There are online marketers who are pessimistic about the whole idea and they don't think that these big people would even want to talk about something they haven't heard of.
It is not really that impossible to do. There are ways by which you can get the attention of social media influencers to talk about your brand or business.
The first way that you can catch their attention is by sharing some of their content. When you are in social media, public posts can easily be shared. One of the ways of informing them that you have shared their post is to tag their username in your post. Keep on doing this and perhaps you will be noticed by the influencer and give you a chance to dialog and then you can ask for help in promoting your products.
For every post that they make, give a comment or join in the discussion. Some of these influencers read comments of their followers. There are some that respond too. You will never know if the influencer will be affected by your comment and catch his attention.
If you have some products to offer, you can give these social influencers a freebie and ask them for a feedback. You can ask them for their comments and better still, you can ask them with a review of your product. With this link building strategy, your product page can be linked to their social media account or website.

If you give all your efforts at these means, then you might just become one of these social media influencer in the future.
