Leveraging the power of Influencer Marketing
Today, social media dominates the business landscape and influencer marketing has emerged as a powerful tool for businesses to reach their target audience. With the rise of social media influencers who have amassed large followings, brands now have the opportunity to leverage their influence to promote their products or services.
At the Berlin School of Business and Innovation (BSBI), we recognise the significance of influencer marketing in today’s business landscape and how it can drive success for our students and alumni. Not only are we incorporating influencer marketing into our own digital marketing channels, but we are making sure our marketing students learn the ins-and-outs of influencer marketing too. This is an essential element of digital marketing success, and we want to ensure our marketing graduates leave BSBI with the skills and expertise to excel in the modern, digital, and social media-dominant business sphere.
What is influencer marketing?
Influencer marketing is a form of marketing that involves partnering with individuals who have a strong presence and influence on social media platforms. These influencers, often referred to as content creators, bloggers, or social media personalities, have built credibility and trust with their audience, making them valuable partners for brands looking to promote their offerings.
Through collaborations with influencers, brands can tap into their dedicated follower base and benefit from their ability to create authentic and engaging content. Influencer marketing campaigns can take various forms, including sponsored posts, product reviews, brand endorsements, and influencer-hosted events.
