Traditionally, children, family, friends and colleagues were major influencers in a consumer's decision to buy something. In these times of digital marketing expansion, influencers for purchase decisions have become individuals who have persuasive voices, authenticity, an audience and an amplified presence on social media.

According to a McKinsey Study, marketing-inspired word-of-mouth generated more than twice the sales of paid advertising and these customers had a 37% higher retention rate.

Getting the right influencer can control your brand's reputation, influence purchase behaviour, impact your SEO, drive traffic to your website, and potentially be the gatekeepers to your audience.
