Influencer marketing is a good technique to help increase brand awareness.

Today, the internet is home to many interesting personalities who have a cult-like following. These personalities are what are known as social media influencers. Each of them have their own niche. You can use the power of influencers to market your business.

For example, if you are a restaurant and because of COVID 19 you can only do take away and food order deliveries. During these times you can partner with an influencer to drive orders to your restaurant. Picture this, a Facebook influencer with 50,000 followers talks about the benefits of ordering Pizza from your restaurant and encourages his fans to do the same, and at least 1000 fans make orders for your pizza’s that cost K100, that means you would get K100,000 !
