In this guide, we explain how partnering with influencers can enhance your video marketing campaigns.
Influencer Marketing Explained
Influencer marketing involves marketing products and services with those who have a sway over other people’s purchasing decisions. Influencers are people who run accounts on social media that have a large following. They typically operate within a specific niche (e.g. wellness, beauty, food) and are perceived to be credible experts by their fans. Influencers usually have a good relationship with their fanbase that is based on trust and loyalty. As a result of this, they typically have excellent engagement rates.

Key Components of an Influencer Marketing Campaign
Be clear on who you are trying to target with your campaign. This will make it easier to decide which platforms to use, the type of content to produce, and what type of influencers to work with.
Facebook is the most widely used platform but there is also the opportunity to work with influencers on sites like Twitter and Instagram, depending on your audience.
Even if your chosen influencers create content for you, ensure that someone in the company reviews it to ensure it is in line with your message and goals.
