Let’s say, Ankita Chaturvedi is a makeup influencer, so if I want to buy a lipstick or anything related to makeup, I will look up to her page or her videos, to get a more clear idea about what I get to buy. It is not just limited to makeup, but also extends to food, lifestyle, fitness, etc., the list is endless. Influencers are also like a customer to the brand, just that they will promote the product after using them on their own. They have in-depth knowledge about products, brands, and how effective they are.
According to a recent study, in 2018, Google received 61,000 search queries for the term “influencer marketing”. The same study also revealed that influencer marketing was considered effective by 92% of the respondents.
