Influencer Marketing Gone are the times when celebrities and brand ambassadors were the only real influencers in the industry. Long gone. Thanks to the rapid advancements in the field of social media, celebrities aren’t the only ones with great influential power and following.
In this time and age, people want an influencer they can trust as well as relate to. People like you and me, maybe. An influencer, by definition, is a person with a good social media presence and great follower reach. Someone who, as the word implies, can influence people.
Instagram, YouTuber, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, and even LinkedIn –– all these platforms, while they are geared toward different audiences, are perfect for influencers.
Here’s why Influencer Marketing continues to be an effective strategy for brands:
Collaborating with celebrities still remains effective. These celebrities likely have a great fan following, from all walks of life, from all industries. Is that bad? Not particularly. But not all of these followers will be relevant to your brand.
Now, an influencer with a relatively modest number of followers is more likely to have a more filtered list of followers, most of whom would fall under your brand’s target audience. Spending a reasonable amount collaborating with such an influencer may prove more rewarding than spending an inexorable amount to partner with a celebrity would. An influencer who shares your brand’s values evidently brings a better return on investment.
This one’s a no-brainer. Influencer marketing is a great way to boost brand awareness in the digital community. Their social media presence can help your brand reach a vast number of people, a great lot of whom could be your potential customers. It’s the best way to reach your target audience.
It’s no surprise that most people turn to product reviews for their purchasing decisions. Influencer marketing is a way of building on that but in a slightly more organized manner. Influencers are known for their unbiased and honest opinions and brands can make the most of that.
A brand endorsed by a respected influencer can fortify the brand image and strengthen credibility in the market.
Ensuring 100% engaging and unique communication or the content week after tiring week is difficult. Collaborating with an influencer means sharing that burden with someone just as competent and respected as your brand. Combined efforts, resources, and creativity can be the formula for success. Influencers, when they talk about your brand, initiate a ripple effect. This can result in higher engagement rates with slightly reduced efforts. Begin with giveaway contests. There’s a reason they’re all the rage in the community.
