How to Influence People the Influencer Way

Influencer

The history of blogging can be traced to the 1990’s though the word itself came into being and common usage much later. However, it was only after 2001 that blogging really came into its own and people started to take it seriously. The importance of blogging and bloggers in marketing came much later. It is only recently that Brands have realized the tremendous potential that Bloggers and other social media influencers have with respect to influencing consumers. On the other hand, blogs have evolved from being more of personal diaries or a fora for the dissemination of news and events to being more specialized in their genre.

Today bloggers focus on their niche areas, which range from Beauty, Fashion, Health & Fitness, Lifestyle, Technology, Travel and many others. Also, bloggers have evolved from being casual writers, taking up blogging as a hobby to serious writers who have expertise in their field and wield influence in the social sphere. Bloggers today, also wield a lot of social influence through the power of their social media network. Given this fact, bloggers are constantly looking for collaboration with Brands to monetize their work. On the other hand, Brands also recognize the power of Bloggers and other Social Media Influencers and are collaborating on a large scale with them in their marketing efforts.

The huge number of bloggers and social media influencers along with the equally large number of brands complicates matters as far as collaboration between the two is concerned. There needs to be a platform or marketplace where Brands and Bloggers can interact and collaborate. An answer to this problem is the platform called Influencer which is an endeavor from Social Beat, a leading digital agency.

  1. I’ve never heard of influencer. There are so many social media things out there I cant keep up. Blogging has been going for about 20 years? gosh and everyone is saying its the new fad.

  2. This is spot on. As blogging and the recommendation of products becomes the go to way to market to individuals, bloggers will be gaining marketshare as long as they can learn how to work their audiences and attract people that they can get to take action. Influencer sound like a wonderful tool to bridge the gap!

  3. I’ve been reading a lot about branding and campaigns lately. I didn’t know there was a software that collaborated them together along with social media. What a great opportunity to expand within the market.

  4. I’ve heard Influencer is a great company. I used to apply for sponsored posts a lot, but the deadlines got overwhelming, so I stopped. Maybe I’ll go back to it some day.

  5. I’ve signed up with one site so far. I’ve been somewhat successful but could do so much better. Its important to me not to sacrifice my integrity for making money
