How travel brands can use influencer marketing: insights, lifehacks, & examples

Table of Contents

Promoting products and services through social media influencers is a popular tool both large and small companies use. People trust opinion leaders, so their recommendations work more effectively than traditional advertising. However, finding a reliable creator can become challenging: some deceive advertisers, and others do not meet the agreements.

The travel and tourism industry makes no exception. Before travel agencies approach content creators, they need to get prepared. Below, top specialists of Famesters agency speak about the general principles of influencer marketing for travel brands.


Why do travel companies work with influencers? Like any promotion tool, it helps resolve several challenges:

  • Create demand in the market. The influencer has a ready audience. With its help, you can quickly announce a new product or service.
  • Increase brand awareness. If you want to work with a new audience, you can find it from a content creator with a specific account topic.
  • Form loyalty. People who follow travel and lifestyle influencers and engage with their content trust them. If they promote your services, their followers will love you, too.
  • Mitigate objections. A creator can convince followers that using tourist services is “not expensive” and “not scary.” This will immediately address the most common customer objections.
  • Provide content. Influencers write texts, shoot videos, take photos, and create content that appeals to the audiences. You can use this information in your business account.

Solving these issues increases sales, which is the primary goal of any travel business.

It is worth understanding that a creator suitable for a travel influencer marketing campaign should not necessarily be Kim Kardashian or Cristiano Ronaldo. The opinion leader you need may have 5 thousand subscribers. How the influencer manages to keep them engaged with the content is essential.

The overall influencer marketing statistics show a strong tendency to involve smaller influencers for advertising campaigns: 39% of brands preferred to work with nano-influencers (1,000-10,000 followers), while 30% of businesses, including travel and tourism companies, partnered with micro-influencers (10,000-100,000 followers). For mid-sized brands, cooperating with nano- and micro-influencers has the apparent benefit: their services are less expensive, but the percentage of the engaged audience is higher. This gives higher conversion.

Top influencers provide greater reach. But it’s unlikely that a travel agency needs thousands of followers who may not even be its target audience. Celebrities are approached by large brands who are constantly expanding their reach and are willing to pay a lot of money for it.

The number of followers is one of the criteria to consider when choosing a creator to collaborate with. To maximize your advertising budget, you must work closely on filtering influencers. They can gain likes, subscribers, comments, and views through services or colleagues. Finding an influencer with a “pure” audience is difficult without company subscribers and bots.

Of course, only some creators are engaged in cheating, but not to waste your budget, you need to check your profile according to various parameters. Filtration can be carried out manually and using services.

Checking the influencers manually

You can evaluate a content creator based on several criteria:

1. Number of publications. Using this indicator, it is easy to determine how “old” the account is and the purity of the audience. If there are 30 posts published, the influencer has been working for a month or a little more. There can only be a few genuine followers. If there are tens or hundreds of thousands of them, most likely, the creator was cheating.

2. Likes/comments ratio. For every 100 likes, there should be 0.5-1 comments. When many people like the post, there are also many comments. The likes are likely to be fake if they are not there.

3. Audience quality. See who follows the influencer and likes the posts. Do they look like real people? If the list contains only stores, bots, or no-name accounts, it is better to avoid contacting such a creator.

4. Video views. Suppose an influencer has an audience of thousands, hundreds of likes and comments on posts, and almost no video views. Most likely, this creator used cheating services. On average, 15-30% of all subscribers watch videos. If the percentage is less, pass by this influencer.

5. Comments quality. Dummy comments usually do not contain useful information. See how subscribers write, whether they use emojis, and evaluate their style, language, and jokes. If discussions are insincere, it is immediately apparent.

6. Who leaves comments? Sometimes, influencers create activity chats. They post, comment, and like each other at certain times in a circle. Look at a couple of profiles of those commenting. If it says something like “direct message for cooperation issues,” most likely, the activity is created artificially.

Checking the influencers through services

The second way to check the opinion leaders is through services. They work very simply: go to the appropriate website, pay, insert the influencer’s nickname into a line, and receive information about the profile in numbers, graphs, tables, and diagrams. The service shows the number of suspicious likes, comments, and subscribers and estimates the audience coverage over time. Each platform has its own features.

Famesters specialists have recently overviewed the top influencer marketing tools that help brands to work with the creators. Check the material here and discover the best platforms for opinion leaders’ discovery and cooperation.


When the first steps are made, and the travel brands identify the influencers whose values align with their brand ethos and marketing strategy, it’s time to pass on to cooperation format identification.

So, how can travel brands use influencer marketing strategies, and what cooperation formats can influencers suggest?

  • Destination showcasing:

Collaborating with influencers to showcase specific travel destinations is a potent strategy. Influencers bring these destinations to life through captivating visuals and personal narratives, enticing their followers to consider these places for their next adventure:


To provide an authentic experience, travel brands can allow influencers to take over their social media accounts for a day. This offers followers a genuine, firsthand perspective of the travel experiences associated with the brand:

  • User-generated content campaigns:

Travel brands using influencer marketing strategies can encourage travelers to share their experiences with a branded hashtag to create a community of engaged users. User-generated content adds authenticity to the brand narrative and provides social proof for potential customers.

  • Review and recommendation:

One of the most obvious ways to apply influencer marketing for travel brands as influencers’ reviews and recommendations can significantly impact potential travelers’ decisions. Honest and positive testimonials about the brand’s products or services can build trust and credibility.

