Influencers often termed as ‘micro-influencers’, have lower follower counts in a given niche than their more famous counterparts though they have intensely engaged audiences.
Accounts with less than 25,000 followers are generally considered micro-influencers.
Micro-influencers are called upon to promote online growth when you have few followers as it’s one of the best ways to drive up sales.
Micro-influencers achieve more than twenty times more conversations than average consumers when recommending products.
Over eighty percent of consumers state that they were ‘highly likely’ to follow a recommendation made by a micro-influencer.
Tools like ‘influence.co’ help to connect the right type of micro-influencer with suitable online businesses.

Final tip: Try not to use the same micro-influencer more than once or twice. You’ll start to see
