What Is Influencer Marketing?
Influencer Marketing is a relatively young marketing service in the century-old world of marcom. It’s morphing daily — or almost as quickly as the latest search engine algorithm updates.
In short, influencer marketing uses influencers or people who have a large following on different social media platforms to promote or endorse certain products or services. Ideally the best influencer marketing will be comprised of an analysis of the competition, the market and engaging the best influencers in that space to bring awareness and thus conversions or purchases of the products or services you’re hocking.
- First 10x analyzes the competition, market and potential market of the product or service to be marketed.
- Then after budgets are determined, 10x will setup influencer marketing campaigns to engage A, B and/or C influencers (depending on the budget and goals) of the client. Some campaigns are more geared to microinfluencers, which 10x is also highly experienced in.
- We then identify the social media influencer marketing to reach these objectives.

There are different types of influencer tactics, depending on the nature of the product.

Many influencers thus expect giveaways or swag boxes they can share on their feed or social media via photos, videos or posts and mentions.
