What do you call a marketer who can individually steer your brand and help it taste success in the shortest possible time? The answer is, Influencer.
Usually, you would know the name of the agency handling your promotion, and not the actual person who is the mind behind all that creativity. But these new-age marketers have changed the norm. Today, they are the latest attraction in the world of marketing. Their insight, charisma, and impressive followership make them the first choice of both business and the industry. Influencers may use any of the mediums (podcast, video, blog, site) and get your message out to your audience – without being backed by a bigger agency.
The trend that started with digital marketing is now influencing other industries also, such as Manufacturing, Education, etc – which has given rise to another concept called Influencer Marketing. Sticking to the concept of Digi Influence, today we are going to talk about the 2022’s top digital marketing influencers of the world. Each person on this list is known for her/his extraordinary industry-specific talents and the impact they have built with their unparalleled knowledge.
