How would you compare Influencer Marketing with digital advertising?

In general, advertising is the process of getting a product or service known to a wide audience, whereas marketing is the process of aligning a product or service with a specific target and persuading them to buy based on research and data.

Because of this, influencer marketing is considerably more effective than traditional advertising.

How should brands use Instagram influencers to grow their business? What is your personal experience with Instagram influencing?

At the moment, Instagram is the most popular social media platform for brands. It has more than 1 billion+ monthly active users. Now my personal experience says that Instagram is going to take over other marketing platforms. One of my clients gets 60% of their traffic only from Instagram using SEO. We save a significant amount of money on advertising by relying heavily on influencer marketing. One of my own websites gets 90% of traffic only from Instagram with 2/3 posts per month. So yeah, Instagram influencers are going to take over the industry. But hey, don’t forget TikTok.

Smart business owners have long understood the power social media has to connect companies with their ideal clients and customers. It’s never been more apparent than it is now. With the world working from home and the economy in flux, influencer marketing presents a unique opportunity for small businesses to attract ideal customers for a fraction of the usual advertising price tag. With influencer marketing giving businesses an 11X higher ROI than traditional advertising, it simply makes sense as an investment if you want to run low-risk, high-return marketing campaigns. This is especially valuable for small businesses trying to grow and survive during this unprecedented time. Educate yourself & your team on influencer marketing.
