3.LinkedIn. LinkedIn has steered clear of scandal and controversy and has steadily grown in the last several years. A platform for professional business networking, free from toxic rants and meaningless viral videos. It is a great place to start promoting yourself, building up connections and sparking conversation related to your business.
4. Micro Influencers. Influencer marketing is now a legitimate way to get your new brand, product or service in front of your target audience and to be considered as part of your marketing budget. Audiences are listening to people they trust and have a relationship or interaction with online. If you want to get your service, brand or product posted in an authentic way, micro influencers are the way to go. Micro influencers are not celebrities with millions of followers, but they have a target audience, strong social media engagement from that audience and real followers, opposed to accounts that have purchased followers or use bots to engage. According to Edelman’s 2018 Trust Barometer Report, 60 % of people no longer trust social media companies. Trust has reverted back to immediate friends, family and close acquaintances on social media.
“Influencers will continue to establish themselves as a traditional channel to distribute information relevant for their communities. However, 2019 will be the year of the micro influencer since they will be the ones who will make the biggest impact, contribution, and return on investment. Micro influencers will provide a quality driven focus to a win-win situation for brands.” Karen Freberg Ph.D KarenFreberg.com
