Macro Influencers

Get to Know Macro Influencers

In this golden age of social media, influencers are one of the most influential professions for brand awareness activities. Therefore, not a few brands collaborate with various influencers in an effort to make their marketing campaign strategies a success, starting from Mega Influencers, Macro Influencers, Micro-Influencers, to Nano Influencers.

Well, in this article, we will discuss one of the four categories above, namely Macro Influencers.

What are Macro Influencers? How big is the impact?

Get to know Macro Influencers

According to a quote from Upluence, Macro Influencers are professional influencers who have 500,000 to 1,000,000 followers on social media.

Usually they are more active on Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube, and dedicate most of their time to creating engaging content on these social media. In Indonesia, maybe Socialty knows him better as “Selebgram”.

Macro Influencers vs Micro Influencers, What’s the Difference?

As mentioned earlier, in Influencer Marketing, influencers are divided into four categories based on the number of followers (followers) they have on social networks. Besides Mega Influencers, Nano Influencers, and Macro Influencers, there are also Micro-Influencers.

Then, what is the difference between these Macro and Micro-Influencers?

Unlike Macro, which has a wider follower range, Micro-Influencers can be said to be the ‘lite’ version, Socialty!

Influencers who fall into this micro category have a number of followers at 10,000 to 50,000 people.

Even though they are relatively small, their influence in increasing engagement is also no less large, you know.

Advantages of Macro Influencers

Socialty must be curious, how much benefit can we get if we work with this type of influencer. Here are some reasons why Macro Influencer services are needed in the world of digital campaigns:

Reach a Wider Audience

Influencers in this category have a wider and wider audience reach, which means there are more pairs of eyes seeing the promotional content posted. This of course will have a big impact on the brands that collaborate with them because they get the attention of the same large audience.

Increase Brand Awareness and Sales

Macro Influencers usually have millions of followers from various backgrounds, which will be very helpful for brands who want to campaign their business to various (non-specific) target audiences.

With such a wide audience reach, it is not impossible that the products promoted by the influencer will be sold out in a matter of hours–or even minutes, you know!

High Credibility and More Expert

This third point is also one of the advantages that should be taken into account. Judging from the number of masses, Socialty can say that Macro Influencers are not beginner influencers.

They certainly have more experience in running marketing campaigns, and even have their own team – whether it’s a photographer, videographer, or manager who specializes in handling content marketing strategies.

That way, they are more professional and are experts in their fields.

Weaknesses of Macro Influencers

Where there are advantages, there must also be disadvantages. Macro influencers are no exception. Anything?

Relatively High Price

Macro-type influencers are indeed very effective in increasing brand awareness, but the costs that need to be spent are clearly much more expensive.

But, maybe the effect you get will be proportional to the budget that comes out, huh!

Sometimes Many Requirements Are Not Easy

When a Macro Influencer agrees to collaborate with you, it is likely that there will be many requirements from them that you must fulfill.

For example, when you invite them to take a shoot at a place, they may ask you to prepare various first class facilities during your activities in that place.

Indeed, not all macro influencers have quite difficult demands, but they definitely need comfort as well for smooth collaboration.

Longer Process

To invite Macro Influencers to work together, it is not limited to sending direct messages (DM) to their social media accounts, then talking about things related to collaboration. When compared to Micro Influencers, pre-collaborating with macro influencers requires extra effort.

For example, you have to first contact their manager or agency, then after that you have to go through an interview process to find out how well your brand fits the influencer and his audience, until finally you have to wait for your turn again because the influencer is still bound by an agreement with a row of other brands.

Engagement tends to be low

With more diverse and non-specific followers, it could be that macro influencers don’t have a relationship that is too engaged with their audience.

This is due to their limitations in responding to comments, or simply answering audience questions in direct messages (DM). So, brands that need the active involvement of the influencer will definitely find it difficult.

Brand Ambassador

Brand Ambassador: Understanding, Tasks, and Tips for Becoming a BA!

Socialty must have heard the term Brand Ambassador, right? Starting from beauty brands, fashion, or even technology brands also have brand ambassadors (BA) as their representation.

The function of “brand ambassador” aka brand ambassador is not only as a representation or brand representative. However, the existence of BA actually has a big influence on brands or companies, you know. About anything, huh?

Well, in this Socialights article, we will thoroughly discuss the things you need to know about brand ambassadors. Stay tuned!

What are Brand Ambassadors?

From what is stated on the EveryoneSocial page, brand ambassadors are people who are hired to represent a brand–or company to increase brand awareness, and to drive product sales to new audiences.

These people usually come from celebrities or public figures with large audiences.

In the B2B business, the brand ambassadors employed are from among the employees of their own company. For example, employees from the Marketing, Sales, Human Resources (HR) divisions, or the Product Engineering division.

Then, does the brand ambassador get paid for this job? Of course. However, the amount of salary they get depends on the contract agreement; some are hourly, and some are daily, weekly, or even yearly.

