exactly what is influencer marketing?
A decade ago, the influencer marketing arena was limited only to celebrities and a few dedicated bloggers. Now, it seems like we’ve seen social media influencers rise, saturate the market and even get caught up in fraud.
At a fundamental level, influencer marketing is a type of social media marketing that uses endorsements and product mentions from influencers–individuals who have a dedicated social following and are viewed as experts within their niche. Influencer marketing works because of the high amount of trust that social influencers have built up with their following, and recommendations from them serve as a form of social proof to your brand’s potential customers.
when you decide to invest in influencer outreach programs , there are some common mistakes we help you avoid.
Not Defining a Goal for Your Influencer Marketing Campaign - some marketers make the mistake of launching an influencer marketing campaign without a set goal in mind.
Choosing the Wrong Compensation Model - The right compensation model can get you a long way with your influencer marketing campaign. But choosing one that doesn’t fit your budget or goals could result in huge losses.
Being Enticed by Audience Size Alone - This is easily the biggest mistake marketers make with their influencer marketing campaign. They think that just because an influencer has a massive following, they’ll have the maximum impact.
Being Overly Restrictive with Content Creation - You may have seen celebrities or influencers promoting a product and listing it's features and benefits. And in many cases, the way they mentioned the benefits may seem a bit off – like it was overly scripted and unnatural.
Failing to Maintain Transparency - Another big mistake brands make with their influencer marketing campaign is failing to disclose their partnerships. In an attempt to maintain authenticity, they fail to ensure their influencers are disclosing their partnerships.
Ignoring Experts - While this sort of advertising is designed to be easy, there's a lot of expertise required to make good campaigns great. Only a specialist in digital marketing will be able to point business owners in the right direction when it comes to optimization, targeting and a plan for long-term growth.
