            📝  Your guide to finding bloggers in the UK

            There are three main ways to find influencers: searching for them on Google, trying to find them on social media, or by using an influencer search tool. Let’s review each option briefly!

            1. Manually finding UK blogs on Google

            The simplest way to find UK blogs is to search on Google – you probably have already tried it! You can search for keywords like UK blog, UK blogger, UK lifestyle blogs, UK fitness blogger, or London fashion blog – the more specific you are, the more relevant search results you’ll get.

            2. Searching for bloggers on Instagram and TikTok

            Most bloggers are also active on social media, at least Instagram and TikTok – so you can also search on these channels! The easiest way to find UK influencers is by hashtags. Here are some hashtag ideas that you can try:

            ▸ #ukblogger, and #londonblogger
            ▸ hashtags containing cities – such as #london, #manchester, and #manchesterblogger
            ▸ niche hashtags, such as #ukfashionblogger and #ukmomblogger

            You can also search by location. For example, you can check London, Manchester, Liverpool, and other bigger cities – but also popular restaurants, cafeterias, and other places influencers go to.

            When you’ve found an Instagram influencer that you’d like to work with, you can check profiles that are similar to theirs. For that, 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. This way, you will be given a list of similar accounts that you might be interested in!

            3. Using influencer search platforms

            As finding bloggers manually might be very time-consuming, we’d recommend using an influencer search engine – such as Promoty! Our Influencer Discovery gives you access to our global database of Instagram and TikTok influencers with a wide set of filters.

            If you’re searching for UK-based bloggers, you can set the influencer’s location to the United Kingdom or London and make the word ‘blogger’ compulsory in their bio. Additionally, you can narrow your search by the influencer’s followers, age, interests, and other criteria.

            If you’re searching for bloggers with a UK audience, you can filter our global database by the influencer’s audience. This way, you’ll find collaboration partners whose audience matches your target group!

            Additionally, you can narrow your search by the influencer’s followers, age, interests, and other criteria. If you’re looking for bloggers, just type “blog” or “blogger” in the Keyword in bio filter. If you’re looking specifically for, let’s say, lifestyle blogs, add “lifestyle” as a filter.

            If your brand’s target audience is 25-34 yo women, set the Audience filters accordingly. That helps you to find exactly the right influencers for your brand 🤍
