Checking reviews of the products or say a buying the one where a famous celebrity was using it, it all plays a major role in influencing our decisions. This is called influencing marketing. The ones who influence our decisions are called influencers.
Influencers are different from content creators because their focus is on engagement and community-building. They tend to have large followings (100,000+) that trust their recommendations. Influencers commonly include YouTubers, reviewers, and bloggers.
Their content might not be as insanely high-quality as a content creator, but it’s still engaging and interesting.
Influencers are also content creators. The main point is that the quality of this content differs from person to person.
While content creators are in it for the art , influencers build communities for the purpose of connecting and helping their followers, which means occasionally influencing an audience’s decisions of purchasing certain products.
And it works: 74% of people trust their social networks (which include influencers) for recommendations more than they trust branded content.
