There are A LOT of influencer platforms out there nowadays. It’s pretty much impossible to keep up with them all. Influencer platforms are generally a way for influencers to connect with brands, either by applying to brand opportunities or by being put in a pool of influencers that brands can choose to contact. I’ve compiled a list of the influencer platforms that I’ve been able to find. Some of these platforms require approval to join while others are open to anyone. I organized the platforms into a few categories, too—affiliate platforms, mobile platforms, application-based platforms, inactive platforms, and all the others. My favorite platforms are marked with a star (*)!
Know of a platform that’s not on the list or is no longer active? Shoot me an email and I’ll happily update the list!
Affiliate platforms are a tool usually used by bloggers and some content creators to share the products that they love and also make a little bit of profit when one of their followers purchases a product. This is generally done by creating a unique link for the influencer that allows the sale to be tracker back to them.

I’m categorizing application-based platforms as the influencer platforms that allow the influencer to apply for specific opportunities with brands, rather than the brands selected influencers to contact. These types of platforms can be great for micro-influencers to have a chance to stand out through their application and lock down collaborations with brands that might otherwise have overlooked them.
