What Is Influencer Marketing?
Influencer marketing has been growing in popularity throughout the last few years. It is a type of social media marketing that involves endorsement of products or services by an influencer to their community. Influencer marketing is especially effective for creating brand awareness, improving brand reputation and growing brand community. All of which directly improve customer loyalty and retention, leading to an increase in revenues.
Its effectiveness is surely undeniable too. With the kind of impact influencers have over consumers' choices it's only logical that 68% of marketers collaborate with influencers, and 88% have a budget specifically allocated for influencer marketing, with the majority of firms investing between $50K - $500K annually.
Influencer marketing works because it leans on key cognitive biases such as social proof. Word of mouth has always been an incredibly effective marketing method, so much so that it has its own metric (Net Promoter Score). We trust the people we love whether it's our peers or celebrities and influencers we love. The fact that most influencers are also more reachable than celebrities makes them feel more familiar to their communities compared to celebrities. Influencers are skilled in creating content due to the nature of their work and they are trusted by their followers.
