‘Word of mouth’ has always been considered a guarantee of success in marketing campaigns. According to a study by Nielsen, 83% of consumers globally trust the recommendations of their friends and family and another 66% trust the opinions that other users publish online.
If we add that the person who gives you their opinion about a product or service is also famous or enjoys recognition by public opinion and / or professional circles, the chances of success of the advertising or digital marketing campaign are (almost 100%) assured. According to data from the Musefind platform, 92% of consumers trust the opinion of an influencer more than traditional advertisements.
Influencers are people who have a strong credibility on a specific topic and, by their presence and influence in social media, they can become the ideal prescriber for a brand. Influencers act through various types of platforms: social networks –the most popular medium with the arrival of Bloggers, Instagrammers and Youtubers–, email marketing campaigns, conferences at events, their own blogs, podcasts, videos and any formula that allow for interaction with an audience.
