Influencers are today’s hype. The term influencer usually refers to individuals with a high fan-out rate within a specific community. Many of them have established this rate by means of social media, sometimes coupled with a (or their) blog or a (YouTube) video channel.
Influencers already exist for a very long time. Think about, for example, opinion leaders, columnists, artists and other role models. These individuals have their own opinion and appeal to a specific audience. And if they match your product, then they can have a crucial say in the success of the product. Influencers are often remunerated for each contribution (post, video,…), the so-called commitment (engagement of the target group (shares, likes, clicks,…)) or they receive free products.
Affiliates are individuals or businesses who promote your company or a specific product. When they refer someone to you and you make a sale, then they usually receive a commission.
Not every product can be freely advertised. Therefore, it’s important to realise that the collaboration with affiliates is governed by the normal legislation and regulation around promotional activities in your sector.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT INFLUENCER OR AFFILIATE?
Influencer or affiliate marketing is usually a good idea when your brand recognition by the target clientele isn’t very high yet. When you are already well-known within your target group, then they would also find you without being referred to you. The clients that are referred via influencers or affiliates would then reduce your margin.