  • Contests and giveaways:

Hosting contests or giveaways and collaborating with influencers can boost engagement and brand awareness. Encourage participants to share their travel aspirations, creating a buzz around the brand.

  • Storytelling through Influencers:

Travel is not just about places; it’s about the stories created along the way. Brands can work with influencers to tell compelling stories, emphasizing the emotional aspects of travel and the brand’s role in creating memorable moments.

  • Educational сontent:

Influencers can create educational content by positioning the brand as a valuable source of information. Travel tips, cultural insights, and destination guides provide value to the audience and establish the brand as an authority in the travel space.

  • Event collaborations:

Collaborating with influencers for travel-related events, festivals, or conferences can extend the brand’s reach. Participation in such events provides exposure to a targeted audience interested in travel experiences.

  • Long-term partnerships:

Building long-term relationships with influencers fosters authenticity. Regular collaborations can result in more genuine and impactful content as influencers become true advocates for the brand.


Travel brands using influencer marketing tools definitely aim to connect with their audience on a deeper level. By harnessing the creativity and authenticity of influencers, brands can not only inspire travel but also create a community of engaged and loyal customers.

Influencer marketing market analysis: key tendencies in 2023

Influencer marketing market analysis

Table of Contents

This article is dedicated to studying the influencer marketing market analysis and outlining the main tendencies for its development. And there is no better way to start than to remember how, in 2019, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the American moon landing, LEGO surveyed children aged 8-12 years. The company wanted to find out what children want to become.

The researchers were shocked to learn that children are more attracted to being influencers than astronauts: 30% of American and 29% of British children expressed a desire to become content creators, while 11% wanted to become astronauts. Another research confirmed that the idea of building a career in digital marketing is getting more and more popular as more than 53% of US Gen Zers consider it easy to become an influencer.  

At Famesters, we know that being an influencer completely differs from being an average social media user. Below, we will consider the latest market analysis for influencer marketing results and see if the figures confirm the point.  


Calculating the creators’ market takes a lot of work. There is no single platform connecting influencers and brands. Some collaborations do not involve any intervention from third parties at all.

Following the influencer marketing market analysis results, in 2016, the creators’ market was only worth $1.7 billion. By 2022, it has grown up to $16.4 billion. It is expected to grow 29% to $21.1 billion in 2023. Whatever the size of the market, it is snowballing, adding from 40% to 60% annually over the past five years.

Influencer Marketing Market Size

Nothing demonstrates the market growth more evidently than the overlap of three trends:

  • growth in demand;
  • supply growth;
  • rising prices.

We can observe all three trends while working with influencers.

In 2021, 62% of advertisers planned to increase their budget for collaborations with creators compared to 2020. One could make allowances for the COVID-19 pandemic if 66% of brands had not expressed a similar desire in a year before.

Along with demand, supply also grows, but it is much more challenging to estimate. How many influencers there are in the world and how quickly their number is growing remains an open question.

Trying to answer this question, we’ve discovered that the number of creators “floats” ranges from 3 million to 38 million. This is a huge spread, but even the lower threshold is already an impressive number.

Indirectly, the growth of both demand and supply is evidenced by a steady increase in the number of platforms and agencies connecting influencers and advertisers:

number of new platforms and agencies in the market


However, the explosion of interest in opinion leaders is not indicated by all this but by rising prices. And oh, how they grow!

As an Izea study showed, the average cost of an advertising post on Instagram over six years increased from $134 to $1643 – that is, 12.3 times:

2006-2019 average cost paid per bloq post

Even in the year of the pandemic, prices have not undergone any significant changes. On Instagram, stories have become slightly cheaper, the cost of posts has not changed, and videos have even become more expensive:

2019 vs average rates2



All this extraordinary growth must surely add up to something for advertisers.

First, to understand effectiveness, let’s overview the most popular social media platforms.

Compared to last year’s market analysis for influencer marketing, more companies use their tools, and noticeably more brands use third-party platforms. When asked if they utilize third-party platforms to assist with influencer marketing, 60.3% said yes (44.6% in 2022).

In 2023, TikTok ranked number one, with 55.5% of brands using it for influencer marketing campaigns. In 2022, 79% of respondents used Instagram for influencer marketing. It is still trendy but has dropped to second place this year. “Only” 50.8% of brands use Instagram in influencer marketing.

Surprisingly, Facebook’s popularity as an influencer marketing channel surged last year, with 50% of brands collaborating with Facebook influencers, although that figure dropped to 42.1% this year.

According to the influencer marketing market analysis, nano-influencers (up to 10 thousand followers) and micro-influencers (up to 100 thousand followers) are of primary interest to advertisers:

Influencer Preferences


There are three reasons, and the first of them is obvious – the price. The more followers, the higher the price of an advertising campaign. Only some brands are ready to pay millions to an influencer, even if it is a celebrity

The second reason is authenticity. This is a controversial factor, but advertisers are also guided by it. The number of hits, popularity, and attention has yet to spoil small creators. Plus, their audience is more homogeneous and therefore relevant.

The third reason – and this is where we come to efficiency – is engagement. For nano- and micro-influencers, it is higher, especially on Instagram and TikTok:

average engagement rate 2


And engagement rate is essential simply because 25.5% of brands use it to measure advertising effectiveness. This is a standard metric for evaluating opinion leaders before purchasing advertising. We look at engagement and understand how accurate the creator’s audience is.

