Julius Product Spotlight:

High-quality content and strong numbers are quick to come across when you look at an influencer's social profile–they're the hallmarks of initially determining if an influencer might be a good partner. However, we want our customers to go beyond this and discover insights to tell a fantastic story. We built the Engagement Tab so you can get a full understanding of 'what works' for the influencer. For more about how to leverage the Engagement Tab, see this Help Center article.
