The 10 Instagram Micro Influencers Marketers Should Follow Before They're Famous

As social media continues to grow, so too does its capacity to foster original content creators and influencers. Instagram, in particular, is a common starting point for content creators looking to build a following. As such, Instagram has become a hub for micro influencers —  content creators with less than 100,000 followers.

The growing popularity of the influencer marketing industry has prompted brands to partner with micro influencers, who are often viewed as a way to reach smaller and niche audiences. We’ve compiled a list of the top micro influencers on Instagram in 5 major categories: fashion, travel, food, fitness, and photography.

    More than 80k is a micro-influencer for you? I get less than that views per month on my blog, yet exert a bit of influence in the sports watch market for which people find that blog…

    • http://mediakix.com/ Mediakix

      We define micro influencers as influencers with less than 100k followers. There are certainly tons of influential social media influencers out there in that range!
