Top 10 Beauty Influencers

Influencer marketing is a type of social media marketing that relies on endorsements and product mentions from influencers–individuals who have a large social following and are regarded as experts in their field. Influencer marketing works because social influencers have a high level of trust with their followers, and recommendations from them act as a sort of social proof to your brand’s potential consumers.

Influencer marketing has grown in popularity in recent years and shows no signs of abating in India. Instagram influencers are what Yin-Yang to the world of influencer marketing. Any discussion is incomplete unless influencers are mentioned. According to Convince and Convert, influencer marketing has 11x the ROI of typical display advertisements as a channel.
