What is Influencer Marketing?

Basically, it is working with bloggers like me, social media influencers, or celebrities to promote your brand from their personal accounts. People in PR and Marketing agencies sometimes refer to these types of campaigns as outreach programs or native advertising. Essentially, you would work with me to design a campaign that I will execute to promote your brand to my unique audience.  These programs are designed to generate awareness, engagement, and build an audience across social media platforms.

Can we all agree that consumers hate traditional advertising? I know I fast forward through commercials, and mute ads in videos. According to Nielsen, Q1 2015 TV viewership is down 17% (a substantial 3 hours and 45 minutes per week) for Americans age 18-24. I never click on banner ads or sidebar ads. Ad blocking increased from 21 million users in 2010 to 144 million in 2014. So where are people getting their product information? Most of my purchasing decisions are made due to recommendations from friends and other trusted sources. As defined in an article by Forbes, influencer marketing functions as word of mouth (WOM) marketing with adjoining social media amplification. In a McKinsey study, WOM-inspired marketing produces 37% greater customer retention rate and twice the amount of sales when compared to paid advertising.
