Let’s get this straight. Influencer marketing is marketing to influencers. The reason you want to market your products, brand to influencers is that they will get the word out to everyone else.

“Influencer Marketing is a hybrid of old and new marketing tools, taking the idea of the celebrity endorsement and placing it into a modern-day content-driven marketing campaign. The main differentiator in the case of  influencer marketing is that the results of the campaign are collaborations between brands and influencers,” Influencer Marketing Hub reported.

Listen to GHOGH with Jamarlin Martin | Episode 48: Diishan Imira Part 2: Jamarlin continues his interview with Diishan Imira, founder of hair-care platform Mayvenn. They discuss how Diishan was mentored to think like a boss and “ask for the check,” and how much it meant to him to have investor Richelieu Dennis in his cap table. They also discuss New York progressives bangin’ back against Amazon and the growing negative sentiment against big tech.

Influencers have their large followings on the web and social media, and can be anyone from a fashion photographer on Instagram to a popular cybersecurity blogger uses Twitter.

“Influencer marketing doesn’t just get you exposure, but also endorsements through content that features your brand, which can make it worthwhile for businesses of all sizes,” Shopify reported.

There are two kinds of influencers — Macro-Influencers, who have more than 100,000 followers, and Micro-influencers, who have from 10,000 to 100,000 followers. And sometimes micro-influencers are the way to go as they tend to have a higher engagement rate on their posts and a more loyal audience.
