Exploring Influencer Marketing

What Can It Do for Your Business?
Digital marketing bears several differences and similarities to traditional advertising tactics. Depending on what formats and strategies you choose, you will, ideally, find a combination from both the conventional and the modern that enhance your efforts to reach new customers.

One way to broaden your audience is with influencer marketing. By connecting with those who have influence in your industry, you can build your presence online. Ultimately, this means that more people will see your content because your influential connections will aid in increasing your visibility.

How Influencers Can Help to Market Your Brand

Simply setting up a website for your business is not enough to develop your brand. In order to make your business known by potential customers, you must ensure that once they are aware of it, they remember it. Influential personalities can help you meet this objective by getting your name out there consistently.  

Here are some ways to leverage the movers and shakers in your area of interest:

  • Identify the Influencers – Before you can appeal to the people with the power to influence your audience, you need to be able to identify them. First, perform an online search with keywords that are relevant to your industry. Pay attention to the various articles that may appear in the search results. If you see posts published on major news outlets, chances are good that either the authors or the subjects of those posts have some authority in your field. Also, type the same keywords in social media search engines, and observe the conversations that you find as a result. Certain names are likely to arise repeatedly, and those names could be the very influencers you need to reach.   
  • Explore the Marketplace – You can also locate influential people through marketplaces designed for just that purpose. You can actually browse many platforms known as “influencer marketplaces.” By doing a quick search for such websites and similar tools, you will discover a wealth of resources worth using.     
  • Make Connections – Once you know who to appeal to, you will need to generate some alliances. The key is to remain transparent and honest about your intentions. You might offer to interview certain individuals in a blog post series. This gives your interviewees added exposure to your target demographics, and it costs them nothing but a little time. In return, you could request that they share the posts on their social media pages. You can link back to their websites or pages via your posts, and they can do the same for you. If you forge strong enough connections with some people, you might ask them to publish photos of themselves using your products or services, or to mention your brand when appropriate. Remember to offer to do the same for them.

One of the most convenient benefits of online content marketing is that you can often let other people market your brand for you. This is a far more cost-efficient method than paying steep prices for traditional advertising.

What Works, What Doesn't

For those of you still unfamiliar with digital marketing, it’s important to understand that SEO is more than just a passing trend or an online buzz word. It’s actually one of the most efficient ways to improve website visibility across the board. Not only have we delved into the algorithms responsible for recognizing quantitative value, we’ve also discovered metrics that can do more than just measure site popularity.

One of the most popular SEO tools to date is SEM Rush, a full-service platform that offers a holistic view of UX. But, like any other tool, it does very little good if you don’t know how to use it.
