating more than one account or more than 10 campaigns during the free trial period is cause for account suspension.
For sponsored campaigns Tomoson recommends multiplying an influencer’s total reach by .003.  This is the industry suggested budget price.  For example:  an influencer with a total reach of 100,000 multiplied by .003, the suggested rate is $300.  Pricing can be negotiated up until the influencer is approved.
 
Total Reach is the sum of an influencer's social channels.
Total Reach = website visitors + Facebook friends & likes + Twitter followers + Youtube subscribers + Instagram followers
 
Tomoson tracks the total number of engagements (likes, shares, comments) for a set of recent posts created by an influencer. The total engagements are then divided by the total number of posts in the set. This results in the influencer’s recent average engagement score. The score estimates the number of engagements you might get when working with the influencer.  Brands can narrow their focus to average engagement per social network using the filters in Tomoson.

Use the message center to communicate with influencers to:
  • Clarify information regarding your campaign or product

  • Address influencer concerns about the product, coupon codes, shipment, or the campaign in general
 
Messages including but not limited to the following are not allowed and are subject to deletion.

  • Solicitation and advertising of product or service
  • Offering to work or pay influencer outside of Tomoson platform or requesting any action that violates Tomoson TOS
 
Accounts consistently using the message center inappropriately are subject to suspension.
 
Tomoson advocates honest reviews about products. Tomoson will not mediate negative Tomoson ratings if an influencer gives a business a negative review. 
Tomoson considers a task invalid if:
  • it is obvious that the influencer did not test the product
  • the post is obviously for a product other than what was provided to the Influencer
  • the post is an obvious copy/paste of information from the brand site 
  • the link submitted is not valid, does not direct to the actual post, or is not from the site specified for that task

If you feel a submitted task falls into one of these categories, contact Tomoson customer support.  Include the campaign ID#, influencer's name, invalid task, and URL of the post you feel violates Tomoson's policy. Tomoson Review Team will investigate and take appropriate action which may include but is not limited to the removal of the influencer’s task verification
Yes. When a campaign is created you can set prerequisites to exclude people you prefer not to work with.
Yes. Each Brand sees a list of the people who have applied to their campaign, their URL, and other relevant statistics important for a good online campaign.
When running a campaign, you can tell a person where they can link to IF they want to. It is not required that people link to you because it's against Google policy. Most people will work with a brand to help in any way they can.
You can approve as many influencers as you wish. However, the number of people you approve and send product determines your monthly subscription fee.
Campaigns are normally approved within 24 business hours (during the business week). We manually approve all campaigns before they go live, so please adjust your marketing and shipping schedules accordingly. If you submit a campaign on Friday, please make sure you allow the weekend to go by before it's approved.
Once your campaign has been approved by our review team,  it is live on Tomoson.com for anyone searching the Internet to see. Campaigns are also indexed and found via Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines.  If you would like your campaign page to have a no index/no follow tag, contact Tomoson support.

  • Physical products sold on your ecommerce website, third party website, or brick & mortar store
  • eBooks and apps
