The recent pandemic revolutionized the entire scope of how brands approach marketing, with digital advertising surging globally.

As it may sound new to many of you, influencer marketing has now become an integral part of digital marketing pouring in direct results for many brands.

The global influencer marketing platform market size was valued at US$7.68 billion in 2020. It is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 30.3% from 2021 to 2028. The term influencer marketing has swiftly transitioned from a mere buzzword to being incorporated into mainstream branding strategies.

Entamoty Media Ltd, one of the leading digital marketing agencies in Ghana is part of the few digital advertising brands employing this strategy to create the magic for its clients.

According to the CEO of Entamoty Media Ltd, Barimah Amoaning Samuel, who’s also an award winning blogger and content strategist, “60% of my company’s clients are seeing real results through INFLUENCER MARKETING today, it’s high time we embraced it entirely”.

Influencer marketing is also known as influence marketing is a form of social media marketing involving endorsements and product placement from influencers, people and organizations who have a purported expert level of knowledge or social influence in their field.

The Influencers are the people with the power to affect the buying habits or quantifiable actions of others by uploading some form of original often sponsored content to social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat or other online channels.

Influence marketing can take many forms depending on client’s target audience, budget, goal or any specification. These include; affiliate marketing, social media take over, reviews, unboxing, blog posts, give-aways, contests and many forms. Whether you’re a budding online advertiser, an agency or a business owner; I suggest you hop on the train of influencer marketing as it’s already on the journey to leading the digital marketing stats.
