Currently, 26 percent of companies spend between 10,000 and 50,000 euros per year on instagramer such as Bibi, Caro Daur or Lisa and Lena. 28 percent plan to spend less than 10,000 euros per year on influencer marketing and 19 percent spend between 50,000 and 100,000 euros per year. Only six percent plan to spend more than 100,000 euros and another six percent more than 250,000 euros. This means that micro and mid-level influencers are clearly at the top of the companies’ favour, while macro or even mega-influencers have a much smaller share of the market.

This is not only because of the price, but also because most companies offer very special products and services and want to address a specific target group accordingly. This is what niche influencers can offer, whereas influencers with hundreds of thousands or even millions of followers are rather unspecific.

Thus, when choosing influencers, the match with the target group is much more important than the reach.

So if you would like to be an influencer, the right strategy is to find a good niche. You like to sing and you sing well? Why not earn money with your hobby and make singing the topic of your social media efforts?

So you become an influencer

What TV and film stars used to be when it came to recommending products, spreading hairstyles, fashion and cosmetic trends and putting companies and brands in the spotlight, are now the influencers. The special thing about the modern opinion maker is that in most cases it is quite normal people from our midst who have made a name for themselves via generally accessible social networks. In principle, every seeker of success is someone who has a certain charisma, knows a lot about a certain area and who enjoys marketing himself somehow. Logically, the whole thing is above all something for extroverted trendsetters.

Credibility is one of the most important virtues of influencers. So choose something that you really enjoy and that you are really good at. This is, as already mentioned, about singing.

When singing, it is usually important that you have a good voice, but also that you are stylish and have good dance moves in stock. As already mentioned, being an influencer also includes a great tendency to show yourself, which is why an extravagant outfit and appearance are usually no problem. So develop your own style, which appeals to your desired target group. Whether K-Pop, Rock, Pop, Blues, Country, etc. stay true to your own taste and create a suitable image with which you feel comfortable.

For the recordings you should of course already have good equipment, i.e. camera with tripod, a good microphone and lamps for illumination.