However, the first critical point to measure the success of an advertising campaign with an influencer is the number of views, reach, and impressions – almost 50% of all brands see it as the crucial factor. Another critical indicator of effectiveness is closer to money and revenue – conversions:

most common measure of influencer success 2


There would only be a market if it were for users who follow influencers. We either follow or know more than one person who follows a creator on Instagram. And we are not talking about YouTube.

As it turns out, Internet users have no shortage of reasons to follow an influencer: from “to learn something new” to “get a promo code.”

maim motivators to follow content creators


Since there are many reasons to follow a creator, there are also many types of influencers and content that an advertiser can integrate.

When it comes to advertising, content creators serve multiple functions for consumers: showing a product in action, proving its quality, or offering a discount:

the benefits of discovering products through creators


Creators influence decision-making. According to the market analysis for influencer marketing, 30% of consumers were influenced by a creator to purchase at least one product.

The same research shows that 46% of internet users follow an influencer for recommendations, and 24% learn about a new product from an influencer daily. Additionally, 31% of consumers recommend a creator to their friends every week.

It turns out:

  • people have more than one reason to follow a creator;
  • they use influencers both to find products and to buy them;
  • they recommend influencers they like — they create an additional network effect.

This means influencers are an ideal marketing tool: they are effective, users love them, and they scale. Right?


Well, not exactly.

There are several problems with influencers, and the main one is fraud. In 2017, a Sway Ops study found that 50% of all interactions with influencer-sponsored posts were fake.

Since then, social media platforms have devoted much effort to fighting bots. For example, in 2020, Instagram introduced a new algorithm to identify bot behavior. If an account behaves suspiciously, Instagram will ask the owner to verify the identity.

Does it help? The problem of fake activity has not gone away and will not go away anytime soon.

From 42% to 67% of influencer accounts on Instagram cheat; they buy followers, likes, comments, and story views. Yes, the share of such accounts is falling, which makes it easier, but not much.

And don’t forget about unconscious fraud. Every one of us has an account on social media, and we are sure you have bots following you, which you do not delete. Nobody knows how many subscribers an influencer has, but everyone has them.

Fake activity translates into financial losses for the advertiser. CHEQ calculated that by purchasing an advertising post for $250, a brand loses $37.5 due to bots — that is, 15%. Not much if you have a great ROMI and a life of chocolate. But if you have to count every penny…

Influencer marketing market analysis: key tendencies


One might object: “But there is fraud in all advertising.” Yes, but not all advertising fraud benefits the publisher who places the advertisement. In this case, the publisher is the influencer. And the more fake activity there is, the higher the perceived value of the creator.

Result: 38% of advertisers encountered fraud from influencers. And these are the ones who found out about the fraud.

The next problem is pricing. The aforementioned market analysis for influencer marketing demonstrated that only 31% of marketers fully understand influencers’ pricing. It’s no surprise that the remaining 69% need clarification.

What is the cost of advertising based on the number of subscribers and engagement or potential ROMI? How do you determine potential ROMI if you have little experience running campaigns? How does the price vary depending on the topic?

Until Facebook (Instagram) and Google (YouTube) centralize the purchase of advertising integrations, we will not get an answer to these questions. TikTok has solved the problem, but its marketplace is very young, and it is not yet known how things are going there.

The third problem is trust. According to the influencer marketing platform market research, 34% of users do not trust influencer reviews. That is, you paid for a review for 10 thousand users, but there are only 6.4 thousand.

Some Internet users believe that influencers distort reality and that opinion leaders exploit the audience’s gullibility. And creators are not helping to resolve the issue. For example, only 14% voluntarily tag advertising posts with unique tags. 

To summarize the pitfalls, the first two problems can be overcome by optimizing algorithms and centralizing advertising. What to do with the third challenge remains an open question.

Let’s answer another question: should content creators influence sales? Objectively speaking, no.

Let’s take the well-known television advertisement. Do those who air advertising on TV expect an immediate increase in sales? No, it’s a long game. Of course, when 1 million viewers see a Coca-Cola Christmas advertisement, some will buy this beverage, and some will buy something else.

But the main goal of the message is to hammer into people’s heads that Coca-Cola is an excellent beverage for holidays.

The same applies to influencers, but in miniature and with greater efficiency.

The coverage is, of course, less. Let’s put aside major creators; thousands will see your advertisement, maybe tens of thousands of users. But the coverage is high-quality: you are not targeting the 25-45 segment, but people with a specific interest, people who trust the person advertising the product.

Neither TV nor influencers are talking about users ready to buy a product. These are people who could potentially be interested in it.

The value of influencers is measured not by direct sales but by such a mysterious indicator as earned media value (EMV).

Earned media value is an indicator for assessing the value of unadvertised or hosted branded content. A creator wrote a post about you for free – you consider the media value. The formulas are different, but essentially:

EMV = (reach/1000)*CPM

Why are we doing all this?

According to various estimates, the influencers’ EMV varies from $4.87 to $5.78 – it all depends on the research and methodology:

formulas earned media value (EMV)

In addition to direct sales, for every dollar invested, you get $5-6 of media value. It results in brand awareness, brand trust, and other things.

