Influencers will always be an effective channel to help boost sales and engage audiences. The term micro-influencer has been a buzzword in the last couple of years, but let us define who and what they are: micro-influencers have a modest following of 30,000 followers or less, but these are highly engaged audiences nonetheless. Here’s how micro-influencers may be the key to marketing success.
They have a highly engaged and loyal audience. They are a trusted source of recommendations because these are real people who are very much devoted to their craft (fashion, fitness, food, and more). Their followers are people who genuinely love their content, and their following will continue to grow.
They can tell the brand’s story. And they are masters at creating great content. They can tell a story in a personal and authentic way that will resonate with audiences. Whether it’s written content or videos, micro-influencers have great storytelling abilities that will make the brand more relatable.
They are cost-effective. A sponsored post from a micro-influencer costs significantly less than that of a celebrity or someone with millions of followers. Micro-influencers could be kinder to your budget, especially if it is a small business. While they don’t have the fan base of a celebrity endorser, keep in mind that micro-influencers can still deliver quality content and they have a tight-knit group of followers who are more likely to buy the product.
They can be found by searching one’s own followers or using hashtags. An influencer’s opinion matter very much to their loyal followers and the best ones are those who are already fans of the brand. An influencer who already uses these products is a lot more trustworthy for customers. To find them, it is better to start with one’s own followers and browse the hashtags to search for people who are already promoting this product.
