Ten Instagram Mom Influencers for Your Back-To-School Campaings

Students are probably already thinking ahead to when the bell rings on the last day of school before summer break. But smart marketing teams are thinking ahead to when it rings again, marking the start of a new school year. Because when it comes to back to school marketing campaigns, it pays to plan ahead.

Back to school is a tentpole event and attracts big advertising dollars, but consumers are more savvy than ever before. They’ve grown accustomed to the Skip Ad button. The solution? Get your back to school message in the content as opposed to before the content.

Content creators can help. 

For back to school, few content creators are better equipped to help get the message out there than “momfluencers” and other family-focused creators. 

With that in mind, here are 10 momfluencers dominating Instagram with their child-friendly hacks, tips, and tricks. Many of these creators already work extensively with brands, so marketers can rest assured their back to school message is in good hands.
