There are some particular topics that you need to be careful who you are listening to, society and political matters are on the first rank . If those people call themselves as socio-political influencers they need to have specific characteristics as well. Then let’s begin to tear these people’s traits down.
Allow me to start this part with a question. Have you seen anybody too timid, yet widely influential. Quite impossible. That’s why socio-political influencers have to be able to share their views with many people and not be shy about expressing an idea. Simply to be an influencer you need to be part of a number of networks, it applies to socio-political influencers too, nevertheless being well-informed and having expertise on the matter far more important. To carry your reputation decently you need to be not just another person who barely knows about politics. You should be the one who is a source of expertise on a subject after that your view will be seen as credible. Last but not least, having a high level of activism is strongly required. Socio-political influencers are much more likely to be involved in more traditional, formal approaches to influencing social and political issues such as being involved in local or other groups, writing to politicians etc.
Burning our heads in the sand won’t change the fact that the consumer landscape is swapping day by day. Over the past five years, brands have chosen to collaborate with social media influencers and they created a $5-10 billion dollar industry. It is not a joke that 49% of consumers’ purchases depend on influencer recommendation. 70% of teens trust influencers more than traditional celebrities, while 86% of women use social media for purchasing advice. Influencers’ effect on consumers doesn’t restrain purchasing advice that also leads us to influencers for purchasing recommendations could also sway their vote.
