What Is Influencer Marketing?

In marketing there is always a new trendy buzz word and "influencer marketing" is a popular one right now. Popular with good reason, as if done right, influencer marketing can have unparalleled sales, growth and equity results for brands and generate unmatched ROI for marketing budgets.

We, at Global Yodel Media Group, decided to look at the definition of both influence and marketing separately to better understand the term as a whole.

Influence: The capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself.

Influencer marketing is simply the action of promoting and selling products or services through people (influencers) who have the capacity to have an effect on the character of a brand.
