Influencing the Influencer

It’s important to note that when you align with an influencer, not only do they bring their audience, they also bring their audience’s network. Because of the loyalty of their audience, an influencer could drive traffic to your website, increase your social media exposure, and help sell your product or service through their recommendation or story about their experience. With the drop in traditional outbound promotion, influencer marketing is becoming one of the most effective ways to attract customers and clients. Twenty-first century consumers can be blind to outdoor advertising, even those new electronic boards, and unresponsive to television and radio commercials and print ads. A great majority of people want to research a brand on their own and learn about it from a family member or friend. Simply put, someone they trust. Consumers trust recommendations from a third-party more often than a brand itself.    Source: Sheldon Baker, The Garner Group Influence
