Social Media Influencers are having an increasingly bigger impact on the success of a company's social media activities - and with great reason too. Influencers are today, in many cases, the modern day celebrity with a loyal following of fans interested in their stories, opinions and day to day activities. In fact, many influencers have a higher following on the mainstream social media platforms than some of the most famous celebrities in the world.
Social Media Influencers generally have a core social media platform of choice, which is often YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter. In addition to this, it's not uncommon for influencers to cross-market their personal brand to other platforms and by doing so can often have a slightly different follower base because of this.
Unlike celebrity endorsements, which tend to be reserved for large brands, social media influencer marketing can work for literally any type or size of business. What matters is that your brand has a story to be told and a target audience base that can be reached. If you have these ingredients in place, a social media agency with a network of influencers can easily target the right type of personality to help you prmote your brand and brand stories.
