Whether you are new to Klear or already have campaigns up and running, sometimes you may have an external list of influencers you want to import into your Klear influencer database. Your list could include influencers you’ve met in person at an event, or DM’d through your brand’s social accounts. In Klear, you can import these influencers into your database either manually, or in bulk.

Learning Objectives:

Within Klear, My Influencers serves as your personal influencer database. All influencers you’ve worked with, tagged, added custom variables to, or recently viewed will be accessible here for you to manage. When you upload profiles into Klear, you can import them directly to a campaign or your My Influencers database.

When uploading influencer profiles in Klear, you can either upload manually or in bulk, and both will be in a CSV format. For bulk imports, you’ll have the opportunity to also include any custom information you’ve gathered (like product preferences, birthdays, and more) to include in their profile page. So make sure you compile any additional information you’d like to include beforehand.

Preparing Your External List

Gather your external influencers lists to prepare for your upload process.

For Manual Profile Uploads:

  1. Compile the usernames for each influencer across each network to have at the ready.

For Bulk Profile Uploads:

  1. Download the provided CSV Influencer List Template, filling in all desired information.

  2. For a successful CSV upload, you MUST include “Network” and “Username” for each influencer on the list, and these should be the first columns in the template.

  3. Update your file with any desired additional information, including Full name, Email address, Phone number, Home address, Note, Custom Variables, and Tags.

  4. Use the Custom column to capture details such as birthdays, hobbies, or shirt sizes. You can customize your template and add as many Custom fields as you’d like. (For example, “custom: birthday”, “custom: hobby”, and “custom: shirt size”).

  5. Use the Tag column to apply tags to each influencer. For example, “tag: photographer”, “tag: high engagement”. Include an “x” next to each influencer you’d like assigned with this tag.
