What is influencer marketing? Simply put, it is a relationship between a trusted figure on social media (the Influencer) and a product or service.
The influencer promotes the product through different media platforms like Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube. An influencer typically has a large audience of 10,000 or more followers and has knowledge or appears to have knowledge of what they are promoting. There only requirement for an influencer is “trust.”
influencer marketing is like word-of-mouth advertising gone viral. 92% of buyers turn to their peers for advice and word-of-mouth advertising accounts for a big percent of all purchases – so you can see the “influence” that influencer marketing can generate. It is like a recommendation from a friend.