As we said, this does not mean influencers are the perfect marketing tool. As well as the calculation formula. It is impossible to measure everything by direct sales.


We found that the market for opinion leaders is proliferating. We also learned that companies believe creators are influential and worth the cost.

But despite the overall success of the segment, it is plagued by problems such as fraud or mistrust on the part of some users.

Today, we primarily discussed the numerical parameters of influencers’ activities: market volume, collaboration costs, and other issues. But if you need to start a quality advertising campaign with an honest influencer matching your target audience, contact Famesters. Our agency will start the collaboration and deliver the best results possible.

Selecting an optimal influencer marketing solution for your exact business needs may seem a bit perplexing, particularly given the multitude of choices available. When deciding on the correct solution, pay attention to the following points:

  • Costs. Consider that an influencer marketing platform should align with your budget while providing the necessary services. Most tools offer several pricing plans to satisfy various needs, and there is always an opportunity to scale up as your requirements grow.
  • Functionality. The platform you are selecting should encompass all the essential features. Assess the suggested filters for narrowing down the search for potential influencers, see if the solution offers analytics and statistics functions, and will the features provided really help you to make an informed decision.

Launch a brand on TikTok and start selling: how-to guide

Launch a brand on TikTok and start selling how-to guide

Thanks to TikTok’s arrival in the digital landscape, the way of delivery of video content to social media users has significantly changed. Over the years of TikTok’s existence, hundreds of brands have been leveraging the short video platform in original ways.

However, starting a successful TikTok account is not as simple as it may seem. The points are that more and more brands and creators saturate the platform, and it becomes quite challenging to stand out. Plus, TikTok’s community resists everything that is too “salesy”. 

If you are among those hesitating whether to launch a brand on TikTok or not, let the Famesters influencer marketing agency help you understand why TikTok can be an effective part of your marketing strategy, as well as how to pre launch a brand and sell your products or services on TikTok.


Unlike other platforms whose mission statements revolve around connection and community, TikTok’s mission is straightforward: to entertain and bring joy. The platform emphasizes its focus on short-form videos, creativity, and capturing everyday moments:

“TikTok is the world’s leading destination for short-form mobile videos. Our mission is to capture and present the world’s creativity, knowledge, and moments that matter in everyday life. TikTok empowers everyone to be a creator directly from their smartphones.”

TikTok presents an avenue for brands to initiate conversations mostly with Generation Z, but not only with this age group. While TikTok originally attracted younger users (13-24 years old), its user base is diversifying. As of 2023, 61% of its users are aged 25 and above. For context, Facebook, which started predominantly with a younger age bracket, now has an average user age of 25-34. TikTok has amassed over one billion active users in just six years, a milestone that took Instagram 12 years.

The most attractive advantage about TikTok is certainly its engagement rates. The short-video platform’s engagement rate is an impressive 5.96%, surpassing both Instagram (0.83%) and Facebook (0.13%). This rate signifies that brands can not only reach but also genuinely interact with their audience on TikTok. Ad content on TikTok looks and feels native, making it more effective.

Summing it all up, TikTok provides an unparalleled advertising opportunity with rapidly diversifying demographics, boasting its high engagement rates. However, to be effective on TikTok, brands need a unique approach tailored to the platform, and different from traditional social media marketing.

Further in this article you’re going to learn how to launch a new brand on TikTok, and also how to start selling your products via the platform. Leverage Famesters’ expert knowledge in favor of your brand: we are happy to share our experience with you.


The TikTok algorithm curates content for individual users’ For You Pages (FYP), ensuring a unique and personalized experience. While the exact workings remain elusive, several factors influence the algorithm. Regard the following rules: 

Rule #1: Regular posting

Consistent content posting boosts brand visibility and is favored by TikTok’s algorithm. The more you post, the more visibility your content gets.

Rule #2: Foster engagement

Content that garners likes, shares, and comments is prioritized on users’ For You Pages . Even if users follow your brand, lack of interaction can reduce content visibility on their FYPs.

Rule #3: Retain viewer attention

The TikTok algorithm favors videos watched completely from start to finish. To rank higher, you should craft content that captivates viewers from the onset and maintains their interest to the end.

In essence, the TikTok algorithm aims to deliver a tailored content experience to each user. Certainly, the TikTok algorithm changes over time. If you stay attuned to changes, strategize content based on these rules, and foster user engagement, you are going to have more chances to make your presence on TikTok visible. 


TikTok provides Personal and Business account options. For brands, the Business Account is more advantageous, offering specialized marketing tools like the Web Business Suite, Commercial Music Library, and Business Creative Hub.

For brands on TikTok, establishing a unique voice and message is crucial for differentiation and building a strong community. The tailored approach helps brands connect more effectively with their audience and harness the potential of the platform. Let’s take Ryanair as an example of a brand establishing its unique voice within the app. Ryanair’s success on TikTok stems from its emphasis on engaging and humorous content prevailing over hard sales. The brand has been making use of a creative TikTok plane face filter.

Launch a brand on TikTok and start selling

TikTok challenges brands to capture attention in mere seconds. And Ryanair demonstrates success in this, with a consistent TikTok style centered on three elements: humor, captions, and videos often under ten seconds. Their creative strategy often draws from community insights and timely situations.


