Influencer marketing is a type of social media marketing that uses endorsements and product mentions from influencers who have dedicated amounts of social following. Influencer marketing works because of the high amount of trust that the influencer has built up with their following particularly on platforms like Instagram. Brands will use the ‘influencer marketing’ technique to give themselves greater exposure. False advertising can occur through social media and we as consumers are affected by this. We tend to look at the advertised post and it makes us want to buy the product or services, because we look up to that influencer and want to have what they have too.
There are two most common hashtags that are used on Influencer’s posts:
- #AD – means it is an Advertised post. This is used on posts to make sure that their followers are aware they are being paid or given something of value to promote the product.
2. #SPON – means it is a Sponsored post. This is used when the influencer or celebrity retains full editorial control of the post but is sponsored by the brand.
Celebrity endorsement is another form of advertising campaign or marketing strategy used by brands to help promote a certain product or service for greater exposure and sales. Whether it’s an advertisement on television, or on social media, using a famous face grabs people’s attention and makes us want to buy the products because of who they are.
