How Influencer Marketing Drives eCommerce Conversions

Influencer marketing has changed drastically in recent years. More and more retailers are finding that influencers drive eCommerce conversions and sales, yet few know how to properly leverage an influencer marketing strategy.

There is a distinct strategy to finding and building an influencer marketing network that is robust and is successful. 86% of brands used influencer marketing as part of their marketing mix. In an increasingly digital shopping landscape, user-generated content is a form of marketing that feels more authentic.

Influencers add a human element to the digital feel of eCommerce. Influencers can include employees, customers, celebrities, and content creators. They can show how your product really works, what their experience was with your service, how they uniquely use your product, or reveal new offerings for your company.
