Four tips for running a successful influencer marketing campaign.
Digital marketing channels are becoming more and more saturated as brands recognize the cost efficiencies, the consumer reach and adapt to the new way that all consumer segments are engaging with products. In 2020 alone, marketers spent an average of 51% of their marketing budgets in digital according to the Wall Street Journal. Basically if you don’t have a digital footprint, then you should close-up shop because your competitors will swoop in and take your customers. But knowing so much emphasis is being put into digital marketing, how can you differentiate and engage with consumers on a next generation level? Enter influencer marketing, a seamless way to present your brand to new audiences through creators’ profiles. According to Insider Intelligence, brands are set to spend up to $15 billion on influencer marketing by 2022. Why? People trust their peers, people are swayed by those they admire, people are simply social creatures. Case and point, in a recent consumer study by invesp, 72% of consumers said they trust a company more after its recommended by an influencer and 40% say they even purchased a product after seeing it be used by an influencer online. Connection, engagement and sales all though a single interaction from a like-minded person that made a product relevant.
