As specialists in social media monetization and strategy, it’s our goal at Adwizar to help brands benefit through influencer marketing. Influencer marketing has been rapidly growing in popularity over the years as social media has become more prominent. Many companies and brands are even choosing to market their products through influencers and content creators instead of through traditional marketing methods. We truly believe that influencer marketing is becoming the new content king and we’d like to share with you a few reasons why.
When a company tells you how great they are, that’s nearly meaningless to a potential buyer. In fact, consumers actually trust recommendations from strangers over brand messages. After all, every company will gleefully go out of their way to let you know all about how gloriously stupendous their company, their product, and everything that has to do with them is. A recommendation from an influencer means so much more because the influencer doesn’t seem so biased. The influencer or content creator appears like a neutral third party who doesn’t have a stake in selling you a product.

While a brand promoting a product may lead to a certain amount of sales, an influencer promoting that same product will lead to anywhere from three to ten times more sales! Influencer marketing won’t just save you time and money – it will lead to more sales as well.

Whether influencer marketing is truly on the path to becoming the new content king or not, plenty of brands and companies have already decisively bought in. It’s suggested that about two-thirds of brands participate in influencer marketing and have an active strategy in it. The types of companies that are involved in influencer marketing goes across the entire spectrum, though it’s most prevalent in the food, parenting, and lifestyle industries.
