Influencer marketing is not a new concept, far from it. Its growing relevance to brands is constantly changing the digital marketing world, especially after the 2020 pandemic. Each year brings new platforms, new types of content, and new ways brands can interact with their customers.

After complicated years like 2020 and 2021, during which brands have struggled to update their marketing and advertising campaigns to reach an audience suddenly confined and forced to comply with various health measures, 2022 offers new promise. Influencer marketing in particular is stronger than ever!

Video and audio content are gaining ground

Influencer marketing is stronger than ever with a continuous shift from text and images to audio and video content. Text and images aren’t dead yet, of course, with Instagram still being one of the top most used networks. But video and audio content have been gaining more and more popularity over the years, with a huge increase in marketing strategies on TikTok and YouTube. Facebook, Twitter, and other older social networks are also now emphasizing video sharing and launching various social audio features.

Voice seems to be establishing itself as a new digital communication lever. Podcasts, in particular, are on the rise, making it one of the most promising content for brands to invest in marketing, particularly influencer marketing.

Thanks to the collaboration with content creators, there is no shortage of opportunities for companies to place their brand and products on their channels. In fact, 74% of people exposed to an advertisement while listening to a podcast are more likely to visit a company’s website and 65% more likely to purchase a product or service (source: Media et Edison Research announcement results).

Reech has always had a positioning as an expert and educator on the flu market, in particular thanks to its annual study which provides a complete overview of good practices but also thanks to the various conferences organized throughout the year.
