What is Influencer Marketing?
Influencer marketing involves brands partnering with the top bloggers (read: social media influencers) in their fields to create more engaging and authentic content. This content is then shared in the influencer\’s circles, promoting the brand\’s products and services without seeming too focussed on sales.
In simpler words, it’s promotion through word of mouth.
Influencer marketing has become one of the most powerful tools to get a brand’s message to the relevant audience in an authentic manner. Be it promotion of a new product or an event to raise brand awareness, it’s a tried and tested way of driving in maximum engagement (from quality traffic).
Today, you see many brands like even Disney and LEGO successfully incorporating blogger promotions in their marketing strategies. And well, they have been doing it for a reason. That being, content. With content marketing on the rise, brands might run of ideas to create posts but these bloggers (read: influencers) are always going to come up with content that’s not just real, but authentic and unique.
