What is a Social Media Influencer?  Social Media Influencers are on social media along with 4.48 billion users worldwide.  What makes them different is they have an extensive following of fans and subscribers.  They have access to a large audience, and can persuade others to follow their recommendations and product endorsements.  Social media influencers often partner with brands, promoting products or services to their followers in exchange for monetary compensation, free products, or discounts. If you can collaborate with quality influencers whose followers are demographically suited to your brand, mega sales of your products could become a reality.

 

The people with the most followers on Twitter, for example, have a massive platform to spread their messages, while those with large, engaged followings on Instagram are an advertiser’s dream sponsor partner.  However, there are micro and nano influencers with between 50,000 and under a million followers, that may be more suited to the goals for your products.  There’s an array of pros and cons to consider when recruiting quality influencers, affiliate publishers, and content creators.  PublisherFinders.com simplifies the process and will deliver for you!
