02 Aug Why Influencer Marketing is Essential for Your Family Brand
Building brand trust
Online influencers are known for their connection to their audience. Once influencers become long-term advocates for your brand, you will see their followers become inspired and this is when you create brand trust. Instead of just selling a product and generating sales, they create relationships, brand awareness, and trust with a targeted audience.
Getting your money’s worth
This marketing strategy is an incredible value for the cost. In most cases, content is created by the influencer, which reduces overall production cost for the campaign. Additionally, influencer posts perform significantly better than brand posts. The average engagement is more than double that of a traditional brand post. Most influencer collaborations generate such a great return on investment because they create a profit on a campaign faster than traditional methods, while also becoming a lasting ambassador.
Reaching a niche audience
When you work with influencers who have strong relationships with their audience, you get an exact landscape of the group that you are reaching. Brands can even select specific influencers to collaborate with based on their reader demographics and reach. Whether it’s stay at home moms, females ages 19 to 28 or business professionals, they know their followers and the best way to engage them.
Out of the box thinking
Working with influencers often leads to more creative ideas and inexpensive content creation. When you approach an influencer about working with your brand, they often suggest ideas and come up with creative ways to shake things up, causing their followers to become more engaged. They know what is trending in the influencer market and are dedicated to promoting a product they believe will have a positive response from their audience. After all, they do this for a living and will often think of something your marketing team has yet to uncover.
