Influencer Marketing's Authentic Approach is Genuinely Profitable


Marketing demographics can be likened to waves on the sea, making it difficult to gauge the effectiveness of a marketing campaign. Although there are many different approaches and strategies to employ within advertising, influencer marketing is effective because it targets the audience that makes the difference. To expound further, let's discuss why influencer marketing's authentic approach is genuinely profitable.

Getting Real with Marketing

The demographics are difficult to pinpoint, because of the ever-changing people they represent. Historically the younger generations are always seemingly radical compared to their parents' generation, but in today's technologically advanced and rapidly changing cultural landscape this has never been more true.

Getting real is simplifying the process of marketing, although this doesn't mean boring and bland. Rather, this means reaching the targeted audience at their level, which could very well be unreal. In other words, using influencer marketing allows the leaders of a generation to formulate the marketing approach at their "real" level.

Targeting the Leaders of the Cultural Mores

Is there a more influential platform online than YouTube? Videos are the media means in which people (young and old) are finding news, entertainment, how-to, and tutorial videos every day. The scope of YouTube's influencing power is dynamic and massive, to say the least. And by targeting the leaders of the cultural mores on YouTube, a company can achieve a viable means of reaching their audience demographic. Additionally, this is only one of many social media platforms to choose from.

Anyone who is familiar with behavioral sociology knows most people simply follow the leaders. Although many followers may consider themselves leaders, this doesn't change this simple fact of human behavior (showing that most people aren't leaders). The entire point of influencer marketing is to market products by and for these leaders (influencers), which are popular to the masses who follow them.

Because of the popularity of the influencers on YouTube, the subscribers and viewers are open to listening and acting on the suggestions of their videos. The results of successfully gaining an advocate from one of these YouTube influencers can very well propel a product into trendy and viral outer-space.

Authenticity Gained from Earned Media

The savvy audiences of today's populace can discern a paid ad from a non-paid ad. Therefore, the earned media model is effective because it's non-paid advertising. The YouTube influencer is simply referring the product for free samples, thus are doing this because they genuinely like the product. This garners authenticity, which can't be fabricated even in a lush advertising studio full of test-studied actors.

So, not only is this form of advertising affordable, but it promotes a genuine buzz around a product. An independent film festival type of non-conformity buzz, which a corporate big media-saturated populace will appreciate. Yet, this form of advertising does ask companies to hand over their product to influencers with free creative reign for an earned media campaign; essentially, less control, more authenticity.

Allowing the influencer to market a product how they wish is the beauty of earned media in the first place. Embracing this free-flowing authentic approach nets generous social proof, which in turn creates the buzz to propel a product successfully.

Is Influencer Marketing For Your Brand? 

There are quality services uniquely suited for companies who wish to use YouTube and/ or other social media outlets for their earned media campaigns. By using a quality service, companies can have control over who they want to work with and can keep tabs on all the important stats and information concerning influencer campaigns.

Truly, influencer marketing is a unique opportunity for companies to market their products and also for YouTube and social media creators to find companies to work with.

Earned media advertising through influencer marketing is an effective way to reach a large audience because there are more followers than leaders and authenticity will resonate more with the demographics of a populace over-saturated with commercials. This is why influencer marketing is genuinely profitable and should be considered by certain brands.

You Don’t Get It

You don’t understand what’s going on. You are my people, I’m familiar with our shared culture and history, at least what’s left worth sharing. Still, I must say, the vast majority of you simply don’t get it, you don’t understand what is going on in the slightest. The measure of conditioning is well beyond the average person’s perception, and even those that catch on are mostly caught in a controlled wake-up zone full of lies and deceit, as though stuck in a hedge maze in the middle of nowhere with the “nothing” coming close like a hurricane of chaos. Will my fellow American caucasian people figure it out, what’s really going on? Will they search for the hidden history books and evidence that explains the alternative view of the establishment? I wonder. Some do, they are the remnant of believers, those who have searched for the truth out of a sincere love for it. They are honest and value the truth over lies, and they will not let anyone stop them from finding the truth and living truth

Making Substack the Center of a Writing System

Focusing Distractions with Complexity With all of the options writers and content creators have now, finding the right one for each system sometimes takes experimentation. Flops and failures often come with such brimming efforts of zeal, yet the glimmer of hope remains in pictures of automated simplicity. In the beginning, things were simple; then came the expansion, the maintenance, building, creating, researching, and other such effort and time into what can only be called a writing system. Organizing this complex miasma of disparate platforms, the writer (insert content creator as needed) has become a blogger, marketer, promotor, maintenance tech, and organizing master. The actual writing is pushed to the side. Finding Balance Each writer organizes their system differently according to their needs and abilities. I’ve always admired someone who focuses on one platform and doesn’t get stretched too thin. We can get distracted by constantly expanding and trying new things. What’s neede

Enjoy Major League Soccer at the Toyota Stadium in Frisco, TX

When it comes to soccer, Frisco, Texas is on the map with the Toyota Stadium. This is a stadium specifically designed for soccer, yet does have a stage located at one of the ends for concerts or shows. Mostly, the main stadium area is for watching its MLS home team: the FC Dallas soccer club. Visitors can enjoy a MLS game in the 20,500 seating capacity stadium all throughout the summer and fall, as the FC Dallas soccer club plays 8 more home matches from July 4th through October 21, 2018. Visitors can also watch the FCS NCAA Division I Football Championship, Frisco ISD high school football games, a concert on October 20 for the National Soccer Hall of Fame induction weekend, and other various athletic and performance events. As alluded to already, Toyota Stadium (formerly Pizza Hut Park 2005 – 2012) is also the site for the National Soccer Hall of Fame museum. This really puts Frisco on the soccer map, as MLS is the top league for the United States and Canada. The Toyota Stadium c

Are Trump and Biden acting in a political soap opera?

The days of our lives are getting interesting. Realizing politics has tangible results for regular citizens, questioning the authenticity of politics is relevant considering the holistic factors involved. For instance, wondering if the political frontrunners for key positions in the U.S. government are playing a part, acting a character that has been scripted in correlation with their sincere personality underneath. The implications are far-reaching if this is the case, yet isn’t the question relevant in our deep fake technological world? Considering that the divide between fantasy and reality has been clouded with deception and virtual reality, doesn’t it seem plausible in some measure to think that the U.S. presidential race is scripted to control the population according to a certain agenda? Is it naive to think the powers to be would allow the citizens to direct the government when they could get away with not doing so? Is it cynical to think otherwise or practical common sense? Es
