How To Boost Your Digital Marketing With Micro Influencers

Particle ‘micro’ makes a difference. Find out why 2 micro influencers are better than 1 regular.

A topic of influencers is trending these days. In some way, it is similar to cryptocurrency in financial market: it’s on everyone’s lips and sparks heated arguments.

There are some haters, who call influencer marketing a waste of money because there is no exact way to check its effectiveness, some believers, who attribute last month’s 5% increase in sales to an extra dollar invested in an industry guru, and the rest, who view it as gambling which may or may not work
   
Whichever category you belong to, you should be aware of a new stream in the realm of influencer marketing - the rising power of micro influencers.

While some stiff-necked marketers call micro influencers “too small to even bother,” we actually believe that you should bother investing in them as the return could be much higher than you expected.

The largest benefit of micro influencers over large influencers is a high, almost personal, engagement with their audience.

Making them promote your product is similar to as if you make your potential customers’ inner circle, people they know and respect, promote your product.

There is also typically a high level of trust established between micro influencers and their followers.

Unlike large influencers, whose promo content faces a large degree of skepticism, micro influencers enjoy higher levels of followers’ trust and higher attention to products they advertise.

Another advantage of micro influencer marketing is its cost efficiency.

With micro influencers, you will not have to spend 30% of your marketing budget on influencers, and still be able to enjoy the benefits of at least higher brand awareness and ideally even increased sales.   

Last but not least, with micro influencers you will be able to reach a more targeted audience compared to large influencers.

You probably have experienced the pain and struggles of finding the right audience to which you should appeal with your product. Micro influencers are there to help you with that.