Duties of a Brand Ambassador

As someone who represents a brand, BA certainly has several duties and responsibilities that must be carried out. These tasks are usually stated in the cooperation contract or agreement. Then, what are the duties of BA? Check it out below!

Brand Promotion Media on Social Media

In the digital era, promotions use social media a lot. If BA usually promotes products through advertisements on television, nowadays most of them have turned to social media. BA has a special task to promote the advantages of the brand and its products to the audience.

The frequency of promotion time carried out by BA is quite frequent when compared to influencers who both promote brands/products on social media. This is because BA and the company are bound by long-term contracts. So, BA is very likely to promote products from a brand for several campaign programs.

Maintaining a Positive Brand Reputation

Brand Ambassadors have more responsibility to maintain the reputation or image of the brand. The reason is, BA is the same as a brand representative. Maintaining a brand reputation helps increase public trust. The more trusted by the public, the better the reputation of the brand.

Bringing Brands and Customers closer

Brand ambassadors have their own target audience. Audiences who have followed the BA have great potential to use the products being promoted. If someone becomes a BA and promotes products from a brand, the brand will be closer to the customer or vice versa.

As for some other BA tasks, namely:

  • Have thorough knowledge of the brand it represents
  • Help plan, develop, and implement marketing campaign ideas or endorsements with the sales & marketing team
  • Help check and analyze product features
  • Maintain good relations with all relevant teams in the company, with clients, and with customers
  • Representing the brand or company at various important events; such as conferences, seminars, or media coverage
  • Participate in analyzing the results of marketing campaigns and strategies.

Difference between Brand Ambassador and Influencer

Both promote brands and products through social media, surely you are wondering about the difference between BA and influencer. Actually, BA and influencer have some differences. To put it simply, BA is mostly more exclusive to regularly promoting 1-2 brands.

Brand Ambassador as the face of a brand will focus more on increasing brand awareness of the product. Meanwhile, influencers mostly focus on sales, thus encouraging people to buy and use the product.

In terms of the employment contract, BA has a longer contract. In addition to long contracts, some brands require that a BA be bound by a contract only to the brand under the company’s umbrella. This is different from influencers who only promote on one campaign or a short period of time.

If you still want to know more about influencers, you can read the article here.

In essence, as reported by the Majestic Monitor page, influencers can promote products in their own unique way in a short period of time; eg for one, two, or three times posting.

Reasons a Business Needs a Brand Ambassador

As quoted from Sideqik, the points below will show the reasons why a business needs the services of a BA for its marketing success. Anything?

Protecting Company Reputation

As long as a representative of the company, BA should be fully responsible for the reputation of the company. BA must display the best image in the eyes of the public. If it’s the other way around, the company will also be affected and even lose big.

Moreover, BA commitments are longer and longer than influencers, so they must always make a good impression while they are with the company, or even beyond.

Audience of High Potential Brand Ambassador

You could say, BA is a “word of mouth” weapon in advertising. Socialty definitely understands how effective word of mouth is to promote products. Anyway, it’s no less effective than promoting through digital platforms. Well, BA is one of the parties that can do this word-of-mouth promotion.

Through its relationships – both online and in the real world, BA can build the trust of its audience in the products being promoted. We also definitely believe more in product reviews that are recommended directly by our friends, right?

That’s roughly the function of BA: to build trust and provide insight regarding its brand so that brand awareness and sales can increase.

Increase Website Visitor Traffic

This is a great advantage if the brand ambassador himself also has a blog or website. BA can contribute by creating marketing-smelling content on his blog.

In addition, BA can backlink, or link a URL link to the company’s website on its website blog. Where later the blog audience from BA can directly visit the company’s website. The result? Traffic visitors to the company’s site can be crowded, deh!

Tips for Becoming a Brand Ambassador

So, if you want to become a BA, what do you need to have? Or, how?

Have a Unique Personality

“Unique” here means that you must have its own characteristics. What you display in the public eye, must be related to the brand you represent.

For example, you are BA from a healthy food brand. Through social media, blogs, or other platforms, you can display your “healthy” lifestyle by diligently exercising, introducing various types of complete nutritious foods, and using healthy food products from the brand you represent.

Social Media Savvy is a Must!

In addition to word of mouth, you really need to promote via social media. Therefore, a BA must understand how to use social media very well – including creating content on it.

Find the Brand You Want to Represent

If you become a BA, you can start looking for brands whose niche suits you. If you are an athlete, it means that you are very suitable to represent a sports product brand.

According to SendPulse, it’s a good idea to first learn about your target brand about their values, basic principles, and what kind of people they need.

Ready to “Join” Wherever the Company Goes

Like an “official bond”, you must be ready to attend various events that are made or attended by the company later. Whether it’s just attending–or even leading an event, a BA position will give you more opportunities to travel with the company.

Well, now you know a few things about brand ambassadors, right?
