Trends That Will Dominate Instagram Influencer Marketing In 2020:
Let’s take a look at the few trends that can help you create a robust Instagram influencer marketing strategy for 2020.
1.) Micro- And Nano-Influencers Are Becoming More Popular:
Celebrity and macro-influencers are quite expensive. Though they have millions of followers, they often have lower engagement rates as compared to that of micro- and nano-influencers.
Micro- and nano-influencers have fewer followers, but they often have highly-engaged and loyal audiences. They are also more affordable and they take time to build meaningful relationships with their followers.
2.) Brands Are Building Long-Term Partnerships With Influencers:
Brands have realized the benefits of building long-term relationships with influencers. They now prefer long-term partnerships instead of one-time collaborations.
Ongoing influencer partnerships help marketers gain better insights into their influencer marketing initiatives. In fact, influencers also invest more time and effort into creating high-quality, engaging content since the partnership offers them greater financial security.
3.) Instagram Influencers Will Create More Video Content:
A report by Wyzowl found that video marketing helped 88% of marketers achieve good ROI in 2019.
96% of consumers also said that they watched explainer videos to learn about products. 66% said they prefer watching short videos to get more information about products or services. Video content is, therefore, a great tool to help people discover your goods and services.
