What is influencer marketing?

Influencer marketing is a popular social media strategy where businesses work with high profile people (or “influencers”) in their industry, who will create posts sharing the brand’s services or products to their followers.

Using influencers can be incredibly powerful and take your brand to the next level, as their followers know, trust and love the content they create. If you’re looking to increase brand awareness, sales and even user generated content on your social media platforms, then influencer marketing could be the strategy for you. 

Benefits of influencer marketing
