📝 Your guide to finding top influencers in Sweden
1. Manually finding influencers on Instagram
There are three ways for finding influencers on Instagram: from your customer base, manually on Instagram, or using an influencer search platform. Regarding the second option, influencers can be searched by relevant hashtags, locations, or similar profiles.
a) By relevant hashtags
You can find popular influencers using hashtags: make sure to check relevant hashtags both in English and Swedish. Here are some hashtag ideas that you could check:
▸ #swedishinfluencer and #svenskinfluencer
▸ hashtags containing cities – such as #stockholminfluencer
▸ name of the country, such as #sweden, #svensk and #swenska
▸ #reklam – “advertising” in Swedish
▸ #samarbete – ”collaboration” in Swedish
b) By location 📍
When influencers post on Instagram, most of them also add the location in order to get a higher reach. That’s why it’s smart to search for different locations in Sweden!
If you’re looking for Sweden-based Instagram influencers, it’d be smart to check Swedish cities with a population of at least 100K: Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, Uppsala, Västerås, Örebro, Linköping, and Helsingborg.
c) Similar profiles
When you’ve found an Instagram influencer that you’d like to work with, you can check profiles that are similar to theirs: click on the little 🔽 button next to the “Message” button on their profile when on mobile or the little arrow button next to “Follow” when on desktop. That gives you a list of similar influencers you might like!

2. Using influencer search tools
As finding influencers manually on social media is way too time-consuming, we’d recommend using an influencer marketing platform. For example, Promoty is a tool that makes finding influencers a lot easier: you can use our influencer search engine to find relevant influencers for your brand.
If you’re searching for Sweden-based influencers, you can set the influencer’s location to Sweden. In case you’re looking for Scandinavian influencers in general, you can also add multiple countries.
If you’re searching for influencers with a Swedish audience, you can filter our global database by the influencer’s audience. This way, you’ll find collaboration partners whose following matches your target group!
Additionally, you can narrow your search by the influencer’s followers, age, interests, and other criteria. For example, if you’re looking for Swedish fitness influencers, type “fitness” in the Keyword in bio filter. If you’re looking for creators with a YouTube channel, add the keyword “YouTube”.
For every Instagram and TikTok influencer, you can also see their engagement rate, average likes, audience demographics (age, location, gender), brand affinity, most-used hashtags, followers’ credibility, previous sponsored posts, followers’ growth over time, similar profiles, and much more.
