Top Parkour Influencers
Parkour influencers also have strategies to reach more followers, they also use digital marketing. And, whether you are a traceur or a brand interested in Parkour influencers, you are interested in knowing how to evaluate and compare Instagram accounts.
As you can see on this image we have grouped the accounts by number of likes. Why?
Because if we only group them by engagement, it is normal that accounts with fewer followers have the highest scores.
It is a constant that is repeated, accounts with fewer followers have more interaction from their followers. It seems that when the number of followers grows, participation decreases.
Therefore, one way to identify Parkour idols on Instagram would be to group the accounts by likes received.
The comparison of followers in Metricool allows you to analyze up to 100 accounts at a glance, just as you can also do it with YouTube, in this case you can analyze up to 10 channels.
Therefore, and if you want to thoroughly investigate what techniques your competitors use or how to know which influencer to hire for your influencer marketing strategy, the competitor analysis will be your best ally. It is fast and shows real data.
