Some 52% of the marketers surveyed say they have implemented a process to vet influencer accounts for bots/fake followers, and 16% say they work with a partner that handles fraud detection.
Two-thirds of respondents say social media platforms need to do more to combat fraudulent activity, and 35% say some of the influencers they work with may have purchased fake followers.
Marketers say what they look at most when considering influencers for campaigns are the content on the account (89% check it), the engagement rates (81%), the audience demographics (73%), and any pre-existing brand affinities (61%).