To launch your brand effectively on TikTok, it’s crucial to combine timing, relevance, creativity, and consistency. By crafting a solid TikTok content strategy, you can anchor your brand, ensuring alignment with your goals. 

Identify 3-5 main content themes, or pillars that represent your brand. For example, if you’re a fitness brand, pillars could be workouts, nutrition tips, success stories, and fitness challenges.The best TikTok content either educates, entertains, or both. Think of ways you can provide value to your audience, whether it’s through tips, tutorials, or simply making them laugh.

Your TikTok organic content strategy will be successful if you are bearing in mind the following points.

Posting time and frequency 

Post when your audience is most active. Use analytics to discern optimal posting times. To maintain an organic presence, post at least once daily. The quantity directly affects account growth, with top brands like NBA as examples. By now, the National Basketball Association is the most followed account in sports, having posted more than 2,700 videos.

Content quality

Content on TikTok should be fresh and authentic rather than overly polished. Quick videos are more likely to engage your audience. Plus, remember that Gen Z don’t like straight-forward advertising , and they are not pursuing to be someone else. Your content should be subtle and not salesy.


Soundtracks play a pivotal role in the TikTok experience. More than 90% of TikTok users say that the soundtracks that accompany the videos they watch can either make or break their experience.

TikTok users describe sound on TikTok as almost double the fun compared to other social media platforms


Engage with trends early and ensure they align with your brand’s image. For authenticity, stick to trends that represent your brand genuinely.

TikTok trends typically have a short lifespan of 3-5 days. Engage with trends before they flood the Discovery page. For a broader view of content beyond your niche, set up a secondary, blank TikTok account. Use this secondary account to browse the For You Page, spotting recurrent patterns in actions, music, text, or hashtags. Once a relevant trend is identified, promptly craft and post your brand’s unique take on it.

Descriptions & comments & hashtags

Quality descriptions and active commenting can boost engagement and visibility as well as the use of niche and relevant hashtags. Hashtags, both trending and branded, are essential tools on TikTok for reaching and engaging with audiences. They categorize content, facilitating discoverability, and can lead users to explore a plethora of related videos. While popular hashtags can boost visibility, they also bring increased competition. Notable examples include #duet, #TikTokDance, and #LearnOnTikTok, among others. 

Understanding audience

Know your audience’s preferences and engage your followers with resonant content. Continuous experimentation is encouraged. You can utilize TikTok analytics as well as use external tools to keep track of your performance indicators to have deeper insights. If you turn to the Fameters full-cycle influencer marketing agency, we’ll start exactly from a thorough analysis of the market you need to win, your target audience’s behavior & perception, your competitors’ strategies and performance. We aim to build a solid base for your successful campaign.

Niche content

TikTok supports niche content, offering both reach and engagement. The platform’s design caters to specific interest communities. “You’d expect niche content to have less reach but a higher engagement rate, but the reach and impressions of niche content still does phenomenally well on TikTok, compared to any other platform. This tells us that being niche on the platform is highly effective”. (Source: The Drum)

By following these guidelines, brands can effectively leverage TikTok for organic growth and meaningful audience engagement. If you want to get more advice on how to launch a brand and enhance its visibility on TikTok, then move to the following step. 


Partnering with relevant TikTok influencers can boost brand visibility organically. Authentic content by creators resonates more with audiences, leading to trust and engagement. TikTok influencers can provide value like entertainment, education or inspiration, rather than pushing products overtly.

Influencers play a significant role not only in product discovery but also in affecting purchase decisions. 21% of social media users between 18-54 years have made purchases based on influencer recommendations. This influence is even more pronounced among Gen Z users, with 32% admitting to making purchases due to influencer endorsements, indicating a stronger impact on this generation compared to others.

Launch a brand on TikTok and start selling

One of the tendencies is that relatability becomes a key factor in content consumption. 63% of marketers find relatable content most effective. As trust in influencers wanes, those who are relatable are becoming more popular. A study by Matter communications showed 61% of consumers prefer relatable personalities, while 43% lean towards expert personalities. Meanwhile, the preference for celebrity personalities has dropped, with only 11% favoring them, down from 17-22% in 2020. This decline is probably due to the perception that celebrities depict unrelatable experiences.

A very good example of successful collaboration with influencers is Crocs footwear experience: the brand effectively utilized TikTok creators to boost its promotion by launching the #ThousandDollarCrocs hashtag challenge. Promoting their new line, they collaborated with carefully chosen TikTok creators to share videos of them wearing Crocs, as if they had paid a thousand dollars for them. Videos were backed by a Post Malone track. The challenge’s success was amplified when Crocs teamed up with Post Malone directly, resulting in the hashtag going viral, the shoe line selling out, and an 18% increase in followers.

The success of such partnerships hinges on the mutual fit between the brand and the TikTok creators. Selecting the right creator involves considering their audience and content alignment with the brand. Brands should build genuine relationships with creators by treating them as partners and giving them creative freedom. If you need help in identifying the right creators for your influencer marketing campaign and in strengthening relationships with TikTok influencers, don’t hesitate to contact the Famesters agency where a team of dedicated experts know very well how to make your brand stand out on TikTok.

  • Sync your store’s catalog to TikTok, adding a shopping tab to your profile
  • Insert direct product links in videos to facilitate purchases
  • Enhance ad efficiency with the TikTok Pixel for tracking website visitors

TikTok not only offers a vast audience but also provides a convenient and cost-effective platform for businesses to showcase and sell products.

