What is influencer marketing?
Influencer marketing is a relationship between a brand and an influencer. The influencer promotes the brand’s products or services through various media outlets such as Instagram and YouTube.
It’s a marketing technique where a business collaborates with an online influencer to market its products or services. This strategy often entails using product mentions and endorsements from individuals with in-depth knowledge, expertise, or authority in a particular niche, popularly known as influencers. An influencer can easily sway your target audience into performing a specific action, thanks to their social status. Influencer marketing is becoming increasingly popular in Canada mostly because of the high ROI it can bring to a brand.

Why do businesses need influencer marketing?
Hiring an influencer to market your products, services, or brand has many benefits. For instance, this approach can significantly enhance your brand’s authenticity. The modern consumer in Canada prefers to do business with reputable and trusted brands. If a public figure or celebrity can vouch for your brand, this can add a lot of points to your credibility.
The other benefit of influencer marketing is that it boosts engagement. Whether you are an established company or a startup, it can be challenging to engage your clients. Most consumers usually skip posts from companies on social media because they assume it’s either an advert or a marketing message. Influencer marketing can help you bridge this gap and reach closer to your clients because they either have expertise in that niche or are simply popular.
Influencer marketing is also known to have a high return on investment. Considering the many people an influencer can reach, a single campaign can drive lots of leads to your business.
What are the different types of influencers?
