Businesses today are trying to stay a step ahead when it comes to branding and marketing strategies. 

One of the way brands are doing that is by turning to influencer marketing and they have seen great results according to statistics provided by Mediakix in their 2019 Influencer Marketing Survey.

To summarize, the survey found the following results:

  • 71% of marketers rate the quality of customers and traffic from influencer marketing better than other marketing sources.
  • 89% of marketers say influencer marketing ROI is as good or better than other marketing channels
  • 65% of marketers plan to up their influencer marketing budgets in 2019.

Why do you think there is such a demand in the influencer world?

Simply put, influencers are known for their one-on-one relationships with their audience; they usually do not have a product or software, but rather are their product.

They are real human beings, living real lives, just like you and me. 

Customers can relate to them; they feel like friends, so they are drawn to and listen to what they have to say. 

According to Branding Strategy Insider

"...six human attributes that attract others to them, even though they have no authority over others: physicality, intellectuality, sociability, emotionality, personability, and morality. These six attributes constitute a complete human being, one who typically becomes a role model. When brands want to influence customers as friends without overpowering them, they must possess these six human attributes."

Influencer marketing enables brands to build trust and it also helps to expand their audience reach.

The below infographic, provided by Influencer Marketing Hub, shows that it is still very effective 2019.
