Although the fact 2020 wasn’t the best year we will remember joyfully, but clearly it taught us some things. Other than devastating oven-ready cunning plans and desolating our “normal” lives. However it taught us patience, self-restraint, and the importance of having high social activity. You may think, what does that have to do with anything? Well my friends, I am saying so after learning the newest influencer marketing trends for 2021 we all will mind what we are going to plan to do and actually do. Above all, the future is unpredictable.
Now, forget about 2020, we are over and done with it. Let’s focus on our brand new year, 2021. First thing you need to know is that influencer marketing is going to be bigger than ever, it’ll become a $15 billion dollar industry by the next year, and as we already see it’s continuing to grow into being a hot topic on social media. #sponsored posts are swarming our feed in a speed of light. I wouldn’t say I’m complaining about the situation, yet it’s what it’s. So, enough about chit chat, let’s get to work and find out what 2021 is cooking for us.
The More Variety, The Better Society
Unfortunately, we all have witnessed that Black influencers faced inequality and discrimination over the course of 2020’s social activism. From symbolic effort to unfair pay, several brands hold responsible for their biased actions.
Owing to the fact that representation can shift predetermined opinions, it is very vital in Influencer marketing as well as other creative industries. Just to create a better society, brands also need to do fulfil their duties and add building diversity and inclusion on campaigns to their new year resolutions.
Who will Run the World? TikTok.
The importance of user-generated content is far beyond noticeable. Moreover, it’s no secret that customers tend to trust user-generated content more than brand-sponsored posts. Just so you know, UGC is a TikTok marketing trend that brands shouldn’t ignore. Even Donald Trump lost a battle with it, therefore if anyone claims TikTok is going to lead Influencer Marketing, we wouldn’t be surprised at all.
Ultimate Secret of Art: Being Natural
Many influencers already start to share their post with #nofilter or #inthemoment taglines and most probably it is going to be huge trend in 2021. Although Instagram could be the platform which pays attention to the visual attractiveness, if influencers want to stand out with their aesthetic posts they need to pinpoint engaging captions more than ever.
The Rise of Micro Influencers
It’s the known fact that micro influencers are more affordable to work with and most of the time it is no trouble to find a micro influencer with a niche audience. So it is expected that renowned brands will open their eyes and start to collaborate with micro influencers who come with fewer demands and don’t make any fuss like bigger names.