TikTok Live Shopping phenomenon

The pandemic significantly accelerated the growth of live shopping on social media. From March 2020 to July 2021, global live commerce purchases surged by 76%. Livestreams have a conversion rate ten times higher than other e-commerce formats.

Initially originated in China and more popular in Asian countries (by now), livestream shopping is steadily spreading across the US and European countries. The US live shopping industry is projected to be worth $35 billion by 2024. In comparison, China’s live shopping sector is already deeply ingrained in its social shopping culture, and is expected to reach $400 billion. Around 45% of China’s online shoppers are engaged in livestream shopping.

TikTok, with its roots in China, excels in livestream selling. TikTok Live Shopping is a feature allowing brands to present their products in real-time livestreams. Users can interact with brands, purchase items without exiting the app, and enjoy an experience reminiscent of TV shopping channels, but with a modern twist targeting younger consumers.

TikTok live shopping events will be especially successful in partnership with the platform’s content creators. Inviting TikTok influencers to represent your brand will lead to even more engagement and sales boost. With TikTok live shopping, your conversion rates are sure to go higher, and return rates are going to decrease.

Thus, live shopping has become a logical step in brand-influencer relationships. Live shopping perfectly fits into influencer marketing campaigns, as TikTok content creators are exactly those ideal presenters able to host your live events.


For a brand to thrive on TikTok, it’s vital to monitor and refine performance metrics. While TikTok offers basic in-app analytics, broader insights may require looking beyond these. Key metrics to track include engagement, follower growth, hashtag performance, top posts, and optimal posting times. Although TikTok’s analytics are still evolving, a brand profile offers important metrics like reach and engagement. Employing influencers can help track sales via affiliate links.

What is a thought leader in influencer marketing?

What is a thought leader

Table of Contents

When considering the landscape of influencer marketing, thought leaders hold a unique position. Unlike traditional influencers, who might gain their following from entertainment or lifestyle content, thought leaders earn their reputation through expertise, insights, and contributions to a particular field or industry. In essence, thought leaders bridge the gap between expertise and influence. For brands operating in sectors where depth of knowledge and trust are crucial (such as FinTech business, for instance) partnering with thought leaders can be a powerful component of their influencer marketing strategy. 

According to the Edelman-LinkedIn research, 58% of respondents turn to thought leaders’ content one or more hours per week. 60% of decision makers admitted that thought leadership convinced them to purchase a product or service they were not previously taking into consideration. In this article experts of the Famesters full-cycle influencer marketing agency are going to explain what is a thought leader, and how thought leaders can contribute to your influencer marketing campaigns.


While not every influencer can be called a thought leader, the same is for thought leaders: they are not always influencers. But what is a thought leader in terms of influencer marketing

A thought leader, also known as a key opinion leader, is a highly respected professional in a specific industry or field due to their extensive expertise. With backgrounds rooted in significant experience, research, and publication, they are considered authority figures in their domain. Thought leaders can feature in media interviews, providing their personal views on current topics within their specialty. Such content is often full of genuine research and insights. By the way, the role of a thought leader for B2B marketing can be very important: studies say that research-based content is an essential trigger to take a sales call.

Further, thought leaders invest in their niche, striving to be experts on specific topics. They are driven by quality and authentic content, aiming to educate their audiences with detailed and relevant information. Their opinions are respected and valued in their community, often without a large online presence. Unlike most social media influencers, closely tied to social media and online platforms, thought leaders are often invited to speak at offline industry events, webinars, or podcasts. 

In comparison, regular influencers can have millions of followers on social media but don’t always possess deep expertise. They market themselves by producing online content and interacting with their audiences. Unlike influencers, whose main income comes from social media content, thought leaders often have full-time roles like authors, consultants, or entrepreneurs. Let’s take an example of Gordon Ramsay, a British celebrity chef and restaurateur, who gained recognition through his culinary expertise and achievements. His restaurant group has been awarded 17 Michelin stars overall. At the same time Gordon Ramsay has recently become a TikTok celebrity with more than 39 million followers. 

What is a thought leader in influencer marketing

n essence, while thought leaders are respected for their expertise and experience, influencers gain traction primarily through their online reach and engagement. Content creators can gain popularity quickly through content curation and understanding online trends. But often niche thought leaders can become influencers. The same as there are micro-influencers with considerable knowledge and passion for specific topics, creating an overlap with thought leaders.  

Read more on the topic:


Purpose and goals

Content marketing focuses on solving immediate problems, acting as a resource tool. For example, a skincare influencer is promoting a new moisturizer. Thought leaders’ content aims to spark conversations with fresh insights, statistics, and new ideas.

The performance metrics (your KPIs) for each differ, with content marketing possibly focusing on site traffic and email signups, while thought leadership looks at return visitors, engaged email subscribers, and social media discussions.

Quality vs. quantity

Content marketing often emphasizes volume and trending topics while thought leadership prioritizes quality and may result in fewer, more in-depth posts. It should also provide a perspective on how brands adapt to industry changes. Thought leaders base their content on thorough research to uncover untouched topics and upcoming trends, making it essential to understand the audience’s concerns.

