Influencer Marketing. I am sure most millennials, even the Gen Zs, reading this article know about it or are pursuing it. But for those who are wondering what it means, let me walk you through.
Influencer marketing uses the key leaders to convey the brand’s message to their large set of audience through blogging or via social media.
Trust. Easy to break and very difficult to build. But the influencers, as we all know, help our brand to build trust among their fans. They have an extreme “influence” on their followers and they help us bridge the trust gap between our brand and the people.

Blogs Are Valuable
In this new age of quick solutions to every damn thing, long-form content still holds more value in comparison to short write-up on social media.

This is because a personal touch is often considered to be more authentic.
A Forever Connection
Social media posts have an impact of two days, max. Stories, on the other hand, have 24 hours viewership and if you don’t see it on the day of the post, then you are most likely to never see it again. Blogs are eternal, they can be viewed, interacted, and shared years after they’ve been published. The can be easily fetched and hence, live a lifetime.

Blogs allow you to track who has come to your article and where they went through your page. ROI, referrals, leads, and sales through backlinking gets is a crazily efficient way of tracking your web traffic
