Why Influencer Marketing is Your Best Marketing Investment When You Have Little Marketing Budget [Nisarg Shah Interview]

While we have covered a lot about influencer marketing on this podcast, there is one facet that we haven't looked at: The cost-effectiveness of influencer marketing.

As we head towards a potential recession in 2023 and marketing budgets are tight, this becomes even more important. That's why on this episode we will focus on why influencer marketing is such a great marketing investment when budgets are tight.

Topics we will cover include:

  • Why Influencer Marketing is the most flexible form of marketing investment through payment, product gifting, mentions, and more
  • The value of more authentic and relatable content to spend on vs. advertising push done directly by you
  • The fact that during a recession, people turn toward trusted voices
  • Influencers as affiliates = Measurable ROI + Massive Reach