Sales intent

Content marketing usually aims to sell a company’s products or services by showcasing why they’re the best choice. Thought leaders don’t directly promote products. Instead, they emphasize the brand’s authority and expertise, allowing readers to form their own conclusions.

Industry influence

Thought leaders seek to shape the industry narrative. Notable industry leaders, like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs in tech, have set the tone for discussions in their sectors. When key opinion leaders endorse brands within their expertise, they bring not just attention but also an expert recommendation to that brand.


Social media influencers and thought leaders are both authoritative figures online, but they serve different purposes. Partnering with social media influencers, brands can quickly expand their reach and increase sales. In its turn, cooperation with thought leaders can make brands be perceived more authoritative in their niche. Let’s examine what is the role of a thought leader, and how they can act as influencers.

Domain expertise

Thought leaders possess deep knowledge in their respective domains. Brands can leverage this expertise for campaigns that require a nuanced understanding of specific topics, ensuring content is both authentic and accurate.

Content collaboration

Thought leaders can co-create content with brands, such as whitepapers, research studies, webinars, or long-form content. This not only boosts the content’s credibility but also extends its reach to a relevant audience.

Events and webinars

Given their expertise, thought leaders are often invited to speak at industry events, webinars, and conferences. Partnering with them for such appearances can position a brand as a leader in the field.

Long-term partnerships

Unlike many influencer partnerships that can be short-term or campaign-specific, collaborations with thought leaders can be ongoing, deepening the association and credibility over time.

Educating and informing

While traditional influencers might focus on product promotion, thought leaders can educate audiences about a brand’s value proposition, the science or technology behind a product, or broader industry trends that align with a brand’s messaging.

Diverse media channels

Thought leaders often contribute to industry publications, journals, and other authoritative platforms. Collaborating with them can get a brand’s message published on these platforms, reaching a targeted and loyal audience.

Micro vs. Macro

Just as in traditional influencer marketing, there are micro- and macro-thought leaders. Micro- thought leaders have a smaller, highly engaged audience in niche sectors, while macro-thought leaders have broader appeal. Brands can choose whom to partner with based on their campaign goals.

Read more on the topic:

Trustworthiness and authentic audience engagement

Thought leaders usually have a more engaged and niche following because their audience values the insights and expertise they bring. This means collaborations are likely to generate meaningful interactions rather than just surface-level engagement. Plus, since thought leaders are respected for their knowledge and insights, their endorsement or collaboration with a brand can transfer some of this trust to the brand itself.

Higher ROI

Due to the loyal and targeted nature of their audience, partnerships with thought leaders might yield a higher ROI. The role of a thought leader is especially important in sectors where domain expertise and trust are paramount.

The marketing domain is undergoing a significant shift, blending traditional and digital strategies. While content marketing focuses on immediate solutions and sales, thought leaders can position a brand as a forward-thinking authority in their field. Both approaches serve different but complementary purposes in the business realm.

Before investing in endorsements from influencers or thought leaders, it’s essential to perform thorough market research. Brands should aim to cultivate long-term relationships with chosen thought leaders so that their cooperation could produce better results. Here at Famesters influencer-marketing agency we effectively help brands to create a data-driven influencer marketing strategy, based on a deep market and competitor analysis.

How to encourage users to download your app: strategies and tactics

How to encourage app downloads

Table of Contents

There are millions of apps on Google Play store and the App store. To be more exact, it is estimated that Android users are able to choose between 3.55 million apps (making Google Play the biggest app store), and there are about 1.6 million apps for iOS (making the Apple App Store the second-largest app store). What that means for your new, well-designed and very useful mobile app is that you have a huge number of competitors. You need to elaborate a robust strategy to increase your mobile app downloads.

Fortunately, there exist quite many effective methods of how to encourage users to download your app. If you’re ready to develop an effective marketing plan, take time to read this article and get to know actionable strategies and impactful tactics to increase app downloads. You’re going to learn how important are appealing app logos, which is better to prioritize – SEO or ASO, what is the role of effective content creation, and also – how to promote your mobile app with influencer marketing. The team of Famesters, a full-cycle influencer marketing agency, are great experts in the industry who are ready to share recent trends and insights with you. Read further to learn more!


The design of an app icon plays a pivotal role in attracting users. The majority of consumers, about 60%, tend to avoid brands with unappealing logos. Overwhelming 78% of participants of another study consider logos to be “works of art”. Another 42% believe that logos reflect a company’s personality and can indicate whether a business is high quality or not.  

As the initial point of contact in an app store, an app’s icon should not only be attractive but also effectively communicate the brand and the app’s functionality. A well-crafted icon can positively influence download rates, helping an app stand out amidst vast competition. While it’s essential to make the icon eye-catching, it’s equally crucial to keep its design simple and direct to prevent confusion. In essence, the app icon serves as the face of your app brand and needs careful consideration in its design.

Here you can learn about the experience of “Piano Master 2” app creators who wanted to update their logo to stand out from the competition. A/B testing helped them to choose the best design from a number of versions proposed. The difference in conversions between the worst logo and the best one appeared to be fourfold! The final version of the icon increased downloads by 34%.

If you’re developing a mobile app, A/B testing is a great technique to determine how effective a logo is. The results of this case show how much a logo design can influence a user’s decision to download an app.

