If you’re an entrepreneur looking to grow your brand, here’s how to win at influencer marketing.75% of brands dedicate precious budget dollars to influencer marketing, but the marketing medium is not cheap. The average cost of influencer marketing depends on the type of influencer you’ll work with.
Work with the Right Influencers82% of consumers are more likely to follow a micro-influencer recommendation. Don’t be quick to rush to the big influencers, work with the less popular ones first. Also, choose an influencer with the same values as your brand. Don’t get an influencer who loves burgers and chicken if you sell vegan and vegetarian products. If you sell business software, you’ll seem insincere if you work with a fashion blogger. Do your research upfront to avoid confusing your audience. Your influencers should mesh with your brand and be people you would associate with offline.
