your Research team applied the following Strategy:

We commenced our research by examining blogs and media reports such as Heepsy, NinjaOutreach,, Feedspot Blog, and other similar sites. On Heepsy, we were able to locate the "Top 10 food influencers in Montréal in 2019".

As per Heepsy's "Use of sophisticated classification algorithm, we obtained an ordered list by theme (fashion, fitness, food), country, and city with the top 10 influencers of each segment to offer information about Instagrammers, YouTubers, Bloggers etc. who have achieved the greatest reach, both by the size of their audience (the biggest influencers have millions of followers) and their quality in terms of engagement." Based on these factors, we have taken the list of food influencers from Heepsy as the base of our research.

Following this, we checked all the popular social media to find the influencers accounts/profiles such as Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat. Later, we scanned their posts to identify their contact details.