How to encourage users to download your app


App Store Optimization (ASO) is a strategy aimed at increasing an app’s visibility and download rates within app marketplaces, such as Apple’s App Store or Google Play Store. The thing is that most users find apps through app store searches. Studies indicate that browsing in an app store drives 63% of iOS app discoveries and 58% for Android. Much like SEO for websites, ASO focuses on improving various elements related to the app’s listing.

How to encourage users to download your app

Source: Techcrunch.com

ASO Elements:

Title: An effective app title should be catchy, unique, and descriptive. Avoid generic titles to stand out.

Keywords: Incorporate relevant keywords in the app’s title and description. Keywords significantly boost ranking, but stuffing should be avoided.

Description: Should be compelling and keyword-optimized. Overstuffing can lead to penalties.

Screenshots: Visuals should be engaging and offer insight into the app’s functionality. Shots showcasing actual app interface can give potential users a clear idea of its features. Try to use compelling screenshots, photos, and videos on your app page to boost engagement. Highlight the crucial features of your app using design elements like arrows. 

App Usage Metrics: Rankings are influenced by usage frequency, download-to-uninstall ratios, and overall engagement.

Categories: Choose app categories wisely to ensure relevance and avoid overly saturated ones.

Reviews: Positive reviews can bolster app ranking. Favorable reviews tell the app store algorithm that your mobile app is valuable and popular among users. This makes it position your app higher. Thus, your steps to engage users and prompt them for feedback can be as follows:

  • Encourage reviews and testimonials

Reviews act as social proof, convincing potential users of the app’s quality and reliability. You can encourage reviews through in-app messages or follow-up emails, especially after a user has a successful interaction with the app, like completing a task or making a purchase. 

  • Address negative reviews

Negative reviews are inevitable, but they should be minimized as much as possible. The best way to do this is by offering a superior user experience and addressing complaints swiftly.

  • Interact with users

Engaging with users by responding to their comments and complaints builds trust and enhances the app’s credibility. This can also lead to more organic downloads. 

  • Motivate users for referrals

Using a referral program is also one of the effective tactics to increase app downloads. Existing users can be turned into ‘brand ambassadors’ by offering them incentives like free storage space or discounts for referring the app to others.

Importance of localization for ASO

For apps designed with a global audience in mind, localization is crucial. Developing an app in multiple languages can significantly increase its download rate, with studies indicating that merely localizing app keywords can enhance downloads by sevenfold. Many non-English speakers prefer using apps in their native languages. Catering to multiple languages can become a good strategy to increase mobile app download rates, for both Android and iOS platforms. 

Here you can learn about one app developer who has discovered how to encourage app download by 767% with the help of keywords localization.

In essence, ASO is essential for developers seeking better visibility and higher downloads for their apps. Being consistent and attentive to all aspects of optimization can lead to increased app discoverability and success. ASO isn’t a one-time task. Regular refinement and A/B testing can help in achieving optimal results.


Having a dedicated website for your app is a fundamental step in digital marketing. A website enhances discoverability as users still often search for apps or related services on search engines like Google. This online presence should prioritize SEO and feature engaging content like images and teaser videos, having a clear call-to-action leading to the app’s download page. 

Beyond just having a website, integrating a blog is beneficial. This can provide users with updates, tips, and related content that drives more visibility and traffic, eventually boosting app downloads. 

Additionally, websites can aid in data collection for email marketing and further user engagement. Besides, using a dedicated website for your app allows you to employ ad retargeting. This strategy targets ads at visitors who explored your site but didn’t download your app, reminding them about your product on other platforms.

Overall, to effectively market a mobile app, brands should leverage the broader digital ecosystem, ensuring their app is easily discoverable and relevant.


Investing in content is crucial for app promotion. Content marketing can effectively promote various apps. Apart from creating a website and adding blogs to your app’s website, you can promote your app on social media, for example creating YouTube tutorials, or launching a podcast series. A notable example is Evernote, which shares user surveys and productivity-related content. 

Depending on your audience’s preferences, you can use articles, videos, infographics, behind-the-scenes content, and many other formats. Utilize hashtagged campaigns to enhance brand awareness or showcase new features. For instance, gaming apps can benefit from walkthrough videos, showcasing gameplay and visuals. Leveraging user-generated content also fosters a community feeling around your app.

Promote your app effectively on a dedicated website as well as on social media by understanding your target audience and selecting the right platform and the right content formats accordingly.

Video content

Videos, particularly introduction videos, can significantly increase conversion rates. Ensure they’re concise unless it’s a detailed Q&A or a live stream. Consider creating explainer videos that outline your app’s unique features and functionality, and if needed, seek help from professional video production companies.

To better convey your app’s advantages, create a 30-second demo video highlighting its primary functions and user-friendly features. After production, distribute the video on your website, social media, and within your app store listing.

Consistently publishing relevant content not only attracts users but also improves your website’s SEO. Including pitches for your app within your content can further boost app awareness and interest.


Today we can hardly imagine any marketing efforts without collaborations with relevant content creators. Once you’ve made your best in terms of ASO and SEO, and you’re having a robust content strategy, it’s high time to move further. Promoting your mobile app via influencers can bring you to the next level. This is not only about expanding reach but also about boosting app visibility and trustworthiness. No doubt, it’s quite another thing when a potential user gets to know about a new promising app from a personality who has a particular influence in this or that niche. Trusted experts know very well how to encourage app downloads by reviewing your app in front of their dedicated followers.
