Conclusion: Influencer Marketing as a new strategy of advertising

Brands like Calvin Klein and Reebok are doing it: Influencer to increase sales. But how exactly does it work? Before launching the campaign, it is important to consider exactly which influencer can sell the product best. This is the only way to turn the reach of an influencer into a buyer. For example, if a label sells sports supplies, an influencer, known for its sporting activity, should introduce the product to attract potential customers. This allows the company to target users, win customers and increase sales. If the company is the first to reach the range, then either influencers with a high number of followers should be booked. Otherwise, several “smaller” influencers can be arranged.

Of course, with a campaign, there is never a certainty about how viral the trend is. However, with certain tricks you can attract the attention of the users. It can, for example, be played with many emotional stimuli (see Mercedes campaign). As soon as a person is confronted with emotions, animals, children, etc., the interest automatically arouses and it is gobbled. This attention can once again be used cleverly to increase sales by playing so well with the emotions that the customer has the subconscious impression that he also gets this feeling when buying this product. Through emotional stimuli, the campaign is also shared more quickly with friends and family, which in turn can lead to sales promotion.
