Influencer Marking is based on three pillars.
Reach, the power of distributing a message and the number of people reached by the influencer.

Influencer Marketing is an emerging industry that is revolutionizing the way business and brands building relationships and communicate with shoppers. The central concept is an old and has been around for decades, but the term is relatively new. Did you know that people value the opinions of people they like and trust. Specially nowadays when must of our shopping and purchasing is done online, heck I don’t even get in the car to drive 20 minutes to my local Tesco store, if I can just sit in front of my computer and order online. Influencer marketing simply leverages this basic truth to create value for influencers, brands, and consumers all at once. As more companies realize the power of this practice, they’ve sought to scale their efforts by using Influencer Marketing.
The result? An increased demand for your brand and what your brand has to offer.
What is an Influencer?
Traditionally, influencers were defined as bloggers or celebrities with millions of fans. The power of these influencers was assessed according to the size of their audiences. However, as social media has evolved, it has created the opportunity for more individuals to become influencers by providing platforms for them to connect with others and earn followers.
Why Influencer Marketing?
According to a compelling Nielsen study, 92% of consumers around the world say they trust earned media, such as word-of-mouth recommendations from friends and family, above all other forms of advertising. Savvy brands have taken note of this, and they are working to harness the power of these individual voices to help them promote their products and services.
While most consumers no longer trust traditional forms of advertising, there is also a huge number who don’t even see digital advertisements anymore because of ad blocking software. How many, exactly? About 200 million; a number that continues to rise, spurred by forces such as Apple’s decision to make the latest iOS software compatible with ad block providers. Because of all this, brands need influencers to help them reach consumers.
