Influencer Marketing – A Social Media Strategy

A Social Media Strategy that Works!

In the past months Influencer Marketing as a social media strategy has drawn increased attention.  Several companies are using Influencer Marketing as a social media strategy to increase sales  & brand awareness at a low cost. With a return of up to 20$ for every 1$ spent, it’s no wonder that many are scrambling to get in on the action. While some marketers have figured it all out, there are many that are still confused — What is Influencer Marketing? Why does it work? How do I use it in 2017? In the video below, we discuss Influencer Marketing and how effective it can be.

Enter Influencer Marketing​

Is marketing dead? They say people are getting too smart for marketing! Indeed, consumers are getting resourceful. Traditional marketing — like advertising, public relations etcetera — don’t seem to hold the same weight they used to. People are simply not buying into these campaigns — they take matters into their own hands and do their own research.

So how do marketers tackle this situation? Is there a social media strategy that is reliable?  Enter: Influencer Marketing

What Is Influencer Marketing?

What is influencer marketing? Well, it’s the type of marketing where you don’t communicate directly to your audience. But instead, you pinpoint key-leaders of a community — and you drive your message through them.

These “key-leaders” are people that have earned the trust of your target audience. Malcolm Gladwell talks about this in his book — The Tipping Point. He refers to them as “Mavens” – information brokers who share their knowledge and thoughts simply to help others. In the process of doing so — they build a foundation of trust with their audience

Influencer Marketing leverages these ‘Mavens’ to deliver their message. It’s like Apple going up to Superman and saying “Hey, could you tell all your fans that you love the new iPhone?”

Social Media Strategy: An Action Example of Influencer Marketing

Here’s a real example.

In 2015, Lord & Taylor — a retail giant — collaborated with around 50 instagrammers and asked them to post of picture of themselves wearing a specific dress on a specific day. With a 1000$ to 4000$ incentive, the instagrammers happily obliged and posted the pics on the given date. Instagram influencers can reach their engagement goal with socialmediadaily.de.

The posts reached a total of 11.4 million instagram users — which prompted 328,000 brand engagements on Lord & Taylor’s account. The dress sold out in no time.

Most of the buyers, didn’t even know they were being advertised. Nor did they care — Because the ad didn’t disrupt their experience ON Instagram. If anything — it enhanced it.

That’s how effective Influencer marketing can be! Let’s look at a few stats to see why.

Lord & Taylor using Influencer Marketing on Instagram as a Social Media Strategy

The Numbers Don’t Lie – This Social Media Strategy Works!

92% of customers said they trust recommendations from strangers over brands, and go onto say that there is a lot of potential for these brands to improve customer service. And Of all marketers who have used Influencer Marketing as their social media strategy, 81% said they saw succes. That’s a pretty high success rate.

Another study showed that — for every dollar spent on influencer marketing — marketers are generating up to 20$ in return (Averaging at $6.50). With these strong returns, everyone’s scrambling to get in on the action before it’s too lat. Soon this social media strategy will be convoluted.

Here’s the thing, at the moment the value generated from Influencer Marketing is worth WAY more than what you’re paying for. But this won’t last long. Soon, there’ll be more marketing campaigns than there are trusted influencers. Prices for will go up, and margins will thin.

How do you get in on the action before it’s too late? Platforms like TapInfluence, MuseFind and Tomoson are making it easier than ever for marketers to target influencers.

Influencer Marketing – Do Your Research!

But before approaching an Influencer, do your research. Ensure that the influencer has the desired relevance and reach. And if you do decide on an influencer, let him be himself! The reason influencer marketing works so well, is because the message delivered is authentic. Holding an influencer to a script ruins that.

It’s important to realize that Influencer Marketing is by no means a quick & easy hack. It requires time and investment, but the returns can definitely be worthwhile!

When it comes to getting prospects for your online biz, quality is always better than quantity.

For example, when I first got started I got involved with one of those lead companies that promised me 100 new leads everyday.

Well, they sent me those leads, but they were junk.

They weren’t targeted.

They weren’t buyers.

They didn’t give a flip about what I was promoting.

Long story short, I wasted a lot of money with services like those.

You see, it’s not about the quantity of prospects you have, it’s about the quality.

And trust me, the prospects that will be clicking your links in The Click Engine are going to be QUALITY.

We’re talking about real buyers who are interested in the MMO, biz opp and internet marketing niches.

The cool thing is, you can get autopilot traffic from these buyers for less than 5 bucks.
