Average Daily Time
To begin, influencer marketing makes use of influencers to reach out to their communities. Unlike a celebrity, an influencer is someone who has made a name for themselves through social media platforms. Consumers normally rely on reviews before buying a product or service. Hence, real content from influencers will help to build your audience’s trust and increase your conversion rate.
Next, influencers have the ability to connect with users during their “discovery” phase. The chances of their followers becoming your potential customers are high, especially if their niche is similar to yours. This trickle-down marketing approach will eventually allow you to build meaningful connections while remaining authentic.
Thirdly, influencer marketing does not have to be costly as the price of influencers varies. Working with celebrities may incur a higher cost due to a larger audience reach. The price of influencers, on the other hand, varies according to their category. Compared to placing large advertisements, the influencer marketing budget is smaller. There are also some influencers who do not take rates but instead, receive the product or service for free.
#New Content Strategy
Last but not least, each influencer certainly has their own characteristics in creating content. When creating content, they will always present their personality. For this reason, they often create relevant and unique content that their audiences like. With the interesting content being put out, it attracts and increases the interest of their audiences to try the product.
There are two ways to get started with influencer marketing.
Reach out to influencers directly.
Although directly approaching influencers may seem easier and cost-effective, this does not guarantee a successful campaign. There are several factors to be considered such as the type of influencer, the audience they have, and the minimum outreach that can be hit.
Engage an influencer marketing agency
Alternatively, an influencer marketing agency would be great to help execute campaigns. The agency can identify the right influencers and structure the strategies to play the strength of the client.
