Why influencer marketing is more relevant than ever

//
Peer-to-peer connections

We all know that customers don’t like to be sold to and that the power of content marketing lies in your brand’s ability to deliver content that appeals to your audience’s needs before that of the business. Customers are looking to finance brands for content that’s useful, relevant and above all else trustworthy and authentic. Sceptical of brands looking to push their own agenda, finance brands need to first convince customers that the content they create is done so with their best interest at heart. 

With customers looking first and foremost to their family and peers to qualify the information they read and give them confidence in its source, the role an influencer can play as a relatable extension of your brand is more relevant than ever. With the FBIQ Financial Literacy Study reporting that 44% of 18-34 year olds list family/friends as the most trusted source of information, finance brands should be looking to the role an influencer can play to give your brand that peer-to-peer connection and build confidence in the intentions of your brand. Far from a new concept, influencer marketing is a well-trodden path that we’ve monitored the merits of over many years.
