With an incredible number of customers worldwide using social media daily, utilizing the medium as a marketing tool is a must for businesses. Social media allows for immediate interaction and customer feedback and is a convenient avenue for brands to respond to customers right away. How else can social media be used to a business’s advantage? Influencers and content creators are at the forefront of social media and have proven to be an invaluable gateway to reaching new audiences while keeping current customers engaged.
When deciding whether an influencer or a content creator is the best choice for a social media marketing strategy, it is best to truly understand the difference between the two. Simply put, an influencer is someone with the power to affect the actions of others, and a content creator creates original content and shares it on social media.
Farrar adds, “The main difference between influencers and content creators is the purpose behind their social media presence.” An influencer’s goal is to build a large following, speak to new demographics, introduce a new brand to a niche community, and help spark valuable conversation. The goal of a content creator is to use content as a form of self-expression. Using digital media as a platform, content creators often target a specific audience and incorporate unique graphics, audio, video, and written word.
A pro tip for businesses to consider – some influencers double as content creators, offering great content with a larger customer reach.
