Julius product spotlight

We know the first thing most marketers evaluate on an influencer's social presence is the Follower Count, as this is a primary indicator of the impact a potential partnership would produce. After that, most likely it's Engagement Rate, which might even be more valuable than Followers. But there's certainly more to the story than what is presented on the profile–that's why we've built the Reach Tab on Julius.

For more information on the Reach Tab, take a look at this Help Center article.
