Growing Your Side Hustle With Social Media Influencers

We’re betting that when you think of social media influencers, the Kardashian-Jenner gals, and their respective Instagram posts immediately popped into your minds.

In truth though, social media influence goes far beyond celebrities like Kim!

Consider these Statista findings:

– Influencer marketing was worth $13.8 billion worldwide in 2021, double the market value from the year before.
– Instagram is the most popular platform for influencer marketing. With 6.12 million sponsored posts on Instagram in a year, the platform’s influencer marketing value is about $2.3 billion.
– Companies are known to spend their marketing budget on YouTube posts featuring influencers (While YouTube is technically a search engine and not a social media platform, it’s another important channel used by influencers)
– TikTok is another popular platform for influencers.
– For every $1 spent on influencer marketing, the average return on investment (ROI) is around $18.

So, what is the relevance of all this to your side hustle?
