Influencer Marketing. Five years ago this was a buzzword in the digital marketing world, and one that wasn’t exactly understood or taken to seriously. Over the last few years, brands and agencies alike have realized the critical element of using social proof through influencers to leverage their presence and brand.

I owe the growth of my brand and client list to my social influence as a wellness food blogger on Instagram. Early on, I picked up how to work with brands and have also seen the growth of influencer marketing. With that, I saw first hand exactly how brands approach influencers, what they expect, what works and doesn’t work.

Want to tell your story through the people that matter the most to your audience? In today’s world, it’s not just about what you say – it’s about who’s saying it. Influencer marketing strategies involve finding the most powerful people on social media whose audience is relevant to yours and getting them to talk about your brand. But, let’s be real, social media is saturated by “influencers.” It seems like anyone and everyone can be an influencer. So, how do you curate a good list? It comes down to seeing not only how many people follow them, but also their engagement rate. In fact, you should focus more on the engagement rate rather than the follow count. Micro influencers have more influence power over their highly engaged audience, over pepe that have thousands of followers and low engagement rate.

By leveraging the power of word-of-mouth marketing through influential people, you can drive KPIs of all kinds, be it brand awareness, community growth, website traffic or sales.
