Influence Marketing: The Lever Not to Ignore

Undeniably, influence marketing has become a must-have when it comes to communication strategy. But beyond product placements, what do you know?

| Why Invest in Influence Marketing?

You have plenty of options to showcase your company/brand through “traditional” advertising, so why bother with a new lever? Simply because the more human you integrate, the better it works.

According to the 2022 Reech study on the subject, communication and marketing professionals appreciate:

  • 58%: the trust between the community and the influencer,
  • 56%: the universe and creativity of content creators,
  • 53%: the ability to target a population,
  • 51%: the ability to reach a larger audience,
  • 28%: campaign performance,
  • 27%: the diversity of content.

When it comes to influence marketing, we are mainly talking about image and reputation. You impose a face and a personality on a product. People tend to trust a real person who seems to share their opinion on their experience more than a picture of a model on a big avenue.

| A New Presence on Social Media

Promoting your company/brand through an influencer will allow you to be visible on a platform where you may not yet be present.

TikTok, Instagram, Youtube, Twitch, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Snapchat, … New networks and new communities that you may not have targeted, but billions of users and potential new customers. 87% of buyers were convinced to make a purchase thanks to an influencer – according to Hubspot. An influencer develops their own community and builds a relationship of trust. By collaborating with your brand, the influencer becomes an ambassador for your product or service.

| How to Find the Right Influencer?

To choose an influencer, you need to pay attention to several important points:

  • Engagement rate and authenticity of the audience,
  • Number of followers,
  • Demographic data and interests of the followers,
  • Potential previous collaborations with competitors.
