Social media influencers are an important tool to compliment traditional product market promotion. Influencers have the benefit of being an independent, authentic and credible third-party source of information on the benefits and unique attributes of featured products. The use of influencers is also an efficient means for widely disseminating industry messages cost effectively. See Chris Loves Julia. More Info: Tracy Buzzell
