When was the last time you checked your phone? Most of you are probably reading this blog on your phone, and the rest of you most likely checked your phones only a few moments ago. Well, the last time you checked your phone, did you check social media? For most of you, the answer is likely yes.
At Fort Lauderdale PR firm Durée & Company, our team dedicates a great deal of time and effort to promoting clients by posting on social media, ensuring that posts are timely, relevant and engaging. Most people follow their favorite companies and celebrities on at least one social media platform, but these may not be the most effective outlets in promoting a client, product or service. The most effective? Micro-influencers.
Social media is crawling with micro-influencers. This term may be unfamiliar, but you probably see them every day. YOU might even be a micro-influencer. Micro-influencers are people or accounts on social media that have 5,000 to 100,000 followers. Unlike celebrities, micro-influencers are less about sponsored content and more about authenticity. They voluntarily post about products and services they like in fun and creative ways, keeping followers engaged and interested in their posts. For many, these people are just more relatable.
There is a level of trust between micro-influencers and their followers as a result of their genuine and organic posts, making them that much more influential. Reaching out to these types of social media accounts for promotion of a client or product is less costly and, though the post may not reach as many people overall, has a greater impact on those whom it does reach. In this case, it’s quality over quantity.
And while micro-influencers may be more difficult to find – it will definitely take some digging – the payoff is definitely worth it.
