How influencers are transforming the industry

In today’s rapidly evolving tech industry, influencers are playing a significant role in shaping storytelling and trends in the marketplace. Topics like Cybersecurity and AI were not on the radar of the average consumer a year or two ago which has created the perfect opportunity for “techfluencers” to establish themselves as subject matter experts in a relatively short period of time.  


Fast-growing industries like tech can benefit greatly from the power of influencers as trusted experts who invest their own time and resources to research and evaluate new tech or product offerings. Influencer marketing in technology can help a brand build awareness to a very niche audience interested in exploring the newest and greatest in products such as cameras, laptops, smartphones or hotspot technology.  


How influencers establish credibility and authenticity in the tech space

Influencers across industries have built the trust and loyalty of their audiences by sharing their thoughts, opinions, reviews and ideas about specific products or services. They share authentic personal experiences and perspectives and translate complex information into valuable insights for the consumer.  Whether a tech influencer is comparing two products based on real-time functionality, forecasting their predictions on how the industry might evolve, or providing a third-party endorsement, it is important for influencers to remain authentic and transparent.


How influencers introduce and popularize new tech trends

Top brands like Apple and Sony create hype and attention with digital, real-time events to launch products with potential customers tuning in from different time zones. This immediate access to information, allows influencers to curate and share their take on new and trending tech gadgets and tools in real-time to their vast and engaged networks. Gone are the days of news releases and newspaper fliers as the main tactics for a product launch.


Importance of selecting influencers whose audiences match tech brands'

Working with an influencer whose audience is aligned to your product or brand is crucial to the success of a campaign. You want to ensure that the content is relevant to the audience to ensure optimal engagement. By researching and vetting the creator and their audience, you can reach a very specific and attuned audience. If a creator is a Mac user and all of a sudden begins promoting Microsoft products, their following will become frustrated.


Emerging trends and opportunities in tech influencer marketing

Influencer marketing is growing in popularity as a way to target a niche and engaged audience and enhance brand reputation through a trusted voice.  As marketers become more savvy, they are working with more micro and nano influencers as subject matter experts to reach a niche, qualified audience. We will see more brands looking for long-term partnerships rather than one-offs as a way to generate ongoing content to cut through the noise and rise above the competition. Additionally, TikTok continues to grow as a platform and while Brands have a hard time breaking into this space, collaborating with influencers helps brands expand their reach into this important platform.
