List of Top 10 Global InfluencersThe Content Team 5 years ago
Ever since Instagram came into existence in 2010, it has become a social media staple that has given rise to a pocket of influencers. Each influencer serves as an inspiration in his/her own niche and has access to a huge audience and can persuade others to act based on their recommendations. This proves to be an effective tactic for brands and businesses to grow.
Certain brands have garnered a high following on Instagram – National Geographic and Nike – based on their own reach. But most brands do not have such capabilities and require a larger audience for their voice to be heard. This is where influencers help a lot.
There are top influencers in every niche based on their quality of content and how well-engaged they are with their audience. There’s a perception that most brands go for influencers with high number of followers, but it all boils down to the relevance, quality and your influence with the audience.
