Why Should You Use An Influencer Video For Your Campaign?

What Is An Influencer?

Influencers are seen as “ordinary” people who carry influence over others and are often referred to as social media personalities or YouTubers with a large online following. Marketers often endorse these individuals to entice potential customers to try certain products or services. They leverage influencers’ expertise and established trust in order to create awareness and brand loyalty. Because of this, influencers have become the “evolution of word-of-mouth”.They can have more power than celebrities and are much more affordable. Their influence derives from the fact that the public sees these influencers as “real people” and see their ‘status’ as reachable.

 

A great example would be a local influencer, @MihlaliN. She has over 45 000 followers on social media and her YouTube channel alone has been viewed more than two million times, which puts certain products at a great exposure.
