What is influencer marketing?
Influencer marketing is a branch of social media marketing that involves promoting your product or service through influencers or content creators with an established audience, expert knowledge and social influence in their niche.
Influential creators promote products or services on their own social media platforms (Instagram, TikTok, YouTube…) or blogs, ensuring product placements come across authentic and allow brands to tap into their shared target audiences.

What do influencer marketing agencies do?
Influencer marketing agencies can design and carry out influencer marketing campaigns on behalf of brands from start to finish, or just take care of the outreach and campaign management. They help to identify suitable influencers to work with, ensuring collaborations are authentic, suitable for a brand’s target audience and that the content is delivered as agreed.
What is social media influencer marketing?
Influencer marketing can be done off of social media, but most of it is carried out through influencers promoting a product or brand on their own social media profiles on Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, etc. When social media influencer marketing is done correctly, product placements come across authentic and allow brands to tap into a target audience they share with an influencer.
Why is influencer marketing effective?
Influencer marketing follows the principles of word-of-mouth marketing, which continues to be incredibly effective. Influencers or content creators have an established audience who trust their expert knowledge and recommendations in their niche, allowing brands to spread awareness about their products or services through them, while ensuring social proof.
Is influencer marketing ethical?
It done correctly, influencer marketing is ethical. But unfortunately, a lot of collaborations we come across these days are not. There are influencers promoting products they don’t use, misleading their audience and damaging the reputation of brands in the long run. Not to mention promoting activities that damage the environment, promote over-tourism, dangerous goods or activities… This is why it is really important what influencers you choose to collaborate with and also how the campaign is designed.
Is influencer marketing dead?
Influencer marketing is far from dead. The industry is actually still on the rise and proven to be one of the most effective ways to market your product or service. It just has to be done correctly — with values, authenticity, target audiences, short and long-term goals in mind.
