1. Quickly builds trust of your brand
Video content creators have very strong connection with their fans, so there’s no surprise where did influencer’s name came from. That’s because video creators have massive influence on their audience. People generally trust what YouTube influencers say and brands, products or services they recommend.
Average YouTube user usually doesn’t even understand that influencer’s content may be sponsored by some brand. So, they take influencer’s recommendation on some brand’s products and services as 100% honest opinion. Brands can use it for their advantage to promote their products or services. And so can you!
Even if your brand doesn’t have many positive reviews online, if influencer presents your product or service to the audience, then many of them won’t even seek for more reviews. Even one influencer’s mention of your product or service instantly makes your brand legitimate and trustable in their eyes. That’s the real power of influencer advertising – “word of mouth” marketing in big scale.
2. Lifetime promotion
When we talk about any form of advertisement on social media, we always know that it’s a temporary promotion. If you use Google Ads, once someone clicked your ad and your campaign’s budget went down to zero, promotion ends. If you pay Instagram influencer to promote your account by giving a shoutout, they charge you for one week, one day, or even just one hour of promotion!
But that’s not the case with YouTube influencer advertising and it is one of the main reasons why using YouTube influencer for marketing purposes can be extremely profitable for your brand.
When YouTube influencer includes promotion of your brand to their video and publishes it, it becomes timeless. If some day influencer would decide to remove advertisement from that video, the only thing he could do is to remove the whole video! And that’s not what YouTube creators want to do.
It is much different compared to Instagram influencer’s post, where influencer can easily remove sponsored post and that’s about it.
So, till influencer’s YouTube channel is active and running, you will be receiving hits even many years later! This means continuous every day promotion of your brand. Isn’t it great? That’s why you can pay extra for YouTube influencer’s advertising if you think long-term about your digital marketing strategy.
