What is Influencer Marketing?
At its core, influencer marketing is a digital marketing strategy that involves collaborating with people that are seen as influential on a particular topic. These influencers can range from the every popular brandividual, to niche industry experts, current customers, employees and more.
When you work with influencers to co-create content, you are utilizing the authority and credibility that they have built with an audience you would like to target to build further trust and brand affinity for your company.
Why Do You Need Influencer Marketing?
As consumers become increasingly numb to formal marketing messages and advertising, their trust in information from peers, social network connections and industry experts has increased. That leaves some popular advertising formats out in the cold and the brands that rely solely on paid media for amplification even colder.
By connecting with influencers and working with them to achieve mutually beneficial goals, brands can achieve multiple business objectives including:
- Create valuable relationships with influencers to advocate for the brand
- Reach new communities of buyers and even more niche influencers
- Create more, high quality content for marketing through influencer partnerships
- Increase brand thought leadership through connections to industry influencers
