What is Influencer Marketing?

Brands/businesses align themselves with an influencer (anyone from a business bigwig, media darling to a social media titan) in an effort to spread the word about their offerings. The premise is that an ‘influencer’ can let people know about you and can influence them to have a look at your business.

Trust is the key and, if people trust the influencer, it should follow that people will then buy what you are selling - goods or services. At least, that’s what it’s meant to do.

Does it work?

Recent data shows that 69 percent of marketers who use influencer marketing find it effective. More specifically, 73 percent of marketers say it’s effective for lead generation and 76 percent say it helps foster customer loyalty. 

In his talk, Andrew Walker explains how to work out who your influencers are, and how to use them effectively - and the pitfalls of conventional influencer marketing wisdom.

Andrew Walker, Digital Wordsmith

Andrew Walker is a digital strategy consultant, author and speaker.

Over the last eighteen years he’s co-founded three successful technology startups, was the first person to interview senior UK politicians on Twitter (including Opposition Leaders and the PM), created data mining systems, helped set-up the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), reported on elections for the BBC, been a guest technology expert on Sky News and radio (BBC R4 Today, PM, World at One, World Have Your Say) and written in newspapers (Independent, Guardian) and magazines (Linux User, .Net, WebUser) about digital technology, business and culture.

As for Influencer Marketing, Andrew says “Influencer marketing only works if you understand your customers. The concept of influencers - people who'll help promote and market your business in social media - is often misunderstood. Big names with big followings might mention your business, but does that really make any difference? Often, it's people who wouldn't count as 'influencers' who really influence your audience.”
