These smaller creators have demonstrated to brands that influencers don't need hundreds of thousands of followers to drive sales or make an impact in a market. Micro influencers are often known to know have highly engaged audiences and post niche or specialized content, which is appealing to potential sponsors.
But the more brand deals, the busier these influencers get - making it increasingly difficult for some to balance creating content and building a business all while running it all, often, on their own.
That's where talent managers come in.
Talent managers help take over certain business elements for a creator, such as pitching brands, creating media kits, reviewing contacts, and negotiating deals. In exchange for managing an influencer's business, managers often take a cut of influencer's earnings from brand deals, typically ranging from 10% to 20%.
While some managers take on micro influencers as clients, not every management firm does. Some have cut-offs of 100,000 followers or more; others only represent creators on the celebrity scale. On the other hand, not every micro influencer is ready for (or even wants) a manager.
For those who are seeking managers, though, the search for the right manager can be daunting.
