How BuzzFeed, Cosmopolitan, And The New York Times Are Marketing With Social Media Influencers
It isn’t just brands that are using influencers anymore — publishers are getting onboard, too. Leveraging social media influencers’ power and pull for original and branded content, publishers are boosting traffic and upping the efficacy of content created in partnership with brands. In a world where ad blockers are putting a serious dent in publishers’ ability to bring in ad revenue, they’re finding new ways to drive traffic and step out of the traditional (ergo blockable) advertising.
Influencers are proven experts when it comes to reaching and engaging audiences, which makes them a natural fit for helping publishers capture audience attention. BuzzFeed, Refinery29, The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, and more are building influencer networks to strengthen the performance of branded content and are even using some influencers in original content to drive traffic and boost advertising demand.
