Understanding The Importance Of Influencer Marketing

by Kiel Handley Content Marketing
It would not be surprising if an SME businessperson is keen to have insights on how to overcome challenges pertaining to content marketing.

As per a survey, nearly half the number of all SMEs feels they are challenged on how to produce the right kind of content.

In fact a good slice of this percentage avers it is their greatest challenge.

Here are a few takeaways.

Good content marketing has to address certain marketing goals. 

  • Assist in pushing up revenue
  • Lower expenses
  • Create happier customers

There is no any doubt that a company, small, medium, or large, must build up persona.

After all, content marketing begins with the audience and terminates with the audience.

If we do not focus on the target audience, achieving objectives is well nigh impossible. 

To start with, most marketers focus on creating a content marketing strategy for their brands.

“The most important aspect to remember is that you must be authentic”, says a marketing expert. “The present day consumer is smart. They will tell if your content is genuine or not.” 

Here are some things you need to do.

Focus on creating content that increases brand awareness. 

  • Persuade your website visitors to sign up for your emails so that you can send promotional to them.
  • Convert those leads into sales. 

A blog perhaps can help. And then do not forget to connect with influencers.

Despite the fact that “influencer marketing” is not a new concept, several businesses tend to ignore it.

With the digital technology making strong headway, successful marketers have leveraged “influencer marketing” to tangible and intangible advantages. 

But first let us be clear on what influencer marketing is.

In straightforward terms, it is the relationship between a product brand and the influencer.

The influencer promotes a brand or a product through various social media channels, like YouTube, Facebook, or Instagram.

The influencer need not be a celebrity. He or she must be a trusted figure in the niche industry. Moreover, they must have a loyal following because of their expertise in the subject.

Typically, influencers are in control of what they are doing. They may create content independently and integrate a company’s brand into it.

This task is not easy either.

Long before the advent of the internet, television was practically the sole mass media consumers had access to, so it was but natural for marketers to choose television for promoting brands. 

Today the scenario has transformed with a slew of numerous social media platforms available for marketing.

As the target audience is now distributed over various forms of media, it has become increasingly difficult to reach out to them.

Advertising through influencers is an answer that solves this problem.

When a brand is promoted through an “influencer”, the consumer engages and trusts with him/her.

Here is a caveat though. When choosing an influencer, a company must be careful that the followers are obtained organically.
